My career as a magician has opened doors to many wonderful moments. Being here in Busan, South Korea has afforded me the privilege to participate in the 2018 FISM World Championships. My role here has been to act as one of the principle judges on a panel of distinguished members in the magical fraternity.
My job is done, my input, insights and deliberation has contributed to a successful campaign.
The world of magic is a big global family. Every Convention is a party. FISM the jewel in the crown.
This event was fantastic and for me a great privilege to preside over the Close-up competition.
Me and my team of judges worked hard over the entire week – we saw a lot of magic and came to the right conclusion about the top three winners.
Just like in the Olympics, there was a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize.
The Winner in the Category for Close Up Card Magic was Bill Cheung. His act was the closest thing to CGI and I saw it with my own eyes, truly marvellous.
