Our video answers the  question: "Can science be used to improve magic" A public magic  performance opens the video, and then after the performance, the magician  ponders why the trick worked. He then approaches an expert knowledgeable in  magic with this question, and, from then on, the video revolves around this  expert and his peers explaining misdirection and how science can assist in  improving magic. This narration and lesson will excite and interest the  audience through the humorous yet informative examples being acted out as the  experts narrate. The final consensus is that magic can be improved by  science.
