Gas Blues Got You Down? Welcome to Magic MetaCamp!

Here’s a candid photo of my friend Lee Asher last year at camp. As it turns out, he wasn’t in on EVERY prank after all….

Lee Asher - looks like he can be fooled after all.

It’s summer time, and as many readers already know, that means it’s time for camp. The Sorcerer’s Safari summer camp, about an hour north of Toronto, remains hands down the best program for kids who want serious magic education and a real summer camp experience at the same time. If you don’t know about Magic Mike and his world renowned camp, check it out now.

Let’s get down to business

While I love the classes, activities and shows we put on at Sorcerer’s Safari, I have to say my favorite activity at camp is Swim Time. I hang out under a shady tree while the more socially adjusted kids splash each other. Some kids swim. Others get to the practice of practice. Swim time is when the ‘real work’ goes down.

Campers bring their copies of Erdnase out (got to love it!) and we talk about the stuff that real sleight of hand is made of.

So for those of you who are too old to be campers (not sure I buy that premise), this is your lucky month. Post your questions about card magic, technique and the performance of sleight of hand – I’ll read all your comments, and devote blog posts to answering as many of your fascinating questions as I can.

Make ’em concise, good and thoughtful. That way, everyone will want to read the answer to your question!

With Thanks,

Aaron

Watch The Gravity Half Pass Video!

In the 6 years since the publication of the Gravity Half Pass in The Paper Engine, many workers have added the sleight to their repertoires. Further, I’ve met guys who said their own ability with the move improved greatly after watching me do the sleight in person.

After all, when you’re in the midst of serious sleight of hand study, and can be very helpful to actually see the move in action.

If you have The Paper Engine, these short clips will help you practice. With a little patience, you can achieve similar results. This sleight can be immediate, soft and all but angle proof. It looks like real magic.

Now check it out from the front!

Now that you’ve had a chance to see the move, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Does this demonstration give you a feel for how the move should really look? Drop a comment and let me know!

With Thanks,

Aaron
