Pop’s Magic releases Rising Card Video

rising card 1

This is thirty minute downloadable video by Pop Haydn on the use of the “Thin-Model Rising Card Deck.” This is Barry M. Gibbs refinement of the Devano Rising Cards first published in 1948. These decks are available from various manufacturers as “The Rising Card Deck.”

It is one of the most convincing and powerful versions of this classic effect, and the method is practical and not difficult to perform.

The instructions that come with this deck are always very limited and don’t reflect the thought and full use of the technical advances in this method.

Most magicians never really get the full use and power out of this wonderful item.

On this video Pop teaches his deck switch and how he presents the rise in the spectator’s hand both in walkaround and in formal close up situations.

He also explains how to tighten and refresh the deck so that it stays in like new condition.

He teaches how to handle the deck so that it can be fanned, and so that the performer can use the Multiple Swing Cut, Hindu Shuffle, and other natural looking moves with this mechanical deck.

There is a huge difference between magic taken “Off the Shelf” and how that same magic looks in the hands of an expert.

Pop Haydn will turn your performance of this classic into real amazement and astonishment for your audiences.

This is a downloadable video. This purchase does not include the Rising Card Deck.

New Pop Haydn Videos Coming Out!

We will be shooting some new teaching videos in the next two weeks! We are very excited!

The videos will include “Phoenix Aces”, “Multiplying Balls for the Street,” and my “Shell Game” routine. These will teach all the moves, patter, and presentational details of each routine. These routines are extremely commercial and strong, and have been an important part of my performing repertoire for many years. These videos will be available before the end of September, and maybe even sooner. They will be $25 at that time, but if you pre-order, you can save $5.00, and be the first to receive the DVD.
