Topic: Some Coin Box routines from Manila
Message: Posted by: rannie (Nov 11, 2009 02:33PM)
Here are some Coin Box routines that I enjoy doing. I hope this sparks some interest in this great prop and hopefully se and learn more stuff from you guys.


Having created quite a number of Coin Box routines.... I still find Roth's work on the slot box as one of the best routines. For those who have not read Roth's work on the box... I suggest you do. Mike Gallo has some wonderful and clever work on the box as well.

I have streamlined these routines and will share them soon. The videos were taken some years back.

Bring those boxes out fellas!

Keep it fun and magical!

Thanks Rannie. Very nice stuff there. I got a kick out of the Kanto Okito - very fast and very effective! I would imagine that the specs are astonished before they have a chance to even think about that one. :)

Is that a Roth Okito box?

Thanks!

Nice work. I'd like to learn the Okito Box once I have a better grasp at coin slights and vanishes.

He's a wizard with the coin box no doubt about it!

Rannie taught me a VERY cool bit with the Boston box when we first met that absolutely FRIED me and as far as I know I'm one of the few that he's so graciously shared it with! I need to dust my B box off and bring that one back out, it ROCKS!

Thank you TC! Yes that was David and Mike. It was in my home in Manila! That was a fun night indeed. I threw a going away and birthday party for David and Mike. All the important magic personalities were present. It was a lecture the Philippine magicians wont forget. These two gentlemen of magic are top notch! Wonderful human beings as well.

Mick.... see you soon Hermano!

Still fighting to keep your title. Congratulation to "The Boss"
Message: Posted by: rannie (Nov 22, 2009 08:34PM)
No need to fight for it Lawrence..Never had to... and its not even a title. Just a silly monicker since my childhood days. Just sharing some items that might re-spark some interest in the coin boxes.

Consider my interest "sparked" Rannie. It's a pleasure watching you perform. You rock.

I cannot recommend highly enough Okito 1-2-3 and Mystery Box by Tim Feher. I just got these a several days ago and they are not only great routines, but Tim gives lots of extras- handlings, thoughts on presentation, shows you things from different angles, etc. For someone like me who is still fairly new to magic, he has unlocked some of the mysteries for Okito box handlings and ideas.

Just the opener for Okito 1-2-3 was for me wonderful to learn- something that helps me see possibilites. While I may never be the greatest with an Okito box, these routines show me what can be done and really are very helpful.
Well worth the small cost!

They can be found using this link: http://vinnymarini.com/download/okito123.html


And rannie- what cool stuff!! Thanks for sharing it, inspiring!! Hope I didn't steal your thunder by mentioning Tim Feher's work!

No thunder was stolen 723sabre! The appreciation for the coin box was the thunder. Thanks for sharing your appreciation for coin box routines. Tim's routine is wonderful.

I have to mention.... MikPower's "Boston Masacre". Its a great routine as well.

It's pretty hard to offend Rannie. He's as humble as he is skilled in magic. ;) I agree, I absolutely love Mystery Box by Tim Feher. Both of these guys are great.

Boss, nice routines that you share with us, I like them a lot, keep up the good work!!
Message: Posted by: Corbett (May 7, 2010 10:17AM)
Rannie, do you have some of your box routines in print or video somewhere?
Message: Posted by: doug brewer (May 7, 2010 05:39PM)
Hey Rannie - great stuff! I think I've seen these before with the exception of the routine with Roth watching. Fun routines to watch!
Message: Posted by: rannie (May 10, 2010 08:17AM)
Corbett,

My routines are not in print. I do include them in my lectures.

Doug, thank you for your kind words. I might be in San Diego in the last quarter of the year. Let's hook up and do some magic.
Message: Posted by: doug brewer (May 10, 2010 09:59PM)
Rannie - definitely! Keep in touch as it gets closer to your arrival date.
Message: Posted by: Lawrence O (May 11, 2010 10:50PM)
Looking at your initial post again. I can only repeat my congratulations. These routines are both very creative and very deceptive.
