Product Description

Paul Harris is perhaps the single most creative force magic has ever had to offer. Known for his offbeat effects, natural presentation, and deceptive methods, Paul has been on the cutting edge of close-up magic for over two decades. On this DVD you will be treated to nine astonishing "pieces of strange to unleash the moment".

DVD Contents:
  • Unshuffling Rebecca - An in-the-hands, self-working Triumph. Triumph's next evolution. No moves!
  • Backlash - A no-palming signed card to pocket; with an outrageous kicker!
  • Angel Case - A diabolical utility item designed to switch small objects. Perfect for spirit writing!
  • Zen & The Art of Boomerang - Toss a card high in the air, catch it in the deck and it splits its mate!
  • Flesh - Pieces of a toothpick magically and visually jump from hand to hand!
  • Impromptu Nightshades - Paul's classic Nightshades on the fly; borrow a buck and watch George flip his shades!
  • Buck Naked - What a scam! One of the greatest bill swindles ever conceived!
  • The Shape of Astonishment - You have to see it to believe it; the imprint of a quarter in a piece of foil changes instantly from heads to tails! This will really kick you.
  • Fizz Master - Cause the carbonation to travel from one soft drink to another!
