Mystery Hole by Masuda(c. 2003) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Nearly all of Masuda’s effects are clever, but not all of them are going to be performed particularly in a walk-around setting. Not only is this one going to be performed, it can be performed in a walk-around setting because there is no reset.
It looks as clean as the demo – you show a photo of a wine bottle and a black dot on your finger. You place the dot on the photo and it suddenly starts moving around on its own, and you can even see your finger beneath the photo thanks to the hole you’ve just placed on it. Then you can just as easily pull the hole from the photo and the hole is once again on your finger and the photo can be shown cleanly on both sides. It does take a little practice to get the timing right, but once you have it down you have a mini-miracle that works every time!
Effect: The magician shows a picture of a wine bottle and a glass. He introduces a piece of black paper and a hole punch. Then he punches a hole in the paper. The Magician picks up a small circular piece dropped from the hole punch and explains that it looks like a real hole when it is placed on the photograph. When the magician makes a magical gesture, the circular piece begins to move by itself across the picture.
The magician waves his/her finger under the photo to show that the small piece of paper has turned into a real hole in the photo. Spectators can see his finger through the hole. The magician drags the hole to the edge of the picture and picks it off. The magician shows both sides of the photo to prove there is nothing irregular about the picture.
