The use of a 'Flash product' is the perfect way to enhance a magic trick. Yet, there is very little written or recorded about how, when and where to use these products. On this DVD, Scott Penrose* gives an in depth teaching on everything you'll need to know - including how to store, how to handle, how to use and even how to tell the quality of products available. There's performance and explanation with many uses for both close up and stage magic. There are many effects shown and taught in this lecture by Scott, but most importantly - he shows you how to add some sparkle and surprise into the magic effects you already perform!
*Scott Penrose is a professional magician from the London area of England - He's a council member of 'The Magic Circle' and magic adviser to many of the top west end theatre shows.
Running Time: Approximately 1hr 40mins
You present the current issues of two popular magazines and allow a spectator to examine all of them and choose one. You turn away and instruct her to open her magazine to any page and think of any word. "But let's find a good word," you say, "Make it a difficult word." She thinks of any word, on any page. It could be buried in an ad or a word from a picture caption. It's all fair game. Once she has a word in her mind, she closes the magazine and you turn around. You look her in the eyes and tell her what word she is thinking of.
Glance is the ingenious creation of Ireland's Steve Thompson. In collaboration with Vanishing Inc. and designed by Andi Gladwin, Glance brings you an entirely prepared contemporary news magazine. Wrap it with any current magazine cover and you will have one of the most potent weapons available to the performing mentalist: an ordinary object that allows you to do extraordinary things.
With the blessing of Ted Karmilovich (creator of Mother of All Book Tests), Glance allows you to perform one of the most impossible, memorable feats of mentalism with an object everyone has heard of and read before. And with Steve's ingenious new system, you don't even need to fish for any information about the word before revealing it.
"It's like the MILF of all book tests."
- Justin Willman
"To be blunt, the price tag is WAY too low for a secret this strong!"
- Ken Weber
"The best and most natural looking magazine test I have ever seen."
- John Archer
