WMF Xavier Perret
What do you get when you have a guy who wants to be a film school graduate and he knows a bunch of magic tricks? Someone who humbly plasters his own name all over! Having said that, does he actually claim intellectual ownership to the lapping techniques, which are not even well done? Lacking time misdirection, telegraphing the moves needlessly and having this aura of "I don't belong here"?
Of course there is the exposure aspect, teaching material that is not his. I've gone over this many times. Briefly: emulating people who taught you magic and that you adore, by teaching material that is not yours will not get you the same amount of adoration. But his videos are well made. Props for that. Aside from that: Asshole!
