Camera Tricks – Casshan Wallace

Casshan Wallace immediately found worldwide attention with his rubber band effect Melting Point. With acclaim and buzz surrounding his YouTube and Social Media followers, the most common statement about Casshan's magic is: "That has to be a camera trick".

Well, we're excited to say that they are not! They're very real and you can do can start performing them in minutes.

From borrowed everyday objects, like cell phones, rings, money, coins to card effects, Casshan has created a workers trove of magic in this packed DVD. So, be prepared for your spectators to accuse you of using CGI, because the visuals are striking & downright unreal looking.

Trick list

- C/M: A card is signed and folded and visually changes into a dollar. The inside of a wallet reveals that the signed card switched places with the dollar.
- Spectictacular: A "borrowed" ring visually penetrates a Tic-Tac box.
- Change For Good: Four quarters are held in the magician's hand and visually change into a dollar. See it to believe it.
- Fresher Transformation: A deck of cards visually changes into a real pack of gum. No better way to freshen up your deck.
- Boxin' It Up: A deck of cards is placed into the box by melting through the bottom of it. Great opener.
- True Link: Two paper clips impossibly link by simply pressing their ends together.
- (Bonus) Nest of Tech: A signed coin or borrowed ring inexplicably changes into a phone battery. The magician's phone is taken apart to reveal the signed coin or borrowed ring switched places with the battery.

Get ready, because you'll be doing magic that looks like CGI within hours of buying this DVD

I have recently become a fan of Sans Mind. A lot of people don’t really care for them because you have to build your own props. But the magic is always visual and it does look like camera tricks. If you are a fan you will absolutely love this DVD. It includes six effects that you have to build. That certain “something extra” is included in the package but you have to provide everything else. The good news is that everything else is extremely easy to find. And the best news is that unlike Sans Mind where you pay a similar price for one trick, Casshan gives you six powerful effects to build that really do look like special effects. One bonus effect is included that requires no arts and crafts.

Now for the effects.
C/M - This will probably take longer to build than any of the others but it is a stunner. The card does visually change into a dollar. And the gimmick can be removed so you can pass the dollar around.

Spectictacular - If you like coin or ring in bottle here is a version you can carry in your pocket. This one is easy to build.

Change for Good - Have to watch your angles on this one but it still looks very good.

Fresher Transformation - Now this is cool. Would be great for walk around and you can give your spectator a piece of gum. Casshan gives Jeff Prace kudos for his work with gum.

Boxin’ It Up - Borrows from a host of others such as John Cornelius but looks great and is a real fooler.

True Link - This is basically Jerry Andrus’ Linking Safety Pins done with paper clips. The gimmick looks easy to build and would be a hit in an office, bar or just about anywhere you might want to pull it out.

Bonus - Nest of Tech - Everyone today carries a cell phone and while you have to use your own, it is ungaffed and the spectator can actually open the phone and remove his signed card himself. I can see a lot of magicians picking this up for restaurant or convention work.

This is a long DVD. And you get SIX tricks to build instead of one like you get form Sans Mind. And the good thing is NO SCREAMING ANNOYING SANS MIND GUYS! Casshan is soft spoken and he really takes the time to teach the effects so you have no questions afterwards.

Positives: Not a one trick DVD. You really get value for your money. Incredibly visual magic, The tricks will blow away your audience. Very well taught. Murphy's did an outstanding job on this DVD,

Negatives: The only one I can think of is the fact that you have to build the effects yourself. For me that is not a negative because if something goes wrong or the gimmick breaks, I know exactly how to recreate another one.

Conclusion: I think this is one of the best values for your buck in the DVD market right now. Great magic, insanely clever gimmicks and it is extremely well taught. Buy this and you will not be disappointed.
