This ebook is an in depth exploration of a premise that has captured Christopher's imagination for many years. In 2010 Christopher shared his effect Drop Card; a routine in which one spectator thinks of a playing card and focuses. The other finds the spectators card with their eyes closed. This routine is still something he perform's and loves.
Now, In 2016, Christopher offers his full body of work on this effect. Tipping secrets he has never shared before. Nothing is held back. This is a professional performance piece that will fit right into your show. You will learn his current and complete handling of his effect 'Drop Card', using one spectator, a personal thought, a logical framing and two amazing revelations. This alone is a full and professional performance piece.
You will also learn about Chris' 'Billet Elimination Justification' - a subtle yet useful idea that Chris put's into action every time he works professionally.
Also included are many strong variations of Drop Card to suit various environments and conditions. From stage, to parlour and even casual performance settings.
[Note: If you want to perform this exactly as Chris does you will need John Riggs' 'Beautiful Butterfly' impression pad, and the Phoenix 'Alpha Deck' or any other marked alphabet deck.]
Luke Jermay, Marco Fida and Marc Paul also give fantastic contributions to this volume.
Drop Card - The Complete Work is a professionally formatted ebook that teaches Drop Card the way Christopher really does it at every Mentalism show he does. Includes full scripting, in depth tuition and many bonuses.
