I've been working on developing a one handed retention of vision vanish for a silver dollar. I have worked it out and it looks pretty good.

The coin is in the hand, the hand closes, the opposite hand doesn't come with 10 inches of the hand with the coin, the spectator sees the hand closing over the coin, yet the coin disapprears to be found "somewhere else" with the opposite hand. No duplicate coins, no gimmichs, no sleeving.

I don't have a video of it yet, but wondered if anyone would want to see this. If so, I'm going to need some technical guidance on how to post it. I'm having it recorded on a digital video camera tomorrow.

I'd love to see it. If there are no dupe coins then the hands have to come close afterwards or at some point. But it sounds very interesting!

I'd love to see that too.

I'm not familiar with posting a video, but I know first you need to transfer the video file from your DV to your computer. Then you'll have to render it into a format which has a smaller file size, like .mpg, .wmv... etc. After that you need an internet space to place your file so others can get access to via browsers.

Or you can simply email the video to those who asks you. And I'll be the first one. Smile

Good luck.
It only takes a minute to learn how it is done, but takes a lifetime to learn how to do it.

You've got a coin?

Also eager to see what's up here. Ordinarily a retention of vision happens when you seen the fingers close over something that is being removed at that instant.

On the other hand, I have seem some folks use Silent Mora's vanish effectively. One person showed me a palm up handling with a wand in hand where they got a retention of vision of the ball (they used a small ball) in their hand as their fingers closed... both hands moved to their left and the Mora pass was done horizontally. Looked impressive.

I'm curious about how a 1 hand ROV can happen too.

Thanks for all the feedback. In response to everyone’s questions:

Rutabaga: It is a new slight. I know a lot about coin magic, and I’ve never heard of anything like this. I developed it on my own. We taped it at lunch today on a digital video recorder. My friend Jay is converting the file to something I can email. If you PM me your email address, I’ll send you a copy of the video clip. I hope to be able to send it this weekend.

walking_liberty: If you PM me your email, I’ll send you a clip also. The hands don’t come within 10” of each other when it is done correctly.

info2victor: Thanks for the information. I’m going to email it to interested parties. If you PM me your email, I’ll send you a clip also.

Sirakorv: Thanks for the offer of hosting the clip, but as you can see I’ve decided to email it to interested parties. If you PM me your email, I’ll send you a clip also.

Vinny: I think you get a GREAT burn with this. I’ve PM'ed you. Thanks for your version – It was really well done.

Jonathan: Ordinarily a retention of vision happens when you seen the fingers close over something that is being removed at that instant. This is exactly what you will see when you see my clip. I PM’ed you.

Jaz: I PM'ed you also.

Thanks
Craig

I would like to see it also. The only one-handed retention vanish I have seen/know is Geoff Lata's.

Wow, sounds VERY interesting. Craig, I wouldn't mind seeing this too, if possible.

thanks.

It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one."

I won't forget you Robert.

I would be very pleased to see this also-it would seem to be a contradiction in terms ? One handed ????
catch you later

Clarioneer: You got me there. The spectator only sees one hand being used, thus the "one handed ROV vanish". How would you phrase it?

Thanks

Are you asking about his one handed vanish that is used at the end of Kenner's "Three Fly" routine, his "French Pop"?
