Not as Perfect for close up as you may think Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 1st, 2015
This comes across as an impressive illusion, especially watching it performed in a prepared studio video presentation. Once you receive it though and realize what is used to accomplish the effect you will realize that conditons such as lighting, viewing angle, and type of table top you are doing it on ALL matter. It is highly unlikely that you will come upon a perfect place to do this on the spur of the moment without advance preparation. It also has to be done sitting down, unless you figure out some special way to work around it. I think the presentation and patter used are excellent. I bought this thinking I would do it all the time in my routine. BUT because of its limitations I will not be doing it very often at all. Bottom line, the secret of how this done is worth the price, just don't be surprised if you find it difficult to do under most of your normal working conditions.

Simply Wonderful Report this review

Simply put, this is a fantastic effect. I love the way Mr. Bloom presents this trick as well. He covers many aspects as well as subtle nuances and alternate ideas.

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that there are two training videos with this one. One that teaches the trick, and another that teaches you how to set up your gimmick. I was a bit confused when I first received my gimmick :)

AMAZING! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 7th, 2013
I love this new product it is so clean and visual. I have been playing with this for hours now and I'm enjoying it. He teaches you a great balancing act and you can even balance cigarettes on top of each other. The gimmick is so unpredictable that people don't look for it. Lighting is not much of an issue either. My gimmick hasn't actually arrived yet but all already made one my self :)

I remember years and years ago when I first saw someone perform the Amazing Standing Card effect, and I also remember just how badly I wish I knew the secret behind it so I could start performing it.

Now that it has finally been released to the close-up magic community, I will happily add it to two of my close-up card magic routines where I start to involve more and more spectators into helping me perform certain effects.

Now as for teaching aspects of this instant download, I was very pleased with the way Gaetan Bloom teaches you step by step on what to do, where to do it and a few other ideas that he has honed over the many years he has performed this effect.

The gimmick that is required to make this effect possible, is something I'm sure every magician already owns. Along with the instant download feature, the first video is all about the setup which is extremely easy. You will also receive a video that helps you step by step, get the right amount of "gimmick" and how to store and use it before, during and after your performance.

I really do love the simplicity of the effect and the laymen in the audience never have a difficult time following along with what the type of effect you're performing. And even though you can sort of call this a "challange" type effect between the spectator and magician, it still gets great laughs because of the apparent impossibility of the effect.

So if you like to perform close-up card magic, and have $9.95, do yourself and your audience a favor and purchase this effect. It really is that entertaining and magical, and when those two are combined, your audience will remember you and your magic for the rest of their lives!

Sit Down for this One Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 17th, 2016
First of all Gaeten Bloom is a genius wizard, I have all the respect in the world for him. This effect although a great routine has a limited venue. If you do sit down magic, then don't even hesitate, get this. If you do walk around or stand up good luck with this one. It will work for stage though. The effect is great but it is limited by location. Still glad I got it, it has given me some ideas on one walk around effect I have been playing with.

Great Magic! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 2nd, 2013
A very clever concept. I love it when there's a card effect that doesn't involve finding their card! It can be done with business cards too, and gives options that will work with both cards and business cards. You can see that a lot of thought has gone into this, for many years. You might need a table, or a flat surface, while you don't need to necessarily be sitting down.

Don't hesitate Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 14th, 2013
This is such an amazing effect. Without a doubt a magician fooler. Being aware of the Tt method, this really impressed me. Luckily I already carry the gimmick with me everyday for a few other effect( like I'm sure many of us do) so adding this to my working set will be a breeze. If you liked what you saw I'm the video, don't hesitate to pick this up. The method is just as entertaining as the actual effect also.

Beautiful and Simple Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 2nd, 2019
The beauty of this effect lies in its simplicity. A single, ungimmicked playing card stands upright on any table, and can be immediately picked up and examined by the spectator. What you see is what you get, and it's awesome. Gaetan Bloom is also as endearingly entertaining as he is brilliant.

This video is a clip of about 20 minutes of his 3+ hour live lecture, so do yourself a favor and spend the extra $15 to get the whole thing here: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/3657 . The full lecture even qualifies for the 5 for $99 deal (http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/1902), in which case it's only $5 more than the individual Amazing Standing Card video!

The only catch is that if you get the individual effect you'll receive the special something in the mail, which you don't get with the full lecture. If you're an experienced magician you already have it, and even if you don't it's something you'd do well to buy in a second purchase anyway. You'll still get to learn the method immediately with the video -- you might just not be able to perform it immediately. It will be cheaper to buy the special something separately than the extra cost of the full lecture on top of the individual effect.
