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 live performance of The Quantum Deck in a live stage environment at Smoke & Mirrors in Bristol. Craig performs Wipe Out in front of a live audience.
2. You see the same live performance but this time with a live commentary over the top of the footage. Craig talks about performing on stage, the art of switching decks of cards on stage, focusing audience attention and handling selections out of range with the Quantum Deck.
3. Craig reviews a fantastic book on Mentalism by Paul Brook. This is one of the best books on mentalism ever written and includes some super practical commercial gems that would slot right into most people's acts.
4. You see a sneak peek of an upcoming interview with Kim Andersen. Kim set the magic world on fire with his release of Shrapnel and it was without a shadow of a doubt one of the best tricks of The Blackpool Magic Convention 2022. In this video you see a sneak peek of the interview which is coming this Saturday on Magic TV.
5. Finally Craig talks about creativity. In the start of a series of videos Craig talks about how to be more creative. In this video Craig speaks about changing moves using different objects in order to develop new sequences which allows the creator to move in a totally different direction.
