TNT by Luke Oseland
One card is shown, signed, torn and restored… in the most impossible way.
There are a million and one ‘Torn and Restored’ card effects out there, but not many of them, if any, start with one card and end with an inspectable, signed impossible object that you give to your spectator.
TNT, or Torn ‘n’ Transformed is Luke’s creative answer to one of magic’s most impressive plots – Tearing & restoring a card.
For those that don’t know Luke as a creator, we’ve had our eye on him for many years. He didn’t know it back then, but we knew he had the potential for greatness.
His gimmicks are inventive, flawless and can often be adapted to many other things.
Despite being only 17, you can find his name amongst the ‘Magic Consultant’ credits in Dynamo’s newest TV special. Trust us when we say, this guy knows visual magic.
For TNT, we opened the trailer with a full restoration of this signed card. As magicians, we can all appreciate the visual, the instant restoration and the motivated clean-up.
What you see is what you get.
The gimmick is engineered in such a way that the single, signed card NEVER leaves your audience’s sight during performance.
It starts as one signed card and ends as one transformed, signed card.
This can then be immediately handed out to your spectator upon restoring… Making it remarkable.
Relatively easy to make at home, TNT can be prepared ahead of time and added to your deck in an instant.
