<![CDATA[Tricks and DVDs]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/tricks Thu, 03 Sep 2015 23:18:38 +0000 Zend_Feed http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/tech/rss <![CDATA[WINDOW by David Stone]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/window-by-david-stone.html There are six routines given in the DVD but you'll come up with your own. The premise behind Window is simple. A selected card penetrates the glass, then changes into a different selected card whilst still behind the glass. This is completely hands off - there is no possible way you can get to the card on the other side of the glass - but it still magically changes.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Q. Where Can I Perform this?
A. You can perform Window on the Windscreen of a car, through a shop Window, on sliding glass doors, in a glass elevator - wherever there is a pane of glass that you can safely reach, you can perform Window. *You will need to be able to get to the OTHER side of the Glass in order to hand the selected card back to the Spectator - but the harder it is to do this, the more impossible the effect will seem to your audience.

Q. Do I need anything else to perform this?
A. No. There’s a beautiful hand-made gimmick INCLUDED, so you can perform straight out of the box. You will need tape to stick it onto the Window, and David teaches a number of different performance ideas that use items like a regular Red Bicycle Deck, Windex (window cleaner) and a cloth etc - you can see where we're going with this.

Q. How hard is WINDOW?
A. Easier than Tarantula but harder than the Ball & Vase.  You won’t have problems. There are several ways to perform the effect. In the most difficult routine you do a force and a top change. In the easiest you simply make the card change behind glass.

Q. How complicated is the reset on this?
A. The reset is instant.

Q. How complicated is the gimmick?
A. As far as using it goes - not at all. If you can use sticky-tape and wave your hand, you can perform Window. The gimmick itself takes does all the work for you, with David Stone taking an hour and a half to manufacture one himself by hand... Ok. David Stone doesn't really make the gimmicks himself, he's too busy performing the trick to people who pay good money to see him. Your hand-made gimmick constructed by his team will be included in your package though, no worries.

Q. Why perform this behind glass? Isn't it just a color change?


A. Pick which way gets 20 times the reaction. The Erdnase change above, or doing the exact same thing to a card with a massive pane of glass in the way. That's why it's done behind Glass. The full routine (below) shows just how impressive this effect really is.

""David showed this to me at the 4F convention this past April. He not only tipped the method, but let me PLAY with it. WOW! This is so cool and there are so many variations possible with it. I wanted to buy one on the spot, but I had to wait like everyone else. Er, David?"
~ Marc DeSouza, top magic pro.

THE ROUTINE

Click play to watch Window in action from start to finish.

WE SAY

Can you imagine doing the standard "Here, Then There" effect where a card in the spectator's hand changes with one in yours ------- and then telling them you are going to PROVE IT so you do it again but this time one of the cards is BEHIND GLASS and you can still do it?

Remember that feeling when you very first saw Copperfield? GET READY TO FEEL IT.

When Jean Luc and David sent this over to us, we watched in amazement and suddenly felt like we were children. We DID NOT want to know how it was done so we could hold on to that giddy feeling.

What sent us reeling was the twist, never has there been such an added visual change behind glass involved in any Card Through Window. It pretty much wrecked us.

We love this effect and promote it with all our heart and soul.

~ Jason B.

Let the spectator keep the coin - let them take it home as a souvenir. They'll remember you for years to come.A mind-blowing, brilliant release by Roy Kueppers that will allow you to fool YOURSELF when performing it in the mirror.

<![CDATA[Smiley by Laurent Mikelfield]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/smiley-by-laurent-mikelfield.html


"Now THAT'S a breakfast!"
The Ellusionist team stepped off a plane to Paris for the first time ever. They were dragged to the city of love by what they had seen across the Internet.

Would we go all that way for something mediocre? You bet not.

We filmed four projects over there, amidst an avalanche of croissants, excellent coffee, and checking out good looking french women. We rented a studio and lived at the studio while we were filming. Our view was of Notre Dame about a block away, and the Eiffel T in the distance.

How much fun it was discussing and working on these effects with our wonderful French counterparts. You realize they have some superb workers over there don't you?



"Magic Dream Magic Shop. Best ever."
We sat with the underground legend Bebel in a seedy out of the way diner, watching him do things with cards we only dreamed of. We saw magic theater shows - amazing! We sessioned with many top pros, Eric knows all of them. And we saw the best magic shop in the world (guess which one?).

