I just read a great review on this effect and wanted to share it: I hope it helps you get a feeling for what the DVD contains. Sincerely, Matt Sconce
"PowerWord:Fall by Matt Sconce-"The words you speak when performing, change the impact your magic has on a spectator. Imagine having the ability to control objects with the power of your words. This is not an average psychokinetic effect. With just a quiet whisper from several feet away, you are able to make objects fall at your command. The Power Word principle allows you to perform the impossible, knock one object off another without affecting it or choose which objects will fall and which will remain standing."
No complaints here and as far as sound, video, lighting and angles goes, everything here is fine.
Matt is an excellent teacher. He really goes over the top to teach you the ins and outs of each method possible in detail.
Very clever and a genius way of using this prop.. Matt really put some thought into this and really pushed this prop beyond its expectations.
Depending if you order the DVD it comes with the gimmick, but if you ordered the download you will have to buy 2 different items. One will have to be ordered from a magic site and one can be bought pretty much anywhere.
Prep & Setup-
This varies depending on what method you decide to use. The prep literally takes a few seconds or minutes, this also depending on your situation. Although, most, if not all, require the same amount of prep to perform. Although, they are usable, but not portable... more suitable when you're at your own house, your friends house, park, or anywhere, but you should definitely consider your surroundings. But there is a very portable method taught, contributed by Brandon Williams, which is my personal favorite method. By using Brandon's Method, you are allowed to perform impromptu miracles. Also, in each method, by showing the designated ares to be completely clean, you are setup and ready to perform.
Very easy and should only take a hours of practice to really get down. Certain situations can contain certain problems, such as some light and angle issues. Also not every place may be suitable to perform this, so you must experiment to see what's best for you and your comfort zone.
Basic Fall: Allows you to knock over a single (borrowed) pen or playing card(s).
Pulse/Wave: Allows you to knock over multiple objects, whether they're in a line, pattern or wall.
Barrier: Allows you to knock over specific objects, regardless that there are other objects in front of it.
Ping Pong Ball: Allows you to knock an object of another object, essentially a ping pong ball of a highlighter.
Reverse: Allows you to knock over an object while your back is turned.
Under: Allows you to knock over an object under and through other objects.
On The Go: Allows you to perform PowerWord: Fall on the go.
Brandon Williams Mobile Method: Allows you to perform PowerWord: Fall on the go and ready for impromptu PK miracles.
This is definitely my style of magic and something I'll be performing for when I really want to blow peoples' minds. When used correctly, this is a very, very powerful effect that will make people question everything they know. It's as if a ghost has passed upon the objects where they slowly and eerily fall down. Also, this effect leaves a lot of room for presentation which allows you to make it fit you and your style. Also, another bonus is that the spectators themselves can set up the objects and when they fall, they are allowed to quickly grasp the objects and find nothing. Also, no weird, unnatural hand movements and also you can be as stiff as a statue, just utter the word and it falls. It's simple, direct, powerful and just insane... you/they set up the objects, you/they say the magic word, the objects fall. How more direct and fun can it get, you'll have them scratching their head in disbelief, with their mouths wide open, speechless and frozen in time.
Words have power-
