Looking good. I’d recommend briefly keeping your thumb extended after the apparent pick-up. This enhances the retention-of-vision and focuses the vanish.

I believe Vernon gets credit for this face-up version of the Tent Vanish? Or maybe this is one of those disputed Finley credits? I can’t recall.

Thanks Rupert ! Vernon uses it in a very smart way in Slow Motion Aces but I think is Finley’s. John Carney has some very interesting ideas on it.

Well done.

Here is a 29-minute live performance of mine: https://youtu.be/lq2Rj1uf05M

I used to be quite sensitive to criticism; I am much less so now; so, please do criticize my technique, presentation, and posts. It helps me to grow, and I promise to take responsibility and not to be defensive.

Very nice!

I agree with Rupert, it kind of looks like your right hand is pushing something down.

Keeping your left thumb extended and perhaps turning a drop to the left would definitely enhance the vanish.

The still palming hand is a very nice touch. Try to avoid the pushing down movement appearance and you will have a very good vanish !

What drives the action of your right hand moving to the tabletop and then back to the pack?
Can (should?) you block the action so you start with the card on the table and move your left hand to the left to add it to the face of the pack? Then proceed with the pickup and magical effect.
Just a thought,

Tthe right hand gives the deck to the left hand to show the top card . this is a clip for magicians only. Maybe you missed that in the beggining of the clip my hands are empty, because I don't show them in the clip.This is a move in ´transition´.

I believe what Jon is suggesting is motivation for your hand to fall flat to the table -- something that doesn't really exist in your current handling.

Granted, you're just showing off the move. But it's a good suggestion nonetheless.

The setup and and replacement sleights look smooth. All well and good there.

Can I also recommend that considering that your right hand is "taking" the card, I don't think your left hand should move so soon after the card is taken.

I would suggest leaving your left hand frozen for a moment (with the thumb up) before moving it, similar to the mechanics of the french drop.

Vogler, I worked on something similar for a while. It's in the following video twice:

* from about 1:30 to about 1:45
* from about 3:30 to about 3:45



The Café gave me a lot of feedback, which improved the vanish a great deal.

You're quite welcome Smile

I love the french drop and actually once spent a few months teaching it to someone.

This is quite similar and I'm happy to contribute whatever I can.
