This is a video of a something called a quadruple snap change; one of the hardest sleight-of-hand moves I can do well enough to actually use in live performance. It’s also a rare anomaly in the world of magic; a move that actually relies on speed to be deceptive. It happens in less than a tenth of a second, and is fast enough to beat even a 25-frames-per-second video camera.
(50 frames per second would totally screw it though.)
We filmed this piece of video back in April last year when making the Comedy Festival promo reel, but never ended up using it in the final version. I though it was a shame to waste though, so uploaded it to the YouTube Channel a few months back.
It’s only short, but I frigging love how it looks.
