Hi fellow magi.

After spending a good fews year in magic (coming up on 20 years), I have spent the last few years tinkering with a few ideas of my own. Below are links to a few of my 'original' effects.

Now, a disclaimer: Whilst I am very comfortable performing for people, performing for a camera without any form of interaction was rather awkward for me, so forgive the slightly lacklustre presentations and awkwardness of the videos. Next time I'll have to try and persuade the wife to sit in as a spectator to create a slightly more natural performance environment.

I make no claim that any of these tricks are completely original, but all I can say is that all the tricks below are a result of countless hours of tinkering with various ideas and none of them are anything I have ever seen before. For completeness I have listed my main inspirations below. If anyone knows of any other credits/similar effects I should check out, please let me know so I can add appropriate credits to my videos.

A Wild Stab In The Deck

This started out as an exploration of the mystery card plot but ended up turning into something else. Forgive the slightly clumsy half pass, Usually I get the spectator to pick up the joker, which acts as misdirection. Unfortunately, as we all know, you can't misdirect a camera on a tripod.

3 Second Aces

This is a four of a kind production I came up with a few years ago whilst playing with the Hofzinser Toss. The presentation was inspired by Michael Ammar's presentation of Derek Dingle's 'Rollover Aces' whilst the rapid fire nature of the location was inspired by Harry Lorayne's 'Halo Aces.' Normally I would only use this as a production proceeding another four ace effect.

Pass The Mustard

Inspired by Paul Gordon's 'Hellmans Aces' (itself a variation of Bill Goodwin's 'Hold the Mayo'), this is the 'final' version of a sandwich trick idea I have been playing with 4 years (i know, right. Seems obvious now).

So there we go.

I shall brace myself for your brutally honest collective feedback.

Just a guy who does card tricks...
