Springboard - The History & Inspiration
Posted on 22 May 2014
Early in 2012 I had the good fortune to meet up with a Mentalist by the name of Peter Turner. During our time together he demonstrated an impressive spectator as mindreader routine in which he taught the audience how to identify which card another spectator was merely thinking of.
Having not tipped the full method to me at that time I decided to come up with my own variation which could be performed on the spot with any card from a borrowed deck.
The results of my endeavour have until recently only been shared with a select few. The feedback I received was very positive and all indications were that this was a rather new principle within the realms of mentalism.
Further investigation highlighted two notable performers who have independently developed similar ideas.
The first is Andrew Gerard who will be releasing his thoughts on his up and coming DVD project titled “Secrets”.
I’ve also been informed that Phil Smiff has an excellent effect in his first book titled “Mitox” which shares some similar thinking.
After sharing my thoughts with Rus Andrews he developed a great handling which he has now released under the title “Also Known As”. Those interested in this plot would do well to pick this up too!
