REHAB - A Real World Torn & Restored Card
Cameron Francis has created one of the most workable and visual Torn & Restored Card's EVER!
"Your spectator selects a card and signs it on the face.
You sign the card across the back.
The card is torn into quarters.
Then visually, magically and INCREDIBLY the card is reassembled quarter by quarter.
And at the end of the trick the spectator can take the miraculously restored card home with them!"
Easy to perform
Can be performed almost surrounded!
One of the most angle friendly piece by piece card restorations ever conceived!
Perfect for strolling and table hopping!
Simple set up
Approximately 1hr 22min | DVD
Restoration 1- Two pieces are shown and are restored similar to DG's Torn, but a little less angly.
Restoration 2- Another piece is grabbed and with a simple motion is restored, leaving you in a beautiful position and only lacking a corner. At this point, you can show your hands completely empty and show the card front and back, flashing their signature to the spectator.
Restoration 3- The final piece is shown and placed behind the card. With a simple move the card is restored visually.
Video and Quality:
Video- The video is split into sections (Performance and then Explaination). The video is also very well edited, put together, and produced. It covers everything really in-depth.
Quality- The quality of this video is great. There were definitely no problems hearing or seeing what was being said or done. The audio is good; everything is clear and easy to watch.
The teaching is phenomenal and shows you from a few different angles. Cameron teaches everything you need to know and takes you step by step through every detail of the handling. He does not leave any details out at all. Everything is broken into steps and categories for the easiest possible learning experience. Bob goes over everything you need to know to be able to perform this and to make it look good with the right presentation and audience.
The method is really well thought out and researched. Cameron designed this method and effect for the real world, but also had great angles and this effect and method does that. Cameron is a very creative and amazing guy with great and clever thinking.
The gimmick is very ingenious, it's very deceptive, and the audience won't assume anything, if performed correctly. You will have all the needed items.
The only set-up required is to make the gimmick, which should take no longer than 30 seconds to make and set-up.
This T&R is very practical and although you need to make a gimmick for each performance, it isn't as bad as it may sound. You'll have everything you need. This effect was made for the real world. Very practical.
Dirtiness and Clean-Up:
You do end slightly dirty, but everything is justified for the clean-up, which is very easy to do.
This effect can be performed almost surrounded and was this effect was designed for the real world and also workable, performable and visual.
On a scale of 1-10 (Ten being the hardest), I say it’s about a 4. Fairly easy and the moves can be mastered with a few days of practice in the mirror to ensure the moves are flawless.
This DVD also features FIVE awesome bonus routines -
Prophetic - A powerful prediction that hits 'em with a one-two punch!- Four business cards are placed down on a table. The spectator selects anyone and is placed aside from the rest. The business card is slid inside the deck, still being outjog. The card is turned over to reveal a prediction on the back of it (5 of Spades). The three other business cards are show to have a different prediction, all say (Jack of Diamonds) on the back. Meaning that the spectator chose the only card with a different prediction made on it. The two cards sandwiching the prediction (5 of Spades business card) that the spectator slid earlier in the deck is the Jack of Diamonds and the 5 of Spades.
Thoughts- Great prediction effect, spectator does the magic and in the end a great way to hand out a business card.
X Marks The Spot - Four X's drawn onto the back of four cards all jump onto a selected card. A true stunner!- A card is selected and remembered by the spectator and is lost into the deck (7 of Spades). The magician selects four cards out of the deck hoping that the selected card is among the pack. The magician then draws an "X" on the back of the pack of cards. With a magical gesture, all "X"'s disappear from the pack, except for one card which has four "X"'s meaning that the "X"'s from the other cards have jumped from all the cards onto the selected card, the 7 of Spades.
Thoughts- Very simple and awesome. "X"'s vanishes onto the selected card, very great.
Striking Backs - A powerhouse, small packet all-backs routine!- A pack of cards are placed on the table. The cards are dribbled and a card is selected by the spectator, remembered and lost (8 of Diamonds). The pack of cards are revealed to be four Jokers. One Joker is placed face up in the pack and is shown to have turned face down. But when the cards are turned over, they are revealed to be face down (sharing an uncanny resemeblance to double-facers). With a flick, the Jokers have actually transformed into the four Aces. With a snap the Aces trap one card between thema and it is the selected card (8 of Diamonds).
Thoughts- A nice, simple sandwich effect that ends with a transformation and reveal.
A Strange Visit - A Vistor-esque routine with a HUGE twist!- Four Jacks are displayed and spread among a table. The spectator selects a card (8 of hearts) and a pair of Jacks (Red Jacks) and is sandwiched between them. The three cards are then isolated and put under the card case. The other two Jacks (Black Jacks) are waved over the card case and visually capture one face up card between them, the selected card (8). The four Jacks are then transformed into the other three kinds of the selected card, making a 4 of a kind (8 of diamonds, spades, hearts and clubs).
Thoughts- Very great with a kicker ending they won't expect.
Warped Fusion - A super cool tunnel/fusion effect that will leave your spectators speechless!- A card is selected and is signed across the face (In this case the 4 of diamonds). The card is isolated from the deck and placed on the table face down. Meanwhile, another card is selected and signed across the back and placed on the table face up (In this case the 9 of clubs). A pair of cards are selected out of the deck, possesing the power to manipulate time and space (We'll use the Jacks as the pair of cards). The second selection (9) is placed between them (The Jacks) face up and is pushed in, only to appear face up with the signature visable. The first selection (4) is placed in the middle of the two cards and with a single touch steal the face of the second card (9). The signed card is turned over to reaveal the first selection (4) with both signatures on both sides.
Thoughts- Probably my favorite of all the included effects. Very simple and amazing and hits them hard.
A great workable, easy, performable and angle-friendly T&R card effect. I love the included bonus effects and the T&R. Highly recommended!
