    What's up everyone. Been a few since I've been on. But today I'm wanting to get some feedback on an effect called GEEK. It's completely new in method. But as of right now I'm in the mix of releasing it. There are a few sites interested and even a chance to be aired on a television magic series coming out at the end of the summer. Here is a demo of my effect called GEEK. Please feel free to give feedback. Good or bad. I definitely want this to grow and blossom into something special. So here it is.
    I do apologize in advance for not embedding the video. I'm using an iPhone 5 and haven't figured that part out yet.

    I liked the effect. However, when you are "putting" the coin in your eye, it did not look very believable. It looked too fast. I would slow down immensely. If you think about what your actually portraying, it would take quite a bit of effort to accomplish. It wouldn't be over in a matter of seconds. Nice job for coming up with something. It would also be nice to see a live performance in front of an audience. Thanks for sharing!

    Eh bro, thank you very much for the feedback. It will be in production in the next month and I will definitely use your advice. When it's finished, it will look as if it is really going in the eye. And with a video infront of an audience, before it's done in production I will have a performance in live action. Again, thank you very much for your input.

    No problem! I love seeing original magic. I think we should bounce ideas back and forth one day! Take care.

    This kind of reminds me of iVanish.

    Out of curiosity, how long have you been performing this?

    Great question. To be honest, Bens iVanish gave me the idea to come up with this effect. I came up with the idea almost 6 years ago. A lot of trial and error. But over the years I've manage to put something together that looks like the video. IVanish is a great effect itself. But the method I've come up with is completely different in every way. And with the feedback I've gotten so far, I plan on trying to make it better.

    I wanted to say thank you to everyone that has viewed this. I really appreciate it. I didn't think I'd even get 50 views, let alone over 100. Again thank you everyone.
