Cell Break by Justin Miller

Downloadable Video
This is not a card routine. This is not a traditional coin routine. This is a whole different out-of-the-box effect… and that’s what we like about it.

Four coins are borrowed from a spectator and placed on top of a card case. The spectator is asked to choose a coin to use for the effect, and the other three coins are handed back, to be kept in their closed fist.

With their chosen coin sitting on top of the card box, the performer gently presses down, and with a rub, the coin has penetrated the cellophane of the box. It is now visibly trapped under plastic, unable to move!

With a wave of the hand over the box, the coin disappears from sight - having escaped the confines of the cellophane. The spectator is asked to open their hand, revealing their chosen coin has now jumped to join the other three.

Building on a concept discovered by David Williamson, Justin Miller has created a routine that leaves audiences in stunned silence as they try to backtrack and solve what they’ve just seen. This is Cell Break.

    I've bought a lot of JM's work on Ellusionist. He has never disappointed but this time..... he blew my mind again. Especially love the coin vanish! It's so bloody clean! Great trick!

    Amazing trick, amazing teacher. This trick is superb. I had to check if this trick used gimmicks- but it does not! This is another great effect from JM and I love it.
