Magic download (video) by Benjamin Earl ($18.00)

Ben Earl caused a SENSATION last year when we released his Less is More hardbacked book, as well as his deck-switching treatise. People know him for beautiful and intricate sleight-of-hand. Today we present a new side of Benjamin Earl, with two ENTIRELY self-working card tricks, each one an exquisite example of smart construction and subtlety.

Ram Jollock - An INSANE magician-fooler, this effect requires absolutely no sleight-of-hand at all. ANY pack can be used and this is what happens: a spectator cuts anywhere into a deck and remembers the card he cut to and IMMEDIATELY replaces the packet back so the full deck is square. The cards are cut and shuffled multiple times by the spectator, and then the selection is moved anywhere he likes in the pack. When you take back the deck, you can immediately spread through and remove the chosen card.

Red Herring - In a completely free manner a pack of cards is shuffled and a card is remembered. The pack is then given any number of shuffles and cuts, and yet the performer is able to instantly find the selected card.

Two downloads. Total running time: 37 mins.

  • Jim asks: What is the difference between the two effects?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: From a general effect perspective, they are the same: a card is selected, then lost, then found. From a procedural perspective, there are many psychological details that make the audience 100% sure that you can't find the card. From a methodological perspective, each effect utilizes a completely different method. I hope that helps!

Great effects ... both deceptive in the extreme !!! One reminiscent of an Anneman effect ... the other allows the opportunity for "jazz magic" --- both are fun to perform - and to learn. Two of the most fun effects I have seen/learned in recent times !!!

This is so good so i ´ll cry, easy to do and it will make you look like a card pro !!

It is such a pleasure to learn new and useful techniques from a true professional.
There are thousands of things taught in these videos, besides the main technique/trick you purchase. Things that will serve any magician, any professional, to achieve great things in anything they undertake.

There are tricks, and there are University Degree offerings, in the magic world. Most of the tricks will be forgotten, when not tossed to the trash, eventually, but these jewels will remain in our arsenal for a lifetime.

I learn to love magic again, a deeper love, a stronger love, an even more committed bond and responsibility after I saw this two videos. I long for more nurturing material like this. Thank you for making these available to all of us.

Chapeau.

If you don't perform card magic because you cannot manipulate the cards - you need these downloads. Absolutely no card skill is required. The spectator does it all. The result is as the video shows. The 'assistant' cannot believe you found their card. Play this in any style, straight, comedic, mentalism the choice is yours. BUY IT NOW

This is so good I hesitate to write this review because I don't want everyone to know this material so I can fool them one day :)
Two thumbs up and a twist!

 
Reviewer

Tristan

Two excellent effects!! Both magician foolers, these tricks are exactly as advertised.

Note, that Ramjollock is the harder of the two, being a bit finicky at first to learn, but with a bit of practice its mechanics can be learned with precision. Ben teaches expert manipulation of a spectator, and his insight is well worth the price of the download.

 
Reviewer

I've been a big fan of Ben Earl's effect "The Answer" due to its method relying more on the psychological rather than hardcore sleight of hand. The 2 effects in this bundle follow the same path, which I'm a huge fan of.

One could just buy these downloads for the tricks and be done with it, however I feel there's more value in trying to understand his way of thinking behind the tricks and what makes them strong.

Highly recommended for both novices and the more advanced, and can definitely recommend getting the bundle instead of buying them singly, as you can learn 2 completely different methods for locating a selected card.

 
Reviewer

Both effects are strong and easy to perform. Get them now. Highly recommended.

These are two beautiful effects that are baffling and fun filled. Benjamin does such a wonderful presentation, that alone is worth the price. All in all a great buy.

ben earl, in my opinion, is one of the greats. this purchase was worth its weight in gold. what is amazing about ben is his genius in structuring his magic. it goes far and beyond the actual effect. this beautiful structuring makes the effect a work of art. ben is an excellent instructor, who explains everything in meticulous detail.
i highly recommend this ‘impossible’ bundle.

Andreas

You are a beginner?
You have no skills in slight of hands, vanishing cards or similar things. But you are looking for „something with cards“.
Well, this was my starting point.
To make it short: in case you are at the same skills-position like me „Impossible by Benjamin Earl“ is something for you.

My rating: worth the money because it is not the usual stuff and relatively easy to learn.

Good video production, Very enjoyable to watch and enjoyable to learn.When watching the demo its as if its imposssble, as in how is this possable to find the selected chosen card, but once you no the secret, it is so very simple that you will be suprised by the methods used, they are both different with the mechanics of the magic, but they are both foolers of what looks like a impossable location..i do recomend to watch the video all the way through, as ben gives different outs, its as if you think it has gone wrong on one of them, but it hasnt, ben explains this very clear, which is very easy to folllow, nothing complicated, but worth undestanding all the methods Ben uses, as this depends on what happens on the out, and a very simple method on how to fix this, without the spectator even knowing whats going on, this will make total sence once you watch this.
A Great teacher, Geat card magic.

Very nice—the principle itself is ancient and extremely simple, but also somewhat transparent, so what you get here is a technique that obscures it under multiple layers of mental misdirection. Personally I was not fooled, but only because I use this principle all the time, and the ideas about how to better obscure it are invaluable.

This is a brilliant download - just as it says, it's a 'real fooler', The demonstration and explanation are both excellent - and like all the best tricks, the secret is both simple, devious and foolproof. I can't wait to try this one out!

I am new to Ben Earl and I have say, I'm now a fan. What I love about both these routines is that he makes the simple look miraculous. Neither routine is technically difficult, but Ben Earl proves that 80% of magic is attitude. Much here to learn about timing and off-handedness of approach. More than worth the price.

This really is an amazing piece of magic. Gives such an impact. A little knacky but wow, confuses people every time.

Ramjollock is an interesting trick that gives your audience the supposed control while you are in control for the entire effect. It appears that it can be done with fewer or more cuts and shuffles but, at some point, you really need to bring it to an end. I was fooled and I hope to be fooled still (until I learn Red Herring) I'll wait before watching it.

I thought Ramjollock was an interesting trick that gives your audience even more control of the deck. Red Herring is another one that can be done shorter or longer, so with your own presentation. I think I would've added another cut and/or shuffle just for the fun of it. I remained fooled until I finally watched the effect (just now) and feel this is one I can do. I think this one is much easier than Ramjollock and possibly even more impressive.

 
Reviewer

Jonathan

This set of tricks is really impossible. I can usually catch moves and secrets pretty quickly but this one had me. I like the simplicity of both methods and the way it is both a spectator trick and a magician trick. It should be perfect for any card magicians (and possibly mentalists).

 
Reviewer

So simple and so so great!!

 
Reviewer

John

Loved the teaching, very clear & concise. Totally deceptive meat or & easy to do! 5 stars

 
Reviewer

Robert

Extremely clever. Impossible for the spectator to figure it out. The best part is that the spectator does all the work including shuffling. No slight of hand is necessary so all the magi's attention can be on performance, a great plus, since spectator management is important. Perhaps the only weakness is that this ends up being another "find a chosen card in the deck," rather than a more exciting conclusion. But it is a real fooler!

Ben Earl takes an effect from Expert Card Technique and gives it some of his own flair. He also talks through many fears you might have when attempting such brazen card business, providing a few compensation techniques and some outs as well. A 3 star DL jumps to 4 thanks to this special VI sale price. Check it out
