Well after reading this, I had to phone Rus and ask him what was going on, without giving everything away, Rus gave me a little insight into how he performs this and what goes on.
Yep the cap can be signed, yes it happens in the spectators hands, and He is a devious, sneaky, bold as brass genius!

Realax pal, no one said you effect is a rip off. You might want to be careful on how you respond since you will be trying to sell your effect. You are quick to jump the gun. Not a good start.

Let me post the sentence again for you...just for you. "Could you have come up with a name that didn't look like a cheap knock off of Justin Miller's "Captured"

Let's look at the eighth word in that sentence. It says, "name" oh my. How could you miss that?

I'm talking about the name you are calling it. The effect is inspired by Captured, so you call it Captivate. Kind of like a cola company being inspired by Pepsi and calling their drink Pepsical. I am referring to the name, not the product when I mean cheap knock off. If you had Pepsi and Pepsical on the same shelve, one would assume Pepsical was a knock off. Having an original name will save you problems in the long run, but what do I know.


You're the one that needs to relax pal. Why don't you stick around and get to know people before starting in with the sarcastic attitude. Rus is one of the good guys and there's enough ***** here already. We don't need another one.
And if you knew a little more about magic you would realise that there is a rich history of honoring the effect that influenced you, within the name of your trick.

Glimmer is a visual stunner and I'm triple sure that Captivate by Rus Andrews will be a Mike Tyson Uppercut knockout of an effect.

Actually, since I apologized, I believe YOU are the one who needs to relax. Get over it man. It wasn't about you in the first place, and all you are doing is wasting time bringing up yesterdays garbage. Do you have anything constructive to add to the thread,or are you one of those members who just troll around?

If I knew a little bit more about magic? Get over yourself moron. You're still wet between the ears. I can tell I know ,ore about magic that you do about potty training. If you want a fight, I'm in, but since you praise Rus so much have the respect for him to not come on here and start a flaming war. How disrespectful!!

Hey

No need to bicker guys, all good.

Keep this a happy thread.

Bond19, this is a bold approach never fear, it's a cap in bottle with a Rus Andrews touch.

All the best

I've had the pleasure of recieving just about everything Rus has released so far and I very rarely get impressed and his thinking on design and practicality is well thought out, easy, practical and visual all are great combos for a great effect.

Looking forward to this one Rus,

The project is in the pipeline at the moment, captivate will come with 2 methods, a gimmicked version and an impromptu version.

Thanks for the comments Shane, you sir are another inspiration to my work.

All the best

This looks good! I have seen a quick video of this, performed impromptu and it is slick. I understand that there will be a couple methods taught with this release including a gimmicked version which most likely will be easier to perform. I favor impromptu but using a gimmick is not so bad and sometimes looks cleaner. Looking forward to this release, hopefully soon.
