The confined cubes effect was alright.

Double Back - first and foremost, your camera angle was all wrong for an effect like this. Try shooting from a higher angle, perhaps. Some of your moves are spotted at this angle, which diminishes the effect.

Also, your handling is highly suspicious when you place the kings face to face. You move to cover nearly everything, rather quickly (which is jarring in comparison to the slow, deliberate displays of the 5's). Also, the nature of things almost forces the unusual handling of the kings. There's a far easier method to displaying the cards. PM me if you're interested.

Most of the trouble is down to the angle of the camera. A reshoot will cover 95% of the flashes you had here. Nice work.
