Run Silent Run Deep answers the critics of Silent
Running with an in depth breakdown of the Silent Running procedure
by Steve Shufton. Here are the professional nuances allowing everyone
to effectively deliver the goods. And, then it delivers the performance
material. Routines with cards, invisible dice, diaries, cell-phones, and
more. Writing on cards, cards to pocket, transpositions, vanishing thoughts,
and more. From close-up to stage, you will find some amazing material
within these pages.

Force In The Shadows
- A critical examination of the Silent Running Procedure with the intention
of providing the nuance and understanding to ensure a convincing execution.
Stripped - The bare guts of the script with commentary removed.
Off: Silent But Deadly - Steve's treatment of the Brainwave effect
allowing the entire routine to carried out in the spectator's own hands.
The performer NEVER touches the deck.
Left Unsaid - Picking up where "Speechless" left off,
Steve teases out extra nuances and proposes multi-key sets for simultaneous
Jamie Badman & Colin
Miller (The Underground Collective)
- A charming effect, complete with printable photos to add to your wallet.
One of Jamie and Colin's classics, given the Silent Running Treatment.
Present - Clever gimmicks allow mind-numbing mental transpositions
of cards mentally selected from the CrossRoads Set.
Future - Combining Silent Running with Greg Rostami's iforce
has never been this sweet. You deserve an iphone, just so you can perform
Richard Busch's Think-A-Card
- Richard takes us on a different journey, one with a "nod to the
dodge" and a different brand of digital finesse.
- Two "thought-of" cards appear in an isolated packet. A full-on
routine worthy of stage or formal presentation. Explores the use of an
Osborn inspired count procedure.
Packet Concepts - Taking advantage of "small packets"
and their inherent particulars-in combination with the CrossRoads Set-to
create new effects.
Thought - Continuing to explore "packet concepts" the
author details further applications and ideas, this time, with the Elmsley
Count at the heart of matters.
Deck At The Other End (DATOE) - The polar opposite of the CrossRoads
Deck. Instead of any card in the CrossRoads Set being absent, to the count
of 51-with this deck-there's always a duplicate of the "thought-of"
card, and a count of 53!
Transposition - Another "feature" routine that plays
wonderfully on stage, formally, or under casual performing circumstances.
Possibly one of the easiest and most convincing transpositions of a "thought-of"
card (this side of the CrossRoads).
- A wonderful property of the Deck At The Other End is revealed
and it's uses pondered. Imagine having a duplicate of ANY "thought-of"
card, immediately at hand. Well that's what this is all about-that kind
- The Headway principle is applied to create a formal and powerful "simulation"
of the acclaimed "Berglas effect." A card is "thought-of"
and any number between one and fifty-two is named. You don't need me to
tell you happens next...
- This is a new tactic for Direct Mind Reading (Silent Running, 2010).
It eliminates what some considered an "iffy" bit, and leads
you directly to the specifically "thought-of" card for a full-on
"neuro-blast" of a finish.
- An expanded CrossRoads Set to match the numeric options offered by two
imaginary dice. Play along...
Faro - An impromptu method for setting any borrowed deck for
a lovely demonstration of pure thought reading. Using Faro shuffles, of
of the lambs
- Having your entire audience turn their cell phones OFF (as part of a
routine) is sheer genius. And, that's just the beginning! Crazy and effective
- Months, days, and events (lucid dreams) collide in this wonderful application
of Silent Running Principle to the "Diary Effect." So many possibilities
- Just you and the spectator, sitting in an "all white room".
She is asked to imagine the walls of the room changing color...
- "Imagined Card at Imagined Number Unspoken". The
title says it all. This turns The White Room into a physical entity, with
cards in hand.
- Mentalist and electronics wizard, Christopher Taylor saw a perfect match
of his Solstice Wallet to Silent Running. Here's the application and related
- Quite independently of Christopher Taylor (see above) Bill concocted
his own mating of Silent/Solstice. From an entirely different angle, and
sweet as can be.
- I have no idea what sparked this, but Bernardo decided to number the
backs of his cards with pen, and apply Silent Running. Great result!
on Silent Running
- Hiro-san notes the language barrier with Japanese audiences and povides
a well thought out solution and in depth routine.
- Matthew has a certain way of going about things. A certain attitude.
Here's how he and the ideas in Silent Running meshed.
Voodoo Finger, Edgework, Impromptu Invisible Deck, The Sharpie Principle,
and more await you in this crazy and inspired BSmith section.
Running For Stage
- Italy's Francesco Tesei takes us behind the scenes with his full blown
stage presentation. Lots of wonderful ideas here.
Card To Wallet
- A direct way to ensure your CrossRoads Set always falls into a "cop-able"
position. Ideal for "Card To Wallet" workers.
Frixion - The clever use of a Frixion pen assures you have a
magical "out" no matter which of the CrossRoads "pair"
a spectator has chosen.
- Silent Running applied to the solar system, galactic events, and the
special star maps of Dr Elmer William Bishop.
