Spin It - David Frampton (Instant Download)
Spin It is a visual card transposition where two cards bolted together instantly switch places in front of the audiences eyes. No tricky sleight of hand, no huge set-up, just a simple and astonishing effect.

I wasn't even aware of what was happening through 3/4 of the demo.

I would NEVER carry this around with me. I can think of around 200 other things I'd like to perform that will amaze and not put them to sleep.

Huh.

I'm not sure what it is I'm supposed to be seeing here. I realize that the red and blue cards are changing their position, but it's done with a very blatant move so it's quite obvious how it's done.

I'm not saying there isn't a seed of an effect here. There is. But that seed was already turned into an effect called Out of Order by Angelo Carbone, many years ago. No herky-jerky moves, just a very simple straightforward effect.

Hello magic friends and magic lovers,

this is for free, so if you don't like it, just don't use it. You haven't lost anything. Just a funny thing to play with. Not everything has to be hard hitting magic. Sometimes there are just small things that is fun to play with. And we wanted to share this little thing for FREE.

All the best

I wouldn't agree with that. Not everything has to be a $60 gaff, but why do anything if it doesn't have hard hitting impact? I'd rather change a card in their hand then do something so-so as a throwaway.

I understand it's free, but this section is too comment on whatever is posted, free or otherwise.

Alex, it's not something I would ever do, so I didn't take the free offer. I'm sure anything you do for people is a big hit. I'm not as talented, so I have to be very choosey what I'll bother to learn.

Alex, I'm a fan of you and your magic and I look forward to seeing more from you. I'm just a hobby geek. I bet the workers on the Café will love to perform Spin-it.

I would have one of the cards signed so it's more obvious what's going on.

Good idea Stucky. You can also put them face to face and do an Zone X type of effect.

All the best

Hey all,

It's Dave. I have been on holiday and I have just got back. Thanks for the feedback on the "effect". The idea behind this wasn't to release a hard hitting effect or anything like that. It was just a new way to use an old technique and we figured that maybe you guys would have some use for it. Maybe you could come up with an effective way to use it as a part of a routine, maybe it will inspire something better, maybe you will just have fun with it or maybe you will hate it and forget about it. It was just a tid-bit we had and figured you guys might like or may find some use for in the future, which is why we released it for free. I completely understand that you may not want use it as an individual effect, but to laymen it does seem to produce a reaction when you put it into a routine. On my holiday I was using it as a part of an ambitious card routine and it got really good reactions.

The way I personally see magic (particularly learning magic) is that the small things may all come in use one day and not to throw anything away, so instead of just leaving this on the side, we decided to share with you.

@Zombie @Magicsquared, thanks particularly for your feedback I appreciate your input and hopefully the next free download we have is something that you will like more or have more use for.

If anyone does come up with a nice way to use this, feel free to record a video and send it to us (or a link to it) and I will happily put it up on the balcony page. It could be an interesting magic community experiment. We will also try to do the same. After all, more minds are better than one Smile

Thanks again, if you have any further questions, constructive criticism or anything else feel free to post or send me a personal message.

Kind regards,

Dave

You could also add a couple cards and make it more deceptive, then do something that REALLY appeals to the sensibilities of your audience like start with them out of order and then...

Angelo can probaby explain it to you better than me.

Hi Angelo,

First I should explain how this effect came to be. I was sat at my PC playing around with cards, I bolted them together and then realized that by cutting the edge of the cards they could switch positions when revolved. There was no outside influence, inspiration or anything like that. So it was impossible to research...Short of buying every single piece of magic material ever recorded or written there was no way I could have known who deserved any credit in the effect. I knew that the method was nothing new and had been around for a long time and I found a couple of effects that used the same method in a different way, neither of which was yours. I also asked some magic friends and they too said that the method was old and that numerous magicians had used it in various effects, but none of them knew who, on what DVD or in which book. So I was stuck and there was no way I could find out the original creator of the method in order to give credit.

So with that being said, I apologize that you were not credited in the effect. But I literally did not know that you should have been. Are you the original creator of this method? If you can confirm that you are the first ever person to create this method of transposing cards I will happily credit you on the website and I will provide a link to your website for users to follow.

Kind regards,

Dave

Hey Angelo,

concerning credits, this idea goes way back to 1936 Tom Seller's "New Principle Card Trick". From this time on a lot of magicians used this variation in different effects, for example Harry Lorane, Bruce Cervone and Larry Jennings just to name a few. And when Dave showed us the effect we did our research on this as we always do. And because it is almost 100 years old, we saw it as a classic and we just made the classic a bit more modern.

I wish you all the best

Alex

Hello Dave

Usually a good place to research a new effect is to ask on a forum where then are thousands of brains out there that could help. Limiting to just a few friends is not enough. Had you asked on this forum or Genii forum, you may have got some pointers to my effect. There are a few threads. Effort is just required.

I think you have openly contradicted yourself. You say and I quote that your effect "was impossible to research", so if you did not research as it was 'impossible' then how did you know there were other versions which were older and the method was nothing new? You say "I knew that the method was nothing new and had been around for a long time and I found a couple of effects that used the same method". To me that sounds like research. But you could not know all this unless you researched, but you couldn't because it was impossible. I am confused. That is good that you have managed to discover years old versions but not my one which was 18 years old. You have also asked friends and they too said the method was old and that numerous versions have used it in many effects. Great! Could you kindly send me a PM with the title of these various effects that use this principle as I am intrigued to know. Maybe I need to be give credit too! I look forward to your PM.

You sound like you are being a little sarcastic in asking me if I am the first person to create the method to transposing cards. I hope not. Smile
Roughing fluid is an old principle. Short and long cards are an old principle. It doesn't mean because something is 'old' you can just do what you want with a priniciple without proper research. The principle used of two cards transposing around a metal object (rivet/pivot/rod - what have you) is unique to me. Prior to that the combination of effect and method did not exist.

Danny Orleans reviewed it in Genii Magazine in 1995 FYI.

Thanks and can't wait to find out the other versions in a PM so I can learn too!
