With the spectator's finger touching the top of the deck, the deck slowly splits itself in half. With a delicate touch, their chosen card shoots out of the pack. The deck is completely examinable before and after the effect. They will find nothing. They will have no explanation.
From the mind of David Jade and Damien Vappereau comes Static. A simple, powerful, beautiful effect that is as practical as it is evocative.
Static was directed by Dan and Dave and shot in High Definition. Everything you need to perform the effect is included, including ample supply of the gimmick you'll need to make the magic happen.
Often the most powerful magic is the simplest. Static is attributed to this mentality. The spectator places their own finger on top of the deck, slowly moves it to the side, and half of the pack moves along with it. Magic does not get much more interactive than that.
Easy to learn and simple to perform. This is one of those few effects that allows you to focus on your presentation and performance, rather than the technique.
Very versatile - I use it as a potent visual in my ambitious card routine. Separating the top of the deck into a separate pile, the selected card is put back in the bottom half. Placing the two piles just right on the table allows the shot out card to land on the other pile (the top of the deck). Best of all, once you start, everything happens in the spectator's hands.
An awesome casual trick that is fast and simple. I recommend it!
The gimmick is easy to make, you could make several of them and leave it in every deck you have in order to be prepared for the trick all time.
The method is easy, it's almost a self working trick once you have the gimmick.
