I just had the privilege and pleasure meeting Huron Low in Hollywood a few days ago to produce and shoot his sensational DVD 'Fire In The Hole' which experience I like to share here with you. Huron is not just an incredible smooth and graceful flourisher (he can do a complete Sybling in 'one' second...No kidding. I counted: 21' DONE!) but also an extraordinary gifted and humble card magician and human being. His ACR (Ambitious Card Routine) is simply fabulous...He fooled me over and over again and I mean with really only one card and no DL's LOL ! His pass is the smoothest and most deceptive I have seen in years and I have seen quite few. He does it with a face up deck and you don't see a thing...just the top card changing! Anyhow, back to Topic: Huron came up with 5 brilliant Torn and Restored card effects which are going to be on his new DVD. The highlight is his flash restoration using a pyro paper 'granade' called 'Fire In The Hole'. He offers the original plus 2 varations of this effect which are instant killers and magician foolers. Here the scenario of version 3 which is my favourite: The magician produces a little booklet reading 'Time Bombs' which he hands to a spectator. A card get's 'freely' selected (yes, no force) and signed on the back top and bottom by 'two' spectators. The magicians writes the date and time on the face, produces an exacto knife and clearly cuts out one of the signatures leaving a large hole in the card. The spectator varifies that it's his (signature) and the magician puts (the cut out piece) it in his pocket. He opens the small 'Time Bombs' booklet, takes out a 'pyro granade' and places it over the cut out hole with the missing signature, produces a lighter and ignites the pyro which literally fuses and restores the card with the missing signature in a flash. The card is handed out immediately for examination....Instant Death !
I taped Huron doing it on Hollywood Blvd. and the guy who's signature got restored was so floored that he followed us like a Zombie (and yes he was sane and not a Hollywood weirdo...at least before the effect) He just couldn't conceive what just happened (to him)...This is really a refreshing an innovative take on the T&R principle and high caliber magic; something David Copperfield or Cyril would choose to perform. Actually, I was looking for a great T&R effect for my up-coming show and couldn't find the right one until now...'Fire In The Hole'

Hey Vince! What an incredible week it was awesome to have had you there bro.!
When McDonalds sees the footage we did there they are gonna hire you and Huron for a commercial...hahaha. I posted the above just to express my sincere joy and pleasure I had working with Huron and you. It is not my intention to create a hype for his DVD, like it is known in the magic community because but my sincere expression of joy and fun we had doing pure magic. I don't know if I should say this but I don't care...Did you know that Paul Harris wanted to buy one of Hurons T&R (It's called the Hot Spot) effects to put in his book?! I do not have to say more...Huron is one of the fairest and ethical magicians I met in my career. Besides his awesome flourishes he remains down to earth and remains human after all. That is what creates the real magic...not 'just' the sleight of hand....
simply beautiful.

Huron is a genious, and FITH is still as exciting as it was 3 years ago.
That's pretty rare on the magic-scene, so it's obviously something refreshing.

This DVD is a must.

Oh wow thank you guys so much for the kind words!!! Wow... I did not expect this.
Silvio, thank you so much for the help with the production and your professionalism and patience with everything... especially that train. Haha, it was a pleasure to finally meet you and man did we have lots of fun... and I still stand by the fact that your crease idea is pure genius. Actually Paul Harris was just interested in including Hotspot inside his 10 dvd set but it didn't go further than that.
Vinnie C it's great to finally meet you as well... I had an awesome time jamming with you and once the footage of us is edited I'll send it to you!

I see the DVD out in about a month and a half now that filming is done. This is very exciting!
Thanks guys.

I just watched this DVD. Incredible - In many ways I think this is better than Guy Hollingworth's 'The Reformation'. It is also a lot easier to do as well... Congratulations to Hurow Low - he is a genius!

Hey thanks for the awesome reviews!!
Yes I just read David Regal's review of my T&R Project in Genii and it seriously made my day.
Haha I am a bit late eh.
How I wish this was in the Tricks and Effects section and not in the card flourish section!!
