It's a close-up version of the great illusion!

You start to count backwards from 10 to 1, and when you reach one, you tell the audience to look at your nose.

YOUR HEAD APPEARS TO GROW LIKE A BALLOON BEING INFLATED!

Every audience will want you to do it again so this time you have the audience select a partner. Spin the disk the other way, and when they look at their partner

THEIR PARTNER'S HEAD BEGINS TO SHRINK!

The spiral can be carried in your pocket. It is perfect for table hopping and strolling .

About Illusion EFX

I got my start as a professional magician as an illusionist. First in talent competitions, then a circus and finally cruise ships and resorts. I was always looking for something new and different to add to my act - however I was constantly faced with the challenge of not enough time or money to do everything I wanted. That's when I started thinking about practical solutions that could be put together quickly and inexpensively.

My first books (Solo-X and Illusion F/X) dealt with these problems. Later on I published the Illusion Impact series (Voodoo Box, Specter Cabinet, etc.) and presented more easy-to-build solutions.

Yet people kept asking me to do a video so they could see ideas in action. This is finally it...

Illusion EFX features seven illusions involving everything from mini motorcycles to audience members. All are easy to build requiring no power tools and not much money.

Whether you're a Las Vegas illusionist looking for something new to add to your act or a high school student looking for something to do in the talent show, Illusion EFX has something you can use.

In Illusion EFX I'll show you everything from a flash mini motorcycle production to a method for walking through a brick wall that'll only cost you $5. I also show you how to build a Shadow Box illusion for under $50 that folds down totally flat and assembles in seconds.

In the DVD I show you the effect, explain the theory behind the effect, teach you how to make it and then how to perform it. I also show 3D renderings of how illusions are set up on stage so you'll understand all the behind the scenes details.

I didn't have it back then, but it's here now...

Best,
Andrew

MAGIC OF THE PENDRAGONS #1

Stage illusionists historically have been extremely secretive about their craft. Not just about the secrets to the illusions themselves—the mechanics are just a small part—but about the real secrets of what turns a stage illusion into a breathtaking moment of pure magic.

Now, for the first time ever on video, Jonathan and Charlotte Pendragon, the "First Couple" of magic and perhaps the greatest exponents of grand illusion ever to grace a stage, lift away the veil and show you the real secrets of stage illusion —the insider information that could only be gained by performing in over 50 countries for the last quarter of a century.

THE SWALLOWING SWORD


Closely associated with magic are amazing feats like fire eating, swallowing swords, beds of nails, and other such carnival demonstrations. And like magic tricks, many of these have a trick or secret to them, making them in fact much easier to do than what the audience believes.
While years of practice and training will enable a person to actually push a sword down his throat, and pull it out again, now anyone can perform this amazing feat with a trial or two in a most convincing manner.

Supplied complete and ready to use, with instructions.As used by Tommy Cooper!

SAWING ILLUSION SECRETS COMPILED BY B. DAS

The companion volume to 'Levitation Secrets' and in a similar format. The author, in this soft cover large size 24 page tape bound book, profusely illustrated by Soumya Deb has compiled the secrets of over a dozen ways of performing another of the most famous magic illusions.
Contents include 'Sawing A woman In Halves' (Selbit's method, and two Horace Goldin methods), Abbott's method (using circular saw and a plank), Vertical Sawing Illusion plus an improved method suggested by the author, Miss Boots - another vertical sawing by Ovette, One Man Sawing illusion, Sawing Illusion (Abbott's method), Thin Model Sawing (two versions), Buzz Saw Illusion, Super Magician's Self Sawing (as performed by David Copperfield), Homicide Illusion and the Torrini's method of Sawing A Woman In Halves.

This is not a book of illusion blue prints and is certainly not intended to be a complete source for the sawing illusions. Most magicians will find this an excellent source for knowing different methods and their pros and cons before selecting one for their use. The intelligent performer will find the information provided sufficient to make or get made any of these illusions. A recommended book for anyone interested in large illusion magic.

BROOM THRU BODY ILLUSION BY PETER LOUGHRAN
Video Clip Available
The performer introduces a small ordinary looking lobby broom, and places it behind their back. With both ends of the broom visible at ALL times, the broom then melts slowly into the performer's body sideways! The performer twists the broom inside his body in different directions. The performer turns his body from side to side showing all angles that the broom is indeed inside his body and both ends of the broom are visible at ALL times during the illusion. For the stunning finale the performer turns 360 degrees as they pull the broom completely through their body for a thunderous applause.

The illusion is very versatile and boasts other performing applications, including thrusting the broom up through your body, or simply pulling the broom straight through your body in one solid motion without ever taking your hands off either end of the broom!

Great for stage, street performers, illusionists, comedy magicians, MCs, and can be done close up.

Also perfect for themed events such as Halloween, etc.

MATRIX MIRROR
Video Clip Available
The magician shows the audience a large framed mirror. They can watch and touch it from both sides. A black sack is placed over middle of the mirror. The spectators can still see the mirror protruding from both sides of the sack. A silk is produced and the performer pushes it through center of the sack and mirror. He then pulls the rest of the silk out from behind the mirror! But this is only the first wonderful effect!

Now the spectators notice the sack is bulging and stretching as something moves between the mirror and the black fabric. Suddenly the magician's hand POPS out through the mirror and the sack! He wiggles his fingers and pushes his arm forward about 5 inches. Turning his body to the left the audience can see that his arm is penetrating the mirror! The magician pulls his arm out from the mirror and removes the sack to reveal that the mirror is perfectly unharmed!

The audience can be shown both sides and touch the mirror.

Comes complete with Matrix Mirror, 18 page, full-color, photo-illustrated instruction book and padded, wooden carrying case.

Dimensions Approximately 19" x 14 1/2" (48.25cm x 36.75cm)

SAW BY SEAN FIELDS

A spectacular nightmare from the demented mind of Sean Fields!

The performer unravels a length of thread. He then immediately, and VISIBLY, begins to SAW the thread straight into his throat! The spectators can actually see the thread deep under the performer's flesh, from ANY ANGLE!

Now for the REALLY disturbing part; the performer begins to pull the thread back through his throat! This is grotesque; the spectator can actually SEE the thread tearing through the skin!

After the thread has ripped though the skin, there is no wound, no scars, nothing to see, and nothing to find. Just a hunk of thread, a naked neck and the memory of an unspeakable weirdness.

Sean Fields has created a deeply disturbing effect, and has teamed up with a somewhat concerned Rodney Reyes to make it available to those that like this sort of thing.

Saw = Geek magic. Redefined.

Full instructions are also given, as to how you can place a Polo mint in your mouth, "Saw" through your Throat/neck with the thread, then you PULL the thread forward from your throat, & the POLO MINT IS NOW THREADED ON THE THREAD!!!

Also contained is another idea where you "Eat" the thread & then PULL IT OUT OF YOUR THROAT! Or Belly Button, as David Blaine did!

Mike Danata comments:

"I squirmed all the way through the performance & the explanation of this trick, I think I'll stick to Linking Rings!!)
