Captured Review

I purchased "Captured", received it and according to the DVD you should be able to purchase a Polaroid camera at ANY dept store between $25 - $40... not so.

First off no more stores carry that camera and the only one I can find are on e-bay for over $100 and used for about $15... I'm not into used equipment. That's first and foremost.

My other issue, every phone number I called for customer service does not exist. They are either out of order or ring busy. Finally when I found an email that worked, I did get a response back saying that James L. Clark who demoed "Captured", is no longer with Blacks Magic Group. When I responded back, with a thank you, that I still have an issue about the price of the camera, that it was false information, they never responded back to me. There are also no links that work to get to the Forum that they say exists.

Here is the kicker, if you go to Blacks Magic Group website, almost everything is half the price from the normal price... I paid Penguin $28.50 for "Captured" and Blacks Magic claim they are selling it for $9.99, seems a little fishy to me!

Anyway that being said, sounds like they are in the business of screwing both dealers and customers... just my opinion!

CAPTURED is the epitome of visual mental magic.

In this day of digital photography where software can be used to alter images in an instant, CAPTURED uses classic technology to bring a person's thoughts to life on film, right in front of their face.

A familiar object enters play, a deck of cards. It can be any deck at all.

A participant picks a card and retains it for the duration of the presentation, never showing it to the magician until the very end.

The magician brings out a camera and takes a photograph of the participant, which they then hold on to.

As the participant concentrates on the photograph, their thoughts slowly appear in the photo like the image of a ghost captured on unholy ground.

This is an experience so raw and visceral that your participant begins to shake like a Polaroid picture. All they can do is stare in utter disbelief; their mouth wide open like the foundation of their reality has just been cracked by a 2-thousand pound wrecking ball.

This is hard hitting magic.

And best of all, your participant gets to take the experience home with them and remember it forever.

Strong. Dynamic. In-Your-Face magic. CAPTURED.