But best of all, we filmed SMILEY. And smile we did. We all love this trick and we think it will become a classic of sorts. You NEED fast, clean working effects that you can bust out anytime. This one works like a CHARM.



"Filming with Bebel in the Pigalle district"

The gimmick takes time and care to build, but WE build it FOR you, and we wanted to give you TWO just to be sure. But a single gimmick will last hundreds and hundreds of performances.

We encourage you to go for the Buy button on this one, believe us, you won't regret it. You'll be too busy having a blast performing this wunderkind of a trick and, well... smiling your pants off!

Er, have a nice day. Merci! ☺

<![CDATA[Shadow Masters Rising Deck]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/shadow-rising-decks.html

You could even set the cards on a table and cover them with a wine glass... the chosen card will still rise straight out of the pack. You can have three people pick cards and make all three chosen cards rise out of the pack one after the other. The possibilities are endless.

This deck is the highest quality on the market - be careful, there are cheaper versions that simply do not operate well... we've tested all of them thoroughly and chose this one for smoothness and beautiful ease of operation. With this stunning effect, you'll be armed with one of the most mind-blowing effects in magic.

NOTE: All rising decks sold at ellusionist.com behave exactly the same as the Tiger Rising Deck.

<![CDATA[Raven Classic]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/raven-classic-coin-vanish-trick.html

The boy is on his way home from school when he is stopped by the magician and asked if he'd like to see something. When the boy says YES the magician asks for a quarter. Placing it on the back of the boy's hand he asks the boy to be stilll. The magician simply waves his hand over the coin and suddenly it is no longer visible on the boy's hand. It is gone, and both of the magician's hands are empty. The magician didn't touch the coin but the boy could FEEL it disappear off his hand.

This is the devastating work of Chuck Leach who developed and created the Raven, a stunning prop that allows you to cause the mysterious and explosive disappearance of a nickel, quarter, and other small objects - even while wearing a short sleeve shirt.

We confidently say that it's one of the best investments you can make in the world of street magic.

Includes shell nickel, tiny nickel, hand crafted Raven gimmick and full instruction booklet including photographs of each step you must take to learn the illusion. Can be learned in about an hour or so.

<![CDATA[Money by Lloyd Barnes]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/money-by-lloyd-barnes.html With no cover, no hand-switching, no fancy origami and no stacks of bills to hide behind, a single dollar bill changes into a ten - or even a hundred - in the blink of an eye.

In his newest release, ‘Money’, Lloyd Barnes has created what could possibly be called the most stunning bill change we've ever seen.

When Team Ellusionist saw this effect on video, we were practically falling over each other to get Lloyd on the phone. When he demonstrated it live for us - we knew we had to have it. Clean. Pure. Direct. 'Money' is everything great magic should be.

*** NOTE: Contact Ellusionist Support to purchase additional gimmicks ***

 
  
 


Use any currency, and denomination - or (as demonstrated in the trailer) let your imagination run wild and change other items into money:

• Instantly cash in a winning lotto or scratch ticket.
• Get a refund from a receipt.
• Show how you ‘saved money’ using a voucher.
• Cash a check without the bank.
• Perform the change in a spectator's hands...
click to watch
Lloyd answers questions and demonstrates various methods


The method for this effect leaves the change entirely up to you. With nearly TWO HOURS of teaching, multiple handlings, tips, performance ideas, switches and changes, Money leaves no doubt that Lloyd Barnes has thought about every possible detail when it comes to his effect.

Lloyd’s signature style places the beauty of the magic before anything else - however, the simplicity, practicality and ease of this change proves that nothing has been compromised - and the name 'Lloyd Barnes' could just be the newest 'one to watch'.

Add it to cart, today.

Note: Shortly after we teased Lloyd Barnes’ ‘Money' across our social media, we found another company was quick to pre-release what appears to be a very similar effect. However, they are not the same. Due to the different method of this other effect, you are limited to very few handlings. ‘Money' does not have these restrictions, with the precision gimmick allowing a plethora of handlings – including having the change happen in the spectator’s hand – as seen in the trailer. Money can also be performed with other currencies, different sized bills and even other objects (again - as shown in the trailer).

BOOK CONTENTS

There’s a time for lying - A stunning 'spectator as mind reader' effect featuring several utility moves with a wide range of applications.

