Being a huge fan of the classic 'rising card' effect, Dave asked himself the following question: "Is it possible to cause a freely selected and signed card to rise from the centre of a regular deck of cards that is locked inside the card case?"
The answer is YES! The answer is AIR!
Any card is freely selected from the deck. The card is signed before being lost back into the pack. The pack is placed into the box and you focus your attention on the top of the cased deck. Slowly and eerily, a card is seen to rise from the center for well over half its length. That card is the signed card. It may be removed by the spectator who may also examine the entire deck - there is nothing to find!
Things to remember:
- The deck is 100% regular!
- The rise is under your complete control!
- The card and the deck can be removed and examined by the spectator!
"Just when you think Dave has managed to train a little gremlin to sit inside a card case and do his bidding he slaps you in the face with a super simple method to a HIGHLY VISUAL effect. So clean, so simple and all the while so effective. Bravo!" - Alan Rorrison
With just one minute of simple preparation of the card case, you can cause any card to rise from the centre of a regular deck of cards! The box appears regular and can still be used as normal. The preparation of the box has been simplified since AIR was first released as an ebook - it's now even easier to have the power of the rising card at your fingertips - anytime, anywhere!
Aces On Air - A four Ace discovery where each Ace rises from the pack in a different way each time! By purchasing AIR you'll also learn this incredible Ace routine that blows the dust off some old school slight of hand card rises! This routine is such a HUGE crowd pleaser, you just won't believe it. In 'Aces On Air' you discover the four Aces by having them rise out of the deck, one by one, each rise more impossible than the last! Dave will teach you all the handling details of three classic rises used in the routine so even if you're performing without your 'AIR' case you can still astonish people by causing cards to rise from the pack!
[Dave released AIR earlier as PDF. The PDF does not include the "Aces on Air" routine and Dave has since then further improved the gimmick. But if you prefer to read rather than watch a video and if you are mainly interested in the basic idea the PDF will be a good alternative.]
