A Man Named Magick

13min | 2011
Meet Magick Balay, a man who works for a New York City magic shop by day, while performing his own brand of legerdemain at night. This documentary follows Magick as he plies his trade through the streets of Manhattan, leaving his spectators shocked.  Along the way, Magick describes his philosophy on life, the theories behind his magical techniques, and the satisfaction of bringing amazement into the everyday lives of ordinary people.

Why would a man dedicate his life to magic and mystery?  How did he get started?  Why does he go by the name Magick?

A MAN NAMED MAGICK is a close-up portrait of a charismatic guy whose greatest magical feat might just be how he has transformed himself through his art.
