I've gotten some questions about the content. Four card tricks. Three non-card effects (business cards, coins, envelopes, receipts).

None of the card effects are completely impromptu. All use normal cards (no gaffs). One is a "trick" deck made up of totally normal cards.

Hope that helps.

More Headroom contains seven more commercial, high octane mental magic effects using
playing cards, business cards, bills, coins, envelopes, Sharpies and discount cards! There's a little something for everyone in this collection of extremely commercial material.


Here's what you'll find between the pages of More Headroom


RED LIGHT - An ungaffed version of Cameron's bestselling effect Red Hot Prediction!

OUTLESS - Four Sevens are shown. The spectator names one. You prove you predicted it. Clean and simple.

CHANGE IT UP - A freely chosen number matches the amount of change in your pocket.

MAGICIAN'S HOLD 'EM - A very easy to do and effective prediction of two hands of Hold 'Em.

HUMMING WORDS - A fantastic word divination (and a great way to hand out some business cards!).

D.M.C.A.N. -- An easy and totally mystifying card at number prediction. Definitely a worker!

WHO'S LAUGHING NOW? -- A receipt prediction with a kicker ending.

More Headroom is a 25 page, photo illustrated PDF. Also available in booklet form.

Mini Review:I liked the orignal Headroom and although this is a very quick follow up release, it rocks!

Red Light-
A blue backed deck is spread face up showing all different cards in mixed order (no stack or duplicates). Two spectators each freely select cards from
the face up spread. These two cards are left face up on the table. Their totals are used to find another card, say the Eight of Diamonds. When the two
originally selected cards are turned face down, they are both red backed. One
has an Eight drawn on its back. The other has a diamond drawn on its back.
A simple set up and you are set with this It plays big. If you have seen or know Cameron's Red Hot Prediction,you will enjoy this self worker without gaffs.

Outless-
Four Sevens are shown. The spectator names one. You prove you predicted it. Clean and simple.
If you line the B wave type effects but with a new twist then this is for you. it only uses any 4 of a kind and one other item that everyone carries evryday of their lives. A quick hit type of effect.

CHANGE IT UP - A freely chosen number matches the amount of change in your pocket.
This uses business cards and pocket change. I really like this effect as it requires no set up and no pocket space as the coins are already in your pocket anyway.This is one of my favorites of the bunch. It also puts your business cards into play which is always nice although cards ar not even required. It does give the effect a more polished look though. This is fun to perform, very easy and the outcome seems impossible, an exact change type effect but no props or gimmicks needed, only change in your pocket.


MAGICIAN'S HOLD 'EM - A very easy to do and effective prediction of two hands of Hold 'Em.
This is topical with all the televised hole em games going on plus all the house games, it will be nice to do this as everyone is familiar with this game. However this is magicians hold em which is a bit different. This effect has a surprise ending that those familiar with the game will see coming.

HUMMING WORDS - A fantastic word divination and a great way to hand out some business cards.
This is based on a classic principle and works smoothly in this efect.Grab 12 of your business cards and you will soon be prepared for this. This is a simple word divination plus the spectator gets to handle and mix the cards.

D.M.C.A.N. -- An easy and totally mystifying card at number prediction. Definitely a worker.
Oh this is sweet. Your card at any number folks out there are going ot like this gem. It has a different feel, a different approach as a prediction is involved.Plus this effect allows the spectator to be involved with a piece of the method. Very slick way to use a known principle for a surprising outcome in this type of routine. Another one of my favorites.

WHO'S LAUGHING NOW? -- A receipt prediction with a kicker ending.
A nice ending effect to this release. All you need are a few receipts from any store, some pocket change and some pay envelopes. This effect starts off with a laugh, a gag but becomes an amazing prediction when its over, short and sweet.

Well here you have it, a brief write up of my basic thoughts on this latest release. I didn't want to spoil anything or tip any handlings so had to word things like I did, short and to the point. However like most of Cameron's releases, the effects in this booklet are sure to find a place in magicians hearts, things they will use in the right setting.For hobbyist and family and friend entertainers, its a no brainerfor you too. Do yourselves a favor and purchase this today.

This is available from cameronfrancismagic.com
Normally $15, More Headroom is only $12 for a limited time! Or buy the PDF and the hard copy booklet for only $17 (Normally $20)!
Or buy both Headroom and More Headroom for the low price of only $25!

I've also read through More Headroom

Rizzo has done a great job of covering what the book contains.
So I won't unnecessarily duplicate his excellent post.

Each of these effects are completely workable.
Not at all difficult to execute
And they should all bring the type of response we crave from an audience.

Well written. Simply explained and eminently workable

Magicians: Do yourself a favor and expand beyond the cards tricks. Grab this ebook to increase your variety. Cameron's effects are practical, workable, and fooling.


Highlights:
Red Light: a fooler prediction effect

Change it Up: Great impromptu effect with change and business cards or paper

Humming Words: Great effect with business cards

Hey, thanks, guys! I'm glad the material appeals to you. Magicduro, although I have a fondness for all of the effects (obviously) you picked my three favorites, too! Smile

I am still working on the effects and I look forward to showing them to some of the students in my classroom.

I really like so far;

Redlight - a nice prediction effect that is really well thought out. I have enjoyed playing with this so far.

Dry Marker Card at Number (D.M.C.A.N.)- I really like this effect and the creativity behind it. This is the next one that I will be working on this weekend. It is nice, because it takes a common item, a sharpie and your deck of cards - and puts them to work for the prediction. It also creates purpose to hand out your business card.

The entire document is well-written and provide nice effects that are workable and focus on presentation.

I highly recommend you pick it up, nice work Cameron!

Thanks so much! I'm thinking of doing a demo for Red Light as it seems to be popular.
