Static is a simple but Super effective levitation/suspension of a playing card. When creating this method Alan gave himself a few restrictions to make it as workable as possible in the real world. The effect had to be super visual but also easy to do so it was easily obtainable by any one, hobbyist and pros alike. It had be to performable from an ungimmicked deck that could be freely shuffled by the spectator and it had to be UN-GIMMICKED.

That's right, there are no threads magnets or anything else used in this routine. The only think you need is a deck of cards and you are ready to go

The card is free selection
The card is ungimmicked in any way
The routine is impromptu
Everything can be inspected before and after
There is no prior set up at all.

Very cool. Reminds me of the third phase of VISA by Daniel Garcia. The two could possibly work well together.

Excellent piece of impromptu magic from Alan. As always worth a look at.

Alan,
Hi. I purchased this and the email says that the link is temporary, and the video is not a download. How would I watch it in the future if I wanted to re-watch? Can I download it?

Hello mate just bookmark the page that displays the video and you should have no problems mate.

I've just checked out highflyer. It looks cool but needs a gimmick.. thankfully with static there is no gimmick at play. I uses just a normal deck

Will this be sold through Penguin?

thanks
Message: Posted by: Alan Rorrison (May 22, 2018 11:57AM)
They cant looks right under the card but most other angles are covered.. it is as practical as you see in the demo.
Message: Posted by: RNK (May 29, 2018 05:29AM)
I do like this. Easy to do and pretty much can be considered an impromptu effect. A lot of fun to practice as well!

Thanks man. This one of the ones where the method is SO to the point that I think a few people will look over it. But it does exactly what it says on the tin and looks fantastic as it does it.

This is really fun. Alan never disappoints. His teaching is really clear. I'm surprised not to see more reviews as it's worth it.

If you know Alan Rorrison`s "Static" effect you will see the difference between Alan's original version and my version.
My Gimmick is invisible and mobile.
Alan's Gimmick is also mobile but not invisible.

Here is my video, my version:

Hi MagieLucas

It's on his dvd Digits Of Deception with Alan Rorrison

[youtube]YWgrk9UJieo[/youtube]

Digits Of Deception is a deep dive into some of the most commercial, fun, and just purely magical magic conceivable.

Every routine on this packed two hour project could have been released as a stand alone trick - but Alan has slammed them all together for you in a veritable feast of awesomeness. PLUS he shows you how to make the necessary gimmicks yourself (from easily obtainable bits 'n bobs you'll have lying around), rather than charging you huge, overly inflated sums for making them up as 'ready-made' miracles.

Featuring:

RORY'S RISE - Alan's take on the legendary 'Raise Rise' by Ray Kosby! A signed selection is left sticking out near the bottom of the deck. With just a shake, and in FULL VIEW, the out jogged card disappears back into the deck and pops back out near the top. Another shake and that signed selection is on top! Alan teaches you how to make the ingenious (and ridiculously simple) gimmick to make this miracle all but self working!

KEY THING - A borrowed ring... a borrowed key... and yet, impossibly, you are able to squeeze the head of the key through the clearly too small opening of the ring! Super easy to do - looks like a miracle.

FRIES WITH THAT - The cleanest McDonalds Aces you've ever seen. Four Aces are lost in four packets. One by one those Aces vanish, only to reappear grouped together in the final packet. Then (and this is where it gets good), that packet is INSTANTLY re-spread to show the Aces have gone again. Where? The other cards are spread across the table and the Aces are back (and face up!). Alan will teach you how to make the sneaky gimmick that makes this trick so fooling. It's a STUNNER!

BUD'S BOTTLE - Ready for an impromptu signed coin in bottle? How about with a borrowed coin and borrowed bottle! An impromptu masterpiece. This is CLASS!

STATIC - A selected card sits atop the deck. You rub your forearm (to get some 'static'), and then hover your fingers over the deck. Utterly impossibly that chosen card POPS straight off the deck and adheres to your fingers. It then slowly sinks back onto the other cards. You can even get your spectator to hold THEIR fingers over the deck and watch the selection shoot up as if magnetized. Can be performed impromptu, as Alan teaches you how to make the brilliant gimmick on the fly. Works with ANY deck. Truly shocking visual magic with cards!

SHARPIE BEND - A Sharpie held at the fingertips visibly softens in the center and slowly bends into a right angle. You uncap the strange looking pen and hand it out to be examined (cos it can be!). Learn how to make this fun, visual gimmick in seconds at home!

ACES OUT - A self working, mental miracle. You remove the four Aces from the deck and have your spectators decide on one. When they check the packet of aces, the one they named is GONE! Where? The deck is spread and it's the only face up card in the center of the spread. Oh, and when the spread is reversed ALL THE CARDS ARE BLANK!

BE SAFE - You show the audience your lighter with the regulation 'NO UNDER 18's' sticker glued on. Using your thumbnail under the sticker you demonstrate how a quick snap to the
