No. Not a problem. Just that I already purchased S.E. years ago, and don't really want to spend the bucks again just for the presentation angle.

I kinda-sorta like this a lot! It looks great. My only warning is to those who aren't inclined to DIY projects. I consider myself a good prop maker and still this gave me some problems. Nothing that had me throwing stuff across the room in a rage but I did have to monkey with the design a few times to get it to work well. Once it does, however, it's really quite remarkable. Basically, I found it worked better to "double up" on some thicknesses in the construction.

I can see someone younger and a lot less lazy than I taking this concept and really building something cool with it. Even inches away you can't see what's making it work. Really nice. Just a wee bit fussy to build is all.

The times I built my own in the past I found the materials that are used in the construction get old and can experience "rot" or stretch, making it necessary to reconstruct the gimmick periodically.

In other words after it gets old, it don't work as good. It loses it's power to elevate the pack.

That is not a bad thing. Steve can't help that. But be aware that once you build one (not hard to do) It will only last for so long before you have to rebuild.

I haven't put this together yet but I will later today. Looks great and the method is very clever. Can't wait to put this to use.....

I purchased the download and so after having watched it once, I went out bought the materials needed and built two all within a couple of hours. The second gimmick allowed for greater height. I took it to my restaurant gig to test it for my halloween set and it got good reactions. I didn't do the ghost story, but rather the psychic powers story, and it was well received.

Where is all the buzz and hype for this great effect? I have seen so many other tricks with multiple pages of posts that don't come close to this effect.

It's just so hard to read over everything and write comments about all the great effects. Plus I have to keep looking over my shoulder to make sure my boss doesn't catch me.

I recently purchased Legend from Downloadmagic.com. The effect is pretty good, but the construction of the gimmick requires prescision on the part of the creator. So far, it's amazed everyone I've performed it for.

I got fooled, twice when my favorite local magic shop demonstrate that to me. Highly recommended.
Most memorable moment - with Maestro Juan Tamariz & Consuelo Lorgia in FISM Busan 2018.

Two questions...

How is the reset?

And can this gimmick/idea be used on items other than cards (i.e. cigarette packs, gum packs, etc.)?

Thanks,

Brian

SOOOO glad I found this thread. This effect looks outstanding. I'm glad the harder the gimmick is to build the less will be performing it. Makes sense I never heard a buzz on this. Requires actual analog skill. Like building you're own furniture from IKEA, not impossible, but boy does it take time out of you're day. Worth it in the end. This is the same. I can already picture blending this effect and its story, with Haunted/Haunted 2.0. Imagine, the box floats out of the cellophane, then the card eerily creeps out of the deck. Something to ponder.
Posting ever so slightly.

Received the dvd two days ago, made a prototype which worked but I was not fully satisfied.
30 minutes ago I gave it another try and wow! Just like in the demo Smile
Really like it, can see myself using it.
