Tom Elderfield is known as one of the first magicians to use the Instagram platform to show off his new creative work. From doing this Tom has gained a reputation for creating highly visual and crazy gimmicks with everyday objects. Already Tom has created tricks for some of the biggest TV magicians, traveled the globe showing his magic, and had multiple successful releases whilst still only being a teenager. For the first time, Tom has agreed to explain some of his fun and visual gimmicks that have never been taught before whilst keeping the lecture engaging with his youthful and fun performance style. A lecture not to be missed! Here’s what you’ll learn:
Listen Up: Borrowed headphones impossibly suspend up in the air. Take a ring off and put it around the headphones to prove no threads, the headphones drop on command and is instantly handed out.
Crossed Coffee: Take a Starbucks cup and mark an X in one of the boxes and it visually jumps up and down the boxes.
Color Changing Straw: Easy to make and do. Take a straw and visually change its color all the way around the straw. The straw can then be used.
Self Wrapping Wrap: I make myself some lunch mid lecture. A wrap. Then on the command, the wrap starts to roll itself up by itself and is then eaten.
Linking Cups: Take your mug and borrow a mug, visually and impossibly link and unlink the 2 mugs.
Double Take: A prediction of a card and the spectator is taken on their phone. A card is then picked and the prediction is wrong. The picture on their phone has then changed to match the card they picked. End clean.
Squish Box: As the box is being put away, it takes up too much space, the box then quickly for a short moment squishes down to half its size with the cards inside. Then stretched back out and the cards are used.
Tab Nation: Cool card box utility. An ink change, TNR and is very clean and easy on the opening tab of the box.
Mini Box Book Test: Read the back of the box, pick a word and remember it. Magician then crosses out one word. This then matches the word that was thought off.
