Alexandre just sent me a preview of his Ex-Nihilo.

Give me time to try the "move"... and I'll post my review here!

Ok, here is my review for EX-NIHILO:

This intrigued me since I read the ad for the effect. To be honest I had two ways to get the same kind of effect but they were not as clean as I wanted them to be.

So, while not hoping in the "holy grail" (experienced Mentalists know that it's an impossible thing to find) I was hoping is some different and BETTER Modus Operandi.

Alexandre kindly sent to me a preview of this one and immediately I was fascinated by HIS method.

My love with this method is twofold. This method is very clever and invisible AND I also used this principle for a total different effect and outcome - not with playing cards.

But I never thought of using this slick and subtle principle as Alexandre did.

Cannot say too much!

BEST OF ALL, This idea can be applied to tons of routines and Alexandre just gives you ONE effect that he has found particularly convincing during his past performances!

I have "Ex Nihilo" available on my website now.

I'm only going to release 25 copies of this eBook (basically for a few here in the Café) because "Ex Nihilo" will be sold as a packaged effect within the coming months at WizardsAppretice.com. This is an effort to support the Wizard’s Apprentice brick and mortar shop in Hollywood Florida. As you know, brick and mortar shops are becoming few and far between these days ... it's a shame, I grew up with them.

Thanks Paolo for your insight and review.

Also, keep these "points" in mind ... I borrowed them from Docc Hilford's booklets, but they apply here 100%:

* Nothing is switched
* No forcing-every choice is completely free!
* Easy to do - but reserved for real professionals.
* No code is used
* The spectator is never "in on it"
* Can be performed impromptu
* Can be performed up-close
* Can be performed on stage
* Has blown away audiences across the United States
* Information that is not written is revealed
* Absolutely no pre-show work
* No Carbons or pressing devices
* No pumping, the guests are never asked anything
* No assistants needed; it's a one-man operation
* No sleight of hand required
* No memorization required
* Instantly repeat the effect with a different outcome
* Contains detailed 7-page manuscript
* No peeks, glimpses or quick looks.
* Every move is natural.
* Can be learned in a few minutes.
* Can be used with a spirit medium act.
* Uses a borrowed deck
* A truly shocking routine!
* Audience participation
* The deck is shown face-up to the spectators.
* The spectators freely choose cards.
* Resets in an instant.
* No rough cards.
* Not a Svengali deck.
* Perfect for walk-around mentalism.
* No threads or remotes controls.
* Can be performed surrounded.
* The method can be repeated for the same audience!
* Nothing "corny", the REAL stuff!


As always, thanks for the support.

I'll definately be using this...now that I've finished kicking myself a few times. Osterlind, in his Making Magic Real ebook, makes a good point regarding the benefits of performing magic wherein the method is so close to being real magic that, with just a slight stretch of the imagination, even the performer can "believe" in it. This is such an effect and, in my opinion, this is the beauty of it!

Well - I just sent the dough via Paypal... Paolo is persuasive (goshdang I forgot - he is a mentalist (oh well - the price is right (let us see if your blurb -> reality is not like Docc Smile (although I must say Docc's blurb are usually 90% accurate))....! I'm hoping the manuscript details the spirit / spooky uses as well!

Spektor, I'm flattered by the comment about me being persuasive, because he's coming from a deep thinker like you are Smile

Goin' back on topic, I think you will like the subtle idea and "prop"....

It's something working with Tarots, business cards, postcards, EVEN WITH some casino chips...

Well, Alexandre did not wrote that in his instructions but, since my mind has already created two different routines with it - "MAGNETO-GRAPHOMETRY" and "A REMOTE DESIRE" - I think I will share them with some of you who bought Ex-Nihilo from Alexandre on faith... Smile Smile

After I will come back from France having performed those myself, first!
Then you'll rise right before my eyes, on wings that fill the sky, like a phoenix rising!

Heheh.. Paolo is correct - this is great! Especially because it is simple yet devestating - and it has tons of applications for mentalists - don't be sad when you find the secret - it is so great that you probably have the "gimmick" already if you are a bizarrist worth his or her salt... and its great for... argh... I will share too... hey Alexandre - put up a forum! Or maybe colelct some of our ideas for your future "real" release of this thing! Bravo!

I'm always right... didn't you know that?

And stop "mind-stealing" my ideas or I wil have to wear my alluminum foil cap 24h/7days Smile

If Alexandre agrees on something I proposed to him, you guys are all in for a treat... or is a threat ? Smile

This forum obviously wants I go broke. First Paolo Cavalli and Mota suggested me The Act Of Imagination which I got and is a great book full of excellent tips;and as if that were not enough I preordered Lost In Thought by Greg Arce. Now you all seem so crazy about this Ex Nihilo thing that I feel compelled to get it.

Reading the routine is nothing compared to seeing it in action.

Let me know how it turns out for those of you who got it.

Nicholas, thanks for that.

OK, you convinced me.

Garcia, no luck with it? You really don't need any luck, it's almost self working. I'd be happy to help you if you pm me.
