<![CDATA[Superman 2. 0 Coin Bend ]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/superman-coin-bend.html

Immediately, with no hesitation, you let the coin fall into their hands for full, complete examination. Unless you're performing for Chuck Norris*, they won't be able to bend the coin a single bit. Use a quarter, dime, penny, half-dollar - anything.

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[Spider Pen Pro by Yigal Mesika]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/spider-pen-pro-by-yigal-mesika.html

From the leading brand in the art of levitations comes the new gold standard in IT reels. When you put your hands on the state of the art engineering in the Spider Pen Pro, your levitations and animations will look like Hollywood’s special effects. Nothing else comes close.

In 2004, the original Spider Pen became a classic magical instrument. Due to the worldwide popularity, Yigal Mesika has honed the original concept to once again reinvent the reel.

The Spider Pen Pro is nothing short of a revolutionary electronic device because it is the first to feature patented Soul Technology. This breakthrough technology allows you to take your mind off of the method and lets you focus on your magic, giving you the undeniable edge for mastering levitations and animations.

Used on TV by top magicians like Cyril, Criss Angel, and many more.

  • • Perform sleeveless, without assistants and completely surrounded.
  • • A real writing pen with refillable ink, made of premium quality steel with chrome finish.

  • • Walk up to 35 feet away from floating objects.
  • • Constant perfect even tension.
  • • No springs or rubber-bands.
  • • Changing the spool is as easy as 1-2-3
  • • MADE IN THE USA

Watch and learn as Yigal Mesika himself guides you through the basics of levitation to bring you to an exceptional performance level. You will learn his signature effects, tips, and subtleties; that will make you feel like you are receiving his live personal coaching, including;

  • • Zero Gravity Bill

<![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[SAW DVD by Sean Fields]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/saw-dvd-by-sean-fields.html

Now for the REALLY disturbing part; the performer begins to pull the thread back through his throat!  This is grotesque; the spectator can actually SEE the thread tearing through the skin!

After the thread has ripped through the skin, there is no wound, no scars, nothing to see, and nothing to find. Just a hunk of thread, a naked neck and the memory of an unspeakable weirdness.

You can also 'swallow' a finger ring, perform SAW and pull the thread out of your neck with the ring attached.

Sean Fields has created a deeply disturbing effect, and has teamed up with a somewhat concerned Rodney Reyes to make it available to those that like this sort of thing.

<![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[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[Illumin8 by Mike Hankins]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/illuminate-by-mike-hankins.html

Illuminate takes card revelations to a whole new level, as the image of their card forms within the flame of the lighter you just borrowed. Want to document the image? Have the spectator snap a picture! Then offer to send it to them so they have something to have with them always! Illuminate is visual, practical, fun and easy to do!

"Try for a moment to realize its potential, and you will then want one!"
-Alain Nu, "The Man Who Knows"

"Mike has a winning combination of high tech and high touch magic. Illuminate is a magical mash up of the primal element of fire, a modern phone-cam, and playing cards."
-Jeff McBride, Creator of the Mystery School

“Mike Hankins has created a self working, offbeat illusion that anyone can master in minutes. Highly recommended.”
-Eric Jones

<![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[Equations by Jeff Lianza]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/equations-by-jeff-lianza.html Jeff Lianza's 'Equations' is a flawlessly written manuscript dedicated to solving Scarne's Riffle Stacking Problem on-the-fly. How many X cards must be dropped in between the desired cards to have them turn up precisely where they're needed?

Jeff's system not only teaches you the mechanics and methods of the stacking system, but provides a complete understanding of why it works. The 'Equation' allows you to deal the perfect hand to any seat with any number of players - as named by the spectator.

In 'The Hold Em Poker Stack' Jeff even goes as far as to teach the system to completely stack the deck, with the winning hand dealt to any player from any number of seats, with burn cards, flop, turn and river stacked to fall as skilfully orchestrated by the magician.

