Modified Pop Over Production Tutorial

This modification on the Pop Over Production is a quick snappy way to produce a card from the pack. It's visually startling and can create a nice audible sound too! It's a perfect edition to your ace production routine, or it can be used to simply find a spectator's card in an impressive fashion.

Productions of this kind got their start from the top of the deck. J.B. Bobo published his “Pop-Over Card” in The Sphinx, Vol. 45 No. 12, Feb. 1947, p. 368. Bruce Elliot later brought the production to the bottom of the deck with his “Fillip” in Phoenix, No. 188, Oct. 1949, p. 751.
The best-known production in this family is by J. K. Hartman, first described in his Packet Magic, 1972, p. 2. As Hartman notes there, his starting point was Neal Elias's “Another Cutting Discovery” in Ibidem, No. 26, Sep. 1962, p. 9. The difference between the two is that the Elias sleight is done as the halves of the deck are put together, while Hartman's handling occurs with the full deck held in the left hand.
