Understanding Magic: Magic Coin Tricks

October 31, 2008

People has been really on the contrary on learning magic, there area lot of magic tricks known to accommodate the crowd, there are disappearing acts, card tricks, paper tricks, etc. But what really grab attention are the simple ones. Coin magic tricks are a great way to get started in magic as you don’t need specialty items to perform them. If you know some coin magic tricks and want to perform and entertain others, then follow these steps and you’ll be on your way to becoming a real coin magician. There are actually easy steps on performing magic coin tricks, it is easy and fun and really a good starting base on learning more magic tricks. You should be accustomed to it and I am sure that you will have fun on doing it for sure.

Ok, one main thing about magic coin tricks is selecting the right coins. You should have a good selection of coins on hand. Make sure you have coins that fit well in your hands for the types of tricks you’ll be performing. Have some silver coins as well as some gold-colored coins for contrast if you’re going to be performing tricks that involve multiple coins. Your selection on the coins will pretty much help you on executing your tricks that will later be one of the most important parts of your performance.

Another important thing to keep in mind knows your audience, I think it is pretty much a basic thought, know your audience. If you’re going to be performing the tricks in front of adults, use more advanced tricks. If your audience is children, go for more visually stimulating tricks and tricks that involve audience participation. You should be able to choose an audience that can be “game” on your tricks. Remember that with these kinds of performance there are actually a lot at stake, if you fail your reputation as a magician will be on the downside.

If you want to practice and improve I suggest performing some tricks in front of friends and asking for advice. They can give you tips on what works and what doesn’t, so that when you get in front of a real audience, you’ll have well-tested tricks. They’ll be your audience that can give you constructive criticism, although a lot of it may come to the wire with some polish, you need to justify your magic coin tricks in front of a crowd that you know, they will be able to give you your good points and bad, so that when you are going to perform live you’ll have a good idea on what to expect overall.

The main thing is you should practice your tricks until you have them down to perfection. Practice performing in front of the mirror so you can see what the audience will see. Prepare your magic show with an opener, middle and closer. Your opener should be a quick trick that takes under a minute to perform. Your next tricks, the middle should be more involved and more complicated. Finally, your closing trick should be the most impressive, as it’s the one your audience will most likely remember. Making sure that you can take your audience breath away can be a great finale. Remember to make good use of the knowledge you have upon doing your tricks. It is a good move to always give you the boost on performing these magic tricks.

Performing Arts with Your Very Own Magic Tricks

October 30, 2008

It’s not like an easy task, having to know more magic tricks can be a good thing but how about performing it? Any magician who performs a routine, whether it is on the stage or on the streets, knows exactly in what order his tricks will be done. These orders are not thrown together randomly. In fact, a tremendous amount of thought goes into arranging the order of these tricks. This tutorial will help you to understand how to organize the tricks in your routine and how to transition seamlessly from one to the next. Magic tricks are performance based and if you are a struggling magician, you should know better. You need a plan, some sort of a game plan to make your show be on a high note, so let me give you some steps that would be very helpful.

Ok, so let’s start with the pre-show preparation, before performing, list the tricks you know how to perform. It is really important because you need to make an order of what you would perform in front of your live audience, most people would not care about it, but let me tell you that it is important that you pay close attention to this. The details and whatnot, you should also arrange the tricks in order from easiest to hardest. In that way the hardest will be played as your finale, the one that would be your encore. Of course you don’t want to perform something that would be an easy cheap trick; you want something riveting, so putting the hardest as the last can be helpful.

Next are you needed to choose a small amount of them and decide how they are best organized? Remember that a magic routine should seem like one big trick, not a series of small tricks. Transitioning seamlessly will not allow spectators to think you are doing something else. It will all seem like one trick. So you better take note on this tip and see what you can do with it. Play with your tricks and be sure to make some good moves on it. Start with a card trick that involves the spectator memorizing a card. It will be a good filler and would entertain the crowd, plus the interaction with you and the crowd will be a nice touch into your magic show.

Continue with that chosen card until eventually letting the spectator keep the card. Since you no longer have the card, you are forced to move onto another series of tricks. See how this works? You organize them in a logical fashion that allows you do present multiple tricks as one and then seamlessly move on. Now that the card tricks are over, bring out a coin, or take your routine into another direction. Lastly, always leave them wanting more! Stop transitioning after you reach the climax of your performance. At their biggest reaction, no matter what it comes, walk away. It will give them the same effect that a cliffhanger in a television show or movie can give. With that kind of performance I think you’ll be known noted and will be in good standing. Your magic tricks will be much appreciated and you’ll have the crowd captured for sure.

