Narcissus (Global) by Chris Philpott
Powerful Effects by Chris Philpott. In each of these effects, a spectator's image captured with their own cell phone magically changes under the most impossible conditions!
Easy-to-perform effects your audience has never seen.
Effects that are as memorable as they are impossible - and as moving as they are amazing. This is the version for close-up and stand-up magicians. For the stage we recommend "100 Monkeys"
The effects on this 2-DVD set are:
The Fortune Teller (available in all 12 languages)
You give your volunteer a card that has an image of a "cursed" fortune telling machine on one side and Romani (Gypsy) writing on the other. You borrow a cell phone and take a photo of the spectator holding the card - but when they look at the photo, the Romani words have changed to your language, reflecting the spectator's divination! It's incredibly accurate and can even predict a chosen card!
Unhypnotized (available in all 12 languages)
As you begin to hypnotize someone, you find that she is already hypnotized! Then the magic begins... A beautiful, empowering effect.
No Art (available in all 12 languages)
A Harry Potter spell reveals a secret thought. They ask a spectator to think of one thing, and then have them hold a card that says, "I'm thinking of one thing." They cast the spell "Aparecium" from Harry Potter, and when the spectator now looks at the picture, his secret thought is visible.
The Pledge (available in French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Norwegian and Spanish)
They ask a viewer to pledge to exercise their free will by posing for a photo and holding a card promising to make a free choice. The next time they look at the photo, it perfectly predicted their actions.
I want to see my future (available in German, Hebrew, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish).
Predicting the future is a dangerous thing, and sometimes people get angry with the prophet for what he reveals. To verify a viewer's consent, photograph her with a card that says, "I want to see my future!" But when she looks at the photo, the words on the card have changed, showing her the future in a surprising, accurate, and fun way.
So far, all 100th Monkey effects have been designed for the stage (with close-up bypasses). This is the first time these types of effects have been designed specifically for close-up situations (although there are now overrides for stage work).
