Narcissus (Chris Philpott)
- Difficulty Rating: EASY
- Category: CLOSE-UP MAGIC
- Product Type: MAGIC TRICK
Based on Chris Philpott’s brilliant “100th Monkey principle” that has taken the stand-up magic and mentalism world by storm this is his attempt to customize it for intimate and close-up performances. All you need is a spectator with a camera phone and some of these printed cards and papers and you will create memorable magic. Magic that will stay on their phone!
In each effect, a picture of a spectator taken on his own phone magically changes under the most impossible conditions.
The five included routines are:
►The Fortune Teller: You give your volunteer a card with a picture of a "haunted" fortune teller machine on one side and Romani (Gypsy) writing on the other. You borrow a cell phone and take a picture of the spectator holding the card -- but when they look at the photo, the foreign words have changed to English and they give the spectator's fortune! It is uncannily accurate and can even predict a lucky number or chosen card!
►Unhypnotized: As you begin to hypnotize someone you discover that she is already hypnotized! Then the magic begins... A beautiful, empowering routine.
►The Pledge: You ask a spectator to pledge to assert his free will by reading a statement on video: "My will is strong! I will make a free choice" Then he chooses a card under very fair conditions. Yet it turns out that you've controlled their mind: when they look at the image on their phone it says, "My will is stolen!" and names the card they chose.
►I Want to See My Future: Predicting the future is a dangerous thing and sometimes people "kill the prophet." So to verify a spectator's consent, you take a picture of her holding a card that reads "I want to see my future!" But when she looks at the photo, the words on the card have changed to reveal her future in a surprising, accurate and funny way.
►No Art: A spell from Harry Potter reveals a secret thought. You ask a spectator to think of a person (or place or thing) and then you have them hold a card that says "I am thinking of a thing." You cast the "Aparecium" revealing spell from Harry Potter and now when they look at the picture, their secret thought is visible.
The package includes:
►A 90-minute instructional DVD.
►A 66-page instructional pdf booklet.
►12 postcards to instantly perform all the routines.
►145 extra images in jpg format that you can print.
"I couldn't recommend this more!!!!!! It's powerful, brilliant and above all effective. It's a no-brainer... this should be in your arsenal if you want to blow people’s minds. Bravo Chris, you've done it again! IMHO I feel this kind of magic is the next step in the evolution of our profession... advancing us to be perceived beyond mere mortals." …Joe Monti