Into the Void - An impossibly clean and direct 'think of a card' routine destined to go into your repertoire!

Sensory Intelligence -
Compromised of three increasingly powerful reveals using three business cards and can be performed entirely impromptu.

Emphatic Touch
- A close up, self contained take on the “blister” effect providing an astonishing way to leave the spectator with your business card.

Crooked - A direct and logical approach to “Psychic Poker” or "Tell reading" using just a regular deck and minimal sleight of hand.

Jigsaw - A signature effect for a long time. An insanely direct “think a card” with no physical cards present which can be performed virtually impromptu and prop less.

Future Prophecies - A very versatile routine, giving the performer a risk free way of practising psychological forces with a guaranteed prediction kicker using everyday office items.

Glitch - A massively streamlined approach to the single “Card in Wallet” idea.

Dead Cut Redux - A very fooling close up routine using playing cards with progressively more impossible stages using minimum sleight of hand and a normal deck.

<![CDATA[KuKarate Coin]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/kukarate-coin.html

Master Coinsmith Roy Kueppers has taken the original Karate Coin concept and given it his signature, refined-yet-epic take. Fashioned from a pristine Kennedy Half Dollar, each tear in the coin is carefully machined and turned by hand, producing a puncture that looks like a bullet hole - or more accurately - like it's just been punched through with your finger.

The majority of other Karate Coins we've seen on the market are mass produced, simply cross-scored and pushed through, leaving an ugly, clearly manufactured hole - to the point where you'd have a hard time convincing anyone your finger produced it. The KuKarate coin is without a doubt one of the best Coin Gimmicks we've ever seen.

Fast List

  • • Show off your ninja skills by stabbing a coin in midair.
  • • Fashioned from a pristine Kennedy Half Dollar.
  • • Hand made by Roy Kueppers in Canada
  • • Package includes gimmick & full written instructions.


Check out the photos above, and then add KuKarate to your cart.

<![CDATA[Fraud by Daniel Garcia]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/fraud-by-daniel-garcia.html

Shot on location at San Quentin Federal Prison and at Ellusionist's West Coast Studios, FRAUD is Daniel Garcia at his best.

Jam-packed with street performances and detailed instruction, Garcia leaves no rock unturned.

The beauty of FRAUD is its simplicity. A spectator's signed, borrowed bill and your hands - that's it. At the end, they are left with their signed bill still in hand-- visibly altered in a manner they know is impossible.

The seal on the signed bill is pushed from one side of the bill all the way to the other.

Start clean. End clean. They can examine your hands, the bill, and the Sharpie to their heart's content. There's nothing to do but take their bill home with them and start showing it to people.

Garcia previously gave this to a few trusted friends. Now he gives it to you in the Ellusionist-produced DVD

FRAUD

Follow Garcia as he performs FRAUD and explains the brilliant technique behind it.

Shot in Sony High Definition and mastered to DVD in pristine Ellusionist quality. Not available as a download.

<![CDATA[Box Monster - Nate Kranzo]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/box-monster-nate-kranzo.html With no false motions, the card box visibly opens itself and one card is seen to slowly, visibly rise up out of the deck. Your hand grips the card gently, then pulls it out of the deck. The card is slowly turned over-- done. You've nailed card number one.

The cards are then held in your hands. The spectators eyes are fixed on your hands like a hawk. You bring the cards down to the table and begin to spread the cards slowly from right to left.

One card begins to slowly move out of the spread, towards the spectator -- while on the table. You've never seen anything like this. And your spectators haven't either-- it's downright eerie.

This is not a toy. This is a "badass" device that allows you to launch fireballs from your open palm.

Fire. Since the dawn of time it has been the reward at the end of man's quest. Both creator and destroyer, it has historically been the element hardest to control. Until now. Your quest is over. The power of fire in the palm of your hand. That's the power of PYRO.

The first of its kind, PYRO is a high-tech, wrist-worn, James Bond style device that allows you to shoot magnificent balls of fire from your open hand.

Featuring four separate chambers for multiple shots, an easy to use remote device, soft touch finish and adjustable wrist strap, PYRO is about to turn up the heat on your performances.

Please Note: You must be 18 or over to purchase and/or use the Pyro Device
 

  

 

At Ellusionist, we’re continually striving to make you look like a SuperHero. To give you the appearance of other-worldy powers. We’ve taught you how to bend metal with your mind with the Shift Series. We’ve taught you how to use your icy breath to freeze a quarter with Frozen.

