Review: Flash Flight by Nicholas Lawrence & Sensor Magic

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”Reviewer: Maarten Bosmans”][vc_column_text]Nicholas Lawrence is an American magician who creates visual close-up magic effects for a New York based company called Sensor Magic. Nicholas has just released a really great visual effect called Flash Flight.

Flash Flight is a real worker, something you can use in your act instantly when you have built the gimmick. You need to practice it like every other effect but because Nicholas explains it really well you can do it after you have watched the training video. It is something visual easy to do and creates almost no pocket space.

It is a new way to do a Torn and Restored effect; what I like is that the handlings are very easy and logical and it is fast. This trick is ideal when you are table hopping since you are always ready and do not need to ditch the extra pieces somewhere. It is very angle proof and easy to do so you can put it directly in your repertoire!

The effect goes like this, the spectator selects a card and signs the face of the card you tear of a corner of a card and place it on your packet. You hand the torn off card to the spectator and the torn off piece visually jumps to their card and restores it.

Over the past few days on Nicholas Lawrence’s Facebook page Patrick, Patrick Kun has used this effect for a torn and restored bill; utilising the same method but different objects:

I love it when magicians are creative like this and do not use only playing cards. You could even do this with business cards or other common objects like magazines this way you leave them with a magical object, which is completely clean.

You can get this effect as a download or with the gimmicks at Sensor Magic for respectively 10 or 20 USD. I strongly suggest you buy the gimmick one, because I know that many magicians own the gimmick and maybe have this but this way you can play with the gimmick more and maybe even create your own ideas with this.

PS: The effect with the gimmick is now 15 USD, it’s reduced for a limited time. Who does not love sales??? 😉 If you love visual close-up magic this effect is for you. 

Magic is our passion but we are not a magic shop ? You can purchase this here!
