Anyone know if he is currently working on another project? Loved his Sick DVD and would like to see more visual content like that.

He made a Sick 2 - released in 2019 - that you might like.

I think after the massive success with his Sick DVDs, he went more into producing other coin magician’s works. He is considered a master in his land, and every coin man that has seen his work supports that term of honor & respect…I know I do. 🙏🏽

I've thought about buying this but I believe most of it's just reworking of tricks from the first dvd correct?

I'm right there with you. His DVD, Sick, is what got me into magic. He is a master for sure.

I mean, you can look at the table of contents of both online. Some are similar plots, but after 10 years, it's probably less of a "rework" and more "completely different". There also appear to be some that are new. But there was so much on his first DVD that it's almost impossible not to have any overlap. In the end it's up to you.

Sick 2 is a good download with great instruction. While I really enjoyed watching the original Sick, I just didn't practice the material in it. But with Sick 2, I think the material is more practical for regular performances... there may be slight cross over from Sick to Sick 2, but I think it's well worth the investment.

As a side note, Ponta also published a one-coin routine as well that's available from "The Impossible Co." (the publisher of Sick 2).

I may check this out. I love the Winged Silver routine, probably my favorite finale to an effect ever. The only problem is that there is one move in there that gave me trouble. From what I understand, that move is explained better in Sick 2.

Unfortunately I never really studied Ponta's version of Winged Silver in his first Sick DVD, so I can't compare the two. However, he does say that the version he teaches in the new Sick 2 is his current thinking on the effect (which I took to mean a bit different from the one in Sick). Hopefully someone else can chime in on this.

All the best,
Steve

The middle one seems to be a link that doesn't work, a timed out signature or something.

I'd seen the first one, but that box one was fantastic. Beautiful and simple routining that worked so perfectly with the choice of props.
What a pity that it seems to only be in Japanese for now.

As mb said, most of Pontas work over the last decade+ has been turning his magic shop into a performance spot for magicians as well as producing a lot of videos for new japanese coin magicians.

He did release https://theimpossibleco.com/product/one-......e-smith/ which is part of another project he’s working on called The Impossible Company.
