Pegasus, are you, perchance, a fellow aviator?! Yes, these 380 ultra long-haul sectors do give you the time to think....

Hope that you like it in practice, do please let me know what you think. Have just trialled it to my daughter and her friend. Very pleased with the results thus far. A nice spooky atmosphere and no hint that they even thought about how it was that I achieved the goal.

Happy new year to you all,

Best

Unfortunately not Martyn. Microsoft flight sim (FSX) is as close as I have got to flying. Lol.

Hi all. Apologies if this has already been covered, but has anyone tried ma*/ing the photo's in any way in order to take the Revisited method to a further level by not having to p**k at the backs? I think that this could make the effect virtually foolproof, but I don't want to ruin the photo's unnecessarily.

Thanks! Duncan.

Yes, I have and it really enhances the experience IMHO. Had a discussion with the Ben at the Merchant of Magic, who own the rights to this....he was a little sceptical so I went ahead and sorted my own photo set and no peaks are needed now. Indeed, if you read my earlier post then the photos can be shuffled as well as no peek being required....

Thanks Smiffy. I would be interested to hear how you m***ed the cards, as I have yet to give this much thought, but I think that this would be a real worker. I would be really greatful if you could PM me your method if that's not too cheeky?

Cheers, Duncan.

Sounds good. Is this the same as White Star but updated to include more props?

Trailer doesn't tell or show much at all.

where will this be available so we can see a better description of what it really is?

Thanks

Forgot to mention....

If this is indeed new or even improved.
You should start a new thread here since it's different.
Just a suggestion.

Congratulations Jim, sounds great but could do with more info. Another pointless trailer IMO.

Does this have the same issues as the original i.e. that the images are badly stretched and look like a computer novice put the thing together?

It's basically the Fallen and unlike whitestar Tony and I have had full control of the artwork the cards are replica cart de visite photos of the period. We have put some secret indicators on each to allow you to do a predicted photo to wallet. Also you can determine the fate of the passenger by the photo on the front as well as the info on the back. Sorry about the vague trailer but aside from the mechanics of the (trick) it's all about the story. The way I perform it won't be the way others do and to be honest everyone I have ever seen do any of my effects seem to do them better than me, probably my insecurity. So in brief it's the Fallen on a Titanic theme, 50 good quality photo cards, the items you get are specially made brass key fob, a real old period penny, replica post card, playing card and a Whitestar pencil. Hope this has been some help

Hi folks

White star is in the process of being revamped and the new version adds a whole range of new features, images, and improved handling.

The new version also allows you to present the effect in different 'mood styles' depending on your audience, as well as additional images to present the routine outside of the Titanic theme.

Over the last few years we have been collecting presentation ideas, expansion techniques, and handlings, which I think will be very exciting both for users of the original white star and those that go for the new version.

I'll post more info ASAP as we get ready for release.

I'm really excited about how this effect is about to be expanded. I think you will love it.

We will keep the same name : White Star and it will replace the original version

More news about it will go up over the next couple of weeks on the Merchant of Magic blog


Best wishes

Dominic

Just to set things straight Jim Critchlow's TITANIC is not Whitestar. Tony and myself wanted to amalgamate and improve the two effects "Whitestar" and "The Fallen" however the rights to Whitestar are owned by Dominic Reyes, and Peter Nardi owns The Fallen. Peter was happy to go forward with the project but Dominic felt the two should be kept separate. This is understandable and Tony and I fully respect this and have taken it on board. So TITANIC is The Fallen in another guise. It doesn't use any of the same images as Whitestar, it doesn't openly display Died or Survived and nowhere in the instructions is the plot or method to Whitestar talked about. Both Tony and I look forward to see the improvements Dominic has planned for the effect and wish him great success with it.
