Nice. Diminutive, with ever expanding possibilities. I smiled at the mention of spectators losing track of the small coin.

Though I am far from a Mickey S, I love transformations, as well as work with small objects. (Like mini harmonicas)

There does seem to be something entrancing about "cold steel" and a "sharp edge." Back in my Medieval camp wandering days I would use knives for wands, ring on sword/arrow, and CR rope with a knife. There is a noticeable difference in audience focus and attention -- "directed focus" being simplified. Even allowing scissors to dangle form your fingers has an impact. Perhaps spectators are hoping you will stab yourself.


The "surprise" in this effect is profound , but the anticipation that something will be cut is essential.

Reminds me if the time, I asked a group if middle school kids, "do you want to see a cute bunny trick, or have me shove this
Horse syringe through my arm.

Thanks for the reminder Mickey, Funsway and others reminding me it's
Theatre as much as magic.

WOW!!!
As always, a deceptively simple, vibrant exhibition of poetry in motion; So simple that if I came across a manuscript of that routine I would have read right through it. However, seeing this rendition, I couldn't imagine another hands delivering such elegance

Mickey (please call when you are home!) you have taught me so much. Guys - if you are dying to know how the SUV is done, Mickey has already told you! audience-magician-coins Your ROV is really good enough. Play the audience, have fun, and "believe" what you are doing. Mickey's effect on us when we see his SUV has so much to do with his total communication using all he has. I admit that the mechanics are flawless and very visual, but without the rest, folks will just think that he is very clever and not totally believe the magic. With the total presentation (body and all), we get to the next level of belief. I used to do coin through table with a very close replica of the SUV, and it didn't sell all that well. Then I added theatrics, antics (mine, not a Mickey copy), and people freak out. Mickey knows that if he spells out the mechanics, it will not improve our magic - and will diminish this singular work of art that he holds on to. However, listen to what he tries to tell us about it. It's the real secret.
