Topic: Sign Off - Damien O'Brien & Leon May (Alakazam)
Message: Posted by: saysold1 (Apr 4, 2011 05:24PM)
With my new F1 wallet I just received a brochure advertising (OK - teasing) about a new effect Peter and company are putting out called "Sign Off." It sounds a little like Masuda's WOW just based on the description. The box mock up has a corner section that says "RED GIMMICK."

Here is the ad wording lifted directly from the print brochure - I have not heard of this before so I hope I'm not repeating a prior post:

SIGN OFF - It's time to put your own signature on your Magic!

Sign Off is an incredibly eye popping routine with a visual vanish of a signature that happens right in front of your spectators but looks like a camera trick!

This is a real world worker.

The gimmick is just so cool.

The vanish looks incredible.

The signature can vanish and reappear at your command and is totally at your control.

How similar to Spot by Sandy is it?
Message: Posted by: DamienMagic (May 19, 2011 02:43PM)
Spot is a great trick intact we both credit the trick on the DVD as it inspired this trick

Looks great - I'm assuming a DL somewhere in the routine after signature, but I dig the visuals.

I wonder if the method is at all similar to Stave Haynes Toosh? Just guessing... But really nice.

Thanks as usual Peter - and now here is the ad copy in all it's typical Alakazam glory:

t's time to put your own signature on your magic!



Damien O'Brien and Leon May have come up with an obscenely visual effect!!



Sign off is an incredibly Eye-Popping routine with a visual vanish of a signature that happens right in front of your spectators eyes but looks like a camera trick!



Effect



A card is selected and signed on the face by your spectator. The card is now held between your spectators palms. You select a card for yourself, and sign or initial it on the back. now in full view of your spectator you visually make your signature vanish. This really has to be seen to be believed. There is absolutely no cover, the signature just goes. It's so good you will fool even yourself!!



You state that it's impossible to just make it vanish (after all it needs to go somewhere) you point to the card in your spectators hand. He slowly lifts his hand to see his signature on the face and just wait for the reaction when he finally gets the nerve to turn the card over to see your signature has arrived on the back of his card.



This really is a real world worker. The gimmick is just so cool. The vanish looks incredible. The signature can vanish and reappear at your command and is totally at your control.



Included in the box



Afull instructions DVD which covers routines, handling tips &step by step details on how to construct additional Sign Off Gimmicks.



2 X Sign Off Gimmick



4 X Custom Printed Sign Off Stickers



Additional Supplies so you constructed your own replacement or additional gimmicks.



Add Sign Off to your act today and start blowing minds with one of the most visual card tricks ever!!

I hope it lives up to the hype... Unlike The Hawk 2.0.
No thanks on the pre-order (never again!) - I'll wait for
a few reviews.
Message: Posted by: DamienMagic (May 25, 2011 03:21PM)
It works a lot better then the hawk. I promise you that
Message: Posted by: saysold1 (May 25, 2011 06:24PM)
Alakazam/Peter Nardi rarely disappoint - and very often surpass expectations. Looking forward to seeing and hearing more about this one.
Message: Posted by: iluzjonista (May 26, 2011 04:36AM)
I quess that the card with dissapearing signature can not be examined which is not too practical. How similar this is to Metamorphose by Mickael Chatelain?
Message: Posted by: DamienMagic (May 26, 2011 08:08AM)
My self Leon and peter show a way that the signed card can be handeled and checked and there no big moves very easy to perform :)
Message: Posted by: DamienMagic (May 28, 2011 07:57AM)
Hey guys if you still not seen the trailer for this trick yet be sure to check it out its also available for pre order too http://www.alakazam.co.uk/product-Sign-Off-By-Damien-Obrien-and-Leon-May.html any questions about this effect feel free to ask and ill try to answer it the best I can
Message: Posted by: TheStoner (May 29, 2011 03:41AM)
I don't normally preorder things, been bitten too often in the past, but it's worth it for this one - get your name down!
Message: Posted by: Up_in_smoke (May 29, 2011 12:32PM)
Can this be added to the end of an excisting routine, where there is already a signed card in play?

Sean
Message: Posted by: matt.magicman (May 29, 2011 03:33PM)
Hi damien
this looks good, I'm tempted to go for the pre order
I currently use the ungimmicked version ( think you used to work this too?)bit like "scoop" off the icandy dvd
I guess you have replaced it with this now....
how much room is there for the signature that disappears?
are you limited to just the 2 small initials as in the demo, or could you fir a 3-4 letter first name?
wish you all the best with the project
cheers mate

Message: Posted by: DamienMagic (May 30, 2011 06:12AM)
I have done ones where a signed card is in play but I prefer to do it as a single routine far more effective but your come up with loads of ideas

As for size the way we made it you prob can do a 4 leter name . I used scoop too lee smith showed me the routine was great very visual but this is the inju signature transpo for me now lol I hope your have fun with it :)
Message: Posted by: NFW (Jun 3, 2011 03:18PM)
The trailer looks amazing - loath to pre order until we can read a review. but hope it lives upto the hype !!

It looks really good, but it reminds me of "Metamorphose by Mickael Chatelain".
I just ask this question again: How simmilar is it to it? :)

Hope it's possible to give an answer without exposing the method.

Thanks!

I'm only selling it just because it doesn't work for my style is all. The trick itself looks great and the gimmick is pretty cool. Damien and Leon do a great job of explaining the trick. You get more then enough of the stuff to make additional gimmicks . Plus most magicians I reckon already have some of this stuff laying around. As far as angles go pretty good. The original handling is great. And the trick with the signature from card to card is really cool.
