Just a little tip, be careful when loading the bill. Try to keep a finger over the lip at all times (hopefully makes since to those that own it.) I performed it tonight for family after MANY rehearsal runs at my house. Well I went to load the bill and after it was loaded it literally sprang out of the box, through the air, and landed on the table.... Talk about embarrassment

Embarrassment? Maddy, can you teach me to do it that way?

Haha it just didn't have near the climatic ending to the routine.

I understand Cameron's reasons for not putting out a full video, but I found the trailer not that convincing. But I went ahead and purchased it because of the price and that Cameron has so many winners.

Well the routine is much better than the trailer. And the key is what Peter Duffie commented on way up top. Everything looks so clean. The flow of the routine just works - well motivated and choreographed.

Yet another winner.

Thank you, Jim.

Maddy, I'm sure it was mortifying when it happened... but the mental image of that is hilarious. Smile But glad you found a solution so it doesn't happen again. I must say, it's something I've never encountered.

Thank you very much!

I know there are some that are skeptical because I didn't do an unedited demo but thank you to those who have faith in me and the effect. I've gotten nothing but great feedback from it!

MOST times I need a full performance demo. If it has Cameron Francis's name on it, I don't.

Cheque is the real deal!

I really like this routine! Well thought out and well explained. And best of all - it has some written content!! OK, much of it just points you to video explanations, but Hey! Some written help is better than none at all!! (Can you tell I've grown very, very weary of DVD-only instructions?) But enough of that - back to the routine and effects. Cameron has packed a lot into this routine, and yet there isn't really a whole lot of explanation or instruction needed. As long as you have some basic skills under your belt (E.g., bill switch, basic card controls), this is very easy to pick up and perform with a minimum of fuss. For the first time in a long time I didn't even need much in the way of practice, other than a few quick run-throughs to get my timing and patter down pat. The routine is easy for spectators to follow - no onerous counting, dealing out cards, spelling, etc. - just a nice, straight path to the conclusion, which by the way left my small audience completely surprised and well entertained.

Bravo Cameron! And thank you!

Your demo showed as much as it needed to. I would go as far to say that you are one of the rare creators that share full demo's for 99% of your effects. And as you stated "those who have faith in you", if people don't have faith in you by now, well to bad for them- they are going to miss out!!

Just wanted to report back after actually using this at a gig. This got such great reactions I had to post. Those who are familiar with this know there are four(4) surprise revelations/magical moments in this routine. Well, to sum it up I will just tell you what happened at the last magical moment when they found the signed bill inside the card case- some stood there just shaking their heads basically speechless while others shook their heads saying "No Way" and walked away do to their frustration of being fooled! This is such a smooth-flowing routine all the while being so much fun to perform. That's why I love most of Cameron's stuff - constructed for the working performer. Not to mention pretty much all Cameron's stuff is priced right and fair, and in a lot of cases more than fair!! "Cheque This" is no exception- this is definately a gem!

And a gem it is. A lot of great magic packed in this little routine that is accomplished with such little to carry.

I know! That's what I love about it. The other night I went out to meet with some friends. I knew I'd be asked to do a trick or two. Didn't want to load up my pockets so I brought a deck of cards and the tiny little thing needed for this and I was good to go. Great feeling to know that I could bust out an easy to do, interesting four phase routine with so little effort.

That's probably one of the best points: "So Little Effort" for so much magic and "So Little" to carry!! Love It!!!

Cameron, I just watched the full performance. People will love this routine performed for them! It's fun, mysterious and a great ending.

The reactions are just great. When they're signed bill turns into a check in an off beat moment, the specs just can't grasp what they have just seen. it's almost humorous to watch their reactions! And that's only the first of the 4 magical moments in the routine!! The value for this is exceptional as is most of Cameron's stuff!!
