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.
I was reasonably certain I knew the method but really wanted to learn it the right way. This project is worth every penny. DM goes into great detail - watch the whole thing, at least a few times. I went out last night and performed it... bearing DM's advice (which would not have been how I'd have tried it by just guessing) and, I swear, I got the biggest reaction I've ever gotten. They freaked the f*** out!
If you already know this piece from earlier - the touches he adds in this dvd that he admits to wishing he had shared long ago are what made me nail it. Hell, I wasn't even worried about it working - I knew it would.
Pick this up. If you don't have this effect in your regular work, you will.
Great trick!!! I know it's a bit pricey but it's worth it...and Chris... If your a beginner like you are you should really focus on getting fundamentals down. I don't want to discourage you but it's a long road to be OK at magic.
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.
