This is a solid routine George.

I love that the whole thing packs small and can be played silent when needed :)

I used to work at that Burger King ... for like ... two whole days! lol

Great routine, 12 minutes, packs flat, plays big, and no better pitch in the world to be doing it on - I love Ocean City!



I do a lot of filming on a tripod, very hard to capture the moment ... I aim for a 45 degree angle that can capture both me and part of the audience. I film close-ups of the magic in between shows and then cut&paste them together with Windows Movie Maker.

I don't get a lot of usable footage, I'm always walking out-of-frame, someone is standing in front of the camera, there is background noise, bla bla bla bla bla - but it is very useful to myself as I get to watch my shows from the other side and see things I can't see from the stage.

Hey guys the first half of the video (part one) is based on a lot of work from my teachers Eric Evans, and Jimmy Talksalot.. like I said .. Jimmy Talksalot taught me a lot of the cigarette stuff, While Eric taught me a lot of work with the stick, and the coin... Yeah the stick and coin routine has Eric written all over it, and everything there is available in his DVD Secret Art Of Coin Manipulation, and his lecture notes "Wand Work". ...

In the second part of the video I actually combined 2 effects and gave them a plot together.. It's a rope through neck, and a Card to mouth that wich is Sonny Hollidays.

thanks guys
