    Help making a magic charity

    So I am currently in high school and wanted to create my own extracurricular activity.

    My effect, Torta

    This was an idea I stumbled on by accident, but made the best of it. Plot isn't orginal, however I think the method and handling are.

    My effect, Hysteria

    My take on one of my favorite plots of close-up magic. With this plot, I notices a lot of weaknesses, so I tried to take most of those out. This can be done seated or standing up, and has other handling methods. (References cited as always)

    My effect, Phantom Frog

    Completely impromptu, angleproof, no gimmicks, duplicates, just sleigh of hand. Let me know what you think,(yes, my references are cited):

    My effect, Stone Cold Stunner

    Just want to know what you guys think,(don't worry, my references are cited in the description box):

    Check Out my effect: Xenon Kings

    I know the plot isn't original, however my method is completely impromptu, no duplicates, gimmicks, or anything. This can be done with a deck borrowed and shuffled from the spectator. Let me know what you guys think, if it fools you,(yes, even if only the first time), let me know. Thanks!

    One Man's Treasure - Another Man's Trash

    Taking a break from something like magic can have its silver linings. For instance, you get some fresh perspective on things that are often taken for granted. I was watching the trailer to an effect the other day, and one of the selling points of the effect was that you could offer the...
