mag·i·cal (mj-kl) adj.
1. Of, relating to, or produced by magic.
2. Enchanting; bewitching: a magical night
Describing something as ‘magical’ always seems a little over the top – if not faintly absurd in the context of an actual magic show. Nevertheless, it’s at the core of what most of us try to achieve from an effect – which makes the theft of the word by what seems like every consumer electronics manufacturer on the planet somewhat confusing.
Quite often I’m asked how does a magician come up with new and fresh ideas to make their magic exciting enough to keep an audience captivated. I’m not going to say its easy all the time, however, personally I find I have times when I find it easier than other times. My analysis of this is that we all have ‘creative moments’.
