Richard Kaufman wrote:When I was in Toronto with David Copperfield working on the Project Magic book, Ouellet was in his employ at the time. Gary asked me to teach him my Half Jiggle, which I did, and which he promptly put in his book without credit to me.
To quote him, he says: "The arc of the right hand was the creation of Richard Kaufman. In the Jig, I have added the Teeterboard (me:
= the side squaring action) and angled starting position, and like Kaufman, opted for less jiggles and more of a smooth series of squaring actions"
Gary points out his contributions, which I think anyone with a basic understanding of the pass would think of. I think he should've put more thoughts on this, get permissions .. etc, anyways ...
Speaking of the Midnight shift, those who want to see Draun doing it, can visit this page: http://stevedraun.com/movies.htm
Bill Malone had an interesting way of doing the move in Trapdoor mag, called Graveyard Fan. Its in the same issue that contains Joel Given's pass.
It takes alot of work to make it seem like your not working at all.
