Card Magic Masterclass - magic

Introducing THE best way to build a card magic foundation. Twenty years ago Roberto Giobbi, card magic's most distinguished author, wrote Card College, a series of books now considered THE Bibles on card magic. This video series is the next step.

In five volumes covering five major areas of card magic (Controls, Switches, Palms, Forces, False Shuffles), Giobbi teaches his favorite entries from Card College as well as new techniques not described in those volumes. If you have and study Card College, this is the PERFECT video companion. If you've never read Card College, this series is like having Mr. Giobbi in your living room giving you private instruction.

You won't just learn all the wonderful and important sleights in card magic, you'll also learn the fine points, finesses, and subtleties of each one, so that you carry out the techniques the way connoisseurs do: with invisible precision.

We release a small amount of original content each year, but Card Magic Masterclass will be an enduring resource - a legacy, perhaps - to magicians for years to come. Thanks to Roberto Giobbi, magicians have an at-home academy to master ALL the important techniques in card magic. It's time to take your card magic seriously. It's time to start your Card Magic Masterclass.

Customer reviews for Card Magic Masterclass

Barthelemy Glumineau

A great way for the beginner and the more advanced to refresh some of the most valuable technics and subtlety of card magic.

 

Jeffrey Ashkettle

In my opinion, this is a perfect option for the beginner or hobbyist to raise their bar. It is also a great package for more advanced card magicians to go back to and refine some of the bad habits that may have been picked up over the years. Pacing is right on point, explanations are crystal clear and very detailed. At this point, I would say there is a whole generation that started with the Card College 5 volume set and this really is the perfect companion for the books, especially if you are ready to step up your game. This is one of those great purchases that you won't regret.

 

Mark Mycyk

To call this a "Masterclass" does not do this project or Robert Giobbi complete justice. This is not be considered a replacement or substitute for Card College Books 1-5 -- it should instead be a required complement to those spectacular books. Hearing Giobbi's candid thoughts on what works, what to prioritize, and most importantly, how to think and see from the perspective of the viewer/audience is valuable beyond words. I would give this a score of 11 on a scale from 0 to 10. How he breaks this project up into 5 parts is smart. For instance, the Controls session resulted in a nuanced but complete change to my handling -- I am more comfortable, more confident, and the astonishment of my audience has been palpable. Giobbi is always an excellent teacher. Thank you to Roberto Giobbi and Vanishing Inc for this spectacular holiday surprise!
