Title: Angle Z - Download
Click to Read Full Description


Angle-Z was introduced in 2007 as "Angle Zero". At the time, Daniel didn't realize the true power of the effect. He taught it in a mere 5 minutes and gave no subtleties or further instruction.

Over the next five years Angle Z was discovered by a who's who of magic and added to their performance, due to the extreme power and simplicity of the effect.

Daniel Madison

Daniel began to get comments from friends and acquaintances in the business, many of whom shared striking routines and effective subtleties with him. He decided to teach all that he had learned and developed on Angle Zero, and changed the name to Angle Z as an ode to covering everything about the miracle trick from "A to Z".

A Note From Daniel Madison...

Angle Z has been in my repertoire since I started performing tricks in 1999. The Angle Z principal was first published in a PDF book I released in 2006 and it took no more than a paragraph to both describe and explain, and at the time, I saw the effect as no more than a ‘filler’ for the book. The idea went unnoticed.

In 2007, once again, I used the effect as a ‘filler’ for a DVD project. Both the performance and explanation combined lasted no more than 10 minutes. However, this time, the effect did not go unnoticed.

Since then, Angle Z has become something of a signature effect of mine which has become synonymous with my name. Every magician I meet has their own take on the idea, each as powerful as the last and in 2013 I was overwhelmed to announce that it would be a part of a David Blaine TV special. Blaine feels strongly about the effect.

Angle Z

Despite how well the idea had been received, I always felt somewhat unsatisfied with the lack of personal attention I’d given the effect in its previous publications. During a shoot in Hollywood in 2013, I was given the opportunity to pay justice to the effect, and dedicate an entire video to Angle Z. The effect is so powerful, and performed by so many professionals, that I knew I needed to open a door to the true work on this effect.

This video is what Angle Z should have been from the start. It is over an hour in explanation and I have left no stone unturned. The explanation is intricate in both technique and psychology, I have included alternate performances and some of the variations from close friends. Forgive me for not giving Angle Zero the honor it deserves from the beginning. I am Daniel Madison. This is Angle Z.

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT "THE TORN CORNER CARD TRICK David Blaine performed "the torn corner card trick" or Angle Z for celebrities Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde in his special for ABC called ‘Real or Magic’. The effect is performed by a who's who in magic.... from Dan White (Discovery’s ‘The Supernaturalist’) to Calen Morelli (Magic Consultant to David Copperfield). We hear Dynamo will be featuring it soon.

Angel zero

Excellent, detailed and well explained. Never Heard of this before, but. Saw Steven brundge perform a versione on AGT.

Aged like wine..

Over 15 years later and I still perform this nearly daily. It is super easy and super powerful, especially if you get to prep just slightly ahead of time.

Colleages think I'm a wizard!

As a prison guard, i perform alot of tricks in front of prisoners and colleages. Some of my colleages think I'm a wizard after finding the torn corner of a card in their radio or pocket.

An amazing effect tought by one of the all time best deceptive artists, MAD love for this one!

From Angle to Z

This video covers not only how to execute the trick but also the theory behind it. As someone who mostly uses books as a learning tool, Angle Z is the gold standard on presentation and content.

DM gets an A+

Daniel Madison is a well-spoken teacher in Angle-Z. His efforts must become a model for all teachers to follow. I've already enjoyed showing this magical miracle to others who were absolutely blown away by it. Thanks for sharing DM.

Expertly explained

Angle-Z might just be the best explained routine I have ever seen. Daniel goes through the routine a number of times, and suggests different variations and even talks about some of the things people integrate into the routine that he feels don't work well. You truly get a sense of the routine from every angle (pun intended).

Paul Nogas
Great Detail

I really enjoy the level of detail and options given in this video.

Darren M
Really clear and helpful

Would have like a bit more camera variety and a few close ups.

Patrick M
Awesome Trick

This trick will definitely get you a wow moment from the audience. It needs some preparation and a good eye to finde suitable places for the final reveal. But Daniel Madison explained everything very good.
