This week I decided to look into card magic. I looked through Youtube and found one that I hadn’t seen before to allow myself to learn something new within the project.
What are “Card Magic Tricks”?
Card Magic, also known as card manipulation, is a type of magical illusion that creates illusional effects using ever-so-slight techniques of hand movements involving playing cards. This form of magic usually happens close-up, and is usually a part of street magic.
My Learning Process
I felt as though learning a magic trick that involved a deck of cards was an easier trick that would make starting out a bit easier. However, as I go along with my magic tricks, I will try more advanced tricks. The trick that I chose to do was one put on youtube by MLT Magic Tricks. This trick involved finding the king of diamonds, however, you can ask a person to pick a card and be able to find that card within the deck. I had practiced this trick about ten (10) times before I went to my boyfriend to show him what I had learnt. Once I had performed the trick for him and saw his amusement, I knew that this was a trick that I could use for this assignment.
I practiced a few more times before recording the video that I would use to demonstrate my learning at the end of the semester. haven’t decided if the video will be more of a “how to” kind of video or if it will be one where you have to try and solve how the magic tricks were done. I am interested to hear your thoughts on what should be done!
I also came across this video the other day of a magic dragon on Americas Got Talent. His work is very entertaining to watch and he does card tricks so I thought this was a perfect video to share on this post! Everyone, meet Piff the Magic Dragon!
