David Stone is one of the brightest rising stars in magic today, having collected an impressive number of prizes and awards from top competitions. David won the 3rd prize for Micro-Magic at FISM in Stockholm, Sweden in 2006 and was voted in April 2008 the TMW Award for Best Magician. In 2010 the FFFF convention voted David to be Guest of Honor for FFFF in 2012. His most recent book, Close-up: The Real Secrets of Magic is a best-seller in France and was sold out in less than 15 days after its release. His DVD, The Real Secrets Of Magic adapted from this book was nominated Best Magic DVD 2006 by Genii and Magie Magazines. He has also produced two best-selling videos on coin magic.
Effects from this lecture are possible standing-up and can be applied in real working conditions.
1. The first half of David,s lecture consists of magic effects created using coins and cigarettes: easy tips and easy subtleties, accessible tricks and other techniques: some coins routines from his videos, card routines, and surprises.
2. The second half is dedicated to “table hoping.” After having asked several people to sit around his table, as if in a restaurant, David performs his entire routine from table to table. He then talks about what is written in his notes, “Table Hopping Secrets” by illustrating each effect with explanations. This
is about practical side of “table hopping” and related to professional situations (the verticality of effects, setting up the effects, approaching a table, the opening trick..).
