Asi Wind: Masterclass: Live

75.00 usd

Live lecture by Asi Wind ($75.00)

One of the most respected performers in our craft, Asi Wind's work with playing cards has an impossible, hands-off feel that yields astounding results. He confounds magicians and laymen alike with a deliberate style that seems so fair at every turn. His book, Repertoire, received universal acclaim, and his recent appearance on Fool Us fooled all of us.

Asi will be covering several new concepts in his card work, as well as some of the material that has taken him around the world. The curriculum he has prepared will offer insights for both beginner and advanced card magicians, and most of the routines taught are not sleight-heavy. Asi is one of magic's most detailed teachers, and we're delighted to begin our Masterclass: Live series with Asi Wind.

In this three-week course, you'll receive three one-hour lectures and three 30-minute moderated Q&A sessions from Asi Wind on the first three Sundays in July 2020 at 4pm NYC time.

    Wilder asks: Hey guys, Wilder Rua here. I've met Asi and been to many of Jay's things to include 6 impossible things. My question is I'm active military so working and won't see live. Will the 30 Q&A also be available to view later? And can I buy Asi's masterclass first and not do the monthly subscription? I was confused on that part. I can't do monthly $50. Right now but could possibly do Asi's for sure.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Hello. Yes, as long as you are registered before the event you can watch it at a later time. After it has ended it will not be available so if you want it I'd suggest registering now.

    Travis asks: I see what appear to be conflicting answers here. If I don't buy this now, will I be able to buy it later, like next year or whatever? Or if I want these Asi Wind lectures do I have to buy now?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: To get access to the recording, you need to subscribe before the end of the first class of the month.
    • 2. Jim answers: Official answer: It is a brand new service. Please accept our apologizes over any confusion. The last day of the month is the last day that you can subscribe to that month's classes at the normal subscription price. Thereafter, students would need to buy the month's classes in arrears (for $75, which is $25 more than the normal $50 per month subscription). I hope that helps!
    • 3. Jamie answers: Jim: The price shows as $75 for me, even though there's 2 days before this begins... is that correct?

    Peter asks: Being in the UK, the lecture time is not great for me and, to be honest, live lectures suit some more than others. I’d much rather watch everything at my convenience as and when I choose. So - and my apologies, I know you must feel you’ve answered this now countless times - but just to double check; if I sign up (in a timely manner), I don’t need to watch anything live and I will be able to download EVERYTHING that the live audience get and EXACTLY as they experienced it. No editing, no tightening or condensing, no ‘tidying up’ or re-ordering etc. In fact NOT ONE EDIT, would this be correct? Thanks in advance.

    • 1. Tony answers: That's correct, you can download the lecture later.

    Jamie asks: I see Asi is covering his Gypsy Queen effect but on the Vanishing Inc site, this product is out of stock. I'd really like to buy this - especially since it's being covered in this series - are you intending to replenish your stock in the near future?

    • 1. Dottore answers: When Asi approves the production, there will be more.

    Jose Manuel asks: Hi, can I still subscribe or have to pay for this lecture alone? Thanks!

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You can subscribe until the last day of the month to get the current month's masterclasses.

    Raghav asks: If I subscribe now, will I get the recording of all the lectures or only the lectures that are left in the month?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You'll get recordings of any you missed to download and keep forever.

    Kim asks: I just joined masterclass. Does membership give me access to past classes?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It will be active from the month you have joined, so if you join part way through the month you will get all of that months classes, but you will not get the previous months classes.

Customer reviews for Asi Wind: Masterclass: Live

Reviewer

Hank

I must admit that I was sceptical about the format of these Masterclasses, especially in the COVID-19 era where the performer clearly can't have spectators in the room with them. But once again, Vanishing Inc has conceived a great format and proven that they have the technical innovation to pull it off.

I have seen the At the Table and Penguin lectures but they are very impersonal. I also find their length offputting. Having people on screen with Asi and having Joshua and Andi on camera to moderate and ask questions makes this the perfect format.

And let's not forget Asi. He is really interesting and I am finding that he is sharing his "real work" in this series much more readily than elsewhere, and that's likely due to the fluidity of the lecture format. Congratulations all involved.

I took the plunge and signed up for the subscription deal. I trust Andi and Joshua and when I saw that they were starting a Live Lecture series, I had a hunch it would be worth tuning in for. It's been even better than I expected.

