Paper Cuts Volume 3 by Armando Lucero
What is Paper Cuts?
The Paper Cuts video series is not the Workshop, which is an online or in-person comprehensive study of magic and science beyond the scope of this exordium. However, it is a peek at Armando's way of composing to serve as a primer before the Workshop; like a glance through a window into a cabin of a large ship upon the ocean. But a notable glance nonetheless.
It is an exhibition of ubiquitous classical material purposely tailored for a modern discerning audience. Being as accessible historical published works, this is, therefore, an opportunity to learn within the safety of what is familiar.
What kind of material is taught on this project?
Paper Cuts, as the name suggests, is composed of entirely card magic. Each DVD features a series of routines designed for real world work and performance. As well, each effect has an accompanying explanation and discussion. In the discussions, the effects are explained from a technical, theatrical, and philosophical point of view. There is also great care taken with each routine to teach an important lesson about performance, and how to apply those techniques and lessons to other routines in your show.
How is Paper Cuts related to the Coin Menagerie and Pasteboard Devices Workshops that Armando Lucero offers privately?
Paper Cuts is a completely different workshop and shares no effects or techniques in common with these other private workshops. The philosophy, theatrical technique, and advice is, however, consistent with all workshops that Armando teaches, including Paper Cuts.
