  2. On the biddle trick, you don't have to mention that you are giving it a couple of cuts, they can see it. And the false cuts with it weren't needed also.

    thats all i've watched so far.
     
  3. Ok thanks for telling me.
     
  4. WARNING: You are about to be constructively criticized:

    • Better intro, much smoother
    • I hate the hand gesture, and the creepy whisper
    • The classical music score isn't working for me
    • Don't use Criss Angel's music, you say you want to separate yourself from him, but using his music doesn't do that at all. I will be the first to admit that it is catchy though
    • Work on your double undercut, or whatever cut you used to bring the card to the top
    • No more camera cuts, get one, good camera
    • If you must keep the continuous shot thing, please use a less-ugly type-face and color
    • Tell your camera man not to fall asleep at the camera, my camera man does that too :)
    • You don't need to point out that the card vanished, they can see that
    • Let the spectator spread through the cards, it's much more powerful
    • Music with lyrics can be sort of disorienting
    • I've always hated that force, just a person preference though
    • There's that whisper again
    • Are you being paid to run these commercials?
    • Not too bad of a presentation, the end could've been played up a little more
    • What are those random camera cuts about?
    • The guy can see with his own eyes, you don't need to point out that your shaking the cards or that the card turned face-up
    • You handled the cards very awkwardly
    • It didn't look to me like you did it any slower than before

    Overall, better than previous "episodes" improvement is still needed. I am trying to improve my magic as well, so I'll try to follow my own advice, haha.
     
  5. Thanks those I can actually take. Criss angel musci and that david copperfield music are the only songs I have with no words in it. Do you have any sugestions for songs I should get. I stopped the continous shot thing. The one with it in it was edited months ago. I do get things for proting people in my video ( I can get anything I want from them). The "I will do it slower was just an excuse so I could do it again. I wanted to make the effect longer).

    Thanks again.
     
  6. Well, I use Dana Hocking's music:

    There's also http://www.royaltyfreemusic.com/ which I believe is mainly instrumental. I don't know if you play any instruments, but if you do, you can make up a simple riff or chord pattern and record it with a good audio recorder like this one:

    My friend and I laid down two tracks a few months ago that I used in my videos for a while. He played drums, and I played guitar. I'd be happy to send you those tracks for free as long as you credit us for the music.

    :confused:


    Come up with another phase then, maybe start out with one of the cards turn face-up, but not visually. Kind of like Twisting the Aces.
     
  7. It's the biddle trick, no need for breathing.
     
  8. Its okay, He took the "Go_Out.Perform" concept and changed it into:




















    GO.Out.BREATH
     
  9. For the Biddle Trick, You can't say continuous shot after cutting the shot 3 times lol

    EDIT:: Also I am not too fond of the whole portraying Criss Angel thing... IMO...
     
  10. Thats a great idea thanks. Sure i will give you credit for the music. Thanks
     
  11. Well, I agree. I feel like you came off as sorta egotistical in the performance, and using Criss Angels music and hand gestures doesn't work (for him, either!).

    I advise getting a better camera.

    And if you need music, I write music (on several instruments) which I can send you some of for free as long as you credit as well.
     
  12. Yeah I could give you credit as well.
     
  13. You have been PMd, one's about a minute long and the other is only like 0:36. They're ok, recorded with very poor equipment.
     
  14. Ok thanks i'll check it out and pm back.
