If you are unfamiliar with the concept of 5x5, it is hosted by Craig Petty. He gives himself five minutes to talk about five different subjects of magic with a countdown timer at the bottom of the screen. When the timer hits zero, he immediately moves onto the next topic. It's quick and snappy and you never know what you are going to get. In this week's 5 x 5 Craig covers the following topics:
1. You see a full live performance at a Corporate Gig of a ACAAN which Craig has been performing for years. It's perfect for a walk around situation and really packs a punch.
2. You see the same performance but this time with a commentary track over the top. Craig talks about building up reactions, topping and tailing performances and more besides.
3. Craig reviews Alakazam's version of the Rising Card Deck which is made by Rob Bromley. This is an awesome routine which more people really should be doing.
4. You see a sneak peek of an upcoming Talk Magic interview with Christian Grace. Christian is one of the most prolific magicians in magic at the moment and he is very creative. His interview is dropping on Saturday and in this section you see a sneak peek of what is coming soon.
5. Craig revisits ONE by Matthew Underhill. This is a great trick for weddings. Craig suggests other ways to handle the routine to make it more practical for walk around performances.
That's everything for this week's Magic 5x5. You can check out the full video on Magic TV. If you have any questions, let us know in the comment section.
