Anyone got any tips on how to use this with plus size phone? I got difficulty in using the "scissors" gimmick, with Galaxy note 9.

Hey guys,
I would like to inform you that we added some additional handlings and ideas that go over smaller hands and/or bigger phones.
You can watch it by logging in the product page, the same way you watched the original instructions.

Best regards,

Good to see Murphys also cares for the physically challenged magician. Smile

Now that I had some time to practice and perform this, it has been my absolute favorite effect.
I really hope they release an extension pack with different silhouettes.

Great to hear. What circumstances exactly do you perform this in? Social, paid gigs? Indoor, outdoor, daytime/evening? One on one, parlour? Curious because of the specific nature of this routine.

Titanas, thanks for the heads up about Murphy's extra video "assist" for people with, um, small hands. While I appreciate Murphy going the extra mile to help extend the appeal of this amazing gimmick and effect, I have to say that the video had me in stitches. The magician presenting the "fix" (sorry, I no longer remember his name) basically says, "Hey, we covered what to do with smaller hands and bigger phones already, but we're going to give you a few extra words of advice." Then he proceeded to explain how to design a nuclear submarine. All you need to re-engineer this gimmick so that it will work is: 20 tools, a well-lighted space, two hours of your time, and enough patience to fill a department store. In the end, I came away unsure whether the Rube Goldberg contraption would really work, but convinced that, in the right context, simulated earnestness can be funnier than the best stand-up or slapstick. Bless you for being so responsive to your customers, but even more for making me laugh.

The best reviewer out there (as far as I'm concerned), Steve Faulkner, has done a great review on this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYxbsYLHI9Y

The idea is good, but the gimmick expensive. Hard to spend so much money on a gimmick and a fixed animation. The gimmick is not difficult to understand since Moto Mods already offers something similar, it would simply need to add an additional L / S. Too bad that the effect can not follow us rather than follow the fixed effect.

Moreover, Silhouette is not suitable for the workers, except the artists who intervene on stage. Do we imagine a close-up to encourage viewers to come closer to a wall to see an effect? Clearly no. Especially since many constraints limit the effect: dark place, solid wall and white.

You will need to have the cover for your cell phone, be honest without it does not work without cover. The price is high for what you receive. It's not something everyone can do easily. Finally, viewers can easily guess how it works if your angle is not good.

The whole thing requires a lot of work, especially the "animated" gimmicks (map, glasses, pink).

I will be as respectful as possible.
You said that moto mods does something similar (motomods is a pr****or) and you also said that you need to follow the animation rather than the animation follows you and that spectators can see how it works.
I am sure it will fool them, it fooled you even after 21 pages of this thread after some massive exposure.
For what you receive (there are a lot of stuff in the box) this is very cheap, I am surprised you think it’s expensive even though you imply it’s a pr*****or, if it was that, there would have been at least 10 times more expensive Smile

You’ve got like 6 other fake profiles on the Café now. You repeatedly jump on older threads with your fake profiles and “offer” nonsensical Post for what I assume to create activity under those fake profiles. You’ve got a bogus app you are trying to sell. Café has rules you know. Try investing in some real marketing material. Green machine is too small of an audience for that to work.

Ah. Didn’t notice that yet. That would explain a lot.

I’ve witnessed a Silhouette workshop at Fabiolus-Magic in Berlin with Tobias.
This guy is out of this world, very creative, funny, a good teacher and VERY CREATIVE.
He works and lives Silhouette. This piece and what he has done with it... it’s exceptional.
We had a lot of fun. His routines reflect good humor but also stunning poetry.

Let me assure you that it works also without a flip case cover although I still prefer a flip case (for better angles).
I‘am sure Tobias will be on top of the magic world soon - he deserves it.

Hervé Troccaz your assumptions are simply not true.
Try to invest some work in things that push you forward in live.
