Bob Kohler is the producer of this good work of Dan's, but it can't be mentioned enough how excellent a coin man Bob is in his own right...One of the very best out there, bar none. Smile Just ask the best out there and they'll tell'ya! Smile

5. I don’t particularly like the immediate reproduction of all the coins at once,

Dan, while I agree that re-producing the coins one at a time can be very "pretty" (Tim Conover is living proof of that), it is not a true transposition of the cork and coins! OK...so maybe I am a purest Smile!

Hey Mike, you are right about a pure transpo between the cork and coins if that is what you are after. I will say that do like the immediate production more than a long drawn out reproduction sequence such as miming plucking the coins out from the side of the cylinder one at a time, etc.

Just as a purely subjective asthetic call I like a rapid fire one at a time production. For me, the cork transposes with the first coin, then the others appear in rapid succession. (So it is a pure transpo with the first coin - the other coins just magically jump out in succession). One of the main reasons I like this in my routine is because I use an extremely visible change of the cork to the first coin. That one little bit gets a pretty strong reaction. By the time everyone starts thinking about the cork again, I am showing it back under the cylinder.

Anyway, this is one of the things I like about watching other people perform the routine... one routine, so many options...

For those who want to learn the Cylinder & Coins routine, I am currently selling "The Magic of John Ramsay" Volumes 1 and 2 in THIS thread.

All the material on the videos are performed and taught by John Ramsay's only student, Andrew Galloway. If you want to learn the original Ramsay handling of the routine, here is an excellent place to start.

Gaget,

Thank you for your compliments.

Since you are a beginner, I want to ask you something...

When I did the explanations for my routines I tried to explain them so that a beginner could learn the routines. I know not all the routines would be in the technical ability of a novice, but how well were you able to understand all the techniques needed for the routines?

Pretty well, all the routines you take the time to explain them as easy as possible, I like how you go into the different phases of the routine to break them down. It may take me a little while to practice them, but they were pretty easy to understand. I've seen several coin magic DVD's and I did find yours to be the easiest to absorb the material...

For those around the Philadelphia area, I will be lecturing at Marc DeSouza's lecture theater north of Philadelphia, PA on November 29th.

Marc's theater is awsome, 30 tiered movie theater seats with cup holders, etc.

I plan on focusing on the material I put on the DVD: Walk around, no table coin magic and magic that integrates the hands of your spectators. Plus one of my favorite marketed effects that fits this criteria.

If time permits I will get into some of the fundamentals of coin magic for those interested...

Those interested can send me a PM and I can put you in contact with Marc.

Dan,

Any chance you would come down to the Baltimore area to Denny & Lee's? Cheers,

I was planning on it. I wanted to get this lecture under my belt before I started traveling.

I plan contacting Denny after this lecture is done.

The is DVD is one of the finest. Dan's magic, technique, teaching and infectious smile are a joy to watch and learn from. You see the magic performed just as it would be in a real situation. Once again Bob Kohler productions comes through with a winner!!

My favorite routine is still 4 coins, your hands, but there are others that will find their way into your repertoire.

I just got January's MAGIC Magazine with Kostya Kimlat on the cover.

Therein, Coin Man Walking was reviewed by Brad Henderson. It's always a little nerve wracking to open up a magazine and read for the first time what is going to be said about your work in a well circulated magazine review.

I think Brad's review was as fair and balanced a review of my DVD as could have been written. It was an overall positive review that pointed out what he liked, as well as a little bit of critique.

To my knowledge, this is the first review of the DVD I have read, for those interested, make sure to check it out in MAGIC.

And thanks Brad for the kind words.

Not enough attention is paid to ensuring the hands look natural, in coin magic, I think.

Dan, you're coin from sleeve was very nice. Thanks for putting thought into making that look good. It did.

Is that something you've worked on in front of a mirror or what?

Frank, I was first aquainted with that particular production from Troy Hooser's "exTROYdinary" routine. Most of my coin magic I have done in front of a mirror or on a video camera at one point or another to see how it looks. That particular move is not really technically demanding, so no I did not put a lot of practice into that production specifically. I just do the move, and that's what it looks like.

I got permission to re-print the MAGIC Magazine review I mentioned 3 posts up. It can be viewed at http://www.coinvanish.com

Dan, what do you think of doing 4 coins your hands with silver dollar sized coins instead of half dollars? Do you choose half dollars for a reason?
