The first production was a little iffy. You use a lot of flash paper. Try flash string for the silk production. Try match pulls. Might look better. Keep working on finding the loops for the harnesses. At least you have the guts to attempt topit work.

that's stuff I'm scared of.

And may I suggest turning the last ball into a dove instead of just putting it away. I was expecting something other than just putting it away.

Hey David, yeah, you use a lot of flash paper.. LOL..

And a few suggestions:
-Use match pulls
-Have your loops coming out of your jacket a bit so that you don't have to reach inside and find them
-I feel that the second time you mad ethe ball appear, you don't need to do the magical gestures with the other hand, because in essence, the ball is already vanished.
-I agree with the above comment about the last ball
-I would have the cloth pulled up on the cage from the start so that they can see the doves going in 1 by 1

Good luck,

The video is no longer available so I wasn't able to see the act however in reference to Vinnie's comment about having the loops outside the jacket, a very effective presentation can be made if the loops are inside the jacket. It's takes a little more practice but you can be much closer to your audience if the loops aren't visible. Shimada has his loops out of site and Peter White from P&A silks has a very nice set up for this type of loop placement.

It doesn't look good though if you have the loops under the jacket and have to search for them. Again, it's a matter of practice and presentation.
