Astrocity, we did not leave the "clean up" portion out of the demo, there are a lot of clean ups explained in the dvd and we already have shown some in the demo. There is no BS in my words my friend.
Chessman said it clearly enough. You may see Titanas's other releases and understand that whatever he has come out with is no rip-off.
This is my first personal release. Do you think I would be that stupid to scream out how much I trust Slide knowing that this might mark me for the rest of my creative life? The Demo is complete enough for everyone to understand what is it about as Ray put it. Thanks Jamie Ferguson, I couldn't have put it better in words.
Anyway, I insist on waiting for someone who gets it and plays with it for a while to give his opinion.
Take care all!

It looks like the clean up in the demo flew right by Astrocity. That means he was fooled badly! Smile

I gotta say, the demo looked very fair to me. I mean, I see the clean-up completely, have a good idea of what else might need to be done and, honestly, can imagine the gimmick construction. Of course, I don't have the effect so I can't say for sure, but there were no red flags in what was presented here.

Do people actually read what others say, I mean REALLY read what others say before commenting on their posts?

No where did I ever say that you were not showing "the swap" at the end on a few of the performance snippets in your demo. Please feel free to go back and re-read both of my posts and find where I did so and point it out to me. I referred to another TNR currently being offered by another creator and how he chose to leave the entire ending of the effect, the clean up, out of the demo. I referred to that in reference to the importance of showing a complete effect when presenting it for sale to the magic community. The getting into a gimmick, the actual effect, the clean up, the way it looks to the audience, does the routine and it's physical movements make sense to a spectator...that's what I mean by a complete demo.

De'Mon,
I clearly saw both you and Titanas do your dirty work in several spots on the demo, I'm not quite sure why you think I did not. I referenced your comment to RNK

P.S: Trust me when I say I would LOVE to shoot a short video with the whole process so you can see how clean and astonishing it is...but then again why should I do that? Just to prove something to you...No sir...No can do...
Peace out!
That just struck me as unnecessary and a bit condescending. Again, if that is the case, then why not do so? Many people who have commented on this thread feel the demo shows enough and perhaps for the concensus that may be true. For me, I do a lot of close-up strolling gigs and with an effect like this, it would be good to see the start of the effect, the effect and the end of the effect being performed to spectators. I understand that with some effects that can be an issue because any seasoned magician could simply reverse engineer the effect and perform it without paying for the rights to. With this effect, that would not be the case with a straight up performance of the effect. Most creators and/or companies releasing effects choose not to do that anymore, and sometimes there are ulterior motives in play to hide certain aspects or realities of an effect that may effect sales. Let me be crystal clear here: I AM NOT SAYING THAT IS THE CASE HERE NOR DO I BELIEVE IT TO BE THE CASE HERE. What I'm saying is that we have just come to accept it as standard operating procedure. If creators who could, chose to show a straight up performance in the demo, then maybe it would be harder for the "less savory" ones to hide their effects weaknesses and issues in their demo videos. The fact that we have all developed the mindset that So & So can be trusted so don't worry should be a red flag that there is a problem overall with the way we are being marketed to.

De'Mon & Titanas,
I wish you much success with this effect, it looks promising. I like the mismade card and the use of a business card. I'm a strong advocate of using my business card in effects and leaving them with a souvenir of the "magical moment" that they will keep that just happens to have all my contact info on it. I do that with 1/2 my close-up strolling set. I will be interested to see the reviews come in from some workers here on the Café.

OK. I was finally able to view a full performance video from beginning to end, hiding nothing. I must say, after viewing this video I will purchase this. I was told that the video I saw was only the basic performance and that there are other performance's using Slide that are taught. With that being said, the "move" needed at the end during the basic performance looked very natural to me. I can definately see how "The Slide" will baffle laymen. I am looking forward to this.

Best,

De'Mon and Titanas kindly gave us an interview to discuss the filming for SLIDE, the back story to creating the effect and what it was like working with Paul Harris.

You can read it on the Blog: http://blog.magicshop.co.uk/2012/07/inte......and.html

B.T.W @RNK. I bet Titanas that even when you watched the full performance you would not like SLIDE. I lost the bet and now I have to eat a playing card! Nice! Smile

Go on Dominic, take one for the team and film it for the Café. You could be the new 'Mullica'.

Here you go RNK

I'll warn you - It's not big, it's not clever, and it definitely is not pretty to watch!

A man of his word. Hard to find that characteristic in today's world. Very impressive, did the pepper, or was it salt, help the taste any? I hope so! Lol. After that, I can't wait for the next time!!!!

Very impressive,

RNK
