Shawn Farquhar – Matrixpress
This is a gimmick to perform Shawn’s incredible Matrix routine from his award winning Close Up show. Four coins travel in the blink of an eye. If you have seen Shawn’s lecture you know he has over a dozen other effects that use this same gimmick. As an added bonus you will get four special Poker chips and two photographs so you can perform Photo Finish too! Everything you need to know is explained on a the instructional DVD that is included in this one price! Watch the video of these two great effects.
In the 70 year history of the International Brotherhood of Magicians， no other magician has ever been awarded the first prize in BOTH sleight of Hand and Stage magic. In the 75 year history of the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians only five magicians have ever reached a level of excellence to merit the awarding of the Grand Prix D’Honeur. In fact Shawn is the only magician in the past two decades to be given this honor.After all…it’s his job!
If you can’t laugh at yourself. You’re just not getting the joke!
