Summer is the time for novelty! Here are a few quick, visual effects bearing the distinctive stamp of Mickael Chatelain.
Mickael is taking this opportunity to offer his latest, JET-BOX!
There is no lack of innovative visual effects possible with JET-BOX!
As you read the following description, be aware that you, too, will be able to learn these effects in just minutes!
Effect #1: The Sub Trunk
Show two cards to your spectators, let's say the Four of Hearts and the Queen of Clubs. Slip the Four of Hearts into the card case and close the flap. As for the queen, you simply place her on top of the case. As in Houdini's Metamorphosis, the two cards change places in a fraction of a second! Yes, an instantaneous "metamorphosis" in full view of the spectators! Just a second earlier, the queen was a top the case and the four inside. The very next second - poof! - each has changed places!
Believe it or not, you immediately hand out both cards for examination!
There's NOTHING to see! An effect that will transfix everyone - visual and lightning fast!
Effect #2: Ambitious
A good Ambitious Card routine is always a close-up favorite!
Why not finish your routine like this:
After your spectator's card as returned to the top of the deck several times, take the card case in one hand and the spectator's card in the other. Rub the card on your forearm. It vanishes without a trace! Open the case and THERE'S THE CARD!
Yes, the case can be examined, as it's COMPLETELY ordinary!
The disappearance is lightning fast. This ending will earn pride of place in your Ambitious Card routine as everything happens within inches of the spectators!
Effect #3: BYE-BYE
Change one card into another! The ability to make a card disappear little by little is now within reach of everyone! Pass your hand slowly in front of the card in order to bring about a miracle. Imagine a card, say the Queen of Hearts, is lying on the card case. By merely passing your hand in front of the card, you either transform it into another card or make it disappear completely!
You can adapt this to the ending of any routine you'd like!
EFFECT #4: SNAP CARD
Have a spectator freely choose a card.
The card - an ORDINARY card - is signed and lost in the deck. Take an indifferent card, say the King of Spades, and place it on the case. Hold the card and case in front of your spectators. On the count of three, drop the case into the spectator's hand. The King of Spades that you were holding has changed into the spectator's signed card! If you wish, you can show that the king has reappeared inside the box.
This is Mickael's favorite JET-BOX effect, without question! MANY other effects are possible with JET-BOX! Let your imagination run wild and come up with new breathtaking effects to stun your audience!
