Hey guys,

Been playing with a couple of different of ideas, combined them together and added one or two things to them and ended up with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0dN9P-0lUQ

Would love to hear some constructive criticism and some of your opinions on this. Please no exposure, clearly.

Cheers,

Lloyd

It looks like your snapping the coin away somewhere. While I may not know where it goes, I def know when it goes.
I think it needs either more misdirection when you do the move or some sort of covering as you do it.

Looks somewhat familiar to me as to the action...Hmmmmmm, but it looks good enough. Also at about the 1:00 mark where you make the change from copper to silver the timing is off a bit...Brush that up some and it will look much better. Smile

Other than that, keep thinking about things my friend. Not much new under the sun I hear but under the moon, well who knows? Smile

Thanks for a taking the time to look over this and give some constructive criticism Chad. I find that the snapping motion is best covered by executing the move slower, but for camera, I made it a little quicker to not get caught out. It's possible to use the left hand in a false taking of the coin action, this completely covers the moment when the coin goes.

Cheers mate. Yeah, I realized how atrocious the coin change looks. At the time of filming, I was just trying to show off the main idea and I know notice that I've completely screwed up a simple change. D'oh!

Love the quote by the way Smile
