Hey everyone,


I need some serious criticisms and advices to improve myself. I am not trying to say like to become extremely good in just a second (and it is totally unreasonable)but tips for improvement b/c I feel like I have missed a lot of main points.

Thanks !!!

I use yellow Dr. Leons too~! I think you have an epic cover pass, but your pass itself is to slow... unless that's how you wanted it.

Any reason why doing a fast pass??
b/c for myself, I cannot do a fast pass without being flashy. While I know that it is necessary to do a pass with misdirection, I think that doing a slow pass that is not flashy is better. (too many fast but flashy pass on internet, I don't want to be like that).

Is my way of thinking of a pass correct??

Maybe because I am an Akira Fuji fanboi ahaha, he does the Braue popup move with a pass... I almost died. Chad Nelson also has a good riffle pass

That would work perfect with misdirection but its just faster if you want it to be burnable. Your coverpass is straight up burnable. I am trying to get mine fast and yeah my looks kinda flashy... but I think you should play with making it fast while on the bus and stuff and use the slower one in performance.

Its that ending to an ambitious card that people almost always do when they first learn ambitious card. Where you bend the card place it in the middle and it pops to the top even when bent.

Akira Fuji is just amazing~ I keep watching his pass on youtube everyday.

Arthur,

I honestly believe you are good enough to perform that in front of a lay audience and knock them over good. Always remember with a video ALL focus is on your hands while in performance all magicians know that rightly timed "misdirection" is an important part of the Pass. This helps to cover the chance (albeit a slim one) that someone would catch a quick look at the movement. But it looks good.


Good magic to all,

Ey,
just looking at your cover pass, I know for a fact you will blow 99.9% of every layaudience away with that.
Watch the index finger with the other shifts and you will be well on ur way to master the pass.

Great job, I loved it!

I think you are at the point where you should think about and put an equal (or more) amount of time and work into how you get in and get out of the move.

I agree with you on not wanting the pass to be "flashy" it is not supposed to be anything. The idea of watching a pass contains a bit or irony.

As to my meaning: The pass is a part of a the whole-specifically the idea is to control a card or cards-and when properly framed it can be totally deceptive, so the questions are: How do you get the cards and hands into the proper position in a way that looks natural. What do you do with hands and indeed your whole body after the move?
