I am really asking me ... when is Andrew sleeping?
Three websites, lectures and now his newest trick is coming soon!

TEAR DOWN
Tear Down is my brand new totally impromptu (I mean totally impromptu!) newspaper tear based on Jim Steinmeyer’s Incessant Newspaper (with his permission). It’ll be hitting streets in about a week.
You want this. Trust me. Once you learn it you’ll be a newspaper tearing fiend. You can do it anytime, anywhere with any newspaper. No duplicates, no gimmicks, no tape, blah, blah blah.
You tear up a signed newspaper. Restore it. Then hand it back to the audience. Everything can be inspected.

I know it's been asked a million times on this Café, but I'll be the first for this effect. Where's the video?

Show us the STUFF, man!

I'm getting too old for patience. Reeling in the years, and gotta' make the most of every second.

Patience, supposedly a virtue, can cause you to wait your life away.

Walther,

Great find! I love Andrew's stuff and this looks like it could be another winner.

Amen to that.

I just watched the 'demo' video on HP. Seriously is that not one of the WORST demo's ever?
The name Jim Steinmeyer does make me want to buy this though.

Yes, demo snapshots don't instill confidence.

I don't understand why these demos are put up. They are supposed to get you excited about ordering. I think the opposite happens.

A terrible snapshot video attempt Smile Smile

Maybe it is too bad for a real demonstration.

It's not that the video didn't turn me off to the effect. I'm still open minded, it's just that it really did not show me anything.

I'm sure the effect, considering the usual quality of Andrew's releases, is probably killer. It's just that the video doesn't demonstrate that for us in a convincing way.

The format they used (snapshots) does not reach out and grab you by the scruff of the neck and scream "Buy this effect!!!"

My guess is that this is a teaser video, and the demo video is yet to come.

My guess, that as a magician you would figure out how the trick works and not buy it.
Not saying it's not a good trick and I am sure it would fool laymen, but maybe not magicians.
That's usually the case with these types of videos.

Andrew is a talented guy. I just have a problem with bad demos.

That demo is aweful. Demo videos should show the whole effect, from start to finish. Magic companies need to learn that. There is no need for flashy demos.

You can find Jim's original effect (upon which this is based) in his book "Conjuring Anthology".
And you can rest assured that if Jim's given his blessing to Andrew's additions or modifications, it will be $15 well spent.

And if you don't have Jim's book, get it! It's a wealth a wonderful material.
It's all in the reflexes.
