Foreword by Marc Paul (with an include effect)
Introduction by Ben Harris (with three included effects)
A Force In The Shadows
A critical examination of the Silent Running Procedure with the intention of providing the nuance and understanding to ensure a convincing execution.
Hands Off: Silent But Deadly
Steve’s treatment of the Brainwave effect allowing the entire routine to carried out in the spectator’s own hands. The performer NEVER touches the deck.
Jamie Badman & Colin Miller:
(The Underground Collective)
Combining Silent Running with Greg Rostami’s iforce has never been this sweet. You deserve an iphone, just so you can perform this!
SIR Richard Busch’s Think-A-Card
Richard takes us on a different journey, one with a “nod to the dodge” and a different brand of digital finesse.
Small Packet Concepts
Taking advantage of “small packets” and their inherent particulars-in combination with the CrossRoads Set-to create new effects.
The Deck At The Other End (DATOE)
The polar opposite of the CrossRoads Deck. Instead of any card in the CrossRoads Set being absent, to the count of 51-with this deck-there’s always a duplicate of the “thought-of” card, and a count of 53!
Another “feature” routine that plays wonderfully on stage, formally, or under casual performing circumstances. Possibly one of the easiest and most convincing transpositions of a “thought-of” card (this side of the CrossRoads).
A wonderful property of the Deck At The Other End is revealed and it’s uses pondered. Imagine having a duplicate of ANY “thought-of” card, immediately at hand. Well that’s what this is all about-that kind of POWER.
The Headway principle is applied to create a formal and powerful “simulation” of the acclaimed “Berglas effect.” A card is “thought-of” and any number between one and fifty-two is named. You don’t need me to tell you happens next…
This is a new tactic for Direct Mind Reading (Silent Running, 2010). It eliminates what some considered an “iffy” bit, and leads you directly to the specifically “thought-of” card for a full-on “neuro-blast” of a finish.
An expanded CrossRoads Set to match the numeric options offered by two imaginary dice. Play along…
An impromptu method for setting any borrowed deck for a lovely demonstration of pure thought reading. Using Faro shuffles, of course.
Silence of the lambs
Having your entire audience turn their cell phones OFF (as part of a routine) is sheer genius. And, that’s just the beginning! Crazy and effective magic!
