His technique is realy great.
He didn't drop coin at all while he took part in European Coin Magic Symposium.
I knew his performance is always perfect.

Hi,

Here's the presentation text and content :

Moneypulation Vol.1 by Lawrens Godon - DVD
Visual Coin Techniques for the Advanced Magician

14 no-gaff, stand-up routines and techniques !

In this volume Lawrens Godon reveals a revolutionary system of coin manipulation based on a single sleight, often neglected and rarely used.
With this knowledge at hand you will have a whole set of INCREDIBLY visual utility sleights and ideas at your disposal.

No-talk teaching and slow-motion sequences make everything easy to learn.

Original, deceptive and elegant, designed to be performed for larger groups as well as under most close-up situations, these coin effects are right up the alley of those who enjoy working at chest level.

Moneypulation is not a dvd for beginners, but any magicians familiar with intermediate level coin techniques will be able to learn the material taught.


Content :
The Dynamic Back Thumb Palm
The Trapdoor
A V A (Appear-Vanish-Appear)
Spellboundary
Three Fly
Silk Contact
Fly Again (performance only)
Cointumacious

Bonus
On/Off
Fake Drop
Wanded
Continuous Production
Crystal (glass ball routine)


"The Coin Magic of Lawrens Godon is incredible !
I was completely fooled.
I had long awaited the release of his DVD on the Dynamic Back Thumb Palm..."
Ponta The Smith

"I spent some time with Lawrens during the European Coinmagic Symposium in Milano and had an opportunity to see some of the most difficult coin magic look absolutely effortless.
Anyone who can muscle pass a coin directly into Harada Hold EVERYTIME is someone I need to watch...closely.
I recommend Lawrens Godon's work to anyone."
Eric Jones

Please feel free to ask if you have any question about the Dynamic Back Thumb Palm !
^^

Thanks !

Hey Lawrens! I remember seeing your work on youtube quite some time ago, and always really enjoyed your style! Would love to pick up your work but don't have a single penny right now (literally, long story), will let you know what I think once I pick it up. I got the feeling I'm in for a pleasant surprise!

The fact that I could bring a few pebbles in the aisle with the origin of moves shouldn't be sufficient to prevent me of stating that Lawrens is an awesome magician and contact juggler. His two C&Bs routine, amongst other things is a masterpiece. He has taken the Back Thumb Palm to a new dimension and brought it into our world. I like giving him credit publicly as I did privately. This DVD marks a new milestone in coin technique, a well explored field.

... plus, under his held back look, he is a very nice character with a superb and sophisticated sense of humor.

Hi all,

Here's a french review on the great magic site "virtual magie" :

‎"(...) Filmed on white background, the spectator (you) is at the center of the action and can fully benefit from the demonstrations and explanations.
(...) You are one of those who love spending hours at working and refining a coin technique and then apply it to your own routines ?
Then this DVD is for you."

Lawrens ponta recommended your DVD t, I just got it in the mail. I was so excited for it to come. He said he couldn't do it because it's too difficult for him. But my back thumb palm is better than his he says, so I could master it soon he said. I hope to soar to new heights with this DVD, like I felt I did with ponta's work. Lawrens you're an inspiration to me!

Here's a routine from the DVD : Silk Contact.

This is the only routine that doesn't use the Dynamic Back Thumb Palm (DBTP).
It's a highly visual (aural ?) vanish of 3 coins, and their one-by-one reapparance with the aid of a silk...

I sincerely hope you like it :

Lawrens:

I finally watched your DVD tonight. I have always been a fan of the back thumb palm and I utilize it as part of my arsenal of magic techniques. I must say that I have not used your specific technique (Dynamic Thumb Palm) before. And after applying your techniques, I like them very much. It seems to go right into back thumb palm in such a way that it minimizes any extra adjustments from the thumb.

Very nice work!

Dan

Hi friends,

A litle update about my [url=http://www.lawrensgodon.com/?lang=en]Moneypulation DVD [/url]: Silk Contact is published in the february 2012 issue of the LINKING RING magazine !

"Joe Turner's column "Ways and Means" features "Silk Contact" by Lawrens Godon. It's a neat effect to make three silver coins disappear and reappear which you'll like."

[/quote] lawrens, your magic and skill is incredable. At imx last year I showed eric jones my performance of a.v.a and he mentioned your skill of the hard move in a.v.a. I have mastered it now.i look forward much to moneypulation 2
Message: Posted by: cperkins (Feb 12, 2012 02:37PM)
Moneypulation is a burst of magic creativity with coins; new techniques that I had never seen before and that's always exciting. In this regard it reminds me when I first saw Giacomo Bertini's work (totally new techniques for me). This is highly original stuff which will be a challenge for most, but still lots of good stuff to take away here and there for most coin magicians.

Lawrens is another master coin worker and I appreciate the way he attributes the work of others before him and cites his sources (this is itself another learning experience).

Top notch stuff from a real pro.

Thanks Lawrens!

I'm interested in the content and teaching on this DVD - The comments I've read so far tend to suggest that the techniques taught are for a more advanced coin magician - is this correct? - I've watched 'silk' several times and it looks beautiful. I used the 'b' word, I know, but I cant think of anything better to describe it!!
Message: Posted by: borderjs (Feb 24, 2012 12:00PM)
Trailer looks interesting! The music was a tad much for me, didn't seem to fit the presentation. I'm sure the content will be great!
Message: Posted by: Lawrens Godon (Feb 26, 2012 04:26AM)
@Shakey : You're correct, you may have reach the intermediate to advanced stage in your coin magic to fully enjoy practicing what I explain in Moneypulation vol.1...But I believe you can enjoy it watching how one contructs a visual toutine, as well as how to combine techniques to achieve clean and direct magic.

@borderjs : Most of the routines are fitted with sound illustration, something I enjoyed experimenting with...but I promise, the music in Moneypulation Vol.2 will be more soft, even more romantic ^^

Thank you for your interest,

Lawrens

Thanks to Bill Wells, Vanni Pulé and Sammy Smith, Moneypulation Vol.1 gets a great review in the Volume 92, number 6 - June 2012 issue of the Linking Ring magazine !

"In the great wash of regurgitated methods and variations on existing themes that seem to flood the magic market, there is an all too seldom, but sometimes bright flash of brilliance that revives, motivates, and inspires us to move our art forward (...)"

Dear my friend Lawrens Godon,

How do you get into the DBTP (Back thumb palm) without any movement? I can do it very smoothly, and very fast, as demonstrated in my video which you've seen on youtube, A.V.A I will post a link of it for you and other magicians who forgot it. And never seen it...it took years. Muscle pass to harada hold..I can do it well now.

Thank you. I just can't do it without any movement. In your latest video on the interview in french, there is absolultely no movement. How do you do it? Is it just practice my friend? You have improved since Moneypulation 1 was released, it is much more fast and no movement AT ALL. Very impressive. beautiful routine. one of the best I've seen, just as good as Ponta the Smith's routines. Beautiful, absolutely incredible. I hope to see Moneypulation Vol.2 come out soon, please let me know when its close to completation! I will buy it directly from you for your own benefit, and even give you extra, for your help with everything you've given me. I really appreciate it. Thank you, kevin.
