A Note From Daniel Madison...
Angle Z has been in my repertoire since I started performing tricks in 1999. The Angle Z principal was first published in a PDF book I released in 2006 and it took no more than a paragraph to both describe and explain, and at the time, I saw the effect as no more than a ‘filler’ for the book. The idea went unnoticed.
In 2007, once again, I used the effect as a ‘filler’ for a DVD project. Both the performance and explanation combined lasted no more than 10 minutes. However, this time, the effect did not go unnoticed.
Since then, Angle Z has become something of a signature effect of mine which has become synonymous with my name. Every magician I meet has their own take on the idea, each as powerful as the last and in 2013 I was overwhelmed to announce that it would be a part of a David Blaine TV special. Blaine feels strongly about the effect.
This DVD is what Angle Z should have been from the start. It is over an hour in explanation and I have left no stone unturned. The explanation is intricate in both technique and psychology, I have included alternate performances and some of the variations from close friends. Forgive me for not giving Angle Zero the honor it deserves from the beginning. I am Daniel Madison. This is Angle Z.
INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT "THE TORN CORNER CARD TRICK David Blaine performed "the torn corner card trick" or Angle Z for celebrities Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde in his special for ABC called ‘Real or Magic’. The effect is performed by a who's who in magic.... from Dan White (Discovery’s ‘The Supernaturalist’) to Calen Morelli (Magic Consultant to David Copperfield). We hear Dynamo will be featuring it soon.
This is an excellent trick, but the download is not worth $30.
The effect is, undoubtedly, a very powerful one and I can certainly recommend learning and performing it. But I do not believe that the download is worth the price, since the method is quite evident, and the (admittedly very good) added tips Daniel Madison gives are not worth $30 in my opinion.
If you have not already thought of the method, or if you want to improve your performance, this is certainly recommendable.
Excellent trick! Simple yet so powerful, it is bound to create great reactions. The explanations are very direct and detailed. I have been performing this quite often.
I personally don't understand the other reviews, I can't believe they are even real! Daniel Maddison is a very talented magician and Ellusionist is probably one of the best magic shops there is, but $30 for this??? Seriously, I spotted the entire method from the trailer, 90mins explanation is not required and I truly believe tricks like this are what put beginners off magic and are far too expensive for what they are, for the record I am a beginner I know roughly 5 tricks and struggle to do a double lift. I would advice no one to pay $30 for this trick but DO NOT hold my opinion of this trick against Ellusionist or Daniel Maddison. But save your money for a good book.
beautiful piece of art work
I've been performing Angle Z for quite a while, and it's one of those effects that are extremely simple to do, but mind blowing. If you are a beginner and want an incredible effect, this is for you. If you're a pro and want a ridiculously amazing effect, this is for you.
I would highly recommend this to anyone learning magic. Beginner or Expert!
This trick has such good visuals and it gets the best reactions every time.
I have lost count how many groups of people i've done this trick for. You can do this trick almost completely surrounded and not give away how it's done.
I have seen the spectator's be completely mind boggled by this trick. The day i received it, i performed the trick to one of my brother's friends. That was a year a go. Still to this day every time i see him, he goes into his wallet pulls out the card i gave him and shows everyone we are with and asks how i do it...
This trick is very easy to learn and fun to perform. I would say this needs to be apart of your magic - Joe Smith
I figured out how this trick was done prior to purchasing it, however it was still worth buying. DM just goes into so much detail about the subtleties of the trick that make it so powerful.
This is probably one of the best tricks you can do with cards. It feels like real magic! It's so simple that you can focus more on your patter than anything else. I've been doing this for a while and I always get great reactions. This is one of those tricks you can be completely creative with. The download is also great because it fuels you with different ideas. Nothing to think about with this one. Just get it.
This is an A-plus trick. I've been doing magic seriously for about 7 months now and after learning countless tricks this is my closer. The set up is quick and with some practice you'll be able to do it perfectly in a crowded room. Like all the greatest tricks its deviously simple and you will be able to perform it within minutes after watching. Madison teaches this trick super well and teaches some alternative handlings. The better your preforming skills the better this trick will be.
I was unsure of the method when I first got this, thinking "how is this going to fool anybody?". But from the first time I performed this effect the reactions have grown with every performance. This is hard hitting magic and it blows people's minds. Also, this dvd version gives so much extra detail compared to its other publishings and is well worth the investment.
