The Portal to the Future of
All Things Magic
is a site for magicians and for lovers of magic. Everyone knows what a
magician is but not everyone knows what a lover of magic is. Well, there
are people who love the theater who have never acted on stage; there are
people who love opera, who can't sing a note. There are people who love
music but can't play a cymbal! There are people who love ballet but have
two left feet! A lover of magic is a person who loves to watch magic and
maybe even learn how to perform a simple effect or two. In short, a lover
of magic is someone who wants to be entertained by magic. Either watching
magic or performing magic. We're building a fun, online community for
sharing, watching, reading, buying, auctioning, selling, learning and
communicating throughout the world.
Many of our
esteemed Panel of Magic Advisors started out by watching a magician perform
and were hooked. On this site you will find a host of things to do with
magic. Reviews on magical products, a list of reputable magic dealers
who stock these products and links to them. Stories and articles on well
known magicians and not so well known magicians. Links to every valuable
magic resource on the Web.
There will be short biographies on magicians in your area or country. There will be cross-references on what they do and their specialties. This section will help you decide whom to hire for your event. This can be a birthday party in your own home or a full scale magic theater show lasting two hours - and everything else in between. We can actually arrange the talent for the event (and every detail you might need assistance with) or we can point you to talent suppliers and agencies for your needs.
MAGIC IS UNIVERSAL
There is a section on magical happenings around the globe. What magic conventions are taking place or will be taking place. We have contributions from some of the leading names in magic. There are places to go if you are serious about learning to become a magician. Our Internet Hall of Fame section will give you a brief background on the history of magic and the many great innovators and performers of previous generations, as well as information on today's stars.
Click on the
organizations section and we will tell you about magical Organizations
and Societies around the world. Here at Magic Web Channel, we believe
everyone should join as many magic clubs as possible, in particular, the
International Brotherhood of Magicians (IBM), the Society of American
Magicians (SAM) and our own Internet Magic Federation (IMF). Besides enjoying
all of the many benefits of membership, you will be helping to support
and enhance the magic community.
Will we be giving away magic secrets? No way! Absolutely not! That's like telling a five-year-old there is no Santa Claus. So what's the objective of this site? As stated earlier it is to share some of the enchantment. It is to encourage. It is to stimulate any lover of magic to explore the art further. It is to let you know how to hire a magician. It is to let you know how to get a magical product. It is to keep the love alive.
We take the
magicians code of ethics very seriously, and we feel that there are many
esoteric magic secrets and discussions (and products) that should never
be seen by the general public. If you are a magician there will be a protected
section for you, (hats and rabbits) which will open very soon. TOP
Some magical friends have said we shouldn't tell people how to contact suppliers of magical products. Our answer is quite simple. Today, anyone can walk into a magical store anywhere in the world and buy a magic product or even a boxed set of magic at Christmas. Or for that matter they can even order on-line. There are so many low-quality, unscrupulous people out there offering poorly-made, deceptively advertised items, there is a danger people will be discouraged and ripped off. This would cause the magic community to gain a bad reputation. Our goal is to educate magic enthusiasts and recommend the best resources for magic-related products and services.
As a general rule those who do buy magic tricks, props, books, and videos are lovers of magic and they want to learn how to amaze and enchant their friends and family. No professional magician feels threatened by that. It's a bit like saying that if you attend amateur dramatics classes you are threatening the acting skills of a Hollywood Oscar winner.
Take the very word 'Magic'. It is a noun, a verb and an adjective! Magic entertains and inspires us all. It brings a smile where there was previously a tear. It has even been used as therapy to help heal the sick. It baffles, it amazes, it cheers, it astonishes and above all, it touches the child like wonder in all of us in a world that is forgetting how to experience the thrill of enchantment. Anyone who has seen the look on a child's face as it opens a birthday or Christmas present will understand. Magic is fun! Magic is enchantment! Enjoy!
