Iv always liked that effect alot. I think you did a nice job, those changes are not the most easy. I do however think the "proving" double lifts can be reduced or eliminated. if not, I would use one that is much more natural then the one your using or learn to handle a double more freely

Very good Michaelmystic2003.

It's nice to see someone so young working on this kind of stuff.

Reminds me of myself when I was your age.

Keep up the good work,

Steve

Hey Mike,

You remind me of Steve when he was young (whatever that means).

Couple of things.
1) You aren't the kind of guy who can say something along the lines of "heres something you don't know" without sounding like a dick. If you must use such a line, throw in a joke there to defuse the dickness (feel free to rephrase that more eloquently). And, if you are going to point out something we don't know, and you recognize that, don't ask if we know (you know we don't!).

2) I'm not sure I'm in love with the presentation. First, theres no hook. Who cares that the cards get warmer/colder with a wave of your hand (which also suggests your hand touching the card, which I don't like). Second, theres no reason for the card to have to change back in the end! Why do you have to sacrifice the card? Message me- I have a nifty idea.

3) DON'T GET A BREAK UNDER THE DOUBLE JUST BEFORE THE SPREAD AT THE END! It tips off that something is hidden up-top. Just spread, leaving the first few cards as a block.

If you're reading this you're my favourite magician.

Very good man.
Can you also upload a video of the one handed pop out move as we asked?

Thanks!

Thanks Ben, sound advice and I will work on that. Sorry about the opening line... I agree. that part of the patter was admittedly off-the-cuff.
