Video instructions are great particularly when it comes to timing, pacing or when the moves become difficult. However, video is lacking in many ways. If you do not get a healthy does of reading your development as magician will suffer. Our suggestion is to at least spend as much time reading as watching videos. You should have no problem finding enough reading in the form of great ebooks here at the Lybrary.

A freely chosen card levitates on top of the deck. Then another card is passed under the levitating card to prove that there is no connection at all, you can look through and see that it is in the air.
Please note that the explanation video has no verbal explanation. It includes a couple of inserted lines of text, and the rest is purely a visual explanation.
