The Unseen Prediction: This has been the go to routine used as an opener by David Alvarez for years at each of his table card magic sessions. It is a very easy routine to perform, but at the same time it contains everything and more than you will need to surprise even the most skeptical spectator. (Predictions, apparitions and mind reading)
Staple: Have you ever wanted to pass one solid object through another? Well now this will be possible when you take any card from your favorite deck and staple it neatly; Then you will move the stapled clip across the back of the card with your index finger. As a final touch, the clip will move to the initial point where it was first stapled, making everything completely examinable.
Easy Poker: Probably the easiest poker demo you will ever do! Your spectator mixes the entire deck and, furthermore, does so in small groups to ensure that it cannot be better mixed. Even after all this, it is the spectator himself who deals five cards face down for you and five cards for him. Make him win or lose as you wish, because, as crazy as it may seem, you are always in control!
Truly Knotted: A beautiful and subtle piece of magic with a common shoelace, inspired by the classic rope routine. The fire from a lighter is used to enhance performance, in addition to a bill. Find out where the magic will happen in the end!
ACAAN: David Alvarez took a routine by legendary Japanese magician Ishida Tenkai called "The Mystery of the Turned Cards" and added a secret ingredient to finish it with a clever version of any card at any number. Simply a masterpiece that you will surely want to try!
Bonus: In this section, you will learn a special move with the deck to control one or several cards to the top in an elegant and very deceptive way for the audience.
Smutty: Ok, now for a miracle right under your viewers' noses. A coin that can even be borrowed is completely blackened in a totally impossible way. Additionally, the name of a card previously chosen from the deck by a spectator is drawn between the fire spots on the coin.
The Master Key: Israel Rodriguez offers us this self-working routine with endless possibilities to find a card. In the author's own words, you can always do the end of this routine differently. An excellent opportunity to unleash your imagination!
Triumph DA: Every magician knows who Dai Vernon (The Professor) is and how he popularized one of the gems of card magic called "Triumph". David Alvarez gives us his simplified version here, which you can do whenever you want, anywhere and with any deck, even if it is borrowed.
Miracle Cuts: You'll love playing with the idea of shuffling the deck and allowing your spectator to cut freely, drawing two cards to add their values and form a new value as a result of that sum. Afterwards, your spectator cuts the deck again, this time to form four piles. Miraculously, when you turn over the top card in each pile, they match in value with the previously formed value!
The Light card: A beautiful routine inspired by Chris Perrotta's "Starlight", but kept simple. Here, a card chosen and seen by a spectator is put back into the deck. Then, he materializes his own name on the back of another card, using the flashlight of a cell phone. Subsequently, that card completely transforms into the one chosen from the beginning. This is the kind of thing that makes people question reality!
Bonus: This time, you will get a routine called "Traversed", which does not properly belong to this project. However, it has been attached to it by the artist's own decision, with the aim that you can offer another pleasant and soft effect for your audience to see.
The Trapped Card: A masterful demonstration of sleight of hand by Israel Rodriguez! Literally, give your audience a free choice of a card, lose it back into the deck, and shuffle it. Now, whenever you want, dribble card by card and you will catch a card in the middle of the rest with one of your hands; and yes, that card is the one chosen!
Zodiac: A very interesting proposal that secretly plays with the zodiac signs until the last moment. With this performance, you will be able to make a prediction very easily and end up surprising everyone who sees you.
Deck Decline: This is one of those extremely visual effects that should never be missing from the repertoire of any fanatic card magician! Start performing this easy, surprising and very visual decrease with your favorite deck, which allows you to keep even a single card in your hand if you wish. From here, you decide!
Your Card is in Some Position: A very fun effect using an ancient secret in card magic... guide cards! At the end you will be able to find your audience's card by spelling the same phrase that makes up the name of this routine.
Print: Although it will appear as part of a special bonus, this has so much weight for David Alvarez that you can consider it as the fifth routine in this volume. It is an effect originally released in David Alvarez's "Triple Visions" Masterclass. By executing this, you will be making what David considers one of his best creations when it comes to visual magic.
Return to the Top: A very special routine performed by Israel Rodriguez for more than twenty years, which you can now add to your arsenal. With this one, you can have a spectator take a card from the deck and lose it themselves; and in totally impossible conditions, you will make the card rise to the top of the deck. A real miracle!
Bluff Sandwich: Recreate a card magic classic, such as the Sandwich routines, with this fascinating version delivered by Israel Rodriguez, in which the magic happens instantly and very close to the spectators. The method used to achieve this is very subtle!
ACAAN Super Easy: Another great self-working routine; on this occasion place any card at any number. It's literally as easy to make as the name suggests!
Wealth and Luck: This is one of David Alvarez's most recent creations, in which you can make a bill appear in your own hand and another inside the box of cards previously examined by a spectator, while you tell a story of luck and wealth in which your deck of cards will have a lot to do with. No gimmicks used!
Four Entities: And as if all of the above were not enough, David Alvarez has decided to include his personal blank face card deck routine. One of the best returns you can get with a blank face deck. You'll have to find out for yourself and you won't forgive yourself if you don't!
Bonus: To finish this masterful project in terms of magic, Israel Rodriguez gives lovers of the "Faro Mix" a fabulous idea to do a Sandwich routine using a different application than the usual "Faro Mix".
"Magical Dreamers Project" is simply a masterpiece of professional close-up magic, loaded with routines that will increase your value as a performer. With this project, without a doubt, you will find a lot to enrich your repertoires, whether you are just starting out in this fascinating world of illusion or you are an expert and established professional on the subject. Go ahead and be part of the adventure today too!
