Pit Hartling was the first Vanishing Inc artist featured in a download (remember The Core?). Now he is back with two ingenious and offbeat card miracles, both together for just ten dollars.
Strange Attractors: Pit’s take on Larry Jennnings’ The Searchers plot is a real fooler! Two cards eerily sink into the pack to sandwich a chosen card. Notice how Pit’s handling is so, so free and hands-off. He merely squares the cards and magic happens. The “attraction” happens in two phases, which is particularly smart.
Odd Men Out: To find two selected cards, the performer changes the pack into all red cards, and then all black cards. The illusion is perfect, and it is accomplished using little more than a two-handed fan and a faro shuffle. You get lots of mileage out of a basic yet subtle method.
Running time: 13 minutes, 56 seconds.
