Richard Sanders is one of the most creative magician on this planet.
I really don't know how he does it.A very clever and modest person.
My order is in.

Hi Gang,

I have to admit that when Richard releases a new routine, I get all tingly inside. I'm talking "14-year-old-schoolgirl-seeing-Zac-Efron-walk-through-the-food-court-at-her-local-mall" tingly. In other words, I'm one of his biggest fans!

Everything he markets, and I own most of it, is so well thought out, so audience tested, and so practical, I'd feel comfortable buying it without ever seeing a review, let alone a trailer. I know it's going to be a worker and I know it's going to be strong. He's earned that trust from me over the years.

That being said, when I watch a trailer of one of his effects, or any effect I'm thinking of trying out, I want to see the REMEMBERED EFFECT. That is, the effect the spectator sees and remembers, or at least the effect they THINK they see and remember. That's really the only thing that matters. I want to see their REACTION, more than the EXACT procedure used to get there.

I definitely want to see the bare bones of the routine, to get a feel for its timing and flow, but to see everything that takes place, especially in the trailer, is only going to make you watch it like a magician. It makes you biased, and robs you of the routine's real potential.

Obviously, a card is selected. Obviously, the card is signed. Obviously, it's replaced in the deck. Obviously, "something" is secretly done. However, the spectators don't remember ANY of this. All they remember is that the marks vanish, reappear on their signed card, and then change into their name! They could care less about the "technical journey". But we all know that, don't we?

One last, very important thing to remember- when you buy a Richard Sanders routine, you're not just "buying a trick". You are buying a pretty nice chunk of his life, too. You're buying the countless hours of trial and error, and the hundreds of performances for living and breathing human beings. You're buying the first 50 times he performed it where it "just didn't feel right". You're buying the second 50 times when he thought it was "almost there". Finally, you're buying all the performances after that, where the spectators go running and screaming.

All I have to do is learn his tried-and-true routine, add my own touches and personality to it, and I'm ready to go. He's done all the hard work for me and I appreciate that...

Best,

Chad

You beat me to it Robert. Chad knows a winner when he sees one. To anyone new to cards and close up, just read what Chad wrote again-priceless.
To anyone who is frustrated by the trailor being in segments, I say tough. In an age where so much crapiola is being punted out, it is a pleasure to see one of the finest close up pros in the world releasing such a superb piece of memorable commercial card magic.

Have a great day guys.

I agree. Sander's "Named" required you to be a contortionist! (Well, I'm exaggerating, of course, but it's effects like that which require a lot of memory work of the moves to get it right and smooth. One wrist turn in the wrong place and you've blown it. A lot of Sankey effects fall in the same category. And when you know several of these, the moves are so similar that you can get the moves from one effect confused in your mind with another effect. That can be devastating!

But I digress.

Anyway, I think this looks a bit cleaner than his "named" but the effect seems to be equally killer, possibly even better. Plus he includes tons of variations.

Richard is THE MAN! I ordered this on first view! C'mon Richard, hit me! Oh yeah, baby!
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.
