How to do the Double Lift. Expert tuition on the most important technique in card magic.
The Double Lift is regarded as the core essential technique in all of card magic. The Double Lift is simply turning over two playing cards whilst giving the impression that you are holding just a single playing card.
Once magicians decide to move past self working card magic tricks, the Double Lift is the first card magic technique we recommend that magicians study. Many magicians ONLY use the Double Lift in the majority of card magic tricks they perform for the public.
One of the biggest problems many magicians struggle with, is a perfect technique for their Double Lift. It is often performed clumsily, and in the exact same manner as it was first learnt. Indeed, many magicians spend a lifetime sticking to their initial method, and fail to take advantage of the numerous variations and context specific variants that exist.
On the Double Lift Project you will find thorough, easy to understand, indepth teaching on fourteen different double lifts. With these moves in your arsenal you will be ready to perform a double lift regardless of the situation. From the top of the deck, the middle of the deck, from a packet of cards – you name it. You will also have the skills to ‘get ready’ for your double lift using a host of methods - thumb count (at the front or rear of the deck), a pinkie count, pushover and more. Then once you progress further into the DVD Liam will even teach you how to do triple, quadruple (or MORE) turnovers.
Make no mistake – there are a lot of techniques, tips and skills to learn and enjoy!
