Why do you receive both a book plus a video explanation download?


You’re paying for the book. The video is a bonus to visually explain what the book teaches.

Watched the video. Well taught, everything is very straight forward.
However, with effects like this remember that picking a cooperative spectator and having the proper (non challenging) script are always a good idea.
Nothing hard to do. Say to make. Nicely done Mr. Redford.

Hey folks - Just wanted to chime in an address some of the questions that have come through the thread.

At the moment this will only be available from me directly.

What exactly are you getting?

Simply: This is a proven routine that works. You receive a pocket size 48 page booklet, the necessary gimmicks, and a complimentary streaming video (there's more stuff in the book so be sure to read it). You'll need to supply a deck of cards.

Television Rights withheld?
As for withholding television rights - it is clearly stated on our site prior to sale (contrary to what has been written here).

Is the Participant in on it in anyway way?
No.

Does the participant really experience the feeling of not being able to lift/remove the cards?
Yes.

Are the materials used for the gimmick readily available?
Due to the nature of the gimmick it will need to be replaced every few performances. That said, it's easy to replace and very inexpensive to have on hand. It's does not take much effort to put together...even if your arts and crafts skills are not up to snuff. I prefer to simply "dispose" of the gimmick during each performance as I most often do this when I'm not going to be repeating over and over. That said, I CAN be done over and over with the same gimmick. I prefer to ditch everything and end clean.


Why isn't there a real world performance?
There is. That's what the demo video is. That's the real world. Performed for someone how isn't "playing along."

How much audience management is necessary?
All magic requires one to manage an audience. That's simply part of the nature of a good performance/performer. I've performed this for all sorts of audience members from skeptics to believers. The participant needs to follow instructions to have maximum impact but that's true of most interactive magic I can think of!

I should also say that while the idea of combining it with the effect "Unliftable" seems like a wonderful marriage of two effects - unless a deck switch is involved the necessary gaffing for Unliftable will get in the way of the necessary trickery of Hypnotic Pull. The two won't play well together. Hypnotic Pull ends clean with an ordinary deck of cards that may be given away if one desired to.

Ah! That didn’t even occur to me. Of course it would get in the way.

Still a fun option if you aren’t afraid of a deck switch!

Love light/heavy routines so looking forward to getting this. Stupid international post taking way too long. I'm going to have a tantrum if my postman doesn't bring it soon!

Got mine in the UK today, received the shipping notification about 4 days ago so really quick.
Not much of a review as only had it about 12 hours but I'm liking it a lot. The preview video gives a very accurate account of what this does and how it looks. Very good indeed.
