This also includes Future Test 2020
and Future Test 2022
. This routine can also be performed in a virtual show over Skype, Zoom, Instragram Live, Facebook Live or even a basic one to one video call.
Future Test is a 'packs small plays big' kind of effect. Actually packs very small in your wallet and plays very big to a full room or in a virtual show or even over a video call. This effect is done on the back of your business card which you can later leave with the participant as a souvenir or send over to the participant's phone as a virtual image as a 'digital souvenir'.
The performer starts by asking the participant "Do you like to know how successful you will be in 2021?" and performs the Future Test. Essentially the performer makes some predictions (all good ones) about the participant for the year 2021 (or 2020 or 2022, as the case maybe) and proves that they are all accurate. The participant will be amazed. Not only will she keep your business card as a lucky souvenir for a long time but is likely to contact you again soon during 2021.
The final objective of the routine is to leave the participant with a good feeling and positive expectations about 2021 and in the process impart hope and confidence about the future. Future Test 2021 can also be taken down the Gospel Magic route, if you want. Those ideas are included.
No sleights, no preshow and no stooges. No equivoque, no dual reality, no instant stooges. Your business card can be openly handled and shown before, during and after the performance. The Future Test 2021 is fully self working.
Very simple and easy to learn and perform. But the structure and presentation of the routine creates a long lasting impact. It is very flexible in that you can make it as short or as long you want it to be. And right from the opening line, the performer is in total control. Not just 2021, what you need to perform for 2020 and 2022 is also included.
A novel approach to a classic effect using a unique combination of classic principles. This is really a 100$ idea being released as a 3$ surprise, given the present global situation.
