;) I want to thanks everyone again for all advice you gave me in forum and PM

I took them all and practiced, disscused with other magicians and tried to smooth the routine out, here you have video of how I'm going so far

I like it a lot, as I said in your video
but I think that the visual frame that you used its too small
in my mind, the moves as palming a coin or changeovers , need to be covered with good direction of atention.
also no looking in the wrong moment ( 51 ´ for example)
I can see a lot of practice,but in this liiiitle details can rest the astonishment.
also , you can rec again your routine with your "imaginary coins" pattern.
all IMHO

I enjoyed it but you seemed a bit too tight and cramped in a few places.

Obu, I liked it but you do run into several things that Pablo correctly points out here. Still, I think you got some good stuff in there and a bit of streamlining would do some good. Smile Too much hand to hand stuff (transfers) kills the magic IMHO and makes it all begin to look moreso like cleverness in hiding the coins instead of magic. Just the same, keep up the good work. -Mb

Thanks again, I'm already doing this for lay people and get really nice reactions, but there is still much work to do.
Next time I'll record it with a patter and hope you'll understand at least part of what I'll be trying to say in english Smile

And I'll try adapt the things you said in here

What could you say about the first production? I was disscusing it with some of my magi friends about if there is need to more than one transfer and most of them agreed that 2 of them are better and lay peop;le see more amazed by this too.
What are you thinking?

There is a lot of issues with your right hand sort of "hanging there" in the later part of the routine.

Also, didn't care for the initial production. Maybe do that Ilsa's production from Curtis Kam's new DVD? Would add more to the idea of the coins being invisible or imaginary.
