Destiny - it´s your choice (Performance Rights, explanation DVD and Download)

Destiny - It´s your choice - DVD and digital download combination

 Does destiny exists?

It allways ends the other way. This is a "law of nature". With Destiny - It´s your choice you deal in a funny, astonishing and surprising way with this topic in your parlour or stage show.




A destiny card is freely choosen and drawn in a piece of paper. The spectator shuffles his card into the deck by himself.

Then it follows a funny procedure of elemination. The spectator throws several times half of the cards into the air. 

The raining cards are funny and create a "big picture" on stage.

At the end 2-3 cards are left from which the spectator clearly selects one card (no classic equivoque) . Now everybody expects the previous selected card (since you are a magician and you know how you can do something like this)

But life is full of surprise - it´s a totally different card. Of course - because all the spectators decisions where totally free.

But at the end everything comes the other way. Without having touched the paper now it shows the last card you hold in your hands.

- the paper stays visible the whole time - no switch

- the elemination process is extremly fair

- the raining cards are creating a beautyfull picture and fill the stage

- at the end there is a full deck of unprepared cards on the floor

- the story "destiny" gives you many possipilities for your story and is interesting to everybody.

Information on shipping costs / delivery time

The shipping costs are calculated according to weight of the total shipment and of course the destination country,
You will see the correct calculated shipping costs displayed in the shopping cart and the final order overview.

I ship usually 1x per week, since I'm primarily a working professional magician and not a magic dealer. So in theworst case I need 7 days before I can ship your order.  I hope you understand that.

The shipments within Germany I send by registered mail (up to 2 kg) or DHL (2 kg)

I ship internationally as an enrollment letter (up to 2x2 kg - which is the fastest). If the total weight of your shipment is between 2kg and 4kg I split the order in two parts. From 4kg this no longer makes sense and I send it as a DHL package.
Unfortunately, the running times of international packages (more than 4kg) are about 14 days.

Once your shipment is in the mail, you will receive a tracking No. and a link where you can "approximately" track your shipment. Unfortunately, the German Post is not that exact and up to date as UPS.

"Does destiny exist? It always ends the other way. This is a 'law of nature'. With Destiny - It's your choice you tackle this topic in a funny, astonishing and surprising way, in your parlour or stage show. A Destiny Card is freely chosen and drawn on a piece of paper. The spectator shuffles his card into the deck. Then she throws half of the cards into the air, several times, until just one card is left... but is this the Destiny Card? Life is full of surprises - and at the end of this routine there's a big surprise. This is the first routine by Axel Hecklau that comes as a DVD and as a Digital Download. Packs small - plays big! Fully detailed explanation. English/German. Download or DVD + Download."

If you haven't seen the effect yet I'd suggest watching the demonstration first:

Axel kindly sent through a DVD for review. As with everything Axel sells it's very well produced and runs for nearly one hour covering every possible detail.

Two things really appealed to me about this routine: first the subject itself, 'destiny', which is something you can really play with, with your audience - it's something we've all pondered over and it will engage an audience. Secondly, as a magician, I really appreciate the fact that Axel's magic works! It's 100% practical. As ever, his attention to detail means that you, the performer, can relax and not worry about the method (which incidentally is both easy to do and very clever), and instead concentrate on your presentation.

There are a few changes I'd make though. My final 'prediction' would be drawn with the same Sharpie that the original was drawn in, in other words it would also be in black, and hand drawn (not red, not too neat), to make it more spontaneous, more natural, forgoing the magical worth of the colour contrast in favour of it looking more real... and I'd do away with the pre-printed playing card outline as well - it's not needed and looked a little 'magic propy' to me.

I'd strip this one back a little - leaving nothing but an impossible outcome to a fun routine.

Big recommendation for this one. Vorsprung durch Technik - again!
