This is the latest revolution of Jim’s smashingly successful “Cinema Verite” effect. The appearance of being able to actually read someone’s mind. I asked Jim to give me the highlights and he replied:
Mark, yes it’s exactly the same “effect” as Cinema Verite , but with different cards and films. I completely redesigned the backs to modernize and update them, and used all-time most popular films. I also added a second effect and completely rewrote the instruction file with numerous additions and updates. The case is a different color and bit larger (to hold both Cinema Verite and Classic Film Verite card sets in case someone wants to carry both).
The appearance of being able to actually read someone’s mind.
EFFECT: Have your audience pass around a set of cards with 32 different classic film posters. The set includes all-time “most popular” films like Gone With the Wind, The Godfather, Star Wars, The Wizard of Oz, and Pulp Fiction. Each card has a film poster on the front and a list of films from the set on the back.You have no idea who has which film poster. Have anyone choose one and think about the title. They read the names of the films from their card, and you tell them exactly which film they are thinking of. In addition, you tell them the exact number of film critics who voted for that film out of all films.
Repeat the effects with anyone else. They think of a film and read the same list of titles. You always know which film your spectator is thinking of and the unique number of votes the list got.
- An amazing secret, so easy you will be doing it in minutes.
- No crib sheets.
- The spectator can read the list in any order.
- Nothing to memorize.
- Nothing extra to carry.
- Use just the 32 postcards.
- Extra-thick, heavy stock, full color, glossy varnish, rounded corners.
- Complete with a sturdy snap-closure carrying case.
Use all 32 cards or just slip ten or twelve into your pocket and still perform it exactly the same way. Combine this card set with Cinema Verite and use 64 different film cards. Classic Film Verite has all different films and cards including very well-known films like The Princess Bride, Toy Story, Casablanca, Singin‘ In the Rain, Titanic, and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Newly added – not one, but TWO incredible effects. Reveal their thought-of film title and a unique film critic number. Perform it any time, anywhere with anyone who can read and think. Good for close-up or a full auditorium. Do it over and over with one spectator, or thirty times with thirty different spectators. No one will fathom the secret. Like Cinema Verite, it is incredibly easy.
