Topic: FATHOMS
Message: Posted by: PROF BC (Jan 18, 2017 11:12AM)
Over the ECSS III weekend, Vic (Gemini Artifacts) unveiled something that is really very special indeed. This is a book (a very fine looking book) and a few highly collectible, elderly tickets associated with the launch of Titanic. He calls the effect FATHOMS, and it is a real winner.

The props I will only say come up to the (extremely high) standard that you have come to expect from Vic Nadata, but it is the thinking behind FATHOMS that really propels this effect into the highest echelon. FATHOMS features many, many variations, each hosting a wide swath of 'hits' that you are free to choose amongst as you create your Titanic moment. So much is here, in fact, that I truly do think that you could perform FATHOMS for the exact same audience several times and only make the event more mysterious and chilling.

What's more, Vic has done his research. These hits are not generic 'travelers' who may (or may not) have actually been aboard the doomed ship. The hits actually reveal people who experienced that event firsthand. It is all done with tact, grace, and immense respect for the victims of the tragedy (so much, in fact, that you could really perform FATHOMS as a memorial tribute to the victims and their families). And FATHOMS knows no differentiation in class; you might hit on anything from a steerage passenger to the richest man aboard (you just never know!)

The method is logical and simple to master, and the 'necessary business' of the routine is flawlessly incorporated.

So what is FATHOMS? It is nothing less than the famous misprinted version of the Titanic investigation--now devilishly 'misprinted' to further your own status as mystery performer! It is also a handful of collectible tickets (or at least reproductions of same) to view the Titanic launch. These are also meticulously researched (reproduced, as I understand it, from an actual such ticket that recently sold at auction).

FATHOMS is an extraordinary achievement, beautifully imagined and executed.

I suspect, too, that with very little thought you could pull in your favourite White Star routine--and, who knows, a few clips from the Cameron film--for a full Titanic evening.

==VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED==

I have just finished reading the instruction manual for this and it is indeed a most glorious effect! So many options to fit different performances. Some great routine are included - 2 awesome ones by Mr. Sinclair!

Some great thinking went into this and it looks amazing as always with Gemini products.

Two thumbs up!

Vic's past book tests (Ipswich2,etc) & effects like VRS are spine tingling making Fathoms a must have addition !

I am about 1/2 way through the manual and so far it's all awesome. I am going to have to mustify the book a bit though, it smells too new.
Message: Posted by: jaizon (Jan 18, 2017 04:18PM)
Yes! Mine arrives tomorrow. Really looking forward. So how does one go about "mustifying" a book? (if you don't mind)
Message: Posted by: Vic Nadata (Jan 18, 2017 04:50PM)
Thank you all for the kind words. FATHOMS should be hitting mailboxes any day now.

Bud, as for the smell, I do sometimes put a scent in the book. However I have received complaints in the past. Dammed if I do.......

I figure it was easier to add a scent than to remove it. For those that wish to add a scent to the book or to any prop for that matter, I have found that:

http://www.froggysfog.com/scents/scent-sprays-scented-cologne/scented-cologne-spray.html#.WH_viYWcGP8

is perfect.

I primarily use MILDEW and HAUNTED HOUSE. BE WARNED - use a very small amount. It is best if you spray the scent on a card, then place the item you want to smell in a box with the card.

I hope that helps and allows you get the best version of FATHOMS that you can!

Enjoy

This is sorely tempting. I've got a great real life hook to the story myself. My wife's great grandparents came over from Europe in 1912. After making their way from Denmark to England, they were all set to board a ship to cross to the US. But they got bumped, as the ship was full, so they had to catch the next ride. The ship they were bumped from was the Titanic.
Message: Posted by: Vic Nadata (Jan 19, 2017 09:11AM)
What a great "IN" Chris! A few people in my research were bumped from and to the Titanic. At that time in History a coal strike was going on, and lots of passengers were seeking other ways to get across the Atlantic. Very cool.

I have one book on my shelf that has that Musty old book odor, I take the book I want to "Mustify" and interleave the pages of the two books and let it sit for about a week and that usually does the trick.

Yes, I just got Fathoms this past weekend at ECSS III and it is worth the hype! In fact, it needs more hype! The cards/tickets look great and it is a wonderfully conceptualized book test! I have an entire Titanic show that this will perfectly enhance and I believe complete.

My first scheduled Titanic show is Valentine's Day weekend and I cannot wait to show it off there!

