Jamie Daws (creator of smash hit effect ‘The Gathering’) is back with SCARED - an impromtpu haunted deck effect. A creation so devious, so ingenious and so practical, it’s SCARY! And, this incredible animation of a deck of playing cards is SUPER EASY TO DO! In fact, it’s almost SELF WORKING!
Jamie has taken an age old principle and invented a super streamlined, hyper-practical method to make it happen. Now there’s no need to carry extra gimmicks - no thread, no wires and no magnets - the SCARED DVD arms you with the ability to fashion a cunning gaff ‘on the fly’, meaning you can cause any regular deck to eerily cut itself directly to a selected card at a moments notice.
"Really, really terrific! You’re ready to go whenever! Two thumbs way, way UP!" - Cameron Francis
"One of the cleverest Haunted Deck methods I’ve seen." - Peter Duffie
"I have it. I use it and I find it a fantastic method!" - Alan Rorrison
"This a clever and creative solution to this classic plot in magic. I love it!" - Peter Eggink
"...closest thing you will get to real magic...Simple yet MIND-BLOWING!!" - Ben Fisher
On this DVD you’ll learn the basic principle and how to fashion an ordinary playing card into an incredible ‘haunted deck’ gimmick in less than FIVE SECONDS! Then Jamie, together with Dave Forrest, will walk you through a variety of refinements of the original gaff and teach you everything you need to know about animating the deck including a number of exciting handling variations.
Plus, you’ll learn no less than FOUR complete routines using the SCARED gaff in very clever ways that will ensure you get maximum impact out of the gimmick.
1. SCARED AGAIN - A spectral drawing on a Joker causes the deck to cut itself to a selection, then the drawing is discoverd on the selected card!
2. SCARED BLUE - Two selections are made. The deck eerily cuts to one of them and the other changes from red to blue!
3. SCARY THOUGHTS - A spectator jots down a card they have in mind. The paper is balled up and placed onto the deck which then cuts itself directly at the card!
4. TRIPLE SCARED - The deck eerily cuts to a selected card. The second card reverses itself and the third card is written on its back!
