- Years in Magic
Im Arnel Renegado from Phillipines, and more than a magician i discover my self as a creator. I love to create new effect that is visual but simple and easy to learn.
How did you first get started in magic?
Since i was a child i already love magic, but i get interested with it when i buy my first gimmick deck of card, its a svengali deck.Watching magic performance on tv, and amaze how they do that makes me wonder if i can learn it too.and thats how i started magic.
What is your creative process - how do you come up with new effects and ideas?
I start to think first what i want to do if i want a vanishing effect or torn and restored, but mostly an idea just came in into my mind. Think an effect that no one think, what i mean is it has to be a mind blowing effect original, and start here. Always think how the trick can be more visual that my spectator would see it happen with no cover what so ever.
Which artists have inspired you the most in your work thus far?
Joel Phascall i like his Believe dvd so much. David blaine, and Alexander Koll'e.
What advice would you give to new performers just starting today?
Look for those effect that is visual, impromptu, and easy to do..cause that is magic goes, it has to be visual and happen right before your very eyes..and i promise you get more reactions.