It would be best if your spectator can read and understand basic English. FATHOMS gives you a choice of revealing a name, but can easily use an object as well that one of the passengers was carrying. A pocket Watch, rings etc.

Yes, it looks very nice. Marc Charisse made a beautiful Inferno switch box for me so I'm familiar with his fine work.

I posted here because I thought other early purchasers might have the same question. I didn't realize I was committing a faux pas. Sorry

After reading through much of the manual I'm also very impressed by this. The method is great and the detail put into it - the people and their stories etc. - is mightily impressive. Waiting eagerly for it to make the trip across the seas.

I already plan on using it at some stage after an introductory performance of 'White Star' (I bought some period coins to flesh this out.) And what music will be playing ever so gently in the background? The wonderfully evocative 'The Sinking of the Titanic' by Gavin Bryars, which I was lucky enough to see him perfom live a few years back at the Barbican here in London. Though, for those who know the effect, for dramatic purposes, I don't say what the piece is called until after the 'secret' of the fairly sorted piles of photos is revealed...And then enter 'Fathoms'

Thanks to the creators for a thing of beauty.

Best,
Francis

I can't thank you guys enough for your response to this effect. It has been a labor of love for almost a year and Vic did a stunning job bringing this to life. The BC routine plays so well in performance that words really don't do it justice. This has produced very emotional reactions in my show and I hope you all have as much fun performing this I do.

Cheers,

Not at all! A gorgeous piece and tremendously evocative. I didn't realise it was produced by Eno of whom I'm quite a fan, so thanks for that. I cannot wait to use it as background for a combined 'White Star'/'Fathoms' performance at some point.

Speaking of which...the book just arrived and it is a thing of beauty indeed. A really lovely thing to 'casually' take off the shelf. I've already noted above that the mechanics are excellent and now it's in hand, I'll go through the rest of the performance suggestions/routines in detail. A beautiful, beautiful thing. Vic has done an amazing job, as usual, and I always love the black paper and string wrapping he uses. Gemini Artifacts are always the very best of gifts (to myself!) to unwrap.

Thanks for sharing the creativity.

Best,
Francis

Francis, I opened my book and tickets today as well. Yes, Gemini Artifacts does a wonderful job of presenting their props. Opening them is a treat.

The book is magnificent, aged perfectly and a quality production through and through. I didn't think I would like the tickets being sealed in plastic, but now that I see and feel them, it seems totally logical that someone would preserve them in this fashion. A museum certainly would not, but an amateur collector would. And the plastic film makes them easy to handle, and obviously more durable.

I also ordered the switch box from Gemini Artifacts by Mr. Charisse and it is one his best boxes to date (I have quite a few as I am obsessed with boxes). I functions perfectly, but looks innocent and genuinely resembles a period souvenir. The box is designed to be just the right size so the cards fit comfortably, but allow enough room for the performer's fingers to reach in and remove the cards without any fumbling.

Just a sweet kit all the way around. Nice job again GA team!

I would not advise trying to pass the tickets off as anything other than an excellent reproduction (which they are). As Vic points out in his instructions, a real ticket recently sold for about $58,000 dollars - a fact easily checked with a quick Google search. But having them in Marc's box and spinning a story about how you got them through some Titanic memorabilia website will fly right by. IMHO

After having worked with Fathoms for awhile I can truly say I love it. When performed in dark lighting, candles, a spirit lamp, rapping noises, you know, pull out all the stops, it scares the heck out of people. I've been using it conjunction with Whitestar as a kind of warm up, and together, they make a great theme for an evenings entertainment. Great job, Vic. This is priceless! If anyone has any ideas about other Titanic themed effects they do, I'd love to hear it. You can PM me anytime.

Been working feverishly on my Fathoms presentation. I can not recommend this prop enough. It looks and feels real, aged to perfection and it just makes sense. Aiden Sinclair includes 2 excellent routines and Prof BC included one as well. Great thinking gentlemen, thank you very much! I am pulling elements of all 3 suggested presentations and adding some of my own stuff as well (of course). This is a very workable piece and we all know audiences love Titanic stuff. Fathoms plays perfectly as a follow up effect for White Star. Also, thank you Vic for a perfect "in" to select the spirit. Great props for this are included with the effect (reproduction Titanic tickets). I'm so pleased with Fathoms that I have decided to make it the closer for my new show. A Dinner theater presentation on Connecticut Hauntings. So how does a Titanic effect fit into a Connecticut show? Glad you asked. Turns out one passenger was a CT resident and did not survive the disaster. He will be my contacted spirit and everything is real and Google proof. Heck, now I can encourage folks to Google my contacted spirit (Nice suggestion Aiden). When you order, be sure to add Marcs excellent switch box.

