Roger Curzon is one of the UK’s real hidden treasures in card magic. A creative mind like no other, Roger over the years has blown the minds of fellow magicians time and time again. Roger is a modest man but is well known to those around him as a true master of his art. This is the first volume of a series of tutorial DVDs where Roger reveals for the first time the true inner workings of his prized repertoire.
Blood on the Tricks was originally a book. Volume One includes performances and clear explanations of wonderful effects that Roger has developed throughout his career. Along with Roger’s original material there is also his own take on some of the classics from past masters of magic! Roger has spent his life developing and mastering these routines and they are all explained here to make it easy for you!
This DVD aswell as Roger’s Miracle Signed Card in Envelope was an instant hit at this years Blackpool Magic Convention 2011.
You will learn:
Cutting the Kings
A remarkable way of cutting to the kings when the cards are thoroughly shuffled in a topsy-turvey fashion some face up and some face down with a triple surprise finish!
Rise Rise Rise
This trick is worth the price of the DVD alone and was a hit at the Blackpool Magic Convention 2011 it fooled every magician that watched us demo it! A chosen card is placed in the deck and a coin is signed and placed on a face up deck on an indifferent card. The deck is covered by the hands for a split second and instantly the card underneath the coin changes to the selected card. This also has a surpise finish!
Curzons Convincing Control
A really useful and clever way to control a card to the bottom of the deck while convincing the spectator that it has definitely gone in the center as they push the card in themselves!
A super routine whereby a chosen card multiplys itself four times and then all four cards instantly change to the four aces!
Another great ace routine where a chosen card vanishes from the specatators own hands while also being trapped by the four aces only to reappear in the deck reversed!
A card is taken out of the a red pack as a prediction which is sandwiched in between two blue backed Jokers. A spectator names ANY card only to find it is the one between the jokers!
Roger explains his amazing second deal in detail!
Pseudo Center Deal Routine
Roger explains how to apparently deal the aces from the center of the pack! If you want to do gambling exposes then you must learn this, you will love it!
Deck Reverse Supreme
Most people think that magicians sometimes reverse one card in a deck but Roger proves that actually a deck actually reverses itself around a card! This is really visual!
Coincidence in Millions
8 cards used, numbered Ace through to Eight. The spectator puts the cards into a random order. Roger then takes a calculator and asks spectator 1 to type in any 6 digit number and then askes spectator 2 to multiply it by any 4 digit number they think of. When the number is read out it matches the order the cards are in! Literally a coincidence in millions!
Wipe Out Queens Routine
A beautiful and complete routine where Roger finds the queens in some amazingly novel ways! A routine worth learning! (Ed – we use this trick all the time and the spectators just love it!)
Erdnase/ Miller Colour Change
You may have seen magicians change a card by swiping their hands over a deck, Roger shows you how to change two cards at the same time… just beautiful to watch!
Vernon’s Cutting the Aces
Roger’s handling a great gambling classic of magic!
Thanks to Vernon 4 Ace Production
A super visual way to cut to the aces from a shuffled deck in an incredibly fast four way split!
