People - a few weeks back David Davinci hosted an online magic summit, with some great lecturers! One lecture was by Glen Foster and Mike Stedman, creators of a cell-phone effect called "Fancraft". This was described as a "must have" effect, and so I reached out to one of the creators, Mike, to find out about it.

The basic plot is this: you have your participant ( or your entire audience! ) text a magic word of your choosing to a certain number - an auto responder replies with a link for them to click on, but not just yet! First, you have a card/coin/symbol/word/object rendomly (!) selected, and displayed. Then they click on the link, and it takes them to a webpage where you are seen holding a picture of the chosen item...a perfect carry-with-you prediction!

Now, this is not an app! Nothing has to be downloaded onto their phone. And, it is hands off - they do everything (except the force).

Best of all, the software remembers their number, and stores it in a database so that you can text to them later (whenever you want) to tell them about your upcoming shows, events, products for sale, etc. A perfect list builder for your personal advertising.

Plus, there's a timer that is customizable that will forward them directly to your webpage, Facebook page, etc., after a specified length of time (set by you)to bring you into their awareness again, reminding them about the great time they had when you amazed them, and once again (!) advertising you, the magician, to them.

In this day and age Google says that 90% of all shop-and-sales are done on cell phones, and there are more than 1 billion phones out there. Plus, everyone carries their phone with them when they leave the house! So you can be naked and still perform a miracle for them!

Mike told me that he is trying to get this available in Canada, and the more performers who show interest, the better the chances. So if you are interested, send me an email to rleethoughts@gmail.com with the subject line "Fancraft" and I will add you to the list...he is planning an online demo of the trick with a full explanation of all the details, and we will let you know the date and time!

So, the salient points: their own cell phone, you just have to set it up and force anything you can imagine, they do all the work, nothing is downloaded, it is not an app, their information is stored so you can market to them in the future and make more money by performing more often!

If you're interested, send me the email, and we'll go from there! It would be great to have this in Canada, for everything from street performing to corporate shows to tv and radio performances...

Hope to hear from you!
