Here's a little preview of one of the routines from my next video release. It's called "Philter", and is a mind reading effect with cards.

Features:

*100% impromptu

*Any complete deck of cards can be used.

*The cards can be shuffled in any manner before starting the routine.

*Two spectators think of cards while the performer's back is turned.

*The performer turns back around to face his participants, and asks each of them two questions about their cards. The participants get to decide whether to answer these questions truthfully, or lie in their responses.

*The performer genuinely doesn't know what combination of truth/lie responses he will get, and even both participants can answer the questions in the same way.

*Despite these seemingly impossible conditions, the performer is able to unfailingly divine both cards being thought-of with no further questioning or fishing!

This is easy to do, requires no reset, and can be done any time a deck of cards is available. It can also be done with a symbol deck, such as the Zeneration-X deck.

Check it out:



This is going to be included along with a few other effects. A significant portion of the proceeds are going to be donated to the Eugene Burger Estate Scholarship Fund for the Magic & Mystery School in honor of his memory. I don't plan to make a lot of money from this, because I want to donate as much of the proceeds as I can. I hope you like this preview, and that you will support this project.

More to come...

As soon as I can get someone to help me film it. I don't have the technical capacity to do this on my own. I've asked Patrick Redford to help me with it, and he said that he'd get back to me.

This is only one of the new effects that will be taught on this project. There are a few others (not all cards) that I'm hoping will be well-received by people who understand and appreciate my approach.

Thank you very much for watching! I'll do my best to keep everyone updated with regard to a release date.

This is a simpler version. I think it’s better.
