View Clip// Twist their thoughts. Distort perception.
A collaboration with ideas from Wayne Houchin, Michael Ammar, Kenneth Peh, and Jonathan Bayme. A card is chosen. In this case, it's the Six of Diamonds. The Four of Diamonds is also used. You clearly place the Six of Diamonds in the spectator's closed hands (in a sandwich manner), holding on to the Four of Diamonds.
As you slowly shake the Four, the pips -- that is, the diamonds -- are seen to visually multiply and move across the card to form the Six of Diamonds. The spectator opens their hands to find the Four of Diamonds, and all is handed out for complete examination.
There's a reason Cyril (famed Japanese magician) performed a variation of this effect on national television. Imagine being able to allow your audience to actually SEE a card visually change. Now do it.
Wayne Houchin (performer & theory11's Creative Director) guides you through each phase of the effect, teaching his original version utilizing the classic Moving Pips card (included). In addition, learn Michael Ammar's "Visually Yours" -- the routine that started it all. Taught in a high-resolution DVD format, you will learn every nuance of the effect.
The psychology, the moves, performance tips -- It's all here. By far, one of the hottest releases in magic this year. Don't believe it? Read the reviews.
Distortion is THE most visual change I perform. I simply love it! The DVD is taught on a very 1 on 1 teaching perspective. Wayne explains how to take care of the gimmick and exactly each step in the performance. I can literally perform this with my eyes closed. There is no sleights that are challenging. All you need is basic knowledge on how to hold a deck (seriously, I am not being sarcastic).
When I perform Distortion, I use it as my closer. It is so visually appealing that the audience will beg you to do more! The gimmick takes less than 30 seconds to reset. The finish that Houchin teaches leaves you clean and lets the cards be examined.
Honestly, buy this. Even if you are unsure where to spend you money, this trick is definitely for you.
