Zach Muller is going viral with this wonderfully geeky card manipulation. Wow. There’s a loopback to Contact Juggling here, Zach credits his inspiration for ‘Magnetic Cards’ concept as’Magnetic Batons’ and links to Yuta & Okotanpe performing at Heso Revolutiion 2012.
On his website Okotanpe gives credit to the pioneer of magnetic baton, the wonderful French Contact Juggler Pich, who you can see performing with Magnetic Batons here.
Zach, recently shot a Japanese credit card commercial.
“Glas won master film maker Bert Haanstra a well-deserved Academy Award for Best Short Documentary in 1959. The film contrasts the production of hand made crystal from the Royal Leerdam Glass Factory with automated bottle making machines in the Netherlands. An industrial film with a bebop heart, its lyrical use of light and sound still looks and sounds fabulous, nearly 60 years after it was made.”
