I just got interested in magic about 2 weeks ago. I found a local magic shop (believe it or not) and I purchased a closeup pad, a few books and a couple of decks of cards.
My problem is that I can't find any good reference material that will show me close-up the basics.
For example, I would like to have a DVD or Video where there is a camera about 1 foot away from the hands of a magician who is doing a "Double Undercut" or an "Elmsley Count" etc ...
There are plenty out there that show full routines, but they reference things like "Pinky Break" and "Control the card to the top" which is great but I don't know how to do that stuff.
The books are great but I feel clumsy when I do the basics, I want to see it done by a pro so that I can emulate.
Does anyone have any suggestions on where this media may exist ?
