Seven distinguished Harvard University professors and faculty members give their parting words of advice to the graduating class.
Dean Evelynn Hammonds
Produced with Max Esposito for the Harvard Gazette.
This video includes routines that were presented at David's only 2018 lecture. Seven fantastic card routines as well as an innovative new presentation of the venerable Hot Rod!
• Chicago Aces - An extremely clean method to allow the spectator to find the four Aces from a shuffled deck.
• The Hypnotist - Dave's clever and funny color changing deck routine right out of his book Williamson's Wonders.
• Vernon's Varient Varient - Dave shows how he adds a final twist to this fantastic little 4 card trick. He also demonstrates it's scalability and how he adapted it to the stage.
• The Twins & Steve - Dave's take on Brother John Hammond's classic story trick.
• Cardist Try - Dave's in-the-hands fancy ace production routine.
• Hotter Rod - A fun and unusual Hot Rod presentation that leaves them with photographic evidence!
• Spellier & Smellier - Dave's re-worked version of his popular "He who Spelt it, Dealt it" from Williamson's Wonders.
• 4 x 5 - Several stunning changes add up to a minor miracle.
If you couldn't be at Dave's lecture, this is the next best thing!
THIS IS A PUBLIC MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE
A dischevelled weakling in a gloomy basement plays a videogame for several days consecutively, sustained by junk food & motivated by simplistic a/v rewards. The film is intended as an illustration of a portion of the lecture "Design Reboot" delivered by noted videogame creator Mr. Jonathan Blow, whose voice can be heard. The film includes 8-bit Elizabethan "chiptune" music by the Super Madrigal Brothers as well as sound effects by composer Todd Mazierski.
Warnings: The film clip, brief as it is, runs the serious risk of misrepresenting the depth and breadth of Mr. Jonathan Blow's thoughts on this subject. We encourage you to listen to the lecture in its entirety, it is now available online for absolutely free at urls like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0kup_anLeU
Production notes: DESIGN REBOOT HD began as a series of slides intending to carve out a generic fantasy videogame aesthetic, these slides became the clip above which was first shown at a DIY videogame event in Toronto in spring 2008. The aesthetic of this clip helped lay a foundation for Sword & Sworcery, which began a year a later. The concept and design of Sword & Sworcery were intended to harness the unique expressive power of videogames to create something worthwhile and heartfelt.
In late 2015, Patrick Kun prepared a limited amount these notes for his lecture in South Korea. An 8GB credit card style flash drive that is jammed packed with 5 brand new materials that have never been shared before.
Only 30 copies will be available. All signed and numbered.
With Singularity, you will be able to perform this streamlined handling with any borrow deck. It's completely impromptu and can be performed at a moment's notice.
2. 4 to 1 Transpo
A visual transposition of 4 Kings and the selection that happens right under the spectator's hand. The routine is completely impromptu and can be done with the card signed.
3. Mirage Change
A knacky one-handed double color change that allows you to change both cards at once. Perfect for any card revelation routine.
4. Modern Biddle
This is Patrick's modern take on the classic Biddle trick. Imagine the ability to erase their selected card from their borrow phone and make their card reappeared inside of the deck that you have never touched from the beginning. A super strong practical effect that leaves them with an impossible photo that they can remember by.
5. Reflex Ring Vanish
A raven-like type vanish that you can do anytime without any gimmick. This vanish also allows you to change a ring to any other small object.
Notes on Territory is a performance lecture and installation made in collaboration with Damon Locks and Giau Truong that considers prison architecture and the body. Through lecture, dance, and a reading room, Territory is a space for probing the dual inquiries: What is the prison and Where are its holes? This work has been developed with generous support from Chicago Dancemakers Forum, Pivot Arts, the University of Michigan Daring Dances Residency Program, Velocity Dance Center, Whitman College Spring Studio Series, the Headlands Center for the Arts, and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
From the creator of CoinONE and CoinTWO comes THE RICE PAPERS. Teaser video for NEW DVD from the mind and hands of Homer Liwag. A DVD version of his original RICE PAPERS lecture notes, taught in Homer's signature instruction style.
A review of Before Ever After, a great book featuring really interesting Disney internal studio lecture notes published last year.
This is my first video like this and I plan to do more animation book reviews so let me know what you like or don't like about this one. Hope you enjoy it!
