Ambitious Card Live Performance, Card To Phone, Flicking Fingers, Hardest Rubber Bands & More | 5x5
5x5 showcases Craig talking about five different subjects of magic. He gives himself five minutes to talk about each topic while there is a countdown timer at the bottom of the screen. When the timer reaches zero, Craig immediately moves onto the next topic. The series is always quick, 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 live performance footage of Craig at a Corporate event performing ambitious card and card to phone. This is very old footage from about 10 years ago. Craig performs the routines in a mix and mingle situation and you get to see what he does in this environment.
2. You get to see the same Ambitious Card and Card To Phone routine but this time with a commentary track. Craig talks about hook lines, being aware of your surroundings, getting audience members involved in the magic and misdirection.
3. Craig performs and reviews 'The Hardest Rubber Bands' by Hanson Chien. These are special rubber bands that snap into the shape of a cock while in the spectators hands. As you can imagine the presentational opportunities are limitless. Craig talks about if they are any good.
4. Craig spotlights an older book which although out of print can still be found in some places. It is also one of Craig's favourite magic books ever written. The book in question is 'Don't Forget To Point' by The Flicking Fingers and is absolutely incredible.
5. Craig does a deck review of The Robot Deck by P3 / Penguin Magic. These cards are designed to look like futuristic robot themed playing cards. They are also Ryland's favourite playing cards. Are they any good? Craig puts them through their paces.
