The Magic Torch

By pointing the "Magic" Torch at the screen, we see how hundreds of small stars, planets, asteroids and unusual shapes follow its beam of light. The viewers are able to see how, as they control the flashlight, these elements are driven by the movements of their hands, enjoying it as a peculiar remote control. The pleasure of playing with this light that hides something magical brings a fantasy world alive.
