Hey People!

There has been a HUGE response to the 1337 notes. I want to thank those who received them for all of their kind words.

I am just letting you guys know that I will be releasing them for purchase this Friday, April 20, 2007. They will be available as a PDF, or a limited edition hard copy.

Check out http://www.seanfields.net this Friday to get yours!

Peace

You should call them "l337 notes" (with an L). or "L337" notes. That would be especially delicious.

hehe, can you give us some info on what is going to be on the pdf?

The 1337 (pronounced 'LEET') Notes contain:

1337

20 B-Low

EFFECT: The agent of illusion request that a witness present remove a $20 bill from their wallet. Handing them a pen, he also instructs that they sign it for identification. The witness now folds their bill into quarters, and hands it to the agent, so he can carry on with his mission.

The bill is laid on top of a glass table, and the agent slowly waves his hands over the bill, which is then seen to MELT down through the glass table top, so it is stuck to the underside of the glass! The witness or the agent can then remove the bill from the underside, and unfold it, to verify the witnesses signature. The witness is put into protective custody, and the agent vanishes in a puff of smoke like a ninja.

AQUATIC

EFFECT: The agent again finds himself at a house party, and is asked to redefine the onlookers reality. With little hesitation, he asks for a bottle of water, and a penny.

The agent removes the cap from the water bottle, takes a sip, and recaps it tight. He then removes the label, to ensure a crystal clear view of the proceedings.
Taking the penny, the agent slowly, and visibly passes the coin inside the bottle! The witnesses are instructed to look closely, ensuring that the penny really is inside the bottle, and that the agents hands are empty.

Just as slowly, and just as visually, the agent then removes the coin through the bottom of the bottle!

Offering to do it one last time, the agent lays the penny on the table, and slowly brings the bottle down onto the penny, where the penny is seen to visibly pass into the bottle, which is then immediately handed to a spectator to examine.

ICED UP

EFFECT: The sensory assassin is commissioned to eliminate a groups sense of reality by demonstrating his control over the elements.

After showing off his command over physics by performing Aquatic, the assassin decides to display his command over the elements, and grabs another bottle of water.

The performer takes a sip, and the audience can clearly see the refreshing liquid inside. Commenting that he likes his water icy cold, the magician gently blows across the bottle, where it is seen to freeze solid!

This iced up bottle can be examined by all present.

EXCISED

EFFECT: The magus decides to try his hand at medicine. Asking a young lady present to come forward and witness the demonstration up close, the performer asks to borrow her necklace, which she reluctantly gives up.

Standing right beside her, so she can ensure nothing funny is going on, the magician tilts his head back, and slowly lowers the young lady’s necklace into his mouth, and down his throat!

Gagging slightly, the magician swallows hard, and opens his mouth; the necklace isn’t there, he really did swallow it!

The young lady looks distressed at the loss of her necklace, but the performer assures her that it is safe.

He then slowly lifts up his shirt, exposing his bare stomach. With obviously empty hands, he slowly begins to dig into his stomach! A single bead of blood trickles down his abdomen as he searches around his innards.

Suddenly, he stops, and slowly begins to pull something from he belly. Inch by agonizing inch, the young lady’s necklace is pulled from the performers stomach, glimmering ever so slightly, and dripping with blood.

Once the spectators necklace has been completely excised, the performer reveals that his stomach is somewhat bloodstained, but absolutely unharmed!

After appropriate cleansing procedures, the young lady is given back her necklace, but she is reluctant to put it back on. Can you blame her?

FU2

EFFECT: This could be the LAST WORD in T&R card effects, check this out:
A deck is BORROWED, and a card is selected and signed. The deck is placed aside, and the card is slowly, and openly folded and torn into four pieces. The hands are unmistakably empty during this entire process. The pieces are shown to be separate and individual. Two of the pieces are placed in the lips, and attention is drawn to the two remaining pieces. The two pieces are touched together, and visibly melt back together! One of the pieces is taken from the lips, it too is visibly restored, as is the final piece! The card is immediately handed back to the spectator to keep!
NO bluffs, the card is examinable! NO discrepancies! No prep work of any sort, do this with a BORROWED deck!
This is awesome! The first truly IMPROMPTU piece by piece T&R Card effect ever! This very well could be the LAST WORD in T&R Card effects!

Taste-icular - With Josh Nekrep

EFFECT: Attempting to gain entry into a small group of buxom foes, the agent is shot down by what seems to be the leader, or ‘mother hen’ of the group. The agent knows what he must do. His confidence steadfast, he knows he must perform a Jedi mind trick of epic proportions; he is determined to score.

