13 Steps to Mentalism by Corinda

Today, known throughout the world, Corinda has been acclaimed as inventor, writer, and teacher of Mentalism — the art of mind-reading. While on tour in America, his friends persuaded him to write a book and with the support of nearly every professional Mentalist in the world, Corinda set out to compile The Thirteen Steps to Mentalism.

After two years the series was published step by step. Without the advice of friends and invaluable assistance of the Puslisher, Harry Clarke, the task would have been impossible. However, Corinda succeeded in producing what has now become the most classic encyclopedia of mental magic. For this, he has received many honours — including recognition from The Magic Circle who awarded him membership to the Inner Circle with Gold Star — a covetous award.

Steal This by Eric Ross

The Effect:
Steal This DVD is a collection of 7 effects from the mind of Eric Ross which are sure to stun even the most perceptive spectators. On this DVD, Eric utilizes everything from playing cards to rubber bands to a needle and thread. All the effects are taught in great detail with multiple real life performances on the streets of New Orleans.

Think Ink
A card is chosen and placed back in the deck. A notebook is introduced and a blank page is ripped out. The paper is dipped into a glass of water (or any beverage) and the selected card appears on the paper in bright color. The piece of paper can be examined before during and after the effect and kept as an unbelievable souvenir.

Two rubber bands are shown and examined. The bands are held very openly and with no funny moves the bands link. This has got to be one of the most visual rubber band links to date.

This one is spooky. A card is chosen and placed back in the deck. Inspired by how Superman could freeze things with his breath, you blow onto a nearby window and their selection appears in the fog. The greatest thing about this one is that no gimmicks are required.

So visual and so unexpected. A card is selected and lost in the deck. When the first attempt to find the card fails, you instruct the audience to picture their card on the back of another playing card. With a flick the card explodes to reveal their selected card.

This is a card and bill transpo that gets screams! A bill is borrowed, folded and placed into the spectators hand. A card is then chosen from the deck. Upon inspection of the deck their card has vanished and a dollar bill is in its place. When they open their hand it is revealed that they are now holding their selected card.

Book Smart
Mentalism meets magic in a new and fun way. A spectator selects a page from a book, inspects it and notes the page number. A card is then chosen and placed back in the deck. The spectator is instructed to burn that card into their mind. Startled, you say, “I told you to burn it into your mind, not the book.” When you go to the selected page… their selected card is now burnt into the page.

The Infection
This truly bizarre effect allows you to thread your ear piercing with a needle and thread and allow a spectator to rip the thread straight through your ear. This is a beautiful performance piece that will make you stand out from the common trickster.Running Time Approximately: 72min

Perfection by Oz Pearlman

“Perfection is aptly named. For the cleanest, most direct and most downright impossible ESP card matching routine you will ever see, Perfection is my only choice.” - James Cheung, creator of Cerebro and Midas

The Effect:
Imagine this: you shuffle a regular deck of cards (no gaffs!) and your spectator takes about half. She shuffles her half, and you shuffle yours. You both start to deal cards face-up. She deals a red 5, you deal a red 5. Could this be a coincidence? She deals a black king, you deal a black king… she deals, you deal, and every single one of her cards matches yours, in perfect order. EACH AND EVERY CARD. ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE DECK.

Perfection is one of those rare routines where spectators handle the cards and are in total control. They don’t just witness the impossible, they experience it.

In performance, Perfection has a similar feel to Paul Curry’s legendary “Out of this World”–the audience gets to make all the decisions, and as each card is dealt the effect becomes more and more unexplainable. The difference with Perfection is that the dealing sequence IS the climax so you get to the reaction sooner and build from there. Modern audiences are fully engaged and react with spontaneous laughter and applause.

* Instant reset and instantly repeatable!
* Tons of audience participation!
* Learn one of the easiest and most convincing false shuffles in existence! This shuffle is easy to do, very versatile and truly gives the illusion of a deck being shuffled.
* Uses a regular deck of cards–no gimmicks!

As a SPECIAL BONUS, Oz teaches you how to perform Perfection with ESP cards. The ESP Match Up routine allows you to demonstrate your mind reading abilities. It can be done impromptu–at a moment’s notice–by writing ESP symbols on the back of business cards. This is mentalism that can be done anywhere, anytime!

Torn And Restored Newspaper by Ben Salinas

The Effect:
A "tear-able" collection featuring one of the greatest tricks in magic!

