How to present a magic trick

One of the common things you might hear from magicians about performing a great magic trick is the need not just for great technique, but also for great presentation.

First, what do we mean by presentation when it comes to magic tricks? We not only want to impress the audience with technique, but also to leave them amazed and entertained. How can we do it?


Below, I’m going to share with you 7 tips on presenting a magic trick!


1. Master the technique for the trick or prop 

Before we can even begin to think about flourishes or added elements of our performance, we must first master the technique of the trick until it becomes second nature.

Once we do that, it will free up our brains to add on some creative elements to our performance. Some tricks or techniques are more difficult to master – particularly in close-up magic, like magic tricks with cards, coins, sponge balls and cups. With others, the technique or manual manipulation might be easier, especially if they have an automatic mechanism or can be operated electronically. Either way, technique must be mastered first since a mistake or an exposure of the secret during the performance will wreck everything else. 


2. Be a storyteller

Great technique is crucial, but technique alone can be boring.

Once technique is mastered, start thinking of creative ways to present the trick to the audience. The best magicians performing and presenting a magic trick are storytellers. A story can help you bring the trick to the next level – from great to amazing! Also, storytelling can help you add your signature to that specific magic trick. 


3. Build expectation

You can build the audience’s expectations by explaining at the outset what they are about to see – the more outrageous or unbelievable, the better.

Build expectation - Magic tricks

Example: “I have a deck of cards in my hands, and I am going to read the mind of someone today. So I would like to ask someone to pick a card…. Please, take one and show it to everyone!” (For instance, one audience member shuffles the deck and hands it back to you, and then another audience member takes a Seven of Diamonds, but you don’t see it.) 

4. Maintain the audience’s attention

Develop the trick by adding some meaning to it. Here you may insert your storytelling abilities.

Modulate your voice – raising it to capture the audience’s attention. You are about to impart important information! They are all ears. Move your head back and forth, making eye contact with audience members. This also can serve to distract the audience from whatever manipulation you might be doing to the trick or deck of cards with your hands.
Example: “Since I was a little boy, I had a love of cards. So I started studying this amazing world of magic with cards. As I grew older, I discovered that I had such a deep and magical connection with the cards that if just one card was missing from the deck, I could figure out which one it was.” 


5. Remind the audience what just took place in order to build expectations even higher

Example: “Remember, you just mixed the deck of cards. The other person took one card without me seeing it. So it is impossible for me to know what the card is. But as I told you before, I have a mystical connection with the deck of cards.” 

6. Slow down the rhythm – lower expectations

Lower the audience’s expectations and reactions in order to set them up for the grand finale.

For instance, pretend to make a mistake or to struggle on the delivery on the original expectation that you had set up.
Example: “I can sense the card that you took and that the one that is missing is a…. Five… no, Seveeen… no, I apologize, this has never happened to me before. I can’t sense the card very clearly. It is a Four of Spades? No? It is not?” 


7. Grand finale

Finish with a grand finale that lifts reactions to the highest level yet – revealing that you were in control the whole time, but with a twist.

You zigged when the audience zagged. For instance, once they show you the card – the Seven of Diamonds – the audience will think that you messed up. Expectations will have dropped very low. This is where you amaze them with the reveal – the big effect! Example: “You are right! And as I mentioned, my connection with the cards is so powerful, that I can predict which one will go missing.” Here you pick up an envelope that was sitting on your magic table in view the entire time. You open the envelope and show them a piece of paper that reads – “The only card missing in this deck is the Seven of Diamonds!” 

I believe these points are the most important ones for developing any magic trick or routine. Always practice the techniques, the story and a great, unexpected finale to entertain and amaze your audience!

Illusions and tricks

Optical illusions and tricks

“Our senses deceive us” 

Our perception of reality can often be tricked by our very own senses. What we see in any given situation is often first shaped by our concepts before we even begin to process the situation. However, with some analysis and a comprehending mind, the situation may begin to look different than what we first thought. 


As an exercise on this tendency of our minds, below I have included some visual optical illusions and tricks that play with our senses. The tricks are then followed by steps that can help us see how we tend to do the same things in life situations – and how to overcome this tendency. 

