This does certainly sound like a great deal. I just have one simple question, is this a visual effect for the audience? (And I hope you understand what I mean by that).

kindly,

Hi M.I.,

It's hard for me to answer that one, I'll PM you.

This is a great little routine that Anthony has put together. To answer my own question above yes, there is quite a strong visual element that the spectator experiences. Handling and method is simple and easy enough so that performance can be focused upon! for 2.50 GBP this is a good deal in my opinion, for a standalone effect or a strong routine to add to a bizarre show.

My wife is a "witch"... she can cast the spells... it was humor... maybe too dry, maybe too vague... It was a humorous pat on your back for a wonderfully clever effect.

Hahahaha Thanks Al!

Doh! It's so obvious to me now what you meant Smile

Sorry my friend, it's been a strange couple of days with very little sleep!

Glad you enjoyed the routine,

Thanks Anthony,

I got the e-book right before I left my home this morning and read it this afternoon. It's very nice when one shares their work or pet routines with the rest of us. The best part is that is stimulates my
Imagination for presentations that suit my own performing style and presentation. As an Actor, playing the role of a Magician that is playing the role of a Mentalist. I enjoy scripting that I can elaborate on myself within a believable framework and premise. I can see a number of applications for this method I had not considered before.

I love this. I had guessed a different method, and was pleasantly surprised. I can make this and perform this...which says a lot...believe me. This is well-worth the asking price, and I hope we see more magic from Mr. Black.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

I was quite fortunate enough to have just read Anthony's newest effect, The Sight of Madness.

I was already impressed when I read his first offering, Resurrection Dreams. I can now say with no uncertainty
that Anthony is definitely NOT a one trick pony.

The Sight of Madness is (to me) what bizarre magic is all about. Effects like this will not leave your audience asking
"How did he do it?" they will more than likely be asking "Did that really just happen?" This effect is all at once simple,
elegant and beautiful.

More so than anything I've read recently, Anthony's work has really opened my eyes as to what can be achieved
in the realm of bizarre magic. There is nothing complicated in it's execution, leaving you completely free to
concentrate on your presentation.

Anthony understands as a creator that in order for an effect to truly work, it must be able to be altered to fit
the performing style of the magician. Should you choose to use Anthony's script, fantastic! But the effect is
designed in a such a way that it can be made to fit any mood or performing style. Want it to be unsettling? Can't
get much better than effect as is! What it to be funny? Totally doable! What about a romantic version for a Valentines show?
(HHhhmmmm....bizarre Valentine magic.....that might be a new niche!) it can be done.

They say you can tell a good idea when you say to yourself "Why didn't I think of that?!?!?"

Well........

The Sight of Madness..........WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?????

The Sight of Madness is brilliantly simple. It is very easily adaptable to my own style. As soon as purchased it, I devoured it. It'll get your mind whirring too. Thanks for sharing this with us. It was an absolute steal.
