Scale of originality: 1
harsh, yeah probably.
But it has been done before, even taught on a DVD by E....
Again, no it's not.
In the Ellusionist DVDs you're talking about, there was never a COLOR CHANGE using this sleight.
Are you telling me that Justin Miller is not using a color change to move the pips on the card. And its the exact same thing you are doing.
Lonnie dillan does a variation of that change as well were he changes the JC into the 4 Aces.
Now thats my part, its not original to you, don't claim it as such, but feel free to keep using it. I don't know why though, since that move is highly suspicious, you completely cover the deck, and it doesn't really look that good anyway
Now bring on the flaming.....
I have Army of 52, and it is not a color change. It's simply using the same sleight to carry out a completely different effect.
However, what I've done here, is use the same principle, but twist it so it becomes a color change.
Many sleights, changes, etc. use the same moves as others, but are slightly modified to achieve something else.
Loading a card on top of another, is different to performing a color change- which in my opinion, is an effect whereby one card changes into another in a 'magical' way.
While I appreciate your input, you don't really have any credibility to me ace18.
And I guess we just have different opinions on what's original and what's not.
OH and you're saying that moving pips on a card=changing a card?
....I beg to differ.
I do agree with you in terms of something can be original even if a piece of the effect is not.
But to sum things up, I haven't seen that used as a color change in my experience. Also, i hope my last post didnt come off as me saying this wasn't original to you you, I was just trying to provide a reference for the move. :]
Wikipedia.org said:Originality is the aspect of created or invented works by as being new or novel, and thus can be distinguished from reproductions, clones, forgeries, or derivative works. An original work is one not received from others nor one copied based on the work of others. The term "originality" is often applied as a compliment to the creativity of artists, writers, and thinkers.
What I still don't understand, is how loading a card on top of another, is a CHANGE? Ok, you may say that TECHNICALLY the card has changed, but it is not a color change?
