I agree that that is an excellent one-coin routine by Tim Feher, whose coin magic is excellent and who seems not to have posted here for a while.

One Coin 2.0. Fantastic one coin flurry! Like most (or all) of Tim's routines. He does stop in every now and then; not often enough though. I do miss him...

Yes his family and professional life took the front seat as it should ahead of his passion for magic. Great guy and skillful with both coins and cards.

I feel motivated to post my little three coin routine here called ghost coins: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQlSqeVHIc0

Patrick, you definitely have some skills but the routine has far too many unnatural hand gestures and over-proving to fool anyone.

You might be keeping people from seeing coins go from hand to hand (or the opposite depending on the sleight) but your exaggerated gestures let us know that "something is up" and we can probably guess what that something is... "the opposite of what we are seeing".

I suggest you look into anything you can get your hands on by John Carney and study how to be natural, what to do, what to avoid, etc., and the whole thinking behind that concept.

Too many coin magicians like to "look skillful" as opposed to natural, so they seek out teaching material that catches the eye.
This is the opposite of what they should be seeking out.

When you watch John do coin magic, nothing happens except things disappear or reappear.
Unfortunately that doesn't sell as many DVDs as the fancy/skillful-looking stuff but it is far more deceptive.

You may not know or perhaps you don't care, but but your video hides your face and your sunglasses hide your eyes, so there's no way to determine if you are even using your face/eyes properly during your routine. That is one of the primary things I would want to analyze if I were posting a coin trick.

I'd be happy to see a re-do after you've gained more understanding of the above.