I'm seriously thinking of the getting Fathoms. Not sue if this was explained before:

"It contains a complete listing of nearly half of those who perished in the icy waters of the North Atlantic on that horrible night to remember."

I know it's a long shot and no one would ask why there is only half but out of curiosity - is there a reason?
Message: Posted by: steven-gibson (Mar 22, 2017 12:57PM)
The book is a record of bodies collected by HMS Mackey Bennett 10 days after the sinking. So bodies not recovered in that effort are not listed. That is how I would explain it.

Been wanting to get this but putting off as other items persisted to abscond my FATHOMS money.....lol, just put my order in for this & took advantage of Vic's free shipping weekend special. Just downloaded manual & flipped thru it quickly. A very in depth manual & performance ideas to work with, I can see the time put into this project / effect & WOW, wished I had gotten this earlier as I am doing a little WS thingy for friends this weekend at Easter dinners Sat & Sun get together as a memorial personal performance as I have always had a fascination with the Titanic long before Titanic I effects have.

One thing I have noticed thru out the year(s) that when ever I have been around family or friends get together's or hang outs times with others, the Titanic will some how pop up here or there & the interest always becomes a main interest & topic for a bit. I have Emily's revenge & wallet with me at all times for this reason & tie it in with my family background from England. I will do ER 1st & have WS & Titanic cards with me (use one or the other as I feel ) & then use one of them, after the alive or dead reveal I finish with ER letter & the reactions have always been "off the hook" !!

With Fathoms,although won't be carrying around like the other 2, in a planned sit down situation, Fathoms will be really shattering minds & with the rest of my "artifacts" items & ER, WS / Titanic !!
Wished I had the extra for Marc's box but will probably get that down the road after Vic kills me with the newest AM items & Prof's Alice Dopps......LoL

My FATH@MS will be arriving in the UK soon. The manual is so indepth and full of fantastic ideas.

I will be using an adapted sven pad, aged to look like a log book used on the Mackay to ensure my spectator selects the character I want.

This also means I don't have to, if I don't want, to memorise all of the characters at once. I will be making up a number of log books with at least three characters entry numbers on every force page. Seems natural enough to use a log book of this sort to select a person. What do you think?
Message: Posted by: Paul Forster (Apr 20, 2017 08:15AM)
If anyone would like to see my system for the sven pad force i.e; numbered pages with character numbers then please let me know and I will email you a screen shot of what I have set up.
Message: Posted by: Paul Forster (Apr 20, 2017 04:24PM)
A few of you have been in touch about the above post, I hope you find it useful. It is also worth noting that the force characters in the book can be found using this website https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/titanic-victims/ it even has the details in about their personal items and F@thoms book descriptions. I will be using this website to have a second spectator help to search for the spirit coming through. There is more detail on the website and may help to verify your story/facts.

I think this will help build the story. I searched for all of the force entries and most of them can be found, some names spelt differently or even wrong first name altogether but you can put this down to a misprint. I've done a lot of research on this and have recently been to the titanic exhibition in Liverpool for some inspiration. I work in the museum industry and am going to get my hands on some voice recordings of first hand accounts from some of the survivors. I'll play these recordings before the show begins to help build an atmosphere.

I haven't even got the book yet and I have my whole show planned. Really excited to get this.

Yupp, tomorrow an after dinner and drinks, intimate, at the table presentation...and close enough for a sort of memorial anniversary this month!

Using Fathoms as follow-up to my special adaptation of "WhiteStar" wherein I do not mention TitNic until the last moment of reveal. First step is giving one spec a "special token" (an antique pocket watch)..."to be explained shortly" and other spec an 1887 worn Morgan dollar. After the sorting procedure ( with appropriate patter about "intuition", "experiencing energy from holding these special objects"...then the reveal is prefaced with the explanation that the objects were "allegedly recovered from (pointing to the pocket watch) a bursar on the ill-fated Titanic ocean liner (the first mention of it here), used by him to time the loading of the lifeboats (survivors) and the coin (pointing to it) was allegedly one belonging to a brother who flipped with his younger brother to see which of them would be the last one to load on a lifeboat that had only room for ONE more occupant"!
I then turn over the sorted photos, survivors first and show how each spec fared in their "intuitive" sorting. At the time I begin to explain the tokens and first say the name, "Titanic", I also bring out a copy of a vintage 1912 Boston Globe newspaper I have and place it where the "discard pile" had been, pushing aside the discard pile and casually mixing them in the process. At this structure of the reveal I have always gotten a great response,..often very emotional....and then can lead into discussion, thoughts, comments regarding what (WTF) has just happened and at times a perusal, of the newspaper along with the conversation.

