i have been doing close up magic for a while now, and i have gotten pretty good at it. however, i am thinking about going into stage effects. (now i know their was another post that was kind of like this, but this, as you will tell, is different)
so, my first question: how do i get into stage magic? where do i start? are their dvds i can buy? or books i can get? i would like to learn stage tricks, yes, but i would also like to learn how to perform stage magic. and how to pull it off. any tips or ideas would be great.
for example. with close up walk around magic, if you are out with your friends, you might do 10-15 minutes of magic. (i'll usually do about this much at the bowling ally or movie theator.) for walk around at a barmitzvah or restuarant, depending on the situation, i'll usually do 5-30 min, like i said, depending on the situation.
if i am serounded by people, i'll probably do a card trick, rubberband trick, or tricks like disjointed. if their are only people infront of me, i'll be more likely to do coin in soda, bill switch, ect.
So, i would like to get into stage magic, but i would also like to learn about it. are their different types of stage magic? (ex: performing for 50 people, or pulling a david copperfield and performing for a LOT of people!)
or like going to a school and performing for a classroom, apossed to having the entire school go to the auditorium, to perform. (chances are you would be doing different tricks, for the different audiances, and the amount of people) Any info of where i can get started in stage magic, and how i can progress, would be wonderful. thanks!
