Okay, that title is a bit deceptive. The reality is, it is 365 magic movies in a 12 months. They could sound the identical, however the reality is, I do know I will not be capable of get one video per day achieved. However over the course of the 12 months, there can be 365 movies, if no more.
The subsequent query is, why? LOL. That is an excellent query. There are a number of causes. One is publicity. One other is it is a problem. A 3rd, and one which I wasn't anticipating, it is enhancing my magical ability units. However the principle one is publicity. And I am approaching this in a really unorthodox approach. I am placing the movies up on a number of social media websites: Fb, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, and extra. And I am placing them up on worldwide social media websites as nicely. I simply did my first Russian video, and I am going to observe that up with a Norwegian, Swedish, Italian, and French model of assorted movies.
The magic movies are usually brief. Although a few of them have longer routines. A lot of the materials can be stuff that's now not in my working repertoire, nevertheless, a few of the materials is discovering a brand new place in my present. There are two issues to this point within the first 20 movies that basically struck me. One was the Linking Hearts. I had this for years, and by no means used it. I pulled it out strictly for the video and was astonished by the variety of views and feedback it acquired. Clearly, it was an impact that folks might relate to. As a good friend of mine mentioned, “it is so significantly better than silly rings! Individuals can determine with hearts and it opens a world of prospects for tales and displays.” Okay, I am bought.
The subsequent merchandise was a reasonably astonishing Monte impact which has a whopper of an ending. I noticed my good friend Bob Sheets do that a couple of years again. He had a barely totally different ending to his, but it surely was no much less a fooler. I inherited the impact from a good friend who handed away, so I made a decision to study it for the video. It is simply killer. I'll submit each of these movies under.
I'll try to create a ‘magician's solely’ web page in regards to the Magic 365 movies. Which could have data on every of the assorted results and the place they are often discovered, whether or not they're business gadgets, or in books, or authentic creations. I am going to try to credit score people appropriately as nicely. I haven't got that able to go but, it is coming.
If you're questioning what this has to do with ‘magic historical past’, nicely to be frank, tons. Over the course of the 12 months, there can be loads of historic items within the line-up. In a approach, virtually all of the magic we do is steeped in magic historical past. Take the One Cup and One Ball thriller created by Al Wheatley. It is such a typical piece at present, we overlook about it is historical past. And naturally, it was a variation of the basic Cups and Balls, which is tons of, if not 1000's of years previous.
One factor that I have never actually but identified is that I'll finally be posting ‘variants’ of the episodes. For instance, the video that's on Fb, could also be totally different from the one on Twitter or TikTok. As I construct an viewers, I hope that folks will get hold of the variants. Additionally, I am hoping to open a dialog with viewers as nicely, even taking requests. That is a part of the problem actually. If somebody speaks up and says, “are you able to do one thing with a sweet bar, or do one thing with tissue paper” or no matter, I am going to see what I can give you. Granted, there could also be present materials to select from, so in these circumstances, why re-invent the wheel? However in different circumstances, why not create one thing new, or some new variation of an older routine.
So my mates, please take pleasure in, Magic 365 this 12 months and past!