Now - we’re giving you the power to shoot fireballs on demand. Welcome to Pyro.

'Pyro goes way beyond magic and puts an unexplainable, supernatural power in your hands. I don’t leave home without it and am constantly finding excuses to shoot fireballs from my empty hands.' - Daniel Madison

FULL OVERVIEW

Comprehensive Instructional It is a condition of purchase that you watch the PYRO instructional in its entirety, prior to operating your unit. Adam Wilber goes over the safety precautions, correct operation and performance ideas for this device. We've given you multiple ideas to get you started - but the possibilities are truly endless. PYRO is a true utility device that opens up a new and exciting side to your magic.

Multiple Shot Capability Each PYRO unit comes with 4 individually triggered barrels, meaning you can shoot off 4 fireballs before a reload is required. We highly recommend you use only the Flash Packs we supply and recommend, with each pack containing enough flash cotton and paper for over 60 uses.

Handsfree Operation The PYRO Unit itself has been designed to contour to the underside of the wrist, leaving the hand shooting the fireball completely empty. The supplied fastener allows the sleeve to hide the unit, while keeping out of the way of the flaming shots. The remote switch has been designed to fit comfortably and discretely in the other hand, activated with a squeeze of the fist. Small and light enough to sit in a pocket when not in use without you - or your spectators - noticing it’s there.

Rugged & Reliable As soon as you open the box and feel the unit yourself, you can feel the quality and level of R&D that has gone into the production of this device. Over two years of refinements and seven prototypes, both PYRO Unit and the Remote have gone through hell and back, pressure and temperature stressed every individual component - from heater coil though to remote receiver and cycle tested through to failure, to guarantee performance and longevity of the final unit. What you have after all of this, is a device that both Ellusionist and Adam Wilber are proud to stand behind.

Fully Guaranteed PYRO comes with an end to end, 60 day full replacement warranty. While we’re confident that if the directions are followed you will not have any issues with the unit, those that may arise can easily be troubleshooted. PYRO’s creator, Adam Wilber, stands behind each and every unit sold. If for any reason your unit stops functioning, Adam has made himself available to answer questions and walk you through any common issues personally. If after speaking to Adam your unit still does not function, simply return it within 60 days of purchase for a replacement unit at no cost to you.

WIZARD PRODUCT REVIEW


Working in one of Europe's Largest Magic Shops, and professional performers themselves, David Penn and Jonathan Farr know what they're talking about. Their review show on Youtube is the most watched and respected in the industry. Receiving a 100% rating is almost unheard of - but if anything is going to get it - it's PYRO. You can see the full video (and subscribe) here.


PYROMANIACS

In the lead up to release we sent a number of PYRO units out to some of the most creative up-and-comers in the industry to put the PYRO unit through its paces - and the reviews are most definitely in. Every single person that received PYRO called us up and raved about it.

Like kids in a candy shop, PYRO has ignited an excitement within them. After the initial 'precautious tomfoolery' of simply shooting hundreds of fireballs from their hands, they got to thinking about all the different ways PYRO can be used. We've included a few videos below of these PYROMANIACS in action.


Click Here   Dalton Wayne - This is one of the most fun clips we've seen using PYRO. Recently a contestant on Wizard Wars, Dalton's regular gig is as a professional magician at Universal Studios and Walt Disney World - the most magical place on earth, so the bar's been set pretty high for excitement. Which is why we're thrilled with how excited he is about the possibilities of PYRO... and with good reason.

Click Here Jibri 'Jibrizy' Taylor - It's clear that from the moment Jibrizy opens up his PYRO box, he's ecstatic. Still fairly new to the other side of the magic curtain, Jibrizy is a charming, energetic performer, and his creativity overflows in everything he does. This is a man to watch. We're sure that you'll be seeing more of him on Ellusionist some time in the future.

Click Here Raymond Singson - You may remember Ray from the 'Stained Skin' tattoo DVDs a while back - and even if you don't, you've undoubtedly seen him leading our forums at Ellusionist Performance HQ. Ray has spent the last 15 years performing and is a much loved reviewer of magic products, so when it comes to this sort of thing - he knows his stuff. Jump to 4:31 for the action.

