The Final Picture by Rick Maue
Imagine this: An audience member places a medallion beneath any one of four inverted
cups. Then, a different audience member (who was outside the room while the object was
hidden) comes up to the table and she is successfully guided on a step-by-step
journey to the medallion with no help from anyone in the room-including the performer.
Please be aware that no sleights are required, and there are no secret assistants. Also
take note that the routine is designed for either close-up or stand-up performances. In
addition, everything that you will need to perform the routine is included (except of
course, the cups, the table, and the audience members).
And if all of this is not enough, we have also added a second routine (also complete with
the necessary props) that can be combined with The Final Picture to create a solid
ten-minute block of material that you can immediately drop right into your act.
But there is more...
Believe it or not, nothing that you have just read describes what this release is really
about. Simply put, this project is about creativity. Because in truth, this booklet
details the complete creative dissection of The Final Picture. The goal of this
project is to bring the process of creation to life-thus enabling the reader to understand
not only the how of the routine, but more importantly, the why.
In essence, The Final Picture is a look inside the private notebooks of Rick
Maue--not because he believes that his creations are so special, but because he believes
that ALL creations are indeed special. This book is about what it takes to bring your
ideas to life , and the questions that you need to ask in order to truly make your magic
