Write up by the great Martin Breese:
This is something that has
to be seen to be believed. It was released recently by Russell Hall - my
friend from Sheffield, Yorkshire - who runs the Magick Lounge and who for
many years assisted me with my business by storing and shipping out my
This video does not use special or
Russell is a very modest man and when I will run around screaming from the
rooftops Russell plays it all down. He told me that this was “quite good”.
Quite good is an understatement ….it is out of this world.
Russell had the gimmick and DVDs available for the first time at the IBM
convention in Eastbourne and gave me a set and when I got home and watched
the DVDs and played around with the gimmick I just had to have it to offer
to my clients. This is something really special and I give it 12 out of 10
as it is stunning.
This revolutionary new gimmick will transform your magic with coins and
other small objects. You can perform stunning vanishes, inexplicable
transformations and knockout routines.
When I first watched the two DVDs that are supplied together with the
special device and some special coins I just could not believe that this was
not fake photography but it just isn’t.
The inventor, John Gray, turned up at Russell Hall’s magic shop and stood in
front of Russell. He was not wearing a jacket or a long sleeved shirt but a
T-shirt and item after item just vanished as if by magic. Russell told me
that he did not have an idea of how these vanishes and changes were
performed. Watch the You Tube video above and you will see what I mean.
What you see is what this effect is!
Here is Russell’s own
description of what it is all about: Until his retirement John Gray was a
busy professional magician working top night clubs and cruises throughout
Europe and the USA. So you would expect his material to be practical and
commercial. John developed the original gimmick a few years ago for
vanishing and switching small objects, especially coins. Now everything is
clearly explained on two DVDs and the bits and pieces you need are supplied
The Vortex Principle is based around a cunning and versatile device which is
as useful as a Topit but you don’t have to wear a jacket, a tie, or a
sleeved shirt. It will give you the edge you need with coins, finger rings,
poker chips, keys, etc.
DVD 1: Begins with
an incredible comprehensive introduction to the Vortex Principle. You'll
see, filmed clearly and close up, amazing vanishes, transformations.
You'll see coins visibly torn and pierced, keys bent, rings instantly
jumping from hand to finger.
DVD 2: Coin Craft,
shows in detail two complete routines, with a series of surprising and
entertaining effects: The One-Coin Wonder and The Really Weird Coin Trick.
These show the Vortex Principle in action. There are no ‘knuckle-busting’
moves, and many of the techniques required have been honed and adapted to
suit modern working conditions.
The Vortex principle comes as a
boxed double-DVD set complete with gimmick. This could be one of the best
things you will buy this year. Martin Breese