I am writing this review before the last (third) instalment has been broadcast but already, I feel like I have got value for money. For the first time, I feel like I am learning material that isn't just taken from a standard lecture. Asi is tipping the magic he actually performs. Really inspiring stuff. And... as I say... there is still one more masterclass to go! I'm particularly excited for this last one as it looks like he is going to go through magic that can be done online. That's especially relevant at the moment.

The video quality has been great (that's a relief because I was worries that it would be crummy webcam footage). I'm actually fooled by the video quality! It's so crisp. Where do I get a webcam like that :D

Bravo to all involved.

Superb. Only managed to watch the first Masterclass so far but will catch up on the final two on demand. Andi and Josh are good hosts. I think it's really cool that you get the opportunity to ask questions via video link too. Hoping I get the chance to do that next month.

This is the first live lecture series I've signed up to. So, the disclaimer is that I don't have anything to compare to. HOWEVER... THIS IS GREAT. And unless I'm missing something, it's crazy cheap! You're effectively paying $50 for three 1.5 hour lectures. Good value by any standards.

Asi is great as always. Very thoughtful, and understanding more about how he constructs his magic has been eye opening. Highly recommended for anyone who is looking to take an intense course in improving their close-up magic.

I typically don't write reviews, because I am an amateur and not sure I have much of use to offer but I just wrote Josh and Andi an email congratulating them on this course. Rather than paste it here, I thought IU could rate the individual aspects out of 10.

Overall experience - 9/10
Video quality - 9/10
Content of Asi's class - 8/10
Value for money - 10/10
Production values - 8/10
Q&A Section - 9/10

Great work Andi and Josh!

So far, 10 out of 10. I just hope I get chosen to ask Asi a question live in the last session :D

A well prepared Masterclass from the world's best Magician's favourite Magician.
What you can expect is a true Masterclass.
You will start to understand how a Master thinks.
And that means the audience will have no idea - None how the magic happened. And will end up living the experience.
In other words no room for anything that might smell fishy. And let's admit much marketed magic has several "fishy" moments.
Asi expands on audience relations with great direction on performer energy and how the audience really can read you. (outcomes not outs)
Asi treats his audience as they are very smart. And even over the format he seems comfortably aggressive with getting his points across clearly (and with a smile). He feels by giving the audience much credit it elevates your performance. It sure appears he has enjoyed his learning process and wants to share. With proper crediting and book to read ideas splashed throughout.
"Look into my eyes," Asi said to Josh.
And then after 5 minutes, He fools Josh (and everybody online) with a beautiful presented dramatic trick that if read in a book or without the dressing would just puzzle someone out of a sleepy haze.
He brings fun to mentalism and points out some great ideas on presentations for revelations.
The series seems to get better - that's probably the Master structuring it that way. :)
Well worth the price to note as we are also talking money.
They do mention not to share these videos which might seem obvious, but also that might mean this lecture might Vanish if you don't pick it up before month's end. I hope they keep it up for sale somehow. And Time is money. :)
Talking of timing - Watching Asi's pace and watching how and when he puts emphasis or no emphasis will improve your skill to eliminate or transform any "dead space: in your routines.
This is very instructional Lecture series and I feel Asi is amazing medicine for mediocre magic.
Five stars.

i am probably one of those big fan of online lectures / seminars even back from EMC. Because for someone who lived in Indonesia its hard to be able to meet & talk with magicians that is living on the other side of the world.

After seeing Vanishing Inc is holding a masterclass session i was quite hesitant at first because i was a huge fan of the ATT lecture. But after seeing the lineup i took the plunge and i was not disappointed!

Asi is an amazing teacher, and a very detailed person. You can see how much work he have put into the routines he use. How experienced he is, and hearing some stories/experience from him is worth the gold for me. It feels like i am really in the same room jamming with him. I can't wait for the other Lecturers you guys did a good job with this masterclass session!

I am a fan of ASI WIND, so when I saw masterclass on vanishing inc, with Andi and Joshua behind, I did not hesitate, I have seen his live lecture and performance before. This master class was amazing, he delivered quality, experience, was generous with his knowledge - I learned so much and it took me from my funk during Covid, and fired me up, Vanishing inc presentation was well organized, video quality top, well done team, I am staying on for more master class....Luke Jermay next !!!
