Identity (With Gimmicks) Review

Wow, the effects I've reviewed lately have been really fantastic and Richard Sanders' IDENTITY is no exception. I'm sure you've seen the video demonstration and read the effect, so I won't bore you.

The claims are true; you find out the spectator's name during a "non-moment" well before you reveal it on the card later. Many, including myself, were skeptical about this part, but I can assure you, it can be done (it's as bold as Dunninger's ploy). And yes, the card can be examined and given away at the end. What Sanders has done here has combined standard sleights with a marker technique and made this come to life. If you've seen the video demo, you won't be surprised that it gets that big of reaction after you watch the explanation.

Sanders goes into a lot of detail and shows four different versions of the effect. The quality is top-notch and the included gimmick is just perfect. Many single item effects that are released on DVD are pipe dreams that barely warrant a mention in the back of a set of lecture notes or magazine, but IDENTITY is worth every penny. Perfect this and all your "David Blaine Freak Out" wet dreams will come true.

Walk up someone you've never met and have a card chosen, marked and shuffled into the deck. Next, you draw a series of random marks on the back of any indifferent card. Those marks VISIBLY JUMP from card to card, finally VANISHING COMPLETELY. The deck is slowly spread to reveal the marks on the back of one card...the spectator's signed selection.

One last incredible kicker... you offer the card to the spectator as a souvenir. In order to personalize shake the card...and get ready for this...THE MARKS ON THE BACK OF THE CARD VISUALLY REFORM INTO THE SPECTATOR'S VERY OWN NAME!
