FUUUUUUUUUCK..... Get to the fucking point. More and more magic trailer nowadays, do way too much "atmospheric introduction" Most recent example: Five by Daniel Garcia and Marcus Eddie.
Oh no, its not a trailer. It's a preview video. What's the fucking difference? More than 40 seconds to get to the magic. And it's not even seen at all. Stop teasing you bloody Fuckers. Show the routines and be done with it. 40 seconds, it sure feels a lot longer. I'm not interested in seeing blurry images of cars and streets.
I could give a rat's ass about audience reactions to tricks I don't get to see. In fact I don't even give a flying fuck about any audience reactions.
I would get all pissed off if it wasn't Daniel Garcia and Marcus Eddie. I actually think they are talented and good. So I'm interested in what they got to offer. Instead I get out of focus slow motion shit.
Man, get a tripod, a decent camera guy and be interesting! I like it old school. Speaking of horrible trailers for magic effects. Peter Loughran's Body Swap Illusion is a masterpiece of lazy ass boredom. Almost 50 seconds (that's nearly a minute) before we get a SLIDESHOW.
By the way: What a weird ass illusion is that? I can see only one application where this would be cool. At an erotic fair and trade show. Because then you could have the participants prove that their body parts got swapped. Finally transsexuals can shine, bringing hope and a positive message about being whoever you want to be.
Back to the topic... Wanna see a good magic trailer? Check out pretty much everything by Axel Hecklau.
The intro is minimal, it even shows the trick, and then, without cuts and fancy editing the routine is demonstrated.
Bravo Herr Hecklau, you are doing it well.
To all the other... LEARN FROM IT!
