Magic Tricks That Need No Explanation
Have a quick look at this, it is a great street magic video, featuring very good magic tricks, well produced, and Hezi Dean clearly is a great, confident magician. Click on the video below, but turn the sound off. Then come back to us for a chat:
If you haven’t watched the video and are still reading, STOP! Go back and watch it, it is definitely worth a watch.
So… I take it you have watched it now. If not don’t worry, this blog post still puts the point across just not as nicely!
The whole point of this blog post is not to show you magic tricks that are so obvious they do not need explaining. It is more on the topic of how good magic tricks transcend the language barrier and need no explaining. I bet you watched the video and sank into his presentation watching every move, If you turned the sound off, the point will be very clear, even if you didn't, Hezi was speaking in Israeli but it did not confuse the issue if you didn't understand him. Hezi's presentation speaks for itself. This video is a great example of how good magic tricks need no words to be appreciated. Thank you, Hezi Dean!
Does this sort of universal communication come across in the magic tricks you perform?
Could you perform your close up act in conditions where your spectators can't hear you?
What small tweaks to your presentation would make each of your magic tricks easier to understand without patter?
