Ed has also performed his amazing close-up illusions at Las Vegas' Caesar's Palace, lectured at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, and in 2005 was the star of the Ed Ellis TV Show.
The following effects here are straight from Ed's working repertoire and are for both the beginning and advanced card worker! As an added feature this DVD includes Magic Castle and TV footage from Ed's promo reel.
• Materialize -
A visual stunner! A seemingly impossible appearance of a card. Then it's repeated!
• Aces Escape -
A classic plot where cards escape to the top.
• Materialize Selection -
The impact of the "magician blew it" ploy is used here. The comeback is a visual stunner.
• Ellis Fan Flourish Control and Billboard Display -
A suggested opener. A top card control followed by a one handed eye catching four card display.
• Illusion or Reality -
A signed card begins to multiply... Then disappears and changes to four aces! Which can be shown front and back!
• Double Double Surprise -
A suggested souvenir finale. This simple and powerful routine leaves them shaking their heads!
• Jumping Jacks -
As pure as it gets! This is an ungaffed packet effect made with your cards!
• Kubota Jacks -
A powerful transposition of two cards done with consistent looking moves.
• The Great Escape -
A suggested ambitious finale. A card immediately escapes after being pushed into the deck. This effect seems impossible!
• Style -
Multiple ways are shown to handle a card with flair.
• Use Your Favorite Method -
Ed covers some basic moves, the double lift, Elmsley count and tilt are covered here.
• Bonus -
A double lift is taken from the center of the deck face up! Very offbeat and cool!
So sit back, relax and enjoy this amazing DVD presentation, and see for yourself why many refer to Ed Ellis as the "World's Fastest Hands."
