Hi guys,

I thought I'd share this little creation of mine here. It uses a very very simple gimmick, which I'm pretty sure almost everybody has anyway. Signed borrowed coins may be used if your really want. Works great as a visual transposition.

Please let me know what you think. Has it been done? Any suggestions for improvement?

Cheers,
Huruey

Cant say I approve of magicians posting videos on youtube as there are a lot of bad magicians out there who expose what they do either deliberatly or through bad technique but yours was as far as I could see... flawless. Well done.

Hey...

Nicely done, that looked good.

I can't say ive seen this exact way done before, it looks great.

Now not knowing the method means I can't be sure if this is possible, but the only thing I feel could be touched up is the fingers holding the coin... they look a bit rigid, like a block... kinda lol.

I loved it though... well done.

I wanted to clear a few things up due to the kind of feedback I have been receiving generally from around the place.

Apologies if this sounds like I am trying to market the effect, I merely want to give people a better idea of what this is.

Coins can be borrowed and signed. Almost any two coins will work. No sleeves, pockets, or any other clothing are required. No strings, pulls or magnets are used. The gimmick is incredibly simple, it does not even need to be constructed in any way, that's how simple it is.

Thanks for the feedback!

The video looks impressive! By this recent post you made, you've canceled out the explanations that I thought of. Great job!
imagine the possibilities... endless...

Thanks for the comments!

Jonathan, in theory, it should be possible to repeat this many times.

I have a request to anybody here who thinks they could help. One of the reasons I brought this video to this forum was to look for help. I know that the Magic Café holds such a great wealth of talent and experience, and seen as I have only been doing magic for almost a year, I was hoping to share this developing idea with people who know what they are talking about. I'd love to get some real feedback and advice.

Can anyone point me in the direction of any honest experienced magicians I can feel safe sharing the method with?

Thanks a lot guys!

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys! I have now shared this with Jonathan Townsend, along with a little vanish/production using the same basic concept. Thanks for the chat, John, I found it very helpful!

Thanks again,

Hi guys,

I received a rather distressing pm on youtube earlier today.

=============================================================

"Hey huruey, I saw your video of the "Oblivion Change" and I played with some methods and got this.

Hope you like it.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=mT0MMNG5Se4

Maybe it uses the same method because I got the same idea some month ago.

Tristan"

=============================================================

When I watched his video, I became rather upset, as it is almost certainly the exact same method, but he has given the effect his own name, "Coin Maynia" (you could find the video with a search), and has seemingly given credit soley to himself.

I don't know what to do. I have sent him a reply and hopefully things will be resolved, but it doesn't sound like he thinks he's doing anything wrong.

Yet another reason, ill never post anything on youtube. if you post post a video, you can make your own youtube so to speak by converting the files to .flv
and post on a 10 dollar a month web server. and even if your not html savvy programs can do all the work for you. its not free.... but sometimes you get what you pay for

I received a reply from Tristan, and everything should be fixed very soon.

Thanks guys. Smile

Next time I'll think twice before putting up a video of something of my own.

Cheers,
