Here is a very smooth performance of Cylinder and Coins:

This Japanese magician shows excellent technique (IMHO) not just with coins, but he also does mini Linking Rings, 3 Fly, Cups and Balls, etc., on YouTube.

He goes by the name "Broccoli". If you search for his YouTube name, "kienboss," you'll find several excellent close-up magic videos. This guy is one to watch!

I like the wand addition to the routine...(and the music)...

Him and I are pretty good friends. He is actually here on the Café, and yes, he's awesome and knows his stuff.

Nice routine, seems a slight variation on the John Carney routine. The only problem is, is doing the same vanish four times in a row. This is why Carney does it twice, and then two different ways after that. It was well done, though.

If you like the looks of his technique, be sure to check out his version of mini linking rings. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAfiuGotE_8

I think it flows nicely, and I really like the slow, deliberate hand movements. Nothing to be suspicious about. Well done.

Well, obviously it is better than most, but I really don't like the "slow" vanish. I think it misses the burn of a retention vanish, and it is much too "focused" when a vanish of that type should be more of "Well, let me empty my other hand because it has something to do," and less of "Here, watch me place this coin ever so slowly for no reason into this other hand."

Also, showing the cork halfway through really killed it for me, as the idea should be that the coins are going one at a time under the cork....by showing the cork there, it kinda kills that notion.

Overall, very good, but the small things nag at me too much watching the video. A couple small tweaks, and it could be flawless.

I agree with Daegs on all points. And, with the slow vanish thing, stopping to do a couple of gestures turns it into something of a guessing game, guess which hand the coin is in, and diminishes the magic. And aiming the vanishes at the cylinder sort of gives it away, since that is supposed to be a surprise. But the guy is really good, no question about that.
