Today I'm going to put Sleight of Hand magic to the ultimate test! I shot a few sleight of hand card tricks in 120 frames per second to see if, despite my skill, you could see how the card trick was done. Probably a terrible idea..

this is a great example of being cynical or a dreamer..
The idea of amazement in things that could never be real shapes a mind for growth. Then let that person figure out if they want to be a cynic or a dreamer.
There is really no reason for magicians to be secretive anymore. Even if you had not done this video I could find out how they were done with a few minutes of Google searching. Actually, I find that knowing how it is done allows me to appreciate the skill and hard work that goes into this a lot more.
That's so awesome! Those skills are super impressive. And we all know magic's not "real". If it was possible to do card tricks without sleight of hand then there'd be no reason to be impressed. The beauty of magic is not that cards can appear from nothing, it's that you can make it *look* as though it appears from nothing, and that takes years of practice. And you know what, seeing it in slo-mo just makes me even more impressed when you can see how it's done. Big illusions, on the other hand, feel like cheating when you work out how it's done.
i allways wanted to do stuff like these but my fingers are not fat they are thin also when ever i close my palm and theres a card behind my hand you can see through the fingers cause the have somesort of a hole between each finger its a fucking mess
I know how you do some of these... still amazed that you can actualy do it... knowing how its done just make it better cause I just know that I can't do it... or I could but wont do the effort to do it!
Hope you read this. One thing I've learned from the Penn and Teller Fool Us show is that they love the performance of a trick as much or more than understanding how it's done. I feel like wanting to figure a trick out gets in the way of the enjoyment of just watching it. Nobody is staring at a pianist player at .2x speed replay going "Ah ha! I see he makes notes when he pushes the white and black things! Well, I can't enjoy this any more now that Ive figured THAT out..."
I think you should slow down your tricks more, but more for you. As you noted several times throughout, there are things you could do better going forward. Slowing down your tricks shows you where to improve and allows you a way to improve. Might not be the perfect way to improve, but it could work.
Dude as someone who used to do magic and only recently found your channel, some of these look fucking beautiful. While trying not to sound like r/iamverysmart, I have to say that even knowing how all these are done, I absolutely loved watching the intro clip over and over again.
9:45. One frame (@60fps presumably) is 0.166666667 seconds or [100/60] seconds, and a deck of cards is 2.5" across. So this card traveled 1.25" in [100/60]s or 75inch/s which is 4.26mph (6.857kph) which is less impressive than I thought it would be when I started this comment.
That being slowed down now gives you more to work on being faster then the lens. It will only make you better and work harder to be perfect. Couple of these tricks you did was done perfect. Great video.
I mean... most of the tricks are flawless by 1 - 3 frames... you do edit your videos... so... what I would do is just edit out those 3 frames to make it look as "magical" as it really is! Don't get me wrong, I think that this helps out a lot of people trying to learn tricks... but... it also takes away the magic, even though I love this and I'll try now to do a great slide of hand like you did on the video... I would rather not know or figure it out by my self rather beeing able to crumble the magic just by pressing settings-speed-0.25

10. “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost (1874-1963)
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
Meaning of the Poem.
This poem deals with that big noble question of “How to make a difference in the world?” On first reading, it tells us that the choice one makes really does matter, ending: “I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference.”
