Ok guys.

Not sure if this is a good idea or not but I have a little youtube video here of me running through the effect without any presentation. I promise this is as it would look. I really am doing the work and I deliberately didn't take the easiest route.

I await the inevitable critiques.

Regards,

John.

Your video is still 'private' at the moment, John Smile

Wow now that looks like an incredibly deceptive and clean handling, the way the contents are revealed looks great.

What would you consider the cons of utilising this method for close-up?
Is it only some angle worries or is there more to it that makes this not ideal for that kind of situation?

Cheers.

Hi Jaybest.

I created this for stage cabaret really. It could be used in a close up situation but you do have a few angle issues (just at the end really if you slightly re-jig the envelope handling)
Having said that it is at its best playing to a larger crowd. For close up situations you may be find other solutions that work better for you.

Hope that makes sense.

BN in general is not a close-up effect. Each method will likely have its own unique handling nuances to work out if one wished to convert it to a close-up effect. Blank Night is no different in that respect.

... on reflection mate, that presentation is slightly better. Worth considering?

I now Know why Bobser doesn't like it. He doesn't have enough money to put into the envelopes to make it look good.

What about making some of the envelopes up for me? But not telling anyone else.
Or what about that T-shirt you were wearing John? Why can't I have that? I'm still not happy!
Even if you send me the made up envelope I'm still gonna wear a TT when I perform this out of spite. Nothing against you John. You're ok. It's the other ones who over hyped this, not you. You probably use a TT and that's why you're selling it off. I don't mean that in a bad way.
I'm serious about that T-shirt by the way.

I like it, I like him, I want him in ways a man shouldn't but as ever he turns me down for Nyman 'again'..
Good work John, nicely illustrated (I enjoy that) but above all else workable and very useful for other effects totally unrelated to bank night..

Peace MS
It's not goodbye, just see you later...

Hey guys,

Bryn brought to my attention how my post sounded. I told him via PM, and all of you now, that I didn't mean it to detract from his work at all. I really have nothing bad to say about his work, I am quite fond of it.

With that being said, let me try to be a bit clearer:

If you are simply looking for ONLY a Bank Night type approach, I'd personally recommend the Bob Cassidy work as opposed to The Safwan Papers. It's very, very, very, very similar (in my opinion, of course). The strength of The Safwan Papers, for me, is in the other effects. I'm sure this will read differently to others than I meant it so I will say it again:

I think The Safwan Papers are excellent. I just don't think the Bank Night version contained in it is where its strength lies.

Hmmm, reading that it still sounds like I'm down on Bryn or his release but I'm not. It's really, really good.

I got it: just ignore everything I said in this thread.

That's a good rule of thumb anyway.

Lem

Hey, no wories, and I certainly appreciate the kind words regearding the book. THanks!
Bryn

Good luck with the release!
