A magician performs several tricks of varying skills (sleight of hand, misdirection, etc.).
This video is the result of my final project for Introduction to Film Production (Film 1). It was shot on 16mm Tri-X reversal film on a Bolex camera and edited on a Steenbeck. The audio was edited digitally and then transferred to magnetic tape for the final projection. It's presented here now after a telecine to create a digital copy of the film to combine with the audio.
Special thanks to Brian Brushwood and his show Scam School (along with accompanying books) for the inspiration and providing the knowledge on how to perform these tricks. Head on over to http://www.scamstuff.com to support him and learn how to perform the tricks in this video yourself.