Click Here Lloyd Barnes - The newest member of Team Ellusionist, Lloyd's creative mind races at a million miles a minute. As a talent scout and creative consultant, Lloyd has a unique insight that sees him on top of things right from the ground floor of our releases, helping artists develop their effects to their full potential. So when Lloyd called Adam teeming with performance ideas, we knew we were onto something big. Skip to 8:17 to see Lloyd's reaction to the final PYRO product.


PYRO uses 2 x AAA Batteries and 1 x 2032 Watch Battery (Not Supplied). Included in your package is 1 Bundle of Flash Cotton, 8 Large Sheets of Flash Paper and a Pad of 40 Small Pre-Cut Sheets

<![CDATA[Arcane Gaff Deck and Techniques DVD]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/arcane-gaff-deck-dvd.html

Comparing the Arcane Gaff decks to most gaff decks is like comparing sparring to cage fighting. You know that you've come to the party prepared. When you carry weaponry this engineered, the moment is about to be owned by you.

Nearly all the individual cards were created by Greg Wilson and his secret weapon Jimmy the Grip. (Jimmy is an underground worker who prefers to remain in shadows, but is consulted in nearly all Greg's work.) With relentless attention to detail, we trashed rules and began discovering new, unexplored gaff magic. What was born was a new era in gaff magic.

SEE ALL BLACK CARDS   SEE ALL WHITE CARDS


FULL DVD CONTENT
The long playing DVD walks you through the uses for these gaff cards, teaches you the must-know sleights that solidify the experience. You'll go out onto the hot streets of Austin TX where the film was shot, witness never-before-seen effects performed by Greg as he unveils the true power of gaffed card magic, in force.

<![CDATA[Stay Cool by Tobias Dostal]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/stay-cool-by-tobias-dostal.html

But Stay Cool is more than just a production of sunglasses. Through months of refining and late nights spent with product engineers, we have developed a triple-change that delivers a one-two magic combination. The production of Green Framed Sunglasses changes to Yellow Framed Sunglasses with a wave of the hand. Another wave, and the glasses have changed to Black.

The sunglasses may immediately be handed out for inspection - but there’s really no need. Instead, finish your spectator's drink for them, yell ‘Whoooooooo! Deal with It!’ and walk out with a spring in your step. It’s easy to see why Tony Chang calls this his new favorite trick.

 


STORIES
- Tony Chang joined us for the filming of Stay Cool in Brooklyn and had a few things to say about possibilities in performance... although we'd recommend you take his advice with a grain of salt.





COMMITMENT
- The key to Stay Cool is commitment. Like anything in life, 99% of it is about the attitude you adopt. Tony has us in stitches as he explains his ideas on attitude and truly committing to your performance.

 


 

PSYCHOLOGY - Tony discusses why Stay Cool is so effective - that its kitsch, unexpected nature punches through the bubble that people hide themselves in, and allows you to develop instant rapport with your audience. The perfect combination of magic and comedy.



Tobias spends nearly an hour teaching variation after variation for the Stay Cool production, with inspiration taken from classic comic legends - everyone from Buster Keaton to Marcel Marceau.

Filmed in the Ellusionist HQ Brooklyn Studio with live performances shot during the Open-to-the-Public Studio Party, Stay Cool contains everything you need to absolutely OWN any room you walk into.

<![CDATA[The Gaff System]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/gaff-system-madison-morelli-jones.html

This is where the Gaff System differs from other decks; within are 15 separate effects that for any other project would be sold as standalone products - but with our mission to create the most insane gaff deck ever, we combined them all into this ONE deck.

From a torn and restored card that melts back together in a unique and unexplainable way, to a chosen card becoming a chapstick in a spectator’s hands. Each effect in this system is a worker. There is no room for ‘filler’. Each card placed in the deck has been carefully considered against a ‘wait-list’ of other effects to determine whether it TRULY belonged.

 

  
 

When we took the finalised artwork to USPCC we were told that the Gaff System could not be made. The photo realism of some of the cards in the deck used too many colors for the printers to handle, and cards like the ‘Chaptrick’ had them worried - because it looked ‘so much’ like a real Chapstick it sent their legal department scurrying.

Undeterred, we found our own printer who not only matched the feel of the cards in the deck to those in the Artifice Deck - but printed with such high quality that even Mike Clarke, who created the graphics for the deck, was impressed.

