If you ask about Morretti´s Version: It is not published!

If you ask about that:

It´s on a DVD of Russ Stevens.

Hmm - what do you think about that:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0KrWJPrdIQ

Is it a kind of rip-off/copy of Morrettis version and routine?
Cause in my eyes there are (too) many similarities.
It´s made easier (no chaining first, a bigger box, not the participance of voluteers, no appearance of the animals and the quick-change to a clown at the end).
A changed theme (white flag instead of the flowers) - and a reduced/simplified version.

What are you thinking about it? Is it okay in your eyes?

It's the victory carton! The manuscript was put out well before Morretti did his... Same concept!

It's public domain peeps!

Ah okay - didn´t know that. That´s why I asked... I thought it´s an original Morretti idea.
Thanks for the update! I appreciated it - like all help and ideas here.

I really like that version - has similarities to the Moretti version.

As for it being a version of the Victory Carton Sword Box, it simply isn't. The swords go in at different angles in the VC version, not straight through like in this version.

It's the concept. Same thing.... Morretti took the VC booklet and put his routine together. Both concepts that he used are in the booklet... The speed is what impressed me.

I concur. While artfully done it does look as though they are doing some time compression during the insertions. It certainly gives more energy to the performance, but I don't think they are really performing at that speed live.

The tell-tale clue for me is at the end when they pull back the shot. One gentleman is briefly seen at the edge of the frame applauding like Richard Simmons on speed. When the angle changes the applause seems to be more moderate rate. Subsquent viewings show other signs that appeared to my eye to be frame rate changes.

It is food for thought, though. I wonder if there is a way to make it feel like that without adding to the danger.
