As magicians, we are constantly innovating.
Many of us have half-finished ideas, concepts, sleights and tricks that we've forgotten. Some of these we re-discover and they grow into some of our favourites.
This is Dragonfly.
It's a fun little swivel clip / hand to hand transfer. I never had a use for it, or a name. It wasn't until we were shooting our newest project with Ollie Mealing that I had the idea of making it into a control.
I came up with a method that resembled something Dan & Dave Buck put out in their 2011 release, If an octopus could palm. In recent conversations with Dan Buck, I learned they have a similar technique used in a routine called "Seduction". This was published in their 2010 lecture notes.
As Black Club members, I am releasing this exclusively to you at no cost. I believe magic should be shared and as a thank-you for your continued support and loyalty with Ellusionist, I invite you to step inside Dragonfly. Learn it, Practice it, and see where you can take it.
Until next time, start a riot.
This control is absolutely amazing! I actually started using it the day I got it, the move is that easy. I turned this control in to a fourth phase of Card to Pocket, and it gets some amazing reactions!
Just joined the Black Club today!!! It's awesome that we have some clever utility moves like this free to the club members. I think I'm gonna use it in my AC routine or maybe Card in the Hand.
My new favorite control. Thank you Mr. McKinnon.
