Pit Hartling was the first Vanishing Inc artist featured in a download (remember The Core?). Now he is back with two ingenious and offbeat card miracles, both together for just ten dollars.
Strange Attractors: Pit’s take on Larry Jennnings’ The Searchers plot is a real fooler! Two cards eerily sink into the pack to sandwich a chosen card. Notice how Pit’s handling is so, so free and hands-off. He merely squares the cards and magic happens. The “attraction” happens in two phases, which is particularly smart.
Odd Men Out: To find two selected cards, the performer changes the pack into all red cards, and then all black cards. The illusion is perfect, and it is accomplished using little more than a two-handed fan and a faro shuffle. You get lots of mileage out of a basic yet subtle method.

Wow! Just downloaded this and watched it. Looks amazing! Particularly the first effect, I'm amazed at how clean this looks and just how effective it is. They always say combining methods is the highest form of trick construction. Well, Hartling is using about four principles to make this thing work. He's engaging, funny, and clear in the description. FABULOUS. And, if you guys haven't checked out his book, Card Fictions, it's one of my all-time favorites.
THIS IS AWESOME! I just watched this and I LOVE IT. Pit is so smooth and funny, and those two tricks are awesome. Both are easy to get into and out of, and I'm already able to do Old Men Out. What I like about this effect is how different it is from the other card material I'm doing. I'm going to work on the sandwich effect, but I imagine it will come quite quickly.
Pit is a genius, massive fan of him & his magic, thank goodness we magicians are here to appreciate just how smart his routines are.
No more words needed, just buy this now, thank me later
Once I saw it's Pit Hartling, I just clicked it without question. You would not regret it!

the idea is simple and the outcome is good
This is a great little download, and the first trick fooled the hell out of me!
I picked this up because I had 'The Core' which is another brilliant trick, and this download kept up the same standard. I hope Vanishing Inc get more Pitt Hartling downloads!
