Guess there has to be a first time for everyone to stick their neck out there. What the title says, on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0L-is8fWFM. Would be nice to get some constructive criticism on my very first magic routine.

About the video, the first thing I noticed was that you made the coins talk when you put them in the pocket the last time.

here's the proper link

Thanx, didn't know about the link stuff Smile
About the talking coins, yeah I find it hard to keep them totally quiet. The few times I've showed this noone has noticed it though. Got any good advice to keep them quiet?

Jocce, I always keep a bunched up handkerchief or bandana in my right coat pocket for that last vanish. As I place my hand in the pocket, the coin at the fingertips goes into the front corner as I press my palm into the bandana and release.

You are right that there are many conditions when your audience won't notice anyway (in a crowded bar or restaurant, for example). But it helps to be prepared!

(By the way, your avatar looks remarkably familiar to me...)

A bandana or hankie is a good idea. I'll try that. I usually (as if I've done it so many times, duh!) do the last pass with spec holding my fist which I offer to them at the moment I release the coins, off beat so to speak.

About the avatar, I haven't used it before (snapped it yesterday evening). The good looking guy is my son, the baldish one is me... Smile

Jocce,
Nice job.

How about posting an updated version after you silence the final effect.

Yep, I'll work on silencing these buggers. Until then I removed the video.

Big thanx to those who replied Smile

PS. Keeping them quiet is the hardest technical part of the routine I think DS.

The reason I commented on your avatar is... you could be my twin!

Have you seen The Prestige yet? Want to do a stage show together some time? (I promise, I am not as "obsessive" as either Danton or Bordin...)

Lol, it could create some nice vanishes and unexpected reappearances.
