This book is epic when it comes to mentalism-geek style magic. It is considered a landmark by many.
Effects such as 'Reverse Gestalt Moment' where you can cause a spectator to forget their selection are very well crafted. The book has detailed explanations to basic method, performance notes, subtleties and even detailed patter. 'For Andruzzi', Luke Jermay's pulse stop is a great effect. As impossible as it sounds, you can stop a spectator's pulse. These two effects are alone worth the cost of the book.
However, it does need a lot of confidence, audience management and fluidity. Hence, I'll place it in the advanced section. Practice is a must. Anyone who does not like hard work should not get this book because it will get you nowhere.
Having said that, this book is a must for anyone trying to excel in Mentalism-Hyno domain of magic.
The change should be worth more.
This was recommended to me by the master himself, Liderc. And for him to rate something highly, it has to be good.
The change is of high quality. Pure sleight of hand at its best. Its worth every penny if not more. Highly recommended.
The teaching is very good in an HD video with two separate camera angles. He gives brief insight and tips on angles.
The trick however needs to be practiced in order to make it smooth and natural.
Its a good DVD with effects besides cards. Not recommended if you have been around magic for a while.
Good instruction of crazy man's handcuffs... And Slink adds a nice ending to the routine.
Touch is a bit of an old concept. Much like shadow coins. However, the handling is good.
Bent, has a simple principle. It could have been more visual.
Overall, good DVD. Nothing 'Great' but not 'Bad' either...
This DVD is nothing more than a marketing tool for earning money...
The sleights taught might be useful for beginners, but I can count a hundred better places to learn them. There is absolutely no importance to psychological factors. The performances are all for the same recognizable employee.
Not recommended. Period.
A great trick by Wayne Houchin. Also marketed under the name 'Sinful', this has gained a lot of good credit.
Its impromptu, hard hitting and direct. The handling can be awkward sometimes.
The fact that it has been featured on 'Mindfreak' should prove its worth.
But it does require some presentational skills and smooth moves which require practice
The effect is completely original and hard hitting. Taught very well by Wayne Houchin.
I believe its biggest pro is that its completely safe and impromptu. This is impromptu and no setup magic at its best.
However, it does require quite a bit of practice and good presentation to pull this off. The method is more psychological than physical in terms of presentation.
The bonus effect STOP by Daniel Garcia might not be the most perfect thing one is looking for, however, it might be workable if the situation is right.
This one is a must for anyone who wants to excel in magic especially geek magic like this.
This DVD is not the conventional teach a trick DVD. It might not impress people with the effects included, but is worth buying because of all the content featured.
Includes interviews with Aaron Fisher, The Buck Twins and David Regal. The first disc is very helpful and inspiring. It has all three interviews plus additional tips on routining, performing and psychological aspects. Includes a full length performance of Wayne Houchin at The Magic Castle.
The effects on the DVD are mostly old ones like the classic Twisting the Aces. However, the handling of the effects is new and might be helpful to those starting afresh.
Overall, it is a good DVD. Nothing to die for, but worth buying.
This is possibly one of the best 5 tricks ever released as a standalone under the tag 'street magic'.
From the great Wayne Houchin (I'm a big fan now) comes this simple to do and high impact effect that will satisfy all you can demand from an effect.
The effect itself is almost miraculous. It does not require anything difficult theoretically, but showmanship and knowing your audience is a must for the full potential of this effect.
The teaching on the DVD is commendable. Every possible move, every psychological aspect and all the subtleties and details are taught in great depth.
This is one of the select few effects from 'Street Magic' that no one will detest.
The DVD comes along with the same as always enthralling marketing and performances with an employee (the same one over and over...)
If you are a beginner and are looking to buy this, please do not suffer as I've had. Its useless. The tricks included are not worth the price. They are not 'magic' or 'miraculous' effects, merely tricks to amuse friends at the bus stop.
The presentation and patter taught in the DVD is very direct. Almost too direct and sometimes arrogant. Often very cheesy.
However, the effects (although kinda rubbish) are taught in great detail. But there is very little, or virtually no stress on psychological factors and subtleties.
I'm surprised no one has done a review on this amazing effect.
Recommended for everyone interested in good yet simple card magic. The trick itself is nothing too elaborate and is very simple. But it still goes into the 'Intermediate' slot because only an experienced performer with good audience management can get the full potential out of this trick.
Its not a trick where your audience sees something and then tries to figure out how you did it... Its crafted as a trick that gives your audience an experience of very subtle yet hard hitting magic.
The Nowhere Pass is an interesting variation on the classic Bluff Pass. It does provide a lot of flexibility as far as the position of the card in the deck is concerned.
This is an excellent item. Recommended to me by the great Liderc. Its one of the greatest controls on the market.
Although based on an old idea, its a very practical application and is especially useful for those that are beginning in magic or are inexperienced with many classic moves...
The application as a color change might seem a bit peculiar. But overall, its a very good investment and one of my most used card controls.
