There is an effect on the market already called Freak. By Will Houstoun. Granted a different effect, but may cause some confusion none the less if you just see the title listed somewhere.

Maybe it is best when any new trick is to be released to have the title researched beforehand just to save confusion on both parties. Smile

Best wishes,

Angelo

Yes, I'm very sorry for the wait. I spent the weekend in a shoot with World Magic Shop, doing a 2 DVD set on Card Under Drink. Tonight, we shot in the VIP of a very big local club. When you guys see the footage, you'll fall out of your chairs.

So the good news is that Freak is 100% written, and completely done. I've seriously got to go crash though, as I've been shooting all day, and I'm exhausted beyond words. I did get a chance to share this with some guys (Justin Miller being one of them) and it looks like the response is going to be bigger then anything I've every put out.

I'm also considering pricing this UNDER 15$. One argument is... "oh boy, everyone will have this", the other is "times are tough".

I'm going to fall asleep at my keyboard. I'll get this up for you ASAP. First... sleep.

Freak Prediction: Review: PDF Format

Okay so, here I am, like most others awaiting the arrival of this seemingly perfect open prediction effect. The anticipation mounts day after day in till finally I see it’s up! So I purchase it for a DIRT CHEAP price! Incredibly low price. Then I see the amount of text and figure i’m in for a bumpy ride. I dived in and began to slowly connect the dots.

Firstly I would like to add that the amount of detail Michael has gone into is extreme. This effect could have been explained far more simply and in a lot less word. But he has gone through every motion to ensure everything is understood.
There are allot of fantastic little subtleties in this effect which make it even more of a stunning effect.

I won’t lie in saying the method was slightly disappointing. It was almost expected. There’s nothing stunningly original about it. You’ll also have to be prepared in getting your hands on a few other things in order to make the effect work. A certain method is used which most magicians have a version of somewhere, but if you’re not familiar with it, then you’ll have to get your hands on it.

This being said, there are no really difficult moment in the trick, allot of the work is done for you and you can work on presentation. There’s no incredibly fiddly gimmicks in this and the only sleights are given to you in the form of a video clip which I thought was a nice touch.

Overall a fantastic, clean looking effect. Nothing overly original or stunning in its method but sometimes the simple ones are the best leaving you more room for presentation. The price is incredible and you get soooo much for your buck. A definite recommendation from me.

Best Wishes,

JamieD

This is a diabolical methodology - Really good!

A couple of principles combined make this a very direct and clean looking effect - I can see it playing REALLY well.

Can't wait to try it out!
