I thought it was very good. The music was great !
Just a few points to mention:
You had 21 spots (quick performances)on the promo.
There were some weak segments (spots). For example: I'll go by the number in sequential order. Spot # 3,4,5,9,11,13,17 and the last spot 21.
Spot # 3, I would have like to see the pip move on the card
Spot # 4, I assume you are using WOW, didn't look like much/not clear
Spot # 5, The Ouija board. I'd replace that with something more visual
Spot # 9, The linking rings wasn't clear.
Spot # 11, Cap in Bottle. It looked like the cap was already in the bottle.
Spot # 13, Bite out Coin. Was too quick. Show the coin after it is bitten.
Spot # 17, Ring and Rope. Again not very magical.
The last spot # 21, Fire Wallet was shown before in the promo. I would have liked to see a knock out ending not a duplication.

I did like, as I said, the music selection as well as the layout of the video. The other spots like the card rise, spinning card, waterfall shuffle, moving fork, Hot Shot Cut, the cell phone, card productions for example were eye candy, pleasing to the eye and fun to watch.... I think if you could address the effects mentioned above and add some more visual effects or make them more clear it would help out. Also come up with a powerfull ending. Overall I really did enjoy watching your video. I'm just giving you my opinion.
All the best,
David Paul

Thanks for your comment, I'm glad you like it. The points you are mentioning is what I thought aswell. as I didn't edit the video(i don't even can) I will tell him that. What we did is we made several recordings with 3 camera's of full tricks and these are segments of them. So later on I show you the full segments. thanks for your advice, it is greatly appreciated

Yes, greatly appreciated indeed. The problem with this video was that I wanted to time everything to the music. Therefore you only see segments of some tricks. The other thing is that we want people to be excited and wanting to see more, and I see that you want to see more Davidpaul? Smile At least that aspect worked haha..

Btw, I'm Jordi. I am a member of the magiciangroup where Michiel is talking about. And I also edited this promo movie Smile
