Just curious now that we have looked at why so many productions look so bad as per gr8gorilla's topic. Any opinions or favorites as to what is the best "most magical looking" production single or multple coins. For me the single coin production I think looks most magical is John Carney's the production he uses in Halves in the Mist.
For a multiple production Curtis Kams IIsa'a Appearence is magical.

Funny you bring it up, I just instant downloaded "Four Coins For Jimmy" by Nathen Kranzo off Penguin and I have had Splinter by Michael Eaton for some time, also an instant download from Penguin. I like them both for different reasons.

There is a nice description of a four coin production by Mike Gallo reprinted from Magic magazine on our website. Go to http://www.newyorkcoinmagic.net , find the Magic magazine article ( I'm not home but I think its in the current events section), and look in the back. There are several routines written up for you. Enjoy!

Poof Daddy I"m on my way to Penguin I haven't seen either of these. Carney and Kurtz are excellent coinworkers and masters of misdirection curiously enough. I have to think that the misdirection is a major part of what makes a great production or let's say more magical. I have seen Mike's production in Magic Magazine and that was a great article I enjoyed all of your interviews. MB looks good as always. Eric Jone's production looks good too. I have an old copy of the Close up Insider 1996 that is dedicated to Mike Gallo it has some great effects in it and well worth a read. I am always in search of as I assume many of you guys are to Thanks.

Another great production, although not easy at all - much practice required... Alex Geiser's The Prodigy http://thebluecrown.com/magic-tricks/the-prodigy.html
Eye candy for sure. I have a heck of a time with it and have had it for some time. ( although I don't practice as much as I should )

If any of you are thinking of getting the Prodigy, I would suggest you look at Wizard Product Review #85 first:

Link to show - Click Here! (this may not work) but just google for a Wizard Product review of the Prodigy. Frankly, my respect for Craig shot way up when he added how horribly angly this effect is, with the inventor suggesting that you do a display between your legs (how, pray tell, could you do that and look dignified?). Instead, he said, go out and buy Justin Miller's Silver Dream.

I agree--it looks magical on the video, but the left hand isn't turned over, come on! So in my opinion and that of Craig, this is a one-shot video wonder, without any use in a performing magician's repertoire. It is so angly it is useless. We can respectfully disagree with each other. But if we are to be magicians helping magicians, we also need to start calling these one-hit video miracles (which will be detected in real life) what they are: video deceptions. Instead, why don't we, like Craig Petty, suggest some useful effects, which are magical in the real world, and not just on a highly edited video deception.

I use a similar version of Reed McClintock 4 Co-Pro. It's angle proof and magical (with the first subtle move I fool magician)
The simplest, magical and best coin production I know is by J. Chanin.

Actually that is a very good way to do it. Lets say your sitting at a table with someone sitting in the chair to your right. You could spin to the side (still seated and perform this) It would cover all the Bad angles and look quite natural (look at picture 9 on pg. 157 of The Stars Of Magic, It shows Dai Vernon in a similar position. Doing Malini's Favorite).

I realize this is probably a very hard routine, but that is part of the fun. I have routines that I've worked on for years, to get down, keeps me challenged.

I agree its not for a group of people, but I have routines I do just one on one and they have really gone over well. If I perform for a group I use other stuff.

Wow, I sound like I'm selling this, Ignore me, I just think it looks cool, I guess now I need to buy it : )

Being a Philadelphian I have done a little reading on Jack Chanin's coin work and magic and was one of the greats. Prodidgy is a very good routine I believe Alex calls the first production of 4 coins the broom production it is very good and achievable with some practice. I agree with vampiro if you can't preform it for poeple live what good is it.
