Speak his name 3 times aloud and he will appear. This is the legend of Poncho Diablo. Steve Fearson's newest release is a close up animation and levitation illusion like no other.
And it's woven around a ghost story presentation that will leave your audience wondering if they may have been witness to something more than just a magic trick.
This effect uses a deck of cards, which becomes posessed by the spirit of a legendary Mexican gambler named Poncho Diablo.
The deck moves across the table, crawling out from under the hand of the spectator.
It then levitates UP while the spectator presses down on it. They can see clear through underneath the deck while it rises and can see no visible means of support as the deck pushes up and out of it's cellophane wrapper.
It feels as if the deck is being pushed up by an invisible force, as if you have captured a spirit inside the fragile cellophane. And this spirit pushes HARD!
There are virtually no angle or lighting restrictions and it is entirely self contained. The magic actually happens IN THEIR HANDS. They don't just see the magic... they FEEL it.
The cards can be removed from the pack and used for other effects, they are ordinary.
The DVD shows you how to easily make this diabolical prop out of common and inexpensive items, using any deck of playing cards. We've even included a few goodies so you can get started right away!
You won't believe how it works. It uses no threads, wires, magnets, electronics or any of the traditional methods. It is a self-contained, entirely unique creation from the master of levitations, Steve Fearson. The method is unlike anything else on the market.
The effect alone is devastating, and the story by itself is intriguing. The two combined result in a true performance piece that you will be proud to present, and your audiences will remember forever. They will believe they've seen real magic.
