The concept behind “Magic Academy” is to provide children with a unique blend of magic tricks and educational content, igniting their curiosity, promoting reading, and stimulating an interest in science. Magic tricks are not just feats of illusion but are deeply rooted in the scientific principles of physics and light. Producer Sergey Ivannikov explains, “All tricks have a history behind them, and even this small detail brings kids to teamwork, reading books and practicing.” It’s about more than just sleight of hand; it’s about nurturing a love for learning.

What sets “Magic Academy” apart is its ability to seamlessly bridge the gap between entertainment and education. During late-night brainstorming sessions, the show’s creative process was meticulously crafted by showrunner and film director Victor Migalchan and Will Roberts, resulting in a format that teaches kids magic tricks with a twist. Each trick incorporates elements of physics, light manipulation, and discipline, creating a holistic learning experience.

Director Victor Migalchan took his role in shaping the visual and narrative aspects of “Magic Academy.” Filming magic tricks for the first time posed a unique challenge, as magic relies on keeping secrets. However, under professional guidance, the young contestants learned their tricks and presented them in front of the judges.

The collaboration among producers Sergey Ivannikov, Will Roberts, and Victor Migalchan is harmonious, driven by shared values and a commitment to excellence. “Magic Academy” educates and encourages kids to practice their tricks with family members, promoting interpersonal relationships and bridging generational gaps.

The show addresses the pressing issue of screen time’s impact on children by encouraging real-world interactions. Victor Migalchan emphasizes, “Our values revolve around spending time with humans and family, learning something new, presenting it to your family, and together with family members presenting it to the judges.” “Magic Academy” is a refreshing departure from the digital age’s isolation and disconnection.

Throughout the pilot episode, the young contestants, Ian Chen, Michael Vuong, and Josslyn Banh, faced challenges designed by Will Roberts. These challenges tested their skills, determination, and teamwork. The trio’s mutual support, hard work, discipline, and the sheer joy they experienced while mastering magic tricks made for memorable moments on set

As for the future of “Magic Academy,” the vision of the creators is clear: “Our plans are to develop into a season and then keep going.” The show’s goal is to reach a wider audience, expanding its educational impact while preserving and promoting family values.

“Magic Academy” isn’t just a television series; it’s a movement that encourages families to bond, children to learn, and everyone to believe in the magic of education. By blending the wonders of magic with the power of knowledge, this show aims to inspire a new generation of lifelong learners and create lasting memories for families across the nation.
