Magic Adventures

Jump Start | Creative Engine Grant Recipient 2021

Magic Adventures by Dazzling Dan is an innovative, interactive video project akin to ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’.

It enables the viewer to interact with the narrative/video-feed responding to questions asked directly by the actor on screen, interact with props in the video, and engage and take part in the direction of a dramatic narrative

Not just a passive video, Magic Adventures is an immersive, interactive experience. The interface fuses pre-recorded video, interactive video software and alternative scripted endings. The audience is engaged and taken on a virtual magic trip around Geelong. The project was inspired in isolation, when Dan was thinking about how to deliver magic escapism via video, yet still make the audience feel like they were getting out and exploring the community, which is where Dazzling Dan loves performing most.
