Hey guys,
after seeing myself on camera for the first time, I have noticed how much of a david blaine approch I have taken towards my close up cards presentations, and I was wondering, which books/dvds would be best for learning how to script a close up routine

thanks

Joe

I would second that recommendation and also encourage you to look at Ron Bauer's series of books.

Hi Joe,

What kind of tone/genre do you want to develop? Gambling demo, comedy, mentalism...?

If you are doing card work (like I am also), then "Strong Magic" by Ortiz is a must read. I would also highly recommend a DVD by Eugene Burger called "Exploring Magical Presentation." I got several helpful ideas from that.
Magically yours,