6 Optical illusions and tricks that you may want to watch more than one!


In these optical illusions and tricks, you will see that at first the images seem to show something. But after analyzing the image with deeper insight on what is going on in your mind, the image will then seem to show something else, revealing how our senses can deceive us. 

Visual optical illusion No. 1: Catch the black spot. 

Look at the image of any dot and try to catch the black dots. 

Optical illusions and tricks

In reality there are no black dots. The image of black squares and white dots creates the illusion of adjacent black dots as we are moving our eyes. 


Visual optical illusion No. 2: The flying square 

Focus all of your attention on the small square in the very middle of this picture. What do you see? 

Optical illusions and magic tricks

The middle square with the small squares seems to move a little bit, like it’s flying, like a 3D picture, right? 

But really nothing is moving here. It is a static picture. Look at it again. The blurry spots make the solid or non-blurry square create an illusion to make it seem like it is flying. 

Visual optical illusion No. 3: Moving squares 

Look at any one of these small or big squares. 

Optical illusions and magic tricks

It doesn’t matter where you put your eyes, it looks like the squares are moving, right? 


Really this is a flat picture. Look at it again. Put your attention on only one spot and don’t move your eyes

It is not moving, right? What we are seeing is the sensation that they are moving because of the way the picture is designed with the shadows, with black lines drawn in different directions.

Visual optical illusion No. 4: What do you see in this picture? 

Optical illusions and tricks

Did you see a few trees? Perfect! 


Now look at the picture again, but take more time. Can you see the back profile of the woman’s head and shoulders as she looks to her left? 


Visual optical illusion No. 5: The hypnotic ball 

Stay on this picture as long as you like. Is the ball moving or is the wall moving?

Optical illusions and magic tricks

The picture is static. It is the colors and the way the lines are painted in curves that make our eyes see a small movement. Are you mesmerized by this? Look at the picture one more time. 

Visual optical illusion No. 6: What do you see? 

Are the two friends gossiping?

Optical illusions and magic tricks

I don’t know if they are gossiping, but look at the picture one more time and try to see the three white vases. 


Here is the real trick!

Now, think about the images as if they were situations. 

Two people may have a different concept about the same situation (image) and they may not be wrong. Their concepts are based on their senses and experiences, but remember, our senses can deceive us! 

Then who is right? How can we reach an understanding of the truth?

  • First, don’t rush to judgment. 
  • Second, stay with the situation to see if you can go deeper to analyze if there is something you are not seeing or if there is another way to perceive it. 
  • Third, understand that while you are experiencing reality or a situation one way, other people have other ways of looking at reality based on their own senses and experiences.

Finally, when we understand that our minds are capable of shifting our understanding of reality with the help of new insights, then we will be able to better relate to our fellow human beings, ourselves and the world around us. 

Remember … “Our senses deceive us.” Magically our minds can create an illusion that feels like reality, but in the end, it’s just a trick.

The Virtual Magic Shows

Are virtual magic shows worth it? 

For sure we will never replace the great sensation experienced during live magic shows!
But just as certain is our ability as magicians to reinvent ourselves doing what we love!
 
virtual magic shows

Every change in life brings a challenge, and the best way to face the challenge is to be open to change! 


COVID-19 has impacted the world and the way we interact in our daily lives. Every aspect of our lives has been changed. The magic industry is no exception. Live performances have been canceled, and we magicians are facing a new reality. That includes one of the biggest challenges and questions now before us: How do I reach audiences with my magic shows?

Online Virtual Magic Shows  

Recently I started seeing an increase in the use of online technology for live meetings as a tool to perform virtual magic shows. There are many platforms for virtual meetings that magicians started to use, but the most well-known is Zoom. 


Magicians and customers adapting to a virtual system

virtual magic shows

With this change, not only do magicians need to re-invent themselves and adapt. Our audiences do, too.

We magicians have had to change our shows to deliver them in front of a camera instead of rows of people giving instantaneous feedback. Instead of calling people up to the stage to participate in tricks, we now must deliver routines completely on our own in an empty room, looking at a screen or into a camera for reactions. 

Audiences have had to adjust, too. Instead of experiencing the thrill of a live magic show in a theater, school, library or other public place, they have had to watch a show on their screens. 

Still, like everything in life, these new circumstances bring challenges and also opportunities. Let’s consider some of them.


