Wreck by Daniel Madison
Wreck The Deck.
Wreck is and always has been my ultimate closing effect. I always love to leave the participant with something that they can take away to show people and talk about and this is as perfect as a souvenir can be.
I spend my time showing the participant and spectators card tricks from my repertoire, then to close, I take the deck that has been in use the whole time and rip it clean in half, or only half way, and if that's not enough madness, I then allow the participant to discover their freely selected and signed card completely in tact amongst the wreck.
I have developed this effect over the past 7 years and discovered a few powerful variations and alternative handling techniques which allow you to appear to rip a deck of cards with almost no effort at all.
This half-hour video covers everything, from the construction and sleights to the performance and psychology of the effect, by the end of the video, you'll be able to create a perfect moment of magic.
I am Daniel Madison. This is Wreck.
