Listen as Alvo Stockman talks to Dan White (David Blaine consultant) about Lit, Dan Hauss and creating magic for television.


From the mind of Dan Hauss and Dan White comes an effect featured on the September 24th international David Blaine television special. The reactions with Lit are explosive.

A spectator is asked to take a match out of a matchbook, and ignite a match to verify its validity. The matchbook is then held tightly in their closed fist.

A card is selected in the deck - then visually vanished under impossible conditions. The spectator slowly opens their hand to find the matchbook has visually transformed into a twisted hybrid of playing card and match pack.

  • Easy to do.
  • Perfect for all close up situations.
  • As seen on national TV and used regularly by David Blaine
Includes Bonus routines (Dan White's Floating Match on Hand and Andrew Gerard's Self Lighting Match Pack)

FAQ

Q: Do I destroy a gimmick every time I perform?
A: No way! You can perform LIT hundreds of times with the gimmicks provided. If you choose to give away your gimmick as a souvenir, then you'll have to get more. Simple :)

Got this today and I wanted to warn you right away. What an over-priced disappointment. Don't buy this, it will be a bonus item in a few weeks, if it is still around. This looks like two frustrated film-makers trying to make magic videos for a bad trick. The video on the site should give you an indication of what is ahead. You need to find an item on your own that will be very hard to find and no one is going to believe the "gimmicked" product and even if they did, you don't get enough supplies to do the trick for more than a couple of weeks. You'll see how bad the "trick" is at the beginning of the instructions on the DVD. There are many good items here at Penguin, this is not one of them. Someone will post after me praising this trick, that's how it works. Trust me on this one, I have been buying from Penguin for five years. Save your money. Buyer beware.

Hot Magic Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Man it's hot in here! Lit... I believe we saw this very effect on the last Blaine special. Let me start with my one gripe about this effect, then I'll go on with the review. At the beginning of the DVD, one of the Dans states that this is an original effect. He is mistaken. Jay Sankey came up with this premise years ago. In the credits, they mention other magicians who have "independently played around with this concept" but no mention of Sankey.

That aside, this is a killer product and definitely worth consideration. I really dig the artistic style in which it was shot. A lot of black and white footage which gave it a bit of a cool feel. During the explanation portions of the DVD, there would be flashbacks to the performance section so that you could see the move, you just learned, in action. The performances, of course, were out on the streets.

For $35.00, you get, with the DVD, 14 specially printed cards and a handful of effects taught to you. Refills of 14 per pack are only $10 bucks. One of my concerns was that I wasn't sure I'd be able to find matchbooks that matched the plain white faux matchbook that comes with the DVD. Right about when I started having that concern, one of the Dans stepped into save the day with exactly how to get matching matches... whew!

There are a couple of different match tricks taught on the DVD. For me, the self lighting matchbooks (an addition by Andrew Girard) is entirely worth the price. You literally can hand an open match book to a spectator to hold. As they hold it, the whole freakin' thing bursts into flames! It's just too darn cool.

Several different ideas regarding the handling and performance are offered. Overall, this DVD is pretty typical, production-quality wise, of most of the DVDs by young guys: Super hip and fresh editing and effects, but relatively poor quality filming in the living-room-apartment-doubling-as-a-production-studio.

I definitely recommend this, if for nothing else, the self lighting match book. 1/2 point lost for not crediting one of the pioneers of this effect... Jay Sankey. GEM!

I performed at a street festival last night and of all the tricks I performed, Lit by far had the biggest reaction. Easy to perform and hits hard. You do have to purchase an additional item which may have to be ordered online, but it is very inexpensive and well worth it.

killer effect with thorough instruction Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 8th, 2012
I'm so used to transpo effects I often forget how much they can affect the laymen; the first time I did this trick my spectator physically trembled! Having said that, I highly recommend this one. It's especially awesome to have two different points of view on treatment and performance techniques for a remarkable effect that requires only basic sleights... gimmicks are very well made (bikes and not mandolins thank goodness), DVD instructions are spelled out step-by-step for all of the routines, but to have the secret to the self-lighting matchbook in the bonus section was icing on the cake! I am very happy with this purchase, a top-notch pocket trick for sure!

A little pack of perfection! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 3rd, 2012
If you are like me, you have performed dozens (if not hundreds) I card effects. There are plenty bad, some good, fewer still are good. Let's be honest, most are forgettable.

Lit is a little mini-performance piece that will evoke a true sense of wonder. It is the unexpected that transports us for a moment. For those who would an extra bit of moveless impact, I would suggest combining this with a card idea described in "Seven" by Patrik Kuffs. The technique described will provide all the work in one swoop. It forces the card and makes it disappear.

Forget twisting and counting cards and use "Lit" to transcend the medium. It is a wonderful close up effect.

Lit by Dan Hauss and Dan White

Effect: A spectator is asked to take a match out of a matchbook, and ignite a match to verify its validity. The matchbook is then held tightly in their closed fist.

A card is selected in the deck - then visually vanished under impossible conditions. The spectator slowly opens their hand to find the matchbook has visually transformed into a twisted hybrid of playing card and match pack.

Price:$34.95

Teaching: The teaching is incredible, Dan Hauss goes over the basics very well enough for you to follow his moves. They also teach you the ol' restored lit match to pack with new flare to it. It goes to Live footage when he does a move which is very nice and helpful to see how the performance flows. Dan White goes over a variation of the biddle trick.

You also get Andrew Gerard's Lighting Match Pack which has a clever method behind it, you also get Dan White's Floating match as a bonus which I will use!

Quality: You get the DVD and your Lit gimmicks which I love! I just wish I got more than 14 but refills are 8 bucks and they are well worth the dough.
When folded up I get fooled that it's a box full of matches :D

Difficulty: 2/5 Basic sleights are used here so it's nothing risky to perform. Casual is the word :wink: . I loved watching the performances, this gets reactions that are off the wall! This takes

Applications: With Andrew Gerard's Lighting Pack method you can also apply to create your own effects! I'll keep it at that. This is Street Magic! And there are so many ways you can present this. This is even an effect you can perform with language barriers!

I performed Carbon Paper to people who don't speak English well..now I have LIT :D

Overall: 10/10 For under $40 you get so much from the most respected magicians in the industry today. A strong effect, it's killer!
