Anyway, I loved the second trick josh, I think the idea is great. No offense though, but the presentation and patter weren't good at all. The reasoning for pulling out a bill and making washington turn into lady gaga didn't make any sense. Saying "I'm going to read your mind in a weird way (<paraphrasing)" is a poor motivation for the effect. But if you can justify all that through patter, I think you have a neat effect. I also think it would be nice to add more humor to the effect (so many possibilities with celebs). Nothing to say on the actual effects, as both were performed well. Just work on you patter and presentation, because as these effects are, you just seemed to be a guy doing "tricks", and it was a bit dull. HOWEVER, who am I to say anything, because she seemed to enjoy the effects, so that's good (but I still think presentation would improve these a TON).
Keep it up man!
Thanks for your feedback! yeah I'm currently messing around with patter on that one. The effect is still in the prototype stages. My current patter involves me making a bet with the spectator, we both bring out a dollar for our bet, but since this was webcam I had to adapt it a bit. The main reason I wanted to try out this effect on Megan is because I had just finished making up the new gaff and wanted to see the reaction I got. Next time I do this effect live in person I'll make sure to post it so I can get feedback on the patter
Thanks for your help!
