Hello!

Well, I'm not a coin magician really and my skills in coin technique don't stretch too far past the basics, but I've recently fallen in love with the fantastic Eric Jones routine "Oxy Clean Coin Routine"... I've filmed a silent video of myself performing it and please forgive the rather poor film quality. But I'd love to hear your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions on this!

Very good.
The first appearance and final vanish need some adjustment. Perhaps lower the left arm a bit and work on the "tell" of the right fingers. Eric is masterful at this.
Keep up the good work.

Got to agree with jazzy snazzy. You have really slowed down your movement giving the magic time to "work", a huge improvement. Keep it up, Michael.

Thank you both! I'm definitely going to work on the steal and replacement more as those seem to be the two big issues.

Nice. I really admire the way you keep at practicing and then asking for feedback.

Maybe the silence is a clue. Maybe it doesn't need more than a few words. I agree with the others about the first production and last vanish. Also, though I'm not familiar with all the mechanics of this routine, the "sound" of the coins doesn't seem right. Is there anything to do to correct that?

Yes... Get better "coins" Smile

Thanks again for your feedback! I do have original patter for this routine but I didn't use it simply because I didn't realize the webcam I used to record it had sound Smile

I've filmed the routine again, hoping the choreography is more of what it should be Smile does this look better?

There ya go! Much better. Watch how Eric slightly turns the torso in all his routines.
