To perfectly interweave a deck, that is shuffle the cards one-for-one, is by far one of the more challenging feats of our craft. Known as a faro, this form of perfect shuffle has many applications for the magician. However, if one were able to unmix the cards, that is separate them one-for-one, this could provide unparalleled support for new possibilities. The Anti-Faro, a concept devised by Christian Engblom, which accomplishes exactly what its name implies, is real and finally revealed.
The Anti-Faro is a groundbreaking discovery and a singular leap forward into the design and construction of effects utilizing the faro. It is no surprise Christian's method for unshuffling the cards has reached legendary acclaim in recent years. Once thought impossible to achieve, the Anti-Faro has evolved mechanically from a concept to an efficient technique.
Whether you're willing to challenge yourself to learn the Anti-Faro, or are simply curious about its potential, this video offers an in-depth course on everything from the inspiration and concept to the physics behind why and how it works. For those of you incredulous about its practicality, witness it executed perfectly several times over and discover how even a not-so-perfect Anti-Faro can be useful.
"When we first heard about the Anti-Faro we had little understanding of how it could work or if it were even possible. At the time, it was only being talked about and no one had seen it executed perfectly. We were adamant it could be done though and after two years of practice, we only began to experience near complete anti-faros.
Had we known what we know now, we could have become fluent in the Ant-Faro in just a few short months."
Join Christian Englbom, Alex Pandrea and Paul Wilson in this one-hour session on the technique, theory, and applications of the Anti-Faro.
One thing that I enjoy about the Christian Englbom is he goes over every single aspect of the move their is and one can tell that he enjoys sharing this concept. That combined with Alex Pandrea and Paul Wilson is a definite deal maker. This disc is, in my opinion, even more incredible than its predecessor with regard to the move and its potential.
It has the D&D stamp of approval, so you know that you just can't go wrong!
If you have previously purchased Que Raro by Dani DaOrtiz and Christian Engblom to learn the Anti-Faro you will already know what he previously thought was on the method to this madness, but in this explanation he corrects his method and explains why it really works and it is just amazing how this can be accomplished. I can always expect great things from the bucks and this is no exception they put together the best possible way to learn this unbelievable move and if anyone else tried to accomplish teaching this it would have been such a let down. It is easily worth the $20 dollars.
