I'm starting to move onto the invisible thread routines. Was searching the products but there are so many its hard to filter out. Which ones are most visual and fascinating to the general audience ( not close ups). And yeah.. i wouldnt prefer levitations :oops:

Haunted decks

The loops can also come in very handy in many situations for much more than levitations

Most of the really "visual" stuff tends to be levitations. I'd say the most visual non-levitations you can do are haunted packs, rolling pens, knocking over objects, etc. My favorite resource for what you are looking for would probably be Danny Garcia's volume of the Guerrilla Guide to loops. He has a great philosophy towards loops and even the levitation effects taught on that DVD the levitation is so brief that your audience will question whether what they saw really happened or if it was just a trick of the mind. If you are more of a "mentalist" performer this is really how you ought to work with thread(IMHO). He also teaches an excellent PK touch routine.

I second this. Although it's a levitation (which isn't what you're looking for), the technique he uses to animate can be used for non levitation effects as well. This (then video) was my first experience with IT and to this day it's still my favorite handling.
