Step one is to find something you have good reason to feel is deceptive. Such a brazen application of HPC and the Mora pass is VERY VERY difficult to integrate into your actions.

Remember, there is supposed to be a delay between when you "do the move" and when you can reveal the magic.

Well, well well. I love a challenge.

I have been working on two versions of a routine showcasing this slight. One version can be done surrounded with no worries about angles. This version uses known slights and the last vanish is the one handed retention of vision with a surprise ending showing both hands completely empty without a “hand washing” demonstration.

The other version is done with the spectator in front of you and no one behind you. This one uses some things that I have been working on for the last 20 years and (as far as I know, may be original). That means that someone else, sometime, somewhere may have done the same thing, but I have no knowledge of it and have developed these moves independently.

I developed the routines, then worked on the patter trying to include a little humor. I have been audience testing it for the last week. I even had the opportunity to show it to a child of 10. I have been getting exceptional responses.

I know my style is a little unorthodox with a lot of hand movement, but it has served me well for a lot of years. Anyone willing to put the time into learning these types of things will be greatly rewarded

I’m thinking of doing the same thing I did with the One Handed Retention of Vision and taping the two routines and emailing them to interested parties.

What do you think? Should I spend the time (I’m on dial up and each email takes about 4 minutes) and effort to show this?

Thanks

Yes to making the clips and getting feedback from folks who know. YOUSENDIT allows you to offer LINKS to the clips, so you only have to upload ONCE.

By the way, Ramsay's mid-air vanish is similar in that it requires attention management to work. So brazen does not mean bad. Just a greater challenge.

Thanks Jonathan. That will make it a lot easier to do this.

Vinny - I am honored that you suggest that with only seeing my one clip. I will PM you.

Thanks again and hopefully this won't take too long.

Your friend

Holy cow!! How did I miss this post? Craig, please do send me a copy of the video. I'm on dial-up too (Man!! Are we dinosaurs, or what?? Smile ), but the download time sounds more than worth the wait. Look at all of the talented folks behind you, encouraging you to continue with your work (I'd name names, but what's the point... simply review the last three pages of replies!!). I am excited for you, and looking forward to receiving your file.

Best regards,
Evan

Craig,

The good thing of putting up the clip is other parties can give you comments. Even thought some of them may not fit your style, it's good to see what others think.

Do count me in your mailing list, and if you have any updates, let me know.

And Jonathan is right, uploading it can save you time for repeatedly sending the clip again and again... the price is... it goes public and you have to be extemely careful with your moves =)

p.s. thanks for taking the time to send the clips to us via email.
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?

The yousendit utility is interesting in that although the item is posted ON the internet, you do do a specific link to get to it and search engines don't find things there. so... as long as folks are good about keeping their links to themselves or those they intend to sent links to, it is pretty much private.

Bill:

Thanks for your interest. I didn't want to tape this at work again, so I have found a friend who has a DVD recorder. I can videotape it on my camcorder and have him convert it to a file we can post on the internet. I expect this will take a couple of weeks.

In the meantime, if anyone wants on the list for the routines, please let me know.

Thanks

Craig

As a magician and ventriloquist I am always looking for one handed effects.

(One from the world of cards is "It can't be done any slower.)

Playing with coins and other props is great fun and sometimes brings birth to new ideas.

Please let me know where you post this.

You are all appreciated by,

Harris

Chris Kenner's "One-Handed Vanish" (from "Totally Out of Control") has a ROV aspect to it, if performed correctly.

Hi Cpontz !!
I'm currently working on magic with hands puppets...I mean only the hand, and, for example, a silver dollar.
Your moves look very interesting to me, and I would be happy to appear in your list...
Good luck in your search, you have all my support !

Could you give us a source for the Silent Mora vanish ?

Thanks
