Customer reviews for In Case of ESP
Very simple effect but with a great explanation and thoughts on how to make it your own effect.
"In Case of ESP" is so much more than a mentalism effect. You receive the "Performance" and the "Tutorial" as to the "how to" for the effect. However, Max Maven provides some brief background regarding the history of the development of the ESP cards, their introduction into the public domain and the world of mentalism, and helps the student or apprentice of mentalism to explore a segment of the mentalism expanse. The presentation is very clear as to understanding, it is interesting and educational. The presentation is brief to not lull the viewer into a dream state, but not so brief as to lose the significance of the material being taught. Excellent purchase. I highly recommend the purchase for the student of mentalism and for the non-mentalist to possess additional knowledge within the realm of magical entertainment.
this is a very compelling explanation of a very cool trick
As always Max Maven is very through and in depth. HIs knowledge of magic, history and theory is humbling. I love learning the background of an effect as well as the theory of the idea and presentation. As Max says, "It is a simple method, which is not to say simplistic". This is something you can easily carry with you at all times and a perfect way to introduce someone to the mysteries of mentalism.
A trick is just a trick...but to really makes a trick memorable it takes good presentation. Max Maven teaches you the mechanics of the trick but teaches you and challenges you to build on the foundation that he has laid down for you to get a "Wow" moment from your spectator.
That was amazing!!!!
Excellent effect, great presentation, and of course Max Maven a living legend...
Great production values.
Vanishing inc team please bring us more projects from Max.
Even as an one off speech.
Important to have a quality microphone especially for Max Maven
Max is incapable of doing anything but exceptionally fine work. As always, this short clip is chock full of valuable information, advice, tips, etc. Very well done! And, of course, this effect is completely mystifying. Hard-hitting yet not at all difficult. What’s not to love?
