Favorites - Giobbi on Vernon

Magic download (video) by Roberto Giobbi ($10.00)

Roberto Giobbi is one of the finest card technicians on the planet. He is also one of the greatest teachers of our time and in this fantastic hour-long download, he guides you in detail through three routines of Dai Vernon which he has hand picked as his Favorites.

In this first instalment of Favorites, 'Giobbi on Vernon', you will learn all of the workings, finesses and tips on three of Dai Vernon's brilliant routines. However, we believe that the true value in this download is how Roberto has woven the individual routines into an immaculate, 10 minute long, performance piece which starts with a shuffled deck. The transitions are not only effortless but absolutely seamless and without doubt, there are lessons to be learnt here for EVERYONE.

You will learn, in detail:

Emotional Reaction - A wonderful opener taken from the pages of Lewis Ganson's Inner Secrets of Card Magic. Explaining that an artist should always use his hand, his head and his heart, Roberto immediately, and charmingly engages his spectators before he impossibly finds a selected card after the deck has been freely shuffled and cut.

Four of a Kind - Also from Inner Secrets of Card Magic, 'Four of a Kind' is an impossible coincidence effect. The magician and the spectator both shuffle the deck before selecting two cards each which they exchange, face down, in order to keep their identity a secret. When the identity of the cards is revealed, the secret is proved to be worth waiting for as they are shown to be a four of a kind. This is beautiful, baffling magic at its best.

Slow Motion Aces - Roberto presents his take on Vernon's most famous routine in which four cards vanish, one by one, only to reappear on the opposite side of the table. For the climax, all four cards change places, in an instant with the spectators chosen card. This is a masterclass, not only in technique, but in how a routine should be constructed as well.

When you combine Roberto Giobbi's expertise with Dai Vernon's unmatched reputation, the only way to describe the experience is learning about a master, from a master.

Running Time: 1hr 11mins approx.

Pablo Garrido

Just buy it!
Probably one of the best downloads I have bought in a long time, not just for the tricks but for the lessons that are taught in there that are perfect examples of Ascanio's and Vernon concepts. Roberto Giobbi has done, as always, a great job! I'm looking forward for more Favorites.

I can't believe this information is only $10. The touches on Slow Motion Aces alone is worth so many more times than what is being charged. This is a great video! Thanks Roberto for being so generous.

 

Marco Fida

This is precious material at a ridiculous price. Three powerful effects routined, principles, techniques, finesses and solid thinking. Get it or be sorry!

 

Get this! It's over an hour long packed with knowledge; presented by the person that brought us Card College. Can't get better than Giobbi and Vernon. There are many downloads for 10 on the magic shops nowadays but this is on a different level. First, this is more than the typical 10 for one trick. Second, he teaches you the subtleties. I recommend reading the effects (they're classics) then watching the video in sections.
Overall, this is something you won't regret buying

 

Jorge Betancourt

Really great download!!! Roberto is a good teacher and he shows some touches, concepts, subtleties. You are going to love this download, is filled with great magic from one of the best magicians, Vernon.

I loved the touches on the half pass and how to manage a last double card in a small packet. Pure gold.

Also Roberto did a great work with the credits (as always). I can't wait for the next "Favorites" from Giobbi.

Just get this, you won't regret.

 

Lawrence Lesman

Very well executed but also very boring and long winded. If you have to explain every step of a trick, as Mr. Giobbi did in this one, that does not speak well for the magic itself. Plus, just look at the expressions of the two viewer during and at the climax. That's not the reaction you want when performing.

 

Derrick Won

Anything Giobbi does on Vernon is excellent. No need to wait on this one. If anything, get it for the Aces routine since it is truly a magical routine.

 

Miquel Ortega Pujol

Really amazing. Roberto Giobbi is probably one of the best teachers ever. The subtleties, the advices, the routining, everything is pure gold.

 

Helena Hasler

I hate to admit it (no, actually I don't): Roberto fooled me on the set-up part for the trick after ER. :-)
Get this download. It is GOOD. Once again, I am pleasantly reminded, why Roberto Giobbi is one of my favorite teachers in magic! Very convincing and intelligent routining here.
