Casshan Wallace immediately found worldwide attention with his rubber band effect Melting Point. With acclaim and buzz surrounding his YouTube and Social Media followers, the most common statement about Casshan's magic is: "That has to be a camera trick".

Well, we're excited to say that they are not! They're very real and you can do can start performing them in minutes.

From borrowed everyday objects, like cell phones, rings, money, coins to card effects, Casshan has created a workers trove of magic in this packed DVD. So, be prepared for your spectators to accuse you of using CGI, because the visuals are striking & downright unreal looking.

Trick list

- C/M: A card is signed and folded and visually changes into a dollar. The inside of a wallet reveals that the signed card switched places with the dollar.
- Spectictacular: A *borrowed* ring visually penetrates a Tic-Tac box.
- Change For Good: Four quarters are held in the magician's hand and visually change into a dollar. See it to believe it.
- Fresher Transformation: A deck of cards visually changes into a real pack of gum. No better way to freshen up your deck.
- Boxin' It Up: A deck of cards is placed into the box by melting through the bottom of it. Great opener.
- True Link: Two paper clips impossibly link by simply pressing their ends together.
- (Bonus) Nest of Tech: A signed coin or borrowed ring inexplicably changes into a phone battery. The magician's phone is taken apart to reveal the signed coin or borrowed ring switched places with the battery.

Get ready, because you'll be doing magic that looks like CGI within hours of buying this DVD.

C/M: This, with True Link, is for me is worth the entire price of the DVD. The routine Casshan provides it is great. The way it is constructed makes the handling extremely easy. The gimmick literally took me 10 minutes to make, and should last a long time. Some of the alternative changes Cash provides are more angle sensitive, but the main change is great. 10/10

Spectictacular: This one is also great. It is a very organic penetration of a borrowed ring through a tic tac box. Again, great method, which is camouflaged very well with the routine. The box is obviously not examinable, but Casshan teaches a way to switch it which works really well. 9/10

Change For Good: I really like this one, but I can't really perform it with my currency (Euros). The build isn't particularly difficult and the visual is insane. I have to get myself some quarters and a dollar... 8/10

Fresher Transformation: Not much to say about his one. It's crazy visual and makes for a great ice breaker to introduce yourself as a magician. I don't see myself performing it though, but that doesn't mean it isn't good. This build is relatively easy. It is about as difficult to build as C/M. 7/10

Boxin' it up: This is probably the only trick I didn't really like in the DVD. Once again, the visual is amazing, and I can see myself performing this for a camera. The method is really the stand out for me. It is extremely smart and has got me thinking of some other tricks to do with it. 7/10

True Link: If I had bought this trick separately for the same price, I would have been extremely pleased. The method is amazing, extremely simple, but nothing short from amazing. The routine Casshan provides really gets the spectator involved, which is when magic is most powerful. If I could give this a 20 out of 10 I would. 10/10

Bonus! Nest of Tech: When you see a bonus effect, you almost expect something quite bad. This is not the case. This is a modern version of Nest of Wallets or Boxes. Your spectator's signed ring ends up inside your phone, where the batter should be. Once again, simple method and execution, but does the job. I'll use this. I just have to find a phone that would work for it. 9/10

Teaching: Casshan's teaching is very casual and laid back, which is something I really like. He is very passionate with his effects, and you can tell the evolution from simple ideas to fully developed routines. The construction section is shot with an over-the-shoulder view, which makes it extremely easy for those who are watching. 10/10

Production Quality: It is Murphy's Magic, so I was expecting amazing quality. As always, it was great. No audio issues, no lighting issues. Perfect conditions. 10/10

Pros: That Casshan provides you with a routine, not only a visual moment.

Cons: The lack of live performances which we saw on the trailer.

Final Thoughts: I highly recommend this project if you like magic which is organic (which is a word I personally hate).

Final Rating: A solid 9.5/10

I have been the victim of purchasing some of those effects that have flashy trailers and cool looking effects yet they just don't translate into the real world. This is NOT one of those DVDs. Each effect seems completely useable. While the gimmicks do take quite a bit of time to make, I don't really mind this since I enjoy the process of making my own gimmicks anyway.

The first effect with the dollar/card transposition is worth the price of the DVD. I have made, practiced and performed this effect with the exact results as the DVD. The effect really does look like it does on the trailer in real life. most people just gasp and say "do it again!" In my opinion, after the change of the card to the bill, most people don't even care about the card/transpo. The only reason I do it is to take the heat off the gimmick, but I can see this as being a great opener with just the card/bill change. I have used it this way as well with great results. It is so clean looking, most people just sit with jaws on the floor.

I haven't built or worked with the other effects, but they also look like workers. As long as you don't mind arts and crafts, this is a great set of effects by a genius of creating innovative and creative gimmicks that really work!

Thanks, Casshan!

My first review Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 21st, 2016
I was a little skeptical about getting this DVD, but boy was I wrong. All the tricks on here are amazing. I haven't made any of the gimmicks yet, but I am sure when I do they are going to be able to impress a lot of people. My only complaint is that I would have liked to have seen some live footage of him doing the tricks on the DVD like they showed on the promo, but other than that these tricks are real workers.

WOW Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 7th, 2016
Better than what I thought, the concept behind those tricks are really unpredictable, this DVD is totally worth the money, but you will need times for construct these gimmicks and also learning and mastering the routine for these tricks, anyways Great Effects Great DVD!!! THANK YOU Casshan!

Good stuff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2017
Very visual, good for camera...also for Close Up but one truly needs to work on personalizing the methods so they work better according to one's unique personality...all in all...good product and good price

Legality With One Effect - C/M Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 5th, 2017
So to try and avoid spoiling what is an obviously great trick, in the construction of the actual effect, Casshan actually does something illegal to U.S. tender.

Now, if you have the DVD, you'll know what I'm talking about. But for those that want to know specifics, let's just say it's illegal to tear or mutilate a dollar bill.

This is just a word to those who want to stay on the safe side, as this is something that immediately made me cringe. I suspect you could substitute it with fake notes, and Casshan also states in the DVD that you don't have to use an actual dollar bill in the construction.

My advice: get the DVD to learn how to construct a beautiful effect, but be aware of this one facet

obvious and dirty Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 13th, 2016
bha...really don't like....
all routines are not convincing...4 of this tricks are very angle sensitive,2 are ridiculous...
.c/m - gimmick is very obvious, angle sensitive ,make little noise who reveal it and the switchs are obvious too
.spectictacular - unusable, must palm off the dirty
.change for good - super angle sensitive, must palm off the dirty
.fresher trasformation - obvious and you can't let it check
.boxin'it up - obvious, can't check the box and look bad
.true link - boy....this is for 6 years old kids!!!!

if you want a dvd whit obvious trick with non visionable objects this is for you!
I can not believe that they are presented as miracles you can perform in the real world ... are only good for making movies and possibly running them to an audience that knows nothing of tricks
