Hi all

Just a quick note that my Flatline control is now released.

It's a control of a card with no control
No moves or sleight of hand
Pure brute misdirection.

Bold deception at it's best.

This is bold, it's blunt and it's very, very cheeky but if you're the sort of performer who can command an audience you will have no problem performing this and getting away with it.
The simplest control you'll ever learn but that doesn't mean it's easy - bring a nice big pair of balls with you and you'll do well with it, the first time you get away with it you will probably wet yourself laughing inside.

This control is very very good. So bold, but so effective. You are a genius Rus Smile

When you start in magic, there are several things that you think don't seem right. when executing a DL you think there is no way the spectator isn't going to notice that, the more you perform you realise no they are not going to notice. If you perform a top change half the battle is being confident that it is going to be fine. flatline appears to me to be in a very similar area.
if you get this watch the attached movie first before you doing anything else, don't even look at the PDF. make up your mind and then read the instructions.

Rus, you are a very naughty boy

Hi All
 
Firstly thanks for all your comments regarding this mad control, this was a challenge I set myself awhile back to create a card control that used NO MOVES, I see card controls being released all the time and yes they look great with fancy swirling cards and amazingly quick sleights……. BUT
 
What ever happened to using brute misdirection, the magician/performers most useful tool in this art?
 
This is what I wanted to achieve with this, a control that used NO MOVES, NO FANCY SLEIGHTS, NO DOUBLES.

Great job Mr. Andrews! I love this. I've always been a sucker for the pure balls moves and effects. I can't wait to have fun performing this Smile

And this is something that WILL be fun to perform. This is also quite heavily based on psychology. Which is another thing I love. Basically I'm trying to say that I love this "control" and I will be using it.....I will probably use it in about 5 minutes for a group of magic friends. Can't wait to see how well this goes over.

Ok, I have to tell you, this control is hilarious! It must be so much fun to perform it, I want to do it right away. Now this control really is a challenge, but this makes it fun. It is rare to see such bold deception nowadays. Indeed there are countless methods out there for controling a card, but this solution is fabulous! Highly recommended for workers, to have fun with it.
Rus, I bet you feel awesome every time you do this! Smile

Cheers!
Andrew

Well I must say- I can only mirror what others are saying here. I just viewed the video and read the pdf and just sat here shaking my head while grinning. This is not for the meak, but as it is stated- BOLD IS BEAUTIFUL! It's almost refreshing in a sense to know what you can accomplish with NO sleights. Hats off to you Rus! Slowly changing the direction of magic with some of your work! Another great buy for the price. You guys and gals have to check this out.

Hi
 
Thanks again for the feedback guys, I think the hardest part about this control is actually keeping a straight face once you get away with it……..
 
I remember the first time I did it, I just wanted to burst into laughter as I couldn’t believe I had gotten away with something so IN THEIR FACE, but when I went back and thought about what I had just done, maybe it’s this reason that it worked so well and was just not seen.
 
You know the saying “IT WAS STARING AT YOU IN THE FACE” yet you don’t see it?
 
I have a whole project I'm working on spiralling around this plot and hope to bring to you very soon
 
Anyone else wanting to get their mits on flatline its available here:

I did this control for two people. One was a magician one was a layman. It completely flew by the layman. And when I performed it for the magician, he didn't know what hit him! He was SO fooled!! I love this.

Picked this up today. Very nice Rus!

Putting this to use tonight will certainly challenge my "testicular fortitude!"

You mention James Brown in the credits; this is certainly something I could see him doing- misdirection at it's best.

I have to mirror what everyone else is saying.

I have viewed the pdf and am ready to road test it tonight to 2 magician friends.

cant wait.

this is short, simple, and sweet.

when I released mental communicator, it is a bit jazz mentalism, but a bit bold, since you could be wrong, but this fits right up my alley

great job rus

If you do this right it could be a good one to do for magicians, it's goes so far that it's not what they will be thinking.

thanks for this Rus, I could see some people not knowing what to do with this but get over it and blow people away!

as it is a control it can be used anywhere you need something done with a card so it's really versatile, no extra props or anything, you just need to do it

those internal laughing moments keep doing tricks fresh, good fun to perform
