Very occasionally, someone develops a brand-new methodology which allows for effects which were previously considered impossible.

Imagine a signed playing card transforming quarter-by-quarter into a completely different card with the signature still intact! Ah, but is it the spectator's signature? Of course! But can the card be given away without a switch? Absolutely!

But that is just the start of what VDP can accomplish.

Back in the summer of 2001 Jon van der Put invented VDP, the principle behind some incredible effects that have created a huge buzz in the underground magic community. Previously, John has only taught the real work on his basic effect to one or two of his closest friends. Now the time has arrived for the fantastic VDP to enter the arsenals of magicians around the world.

On this exclusive Alakazam DVD Jon teaches the complete handling of the basic VDP effect as outlined above. In addition, he teaches a variety of advanced applications including: signed selections and predictions that transform, unbelievable transpositions, mind-bending card-fusions and impossible co-incidences.

Remember - in all the effects, the card is signed by the spectator at the outset, magically transforms quarter-by-quarter and is given away as a souvenir at the end with the spectator's signature still intact.

Jon's VDP is a low-tech marvel which will allow you to perform dozens of stunning, memorable effects.

Running Time Approximately 64min

VDP is honestly a VERY clever and ingenious gimmick! Hats off for the creativity and thought put into this. The dvd is well done, very descriptive on the handling and the effects taught are all killers! The reason I give this 4stars and not 5 is because they failed to mention the noise level of this gimmick lol This is not an effect that you want to perform in a quite area. If your a strolling magician looking for a great transposition this is it, but just keep in mind where you perform this trick(preferably an area with background noise!!!) Other then that you are left with a completely examinable and souvineir worthy signed card.

Fantastic trick that ends completely clean Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 14th, 2014
I personally love the effect you start relatively clean and end completely clean the effect itself gets the most outstanding reactions and always fools the audience in addition to being incredibly visionally stimulating. I gave it 4 stars because it is angle sensitive and more importantly the one large drawback to this effect is the amount of time an preparation you will need for this trick and each gimmick is a one time use so it requires continual creation of these gimmicks that require some time to make. Overall I personally love the effect and use it professionally but it all comes down to how much time each performer is willing to put into making the gimmicks.

Amazing effect! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 11th, 2015
VDP is a great effect! John teaches over 5 different effects in the DVD using the principle and similar principles, which makes it well worth the price. I would almost even pay $40 for this. For him to sell his reputation-making effect AND giving you so much material makes John a great man. Yes, there are a few drawbacks to the effect, but with most normal social situations they can be easily avoided and make it a seamless effect. This is definitely not for the beginner though. Knowing what I know, I have no fear making these gimmicks, just gotta take it slow and be cautious so the gimmick looks as good as it does in the video. Definitely worth buying , though!

Great trick....but Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 8th, 2012
This is an amazing trick, but there seems to be too much prep for it. I've messed up an entire deck of cards only to get about eight gimmicks for this routine. I think it would be much easier on your wallet and simpler for the trick to just have "Stickards by Alvo" to make the prep much easier.

Other than that, it is still an amazing trick and he teaches it well!! Piff the magic dragon! :3
