"Dave has done it again! Using common principles in uncommon ways he has created some killer commercial routines that are well within the reach of any magician or mentalist." - JAMES WENT
Dave Forrest, the creative mind that brought you 'trickery', '2wo faced', 'encased', 'radio rental' and the worldwide best seller 'colour burn' is back with 'Forrest's 3' - a trio of all new, show stopping effects that will go straight into your performing repertoire!
The new material on this dvd bears all the usual Forrest hallmarks - powerful, practical and obtainable magic. Direct, hard hitting effects coupled with 'no fuss' methodology. Down to earth presentations and in-depth explanations covering every detail of each effect. You'll be performing these new miracles in no time!
Effect: You place a folded business card - a prediction - on the table in full view. Your spectator is asked to imagine three coins. They are then asked to select one of the coins, toss it in the air and catch it, calling heads or tails. Let's imagine they call TAILS! You open your prediction - inside you have accurately predicted both the denomination of the coin they imagined AND whether it would land heads or tails!
Inspired by Max Maven's effect 'Positive/Negative', this is the ultimate 'packs small, plays big' effect! And, because the entire routine requires just one very small prop (just half the size of your business card!) and is incredibly easy to do you'll be carrying it everywhere you go and performing it every chance you get! Best of all, 'Positive Thinking' totally fries laypeople thanks to the fact that the final prediction is as clear as day! Whether they called heads or tails, you can show with complete confidence and absolutely no ambiguity that you predicted it ahead of time. There are no switches, no secret writing, no sleight of hand and yet you are always 100% correct! 'Positive Thinking' will work with absolutely any currency and also affords you the opportunity to hand out a business card! The ultimate in portable, modern mentalism! At this price - it just makes sense!
PLUS BONUS MATERIAL!
THE 50p SWINDLE
Also included in this video download is a clever swindle that allows you to actually have the spectator just IMAGINE ANY THREE COINS at the start! Yes - they can choose from a handful of imaginary coins and you STILL accurately predict the outcome!
'HEAVY MENTAL TOO' : PERFORMED AND EXPLAINED
Dave's mental coin effect, 'Heavy Mental' from the 'Attack of the Copper Silver Coin!' DVD gets a new lease of life thanks to the streamlined methodolgy behind 'Positive Thinking'! If you're familiar with the original you'll love the super simplified handling of the all new 'Heavy Mental Too'!
Effect: You show a deck of playing cards - they're blank on the back and on the face you have written all the letters of the alphabet, one letter on each card. The spectator shuffles the deck and selects any four cards. He is then asked to form a word from the four cards chosen. If it so happens that he can make more than one word - he is allowed a COMPLETELY FREE CHOICE of which word he would like to settle on. A prediction that has been in full view throughout is then shown to accuratley match the freely chosen word!
'Idiom' truly is an audience pleaser! The organic props are genuinely interesting to laypeople and the fairness of the entire procedure - from the spectator shuffling the deck to the completely free choice word finally arrived at - looks and feels so fair that your spectator will be left with nowhere to go; it's innexplicable! And, the effect can performed with a variety of different outcomes each time - you are not limited to the same four letter word each time, in fact, you're not even limited to using four letter words! Everything is taught in complete detail and it's such an easy routine to perform that you'll be stunning your audiences with it in no time!
THE FORREST TRIUMPH
Effect: You announce that you will give a demonstration of shuffle tracking but that you will go even further than normal and actually track cards in a deck which is mixed face up and face down! The deck is very fairly mixed this way a number of times then you decide to take it even further and have the spectator remember one of the cards from within the chaotic mess you've made of the deck! With this done you FAIRLY FAN THE DECK TOWARDS THE SPECTATORS - IT IS SEEN TO BE GENUINELY MIXED FACE UP INTO FACE DOWN. You even give it one final weave - just to be sure! Now, with no corrective manouvers whatsoever, the four Aces are suddenly produced - you have succesfully 'shuffle tracked' the four strongest cards in the pack! FInally, you spread the cards to show that you've also righted the entire deck! Every card is facing the same way exept for the card they're thinking of AND it's three mates!
Dave has kept 'The Forrest Triumph' under wraps for YEARS! It has only seen the light of day in front of lay people and a few select magician friends - all of whom have been VERY positive about the method - in particular the incredibly fair 'fan display' of face up and face down cards. This incredible card effect has been tweaked and honed over time into a stunning performance piece that can now, finally be yours! Every detail, every sleight and nuance including all the presentation points that help make the effect engaging and utterly impossible are taught in full detail! Drag your next audience kicking and screaming into disbelief and annoy your magician buddies while you're at it! 'The Forrest Triumph' can't fail to impress!
