Title : Julian Bonds Dance " Home Video Prediction "
Genre :Stage/Parlour
format: Pdf via instant download
price : $20
URl : http://www.julianbondmusic.com -then navigate to magic/illusions section

Effect: 5 randomly selected audience members provide 5 pieces of information (their favorite soft drink, a cartoon character, etc.). After the information has been supplied, a "home video" is played showing the magician announcing his prediction - which matches exactly.

I think this is GREAT... a little work on the performers part, but once done its done. The effect plays as described. I have been looking for something like this and the prediction systems are way out of my financial ability a couple I looked at were in the 3000.00 range.. the most recent to my knowledge by Paul Romhany is I believe $350.00 and that is more than I can afford... Don't let the low affordable price of $25.00 discourage you, as this is a great piece of magic.. with a little thinking you can change the predictions to whatever type of routine you would like.. Dream Vacation, Dream Date etc..but this will work out of the box and get great reaction from your audience.. Regarding the work required, nothing hard at all.. If you own or can borrow a video camera to make your prediction tape your set.

You can go to Julians site and view a live demo and even get a sample of the pdf.. Im very happy with this, and I think you will be too.

To view the demo go here and select " Watch Video "

Here the direct link to the sample of the pdf

Julian offers several other things and I think Im going to check out a few of these as well, if they are as good as this " Home Video Prediction " I know I will be happy

This is an interesting effect. If Im correct, the huge point of the effect is in the presentation. Everything is F***** but its GREAT how it seems SO RANDOM. I noticed on Julians site the BIAB, now that effect looks really good. Im tempted to purchase that ebook.

Whoa this effect looks great... Is it easy to perform?

Easy to perform? It should be, but I'll never know. I bought this just to see the thinking behind a couple of the predictions and was dissapointed at what I learned. (I was expecting more and should have known better, my fault).
Having said that, my dissatisfaction stems from the fact that this "method" wouldn't work given the way I perform and the people I perform for, which is no fault of Mr. Bond's.
If you are doing a show for a large audience as in the demo video and anything goes in terms of method, then this could work well for you.
