All the Polaroid pictures Iíve ever seen are square shaped...unless this is from a new polaroid camera that prints a rectangular photo?


I've used the Fuji Instax mini film for a few years. They have a pocket printer similar to the HP Sprocket.
The film is credit card sized. Like what they use for the photos that SEO Magic sells such as Rainbow by Higar.
It is rectangular.

Ah, ok, thanks!

I actually received the product Project Polaroid so I can compare and tell you that the method is really similar


So it's 'really similar' but not exactly the same. Are you looking to be credited or to get a part of their profits?


I would have liked to be involved in this project since they took the concept out of my Frame, and put it on a Polaroid. They canít even show both sides of the polaroid, while you can have a signed card on the other side of the gimmick in Frame.

Sebastien calbry contacted me for Badgť because he wanted to make things right, and we put the trick out together.

Skymember didnít even contact me, they took the concept, made money out of it. Integrity is unfortunately not the priority for everyone :/

Alex, respectfully the method for this trick is sufficient enough to justify its own release. I do know how the frame effect works- the method is different I believe? Polaroid face can be touched afterwards and felt it is normal (frame you cannot), and it makes more sense on a Polaroid. Interestingly, the method of this effect is more like victor sanz ink a change rather than frame

Looks good, but...

I think with a natural object, people wanna hold it and interact with it...

Are there items with this that let you sw##%h or is the gimmick p#lm@ble?

As I said, I OWN Project polaroid, thatís why Iím saying that the method are highly similar. Polaroid canít be touched after the change. How can you say methods are different without having the actual product ? I OWN Project Polaroid and Iím the creator of Frame so I think I can compare.

Wait, you can't show both sides of the Polaroid? Like IAIN says, it would be a plus to not have the heat on after the change. It can be managed I'm sure, but bummer.

When it comes to visual magic, Julio is a beast. I saw him live performing candy magic and a triumph trick that is just insane.

Polaroid looks like a visual, practical and fun effect to perform! I wish him the best since he really deserve it!

After his Bill change comes Polaroid, this guys is on fire.

I'm in!

After watching the trailer again, it seems like the method is actually same as frame, not sure whether the Polaroid will withstand moderate scrutiny at all, gimmick seems better camouflaged on a playing card.

That being said, I hope it does not rely on a certain sticky material in order to facilitate the change, I find it isnít too reliable in performance

Would make an amazing reveal for Skynet, Think of any card,...... then pop it out of a polaroid !
No heat on the gimmick

Not sure if the load is easy enough to do that....

Regarding the Photos, these are now very common.
I have one of these cameras and my daughter has one of these
cameras and they both use Fuji film of the same
type used by Higar in his fabulous releases. I have never had the
photos questioned at all. I carry them in a plastic wallet together with a photo
of my son and daughter.

This project looks interesting

Could you see the gimmick in the close up situation ? Or it more suitable for parlor effect ?

You can use it close up to show them and have them rub the photo with their index finger to show it's real. I wouldn't hand it out until after with a s*****. Rooster was right on with his review. The accent didn't bother me until into the video when it came to building extra gimmicks. It is disappointing to not have the Rubik's cube photo as in the trailer.

In normal close-up performance situations and with the correct spectator handling, such as you would for most gimmicks of this nature(itís kind of tricky explaining without exposing), you will be fine. Basically if youíve got the grips of basic spectator management youíll be fine.

Thanks a lot! Yes my routing (as mentioned in the review) is much like the dog/cat switch. In this situation the heat is more on the spec, so most donít feel the need to check the gimmick after. But the way the gimmick is set up I can have them feel the photo both before and after if they wish.

Rooster,

Thank you very much for your review. Did you discuss the durability and fragile nature of the gimmick? If so, I apologize. I watched your review but may have missed it.
Thank you.

Many thanks! I did touch on it briefly upon discussing the main aspect in the making of the gimmicks. Basically theyíre durable to an extent. They will have a shelf life depending on usage, but you do get a lot of extra ďstuffĒ to rebuild if needs be(plus itís easy to find online). I keep one in my phone for impromptu performances and two in my JOL wallet for work, so theyíre fine so long as kept safe and not man handled Smile