Then the perfect "stage" is set to follow up with Fathoms!
Message: Posted by: Paul Forster (Apr 28, 2017 05:12AM)
I received my Fa@thoms this week, it arrived quicker than expected and was presented in such a beautiful fashion. The book is exquisitely made from the marble pages, the font, layout and cover pages with so much detail that it is a real book. There will be no eye brows raised that this is a trick book, it is a book, nothing more. But there is so much more to it...

I stumbled across this website where the books information came from https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/titanic-passenger-list/ I will be using this website in my routine, having a second spectator verify and check the information that is coming through from the spirit world. This adds another layer of credibility to the story. It also helps as there is information on the website that isn't in the book. It helps build a great story combining the both the book and website.

I will be using a specially adapted sven pad in order to force the characters on my spectator. I have chosen six characters to force all of whom are listed on the website, some of their info in the book is wrong, such as a first name is incorrect or spelt differently. This adds to the story that this book was a misprint and the info on the site can clarify any errors in the book.Some of the characters int eh book do not appear on the website so I chose six that do. The book will be aged and presented as though it was from the CS Mackay-Bennett, used by a crew member to document the bodies brought on board.

Using the sven pad I can force one of six people or all six if I want to. One pumping question and I know who they have picked. Many of you have already been in touch about this method and I have shared the set up with you. I hope this is helpful.

I too, like Doc Ben, will be using "WhiteStar" as my opener and with Docs handling which he shared with me earlier. I think it is great that owners of this book share their thoughts and ideas.

The tickets that come with the book are also a thing of beauty. As real as one would hope for. I also will be going down the lines that they are reproduction. I won't be using them as a force but will place them along side a collection of artifacts from the time. I have also bought a teachers pack of titanic memorabilia to use in the routine. You can find them very cheap on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Titanic-Memorabilia-Gift-Pack-with-over-20-pieces-of-Replica-Artwork-/272646144842?hash=item3f7afa034a:g:7YUAAOSw--1WrOhF this is the link.

I will also be using my hobbs box and adapting it to suit my story. I have a potential gig at the maritime museum in Liverpool where they have a whole titanic exhibition. I would love to place my hobbs box with bell inside a locked cabinet with a card describing the item, it will not look out of place. Then the bell can ring from inside the cabinet! This will make for a great moment I think.

Anyway, the F@thoms set is just incredible and I will be using it in a forthcoming seance evening in a couple of months time.

Thanks to Vic and all those involved for producing such an amazing piece of work. You help make our jobs a whole lot more special and real.

Paul.

Performed after dinner and drinks last Friday my Whitestar version and used Paul's idea with a Svenpad for a intro to the Fathoms"choice"/force. Had one of those great "happy surprises"/incidents as I had decided to only use two "victims", a #6 force person (figuring chances are I could get a "two-fer" out of the "the young lovers" and only 1/3 of the pad set for #7, the elderly lady "Rebecca". Guess what, my female spec chose the elderly lady force person...but after my one brief "fishing" statement about"not seeming to be a youth"...she stated, "This is really spooky"...and (since I knew the spec's nickname was "Becky") I immediately went into a reveal of the name, the elderly, "Rebecca"...!! Woo-hoo,..great reactions,...before I even went into the rest of the reveal.
Overall Fathoms is a beautiful and fantastically crafted, sooo credible "prop"...and lends opportunity for lots of adaptation, addiional props (which I included) and fits wonderfully as a follow-up to Whitestar!

I printed my tickets & used a pouncing wheel I have for making patterns for airbrush & pinstriping. Its an older one with round needles on a wheel, I use a ruler where I want the perforations. Works perfectly !!
You can find pounce wheels at any art supply shop, I think the newer wheels have square type needles on a wheel, I looked on line & that's what it looked like the were.....
