Carl Cloutier has won just about every major close-up magic competition in the world, including the 1994 FISM World Championship in Japan. On this video he performs and explains some of the routines that have garnered him a worldwide reputation. His trademark style is strong and very visual magic that leaves his audiences astounded and laughing. Most of the routines are for formal close-up situations but are also suitable for stage. He originally created them for his many TV spots on Canadian television.
Routines performed and explained include:
►Sports Illustrated: Miniature sports balls vanish, appear and transform from a rubber ball to a golf ball, soccer ball and finally into a miniature basketball.
►Smoker's Delight: A funny and magical routine using cigarettes that is filled with flash appearances and vanishes, structured around a trip through customs.
►Cup and Balls: An extremely visual routine for the miniature cup and balls -- the cup appears, the balls appear, vanish, change color, grow and much more.
►Pencil Through Coin: One of the cleanest methods for accomplishing this classic effect. Borrow a coin, insert the pencil through the center of the coin, remove it and hand the restored coin back.
►Money Madness: Two borrowed ten-dollar bills fuse into a twenty. A check is now used to produce coins and after the shower of coins the check changes into the original tens.
►Simple Battery: Your deck of cards doesn’t work so you remove a dead battery from it and replace it with a new one.
►Candy Cards: A giant contact lens is removed and replaced in your eye. You introduce a deck with different backs but with all the faces the same. A Lifesaver back is selected, and a roll of lifesavers are produced. Five cards are selected, and the backs match the roll of candy. Then you produce a chocolate bar and magically reassemble the candy into its original wrapper.
►To Bounce Or Not To Bounce: A quick routine for the bounce, no bounce balls.
In teaching these routines Carl also tips the many Topit and Sleeving techniques he uses to vanish, produce, conceal and switch small objects. You will also learn about loading, unloading, and the choreography of Sleeving and Toppiting.
