Description originale du contenu du DVD
RORY’S RISE – Alan’s take on the legendary ‘Raise Rise’ by Ray Kosby! A signed selection is left sticking out near the bottom of the deck. With just a shake, and in FULL VIEW, the out jogged card disappears back into the deck and pops back out near the top. Another shake and that signed selection is on top! Alan teaches you how to make the ingenious (and ridiculously simple) gimmick to make this miracle all but self working!
KEY THING – A borrowed ring… a borrowed key… and yet, impossibly, you are able to squeeze the head of the key through the clearly too small opening of the ring! Super easy to do – looks like a miracle.
FRIES WITH THAT – The cleanest McDonalds Aces you’ve ever seen. Four Aces are lost in four packets. One by one those Aces vanish, only to reappear grouped together in the final packet. Then (and this is where it gets good), that packet is INSTANTLY re-spread to show the Aces have gone again. Where? The other cards are spread across the table and the Aces are back (and face up!). Alan will teach you how to make the sneaky gimmick that makes this trick so fooling. It’s a STUNNER!
BUD’S BOTTLE – Ready for an impromptu signed coin in bottle? How about with a borrowed coin and borrowed bottle! An impromptu masterpiece. This is CLASS!
STATIC – A selected card sits atop the deck. You rub your forearm (to get some ‘static’), and then hover your fingers over the deck. Utterly impossibly that chosen card POPS straight off the deck and adheres to your fingers. It then slowly sinks back onto the other cards. You can even get your spectator to hold THEIR fingers over the deck and watch the selection shoot up as if magnetized. Can be performed impromptu, as Alan teaches you how to make the brilliant gimmick on the fly. Works with ANY deck. Truly shocking visual magic with cards!
SHARPIE BEND – A Sharpie held at the fingertips visibly softens in the center and slowly bends into a right angle. You uncap the strange looking pen and hand it out to be examined (cos it can be!). Learn how to make this fun, visual gimmick in seconds at home!
ACES OUT – A self working, mental miracle. You remove the four Aces from the deck and have your spectators decide on one. When they check the packet of aces, the one they named is GONE! Where? The deck is spread and it’s the only face up card in the center of the spread. Oh, and when the spread is reversed ALL THE CARDS ARE BLANK!
BE SAFE – You show the audience your lighter with the regulation ‘NO UNDER 18’s’ sticker glued on. Using your thumbnail under the sticker you demonstrate how a quick snap to the side can actually cleanly remove that warning label. Not a good thing right? So, right in front of their eyes, you throw the sticker at the lighter… and it RE-ADHERES! You hand them the lighter to examine (because you CAN!).
