Mathieu Bich and Theory 11
A restoration. A reparation. A transformation.
Just when you think the effect is over-- it hasn't even begun. A signature effect of International FISM winner Mathieu Bich for half a decade, this is a trick that defines visual magic. The restoration is a masterpiece of aesthetic perfection and technical fluidity. But what happens next will turn your mind inside out.
The motions are slow, methodical, logical, and smooth. If you were to take a card, rip it, and then restore it piece by piece-- this is EXACTLY what it would look like. Taught and performed by Chris Kenner in Las Vegas.
We first saw TnR in action months ago with a grainy, dark webcam video shot by Mathieu Bich. It looked like a clip from the Blair Witch Project. But instead of being filmed in the woods, it was Mathieu's living room. And there were no ghosts. Whatever, you get the point.
The video was clear enough to see the effect. We saw it. And our jaws dropped.
The effect starts off like any other torn and restored card effect. But as it progresses, it gets more and more insane. Each piece is shown SO fairly before it is visibly, simply, beautifully restored. There's not a single funny move in the entire routine.
85 minute DVD shot in High Definition with intricate instruction by Chris Kenner, creator of the legendary Torn Asunder card restoration.
