What You Will Learn
In addition to the numerous sleights and subtleties Chad has to offer, you will learn the Clip Shift, a move kept underground for nearly a decade and talked about all over the world.
- its variations
- and 7 highly visual effects
The Clip Shift is a utility move, like a double lift. It can also be used to palm a card, as a color change, a control, a pass and so much more. It's a move with infinite possibilities and on this DVD are some of Chad's favorite applications and tricks, such as:
A protruding face-up selection slowly and visually sinks through the entire deck landing in the spectator's awaiting hand. In a blink, the whole process is reversed, bringing the card instantly to the top.
Two selections are lost and a random card is removed and held face up. With a quick shake, it visually changes into the first selection. The spectator is then asked to shake the card, which changes into the second selection.
A single selection viewed by three spectators is buried into the pack. After shuffling, three random cards are removed, shown, and handed out to the three spectators who are asked to confirm they are not the selection. With a snap, each spectator is instructed to turn over his or her card, and each card is seen to have changed into the selection. Each card is different.
After explaining sleight of hand will be used to find the spectator's selection, a one-handed flourish swirls the selection from the center of the deck. The cards are taken behind the back with one hand. A second later, the hand is brought out, showing the selection's three mates all protruding from the edges of the deck.
The four Kings are produced in mid-air. Three selections are shuffled back into the pack. One at a time the Kings slowly and visually vanish only to re-appear with the three selections sandwiched between them.
A puzzling effect where a selected card shows character. Straight away a returned face-down selection appears face up and upon removal it turns face down, visually. The inversions continue, leading to a chaotic climax which must be seen to be disbelieved.
A double color change with one hand that begins by showing the Aces buried throughout the pack. By waving the cards, the two blacks Aces instantly appear face up on top and bottom. This is followed by another magical appearance of the two reds Aces face up on top and bottom.
Chad goes into intense detail explaining the Clip Shift and then breakes each effect down to its core. Chad's expert instruction was shot with two cameras in high definition for a crystal clear learning experience.
