If you aren't familiar with this series, it's where Craig Petty talks about 5 different subjects. He gets five minutes to talk about each subject. When the timer reaches zero then we move 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 unedited performance of Craig's Card Under Box routine at a Parlour Show. When you are performing a routine that uses a lot of misdirection in a parlour environment there are a lot of factors to consider. In this routine you see everything from the audience's POV.


2. You see the same Card Under Box routine but this time there is a commentary track over the top. Craig talks about picking audience members, audience management, building a relationship with the spectator, Off beats and on beats, misdirection and how to build to a climax of a routine.


3. Craig spotlights Metal Sheep by Gary Jones. Gary Jones is an incredible magician from the UK and has created hundreds of commercial routines. This is one of his best creations. For those 'In The Know' Craig is using Poker Chips from the Ammo Set marketed by Full 52.


4. Talk Magic Sneak Peek. You get to see a sneak peek of an upcoming interview with Anthony Linden. Anthony created the Suit Jacket Escape and is one of the best corporate magicians in the world. In this sneak peek Anthony talks about how to adapt a trick for a corporate presentation. Full interview coming soon.


5. Craig reviews 'The Only One' by Martin Bresass. This is a routine where a named card appears in a deck of blank cards. It is the only card in the deck that is not blank. Craig reviews the trick and performs it.
