DAT Challenge Duplication is a Drawing Duplication from the young, creative and mature mind of Jacob M. Smith.
An answer to creating a fun, engaging and remarkable challenge of mind reading for our audiences. It can be tongue and cheek or be played absolutely serious.
Imagine your audience electing a skeptic to oversee your experiment and making them begin to question their skepticism in front of everyone’s eyes in real time. Everyone cheers and applauds as they chip away at their skepticism in real time, with the elected skeptic verifying everything is fair as you replicate a memory an audience member apparently had of their choosing is thinking of.
Next you replicate the drawing they have in mind from their memory with a big visual drawing duplication.
Finally, you end by going one step above the final challenge posed to you and everyone, including your skeptic, is blown away by you going beyond what they could have ever imagined!
Does it require dexterity and complicated moves?
No, it’s semi-automatic and has been as simplified as possible.
Is there work before the show?
There can be, but not in the way you are probably thinking.
Is this sure fire?
Is this an act in your pocket?
If you’re a parlor or stage performer looking for something that fits in your pocket, costs about a buck to produce and has an entire theatrical presentation where you convert a skeptical audience into a believer then this is probably for you.
“This is a beast routine, people! Jakob had something very nice here.”
– Ross Tayler
“Very nice routine – a clever linking of some of the coolest techniques in mentalism into a coherent and dramatically satisfying whole.”
– Chris Philpott
“Jakob has put together a well-structured presentation of a multi-phase drawing dupe effect. He combines bits and pieces from various sources, all credited, and turns it into an effect that can easily be a closer to any act.”
– Greg Arce
“DAT Challenge Duplication will be DAT one thing you do and DAT one thing that they will all talk about.”
– Dale A. Hildebrandt
