As part of our promotion for Luminato, we taped a video piece for the press conference. Here is the link to the video clip:
I started this separate post because the sequence I perform is basically the one that I described in the Ross Bertram issue of Genii (Vol. 66, No. 3, March 2003, page 61.)
I made some slight modifications simply because I was blindfolded with duct tape and had to emphasize other points in the delivery. For those, however, who want to see what the Bertram move looks like, the clip should give you a good idea.
Interestingly, this was shot very quickly and the tape from the cameras used in the shoot handed over to the editor to assemble. When he assembled the clip, he cut out the "multiple shift" used to control the cards. (The editor knows nothing about magic.) Evidently he thought that the "multiple shift" sequence was not germane to the story.
Much to his surprise, I asked him to include it so that Genii Forum members interested in this trick could see how the "multiple shift" was used in it. (I make reference to the shift in the Genii article.)
Kind of weird, I know, but there you have it.
I should also mention for those who are interested in Ross Bertram that, pursuant to Richard's request, I am preparing a special lecture about Ross' coin magic for the Genii Bash in October. I will be performing and explaining the real work on many of Ross' most cherished creations. Hope to also see you there.