With teaching that includes the Casino standard of 'Riffle, RIffle, Strip, Riffle', if it weren't for the disclaimer at the start of the book, you may be tempted to take this system to a paid table - which we can not advise against strongly enough. This system is for the demonstration of gambling techniques for entertainment purposes only.

This is not a book for the beginner or faint of heart. Whilst there is much here for the novice, you do need to know how to riffle shuffle, and understand that this is a book for study, not for light reading. But for those who put in the effort - the rewards are boundless.

Format: Printed book.
Difficulty: Advanced.
Duration: 131 Pages.

<![CDATA[The Bold Project - Volume 3 - by Justin Miller]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/bold-by-justin-miller-volume-3.html

With Bold you will learn;

• How to structure your magic so that you can roll and adapt to ANY situation.

Why Justin gets the best reactions to his magic - and how you can too.

• How to direct attention to where you want it - and more importantly - where you DON'T want it to be.

• Why you shouldn't perform to magicians - but how to break their minds if you do.

• How to gain full control of your audience by making them part of the show.

• The casual actions that hide the 'dirty work' right in front of the face of your spectator.

And MUCH MORE.


Each carefully crafted effect on this DVD teaches more than simple mechanics. Audience management through scripting, timing, angles and psychology are all taught in context of each routine.


Bold teaches you to be the best magician that you can be - not for yourself, but because you owe it to your spectators. It’s the first step in getting you out the door and onto the streets with your magic.


Reach another level... with the final instalment in the BOLD trilogy. Order today

<![CDATA[A Single Needle by Wayne Houchin]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/a-single-needle-by-wayne-houchin.html

From the age of 12 Wayne has been obsessed with Houdini’s ‘East Indian Needle Mystery’ - commonly known as ‘the needle swallow’. His first effects involved toothpicks tied to thread and the swallowing of uncooked spaghetti - but from inauspicious beginnings came the stage version he performs in his stage show, involving 60 needles over a 12 minute routine.


After closing his stage show with the full version for years, Houchin stripped the trick down in order to discover what makes needle swallowing so effective. He distilled the effect down even further, to what has become A Single Needle and knew that the effect had become an impromptu street classic.


While Wayne has made every effort to create the safest version of this effect possible, there is some risk of injury involved. Multiple methods are discussed that heighten the illusion of danger while substantially lessening the actual danger to the performer.

By purchasing and/or performing the effects on this DVD, you acknowledge that performance of any method is at your own risk.

Fast List

  •             •   Unique handling means the thread never disappears from sight.
  •             •   No gimmicks - needle, spool and thread and you're ready to perform.
  •             •   Multiple versions taught including a "For the Faint of Heart" method.
  •             •   Cherries and Giant Cupcake not Included.

This is not an effect that can be missed. Order 'A Single Needle' Now.

<![CDATA[The Bold Project - Volume 2]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/bold-by-justin-miller-volume-2.html

With Bold you will learn;

• How to structure your magic so that you can roll and adapt to ANY situation.

Why Justin gets the best reactions to his magic - and how you can too.

• How to direct attention to where you want it - and more importantly - where you DON'T want it to be.

• Why you shouldn't perform to magicians - but how to break their minds if you do.

• How to gain full control of your audience by making them part of the show.

• The casual actions that hide the 'dirty work' right in front of the face of your spectator.

And MUCH MORE.

Each carefully crafted effect on this DVD teaches more than simple mechanics. Audience management through scripting, timing, angles and psychology are all taught in context of each routine.


Bold teaches you to be the best magician that you can be - not for yourself, but because you owe it to your spectators. It’s the first step in getting you out the door and onto the streets with your magic.


Take your magic from guts to glory... with the second instalment in the BOLD trilogy. Order today

<![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.

<![CDATA[Invisible by Damien Savina]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/invisible-by-damien-savina.html  

Stop for a moment and think about just how powerful that image was.

That's just one of the SIX full routines you'll learn that you'll be performing after watching this DVD (and practicing of course), as this set contains everything you need to perform, impromptu, right out of the box.
