I sent Alan Rorrison a message regarding buying his version (as his shopping cart seems to be down), but for some reason he didn't reply.

The Imperfect Reality team usually responds rather quickly to emails about their effects and handle them quickly. I'm sure one of the guys will get in touch with you soon.

I habs just downloaded.
Everything went fast and without problems.
Small tip, Windows and the Mediaplayer on the newest state hold.
Looks after updates.
I have Windows XP home and the Mediaplayer 11.
And it runs.
After download maybe firewall switch off.
I had, in any case, no problems.
Download time 1 hour.

The quality of the video goes from property to satisfactory.
The tone is OK.

Everything is exactly explained and it became really strives itself given.
Very nice routine!
And very easily.

Am exceedingly contented, and recommends it.

Well, now that I have downloaded and watched the video, I can write a little review.

the method itself was not new to me since I own chastain criswell's deface for quite a while. I still wanted to have drawn apart because of all the different variations explained in it. and I was not disappointed. there are really many methods explained to achieve the effect. most practical, some definitely not.

the video quality reaches from poor to average, but everything that needs to be seen can be seen. Smile definitely a home brewed production. the sound is ok too.

what I have to praise is the length of the video (due to all the variations explained) and the teaching. nothing is left covered (well, maybe a simple explanation of a switch might have added a bit to it) and anybody can immediately start practicing. the method itself is easy to handle, so it all depends on how you perform it.

good download, I don't regret it (only the windows media license stuff).

but I don't know why nobody offers explanations how to do this on checkered or lined paper. it's so easy and obvious.

gets a 8/10 from me since the quality could be better (would be a 9/10 then) and 10/10 would be perfect, real magic, which isn't possible. Smile

Yachanin- thanks. I'll relax now and let them to it in their own time.

They really should get this download issue to a point where it causes a little less aggravation.

I purchased the new version, but he refunded my money. Have no clue why.

I had seen the demo video for Drawn Apart quite some time ago, and was quite impressed by the illusion.

I had no idea that Chase had passed away, this is both shocking and tragic. To Chase's family and friends, my heart goes out to you; I know what it is like.

I recently viewed Alan's demo video as well, and it too looks fantastic.

I do not own either product, but I just wanted to voice my impressions on this (these) effect(s).

Very visual, very striking.

As soon as I get my hands on either of these products, I will write a formal review. Until then.

After the manipulation is this immediately examinable? and does this have to be done on a blank piece of paper or can it be done on lined paper or a newspaper?

I just recieved, and watched, Don't Lose Your Head by Alan Rorrison.

.....

I am speechless. Alan sent me two separate videos, for two separate methods. Both methods are simply brilliant. They are simple, direct, and extremely visual. Not only are the methods effective, they are also very clever. I couldn't help but be astounded at the level of observation that is displayed in how clever, practical, and unorthodox the methods were.

As far as the actual video(s) go...

Alan is a small time, independant creator, and as such, is incapable of producing a video of quality on par with 'the big guys'. If you have seen any of Alan's other efforts, you know what to expect here. While the quality of video isn't quite there, the teaching is.

Although a painfully simple trick, Alan goes through great effort to get the finer points across, which is appreciated. The one issue I had was with Alan's accent. While I found it easy to understand what he was saying, due to the audio quality, and Alan's accent, some may find him difficult to understand.

There isn't a lot of material covered here; Alan explains the effect, and that's it. No bonus effects, or alternate effects. He speaks briefly on some ideas, but none are displayed or taught. Truth be told, anyone with 1/2 an imagination will see countless oppurtunities to use these concepts in different ways. It really is that versatile.

In closing, I must say that I do not know what is going on between the two parties involved, and have no affiliation with either. I hope that this situation remains civil, because I would hate to see such a beautiful piece of magic lost to obscurity.

Highly Reccommended.

it can be done on a newspaper (??!?) chckered or lined paper, but drawn apart doesn't cover that. but it's not hard to think that step further after you have watched the video.
as far as I remember, every version of drawn apart can be immediately examined, yes. I only use one, though.

Hi Cameron,

Alan's website says it will be released March 1st. It appears it is available to pre-order right now.

The new version looks very good (I liked the old version too) and in some situations maybe more deceptive too. I really like Alan's material and hope he releases more of his magic soon.

Iain.

Got it. Thanks, Iain. I like Alan's material, too. It's very practical. I still think his Impromptu Coin In Bottle is very underrated. Of course, now that Cap Trap, most other cap or coin in bottle effects will be forgotten:).
