Commercial Strolling Routines with and without a Table Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 3rd, 2012
Michael Eaton covers a number of familiar themes with props common to the strolling or table-hopping magician, in this 3 hrs, 12 mins lecture. Moderated by Nathan Kranzo.6 of 6 magicians found this helpful.
Eaton covers the following:
1. Orlando Opener An elegant 3 coin production-vanish-production routine that can be done standing, or, for more surprises, with a table. Intermediate to advanced coin-work-3 coins and shell. Very magical-looking sequence. Eaton plays this pretty straight-no comedy show, here-the coins blinking in and out of sight, a la 3-fly, is the main focus.
2. Coins from Purse--Very straightforward production of 3 coins from purse-frame. What makes this unique is production of 3rd coin, which utilizes well-known technique, but in context of purse-frame.
3. Shot-PurseVery clean vanish and production of a single coin in and from a purse-frame.
4. Ricochet VanishTechnique for vanishing single coin while seated at table. Coin is legitimately tossed down to table-top, spectators see and hear it land; coin instantly vanishes.
5. Orlando Magic Sponge Ball RoutineStandard yet entertaining S.B. routine with basketball theme.
6. Using Flash Paper During Vanishes/ReproductionsDiscussion on bringing flash to tricks such as Ring-Thing and flash-vanishing a Sharpie after use.
7. Crazy Mans HandcuffsOffers a technique for instantly executing the move at spectators command. Gives a quick demo of standard handling, as well.
8. Broken and Restored Rubber-band TranspoIntegration of Snapped (H. Lorayne) into transposition of 2 rubber-bands. Spectator chooses rubber-band, holds in closed fist. Performer breaks remaining rubber-band. Performer then restores rubber-band, spectator opens hand to find broken band.
9. Card on CeilingEatons method is similar to Ammars, but offers very clever alternative to commonly used Sucrets box. Eatons holdout is limited to 1 gimmick, but saves on pocket-space and allows for simplified handling (no palming of gimmick). Love this idea.
10. Coin and Sharpie RoutineMulti-phase single coin and Sharpie routine a la Rick Merrill. A coin and Sharpie alternately vanish and reappear in surprising and visually stunning ways.
11. Card Routine for CouplesA multi-effect routine encompassing Ambitious Card, Card to Pocket and Anniversary Waltz. Nothing new here, just the collapsing of the 3 well-known plots into a single routine. No explanation given (looks like it just got lost in the shuffle) but as theres no new moves here, it will be self-explanatory for many intermediate card-workers.
12. The GatheringA Collectors routine where 4 cards are selected, the first 3 change into the same value as the 4th, then the original 3 selections are found sandwiched between the 4 transformed selections. For the finale, the 3 selections vanish from the packet.
13. 2-Card TranspoVisual quickie. Eaton displays a card, puts it in his pocket, then shows a second card, which instantly transforms into first selection. Finally, the second card is withdrawn from pocket.
14. Drop NCoin through glass table trick. This is amazingly magical-looking. While seated at glass table, coin is displayed at fingertips. Other hand is held underneath table to catch coin. Coin is thrown down to table-top; audience sees and hears as coin hits and penetrates table. Coin is caught in waiting hand and can be immediately handed out for inspection. You can see this demoed, as it is also sold as a separate DVD. Angley but beautiful, would look great on television or in a promo video.
15. Coins thru Table3 coins thru opaque table-top routine. Very clean looking. Final coin has some angle issuesbest for a single spectator sitting acrossbut looks very magical.
16. Coin Splita single coin spun on table-top is suddenly snapped into two coins. Sharp and pretty.
17. Pretty FlyVery beautiful 3-Fly routine (at the fingertips, 3 coin transposition), using techniques and technology previously explained in earlier routines.
Overall this was a very entertaining 3 hour lecture, with great value for the money. Eatons magic is full of strong, commercial routines. His coin magic perhaps stands out the most, and is very beautiful, very magical. Intermediate to advanced. Eaton makes prodigious use of the shell, clipping and sleeving, to great effect. He shares ideas from lecture notes on vanishing a stack of coins, appearing ketchup bottle, a sponge ball steal and stealing personal items in plain view for later production. Nathan Kranzo is charming as hosteasy-going and funny. He prompts with questions and informed commentsvery good in this role.

worst lecture I've seen Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 13th, 2012
To be honest there was material that I liked, it just wasn't worth $30 and I took a star off because Nathan Kranzo (host) could not stop interupting. I was beginning to wonder if this was Nathan's lecture or Mr. Eaton (VERY annoying). Bottomline....unless your a big coin guy looking for handling tips you'll likely feel ripped off and even then there was nothing terribly groundbreaking. Way too much material many people already know...and detailed descriptions of beginner moves. I felt like half of the time was taken up by mindless chatter (and none of it funny) usually initiated by Nathan.1 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
Great Lecture- ANNOYING and RUDE KRANZO!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 15th, 2013
This lecture is great and the material taught is very usable material. Some of it will definitely take some practice to get it looking as good as Michael Eaton does, but it would be worth putting in the work. However, NATHAN KRANZO continually interrupts Mr. Eaton and will not shut up! He will ask a question, and before Michael can answer, NATHAN is already interrupting and asking another question. Some other magicians that I have talked to have said the same thing about this lecture. Please Penguin, do NOT have NATHAN KRANZO host anymore of these lectures!!!
AMAZING!! Report this review

I loved this lecture. He taught so many things ranging from coins to cards to sponge balls. If you are a close up walk around magician then these are the things for you. None of it was all too difficult, but I don't think this is for the beginner coin magicians out there. A lot of people are complaining about how he talked a lot and the host interrupted too much. I didn't mind it at all, and thought a lot of the stuff was quite funny. I absolutely loved this lecture and will use so much of this stuff in my walk around routines.
Eaton 5 Stars - Host minus 5 stars Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 5th, 2013
Eaton gave a good lecture. Not just coins either. The host, Kranzo, was amazingly annoying. He interrupted and talked over Eaton - not just once in a while but continually. When Eaton started to explain something Kranzo would interrupt with either an adolecent joke, mindless babbling or his own opinion. Even Eaton started showing his annoyance but Kranzo wasn't able to notice. I'd like it if Penguin started listing the host along with the upcoming Lecturer. Hadn't seen a need for that extra info until Kranzo got hold of the host mic. Really got a chance to exercise my patience muscles with this lecture. Eaton was good. Kranzo, please don't host any more lectures.

This alone made the monthly subscription worthwhile. Fantastic coin work with some great and very unique subtleties! Super good tips on anyone doing a roving act in a crowd or dinner table situation. It was a good clear instruction while being funny and entertaining to watch at the same time.
