Coin Flurry and Jumbo Production Sensory Control by Bob Elliott
The Coin Flurry is a sequence of vanishes and productions put together in a magical way the same way musicians improvise music. Sometimes you make it longer, sometimes you make it shorter, but the important thing is to have a good way to get into it and a good way to come out of it. This isn’t one of those knuckle-busting sequences. It’s a practical and powerfully structured workhorse.
The Jumbo coin ending, inspired by David Roth, is the perfect end to any Coin Flurry.
I wish you could’ve seen Bob Elliott perform Sensory Control. It used to be one of his favorite effects and in his hands it wasn’t the vanish of a Jumbo Coin; it was about genuinely affecting the real time perceptions of a person. Bob was a people person and this effect was an excuse for Bob to break into someone’s personal space so he can experience the effect on a deeper level.
The beautiful part is how perfectly the concept and procedures make the vanish of a Jumbo Coin work without any weird body turns, without sleeves or any devices other than an understanding of how to turn a ‘move’ into an interactive human experience!
Of course you know I’m going to review all that with SuperPractice close-up shots as well as the deeper thinking about why it all works the way it does in the Real Secrets segment.
