Traffic Lights - DVD

 

You produce three different coloured gaming counters, manipulate them from hand to hand, to the mouth, and from the pocket. Then they magically transform into a multi-coloured ball.  

There are no gimmicks involved and no extra counters. This routine uses pure sleight-of-hand with just the three counters you produce. The same routine can also be done with three ordinary coins making it a perfect impromptu performance of magic. Also taught is a three-stage one coin / counter routine.

Includes coloured counters and final load ball.

Running Time: 38 minutes

The Key Project - DVD & Props

 

Includes two special metal key fobs.

1. You show the spectator a blank key-fob and ask them to hold it. They think of a number and remember the corresponding item from a list on your phone. The item they are thinking off then appears on the key-fob.

2. Holding the blank key-fob, they make numerous choices eliminating imaginary playing cards until only one remains. That card then appears on the key-fob.

3. After giving the spectator the blank key-fob, they pick a coloured key from a small collection. They open their hand to see the fob has changed colour to match the key. 

4. Two keys with coloured covers on are shown and placed into the spectator's hand. One is removed and with a quick wave, it changes places with the key still in their hand, before vanishing.

Other effects include the Bending Key, Static Keys, Shopping Tag Predication, Haunted Key and additional ideas & effects by Alex Fisher. More tricks and jpegs are available in the data folder, accessible via a computer.

Running Time: 56 minutes
