Ways to Improve Enhance Your Magic Tricks

October 29, 2008

For some people magic seems to be a thing that they most like because it entertains people in such a good way. I think that close-up magic is incredibly versatile. It can be used for walk around performances at parties and events, in street performances and for impromptu personal effects. When people meet magicians, they want to see magic. Even the biggest stage magicians are expected by the public to be able to perform close-up miracles of magic. Many feel that close-up magic tricks are the foundation of all magic skills and I second that motion.

Well here are the things that you need to keep in mind in order to get a closer look at close-up magic tricks:

#1 Master the sleight of hand – Do not merely study or learn sleight of hand; it must be mastered because it is the foundation of close-up magic tricks. Many magicians choose to concentrate on either sleight of hand with playing cards or coins. Close-up magic is not limited to these two areas, though. It is important that you master it for better performance and skill upgrade.

# 2 Bring stuff with You – Here, you need to carry one or two small items for performing at all times. Close-up magic tricks can be performed with common objects such as keys, coins, rubber bands, playing cards and many more items so this is not the inconvenience it may initially appear to be. The thing is we should always keep something for us to be ready for anything.

#3 Perform often – Practice makes perfect. Remember that true progress can only be forged through the fires of performances before actual audiences. You should always keep in mind that you need to always train to get familiar with your skill set. Magic tricks are great to learn, just make sure that you always get the chance to showcase it.

#4 Improve interpersonal skills – The real magic of magic is not in the trick itself but in the experience. The magician will create the experience with his actions and words. Interaction is always a key, although most people would give you some moments that can not be too good. Always think that your interpersonal skills should be polished for better overall performance.

#5 Study and learn from each performance – Now, the key to improvement is the honest and thorough examination of past performance with the intention of identifying weak areas. Improvise with objects at hand to stimulate creativity. Of course enable you to get better. You should always get time to practice and study, learn from your experience and get the job done. Your growth in magic tricks can be summed up with how you learn your own tricks.

Please Crowds with Magic Tricks

September 20, 2008

The truth about magic shows is that the show itself is part entertainment and part deception, not in a bad way though but performance-wise. A lot of the things that we witness or watch is made with misdirection and deception for our own entertainment of course. There are a lot of things that are in consideration of course but looking at it, we can see that there are a lot of ways that a performer or a magician can do for us to believe their so called magic. People are inclined to believe that “magic” can be the real thing but sometimes it is the other way around. We can be fooled by the kind of magic tricks that the magician or performer will do and most part of it can be really entertaining. We are used to believe that the magic shows can really be something that we can all be happy watching.

There are a lot of things that we can all see and of course enjoy in a magic show, people are used to watching the show and be filled with excitement once that drum roll hits the PA system. Then when the magician executes one of their magic tricks the crowd will be left in awe. Looking at it there are really things that we can learn from this performances, once of it is their timing and execution, every magic tricks has timing and well, execution. The reality of it is that when we have the chance to finally be in the stage and being the ones who are performing in front of the live audiences we all kind of try to relax and try to remember the timing and execution that the magic tricks requires. Enjoying the tricks can be a real joy to the masses and the crowd. There are real things that matter despite the performance uses tricks. The thing is with tricks is that it steps uses real-time execution; there are no simulation when you are making magic tricks.

We are all try to have in mind that with all things we see in a show, the magic tricks is always the number 1 arsenal of the performers or magicians. Imagine a singer who can’t sing or a dancer who can’t dance, a magician can’t do anything without its tricks, not necessary magic though but tricks. A person who wants to learn the arts of magic often try to emulate what they all see on other performance, not really copying but just trying to add it to their tools or their tricks. If one can make a trick that can be unique, other magicians would try to get the point of it and try to include it to their list of moves. It is nature for the magicians as they all try to share knowledge but not always. Magic tricks can be very much a good thing, because it entertains the audience, it can send the crowd into smiles and all that.

Another Magic Tricks Up on your Sleeves

September 20, 2008

They say the hand move faster than the eye, so as for magic tricks, most of its basis is made by the hand, misdirection is the key and with that let me say that magic tricks is one of the most fascinating performing arts there is known to man. Let me say that I want to salute those experts on performing and executing the magic tricks that they do to amuse audience and get loud applauses. Magic tricks are always a hard task to do that is for sure. A lot of people have thought that magic is really something deeper than just tricks, some say it is true some say it is not, there are different stories of course it depends on the one who understood it or to the one telling you about it. At first it can just be word of the mouth, but when you can have a first look at it, you’ll probably drop your jaw in disbelief, although at the show it seems to be so hard to do, when you see how it is played out you’ll be amazed.

Most performers?takes years just to perfect one arsenal that they can use, it takes months of practice just to know the right timing, execution and all that. Magic tricks can sure be hard but once learned can be fun to perform. It is not really as hard as rocket science so to speak, but rather just as hard as it looks but when executing, it’s all about the timing and the direction of the show or the performance. Looking into the wide world of magic tricks you’ll see how hard a single trick can be learned, more often the hard tricks are for the main events, the ohhs and ahhs have to wait for the main menu once the performance will draw to a close. The hocus pocus can start but the main course often to be save for last. They say that when you try to practice one trick you’ll be inclined on doing another in awe.

Sometimes the best tricks are those which are simple but can get the “I can’t believe you just did that?” type of look in the faces of your audience. The simpler the trick is the better, but if you want your audience to jump out of their seats you need to do more than just disappearing tricks, the bolder the better and sometimes the more dangerous the trick is the better the audience gets their focus in. Of course you always have to capture your audience imagination kind of like get their interest on a trick and then hit them with the best element there is, the element of surprise. Most of the good tricks are surprise tricks, kind of like what you don’t expect would likely to happen. Magic tricks are hard to learn when you go into deep details but for your own curiosity and amusement you should make a commitment on it, so that you can focus on it for sure.