15 Unbelievable Effects. 3 Superstars of Magic. 1 Incredible Project. This is, The Gaff System.


The Superstars



 
CALEN MORELLI

Since his first release ‘Clench’ with Ellusionist, Calen’s gone on to do some pretty amazing things. Things like ‘Consulting for David Blaine, David Copperfield and Dynamo’. Serious credentials. Calen's style is organic magic, effects that challenge people’s understanding of everyday objects - and it’s this bending of reality that he brings to the Gaff System.



Taught by Calen Morelli : Mismade Jack | Chaptrick | TRNT | Shadowplay | Meld

DANIEL MADISON

As Creative Consultant for Ellusionist, Daniel Madison utilises his creative flair, studies in deception, and hard-earned experience to deliver remarkable effects to our catalogue. Daniel’s signature releases are used by a who’s-who of magic. It's Daniel's unique blend of 'impossible objects' and 'impossible occurrences' that makes his effects stand out in this set.
 



Taught by Daniel Madison : Angle Z | Half Vanish | Magnify | Peek Box



 
ERIC JONES

Although best known for his work with coins, Eric Jones’s card work is finessed and elegant - a trait that underlines the effects Eric brought to the Gaff System. In this DVD, Eric builds on the work of Larry Jennings, Marlo, Erdnase, Hugard and Braue to deliver four effects with style and grace rarely seen in gaffed card magic.


Taught by Eric Jones : Hoarders | Morph | Side Effect | On Point .



In the Box

The Gaff System consists of 2 parts - the Artifice Gaff Deck and the two-disc Gaff System DVD. While they are available separately, the deck by itself is only sold as a ‘refill’ - as without prior purchase of the DVD you will not know how to use the deck.

Containing 54 cards utilised for 15 effects (listed below) and tailored for use with the Green, Blue or White Artifice decks - including vital extras of those cards you’re likely to be giving away - the Artifice Gaff Deck is the backbone of this system.

The two-disc DVD set contains over three hours of performances, teaching, invaluable advice and real world tips from the guys who actually created the effects - and know the potential of these as hard-hitting pieces of magic. Calen Morelli takes to Venice Beach to share the newly created magic of the Gaff System, and astonishes crowd after crowd with these tricks...

The Effects

  MisMade Jack... The printing on a single playing card moves with the wave of the hand - twice - leaving the spectator with an impossible object - a misprinted Jack. This effect is so visual, even Peter McKinnon flipped out during the filming of the explanation.

Chaptrick... When we shared this video on social media, our Facebook exploded - nearly 400 shares and 1800 likes on this trick alone. The card chosen by a spectator vanishes from the deck - only to appear in the Chapstick they’ve been holding the whole time.

TNRT... This is Brad Christian’s favorite of all the effects on the Gaff System. The clearly torn flap of a tuck-box restores with a rub of the finger. Hyper visual - and totally unexplainable.

Shadowplay... Who hasn’t used the light on a camera phone to navigate through the shadows at night? In this trick, Calen uses the light to produce a shadow on a playing card - a shadow that stays fixed, even when the finger that made it is taken away.

Meld...A Torn and Restored Card effect that restores in the spectator’s hands… but not the way you’d think. Four clearly torn pieces are placed in the outstretched hands of the spectator, only to meld together in a misshapen stack.

Hoarders... Four Kings are placed into a card box and three selections lost in the deck. When the card box is opened again - the selections are seen sandwiched between the Kings. With a pinch, the Kings disappear - leaving only the selections behind - and the Kings? Face up, in the middle of the deck.

Morph... This is how a color change really should look. A single card morphs back and forth between a Queen and a Four, with a wave of the hand before being handed back to a spectator, one card - completely changed.

Side Effect... An effect where your imagination is the only limit. The writing on the side of a deck of cards changes with a wave of the finger. Anything from ‘Your Card is’ changed to ’Three of Hearts’ through to ‘Happy Birthday’ changed to ‘(Spectator’s Name)’. Great for conveying a personal message - or using as an ‘Impromptu Magic 8 Ball'.

On Point... A chosen card is lost in the deck, and the Artifice Joker enlisted to help find it. With a flutter of the card, the joker points to wherever the spectators card is located - even when he’s moved away from the deck. Eric Jones breathes life into the deck’s mysterious gentleman.

Angle Z... While Madison devotes a whole DVD to Angle Z- here, this is the incredible Gaff System Version. The corner of a card is ripped off and then gently balanced on the card’s back. Slowly the card is tilted - with the corner defying gravity, staying stuck to the card. Not just stuck - melted.

