3. Craig talks about a way you can ensure that you are getting honest feedback about your show every time you perform. Getting honest feedback is essential in order to improve as a magician. This is exactly how Craig ensures he gets honest feedback.
4. You see another live performance this time of Liquid Metal by Morgan Streebler. Craig has talked about Liquid Metal on this channel before. It is one of the best and most commercial routines ever created. However, a lot of magicians do not perform the routine as they are worried they will get caught. Craig talks about how to make sure you never get caught when performing the routine.
5. You see the same routine but this time with a commentary track over the top of the performance. Craig talks about time misdirection, making sure the moves are not spotted by audience members and more.
