Re: Close up with video monitors

Close up on Video as a part of a Stage act is fine, and Jonathan is rigth about prerecorded
tricks.

But a hole show with magic on a large screen, is just like watching a movie.

Re: Ball and Cone question

Hi

Make the cone so big, that you can hide an extra load into it and still use it for the regular routine.
Then place a magnet in the hidden load, and you have a Chop "Cone" and a lot of other options.


Is there a version where you end with the cone solid ???