Half Vanish... Like an Erdnase Change in slow-motion. An out-jogged card slowly vanishes from the deck, visibly dissolving through the top card in the deck, until it’s completely invisible. A gorgeous piece of magic.

Magnify... A picture is taken of a face-up card with a smart phone, and then zoomed in with a tap. When the phone is taken away from the deck the card itself is seen to have zoomed in as well. With a pinch on the deck, it changes back to regular size.

Peek Box... Daniel Madison exposes a trick gamblers use to peek the bottom card of the deck - a rip in the tuck box shows the index. However when a spectator’s card is involved, things don’t go the way you’d expect. A baffling trick hidden in a gambling demonstration.

Bonuses


  Immaculate Reconnect... Adam Wilber teaches his ending for Paul Harris’s ‘Immaculate Connection’ - the centers of three ripped cards used in the effect melt back into the torn cards - only, the wrong centres are used. An unexpected kicker to an awesome effect that leaves the spectators with an impossible object. Also contains thoughts and handling from Michael Weber.

Aquafina... To round out the Gaff System, Adam Wilber teaches a ‘Card to Bottle’ effect that doesn’t go as planned. The label on a water bottle is peeled off to reveal the spectator’s chosen card.



The Gaff Deck and Two Disc DVD Set is currently only available together as package - allowing you to save $15 off the normal price of the Deck and DVD separately. Extra Gaff Decks will be available in 2014 if you need replacements. We've also made a full deck of Angle Z cards available - as it is an effect that's strongest when you hand the card out.

Add the Gaff System to your cart today.

Special Note: While there are one or two effects in the system that use only one card - the majority do require the use of one of the Artifice Decks in conjunction with a the Gaff Cards. Be sure to stock up on Artifice: Cobalt Blue, Emerald Green and Tundra Decks before you check out - or add all three to your cart in a 3-Deck Sample Pack and get a free Deck on the house.

<![CDATA[Madison Gamblers]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/madison-gamblers.html Gamblers Gaffs have been created for demonstrations of seriously advanced sleight of hand for any performer. They won't create a brilliant presentation for you, but, slipped in occasionally to a demonstration they will allow a few minds to be shattered. Especially those who watch with a knowing eye.

We recognize that there are sleight of hand purists who may say that a gambling demonstration should be something achieved with a standard deck of cards and pure skill. If that’s your belief then we invite you to start on Disc 2 of this set. You can hear what Alex Pandrea, Brad Christian, Tony Chang, and many others have to say about it.

When method is put as the priority of the performance, at the expense of the audience’s perception, then you have missed the point of performance. What matters is what is perceived by the audience.

Perception is Reality - or in the words of Daniel Madison, "If there's a deck that makes a move ten times easier, and it makes me look ten times better, then you're damn right I'm going to use cards like this…"

A Note from Daniel Madison

Of all of the things that can be achieved by difficult sleight-of-hand, when taken out of their intended purposes for the sake of demonstration or performance, there is a fine line between actual and pseudo executions.

Over the years I have collected ideas on how to achieve near-impossible sleights without the necessary work, simply for the sake of demonstrations and pseudo exposure. Some of these ideas are methods disguised as other methods, and the others, are gaff playing cards that are never seen by the onlooker. Those ideas became the Madison Gamblers.

People may argue that gambling is an art form of intricate and difficult sleight-of-hand, and that demonstrations should be truthful, and I would agree, however, gambling was not made to be exposed or demonstrated and so exposure of gambling has itself become a new art, constantly demonstrated by people, most of whom have never played a game of cards let alone executed an illegal move at one.

The Madison Gamblers are for the demonstrators, for those who want to showcase an intricate skill in order to make their exposures far better and far more believable. They are under the radar, they will never be seen, and with these, your reputation as a gambler will reach great new heights.

 

  
 


The Deck.


The Effects.


Dice - The only gaff in the entire deck that stands out as a ‘gimmicked card’. A standard die transforms into a paper die in the action of being thrown. When unfolded, the die’s construction paper turns out to be a previously selected card.

2 Card Monty - Utility cards that allow for the performance of the myriad of Two and Three Card Monte effects that abound. Daniel teaches his handling for both a tabled and in-the-hands version.

