On The Pass has been acclaimed as one of the best teaching videos on sleight-of-hand and is the best source for learning one of the more difficult sleights in card magic. Richard Kaufman who is a master of the Pass teaches you everything he knows on the subject. This is the only comprehensive course on this elusive secret of the experts.
One of the main uses of the Pass is that it allows you to control a selected card, to virtually any position in the deck, as soon as it is returned to the pack. It is a powerful weapon in the arsenal of any serious card magician and this video will inspire you to master it. Along the way you will be taught dozens of little secret maneuvers, touches, covers, angles, misdirection, choreography and much more that you can incorporated into your own preferred handling.
The Classic Pass, The Riffle Pass, The Jiggle Pass, Half A Jiggle Pass, Classic Pass False Cut, The Cover Pass, Herrmann Pass, Merlin's Herrmann Turnover Pass, Jacob Daley's Improved Herrmann Pass, The Double-Lift Shift, Steve Draun's Midnight Shift, The Half Pass and much more.
►False-Cut Ace Cutting: The four Aces are apparently lost in the deck and you cut to them one at a time using the Classic Pass False Cut.
►A Biddling Vanish: A spectator removes five cards from the deck that include the one they are thinking of. The five face up cards are placed in the middle of the deck but when the deck is re-spread the other four seem to have vanished… leaving the thought of card the only one that is still face up.
►Every Every Where: A spectator’s selection is shown on top of the deck, on the bottom of the deck, in the middle of the deck and then in your pocket.
►New Cavorting Aces: The red aces are placed on top and bottom of the deck and the black Aces are placed in the center. In an instant they change places. This is repeated several times under more impossible conditions until the reds are put on top and the blacks on the bottom. They momentarily vanish and then appear face up in the middle of the deck.
►Passing Along The Vanishing Aces: An ingenious routine by Jim Swain where the four Aces visually vanish from the top of the deck, one at a time, until they are all gone. As a finale they are found face up in the middle of the deck.
