Topic: Need Recommendation for producing $100 bills
Message: Posted by: GeneTony (Apr 21, 2014 01:31PM)
Hi friends,

Besides magic, I also speak at business events. I will be speaking at a business event that has nothing to do with "magic" at all. At random times throughout my talk, I'd like to produce a $100 bill at my fingertips on demand. I'm looking for a method or device that will allow me to do this cleanly, without any typical routining. I want to be able to just reach up and pull a $100 out of thin air. Should be able to do this at least at 4 different times during the presentation.

I can think of several ways to accomplish this, but I'd love your feedback regarding any tricks on the market that may accomplish this. Thanks!

There are different way's of coarse.
Will you be wearing a sportcoat or
long sleeve's?Or will you be in a short sleeve shirt?
It all depend's on the attair.

This comes to mind.

If you can find Osaka bills this would be a way to go, as it is done one handed and in either hand.
Wearing a jacket gives you all kind of load areas.
The nice thing is it is easily repeatable as you move about the stage.

Thank you guys, the first thing that came to mind for me too was Pablo's bare hand production... and I do own it. Not quite what I'm after though. Prefer one hand reaching out and a $100 materializes. Osaka bills don't work for the same reason. Keep the ideas coming please :-)

Any other suggestions, please?

GeneTony,
I think I understand what you are saying, Please watch this clip of Cyril doing Osaka Bills. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzgPro39UwE
When I did Osaka Bills it was bare handed production from no where. Not the full routine as Jahn Gallo did producing additional bills from behind
the bill(s) he was holding.

Thanks John, that's more in line with what I need. Now if I can find it! :-)

Edit: I found it, but not quite what I need, because I need to produce a single bill from an empty hand at different times. Not a continuous production. Thanks anyway. The search continues!

GeneTony,

Osaka bills don't necessarily have to be done as a continuous production. You can retrieve and ditch the stack as needed.
Message: Posted by: GeneTony (Apr 24, 2014 09:55PM)
But the stack does not allow me to show an empty hand and produce one single $100 Bill.

Hey Gene,
Somewhere on here there is a link to a youtube clip of a guy waking up to homeless people and doing a one-handed bill production. I know it's not Stuart Edge, he does a lot of that sort of thing, but I can't seem to find the link now. Maybe someone will read this and remember where it is in the forums or on youtube. It was mentioned that it looked like Pablo's Barehand Production but it was much cleaner and more fluid with no indication of a TT anywhere. It sounds like it might be what you're looking for.... if you can figure out who it is and if it's a marketed effect.

Thanks - I did see that video, and THAT is pretty much the effect I'm after. No idea whether or not he's using an off the shelf gimmick or if it's something he created for himself. If anyone knows more, please chime in. Thanks!

Gene,
Do you by chance have the link to that youtube video? I can't seem to find it for some reason.
Thanks -

I think this is the thread you are looking for:

The bill production is a drop, not a reach out and produce type of production.

Thanks John.... now all I need to do is to figure out how to do it

Gene, you do not have to use the stack of Osaka Bills to produce a single bill. The original idea came to Jahn Gallo while in Japan after seeing how some customers would flash produce a single bill to pay for the check. From this move he developed the bunch production of bills and then how to stack the bill to have a continual production.

Your needs seem to be a palm and produce, from what you are describing, and lead me to believe staging the bills (say 4) folded in the Osaka method, on your jacket in the most easily accessed place. When needed, use either hand to get the bill and produce it when you need it.

Regardless of the method of production, the bill will have to be concealed somewhere until needed, moved to the hand and produced. The Osaka method of folding the bill allows it to fit in, and be concealed by, the hand, as well as being simple to secret on your person.

I start with Misers Dream into Osaka Bills, and finish with spring bills.

Hope you find what you need.

Thank you very much Pete. I do understand the working of the Osaka bills, and know a single bill could be accessed and palmed. I'd really like my hand to be clearly empty immediately before producing the bill though. I think I've devised a way to do this. I'll work on it this week and do some testing, then post the results here.

I would be remiss if I did not mention the venerable Money Maker Machine. It clearly would be a way to produce a good number of bills - and with a switch-out for another “loaded” machine you could produce even more. If you are deciding to use multiple methods, this might be one of them.

Hi Rhett, Are you referring to the mechanical roller type of machine? If so, I'm not sure how this relates to a bare-handed production of a bill. I think I may be missing something here.

HAs anyone experienced Osaka bill production in close up ?
