Hi garrett,

YES...thats the one everybody is talking about...but this video doesn't come up to the vanish he showed us in person...this video was posted last year, the vanish he showed us was his new version...but to be honest even the old version looks wonderful...i have to recur myself but in the new version even when there is no burn you see the coin is in his hand...

Then I'd REALLY like to see his new one, as I thought the old one looked pretty darn good!

It always confounds me when people start talking about who has the best type of a "move". It's similar to someone talking about which carpenter has the best looking wood chisel. While we can admire someone's proficiency with a tool, it's not the tool that matters, but what you do with it that does.

I much rather watch someone with a good retention pass use it for an amazing routine instead of a guy that does an excellent retention pass just "do a retention pass".

So what was the most amazing coin routine at the seminar? Smile

Garrett, that was sweet, thanks for posting that. And max, it is very nice as you say, and I would like to see both versions in person someday. Smile Just might do that as I might be in Europe next year this time on company business and I'll be looking forward to trying to get to this event. Anyway, I enjoyed the video and like I said, it looks like you guys had a great time...Again, that's what it's all about. Smile

Again very nice, thanks for posting Bambu. Smile

Hey I notice some differences in the European workers as to style in coin magic, saw it in Bertini's work, Werner G. Sietz, Lawrens and some fine others out there. I kinda see it again with this guy Tony Wonder. Real nice stuff. What do you guys think, is there a difference or is it much ado about nothing/it's all the same stuff? I don't know, I love the flair of the Euro workers, it has a real nice flow to it. Smile

Dan, to answer your question--MIguel Angel Gia's Coins in Glass and Coins in Box were standouts for me. Add to that, Eric's new and improved Flash Coins and Audible, and Jean-Emmanuel's Cylinder and Coins. Ginjiro's C&C had some really clever and natural changeovers built in. Alex Conradi performed David Roth's new coin vanish routine wihout a bag (and really pleased David) and Akira Fuji's one coin routine was extremely well constructed. The first place routine of Hide Kimoto was also well constructed.

I don't know how many of these routines will show up on the DVD that will come out of this symposium, but I know that enough of them will. I contributed two routines to the DVD. One was my version of "Hellbound Spellbound", and another routine involving coins becoming liquid silver that David Roth felt was "lovely". (That's endorsement enough for me) And modesty prevents me from saying anything about the quality of those routines.

For the symposium, and at the lecture I just gave in Chicago, I performed many more routines than I could possibly explain in the time allowed. That allowed me to perform my Six Cylinder, Boxjumper (a new okito box routine), Coins (not) across, and several other new routines. It would take too much space here to describe them all, but I expect you'll hear more about them.

This dvd set sounds ridiculous. Does anyone have a ballpark idea when they'll be released?

Yes mav, sounds like a great bunch of routines can't wait to see that DVD. Smile Hey maybe with all that expertise and stuff in the hopper perhaps one lump of coal might find its way to this Café forum as a holiday gift to the many admirers here of such fine coin work from here and abroad. Wouldn't that be nice? Smile

What does that mean? Isn't getting coal a bad thing?

On the coal front, for anyone interested (I'm assuming Mb was relating to the 3rd option, which is certainly how it was explained to me as a child, but then I'm English): http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Where_did_the_......on_start

This event looks like a wonderful opportunity for those that can make it - I'll definitely try to get there in future if possible.

Thanks Pete, you got it. Smile Didn't mean to deliver any particular complexities on this, really didn't think I did as my larger meaning as to the post seems clear enough, at least I thought it was. But thanks just the same for the clearer more literary reference on it, hope it helps here. 'Tis the season. Smile

Yes, it is going to be very interesting to see what "the New York guys" pull out once more.

What happened in Europe shows that the PROCESS created by Michael Rubinstein, David Roth, Geoff Latta and Mike Gallo has a momentum that did something tremendous for coin magic that exceeds largely the real technical progress of coin craftsmen all over the world.

Thus a big thank you to the New York guys: we are looking forward to what you are going to pull out this time to amaze us once again. Any magician with common sense should get to Philadelphia if he only has even a slim chance to join this year. Who wants to fall behind?

Let's get to Mark de Souza's place even at the cost of a marital debate or an additional gig

I would like to echo the words of Jean Emmanuel and Niko. It was a fantastic 2 days and the quality of the magic that was on show was truly amazing. Even though Coin Magic is my favourite type of magic I would not have believed that it could have been so good and that the days could have passed so quickly.

I've made new friends and have many pages of notes to inspire me to produce better magic.

So thanks to the CLAM team that produced this event, and I hope that it will happen again.

Regards,

John


I understand from David Roth that your Geoff Latta routine gained a lot from your conversations with Alex Conradi and some move of his. This is the smart way to take advantage of such convention: meet with the best and let them help you improve on your own routines. Takes notes and bring them home.

Will you be able to make it to Mark de Souza's place with the New York guys? I'd love to see your take on this routine that Alex talked to me about

Heard from David Roth, and Curtis Kam. Sounds like Giacomo Bertini really pulled off a GREAT symposium! It is not an easy task to put on something like this(and believe me, I know!), but with the help of Jean Emmanuel Franzis, and Alex Conradi, Giacomo put together an all star lineup from all over the world, and the DVD that will be coming out will be fantastic. Our own seminar DVD's will be out in a few months as well, so coin guys will have a lot of goodies this coming year! I talked to Giacomo today, and he is already thinking about next year! We are as well, so stay tuned for much more great coin magic in 2011!!
First edition and reprint of Rubinstein Coin Magic sold out in RECORD TIME! The good news, though, is that I have reprinted the book once again (they are selling like hotcakes!), so there are enough for everyone!! As such, and for the last time, I again have a limited supply of books that I can sign. All come with a special FREE GIFT until supplies are gone, so first come, first serve! To order, be sure to send me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com . The books are here and ready to ship!
RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC- The biggest book on coin magic since Bobo's Modern Coin Magic, and the most important since David Roth's Expert Coin Magic! Hardbound, 500 pages, 20 chapters of state of the art coin magic illustrated with 930 crisp photos! A contribution chapter from over 20 of the world's top coin magicians! This will be the book against which all future books on coin magic will be measured! Already called a Modern Classic!!
And if anyone (USA ONLY) needs some of the coin stuff used in the book, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com as I have some limited supplies of coins and props used on the book.

Ciao everyone!!
Thanks very much for your words!
I had a very hard time, in preparing the Coinmagicsymposium, so I'm extremely happy that everything was good, and that you are appreciated!
My aim is to promote coinmagic in Europe, and I am very happy that this has been successful!
Now I begin to prepare for the editing of the DVD and I will keep you informed about! It will be a fantastic DVD, with the participation of all guests, and the winners of coincompetition:
Akira Fujii, David Roth, Curtis Kam, Shigeo Futagawa, Miguel Angel Gea, Jean Emmanuel Franzis, Ginjiro Kenji Tanida, Eric Jones, Alex Conradi, Eric Roumestan, Joke, Lawrens Godon, Bébel(with a fantastic card effect), Toni Cachadina, Mario Raso. The winners of coincompetition: Hidekazu Kimoto, Tony Wonder, Marco Pantaleo. And me....nd then a big surprise: Bonus section, with an effect of Yoshihiko Mutobe, and other artists including Clement Kerstenne fourth place at the coincompetition...

At this point I decided that I will arrange a second coinmagicsymposium next year! When I was in Milan I spoke with Curtis about this, and he convinced me to arrange a second! I decided that I will do it in Milan, again with the help of my french friends and an Italian friend.
