Sounds good. Eugene Burger does in fact have a great reason for changing the bills back to paper or clippings in one of his booklets which is also in his book
'Mastering the Art of Magic'


Reasoning is important. Being authentic is key.
If you tell someone you can change small bills into One Hundred Dollar bills, then actually demonstrate it by doing so, they may gather that you can do it "all the time," and want to keep your bills. Why wouldn't they?

David Blaine actually let the spectators keep the bills. That ending made sense. In their mind he could do that all day/all night long. Granted, many may not be in the position to give away five hundred bucks so yes, reasoning is going to be key in however you decide to end.

I would love to hear more on other's reasoning for taking back the five hundred dollars after you demonstrated such a feat. You're the magician, the magic man, the magical one, you change $1 to $100's they then are given to the spectaors to check out/examine. Then........

I love pretty much anything Paul Harris has to do with. But will this compare to Extreme Burn? I can only hope.

I would too if I had a few, cool, million sitting in the bank. Smile Then again, I might just hand out the ones and be anti-climatic. *sigh*

Hi everyone,
Just got off the phone with Paul and everything that will be supplied with HandOut should be in our hands in about two weeks, so everything is moving along very smoothly and the trailer should be up well before that.

I showed Paul something of mine close to two years ago and he loved the idea,so He started asking many questions about what I could do and could not do with this thing and then we moved along to the task at hand(Astonishments).

I could not help but think about all the questions Paul had asked about my idea and what evolved was HandOut500.

So I sit on HandOut until I felt Paul had enough of a break from the time he put in from Astonishments and then I gave him a call.

S: Hi Paul
P: Hey Steve hows it goin?
S: Fine..I got something I want you to see.
P: Great, what is it?
S: It's a multi Bill Change.
P: What makes yours so special?????
S: You hand ALL the bills out at the end putting that oh so special element of in the spectators hands aspect to it.
p: I like that, but that has been played around with before.
S: Well it is also a totally new gimmick, designed with the handout in mind, the bills change front and back at the same time, giving more contrast to the change and it can be done surrounded with the bills showing no extra thickness, even under extremely close up conditions and the cost to build the gimmick besides the special things needed is a built in bonus as well, as it is a fraction of the cost, compared to the Easy Money Gimmick.
P: Now I'm interested again,send me a video.
Call ends.

So after the demo, I make Paul the new gimmick and send it his way with instructions, so he can put his hands on it.

And now here we are with HandOut500.

Since this is a totally new gimmick and not variations in handling of Pat Pages ingenious Easy Money gimmick (I think that has been covered quite well by Greg Wilson, Mark Allen, Carl Hein, Richard Sanders, and Tom Isaacson, just to name a few, and were all better off for their wonderful contributions) you can do things that are unique with the HandOut500 Gimmick and a hand out that is the cleanest and easiest (with many handling variations included), due to the construction of the new gimmick.

There are other features that are a big plus also,but I will hold off on those for now.

HandOut500 uses same size bills, just like other multi bill changes, but would love to see that cookie cracked without taking away from the effect and being universal (always believe it is possible).

Since HandOut500 was designed to be handed out first and foremost, you do not change them back... You hand them out, so the spectator can now feel and smell the moment as well.

If for some reason, you did not want to hand the bills out, that's ok you don't have to and you still have many unique features at work for you.

The Bonus effect is something that could have been released on it's own, so I hope you like that as well.

Hope I have helped,

Steve

How does the change look? Because as most of us know, Extreme Burn looks the nicest. Does this version maintain the visual aspect of the routine while allowing the bills to be handed out?

I am a little torn about this. On ONE hand, Paul Harris putting his name on anything makes me giggle like a little boy. BUT, and I don't know about the rest of you, I don't exactly feel I NEED to hand out the $100 bills after the transpo. I have done all the "500" variations and while I am excited and curious to see what this gimmick is, I am still a little hesitant to hand out big bucks. Though with MY routine I talk about how being a magician has its ups and downs...and I start off with $100s and do the routine opposite...going to $1 bills.

I'll never understand this kind of thinking. We've never been able to hand out the bills before and yet you already have an opinion about it without trying it out first.

That's like having never tried strawberries. And not doing so because you are currently satisfied with Blueberries. And then telling everyone that strawberries aren't for you. That's just silly. How do you know? You've never tried them before. Dost thou opine for the sake of opining? (not really looking for an answer to that)

I for one can't wait to hand them the bills. I'll bet it blows their friggin' minds. I think any worker will see the value of putting the bills in their hands.

Mr. Haynes - what kind of reactions/responses do you get when you hand them the bills?

I'm Harrey Hay and I'm outta here!!!

The thing is, we have been able to hand out the bills. When I perform, I always hand out at least 3 of the 5 bills. It's possible to hand out 4 of the 5. I don't know if it would matter if I handed out all 5, handing out 3 is a clear indication the bills are ordinary.

I will say this much...I know and admire Aaron Delong and his vast knowledge of magic and history. I consider it a great treat to be able to bounce stuff off of him and get his thoughts. Aaron has seen a lot of good AND bad magic and is sincere in what he says and doesn't sugar coat things.

With that being said, he was texting me and leaving me voice mails moments after seeing this done live by Steve. As he said above, he is very familiar with the plot and thought he knew what was coming. The way he described it to me was very visual and knocked him on his ***. Aaron doesn't embellish and exaggerate and I could tell by the tone on my voice mails, he was just kicked in the head. I personally can't wait to see it.

Now I will go back to pouting and fuming that I had gone to work out and had my phone in my pocket of my shorts and somehow in moving it got turned off....otherwise, I could have been with him to see it. First time in who knows how long my phone was actually powered off, was the night Steve Haynes was on my alma mater's turf frying minds. Dammit!!!!!!!
