Magic download (video) by Dani DaOrtiz ($75.00)

This one-of-a-kind download features nearly 6.5 hours of learning from a master of card magic. From card magic secrets to the psychological techniques you can use to make them truly unforgettable, the "Dani DaOrtiz Masterclass" is one of the best ways to learn how to become a better overall magician.

Legendary magician Dani DaOrtiz is revered by magicians around the world for his signature frenetic performances and ability to make super powerful and fooling magic that is deceptively simple. Much of his success can be attributed to a keen understanding of the necessary philosophical and psychological underpinnings for creating true miracle-level moments of magic.

For this exclusive, three-part Vanishing Inc. Masterclass, Dani takes a deep dive into the unique brand of highly-fooling and wildly entertaining card magic that has taken him around the world. You'll learn a variety of effects, including new practical and commercial effects that were not published anywhere else prior to this Masterclass.

Beyond just learning the magic methods, Dani provides a rare glimpse into the "real work" behind the mental and psychological techniques he uses to amplify the impact of every effect. You'll quickly learn how the realm of possibility for card tricks expands well beyond just the effect and method.

The "Dani DaOrtiz Masterclass" includes two full-length lectures. You also get a exclusive bonus video in which Dani shares a revolutionary technique he has never shared to English-speaking magicians before.

Session 1: Triumphs
Dani details his most deceptive Triumph effects (including several unpublished routines). This includes discussing the inner secrets to making your existing Triumph routines, and your card magic as a whole, even more powerful.

Session 2: Magic from the "Spectator's Point of View"
Using a variety of new semi-automatic, nearly self-working card tricks as examples, Dani explains how he strengthens every effect by examining it through the spectator's point of few. This includes a discussion of how he blends both chaos and naturalness within several of his routines.

BONUS Session: Freedom of Speech Technique
Previously only available to Spanish-speaking magicians, Dani shares his "Freedom of Speech" technique in English for the first time ever. This is an influential line of thinking and philosophy that has helped countless magicians improve their psychological weapons. This session also features a special Q&A in which Dani answers questions about the lectures from members of Vanishing Inc. Monthly.

Those interested in learning more about the idea of leveraging psychology and the viewpoint of their spectator to improve their magic performances should also check out Freedom of Expression by Dani DaOrtiz.

Everyone knows that Dani DaOrtiz is a legend! This was a most educational lecture. It covers every possible angle of a triumph. Special attention given to card control and sorting an entire deck right beneath our noses! Thank you so much Vanishing Inc.!

Fantastic.

Excellent!! Nothing was "lost in translation" and the video issues were not significant to the teaching, in my humble opinion. Thank you, Mr D!!!

If Dani were to leave a review of his own Masterclass, he might say: "Buy this lecture, or don't. It's your life." But you should, and here's why: Dani is contagious. The content and thinking he shares "is unbelievable" (to use his phrase), and I learned a ton. While the content is top tier, it's just as much fun to simply to watch a Master share his craft. Thanks Dani!

It was one of the best Masterclasses of the year. Dani packed his session with clear explanations and precise demonstrations of each technical trick he presented. His philosophy and ideas can be transposed to many aspects of magic. He did a fantastic job and like the Author Joseph Conrad, who wrote in his second language, did a great job presenting the lecture in English. This was a treat and the time flew by.

A very detailed class about Triumph. This is a serious class about Triumph, and Dani goes over the many layers, perspectives, and approaches to strengthening this classic trick. Although the first class is "only" one trick, the methods and approaches that Dani talks about can be applied to other card tricks to make them stronger.

Wonderful and thought-provoking lecture covering much ground on the theory/psychology of Triumph along with many variations and ideas on handlings. My only complaint is Dani seemed to have turned off the audio on the video performances he showed (aside from the very first one of Open Triumph). I could listen to Dani for hours, and thankfully I can with this Masterclass! :D

Great insights. It is very important to know the spectator's view is the most important, if not the most accurate, point of view.

This was one of the best lectures I have experienced. Excellent material, a true master class.

This was a great Masterclass (second), coming in at two and a half hours it was a great example of effects backed up by incredible theory. I cannot imagine anyone coming away from this class without some gem that he or she can use in their act.
The video was crystal clear and last week’s video has been re-shot with added material. The tricks that Dani teaches are, for the most part, typically Dani. The theory, however, is brilliant and applicable to almost any piece.
Some of my favorite advice is to look at the magic from the spectator’s point of view. This will cause the spectator to remember what the performer highlights and forget the things that actually make the trick work. Dani explains that memory is malleable and can be controlled by the performer. This is an areal that is being explored by academics today and makes a huge difference in magic.
Dani’s parable about the champaign bottle is an example of his genius. The magic must build and build until, when the denouement is finally revealed, the spectator’s reaction is like the uncorking a shaken bottle of champaign. It explodes, just like the bottle. Dani also goes into the expectation of spectators (e.g., when a card is torn, the spectator expects it to be restored, not for the two pieces to change color, etc.
The chosen, signed, card in water-bottle is at the end of the lecture. I can see how this would be a closer for almost any show. The important thing here, however, is not the tricks, but the theory. A don’t miss from one of the most incredible performers in Magic today.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

This masterclass delivers exactly what it promises. A masterclass in the truest sense of the word. It’s no surprise that Dani’s brilliance shines through in every routine and every piece of wisdom imparted here. I can totally see myself going back again and again and learning something new each time.

OK, I rated this as "pretty good." So let me explain. Dani is a true master. And as a master, Dani doesn't focus on the things that we mere mortals focus on. Throughout his lecture, Dani emphasized over and over again that it is not the method of the trick that matters. Rather, it is how the magician utilizes the relevant principles. In my super-humble opinion, Dani doesn't realize that his genius is taking principles we all know about and coming up with a method that is GENIUS. Other, lesser magicians who know of the very same principles that Dani applies would never even come close to coming up with Dani's methods. So, for purposes of the Master Class, I think Dani's methods DO matter, and I would have liked to see more of them in this lecture. So the "pretty good" rating could have been improved with more tricks taught and less theory, or at least more applications of the theory he discusses in this lecture. But, yeah, Dani is the man.

Very hard to understand the English. Needs to slow down the explanations.
