Looks great and I can see how the ending plays really well.
iTime Rewind was pretty fun but this seems more organic.
Really dig the pacing of the phone reveal followed with the watch
reveal and then hitting everyones device. The impact propagates
outward like a shockwave.
Can you select your own lockscreen image?

Ok I still don't understand what you're saying, my questions below your statements below:

Quote:
Here’s what the spectator sees:

Let’s say the magician shows the time.. Spectator named 5. Ex: 1:05.


My questions on this statement:

1. The magician is showing the real time, at the time just before he asks the spectator to name a number of minutes?
If it's the real time, it can't work as you can't really make time go backwards irrespective of what the visual shows, so it's probably the 2nd option below?

2. Or the magician is showing the time on his phone, which is some time in the future, by say 5 or 10 minutes?
If so, wouldn't some spectator notice it's not the actual time? Some are wearing watches and it's a simple matter to glance down at their wrists at the moment the "real" time is mentioned by the magician - right? Or do you have a process that ensures this is not the case? If so, is this what we're really paying for?

Quote:
Magician makes the times rewinds back to 1:00 (5 mins). Spectator brings out their phone or 1000 spectators bring out the phones the double check the time and YES it will be 1:00. Hope this makes sense.

3. This is related to question two.

Quote:
I will be sharing a full performance of this soon. Thanks!

4. Not sure how your full performance will address question 2 above.

Hey,

You are correct. 2nd phone and no people wouldn't question unless you are changing more than 10 mins which isn't really believable for this to work. If I ask you what time it is now without looking at the clock, you would be able to tell whether my clock is faster or slower within 10 mins range. Hope this answers your questions. Thanks.

So I imagine that the spectator chooses the number first and then you call attention to the time
on your phone. When the time appears on the phone it will already be at the appropriate time
from the moment it appears onscreen. Nobody will have any reason to believe that the clock
on your phone is inaccurate. Nobody thinks that way.

I'm going to pick this up very soon. I'm picturing placing the phone face up in the participants hand
and sending a Rubik's cube back in time to its solved state from a few minutes prior.

All time on smart phone should be pretty exact down to the second. So yes.

OK I get it now... Good luck with it, but it's not for me. I think it's better for a one-off performance, but in a strolling situation maybe the word would get around leading to specs checking their watches beforehand.

To me, I think the specs will think it's cute but will quickly deduce it's an app. I don't think it's a stand-alone effect, but maybe a nice add-on to a restoration style effect.

Now it makes complete sense. It gives the ‘impression’ that the spec(s) phone has also gone back in time. I like it but a bit expensive for what it is.

Oh come on people. This is a really nice idea for a bit of theatre. I have bought this because it looks fun. The premise is really good.

What I hate are misleading ads. And I quote.....

[Not only that, spectator can bring out their phone and finds that their time is now rewinds back too!]

That is just not true. Why not make it clear at the start that it will be perceived from the specs point of view, for a limited time only, that their phones have also gone back in time. It doesn’t lessen the effect but makes it clear of its limitations before purchase.

Goina buy this,really like the idea ,just goina use mine for the casual stroll ,maybe a signed coin ,place it in their hand , the time goes back let’s say 8 mins and you casual say 8 mins ago this coin would not have your initials on ,they open their hand and find their initials have gone and then carry on with the rest of the effect and routine

Hey Pegasus,

All of your negative comments are completely unnecessary. What I say is true and I don't see how it's misleading at all. I might as well just explain secrets and everything. What you say literally applies to every product on the market. You are just fishing for secrets. If it's not for you then, there's absolutely no need to purchase. No one is pushing you. And if you have further questions, there's PM option if you haven't noticed.

Let's just keep the thread positive, shall we and let others enjoy.

Thanks!

No they’re not negative comments. It’s the truth. Stop deceiving people. I do like like this, however, it’s good. Only the description I do not like.

That's a little harsh, Pegasus. The ad copy describes the perceived EFFECT. I think Patrick has been helpful at clarifying any confusion:

Can anyone clarify:
Is the time on the spectator’s phone actually altered OR do you only appear to do this by dialling back the time on your own phone from a few minutes fast to the real time of day? The ad copy is a little unclear on this.


You end with the real time at the end.