Virtual Online Magic Shows raise an ethical question: 


As professional magicians, we care about our audiences. In moments like this, we also worry about stabilizing our business income during times of great economic downturn. In the process, we must ask ourselves – in our eagerness to continue doing what we love and keeping our magic businesses afloat – are we damaging the image of magic shows by jeopardizing our audience’s experience? In that sense, are virtual online magic shows worth it?

After analyzing this situation and trying virtual shows a few times, I encountered numerous difficulties. As we move forward through this new reality, I feel confident that as an industry we will address these challenges. 

In the meantime, I’ve compiled some questions, pros and cons as well as an alternative related to online virtual magic shows.

VIRTUAL MAGIC SHOWS – PROS

 
  • 1- Social distance. It is safe: This is the most important! Both the audience and the magician can respect social distancing, with the audience members watching from the safety of their homes. For this reason alone, I believe it is worth it for audiences to give online shows a chance and for magicians to keep adapting their shows for an online audience. 
  • 2- An online magic show can target specific styles: A virtual online show can incorporate a specific magic theme and talent by the magician. For example, if an audience likes card tricks, kids magic shows for birthday parties, magic shows for corporate virtual meetings or comedy magic or illusions, the customer can pick a favorite style from the comforts of home or virtual office. 
  • 3- The private virtual magic show can be customized: The virtual magic show can be customized for a specific group or audience of friends and family for kids birthday parties, corporate meetings or other gatherings. 
  • 4- Virtual online magic shows are great for home and family settings: Many magicians are selling tickets for their shows for a Friday or Saturday night live online show.
    The great thing about this type of show is that the tickets are sold through one code: that means that for a $10-$20 ticket, for example, the whole family can enjoy a magic show from home – and with popcorn! 
  • 5- There’s no limit to creativity! This is my favorite: After a stressful week, a family can enjoy an online virtual magic show with fun experiments – like converting the whole living room into a magic theater before bringing the magician into their home through the television screen!


VIRTUAL MAGIC SHOWS – CONS 


As we magicians reinvent ourselves through the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn, we have been forced to find alternatives to our previous live performances. There have been some bumps along the way. It’s good to talk about them in order to find solutions and alternatives moving forward. 

  • 1. Internet Connections: Magicians and customers need to be prepared before the start of a live online show with good internet connections on both ends! Many times, this has led to problems when the connection has gone down at the start or in the middle of a show. It doesn’t matter how great the show is, when the magic of the internet doesn’t work, the frustration can be real. Be prepared – and be patient! 
  • 2. Quality of the video and sound: We are still exploring new ways to bring magic shows to audiences. With some of the available online meeting technology or platforms now being used for magic shows, the images are blurry for shows and the sound is not sufficient for the magician’s voice or music. The poor quality can ruin the show or fail to capture the attention of the viewers – leading them to get bored and turn it off. 
  • 3. Limits on audience participation: Many styles of stage magic call for audience participation. With online virtual magic shows, the magician might be able to talk or interact with the audience, but viewers will not be able to handle tricks or be part of the show as before. However some magic tricks can be done virtually like mentalism or predictions. 
  • 4. Signing into accounts: This is a big one! Despite advances with online technology, all of us, including me, have run into troubles signing into accounts to watch desired movies or to access other entertainment. As magicians turn to online meeting platforms as an outlet for virtual online magic shows, multiple problems have surfaced:
a. Security: personal information has been exposed on these platforms after they have been hacked, according to news reports.
b. Participants encounter delays with the system when signing in or with the program connecting to the internet and their television.
c. Synchronizing all the devices can be a challenge.
d. Meeting interruptions: all of the above issues, plus tardiness, can cause some audience members to sign in late for the show after it has started, interrupting the entire performance.
e. Time: In some cases, free accounts are good only for 30-40 minutes. The magician needs to pay attention so that the customer can re-start the meeting. Or pay for extra time. 


VIRTUAL MAGIC SHOWS - ONLINE ALTERNATIVES 


We magicians will keep trying in order to bring the best magical experience to our audiences in a safe and responsible way. In my next blog post, I will discuss a great alternative to online virtual magic shows that I have found to work well: a customized online magic show video! Stay tuned for more information!
