If you watch Giovanni’s performance of this routine, you will be fooled.
Probably multiple times - and it will be wonderful.
This is one of the best routines I’ve seen in years. A fully fleshed out ballet of magic that will have your audience shaking their heads in disbelief.
This is not a coin trick. It’s a theatrical performance with deep magical impact. It takes place in virtual silence, with only a few well placed sounds to accent the magic and enhance the drama. You’ll fool yourself into thinking that in each phase it will be easier to catch the loads but – in all likelihood – you’ll be nailed again and again.
Giovanni’s routine was born of Goshman’s seminal Salt Shaker Routine, but Gio has taken this to an entirely new level – no easy task. The DVD covers every aspect of the routine in painstaking detail. What shakers work best, the type of coins to use, what wand Gio prefers, napkin types – nothing is left out. There’s even a nice nod to Harrison Carroll and Victor Trabucco for my WNY readers.
Best of all it’s self working.
Ok, I’m joking about that. But it’s not nearly as difficult as you might believe. I would say the techniques are well within the range of any moderately skilled coin worker. I would add that if ever there was a reason to polish your skills, this routine is it.
The folks over at Magic Estate have really done a great job in shooting this. It’s clean, easy to follow, and filled with valuable close-ups. Since Gio is a lefty, there’s even a great little feature that allows you to flip the screen for the instruction sequence. One final note, Gio teaches this effect standing in front of a mirror. I watched the video for some time before I realized that I never saw the camera man! I mention this only because it created a magical moment by itself – apparently Magic Estate hired a vampire to shoot this video!
Buy this, you will not be disappointed.
