The Journey (DVD and Gimmick) by Matt Johnson - DVD
- Send to a Friend
A single deck of cards is sitting on the table. A spectator is asked to name a card; they are then asked to name a number from 1 to 52. The cards are removed at fingertips from the box and handed to the spectator.
One by one the cards are counted down to the spectators chosen number. When the card at the chosen number is turned over it is the spectators freely chosen card!
READ THAT AGAIN!
Every word that you just read is true. Nothing added or taken away. Nothing but the single deck of cards on the table!
Not only that, when the effect is over the deck is instantly reset and ready to go again for your next performance with a completely different card and number.
The Journey represents 6 years of Matt Johnson's life in one amazing instructional DVD. You will be taken step by step through multiple versions of arguably one of the most talked about effects in the world of magic.
You will receive custom gimmicks to create your very own Journey deck. You will also learn how to perform The Journey any time and anywhere with a borrowed and shuffled deck!
As an added bonus, you will find Matt's original release from 2011 "ACAAN" included on the DVD along with bonus handling tips and suggestions.
The entire DVD was shot on location in Blackpool, England at the world's largest magic convention where Matt fooled professional magicians with The Journey. Every performance and mind blowing reaction is shown in full and unedited.
If you have been searching for the ultimate version of ACAAN look no further. Join Matt Johnson in one of his most anticipated releases to date and get ready to take The Journey.

Five methods are taught on the dvd one of which can be with a borrowed deck, The dvd is well produced and filmed and demoed at Blackpool 2016. The principles are very easy to understand and beginners would take a lot from this but I would say intermediate skill is needed and some comfort performing, as there is some counting involved while you deliver your performance. However it is simple and you don't have any memory work or lengthy calculations.
Advantages: Five methods taught from impromptu borrowed deck to gaffed to the hilt. I'd say these could be performed seated or stand but ideally seated. The gaffed versions can be down by the spectator and the impromptu versiononly uses one sleight and the angles are manageable up to 180 when seated.
