Return of the Bag:
Return of the Bag is a sequel to the best selling; highly acclaimed Attack of the Bag. On this volume Craig Petty explores more uses of the coin bag and presents effects that you would have never thought were possible. Included on this DVD is the full explanation of ESimPossible, the mentalism routine which has been an underground sensation since its creation. If you want to perform visually stunning coin magic that has been designed for use in the real world then check this out:
Stuck is a version of the Doc Eason’s Anniversary Waltz using coins, this routine is a real worker. Two signed coins become one with all the magic happening in the spectator’s own hand.
Window Shopper where a card Through Window meets the coin bag. Three coins are thrown against a clear mesh bag and one by one penetrate visibly through the solid mesh front. This one is pure eye candy.
Tight Fisted is the ultimate coins across for the real world performer. Three coins are held in your closed fist and one by one they travel into a bag which has been left on the table from the beginning. Your fist remains tightly closed throughout the performance till the end at which point you open your hand to reveal the climax.
Overdrawn where a performance piece which has been brilliantly routined over hundreds of performances. Four coins travel from a brass box into a small bag one by one until all four coins have magically journeyed across.
ESimPossible where Craig has taught a select few performers this routine and without fail it goes straight into their working repertoire. It’s a version of Al Koran’s Medallion designed for table hopping performances. The effect on the audience is always the same, they can’t believe their eyes – This is one you WILL use.
Currency Converter is a wild coins routine on steroids. Three un-gimmicked coins change into three completely different un-gimmicked coins and then change back again. The best part is the coins can be examined at every stage of the routine and the whole effect looks amazing.
Championship Coins where coins through table turned on its head. Three coins penetrate up through a table one by one. This routine is easy to do, looks great and is really, really commercial.
Prison Break is the most visual coins across routine you will ever see. By combining two well known principles Craig has created a routine that will make you want to grab your coins and start performing straight away.
Count Down is where Craig’s commercial coins through table. 3 coins penetrate a solid table with the final coin penetrating in slow motion. This has to be seen to be believed.
Note: Coin Bag not included. Coin bag seen in this DVD is available with Attack Of The Bag DVD.
Master Coin Routine:
Chris Priest first saw David Roth’s excellent coins across routine some 15 years ago; this was the inspiration for his Master Coin Routine.
Many top magicians have asked Chris to teach them this award winning routine, Chris always declined, until now, the wait is over! This is Chris’s signature routine from his professional repertoire.
The routine starts by producing four silver dollars from the air, the last one appears on the spectators hand, coins travel fast, in slow motion, under impossible conditions from on hand to the other, the last one leaving your audience with their jaws wide open.
Then comes an explanation using only one coin, this coin then vanishes, appears, falls up and lands on the back of a spectators hand, disappears and then appears on an outstretched spectators hand, melts through your trouser pockets, and vanishes right in front of their eyes! Jam packed with visual mind boggling magic the routine grows to an awesome climax your audience will talk about for along time to come.
This DVD features live performances of Chris performing the Master Coin Routine for a real audience, so you can witness the real reactions from the routine. Everything is here, the performance, the presentation, with detailed teaching instructions and psychology involved, its magical masterpiece you will love performing. Learn this and you will have an outstanding piece of magic that will last you a lifetime.
When a top magician shares his number 1 set its worth listening, when it’s Chris Priest it’s an absolute must. This is one of my favourite routines in all of magic; I can’t believe he is sharing this!
David Penn. British Champion of illusion.
An amazing, entertaining, expertly crafted routine, the construction, presentation of this routine is second to none,
The Master Coin Routine is solidly crafted and audience tested; I know, I’ve seen the reactions time after time. I never thought Chris would give this away.
