Some. Estimation of 5mins per gimmick. Although I'm sure some people would be much faster.

Just skipped through the download quickly in work.
I hate doing what needs to be done to prepare the gimmick Smile

Will have an attempt tonight and see how I get on.

Hate because....? it is tedious or does it require superhuman skill to do correctly or other reason?
Materials are easy to find?

If you skip to the Streamlined Explanation, you can cut your prep time down dramatically whilst making it a whole lot easier too.

Watch now, in ellusionist video is almost visible that the card is a gimmick! look the tickness of the signed card... bad!

This effect looks really good - I wonder though how the method is not discovered if they keep the card - looks as though the backs are restored and the fronts are not so much

What’s the trade off for the streamlined version prep?

The tear looks really fair in the video -so even if it is just the backs...if done well I guess it is ok.

Great stuff!
will go really well with 'revive' methinks!, I have actually just ordered some 'twisted' card gimmicks I designed myself for revive, and I have also worked out a way to make the staples 'vanish', so with face off I can repeat without staples and do the same kind of effect twice, but with different methods so they cant catch how its done!

if you really hate doing the prep needed, you could order a full deck of split cards from Ekaterina that are used for her 'layers' effect, just need to stick them half back together!

if I have said too much... delete the post, thx!

So if we buy split cards, is that the prep done?

Even the name of the trick gives away the method so maybe you said too much but probably not. The $19 is worth it for then handling alone and gimmick making even if you choose to purchase the ekatmagic link - great tip BTW.

As far as being a rip-off - I'll let those two creators battle it out.

Did Bernie fool Penn and Teller?

Well this seems like a ripoff of my friend Bennie Chickering Trick he showed around underground years ago.

Here is a full performance of Bennie’s trick.

Hey,

Ron submitted this to Ellusionist 28/11/2016. Although his submission video was upload on 09/02/2016 and from talking to Ron, it's evident that this is something he created many years ago. He's also shared performances of this effect on social media, publicly, for years too. Your link seems to have been uploaded in 02/08/017. If you want to message me privately for the proof, then feel free. So, potentially your friend may have seen Ron's original videos and been inspired? Maybe reach out and find out. Also, if it's "underground", then how could it have been' ripped off' by someone on a different continent?

You need be very careful about using language like that before posting in a public forum. It undermines the hard work of every artist that's wrongly accused, that's spent years developing their oringial ideas. I mean no offence at all meant in my reply but I just want to be factual and open about the origins of Ron's work.


Cheers,
Lloyd
