Tricks and routines discussed in the course include:
Flip fly - Will’s first foray into the Three-Fly plot, this routine uses a less common gaff in an unusual way.
Coin 0.5 - Will’s current favourite handling of three fly doesn’t use three coins or feature several moments normally seen in the routine… it does however feature some stunning visual magic and detailed thinking on the plot! Will will explain how he came to this preferred sequence and teach the entire routine in fine detail.
Bouncing Shadows - This is Will’s handling of shadow coins, one of the most magical coin tricks there is. Will has featured this trick on numerous TV appearances and will teach all the subtleties that he has discovered in over a decade’s work.
Impromptu Shadows - Bouncing Shadows is Will’s preferred Shadow Coins sequence, but sometimes you will find yourself without the ‘certain something’ needed to perform the routine. For those occasions Impromptu Shadows will ensure that you are still able to performa a beautiful, deceptive piece of magic.
