So ive been workin on this for sometime. I know there is a bad angle but I think mostly because of the camera height... maybe not... I hate videos of man boobs, and beer bellies on a close up pad. :)) So I raised the cam up. whatever.... here is my version of JC wagners matrix with my own little twist but never the less JC's almost verbatim. :)
Oh and sorry the last coin isn't as it is supposed to be. ill be ordering the right one soon. Anyways.....

Not bad Db, a few good turns there. And I like the surprise elements. :D

You mention this "Matrix" being a J.C. Wagner trick, but I'm a bit confused, or is it that it is considered an Al Schneider trick when you use cards and half dollars instead of dollar bills and pennies? It all looks about the same but just wondering?

And it looks like you used your phone here to shoot the video...The next time turn it on its side and it will fill the picture on the screen, giving a better view. ;)

Thanks for posting. :)

Hey thanks MB. I am horrible w/ crediting. A lot of guys here can credit everyhing to the right guy.... I'm not one of them. 😐. JC uses cards and coins as well. I just thought I would switch it up a little w/ the different props. Thanks for the heads up on Al and the iphone trick! 🙂👍. sorry Al. 🙂

NP... ;)

Nice to give credit where it's due. "Matrix" is definitely an Al Schneider baby, and though it has went off into many variations by others, the basic approach and concept comes from Al, and remains one of his most tremendous illusions still to this day. But it's always fun to see it done by others, and the creativity sometimes added to it, as you showed well enough. :)

Good journey to you my friend. :)

It's a really good routine. My only "complaint" is your constant swaying back and forth. I would recommend that you perform seated. At least when making videos.