Imagine the best magic, the best magicians, and the best producers all in one place.

Imagine no more...
If you could have one set of magic DVDs, this would be it! This benchmark collection features just about all of magic's most enduring and classic effects and routines. It's a fabulous compendium with many of the top masters in the world of magic teaching their handlings and routines for some of magic's classics. Linking rings, sponge balls, metal bending, cups and balls, thumb tips, Zombie, color-changing knives, and many, many more topics are all gathered in this one terrific DVD reference set. Each volume covers a specific subject and features new, old, and sometimes rare footage by some of the top video producers in magic.

One of magic's most enduring effects has always been the Torn and Restored Newspaper (revealed & free download), and for good reason. Newspapers and magazines are objects that almost everyone interacts with on a daily basis so when a magician picks up one of these seemingly ordinary items and performs a highly visual, veritable miracle with it, people immediately take notice.

On this DVD, you'll meet six master magicians who each has their own singular take on this magical classic. Paul Potassy's continental style of performing in no way prepares the audience for the diabolical trap he sets for them as he not only tears up and restores a newspaper, but in offering to explain how it's done, leaves the audience even more baffled. Fielding West uses the Al Baker Newspaper Tear as a jumping off point for some great comedy and classic magic while Richard Osterlind actually has the newspaper signed before tearing it up and completely restoring it.

Steve Dacri then passes along an underground trade show secret shown to him by Frank Garcia - a show-stopping trick with a page torn from a magazine that's torn and restored and verified to be the original page by a piece entrusted to a spectator at the very start. Next, Alex Elmsley's timeless newspaper tear is performed and then meticulously explained by the master himself. Finally, Terry Seabrooke shares a newspaper tear gag that is a perfect bit for magical MCs or as an interlude in any comedy magic act.

Almost no other effect says "magic" like the Torn and Restored Newspaper and you're sure to find a version of this timeless trick here that's just perfect for you and your style of performing.

This a must own DVD for performers and entertainers of all kinds! Take a newspaper, rip it into pieces, and restore it back to its original condition. Seem impossible? It isn't! Ben Salinas will perform and teach nine different tears as well as go through the instructions for setup in step-by-step demonstrations.

This is a very popular and classic illusion. This DVD will teach you how to perform it with a bit of preparation and any newspaper. If you'd rather have a version that is already made up for you, please see the Torn and Restored Newspaper effect.

The Nine Tears:
Slydini - the classic of magic
Simplicity - one of the easiest
Tearless - cut to the chase
MC Gag Bit - a stand-up act
Commando - for emergencies
Signed - spectator participation
Instant Reset - a quick restoration
My favorite - blend of the best
Classic - the big payoff

The Thing by Bill Abbott

The Effect:
The reputation-making one-man levitation that can be performed ANYWHERE! Perform it in a living room, on a large theater stage, or in broad daylight on the street. The Thing can float in any performing situation with your audience viewing from any angle. No matter how close the spectators are, whether they’re behind, on top or underneath you, they will not see how this The THING by trick Bill Abbott ( Revealed &free download) works! Practical, one-man levitations are few and far between. After a decade and a half of research and development in front of real audiences, Bill is re-releasing the routine Genii magazine has called, “The most practical, portable, self-contained, angle proof levitation effect ever.”

Routine Description

You show a box made of clear plastic completely empty. The box lid is opened and an empty cloth handkerchief is draped over the open box. Mysteriously a form rises slowly up from out of the box under the cloth continuing up until it is hovering suspended in mid-air.

The audience can have a clear view of the levitation from any angle and can see is no support of any kind. You then lift a corner of the cloth up and over the levitating object only to have it suddenly disappear leaving the cloth hanging empty in your fingers!

By draping the cloth over the invisible object it slowly makes its reappearance in an unbelievably magical fashion. The object can then float up and out of your fingers, shoot on a horizontal plane away from you or out above the heads of the audience. Finally you push the cloth-covered object back down into the box, dramatically close the lid and bow to thunderous applause!

Points to consider:
* No threads
* No magnets
* No assistants
* No reset, perform it over and over again without any lighting or staging considerations to worry about.

"Branded really raises the bar! This is a drop-dead easy, incredibly convenient handling of the card blister effect. It’s a sturdy, simple, real world worker that a pro will really use.” – Paul Harris

The Effect:
