Saturday Night Contest - New Year's Resolutions


Aug 31, 2007
This week, I'd like to create a new trick using a double backer. I was playing with D1IE, and pondering what to do with the double.
This year, I want to double the amount of business. I'm working on some new promotional material.

I recieved a new video camera for Christmas and want to put it to use, my skills as a magician are not all that great and i hope to improve throughout the years to come.

This Week :: Improve on my Classic Pass. Ive been working at this for a while now and it is a tough one to do and i still have yet to get it right. Everytime i have a deck of cards and my attention is elsewhere, i am still passing the cards. I want to post my first video in a long time of me doing an acceptable and presentable Classic Pass.

This Year :: As a magician i am always wanting to get out and perform. I have been off and on for the past 4 to 5 years. My most memorable moment was 2 years ago when my friend and I did some street magic at the fair. It was one of the best times ive ever had. Aside from showing friends and family magic that was the only time in 5 years i have walked up to someone and showed them a trick. My goal this year is to get out and just do it. I want to actually have the courage to get out and perform for people on the street.

I do this sometimes although I give myself a month to achieve 3-4 things. Anyway, Here are my goals

This week - Practice Jay Sankey's effect 'Reinactment'. (This includes scripting, adjusting the handling etc) Honestly, I think might take longer than a week. But I'll do my best. I've also decided to get a little bit more into flourishing, I like the utility moves and things like TG deck flip and some packet spins and stuffs, but I don't really know any cuts to apply them to, so I think I'll start by practicing the Butterfly cut. I hope to complete atleast one of these two things.

This year - All this stuff

Thats it

Original idea, I like it !

Goal for this week: I just bought "The Mechanic's shift" by Joe Sevau and Richard Hucko, yesterday. So this Saturday Night Contest, is a good opportunity to work it all week long ! I must perform it next Saturday properly.

Goal for this year: I think that I should perform more for people in the street, in a mall or in a restaurant. So, for this year, I must go out and show my magic to everyone.
Nice SNC idea..
My Goal this week (part 1): performing Dresscode for someone, I have (hopefully) a new routine for Dresscode that I wanted to try.
My goal this year (part 2): completing my street magic video project that was abandoned last year because I have loads of "real" work to do. :(

So I just remembered I'll be out of town this weekend without access to a computer most likely, so I won't be able to post anything about my goals. I'll try and write out my Dresscode idea, but if not, I'll still be working on my year long goal. Cheers everyone!
