Instant Flash
By Jolyon Jenkins

This is an effect based on the FISM flash, originally created by John Cornelius (1985). This has long been off the market but there are some other commercial versions of the same effect for sale, mostly selling for about $80. You can make it yourself for much less.

Simply – when the magician performs an effect (e.g. coin vanish, card flourish, production), a burst of bright white light appears from the magician's body (or anywhere else you want). Most of the commercial versions of the effect, including the original, are a bit cumbersome and bulky, but I will show you how to recreate the trick in a much more convenient form, as well as make it capable of radio control so you can be well away from where the flash takes place, if you wish.

Note: As with all the other items in Magi-tronics, this is an e-Book of instructions for building the effect, and not the actual prop itself. You make the device following photos and instructions and get the parts from sources suggested by the author. The purchase of any of these e-Books entitles you to construct one item for your own personal use. If you are interested in acquiring a manufacturing licence please contact the author via the Magic Nook. Copying and resale of any e-Book is prohibited by International Copyright law.
