I bought Vividus and I really like it. The participant selects a card which is completely blank, they then draw any card they wish on the blank card, this is handed back and the magician shakes the card and it instantly transforms into the actual playing card the participant hand drawn. Then the deck is instantly spread face up on the table and the deck is new deck order, now the participants hand drawn card is in the exact position it should be in the deck.

This effect is great, the handling is not technical but basic card handling skills are required, the PDF comes with video tutorials for everything which needs to be performed. The effect is adaptable to add your own endings and ideas. The effect is complete but Rus emphasises the importance of making it your own and it is easy to do. I like this and it is well worth the asking price.

Will I perform this, yes I will.. I will take it to the road this weekend.

The PDF comes with a video for clarity.

The PDF includes Rus's take on the ICAAN (Invisible Card at Any Number) the effect is excellent, it's like the Invisible Deck of ACAAN. A participant thinks of a playing card and a number, the invisible deck is dealt down to that number leaving one invisible card in the magicians finger tips. Then the magician asks the participant if they can see the playing card they are thinking of in the remaining cards which they agree they can't. Then the magician exclaims, that's because the fifteenth card which is now in my finger tips is the five of hearts... the card your participant is thinking of.

This effect is excellent and comes with multiple handlings to provide a water tight effect. I was initially dubious so I have performed this for my partner as described and it worked perfectly. She was genuinely astounded and so was I. This comes with video performances too to help clarify the explanation. There is nothing complicated in anyway, simple and strong magic. This is listed as a bonus, what a bonus it is. I'm really looking forward to playing around with this premis myself.

This has provoked so many thoughts and ideas, I am so excited by this and I look forward to performing these effects.

Affordable, unique and practical.

Joel.

Wow, that sounds awesome. Is the drawing a totally free choice? Is the magician allowed to see the drawing while its being done, or it is unknown until handed to them?

It could be seen whilst the drawing is being done and yes it's a completely free choice.

I'm not sure but look at those videos above. They're footage of the bonus effect alone.
Truth is Vividus is very strong but in not sure if there's a video demo of the effect.

Ok, it's the man effect that I'm interested in to be honest, I'd love to see it in action.

Where can this be purchased? The bonus effect demos look great- though I'm not so naive to believe their ain't more to it. I tried a similar effect off the Derren Brown DVD's once and couldn't believe it actually worked. Not sure who was more surprised, myself or the spec(my wife, who is a pretty tough customer!).

Curiosity piqued, would love to check this out.

Hey guys,

They always say the simplest effects get the strongest reactions.

Yesterday, I put this to the test. As this is really simplicity at its finest.

The audience was stunned, and after performing other feats, I decided to close my tabled repertoire with Vividus.

At the end of the night, I asked a couple of people to tell me what their favorite effect was from the night, and they all said Vividus.

Why?

Basically, the feeling of having a spectator think of a card, be artistic, draw the card out, then having the card change right in front of their eyes to a playing card, and to top it off kill them with the killer nobody sees coming ending.

I think that is the reason.

This will continue to stay in my set now, and this is an effect that you can have a lot of fun with.

It will require you to know some moves, but Rus explains everything in the PDF, even helps you out with videos so you can learn the moves.

For experienced card handlers, you will already know the moves, so no worries.

Rus, also provides a run through of everything, so you know what it looks like.

Great effect, lots of fun, great release.

Thanks Rus

Good Morning Folks

Iain the main effect is 100%, simple to perform and plays out really well, as mentioned ive used this time and time again to close my tabled set, also the Bonus effect ICAAN has two methods explained, one is a 100% surefire but uses something a bit extra but achieves the same effect in the spectators eyes, the other method is the version I use using Psy forces, I explain the Psy force I use the most and is seen in the video demo.

Hope that helps, many thanks to all that have purchased, all EBooks have been emailed out.

All the best

Oh, where is the video demo Rus? I do you mean those videos posted above of the bonus effect?

I'd like to see how the titled effect plays out. I like the sound oif it, but I'm, not going to buy without seeing how it plays.
