Any feedback would be great, it was shot quickly and edited quickly to send to a client. If you have an input or advice for a longer one in the future which I will be doing it would be great.

I didn't care for the blurred start of the video but the rest was nice. I would show the faces of the cards for just for a bit longer during the spreads between the hands and also tilt the cards downwards so the faces can seen better but that's me. Other than than those very small couple of points nice job.

I don't see the need to include close ups of the pass, for instance (nice one, BTW). But, more important, the feeling I have after one vision is that there is more show-off (to say it in a "mean" way) than magic. I would cut-off the flourished (just a few selected ones here and there) and a a couple of really magical sequence. There is much on your video, a bit too much as far as I am concerned.

I like the transition from the blur/mumble intro to the clear/music part. But the intro could be shorter.

I think this teaser tells the viewer one thing: You have spent many hours alone with a pack of cards. Of course, it tells the viewer absolutely nothing about you as a performer. What audience is this video supposed to be for? You say you sent it to a client, but it doesn't sell you to anyone.

Prospective clients want to see how you'll interact with their guests. I don't understand the point of a promo video (or teaser) that shows absolutely zero live footage.

It's flashy though.
