Ok lets go with your logic here and say camera tricks are just fine.... yes!!!! That means I am now talented enough to get on tv and become a millionaire and famous!!! I mean who can't edit videos and look amazing! Who cares about live performance? I mean the whole point of magic on tv is for the camera to be the spectator at home's eye but edited if we can pause their eyeball then lets do it!! Who really cares if we can't actually do it live?
Oh wait, the spectator does because they actually want to see us fool them and create an impossible illusion right in front of them....
oh well, so much for my tv show....
The whole point of not using camera tricks is a trust you build between you and your television audience. They know anyone can use camera tricks and look amazing, Neo is the proof of that, who is btw far more amazing than Angel.
But they trust magicians are not using camera tricks and are simply performing near a camera, but NOT USING IT AS A GIMMICK. Its not like in real life in person live you can "pause" or "cut" or "point" a person's view. The closest you can possibly get to that is misdirection which magicians make use of a lot, but thats not anywhere close to being the same thing at all.
Angel RELIES on camera tricks. ANY OTHER MAGICIAN that has been on tv that has used camera tricks probably used them so few times you could count them on one hand I would bet. Angel uses them sometimes multiple times in a single episode occasionally. He is violating trust between a television magic audience and magicians, and in the process making magic look stupid on tv because everyone assumes its ALL just camera trickery.
Then he also swears he is not using camera trickery like magicians on tv have done before, but you know what? Those magicians almost always were actually truly NOT using camera tricks!!! Its crazy I know... I watched an oil and water card routine done like a million times at work on tv and the guy says that there is no camera trickery to build up the presentation, and guess what? There is no camera trickery! Angel on the other hand would do a camera trick after saying there is no camera trickery. So it makes it even worse.
Finally when magicians do use camera tricks, its not ok. It doesn't matter if its Burton or Angel. But it is MUCH worse to use them constantly and multiple times than to just have one or two during all of your televised performances. Anyway still its just as bad for anyone to use them.
No one has said "Angel sucks because he uses camera tricks!" and then said "Copperfield is awesome, did you see that camera trick he did?!" That would be really hypocritical, stupid, and idiotic, and you will not find a post like that by anyone, I promise you. I would be very surprised if you found that.
