I know this isn't the best quality or best (or even close to it) performance. But here is the link to it on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbcZrEIrz5U

Please give me your feedback. **This was not made to copy or duplicate Shawn Farquar's routine. I wanted to just put a montage together to the same song.** Thanks!!

To be completely honest and give you decent feedback I would say you need to work on making your DL's more natural and without the 'get ready'. I realize it was a long piece you were putting together there and timing is important to following along with the lyrics. Shapeshifter was a bit too contorted, you really don't need to bend the cards that much. It should be much more of a quick flick (show the indifferent card clearly and quickly snap it to change and keep your right hand steady to really show how visual the change is). It was hard to see the ending there because of the color of the cards got washed white, at least for me.

I am not much of a flourisher so I really can't comment on that beginning portion. I tried to keep this as constructive and positive as I could so I hope you take it as such. Keep working and keep practicing. I hope others will take note that you asked for feedback to improve your performance and be as helpful as possible here.

Hmmm...your video bears an uncomfortable resemblance to mine, which I uploaded 2 years ago:

Not quite sure how I'm supposed to feel right now actually...

Hey Evan,

That's very decent of you. Thank you.

Don't worry, no harm done. :)

Take care,

Logan

I really like this music.

This is the music with which Shawn Farquhar won the 2nd place at FISM, in 2006, in Parlour Magic.

Take a look:

Not bad , Evan, a bit of work on the DL's and it will be excellent.
