Hi Everyone,

I'm very excited to share something with you that I've been working on with some help from a few members of our forum. It's called "The HaLo Project - The Magic of Harry Lorayne" and the following video will explain more about it.



The cost is $10 and can be ordered at Lybrary.com

Here is the direct link: https://www.lybrary.com/halo-project-1-p-922630.html  

In volume 1, you will learn:

"What Are the Odds?"
"Relationships Plus Royal"
"The Sting"
"Fourtitude"
"Easier 6-Card Royal"

Volume 2 is complete and will soon be available for download at Murphy's Magic (check here for updates).

My hope is that the HaLo Project with help magicians discover or rediscover the wonderful magic that Harry has created over the years.

I'm very grateful to him for his willingness to allow me to share his magic with you and I'm honored to count him as a friend.

Best,

Rudy

Congratulations to Mr Harry Lorayne, and congratulations to Rudy and the other contributors who are making this happen.

I'm especially pleased about the fact that this will draw attention to some hidden gems in Harry's books, and help give a high profile to tricks that may otherwise be buried or ignored within the large body of his work, and thereby raise awareness of some great magic. 

Video teaching to accompany the books is also a real positive; in today's era we benefit from the best of both worlds, books and video, although of course these videos will give access to some of Harry's magic even if you don't have the books - another good thing.

An excellent initiative!!!

Rudy picked some fine examples of Harry's effects for this first "installment." Even some help from Johnny New York.  Well worth the re-visit of Harry's tricks. There's another thread asking about royal flush endings, there's enough material here to keep you busy for a while.  Good job Rudy and Johnny and thanks to Harry for the material.

I'm so glad you are doing this Rudy! This is a great way to re-enter overlooked tricks into our repertoire. I personally love fourtitude!

Thanks Tom!

I've already got volumes 2 & 3 nearly completed. I just need to record the live performances.

Volume 2 is going to feature an effect that I truly believe is the best card trick that I've ever learned. I'm not just saying that.

It's something that I overlooked in Reputation Makers and that Johnny NewYork submitted to me for the HaLo Project. I performed it for some friends just the other night and they were absolutely amazed!

My friend Drake (a non-magician) said that it was the best trick that I've ever showed him (and he's seen a LOT of magic). I don't know how it works, but it is most definitely a Reputation Maker!

You know Rudy, this would be an excellent time to advertise that a few of these tricks come from Jawdroppers, which is out of print. These videos might be the closest you can get to the material nowadays.

Hi Kevin, 

I want to make sure that you're able to perform this and apologize if my explanation wasn't sufficient.

I've created a subcategory in this section so that we can discuss your questions and concerns. The password for that section is the same password used to access the video.

Rudy

Thanks Paul! Again, I appreciate your willingness to help with this project.

I also have Michael Vincent on board! He'll be filming his contribution the HaLo Project while he's lecturing in Lebanon.

I know how much you fellas love Harry and how much he's influenced your magic.

Thanks again!

Rudy

Head here: http://www.themagiciansforum.com/?forum=683144

Click "Volume 1", and enter the same password you received for accessing the digital video download.  That should give you access to the sub-forum dedicated to discussions on the Volume 1 video. 

Currently there is already a thread entitled “What Are the Odds?”

Rudy is the best one to answer that.

He has posted a video with a performance of one of the great effects included in Volume 2 (link).

Yes indeed, and I've got it downloaded... fun since this is a 3-day weekend for me 😉

It was this project that Paul Gordon mentioned on FB that got me to find the forum.

Thanks Dave. I'm using the password associated with my purchase, too. It worked fine until a week ago (or so). Has it an expiration time?

Yep, and it's excellent!  I especially like Four by Four (great mentalism routine) and Sandwich Locator (very clever), although Color Gathering Plus is also excellent.

I've spent the last couple of days working on a detailed review, and have just posted it here:
