Dave Forrest

Late to discover close-up magic, David first became interested in the art at around 18 years of age. During one of many quests to give up smoking David thought he may have a better chance of kicking the habit if he could occupy his mind and give his hands something to do at the same time. Always having had a passing interest in card tricks, David went to a book shop and purchased Great Card Tricks by Bob Longe. David did manage to stop smoking (briefly!) but also inadvertently gained a far more expensive habit in card magic!

After the inevitable ‘pub gigs’ some real opportunities began to rear their head and soon, in between his real day job as a Graphic Designer, David’s evening’s were mostly spent trying to convince drunks to watch card tricks in return for a miserably poor monetary sum. After being made redundant and staring the prospect of trying to find gainful employment in the face, David boldly announced to his loved ones that he was going to have a go at being a professional magician. It was obvious to David at the time that to the loved ones in question, this was equivalent to announcing that he had decided to become a circus clown! And, unfortunately, they weren’t too far off the mark!

Soon after, David sold the rights to some packet tricks before independently releasing his Card Through Window effect – ‘CTW’. The effect was very well received and its success led to the birth of David’s magic publication business Full 52 Productions. Full 52 continues to thrive to this day and is so far surviving the battle between the written word and DVD! Being something of a neutral in the argument of which is better and seeking to basically hedge his bets, David formed Big Blind Media with Owen Packard late last year after collaboration on David’s acclaimed ‘Trickery’ DVD.

David currently lives in Berkshire with his wife Jo and his cat Buddy.

A corner is cleanly and fairly torn off a selected card. (It really is!) The magician claims that he can restore this card to its former glory with the aid of a very special and ancient and magic-endowed instrument of necromancy. The spectators clutch their handbags to their faces and peek through the gaps in their fingers. The...

Holes

Dave Forrest

Holes by Dave ForrestFollowing on from the success of Ripped & Repaired, Holes is a manuscript from David Forrest featuring three close up miracles with playing cards, each involving holes!
  • On Holemeal - A super visual sandwich! A signed card which was lost into the center of the deck suddenly appears between two blank cards, one of which has a hole in it, as they are waved over the deck. The spectator actually sees their card arrive through the hole! Extremely visual. Easy to do. Resets automatically. Special cards included.
  • Hole’d the phone - A card is freely selected from a genuinely shuffled pack and signed across the...

Double Decker

Dave Forrest

Double Decker by Dave ForrestTwo decks from one case!
"This really is very clever!" - David Regal
Remove two decks of cards from a single case! Double Decker is a manuscript describing the construction of a gimmicked deck that will allow you to produce two decks of cards from a single card box! As always, the instructions are very clear and concise with each step of the process illustrated with cutting edge, stylized diagrams, the likes of which have never been seen before in magic literature. Making the deck is easy, requiring nothing more than a deck of cards, a few household items and an hour of your time.

The possibilities...

AIR Almost Impromptu Riser

Dave Forrest

AIR Almost Impromptu Riser by Dave Forrest
Q. Is it possible to perform the classic Rising Card effect without strings, magnets or elastic and without gaffed cards or gimmicked decks of any kind?

A. It is now! With David Forrest's A.I.R!

Effect: A spectator is asked to choose any card (no force) from a freely shuffled, completely regular deck of cards. The card may be signed if so desired. The card is then lost back into the deck. The magician places the entire deck inside the card case and, holding the deck with one hand, begins to concentrate. Very slowly, one card begins to emerge from the center of the cased deck. Little...

Second Guest

Dave Forrest

Second Guest by Dave ForrestA deck of cards is removed from its case and handed to the spectator for shuffling. It is a genuine, unmarked deck – not gimmicked in any way. The spectator shuffles the cards until he is satisfied and then holds on to them – the performer doesn’t touch them again. Drawing attention to the card case, the performer fairly shows it on all sides pointing out that there are clearly no slits or holes to be found anywhere. You turn your back and instruct the spectator to spread the cards face down, push any card from the spread and without looking at it, seal it in the card case. The rest of...

Autobahn

Dave Forrest

Autobahn by Dave ForrestAn ACAN (Any Card at Any Number) effect specifically designed for the close-up artist.
"An excellent solution to the ACAN plot. It's good to see a method that gets away from memorisation and estimation." - Peter Duffie
What if you could perform the classic ACAN effect while you were strolling or hopping tables and succeed every single time without fail? What if the method was simple, surefire and took up no more pocket space than a single deck of cards? What if this powerhouse effect could be performed with no memory work, no maths and no sleight of hand? What if the spectator could genuinely name...
