Hi, this is Erik Zander

I just wanted to let you know that I've created a brand new strikingly visual and very practical finale for an ambitious card routine perfect for street magic conditions.

Here are the conditions:

The card is placed FACE-UP inside of a face down deck of cards.

The pack is wrapped around with a rubber band.

And the card still visually finds its way to the top of the deck underneath the rubber band with no cover.

And yes, the card is signed and everything is examinable!

Give me some feedback.

Here's a video demo, It's the video near the bottom of the page:

Thanks for your time,

Erik

You might want to check some early Sankey work, especially in a book "When Worlds Collide". He has a similar idea in there.

If I am not mistaking the rubberband principle used is a very old idea.
Sorry if I am off.

I just changed the videos on my site to a more professional service so that you can see it better.

I'm not sure what to think about it as your video is not a single continuous shot. With so many cut-aways it's hard to gauge how clean it looks in real life. If what you see is actually what you get though, then it does look pretty cool.

Looks cool. But I have to agree that there seems to be several cut aways that don't give a totally clear shot of what the spectator will see.

No problem, I'll put one that has a one continuous shot.

I'll tell you when it's ready.

Erik,
I saw it. It looks good. Don't be put off by the many people who are bound to say "Oh, yeah, that's what xx also does." or "Isn't it the xx method that was published in 1963 and was first discovered in 1492..."

Ignore them. The final point of a magic trick is whether you can connect with your audience and astonish them.

Daryls original ending with the rope is a killer.
