I just want to know your thoughts on this card control that I think I created.
There is a lot of hand movement. Ya
I hate to be honest but it doesn't look natural at all for hand movements and the way someone would handle cards thus looking suspicious.
I agree with the other two posts. The move itself is quite good, I couldn't see it. But it seems to have too much hand motion. It also made a loud noise, though that may just be drowned out by patter.
Some honest critique: I can definitely tell you were trying to control a card, which is not ideal in a performance scenario. You don't want to scream to your spectators that you're doing anything with the cards, and this does that. While a neat idea, it isn't something you could use for real world use. There isn't motivation for spreading the cards forward in that manner because they're supposed to already be squared up in the action of pushing the card in, and it looks heavily unnatural.
