Stand-Up Elmsley

Discussion in 'Magic Forum' started by It's Magic Sam, Apr 14, 2020.

  1. I am converting a close-up effect to a larger audience. One sleight used is an Elmsley count. I have been working on the count with my hands up for all to see. So far, so good, but I can't be the only one to try this. Can anyone point me to published instructions for this version of the Elmsley?
  2. mertesen and It's Magic Sam like this.
  3. Thanks for the link. The pamphlet was interesting. I have a jumbo deck somewhere, need to dig it out and try one of the tricks.
    For my current project, the instructions were too brief. I wish I could have seen the lecture that went with these notes. Too bad Mr. Castle was pre-YouTube, no videos available. You hinted at the best tip from the notes, do the count horizontally or vertically. This effect is a repeat count. I think varying the orientation a couple times is more deceptive and it works well with my 'thought' script.
    This was my first visit to the lybrary. I added it to my research sites, thanks again.
    And Wow, I looked at some videos of So Sato. That book goes on the wish list.
