Some asked me how and why I evolved to become a digital iPad magician(if you are unsure about what iPad magic or digital magic is, read more about it here). Well, I always believe in my philosophy of performing modern magic that is modern classic. Keeping up with the trend of technology and combining it with magic is something that I always think about. Technological innovations such as projection, smartphones, holograms, iPad or digital tablets in general have been incorporated in many performing arts such as singing, drawing, dancing, etc. I know I must do the same in magic, too.
However, the unspoken struggle with being a professional magician in general is that we almost have to do everything by ourselves. We are our own director, choreographer, music composer, apparatus designer,etc… Therefore, not surprisingly, the major barrier of entry to becoming a digital iPad magician is the ability to code and the knowledge of programming which is not easy to grasp in a short period of time as it requires systematic training. We have to learn programming by ourselves if we want to be a digital magician or iPad magician performing iPad magic or digital magic. Nonetheless, I took the challenge of overcoming this major barrier. Fortunately, I have had much success in 3 months’ time, which definitely cannot be achieved without the help of the professional magicians around me.
Speaking of programming, some magicians think iPad magic or digital magic is all about that. Well, learning to programme is an essential part of becoming an iPad magician or digital magician but it is not everything. Proper application of magic theories and routining of iPad magic or digital magic effects are even more important as iPad magic or digital magic is very easy to be bad(if you would like to know how to differentiate between good and bad iPad magic, read more about it here).
With all things said, I am still learning and growing. As a digital magician or iPad magician, I will always strive to push back the frontier of iPad magic or digital magic.
Thank you for reading and I would love to show you my digital iPad magic in person!
