Part of my work as a magician is in designing and creating magical and/or special effects for theatre and film productions. As well as instructing actors in the execution of these effects.
Usually the creations are made in collaboration with the director and scenographer of the actual theatre piece. It may be a specific effect they have in mind or which is written in the manuscript, for which I create a technical solution for. Or it may be a certain magical, surrealistic or even violent atmosphere they are searching for and in collaboration we create the suitable effects to bring forth the desired emotions and ambience.
