Three Close-up Routines for Christmas 2016

Each year I perform some magic during the Christmas season. In fact, this is pretty much the only time I perform during the year. This is the third year where I have focused on three routines of four effects each and I’m trying to improve and refine them each year. These are the three routines that I chose for this year and here are performances for two of my best friends who really love magic: Aj and Jeff. I switched out 4 of the 12 effects from 2015 and hopefully each year I am getting better.

I also worked on the camera angle this year and tried to focus more on the actual effects rather than me or the spectators. The downside of this is that you see any moves in minute detail, which is not what the spectator sees necessarily. In a perfect world, I’d have two cameras, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
