John Stessel is a strikingly creative magician. On this DVD, he invites you to take an intriguing journey into his world.

Abandon all preconceptions.

Inside this mysterious realm, you won't encounter common effects produced by familiar methods. Instead you'll discover seven innovative and unique phenomena crafted by arcane means.

Earthly laws of physics don't apply here... Watch as everyday items transmute and take flight, Ordinary objects behave in extraordinary ways.

These powerful, entertaining effects will cause your spectators to question their perceptions and reconsider their notions of the impossible.

Welcome to John Stessel's world...

Ice Breaker- One of the best ways to break the ice with a person... EVER! With Ice Breaker the magician visually changes an Icebreaker mint container from blue to green, or from mint to candy, this is easy, fun, organic magic at its best.

Merge 1.0- an extremely visual change of a playing card, done with no sleight of hand, and to make this even more impossible, the card is isolated in a rubber band and still visually changes!

Bendable- this is an organic miracle, walk up to a person at a party or in a restaurant, borrow a bendy straw, and visually have the bend of the straw begin to move across the length of the straw, with absolutely no cover, and impossibly end on the other side. The straw can be immediately examined, and the spectator is left with an amazing simple souvenir.

Black Hole- A gimmick that changes your card box into a secret vanishing weapon, audibly vanish coins, make objects vanish in the spectator's hands, make objects appear, the possibilities of the Black Hole gimmick are endless, oh and was it mentioned that at the end the box can be examined? Yeah it's the real deal. Three bullet proof routines are tough with the Black Hole gimmick, but the true potential of this gimmick is up to you to discover!!!

Popcorn- The name goes without being said organic easy and tasty! Popcorn is a situational effect where you borrow a piece of popcorn, you hold it at your fingertips and with the blink of an eye it visually and quickly jumps into the magician's mouth! Eat and enjoy!

Cap Off- Borrow a water bottle, borrow a cap, place the cap upside down on top of the bottle, without any motion of the hands, have that cap impossibly fall off! Everything is instantly examinable, and you are instantly reset!

Arrow- A modern day tribute to Robin Hood, one production, one shot, one stab, a whole lot of magic, and a big display of skill, with barely any skill!

Ok,i bought this from my local shop without knowing what to expect,and i must say,this is FANTASTIC!!!!!
Ice breaker:
this is john's favorite routine,i thought it was good,and i like the tip so that you can show the back
John includes a variation by Jeff Prace,which is ok
VERY easy gimmick to make,and it's pretty practical,it's nothing revolutionary but it's still fun
this is FANTASTIC,great principle allows you to make an impromptu FLAP CARD LIKE CHANGE (it looks as good as a flap),i had the jm download so nothing new for me,this is defenetely one of the best on the dvd
this was a fun idea,very quick gimmick to make,it's a casual situation type trick,i might perform this,but definitely not the best thing on here
Black Hole:
NOW THIS IS TRULY AWESOME,i had invented something VERY similar but that does different things,it basically allows you to make a rattle box or a vanishing box,if you have Alex Pandrea's coin waltz,you can do the same thing with this
This is a really fun effect that was in Linxus,it uses john's hookup,which is NOT a loop,it's a quick effect that would play VERY well,it's very hard to break the gimmick as well
Cap Off:
interesting idea,new way of using the hookup in popcorn,this was very good but u can basically just use a loop,but this allows you to not move your hands (not as easy as it sounds)
a very good version of the stab card trick, 2 new moves are explained,which i quite enjoyed and i am DEFINITELY going to be using the production for the card,it's the poor man's top shot
John credits a lot of people,some were missing tough,but he has done his research and he seems to be very serious about crediting (good!)
Overalll dvd:
great!good quality,not theory11 like,but great organic tricks that i really believe you will perform!especially cap off,popcorn,arrow,black hole and merge
