Hi,

There are so many wonderful vanishes of a coin, but not so much visual productions.

Here's a coin production I discovered some time ago, hope you'll like it Smile

Lawrens is a wizard. The stuff he does with coins ain't easy but its pure magic....and very original!!

Tres bien!

Thank you for your comments Smile

There's a little controversy on my facebook page, where I also posted the vid.
It's originated by Mr Kevin King :
"Call the originator- Chris Kenner would love to see it! Hack."

I genuinely discovered this application of a well known coin sleight, and was very happy with it.
Now if Mr. Kenner came out with it as well, I'm very glad he did, but I bet he didn't publish the move...
all I know of Mr. Kenner's work is in his book, and I'm pretty sure that this production isn't inside Smile

Thoughts ?

Creativity is its own reward. "Originator" only applies when you wish to sell something,

and many can only imagine derivative innovation -- that everything most be a modification of someone else's work.

The thrill of non-derivative innovation is very special.

Just be prepared for such an attack for anything you ever create -- often from those who create nothing.

In this case you were apparently inspired by playing with a sleight, and not by copying another's work.

Others will copy your work and not give credit. Such is life.

The main thing is to keep creating. I will now be inspired to focus on productions more than vanishes. Thanks for that.

Like your site.

but that posting on Icups is wrong. I published a routine using tin-can phones years ago Smile

I totally agree with funs on this…

Probably everything was thought up by someone at some time or other, be it known or not. Your discovery came from your journey in this. I have never seen this by Kenner but I'm willing to bet that he didn't do it as well as you… Smile Your charming finesse with the move (as with all of your wonderful magic) is your own, and so is what you go on to create with it. Everyone won't be happy with that, but that's the way it goes in such creative waters. Still, it is a beautiful usage of a seemingly classic move. I had not seen it used quite that way, except maybe thinking of Sankey pulling a coin up through a glass table, sorta…Still, I love it! Smile

Just keep doing what you do my friend, because you do it very well. Smile And tell the poster ("Kevin King" - if it's the magician, he's a great closeup man, love his work) to tell Kenner to call you on it, I'm sure he would respect and could learn quite a bit from a real magical artist as yourself, as he is also. Smile Ahhhh, no blood, no foul...Onward!

If this move angly ?

Well I should have specify that my work with coins is devised mainly for table-hopping situations, where people are sitting and the performer is standing. In this case the move is not angly at all.

It would work in a parlour situation too.
May be more difficult to perform in cocktail situation, where everyone is standing, but not impossible...

I'm glad that you like this production, and thank you for the kind words.

I have so much more new coin techniques to share, and I would like to make an announcement : many people asked me when will be the release of Moneypulation vol.2 ; I told them soon...

However, I've sort of changed my mind regarding this project, because I've discovered so many applications of my DBTP move that it makes no sense (at least to me) to put them on a dvd right now.

Instead, I'm working on a coin act and I plan to present it in as much magic contests as I can.

What do you think ?
Good idea ?

And not for nothing, but Lawrens is the real deal when it comes to anything artistically magical… Smile

That was an incredible use of that move. Can you do it over and over on demand?
