Well, at least we are all smart enough to know this guy is on the "RIGHT TRACK" ... I believe we need to congradulate him reguardless.... He is showing his "COIN MAGIC" at any cost!!! And nothing is more important than that of a person learning & loving the art of magic other than showing it to his peers ( here on the Café) and eccepting whatever criticism comes from it.

We were all there one time and we all know what it feels like to love the art of magic and want nothing more than to show what we learned, be proud of it and for people to see it.

This guy will learn best by what he is doing and by all the positive & negative things he will be hearing about his sleight of hand close-up magic!!

I personally believe anyone with the love, desire, motivation and drive to learn close-up magic can become an absolutely "FANTASTIC MAGICIAN"...especially combined with their passion , ambitions and knowledge to this excellent art !!

I never thought it was terribly convincing either. Check Ouellet's performance of the move on his companion tape. I think you'll find mine looks pretty much the same as Gary's

The action of the coin in the right hand looks similar to Mulholland's Slide Vanish (Bobo, p. 28). It looks like Ouellet was trying to improve on that move by making the receiving hand take the coin more naturally. But the original is quite good and more effective than Ouellet's "improvement."

I have never used it. Just looking for feedback. that's the beauty of sessioning.
Vinny inspired me to have the guts to show stuff to 3ach other wether its perfect, pretty good, or not so great.
Thanjs for the feedback on this interesting move fellas.

I think it could look good in the midst of a routine. Hard to get a good handle on it by just seeing the move itself.

I agree with Mickey, being bold enough to put it out there is a good thing.

Very true Mike. We tend to look at individual moves/sleights and appraise or criticize them as stand-alone effects. Most will appear much better when tucked in to a well-conceived routine.

After working with the move a little, I can see where Ouellet was going with the idea: an attempt to make the slide vanish more of a "take" than a "put." It might be worthwhile to work on the move, and as pointed out by Mike and Jim above, it would no doubt work better with motivation and in the context of a routine.

I see where this could be a good move. Man. I thought I was agreeing, but now see how that "lame" remark sounded! Yike! Sorry!

This post brings up an interesting question; should it be criticize it's shortcomings, or applaud the effort ? In my opinion the only answer is 'both'.

We should be encouraging any attempt at our craft, which includes constructive critical comments. Just my 2 cents....

Then there is the other side of this coin (!): watching clips of so many talented magicians can be a little intimidating when it comes to posting my own attempts ! To my thinking, it takes a level of courage to post a video, particularly for amateurs.

This is John Mulholland's Slide Vanish right out of "The New Modern Coin Magic" By J.B. Bobo Page 23.

I bet that there could be a nice visual retention if performed properly.
