happy holidays,

I will laugh when some discover they did not have a clue (including myself) when discovering what is required for Energy Bill. Say no more Candin.

Sorry? Why would you be pleased with one but not the other? Why is one acceptable, and the other not? The reason people are guessing at the supposed method is because of simple human curiosity... you don't offer 7 pages of hype - sorry, pre-release banter - and expect them NOT to talk about it, any more than you would give a kid a wrapped present, tell him not to open it, then demonstrate surprise when he shakes it and fondles it in an attempt to work out what it is. Good grief!

Look, I usually only offer positive posts, but this one really asked for it. May I suggest you spend more time actually working towards releasing it rather than telling us all how fantastic it is, raising the expectation then complaining when people discuss it.

Drew

Amen !!

Hi Drew,

As you know I respect you, so I wanted to make this clear.

I can understand how my post can be taken the wrong way, allow me to clarify.

I have gotten many emails and pm's from people that wanted to tell me they really like the effect, and were looking forward to learning it in its entirety to add to their repetoire. This was one of the reason I decided to release the effect.

The response that I am shocked by is from people coming on and thinking its their mission to expose this effects workings, released or not this is NOT o.k. by me....and I certainly hope its not ok by you!

If I go on any magic site and watch ANY demo, I can tell you exactly what the method is... if I want to perform the peice, I will buy the dvd,book to learn from the creator all the history,bits and peices that make it a solid peice.

I DO NOT go on a chat board and start telling everyone "I know how this works and pm me to find out"

The dvd was shot a week ago and has been sent to the editors, looks like its still on time to be release around X-Mas.

I have sent a message to the moderators requesting this topic LOCKED.

If you like my work, buy it.



I hope you all enjoy the holidays

Hi All,

Thank you so much for the kind words. Glad you liked the effects. Smile

A few have asked me whether any editing was done. I would like to clarify that:-

The two YouTube videos have not been edited in any way or form. They are in real time. The videos were shot some time back with a very limited capability digital STILL camera using its Video Mode. That is the reason I had to mention at the end of the video that No Editing was done.

Enjoy!

Smile

I'm sure you did not edit them.

That's why I want to publicly say - BRAVO Ustaad! Good thinking!
Then you'll rise right before my eyes, on wings that fill the sky, like a phoenix rising!

Its clear to see that its only the quality of the camera that makes the video look glitchy and edited.

Andrew:I like your work...and your style! I look forward to getting 'your real work' on 'Energy Bill'.Do I personally have any ideas as to method?...sure.However,the only thing important to ME...is... will this effect be a worker for me...If Yes, GREAT!.... IF No,OK I will move on. "You win some,you lose some,and some get rained out". Smile I do have a good feeling about this though.

My main interest is in the 'intricacies and subtleties' that make any effect work in a 'performance environment'.

Let me just say this about 'bloviating' about methods that are used for any given effect:There is IMHO only one 'respectable' way to discuss methodology...that is via PM....or otherwise privately.[e-mail,magic club etc].*Or at the very least in the Café's Banquet Room.

Posting your 'solutions' here on an open forum is IMO just a negative for the Art.

If Ustaad or anyone else was to offer their version..I am also interested...because the individual stylelizations can only be a plus for one who woks in the real world and has to stay fluid in their presentations.For me this is the greatest value of a Forum like the Café.

Creator's of magical effects should be Free to promote[hype]their wares however they wish...the efficacy of any given effect will be known early on[after release].This is known as 'free enterprise'!If it lives up to the hype it will be successful if not it will fail and be remembered for future reference.... [exausted Mountbank carefully steps down off soap box]

Happy trails.

Hi Gents, Here is the demo link -
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pR9InHYU0l8

Thank you for that Drew, I am glad.

Magicmike30 Real time is no longer available, so I am glad you are killing with it!

Elcio, your support means allot ,thank you.

richeka, you sound like a real worker man, I know you will be using this.

Candin, your prediction may be bang on !



Snowing here today in Canada, definitely feels like X-Mas

FYI I gave my dear friend Paul Harris 3 killer peices for his True Asonishment series...and did a (hidden) interview as well. These dvds are the biggest thing close up magic will see for a while I suspect.


Happy Holidays,

Andrew Gerard

This question might be exposure-ish but will the effect work with bill from anywhere? I mean different countries use different materials for their bills

I am pretty sure it will. Ustaad uses his currency.

Any Paper currency will work... no coins, different effect!

Your favorite dealer will have Energy Bill around X Mas
If you don't have a favorite dealer http://www.Hocus-pocus.com is great.

I have seen Andrew's effect performed live in my home.

2 words "Amazing Magic"

I will buy this effect and I will use this effect.

So will you!
