Nathan will teach effects ideas from his working repertoire including these highlights
Cashing In--Cash in your Casino Chips for real money instantly! Features a bare hand production that will fool them all.
Spirit Force---A card is freely selected by the spectator and returned to the deck. Then the deck is placed face up on the table and an object like a knife or fork slowly begins to move and points to the selected card. This Al Baker inspired effect is very powerful.
Will The Kort Please Rise--A stand up version of Milt Korts classic coins through table routine. Kranzo adds an extra element that looks like real magic.
Hot Sauce Production--In a flash of fire you produce a package of hot sauce. When you open the hot sauce, smoke rolls out. VISUAL!! A must for restaurant work.
Kranzo on The Rising Card--Nathan will teach two VERY POWERFUL and practical techniques to perform the classic Rising Card effect. This effect has long been recognized as one the strongest effects possible with a deck of cards. Nathan has performed dozens of versions over the years and will share with you his thoughts, finesse, and pet handlings for this effect.
Nathans handling of Al Bakers Haunted Pack--The perfect closer! Nathan will teach an easy and practical method that you can perform anytime anywhere. Nathan will also teach you how to perform this effect ON A SPECTARS HAND. You will WANT to perform this after watching Nathan do this.
