Nick Popa, Crystalise, Live Performances, Haunted Key, Harry Potter, Theory 11 & 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 a full live performance of Crystalise which is a new routine that Craig published at Blackpool 2022. It is based on Neil Preet's Ball In Salt Shaker but with a lot of differences. In this video you see a full live performance of how the routine plays in the real world.
2. You see the same live performance of Crystalise but this time with a commentary track over the top of the performance. Craig talks about misdirection, audience management, performing for multiple spectators and more.
3. Craig reviews The Haunted Key by Murphy's Magic. This is absolutely the best version of the haunted key we have ever seen. You see a clip of Ryland performing the trick and then a review going through why the prop is so good.
4. You see a sneak peek of a Talk Magic Interview with Nick Popa. Nick works with Penguin Magic and is a fantastic creator in his own right. He has some incredible tricks that he is bringing out in 2022. In this sneak peek he talks about how he started working with Penguin Magic. The full interview is dropping on Saturday right here on Magic TV.
5. Craig does a deck review of The Harry Potter Playing Cards by Theory 11. There are 4 decks in total, one for each house at Hogwarts School at Witchcraft and Wizardry. Craig puts the decks through the paces and talks about whether they are any good or not.
That's everything for this week's 5x5 Magic. If you have any questions you would like to ask, feel free to let us know in the full episode below. Thanks for watching.
