    New Erdnase change video

    Hey guys, my first post in the E Media forums, so be nice. ;)

    I posted this up a while back, my Erdnase handling that I kind of worked out late last year, and I only recently posted a video of it since I got a webcam. I have since got a newer webcam, better quality, and have refilmed the change. Here it is for those who haven't seen it, to enjoy and tell me what you think, what my flaws are etc. I'm working out some other subtleties to make this change flawless,

    Cheers to SleepingJag for the hosting

    I like the subtleties you've added to this. Makes an even better performance overall. MSN me if you're further interested in my comments (you will anyway).
    Thanks!

    Nice work Eddie

    Smooth handling overall but there are some things which i disliked or would do differently:

    1.) This is more about your performance - I think the first movement of out-jogging the top card is to large. I tend to try and make this motion look as small as possible with a few subtleties. What i would try is instead of placing a flat hand onto the deck, have your hand slightly cupped. Then as your hand comes into contact with the deck flatten it out and in the same motion you are out-jogging the card. This method minimises the image or even eliminates the image of your hand moving the top card.

    2.) This is more about the actual handling method - Once you have withdrawn the card i didnt like the way you covered the top card then rotated around the corner. I think it would look a lot smoother if after you withdrew the card you went straight into the rotation part without covering the top card again.

    Just my opinions

    Agree with the first part, but i think it is clever to cover the card again, once to distract the viewer from seeing that you have to allign the top card and to make it look smoother, it is really a nice build up. GREAT

    It looked pretty smooth to me. You should try some editing for your next video, though.

    Thanks guys, I had an older video of this and I decided to refilm this a few days back, on request, and it was really late and I haven't filmed this in a few months so yeah, it has changed a bit, but I will try add more subtleties I came up with to it and repost..

    Hey!

    When Jason came back to the states, he immediatly told me about your session! He said that you kept saying, "F*&%^(# B@stard" when he'd do some flourishes. LOL...don't worry, I feel the same when I see him handle cards. :)

    Very cool vid. Jason taught me this a while ago, yet even though I knew the method, your smoothness really had me going. It looked 'magical'.


    Next time Jason flies down to Australia, I'm hiding in his luggage, JUST so I can see you do that color change. hehe.

    See ya around mate,

    Alfred