BlackJack - A truly phenomenal demonstration that combines center dealing two cards from different places in the deck in a single deal, with an invisible palm and muck/switch. Deal yourself the perfect blackjack hand (almost) every time.

Replacement Ace - A game of poker is dealt to the number of hands named by a spectator. While the spectator receives a very strong hand, they are of course beaten by the performer. A fact predetermined by the writing on the Ace of Spades.

Replacement Joker - The same basic effect as Replacement Ace, only this time the spectator is accidentally dealt a joker as part of their hand - a card which they obviously discard. The effect is possibly stronger, given the writing was in front of the spectator the entire time.

The Poker Lesson - A Sam-the-Bellhop style of effect that makes sense in a gambling demonstration, teaching the ranking of poker hands to a spectator. The method for this effect also opens itself to memory recall presentations, included but not limited to card at any number.

Stolen Card - A card is chosen and returned to the deck. The performer deals a poker hand to the table, and confirms with the spectator that their card is amongst those dealt. In the act of squaring the pack, the chosen card is stolen invisibly, to be dealt from the pack whenever the performer decides.

Straight Switch - The performer attempts to demonstrate crooked dealing, aiming for a straight poker hand, however misses completely. The hand is squared, and invisibly switched for the correct cards - the named straight now in the performers hand.

Royal Switch - Similar to the Straight Switch, the performer misses dealing the winning hand. With a switch, he swaps the incorrect cards for the Royal Flush - the incorrect cards being returned invisibly to the top of the pack.

Cut Card i - A utility cut card that supposedly makes bottom dealing impossible. As this card is printed on card stock, it is easy to manipulate. Daniel shows how he uses it to Greek Deal the four Aces, and how to apparently prove you have a photographic memory.

Cut Card ii - Daniel demonstrates a number of ways to use the cut card as a stab card to present a prediction effect, a switch or a center deal with an indicated card.

Cut Card iii - An idea from Mark Calabrese. The cut card is placed on top of the face up deck. In a move that beggars belief, the card below the cut card is topshot from beneath the cut card into the hand. This effect will have your audience doing repeated double takes. Daniel also teaches a method that allows you to vanish a single card from under the cut card in the hands.

Center Deal - Four Aces are placed face up in separate places throughout the face-down deck. The deck is spread both Face Up and Face Down to show the position of the cards. Cleanly and fairly, the four aces are dealt, one at a time, from their respective places in the deck. The deck is spread to show the aces have indeed been dealt cleanly, and that there are no duplicates.

Middle Deal - The four aces are dealt from the top of the deck to the table, before being put face down into separate positions throughout the facedown deck. Again, they are dealt fairly to the table - each having come from the middle of the deck. The deck is spread to verify they have truly been dealt.


The Discussion.


 

The Teacher

 

The Artist

 

The Worker

 

  The Move Monkey



In disc two of Gamblers, Daniel sits down with modern magic professionals - each with their own individual style - to discuss the psychology of gaffed card use, and how unseen gaffs can - and should - be used to enhanced demonstrations of cheating at the card table.

Nearly an hour of in-depth interviews with Brad Christian, Peter McKinnon, Adam Wilber, Tony Chang, Mark Calabrese, Alex Pandrea and Tobias Dostal make this a project unlike any other. When you watch this DVD, take a notepad. These men will have you thinking more strategically about your magic - and your audiences will thank you for it.

"After my show I was mobbed by the magicians wanting to know how I created the smoke..." - Jonathan Pendragon, World-renowned Professional Magician

"This is it. THIS is the type of smoke I've waited my whole life for." - Eric Jones, Top Pro


Why it Works

The reason Pure Smoke works so well is because your audience is not just witnessing a card effect or coin effect, they are being taken to a world that until recently was only available in the movies. No longer are you a person who knows some card effects, but now you are taking them to a world where apparently ANYTHING can happen.

The Pure Smoke system is a major upgrade over virtually every smoke delivery system on the market for good reason: It's more compact, easy to use, economic and the smoke it delivers is mystical and mysterious — it looks like it's straight out of a computer-animated fantasy, and Greg Wilson shows you how to make the absolute most out of the system with the tricks, tips and routines on this DVD .


Don't Run Out of Smoke

When you first buy your Pure Smoke system you will use one box of cartridges in practicing and having fun— you may want to stock up on Pure Smoke refills now.
