Greetings Everyone,
Good recomendations for single commercial effect. I love magic that is visual. I love them though because like someone else said here, you experience the magic, although you know the method, your eyes see it and are fooled. Many can use simple methods and simple props. I love the vanish and reapearance of a small silk using a thumb tip. David Ginn has a good routine on this in Children Laugh Louder.
There is One thing he discusses also in that book, and I agree with. He had used the effect, not sure of the name, in which a silk appears in a clear box. He put it into the show, but at first found it didn't have big impact. He found he had to have a strong routine and a buildup to the appearance. He had to get everyone focussed on where it was going to happen, and help people anticipate it. Then it got much better response. I think that's true, even with the strongest visual effect. What about you?

I recently find that a lot of stunning magic could rise from crystal ball...
The purest form of floating ball effect, with no gimmick and no silk!
I'm currently working it out through "personal" moves and video's I can put my hands on...

Did you try it?

Stigmata, I watched it once and was floored. When I was ready, I performed it, and WOW, the second performance made a girl cry. I highly recommend it for the Initial Prediction version.

I would agree that Stigmata and Sinful are visual. But are we forgetting about color changes? If done correctly, its the most visual move.

Someone please stab me with a color changing knife or something...

For me it would probably a combination jeff McBrides magic onstage volume 1, 10" linking rings set, and metamorph spots.

I gotta say my favorite visual effect is Kevin Parker's Passing Thru. When I saw the demo for it, I was hooked. I immediately bought it and watched the download. When I performed it for my buddy, who is also a magician, he said it looked truly convincing. I am planning to work it into my street routine because of the reactions this effect gets. It's one thing to slam a coin through a bottle, but to slowly see the borrowed coin penetrate a completely solid bottle...it made me believe in magic again. I just want to thank Kevin Parker for his fantastic effects. Passing Thru is one to definitely add to your repertoire if you work street, close-up, or coins. Very visual and very magical. Thanks again, Kevin.

Proffessor's nightmare is a good one. a lot of Paul Harris' stuff is very visual (immaculate connection, unshuffling rebbeca)one thing I love is something from jeff McBride's art of card manipulation vol 1 is the wink change. it always get a good reaction.
my real name is Kevin Harrison

I have to vote for "Cigarette Up The Nose" by me.
No need to say one word. Truely pure visual magic at it's best.

Ghost Bills is a great visual effect when working the close-up crowd.
Peanut Butter and Jelly is usually one of the highlights of my kid shows.....I hear more adults gasp then kids!

The Hot Rod, done well, still gets the money. A good routine is a must, however.

Has WOW been said? Just seeing the card change, it's so visual to the eyes.

If you're looking for truly visual, I still get amazed every time watching Richard Sander's Fiber Optics DVD. Even though I know how it works, it pleases me every time I see it.

One of my personal faves is Card Warp. Someone taught it to me many years ago and I had performed it for a while but put it away. Not long ago I watched it on a Michael Ammar video and wondered why I put the trick away in the first place. Maybe it was because I was going through too many decks of cards...

But I've picked it up again and it's become one of my favorites.
