DAVID BLAINE PERFORMS THE SEARING ANGLE ZERO TORN CORNER TRICK IN NEW TV SPECIAL
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.

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.
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.
Daniel Madison is an incredible magician, his belief in developing your own tricks and gaffs is an inspiration. Angle-Z is just another testament to his ingenuity.
The effect is strong, and pretty easy to do. The tutorial was thorough and gave some good tips.
If you use gaffs, this is a must! Such a great effect, and your spectators get a piece of the magic.
This is just so good. Super clean and devilishly simple. It allows so much room for creativity.
I was reasonably certain I knew the method but really wanted to learn it the right way. This project is worth every penny. DM goes into great detail - watch the whole thing, at least a few times. I went out last night and performed it... bearing DM's advice (which would not have been how I'd have tried it by just guessing) and, I swear, I got the biggest reaction I've ever gotten. They freaked the f*** out!
If you already know this piece from earlier - the touches he adds in this dvd that he admits to wishing he had shared long ago are what made me nail it. Hell, I wasn't even worried about it working - I knew it would.
Pick this up. If you don't have this effect in your regular work, you will.
Great trick!!! I know it's a bit pricey but it's worth it...and Chris... If your a beginner like you are you should really focus on getting fundamentals down. I don't want to discourage you but it's a long road to be OK at magic.
This is an excellent trick, but the download is not worth $30.
The effect is, undoubtedly, a very powerful one and I can certainly recommend learning and performing it. But I do not believe that the download is worth the price, since the method is quite evident, and the (admittedly very good) added tips Daniel Madison gives are not worth $30 in my opinion.
If you have not already thought of the method, or if you want to improve your performance, this is certainly recommendable.
Excellent trick! Simple yet so powerful, it is bound to create great reactions. The explanations are very direct and detailed. I have been performing this quite often.
I personally don't understand the other reviews, I can't believe they are even real! Daniel Maddison is a very talented magician and Ellusionist is probably one of the best magic shops there is, but $30 for this??? Seriously, I spotted the entire method from the trailer, 90mins explanation is not required and I truly believe tricks like this are what put beginners off magic and are far too expensive for what they are, for the record I am a beginner I know roughly 5 tricks and struggle to do a double lift. I would advice no one to pay $30 for this trick but DO NOT hold my opinion of this trick against Ellusionist or Daniel Maddison. But save your money for a good book.
First off, Daniel Madison does an amazing job on this. I think in the past when he first released his first views and everything else on Angle Z it was horrible but I truly believe he's done a great job with this. He presents a few ways on how he performs Angle Z and shows you techniques and ways you should perform this. I think this is definitely a great opening trick not something you want to end on but something like this is very simple and doesn't take a lot of practice what's so ever. This is great not only for professionals but also for beginners. The only reason I give this 4 stars is because of the fact it's $30 just to learn how to perform Angle Z. Love Daniel Madison can't wait for more.
