Magic is not CGI. It is not editing. It is slight of hand. It is large stage illusions. It's not Avatar or the Matrix. It's not Clapton's greatest hits or Mozart's fifth. It's not the working of a smart phone or a TD52 steam trap.
I couldn't disagree more. Think of how mind-blowing and magical the first CG effects would have been to audiences? Nowadays we're not so impressed by CG, but that doesn't mean there still aren't amazing, awe-inspiring things to be found in movies and music etc.
I'm not sure why you want to limit it so much to what is expected of magic and what has always been done? We need to let magic develop and grow and reaching out into other artforms can only be good for magic.
