Título Original : Something More Than an Illusion by Henry Evans
listed price is unitary price)
it’s been a while since you’ve watched a magician perform and have sat there
totally clueless, you’ve apparently never seen Henry Evans work. And in
this, his first ever video outing, Henry generously parts with the secrets
that made him a Gold Medal winner at FISM 2000.
First, you’ll be slack jawed at the amazing magic that Henry creates...and
then you’ll be thoroughly delighted by how it’s all done-diabolical cleverness
rather than knuckle-busting sleight-of-hand. It’s out-of-the-box magical
thinking that’s relatively easy to do but guaranteed to mystify and delight
even the most jaded magical audiences. Henry will make you fall in love
with magic all over again!
Modern Times - Henry’s opening effect at FISM. Watch as the case
vanishes instantly without a trace, leaving only a deck of cards in the
performer’s hands. If that wasn’t enough, a red and blue deck instantly
Rising Card -
You’ll think you know how this is done when the card rises from a card
case the spectator is holding; that is, until all is left for the spectator
- Originally a marketed effect. Four signed Queens are lost in the deck
and then jump out onto the table apparently of their own volition. Another
miracle straight from Henry’s FISM act!
Perfect Triumph - Another magician fooler!
The performer then mixes up a deck, first shuffled by a spectator, into
a face-up/face-down condition. The cards are magically righted and then
shown to be in perfect, factory order!
Perfect Control I - A chosen card from
one deck is set aside. A second deck is shown to be completely normal
and then, instantly, all the cards of one suit are shown to have turned
face up in numerical order— well, almost all. The only one missing from
the sequence is the same suit and value of the spectator’s selection!
Perfect Control II - A deck of cards is
shown to be normal. Four cards are randomly selected from a second deck.
When the first deck is re-spread, four cards have mysteriously turned
over—and are shown to match the selections!
3D Photograph - A whimsical miracle. The performer
shows a photograph of himself holding a silk handkerchief. The wallet
is closed and when it’s reopened, the silk handkerchief has magically
materialized and is shown to be now absent from the photo.
Rob The Bank -
A bill vanishes under impossible conditions and travels into the confines
of a tabled wallet. A magical story with a happy ending!
Cards In Tie - You’ll retire your Card
SwordA forever! The performer finds two selected cards by instantly threading
them onto his necktie!
2000 Three Card Monte
- Another previously marketed effect. Imagine being able to do the cleanest
Three Card Monte routine ever—where the spectator is totally convinced
they know where the money card is, only to discover that the card has
magically changed—and then hand the cards out as souvenirs!
Disappearing Deck - An entire deck of
cards disappears from the performer’s hands, leaving only the selected
card behind. The balance of the deck is then retrieved from the performer’s
inside jacket pocket.
Red and Blue - A multi-phased Oil and
Water routine where red and blue-backed cards continually separate until
increasingly impossible conditions. The last word on this classic effect!
Fork and Knife - It’s the classic transposition
where a knife wrapped in a handkerchief turns into a fork. Every kid knows
this one—except the part where a huge bottle is produced from the handkerchief!
Invisible Jumbo Coin - A jumbo coin disappears
from the performer’s hands with absolutely no cover and then, just as
mysteriously, reappears. A miracle that can be performed in short sleeves!
Impossible Penetration - A selected card
travels impossibly into the interior of a transparent plastic bag. A Visual
magic at its finest!
Vacuum Cleaner Card - A silk is “accidentally”
sucked up into a mini-vacuum cleaner. A card is selected and the apparently
insatiable vacuum removes the ink from its face. When the machine is taken
apart, the silk is recovered and shown to now bear the face of the selected
Tied Card -
An easy-to-do, flashy miracle! A string, tied around a card box, vanishes
in a flash of flame, only to be found tied around a selected card when
the box is opened.
My Prediction Is Your Card - A jumbo card
is freely shown as a prediction. A card is selected and replaced but the
performer’s prediction is apparently wrong. All end’s well, though, when
the spectator’s selection is shown to have vanished from the deck, only
to appear inside (yes, inside!) the jumbo card that was in plain sight
Chinese Miser’s Dream - Chinese coins
mysteriously travel and multiply in the performer’s bare hands. As a stunning
finale, four more jumbo coins are produced from between two absolutely
guileless playing cards. A no-sleeves, jawdropping miracle!
Silk Through Transparent Bag
- A silk instantly and visibly penetrates a transparent plastic bag tied
around the performer’s hand.
Time Machine - A silk instantly and visibly
vanishes from a drinking glass and, just as mysterAiously, reappears.
A visual stunner!
Fastest Trip In The World - If you blink,
you’ll miss it. A silk vanishes from one hand and instantly travels to
Remote Control Deck -
A deck of cards is shuffled by a spectator and set aside. A small packet
of cards is shown to consist of mixed colors. At the performer’s command,
the colors instantly separate in the small packet. The deck is then spread
to show that the colors also separated in like fashion.
Linking Rubber Bands - A handful of rubber
bands are examined by the audience and shown to be ordinary and distinctly
separate. The performer holds them on his outstretched palm and asks a
spectator to cover them. Instantly, the rubber bands are shown to be inextricably
Tribute to Varone - A regular-sized deck
is removed from its card case, which magically shrinks to half its previous
size. After failing to find a selected card, it’s found folded inside
Card From Top Hat - A great finale for
any close-up act. After having a card selected, the deck is placed into
a top hat and, upon his command, fly straight up into the air. When the
cards settle, the magician is seen to have caught the spectator’s chosen
Torn and Restored Flash Thread - A flashy
approach to the classic Gypsy Thread. A length of thread, broken into
smaller pieces, is instantly restored to its original length in a flash
Appearing Coins 1 - A practical and easy way to produce four
Appearing Coins 2 - Another ingenious
A and technically easy method of producing five coins.
Youth Machine - A deck of cards, shuffled
twice (once by the spectator!), is magically restored to its original
order, as if it traveled back in time to its “birth.”
