Hello Everyone,

After many requests we are finally able to offer limited supplies of The Utopia Card Frame produced with the kind permission of it's creator Mark Leveridge. Each unit is hand-made, built to last and finally holds poker sized playing cards. If you've ever wanted an alternative presentation for Card to Wallet, then this is it! Also perfect to use combined with our recent release "Childsplay" where a thought of card appears inside the frame!

You can see the effect in action here:

This is one of our FISM releases and we expect to sell out of the supplies that we have quite quickly. They are available to ship now with free worldwide shipping for a limited time.

Thanks again for your continued support.

I use an original one for my effect "childsplay" and it really really lifts the effect, but you have to use bridge sized cards, I'm so glad Russ has had these made I've ordered one straight away as they really are a great prop!

My mate Gary Jones has some cool routines with this prop, I think they are on the DVD?

Anyway, great work Russ, can't wait to get mine!

Hello Guys,

Skill level is easy I would say if you can palm a card. If you use Childsplay it's even easier!

Chris you should get yours today or tomorrow and I know you'll really like the design and fact that it holds up to poker sized cards. Thanks for the orders already guys.

Best,
Russ

Watched the clip, can you tell what the start of the trick is, the clip seems to show things at the end, meaning how was card selected, etc etc

To be fair it's a utility prop like a card to wallet, so it can be used in any routine, but with the childsplay routine you have one card selected and a second card is just thought of by the spectator.

Cheers Russ, I've a gig Saturday night so I'll definitely be putting it through its paces!

Hello MuscleMagic,

I'll upload a clip of Mark James' version of 'Childsplay' to give you an idea. We've not put the entire routine on the trailer because what you're getting is essentially another way to do card to wallet in a novel way and you're applying exactly the same technique.

I'll put the upload link here once it's live.

Best,
Russ

Hello Zomnie Magic,

Due to the high manufaturing costs, Utopia will only be available from ourselves and Mark Leveridge.

You can also get it from the creator Mark Leveridge - who has a bonus instruction set of 5 routines (together with a great Kids show routine). I bought my original from him over 10 yrs ago and still works great - but cant fit poker-sized cards!

http://www.markleveridgemagic.co.uk/ucf.php

remember though that Mark doesn't supply Childsplay or the routine - which remaians the property of rsvp. But he has a nice gesture that if you buy the Utopia Frame from rsvp, you can still purchase his VCD instructions for only 10 pounds extra! Great deal methinks!

The photo gives it a nice hook.

Russ, I have a truckload of RSVP products and they have all been winners. May offer some constructive criticism on the demo? I'm just afraid other producers will see what you've done and start thinking they can do it also.

At the start of the demo, there were no annoying stop/start/stop/start actions, or cheap salesman text telling us how amazing it is. The camera was pulled so far back, that we could see what was happening. Perhaps have it so closer so that we can't even tell what the trick is?

You used a charismatic, professional performer. Perhaps get someone that has no actual experience working for real people so what we aren't distracted and can focus on a litany of distracting graphics?

With the new demo, please have a list of non-sense responses defending it and letting us know we're too stupid to appreciate the power of the effect!

Thanks for listening!
