I have been showing mostly Keymaster until now, but today I used both the Keymaster and the Gatekeeper routines at the same gig. Great, great reactions from children, adults and old people! Everybody can relate to the moving and disappearing holes. At one gig a girl saw the Keymaster effect and later asked me to perform it again for her mother. Then I did (a slightly modified version of) Gatekeeper. So good to have two different routines with the same props!

A friend of mine has come up with a way of resetting Keymaster. This is very important for me when I'm doing walkaround.

The Keymaster key set has now earned a permanent place in my right front pocket, sadly replacing Third Degree Burn, which I trained and trained but never used.

Interesting, Craig, that you have tried Pro Flite together with Keymaster. I was thinking of that too, but haven't invested in it yet. Originally had Ghost tag in the key set as well, but had to drop that. Pro Flite definitely seems like it would fit very well there. If anyone has other ideas for tricks or gimmicks you could add to the key set, I would like to hear them.

Hey Doug, thanks for your feedback

Don't feel bad I have lost count of the amount of people that the Ghost Hole Principle has fooled. It is such a simple addition to the routine that really adds to the overall effect.

Let me know how things go once you have performed it a couple of times. If there is anything else I can do just let me know

Craig


Craig, the only thing I would add is that the method you gave of keeping the Ghost Hole in place really doesn't hold all that well if you are walking around with key master in your pocket for a while. It loosens up too easily. I pull the key out and the hole is not there. (The key magically healed itself in my pocket!) What I am doing instead is using a minuscule bit of Scotch brand reusable glue stick. Just a tiny touch to the hole and it holds much, much better.

Another suggestion: Instead of taking the time and effort to color those holes with a Sharpie marker, one can purchase origami paper that is colored black on both sides. You could get hundreds, maybe thousands of holes out of a sheet. And the thickness of the paper is perfect.

The trade off is that you spend more money, but you save time. All depends on where your priorities and budget are.

Re-stickable glue stick is what I use to keep the ghost hole in place.

I have been performing a shortened version of the Gatekeeper routine that has gone over well. I slide the ghost hole off the key, have them cup their hands, and then throw the hole back onto the key but it ends up on the stem. Also before I slide the hole off the key I put my key fob back into my pocket which allows me to end completely clean at the end.

Hey Guys.

Once again thanks for the continued feedback. I have been given alternative handlings and ideas via pm and email, its been great. So many people have said the same as Moechsle that the set has found a permanent place in their act. Its great to hear that people are using Keymaster.

As for the Ghost Hole, I have never had a problem Doug but both yours and Sabitu's solutions seems great. I also like your handling of Gatekeeper Sabitu - Simple and Quick sounds killer, I would love to see you perform it sometime if ever we are at the same convention!

Once again any other comments of questions please keep them coming

Thanks again for the comments Doug. Can't to hear what you think of it when it arrives.

By the way I have noticed that Sleight Geek have filmed their own trailer to Keymaster and posted it on You Tube. I thought I would post the link so that you guys can see someone other than me performing the effect. I thought they did a good job

Just a quick observation from a spectator's point of view (I do not own the trick, yet). It seems in the clip that the finish is somewhat unsatisfying--the girl seemed to expect the hole to finally wind up in the right place--perhaps this possibility is addressed in the 2.0 package?

Thanks Doug, I'm glad you are enjoying the DVD. I love getting feedback from people that are actually using my material!

Julie - I have never had a problem with the spectator expecting the hole to appear on the stem and neither has any performer I have spoken to. I am not not sure but I have a feeling the girl in that video clip was 'in on' the trick from the beginning.

Hey mate.

I am currently typing up a few ideas into a PDF which I will be sending to anyone who has brought keymaster. It is taking longer than I thought as I have had a lot of gigs this week (I took on a contract to do a series of school shows so I have been very busy during the day). The PDF should be done soon and anyone who would like a copy just pop your email address on this thread and I will send it as soon as its done.

Hope that's ok

I am the one that won the Keymaster DVD! Thanks Craig! I heard my username and like I said in an earlier post I thought I won the Lottery. (I basically did!) It just stinks now that we have to wait another week for the next Review!
