As previously reported by Brendon Peel in our article on 1 March 2018 [Lights, Camera, Magic!], 4 South African magicians were requested by Worx Group to work together with 9MM Films to produce a very special video for one of South Africa’s largest banks, Standard Bank.
The brief was to display 120 different winners’ names for the Standard Bank internal ‘Mark of Excellence‘ awards, with each name to be ‘magically produced’ on screen. Over 25 unique effects were conceptualised by Marcel Oudejans and Brendon Peel and performed by the cast of 4 magicians and 1 actor. The task of creating and performing such a high volume of different tricks and illusions was no easy feat; however, the cast, crew and filmmakers all managed to pull it off in style.
There is growing demand for magicians to perform on camera and to meet this demand Magic Africa Productions now offers a database of talent for the casting of magicians in films, television commercials and advertisements.
This project is potentially the start of many more of the like. Shown in this post is the introduction segment featuring the performers. Casting directors can request to view the rest of the videos by contacting Magic Africa Productions.
