Remember that video I was talking about a couple of posts back?
Well, the wait is over (were you really waiting? 😛 )
But before I stick it up here, a little background info on the effect itself:
7 years ago I was inspired by Copperfield’s beautiful and elegant ace assembly routine. It was the trick that made me stand up and declare that I would become a magician. I then set out to learn that very ace assembly.
After 1 year of researching and learning magic, I was performing Copperfield’s version of it – exactly. After a while, I sat down and thought about how morally incorrect it was of me to copy Copperfield’s routine.
Where was the originality?
So, with inspiration from his routine, I set out to create my own ace assembly routine. I wanted to create a routine that carried the dramatic weight that Copperfield’s had.
The creation of this effect took slightly more than 2 years.
Pretty long for a card trick 😉
But this is the product of many hours of brain storming and practicing.
I dedicate this to my grand aunty, Amati Nur, my biggest fan 🙂
I know it’s not as great as Copperfield’s, nor was it intended to be, but at least it’s original and it’s mine 🙂
I sincerely hope that I’ve achieved what I set out to do.
And I sincerely hope that I will inspire people; like how Copperfield inspired me all those years ago.
On a side note, I closed my last show at The Mall, with this routine and it went down so well (Alhamdulillah) that the media team recording the show replayed the footage of the routine a second time.
Hope you all enjoy it!
And don’t feel shy to let me know what you really think of it, it’s the only way I can improve 🙂
Salaams and stay safe everyone!
P.S. A major major thank you goes out to Metis Wong Kuan Lee for helping me shoot the video and for putting up with my perfectionism. That video took about 17 takes altogether – all because I wasn’t happy 😛 Thank you so much bro! You are so patient with me, I owe you big time buddy!
P.P.S. Another major major major thank you goes to the one and only AZ-MAN, for without his kind loaning of his camera, all these videos would probably not be on Youtube! Muchas gracias eh big guy? YOU DA MAN! 😉
