Using his original effect Auspicious Coincidence as a jumping off point (Mendacity, 2005), Redford has taken his Any Card at Any Number to a whole new level.

Someone names (really) any card, another (really) any number. The performer asks if it would be impressive if that card were found at that number in the deck of cards he's been holding with a death grip. The audience of course agrees, but the performer admits it wouldn't be very impressive as he's been holding onto the deck the entire time and could have done something sneaky. What would be more impressive is if that card was found at that named position in a deck of cards that the performer's gone no where near. Better yet, its been in full view since before the effect began.

The closed box is tossed to an audience member who opens the box, removes the cards, and counts them one at a time face-up to find the named card at the exact named position.

* No Memorized Stack
* No Crib Sheets
* No Complicated Math
* No Force
* 100% Accurate
* Deck Examinable
* Virtually Moveless
* Ends Clean
* Quick Reset
* Easy to Do

There are three variations included in this special release:

Available as a Window Media File (WMV) Download ONLY.

Is the download the same as the d.v.d. that will be coming out? will the construction of the gaffs be explained step by step? Like I said in my previous post in the book some of the instructions were hard to understand. Finally will the sw---- move be shown in detail?

I just downloaded this.I believe this solution to ACAAN is pretty *** good. The instructions are pretty straight forward and it took me about an hour to construct the gimmicks. I have bought many ACCAN over the years since I have never devoted the time to memorized deck and I think this version is the one I will use.

I think your answer is silly. What he said is if the content in the download is that same as in the DVD. Not he want a DVD.

Parmenion my question was about content not the media differences. I have purchased downloads in the past that the content was different than the d.v.d. My post was not intended to fish out a method, as I stated I have mendacity and I have used A.C. in the past. If you felt my question was silly perhaps I did not make myself clear. Sorry I'l try to live up to you'r expectations in the future l.o.l.

I don't think we can blame Patrick for editing it slightly. He does need to hide a bit of the method. The only point that worries me is how much "shuffeling" or changing I have to do in order to get said card to said number - slight of hand is most deffinetly not my specialty. However I am really looking forward to this release; the line of "no, you shouldn't be impressed..." is just brilliant to me and is similar to how Osterlind makes people think he is about to use a deck before saying "let's not use the cards".

I do have one more question though, and it's about the gimmick itself. I have a rough idea of what the gimmick is and what it does, but I was wondering. Can the gimmick be on the table and have giant question marks on it? For example I'd love to start an evenings close-up show by just leaving a deck in full view, with a question Mark on it, and saying "that's for later" very mysteriously. Then later it transpires that the deck is for my final routine, the ACAAN. That would be superb.

I suspect I shall need to cut out the colour changing aspect of the cards, as I will have used the deck previously in the evening; so my audience will know I am using a red deck. If it was a single, stand alone effect, then the colour change would be far easier to pull off - atleast if the methodology works as I think it works.


shouldn't the answer to this be, BUY IT!

I'm a complete sucker for ACAAN routines. I've learned quite a few over the years. Based on my own needs, my favorite to this point has been Matthew Johnson's ACAAN, but I have a few things from Patrick Redford, find his material super compelling, so didn't even question getting this. I've only been through the instant download once, but really like what I see. Clever idea, well thought out routine, clear explanations, simple to do. It's a winner in my book.

Ok as promised here it is.....REVIEW

Patrick Redfords ACAAN

I am a big fan of ACAANs, and I currently use versions from Tommasso, Matthew Johnson, Silent Running, etc, etc.....and nwo out comes this one.

For the introductory price of $24.95, I thought, heck why not, lets see what Patricks version has to offer that the other versions don't have or lack.

The download sits at about 337MB or so, and the video is a little over an hour long.

The video starts with the demo you all have seen, and then patrick reviews the history, notes, and construction of the gimmick.

This is going to be a lot of fun to do, when I get the time, I am doing it right away.
I have several shows this week, but time permitting, Im starting on this right away.

After the construction phase, you get to see a performance piece of patrick actually performing the effect at the bar....whole routine.

patrick then goes over the whole performance routine you just saw, and breaks down the steps.

you can use a memorized stack if you wish or you don't really have to memorize anything.

I especially liked an idea by Tom Baxter that Patrick pointed out using cards, its awesome!

Patrick, then reveals the second version for stage.........and it looks so impossible!
You basically have a bag out in the audience from the start, and after then name a card and a number,
you pull out the cards inside that they have been holding the whole time, and the card is at the number....very clever!!

The final version is Patricks impromptu version of the effect which is also killer, and very nice, and you do need to execute a move, but patrick shows you how to do it....so no sweat!

All in all, this is a great download for $24.95.....I recommend it.

Content: 10/10
Clarity: 10/10
Gimmick Construction: 9/10
Notes, Psychology, and more 10/10
Effects: 10/10

Total: 9.8/10

Love it, and will be using it, once I make up the necessary items.

Way to go Patrick!

BTW I have never owned anything from Patrick in the past....

No instant download available. You have to wait for approval. I wonder what the time difference is? Probably middle of the night, so long wait.

I just got this and I am not disappointed. One of the best ACAAN effects I have purchased. Look forward to performing it.

The single best ACAAN routine I have ever seen performed. Given the fact that it works 100% of the time and 100% of the time it is "hands off" it is in a sense actually BETTER than the Berglas Effect (atleast if you believe, like me, that in most cases Berglas must touch the deck).

The explanations are simple and clear. The mathematical teaching is superb, especially if you chose to use Si Stebbins stack. The video quality is exactly how all videos should be for magic education, one man and a table. My only complaint is that Patricks patter is so good and clever that I doubt I will be able to resist stealing it completely. I shall just have to try my best to resist that urge.

After watching this download, I like Patricks thinking and workings so much that I feel physically attracted the man.

Go to agree with Eshla.

And add that at fifteen quid - this is a steal!

What a wonderful refreshing change it makes to see just how a magic instruction movie should be conveyed. You 'warm' to Patrick immediately. He leaves no stone unturned and oozes style instead of the pathetic inane chatter between two old buddies heading up Tangent Boulevard. (You all know who you are.) that we have become used to!

Excellent Patrick, truly excellent. I just need some patience now and get it all going!
