A streamlined and inexpensive version of Scott & Puck's The Needles -- strong enough to be used as a closer or anywhere in your show.
TOXIC ACAAN SQUARED
The Magic Square gets a reboot by infusing the classic ACANN plot TOXIC FORCE and a kicker ending that makes the audience jump to their feet.
A warm and enchanting closing effect combining Dan Harlan's Starcle and the classic Snowstorm, creating an ultraviolet and unforgettable audience experience. Scott closes with this one a lot because of its strong audience appeal.
A thoughtful version of the Hydrostatic glass you can make for pennies, combined with a wonderful premise based on the philosophy of Bruce Lee.
