The other day I was thinking to myself, do the laymen remember the tricks I did to them? I mean, I DO remember the tricks I did, but are they memorable enough to the spectator? is the spectator going to remember you as a magician? or the tricks itself??? mmmm.... Take "here then there"(card transposition) and the ACR for example... Obviuosly a lot of us have practiced the ACR we do, because it's more complex than a simple "transposition" and it has to have a nice flow etc...., but have you notice that sometimes simple tricks(yet powerful to their eyes) like "here then there" tend to impress more the laymen than a well structurate ACR? A few months ago (when I performed ACR without a lot of patter) a few girls came to me and asked me to show them a trick, ( I had showed them some tricks in the past, ACR and Here then there.)and the first thing they told me was... "hey could you do the trick were I held a car, and then , and the, you change it with the card in your hand??? please please please" And inside me I was like "what!!! what about the ACR I did, don't you remember it'? anyway that's when I thought "how can I make a trick powerfull or nice enough for them to remember"? That's when I started to use some patter with my ACR ( a love story involving the card ) and now they remember it like "could you do me the trick( haha they remember it as trick, not a WHOLE routine) where I picked a boyfriend??? Anyway, If you guys could answer the following questions I think we can learn something... 1.- What are the tricks that your spectators remember the most from you, try to explain why are they so memorable... 2.-what are the tricks that they usually dont remember a,d those that you wich them to remember... 3.- What woud you do to make a trick more memorable to them??? THat's all thanks for reading. Cheers!
