Review: Project ULTIMA by Andrew Herring and Feel Astonished LIVE – Video and eBook Combo DOWNLOAD

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”Reviewer: Michael Siegel”][vc_column_text]Feel Astonished Live is a production company that produces magic videos for magicians that was started by Kyle Grey, Andrew Herring and Gareth Davis. Project Ultima by Andrew Herring is the first magic DVD produced by Feel Astonished Live.

Project Ultima is a magnificently produced DVD that has raised the standards of HD quality magic DVDs. Project Ultima beautifully showcases the incredible skill of Andrew Herring, a master card specialist, performing and explaining an array of extraordinary feats of card magic, card techniques, card controls, and flourishes.

The list of effects, techniques and flourishes are as follows:

Ultima Aces

This is a beautiful 4 aces production from a shuffled deck. The card flourishes used to produce the 4 aces from a shuffled deck and their display are truly astonishing. You do not need to perform the more challenging card flourishes beforehand as the actual mechanics to produce the 4 aces are relatively easy. It is a beautiful production and a terrific opener to display your card handling.

Glimmer Principle

This is a wonderful multiuse utility card technique used to control and switch cards.  It is a truly versatile technique that can be used in an endless number of effects and routines. Within the generic Glimmer principle, Andrew Herring teaches the Glimmer Control, The Glimmer Switch and The Glimmer Change. These practical techniques are truly real world and practical applications that will greatly enhance any routines that require card controls, switches and/or changes. They do require a good amount of practice to perform smoothly, but certainly within the range of any magician who has handled a deck of cards card magicians. The most difficult technique is the Glimmer Multiple Selection Control where you can control 4 cards in an extremely convincingly manner. The effects and techniques are simply marvelous. The Glimmer Principle and its various applications are worth three times the price of the DVD.

The Ninja Grab

I have never seen this type of effect before. This is a superb ending to any type of single card routine. It will take practice to perform correctly but it is worth putting in the time. Your ability to “grab” the single card from the deck will give you the appearance of having super “ninja” skills.

Are You Sure?

A very powerful card change that happens in the spectator’s hands. It is a very strong effect.


A very visual color change that uses your business card.

In addition to these incredible techniques, Andrew Herring also provides an in depth introduction to his original card cut system called the OHUH Project. It is a system of amazing card flourishes and unbelievable false cuts. This “system” is very original and practical. It will take time to master, but once you do, you will have an incredible weapon at your disposal to make your audience really believe that the deck is fairly and totally cut and mixed when in fact it is not.

The specific cuts and flourishes Andrew goes into are:

Aerial Cut


Grip Flip



The Infinite Twirl (extra bonus)


Andrew Herring is a true master of card flourishes and techniques. It is amazing just to see him perform. While you will need a great deal practice to perform a lot these flourishes like Andrew does, every card magician from beginner to advanced will learn a lot from this DVD.

The teaching is amazingly in-depth and all of the moves and handlings are shown in HD with multiple angles so that you will learn these moves. Andrew Herring and Feel Astonished Live have set a new standard for magic DVDs.

If you want to learn some incredible, practical, and unique card magic and techniques or just want to watch a master card technician, get this DVD. I look forward in Fell Astonished Live next production. Highly recommend.