Performing Magic Tricks is Part of the Act

October 24, 2008

On every magic shows, we all witness everything that goes down. It is fun to have magic shows having entertainment on their performances as well it is some kind of a bonus, in my opinion. There comes a time when doing magic tricks is no longer enough and the aspiring magician wishes to perform magic tricks. The difference is simple. When one performs, it is a coherent routine of magic tricks crafted into a single work of entertainment, while doing a trick is a mere demonstration. While it is easy to describe how to perform magic, the actual practice can be challenging.  It is more than just difference in verbs, but its more of having the 2 words have different impact to the one uses them. Right now the average magician would not settle for just having to be able to execute a trick, they want to flavor on their craft and actually perform.

So, what does it take to make a good performance on magic shows? Well, first, you need to choose a performing persona. The great magician Jean Eugene Robert-Houdini once said “A magician is an actor playing the part of a magician,” and this is essentially true. Every successful magician portrays a character when they perform. That is why most of us are entertained and somewhat satisfied on the kind of performance each magician does. It is a really good starting point on magic shows.

Now, next up is evaluating all potential magic tricks for a performance against the character that is being created. Simply ask if it makes since for the character to perform these magic tricks. For example, a mad scientist character would probably not mesh well with card tricks while a riverboat gambler would. It is all about setting your priorities straight and knowing what to do on certain situations. Establish a link between the selected magic tricks. The overall goal is to create an entertaining routine with magic tricks that flow together in a sensible manner. It is often helpful to establish a theme to connect the magic tricks. It is important to know those by heart so that you will know your way on the stage.

Now, the next step will be quite easy. Arrange the magic tricks in an order that maintains the entertainment but allows for the “dirty work” of magic to be accomplished. For example, if an effect requires a live weasel to be strapped to one’s chest, the weasel should be produced and freed before the effect that fires a cannonball into one’s torso. Acquire the proper wardrobe for the character being portrayed. Make sure that any required props make sense for the character as well. Study acting and, if the performance is meant to be funny, study comedy too, if seriously pursing magic as a career, take classes in performance skills and stage craft. Performing magic tricks can really be a good thing as long as you know how to really perform your act.

Magic Tricks: The SwitcherooCArd Trick

October 17, 2008

Believe me when I say that one of the best magic tricks out there are card tricks, yes, it never goes out of style and is always performed by a lot of magicians. It is one of the oldest magic tricks in the book and some of them are easy to learn. It is said that once you are able to do some basic magic tricks, you can be on your way on learning other magic tricks that would be a great point for you as you go a long. So let, I give you one of the easiest and fun magic tricks out there. The Switcheroo card trick, basically it is a switching trick that has never failed to impress the audience. So, learning it can be a good step to fins your way on the magic trick genre.

Preparations First

Ok, before starting the card trick, find the two black 6’s and the two black 9’s. (Note that the 6 of Spades, the 6 of Clubs, the 9 of Spades, and the 9 of Clubs.) Then, take the 6 of Spades and the 9 of Clubs and place one of them on the top of the deck and the other on the bottom. Keep the 6 of clubs and the 9 of spades separate. It is important to follow these instructions and prepare it for you to be ready on executing your magic tricks.
Performing the Feat

Ok, now read carefully so you know what to do first, show the deck of cards to your audience. Hold the 6 of clubs and the 9 of spades in front of the person. Ask them to tell you what cards they are. They will say the 6 of clubs and the 9 of spades, of course. Ask them if they are sure. They will say that they are sure. Then hold up either of the cards and ask them what card it is. After they respond, place that card in the middle of the deck. Now do the same with the other card. It is imperative that you follow the steps as it is and do not make any sudden change or else you’ll be messed up.

Next, once both cards are inside the deck, place it down on the table and tell the person to tap the deck three times. After that ask them if they have any magic moon dust, or anything that you can come up with to make it seems entertaining. If they say, no say you will loan them some and reach into your pocket and pretend to sprinkle dust on the cards. If they say yes, tell them there’s no such thing as magic moon dust. Now rub your hands together and blow on them so your fingers are slightly moist. Performance wise it is an important part of the trick.  Nest up is picking up the deck by putting your thumb on top and your other fingers on bottom. Hold the deck very lightly. Swing the deck back and forth, and on the third swing throw the deck to your other hand, but make sure you hold onto the top and bottom card. Your moistened fingers will help.

To finish off, after all that, your victim will still remember the cards, but only vaguely. When you show them the 6 of spades and 9 of clubs that you “pre-placed” they will be astounded, unless they have an awesome memory, it is really all about execution for this magic trick so it is pretty much important to make it as real as possible to make it worthwhile.
