A few days ago I saw on a TV program a very cool effect. A man drew his address map on his business card a then he made a hole in the busines card (in front his address) and he moved the hole across the card and finally got it out of the card. Could anyone give me more info? Is easy to perform? Where can I buy it?
Thanks
Alejandro

I don't have it but know how it works. I wouldn't say it is difficult but it still deserves its practice time.

No, there is no video demo on the net. Look into the workers series- or go to L and L publishing and look in their video sale. They still had some of Mike Close's video's that last I checked.

Hello:

You can also purchase the effect separately from Michael Close at his website. I think it's about $15.00 - http://www.michaelclose.com

Is it suitable for a beginner?

Sure. Can you draw lines on a business card with a marking pen? That's all the skill you need.

And... the ability to remember what to say.
