Ed ecco le risposte:
The freedom of information act doesn’t cover magic
A lot of magic tricks are property of the magician that invented it and they’ll never reveal their secret. Explanations that you do find online are either from a magician that broke ranks or how somebody thinks it’s done.
Magicians never reveal thier secrets unlike the CIA
There was a series of specials that ran on FOX in the 90’s “Magicians Secrets Revealed” A masked magician revealed how a lot of illusions and magic card tricks are done. In the last video he revealed himself. Pretty sure he’s been blacklisted from performing.
As everyone has said, magic tricks are kept secret by the magicians, and are covered by IP laws and NDAs. They are worth money, not so much in the tricks themselves (which can be valuable), but in the sense that they help build the performer’s “brand” and persona. People like the mystique and the showmanship. If all your secrets are revealed, you’re limited in the degree to which you can sell yourself as a performer of the magician type.
There really isn’t an impetus to “reveal” magic tricks. Experienced producers of many types can make up similar tricks. The people who act/produce these things for the magician have probably seen similar things a million times and have little motivation to risk their careers by leaking these things. The real “magic” is the show itself, not the trick.
