"Bottle Production" is a signed card to bottle taught by Robson, a stunning routine. However, Robson teaches the bottle production, which is based on a well known one, but doesn’t show you Etiene Pradier's method (credited) for getting the signed card into the bottle. This workings can be found on Pradier's excellent DVD, "Professional Repertoire of Etienne Pradier" (click here to read my review).
There's a strong transposition effect called "Transpo." Here, a spectator's selected card changes places with a card that you are holding. However, this is very similar to the transposition effect taught on the first DVD.
The spectator holds these four cards securely while you hold the remaining four cards. You cause one card to pass through the spectator's hand because at the end, you’re holding the selected card, which has vanished from the spectator’s packet.
A trick also taught on his "Mix 'N Mingle" DVD is Shaun McCree's "Razor Sharp" (click here to read my review). This is McCree's version of a great Himber effect. Here a card is selected and mixed back into the deck, which is placed into its card box. The magician lets spectators select a razor blade that is placed into the card box.
The card box is shaken and when the contents are dumped out, the cards are cut into tiny pieces with one exception, the spectator's card. I've performed this one and it gets great reactions.
There's nothing that can replace hard-earned experience.
