by Jay Sankey
In the spring of 2005 Jay sent out a world-wide request for audition videos featuring original material from unknown magicians. In response, performers from more than a dozen countries submitted more than 200 tapes and dvds! From this mountain of submissions Jay and his team unanimously selected Joe Diamond, Eric Leclerc and Jeff Stone.
A few months later, Jay, Joe, Eric and Jeff met up in Toronto and over a couple of days taped an outstanding collection of close-up magic and mentalism including 20 effects with matchbooks, coins, playing cards, keys, film canisters, wrist watches, chewing gum, water bottles and magic markers. Here are just a few...
The torn corner of a playing card and a marked coin impossibly change places!
- RAZOR BURN
A disposable razor visibly transforms into a book of matches!
One of the cleanest, tightest color changing deck routines you will ever learn!
- DREAM VACATION
An initialed coin vanishes and reappears in a just-examined film canister!
- STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART
A marvelously practical "rising card" handling!
- SHY GUYS
A super visual, lo-tech "Twisting the Aces" routine. You'll learn it, you'll do it!
A sandwich effect with a mind-blowing surprise ending!
- GREAT SCOTT
The spectator's signed card appears folded-up under the magicians wrist watch!
- FINAL CAP IN BOTTLE
The "last word" on cap-in-water-bottle effects!
A widly visual torn and restored card effect that starts and finishes absolutely clean!
