The similarities between the two lie in their visual impact. The difference is in the distinctive impressions they create and the peculiar emotions they trigger.
Lite Flite is magic. And so is D’Lite, although I’ve seen dancers, who are non-magicians, use D’Lites in their dance numbers and render these magical lights special effects.
Throw streamers are special effects. And so is Snow Storm in China if done for just the heck of it.
However, with a good storyline accompanying it, and with excellent build up and presentation, Snow Storm in China can tug on one’s emotion. The pieces of paper then that burst into the air under vigorous fanning will create the illusion of snow, which audience members who suspend their disbelief will readily accept, if only momentarily.
Why am I telling you all this?
Unless the confetti launch and the throw-streamer pitch is wrapped in a story, with a beginning, middle and end, and is mysterious, amazing and emotionally touching, the method covert, then you are merely performing special effects and don’t deserve an ovation.
