That was no trick photography.

Peace, use what you watch to figure out stuff. It increases your lateral thinking & helps you to develop tricks and routines of your own & that's always a good thing! Smile

Happy days..

I don't own the answer but I have a fairly good idea how it's done. No doubt it's available in most magic shops around the country, all of David Blaines other material seem to be gimmicks!

I think Todd might be refering to the fact that he might have given the cup to the homeless person in the first place and THEN started to roll the camera. Just a thought...

Watch him change hand positions just before the coins appear...

Coincidence? Absolutely!

Dried, compressed, and carefully timed.

The coins make it sink, and the sp***e pushes them up. This ones a steal from a kids book back in the 50's or 60's. I have to look at home, but I think I gave the book aspiring kid!
...think not that all wisdom is in your school. You may have studied other paths,but, it is important to remember that no matter who you are or where you come from, there is always more to learn.
