Mind-reading routines are as old as magic itself. While there is no need to fix something that isn't broken, you can always push boundaries. That is exactly what Victor Sanz has done with his very own variation of an age-old classic. Introducing the Self-Flipping Notepad!
Have your spectator write down the name of a deceased celebrity on your notepad, and use your mind-reading ability to tell them which person's name they wrote down. The spectator is stunned. Then contact that celebrity from beyond the grave, and get this other-wordly entity to flip through the notepad right to their name! The spectator's jaw will drop - be prepared for screams!
An impactful routine that will make any crowd flip out with awe!
How accurate is the ad copy? No deception
What's in the box?
1 instructional DVD
1 notebook (you need to prep it)
Key points: None of that "special stuff" usually involved with haunted pack effects!
How are the production values: Sans Minds always makes great DVDs, lots of angles, well mic’d. The background music is a little annoying, but not too distracting.
Is it well made: This is a standard “cheap” notebook that you prepare yourself with the tutorial.
Is it well taught: Taught by “Super Dave” – has both a few live action performances on the street and then Super Dave takes you back to the studio.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" All you need is the notepad, no extras are needed.
Does it "play big?" Mentalism and haunted tricks have great potential if played well.
Difficulty / Skill level required: very easy
How much arts and crafts are involved? Nothing too difficult could be done in 20 minutes with typical household materials.
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Very easily.
Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.

My thoughts I actually like this idea “MORE” as a peek device and NOT as a haunted pack trick.
