We deliberately included a full length performance so you can see the possibilities of easy banter with the routine. Justin is the master of this kind of lead in.
The moves are extremely simple in Aftershock but the impact plays BIG. A torn, signed playing card restores itself in a FLASH. It happens so quickly that often you will get stunned silence until the trick sinks in.
Add Aftershock to your repertoire. It will pay for itself with a million reactions.
Easy set up
Reactions are always great! A bit if slight of hand will let you use a double pull.. great trick.
I usually wait until i have done the routine several times before reviewing. I guessed the method but supporting a teacher/magician like justin is worth it. Money is well spent when your spectator is seriously stuck for 3 seconds and has no idea was just happened. Awesome routine.
I love JM. He's such an amazing performer and he teaches this effect so well that anyone can perform it with practice. The method is simple but incredibly effective and the reactions are great. It's not one of those effects that's going to garner a huge immediate reaction, it's more subtle, as people's minds melt as they try to grasp what happened.
It is an amazing trick but it can be a bit noisy before you rip the card. I suggest using Rubber Cement instead of what he suggests.
This will require a little misdirection at the 'business moment' of the effect, but the sheer impact makes it worth perfecting that moment.
Plays less well in front of a camera than some effects, but in real use it will floor a small audience. If you enjoy this kind of effect check out Descent and Vibration, they're both awesome.
After a few years of leaving the art alone I decided to get back in because of Justin Miller's work. I have purchased several of his instructional videos now and have to say his work with this effect is outstanding. There are a few subtleties that would allow this to be done with next to no setup, so keep that in mind after you purchase this. I look forward to more.
straight forward, simple.....amazing.....it's always the simple ones that seem to amaze the most :)
One Word... WOW! This trick is incredible. Hard hitting, Visual, Mind Blowing, and Simple to Perform. I must admit, it is an off beat effect where the audience sometimes do not know how to respond so you may not be satisfied with the reaction, but trust me, they will respond later, hence the name Aftershock. This is a must have in any repertoire. Buy this now!
Great trick highly recommended. The gimmick is really easy.
I get GREAT REACTIONS FROM THIS!!!!
AMAZING!!! just hands down amazing trick, and for the price... you cannot get anything better! :)LOVE IT!
