Performed by Cameron Francis himself. Stacks can allow you to perform miracles under the fairest and cleanest conditions imaginable. Stuff you just can't do impromptu. Stuff that will seriously blow your spectator's minds.
This DVD contains three such effects. Each trick requires a full deck set up and each one is self-working. Just add presentation and stir vigorously.
The three effects use completely normal decks which, after the trick is over, can be shuffled up and used to produce all sorts of impromptu miracles. I think all of them make very good openers, however I often save "Over The Top" for the finale of my set as it has the "boom, boom, boom" rhythm of fireworks toward the end which gives it that closer kind of feel.
Give at least one of these effects a whirl and revel in the fact that you don't need to bust your knuckles to entertain and amaze. I think you'll be glad you did.
OVER THE TOP: A multi-climax effect which ends with the discovery of four Royal Flushes and the rest of the deck separating into the four suits!
PURE LUCK: A double prediction effect where the magician predicts the location of a mate in the deck and the identity of a mystery card! Instant reset!
NOTHING BUT TROUBLE: A self-working card to pocket transposition which makes an excellent opener. The magician runs through the deck and removes the Joker, "a real troublemaker," and puts it in his pocket. The spectator fairly cuts to two cards which the magician claims will be used to create another card. Let's say the cards are the Jack of Hearts and the Five of Spades. This means that the created card could be a Jack of Spades or Five of Hearts. Let's say the spectator says the Five of Hearts. The magician snaps his fingers over the deck and spells "Five of Hearts," dealing one card for each letter. After the last letter, one card is seen reversed in the deck... the Joker! The magician reaches into his pocket and removes the Five of Hearts! The other two mates of the Five make an appearance for a stunning finale of the routine!
