JAIME TREJO C/O
This download comes with two videos, one is a lecture and the other is a workshop. The workshop is Elmsley thoughts on some moves, some performances without explanation, and a Q&A session. I enjoyed a lot the workshop.
Now comes the lecture.
Power Poker: From ten cards, spectators make free choices of five cards and you will always win. This is good, I don’t usually perform this kind of magic, but I may give it a try.
Dream trick: The spectator discards some cards from a pile until one is left (totally free choices), you still be able to say the name of the card. I think that there is better ways of doing this, but the method is clever.
Ten Plus: I loved the final part of this, just imagine this, a spectator freely thinks of a card from a fan of ten cards and you can say what card he is thinking of! Loved it!
Colour Filter: This is a kind of oil & water with a visual aspect. You show eight cards, four reds and four blacks, all alternated, then you put them inside a handkerchief, after that you visually pull out the black cards one by one! This is pretty cool, I liked it.
Kasual Kosky: Great switch for a sandwiched card, easy and casual.
Andrews colour change: I didn’t like this that much.
Pinky Steal: This is very good, Mr. Elmsley teaches a variation that is also good. I definitely going to try it.
Three in hiding: A very strong effect. The magician makes three piles made of the number of cards three spectators freely selected, then each spectator takes the top card and hide it in his pocket (the magician is turned around), even in that impossible conditions, the magician is able to call out the three cards. It’s for an intermediate card man, but I think that worth performing it.
Oyster shells: This is for comedy magic, you take out sunglasses and say that you can find the aces with them. After that, you give the sunglasses to a spectator so he can find the aces with them, too. The back of the aces are now red, so the spectator can easily find them, then you change them back to the original back color and end clean. It’s good, funny and easy.
No-Calc: A very nice mathematic trick to find two cards, very clean and you don’t need to make calculations. I liked it, I may try it.
Cross of Lorayne: A transposition between two cards with no dupes. I didn’t like it too much, it’s ok, but I think I will not perform it.
I can’t recommend this enough, it’s really great and I felt as if I were with Mr. Elmsley in his lecture. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, you will not be disappointed.
