Multiple Card Find Performance, Live Commentary, Preston Nyman, Packet Tricks, Deck Review | 5x5
The concept of Magic 5x5 has Craig talk about five different subjects of magic. He gives himself five minutes to talk about each topic. There is a countdown timer at the bottom of the screen. When the timer hits zero Craig immediately moves onto another topic. They're 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 a Multiple Card Find Routine. Multiple Card Find is a super commercial routine where a number of spectators select a card and the magician finds all of them. There are many ways of doing this trick however this is Craig's favourite handling. Many people on the channel have asked for more videos on The Multiple Card Find so here you are!
2. You get to see the same Multiple Card Find routine but there is a commentary track over the top. Craig talks about the selection procedure, how to control the cards, approaching a banquet style table and more.
3. Craig spotlights an older trick - Bleeched by Peter Duffy. This is a classic pack trick that you don't really see people doing anymore. Craig performs the routine and explains why you should be using it in your act
4. You get to see a sneak peek of an upcoming interview with Preston Nyman. Preston is the son of Andy Nyman and has released a new magic magazine as well as organising The London Magic Convention. This interview is fantastic and in this sneak peek Preston talks about why he set up The London Magic Convention.
5. Craig does a deck review of The Happy / Sad Playing Cards from Joker and The Thief. This is a new set of playing cards that everyone is talking about. Craig takes them through their paces.
