Topic: Update: 21st Century Coin Mechanics DVD
Message: Posted by: Larry Barnowsky (Jan 1, 2018 12:07PM)
I am about half through recording a performance and teaching high definition DVD based on my Book [url=http://www.barnowskymagic.com/21ccmpage.html]21st Century Coin Mechanics[/url].

More than a dozen vanishes, changes, and transfers are taught as well as multiple complete routines. Additional material not in the original book will also be included.

Detailed tutorials on the Flying Changeover Palm and The Universal Retention Vanish are among the many sleights covered.

The DVD contains what I feel are the most important sleights and effects in the book. The book will soon be out of print and there are no plans for a reprinting.

I don't have a definite publication date yet, but my goal is to have it ready by the end of February.

Send me a PM or email (barnowsky1@aol.com) and I will personally notify you when it is available for purchase.

And Happy New Year. :bubbly:

Besides the sleights listed on a prior post, there are many other moves and sleights taught in the context of the individual routines.


Larry
Message: Posted by: Mb217 (Feb 1, 2018 06:03PM)
Have to agree here...this is a little treasure chest of moves, routines, and magic all explained very well by Dr. Larry. He takes you through, in great detail, all the background work in some of his best coin routines. Great to see him explain & show the nitty-gritty as to his wonderful URV, and that Boomerang Coins and Copper Silver set are great effects to do anytime, any place. 🎩

Again, the actual demonstrations are clearly explained and shown from every angle, again & again. The whole presentation of the DVD is top-shelf and well-shot. You'll really enjoy this one from The Good Doctor as he shares some real show-pieces with you from his personal arsenal to yours. :)

Highly Recommended! ✔️

The DVD is wonderful. All those moves I read about in the book are taught in such precise detail. Seeing the sleights incorporated into actual routines is motivating me to practice more and more. The Copper Silver by Brute Force number two is a favorite and I love how straightforward and deceptive it is. The URV is the holy grail of vanishes and this DVD has greatly helped be toward perfecting it. Can't say enough about this DVD. Highly recommended.

Message: Posted by: wunceaponatime (Feb 15, 2018 02:24PM)
Love the DVD. Question. What kind of cups are you using for the coin and cup routine? I assume the large one is from a cup and ball set. What about the smaller one?

David
Message: Posted by: Larry Barnowsky (Feb 18, 2018 07:28AM)
The large cup is from a copper cups and balls set I bought on Ebay years ago. It was not from any known cup maker as I recall and was pretty inexpensive.

The little cup is an interesting brass piece. It is from an Owen Snuff Box and came with a cover which I don't use for this effect. Things like coins or a ring are placed in the covered cup and the cup is placed in the wooden Snuff Box. When later retrieved the items are found to be gone.

You can use any Okito type coin box bottom that will hold the silver dollar or what ever size coin you are using. In fact almost any container including an empty card box could be used. I originally didn't use the little cup, but placed the coins under the corner of the mat instead.
Message: Posted by: boxjumper (Feb 19, 2018 07:25AM)
That Double Helix Change is truly eye candy. Had the book but never tried the move until I saw it performed and explained on the DVD. Very ingenious sleight.

BJ
Message: Posted by: Dougini (Feb 19, 2018 08:09AM)
I like that the moves are different than the average coin sleight. I am having trouble with the Flying Changeover Palm. The feint MUST look like the load! There should be no noticeable difference. It's a knacky thing. I need a better mirror.

Doug
Message: Posted by: Larry Barnowsky (Feb 19, 2018 05:11PM)
Doug,

Remember that both hands move right to left together. Try doing it without the mirror and without looking at your hands. When I do it, I am looking at the spectator and not my hands. Once you get it, muscle memory will allow it to be done without looking.

Larry
Message: Posted by: Dougini (Feb 19, 2018 08:56PM)
Without the mirror and without looking at my hands...OK! Thanks!

Doug
Message: Posted by: blackstone99 (Feb 20, 2018 05:00PM)
I've tried it with no mirror and no looking at hands. The move works much better and more fluid. Thanks for the suggestion.

Paul
Message: Posted by: boxjumper (Feb 21, 2018 08:31AM)
I have been working on the Pivoting Changeover Palm. My hands are small so I had been practicing with halves initially and finally moved up to dollar size coins.
What a powerful tool!

BJ
Message: Posted by: Larry Barnowsky (Feb 22, 2018 09:30AM)
The Pivoting Changeover Palm can be used as a secret transfer or even as an acquitment. The sleight is very deceptive even at angles to the performer. [url=http://www.barnowskymagic.com/21CCMDVD.html]DVD info here[/url]

The book is great and besides all the sleights and routines taught there are two amazing routines at the end, including Coin thru balloon and The Watch Wallet and Ring without any pulls or sleeving. Even if you don't perform the routine the clever design of it will entertain you as a magician.

The Watch Wallet and Ring has been so popular that I sell the chapter separately as a manuscript.
I would recommend that beginners work on the Open Palm Retention Vanish first before trying the URV. Also I would recommend learning the Pivoting Changeover Palm before tackling the Flying Changeover Palm.

There are two versions of the transposition on the DVD that are done without a table, just the hands as you say.
Also the four coins across (Boomerang) is also done with just four coins and no table. That effect is my go to always ready impromptu routine.
