http://www.dananddave.com/news/For the past few weeks, there has been everything from tweets to message board discussions about a secret card project. Speculation about what this could be has been across the board. One thing for certain though, we were in Norway for a week filming with four of the most prominent young magicians and flourishers in Europe: Allan Hagen, Chris Hestnes, Erik Jansson and Jordan Lapping.
Although all these guys are featured on the project, it’s Chris Hestnes with the starring role. Chris is the most well-versed flourisher we’ve seen arise in the past few years. Inspired by The System, and then later The Trilogy, he developed his own style and created some truly stunning pieces that have especially caught our eye.
Judging from all the photos and videos posted, you might have thought we were filming a movie. Well, no it’s not a movie, just one of the most high-end productions for an instructional DVD the community has seen, and we’re calling it: Papercuts. It will feature a collection of original flourishes created by Chris Hestnes.
Behind it all is Allan Hagen, the producer, director of photography and editor of the project. It is Allan’s artistic vision and experience working on films that will bring Papercuts to life like no other.
