Alright, before I begin, I must admit that I am into the whole "post magic videos on YouTube"-fad because I love being able to show videos of my performances to my friends who don't usually see me perform.

I had posted 2 videos of me performing the Herman Pass(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKtjOHJF9Sc) and the window change(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuel9QmzO_I). Can someone tell me if my performance of these 2 sleights exposed anything?

How can I tell?

Thanks!

Nothing was exposed, if that is your question. You've posted two sleights which, if nothing else, let laymen know that card magic is in fact just done with skill and dexterity. Of course this is not the case but it is what videos that just show a sleight or move imply. I do not understand the point of posting a sleight instead of a routine that uses that sleight. If you're going to post magic on something like You Tube, then at least make it entertaining. Could be just my opinion though.

Thanks for the reply.

It may be your opinion but I believe that's a really wonderful piece of opinion that I will keep in mind when recording any future videos.

You're right. There is no point in posting videos of sleights. I guess I did them just for the heck of it. *giggles*

I agree with BrianMillerMagic's comments and would add that the point is not to impress with dexterity but to entertain. There are several venues to have others revue your sleight videos that might better suit your needs and avoid exposure.
