Still a work in progress and not the best performance. I tend to over think things when I'm on camera.

It's a card effect that has the spectator select a random card from a shuffled deck and then discover its suit and value using their intuition.

This can be done hands off with the spectator doing all the shuffling and procedure. However, for the sake of moving things along at a reasonable pace, I did most of the handling.

Would love to hear some feedback!

I think it is quite long ... probably seemed longer due to your not really talking through each section. The effect itself is good imo, but it really needs better performance! You gave no real motivation behind the turning over and messing around with the cards. It seems that you only messed with them because you had to, ie. like any mathematical trick. I think this could be brilliant if it were given a boost in showmanship and energy! Along with motivation for all the card handling!
The effect alone, the mechanics of it and the ending?
Very nice! I like it.