Noticing one of the ladies just bought a bottle of water, he springs into action.

He first has her open her water and take a sip. Nothing exciting here, it is water. Again, he instructs her to take a sip, but this time, not to swallow, rather just swish it around in her mouth.

Now the mind tricks begin. The waters flavor slowly begins to transform, becoming minty! The agent now instructs our lovely participant to spit into a glass, where she, and the entire group, can see that the water is now MOUTHWASH! Left with a stunned look, not to mention minty fresh breath, the victim no longer rejects the agents advances, and starts making a few advances of her own!

Now confident he has the gang of foes in control, he goes for the BIG score.

In an effort to prove his prowess to the rest of the ladies, the agent takes the bottle of water, and VISIBLY changes the remaining water to mouthwash as well!

What little resistance remains dissipates quickly, and the agent promptly corrals the gaggle of ladies back at his place.

His performance dominating, a Purple Head medal will no doubt be awarded to the agent.


1337P33K

EFFECT: None. This is not an effect, rather it is a utility. This could be one of the BEST billet moves in existence. This is 1337P33K.


ULTIMATE EPIC

EFFECT: Three spectators are invited to participate in this latest demonstration of the agents otherworldly abilities.

The spectators are each instructed to think of something, and write it on the back of a business card. The first is to think of a person, the second a place, and the third spectator and activity. This all occurs with the agents back turned.

Once finished, the agent turns around, and instructs the spectators to hold their cards in their fists.

The agent now brings out three envelopes, explaining that each contains one of his business cards, which he will write his thoughts on, and seal inside the envelopes.

Staring at the first spectator, the agent hastily writes a name down on the card, and seals it in the envelope. Committed to his thought, he asks the first spectator who he thought of. Let’s assume he says ‘Ashton Kutcher’. The agent writes ‘#1 – Ashton Kutcher’ on the back of the envelope, and moves on.

The agent repeats the same sequence for the other participants, who say ‘Acting’ and ‘Inside a paper bag’ respectfully.

The agent now hands each spectator their respective envelope, and asks them to open them to check his predictions. Each one is bang on! The audience begins to applaud wildly, whereupon the agent instructs them to calm down.

Drawing attention to a large envelope that has been stuck high on the wall since before the trick began, the agent requests that one of the spectators retrieve the envelope, and bring it back on stage.

With the envelope on stage, the agent explains that he had written something down earlier, for no particular reason. He explains that although it didn’t make sense at the time, it is completely clear now.

The spectators open the envelope, and unfold the paper inside, on which it is clearly written:

‘I DON’T THINK ASHTON KUTCHER COULD ACT HIS WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG!’

The entire audience now erupts in uncontrollable cheers and applause, and the agent slowly walks away, blending in with the populous, ever ready to assassinate unsuspecting audiences perceptions of reality. Yea, he’s a bad ass.


Although distribution of these notes has been limited up until this point, the response has been tremendous. I can assure all of you that these are some of my best/favorite creations ever. Period. End of story. Fin.

The best part about these notes is virtually every effect is IMPROMPTU. The only exception is Taste-icular, which requires 10 seconds of reset.

Don't worry, it won't be MUCH money! Smile

Seriously though, the notes will be VERY reasonably priced, given the material contained.

Here is something funny, speaking of filming this material...

I sent these notes to a friend some time ago. He hit me up on MSN, and performed Aquatic for me. He fooled me. WITH MY OWN EFFECT! Go Tim GO!

You know that feeling you get when you read an effect, think about it logically for two seconds, laugh loudly (even though you're alone in the room in front of your computer) and scream "NO F*%#i@& way!"

I just had one of those...

Very well. Taste-icular in particular (hehehe) has fried some very knowledgable magicians when I performed it for them. Excised won't fool a magician, but it is some spooky stuff to lay people. Aquatic is so visual, it looks like a camera trick, but live. FU2 is probably the most difficult routine, but after blasting through a pack of cards or two, it becomes second nature. 1337P33K is a fabulous billet move, and the legend that is Michael Webber had never seen anything like it. Ultimate Epic is great; imagine doing a 'Graffiti Wall' type illusion, with only a few business cards. Iced Up will be the toughest for people to comprehend; you won't believe it works until you get it to work for you. 20 B-Low is so visual, and so easy, you won't believe how good it looks and plays.

Of course, I am biased, but the other proud owners of the 1337 notes Bob Smith, Keith Barry, and Nathan Kranzo are not so biased, and they have each spoken highly of the notes.

Only thing I hate about good glass through table effects are that I never see any glass tables lying around which makes me sad.

Anyways 07' is going to be a great year for great effects Smile
