December's lineup begins with Jack Carpenter, moves on to Alan Rorrison, continues with Rich Ferguson, and ends with Chris Mayhew.
Jack Carpenter has contributed over 40 years of his life to the art of magic. His sleight of hand techniques are truly one of a kind. Jack WILL completely FRY your mind as you become de-railed with where you THINK it's all going to go, only to be completely way-off. THAT is the reason why Jack Carpenter has been praised by some of the top cardmen in magic today. From his published books, to manuscripts, to DVDs, Jack has spent a lifetime paving the way for the die-hard sleight of hand enthusiasts.
This will be YOUR chance to learn NEVER BEFORE published material from one of magic's true legends. In this "sleight of hand course", Jack will be going over:
Card steals, shuffles and controls. PLUS Jack will show you some never before seen routines that utilize these moves.
Alan Rorrison is quite the creative fellow. He has been a creative consultant for both Dynamo and TROY, and has released many hit effects into the magical universe. He thinks outside of the box and his many creations reflect that mindset.
In this lecture, Alan will be performing and explaining effects that have never seen print. Not only that, he will spend time talking about the creative process from HIS point of view, and share with you what goes on in his mind when trying to create a new effect. Alan will also talk about creating magic for TV and how that differs from creating for himself and others. So, unpublished work from Alan Rorrison? A talk on creativity from a creative guy? Yes please!
What CAN'T be said about Rich Ferguson? Well how about in 2012, Rich had one of YouTube's MOST searched for videos? Or what about being a featured guest on the daytime hit television show, Ellen? Or, maybe it's his #1 book ranking on Amazon? How about being one of the finalists on NBC's reality show, Phenomenon? How about top-selling effects like Serial Biller, Tagged and Out of this Word?
Rich Ferguson is taking time out of his busy schedule to sit down with you to teach you more than just magic tricks. Rich will be talking a LOT about MARKETING and how to sell yourself to others. He will also talk about YouTube, what it means to the magic community, and how you can let yourself be seen and heard! Rich will also talk about promotion and how to promote yourself as well as promoting your brand.
Chris Mayhew. The mighty Chris Mayhew is but a young chap who fools when he performs. Plain and simple. His CAANDY effect absolutely fooled the heck out of some of the most knowledgeable sleight of hand technicians around. To say it bluntly, Chris Mayhew is damn good. His technique and skill? Truly uncanny. He is so good in fact that it has been rumored that even Dai Vernon tried to contact him once.
It's already been mentioned that CAANDY was a huge HIT. So was A Clockwork Apple. It was an amazing success. If you are a true card man, then please do not miss out on the opportunity to see Chris Mayhew at work!
