ALCARDMY by Mike Liu and VORTEX MAGIC
Imagine being able to create an illusion that looks like Special FX but being able to do it LIVE. A three phase routine where a card VISUALLY MORPHS into a signed playing card.
From his working repertoire Mike Liu shares his highly visual morph of a playing card into a signed playing card. Mike has performed this routine under test conditions from street performances to strolling and close-up corporate work. It has become his signature routine that not only fools lay people but has fooled many a knowledgeable magician.
No pipe-dreams - this is audience tested over many years to get maximum impact. A very visual and original card change.
This very visual morph happens up-close using a very clever gimmick that does all the work for you. During the morph the spectators see the card actually smudge and then morph into the card they signed moments before.
Each gimmick is custom made and does most of the work for you.
EFFECT: A three phase card morph routine where a card is selected from a RED back deck and signed on the face. It is then lost in the deck. The performer then shows the face card of the deck which starts to SMUDGE as he waves his hand then visibly morphs it into the signed card, which the spectator then turns over to now discover their card has a BLUE back. The card is given away as a souvenir.
