This series of masterclasses were incredible. Blake gave so much detail and explanation! Along with that, the Vanishing Inc. Team did an incredible job with their service. At one point there were some tech issues, and the Vanishing Inc. Team handled it perfectly, and ended up giving us even more than we thought we were getting! Thanks Blake and Vanishing Inc!

Magicians aren't strangers to shelling out $50 for a single trick that might never get performed and crumbles to dust in a junk drawer. In contrast, Blake Vogt's masterclass was probably the best $50 I've ever spent for magic. I've been splitting cards (badly) for years maybe getting one arguably successful split in four tries, and literally the first time I tried Blake's method I got the best split I'd ever done. That alone was worth the price. But add to that the multiple utility methods taught, his insights and experience on the creative process, the real-time feedback and answering of questions, the live jam with a special guest star VIA A CELL PHONE IN A CAR when the WiFi was dodgy, and the ability to pick his brain live and one-on-one on a specific trick I was working on, and honestly it's a no-brainer. SO glad I was a part of this! (Plus, he's just a super-nice guy!)

The entire Masterclass Live Subscription has been great. Blake Vogt's series of lectures was the best in my opinion as the material has changed the way I look at Magic and creating. I really like the format of the lectures and extra material that is handed out. Then the follow up Zoom meeting allows for an informal get together to discuss additional questions. I look forward to this each week and I will have material to work on for the rest of my life.

Fantastic and a must-watch to discover your creativity in creating your own gimmicks! After watching this Masterclass, not only do you come away with a bunch of tricks and gimmicks with the skills to create them for yourself, but you get a rare glimpse into the mind of a creative genius and the process of inventing effects of your own. Some things money can't buy, like the confidence to just go out and try creating and pitching an idea for yourself... but this is as close as it gets to putting inspiration in a can! Blakes friendly, flowing and genuine commitment to the class to help everyone is easy to see and he doesn't hold back. You'll certainly enjoy this one!! *****

This is an amazing lecture that will definitely inspire you to create other stuff. It's also a great starting point if you want to try building gimmicks and gaffs. I will go over the specific materials:

Envelock: This utility allows you to load any thin object into a tightly sealed envelope. Blake uses this utility to basically perform thought of card to envelope style trick. It's very clever and clean, but you have to be really natural for this. He already put out a download for this trick/utility at $34 and with other materials, it's steal. 8/10

Fold flat card box: This box isn't really a trick, but a way to make your card box so it folds flat, and last much longer. You can also secretly store extra cards. 6/10

Multiple Out: This is probably the highlight of this lecture for me. It's a multiple out system. And he also already released this as a product. I will leave the rest to your imagination. 9.5/10

Instant origami t shirt: you turn a borrowed dollar into a origami t shirt. Very cute. I won't be performing this, but it's a great trick for a casual environment. 5/10

Card splitting & assembly: Blake is probably the best teacher when it comes to card splitting technique. He also quickly goes over making double index cards and Hofzinser card. 9/10

Bill splitting: it's not as detailed teaching as the card splitting section, but it will give you the basic techniques. 8/10

The collapsing card: He uses this gimmick to perform this routine: spectator thinks of a card in a spread, the spread visually turns to a single card spectator thought of. Very visual. I think this works amazing over Zoom. But im sure you can use this gimmick for other tricks. Probably the hardest gimmick to make in this lecture, but worth it if it's something you like. 8/10

Super glued fingers: I love this. You put super glue on both thumbs and index of your left and right hand, then penetrate them into each other. One downside is that you will end with super glue stick to your thumb and index but totally worth it. Suitable for party situation. I did this the day before I took my first SAT, don't do that!!! 9/10

Portable product box/production card box: this will be great for comedy performers. You can basically produce thin objects from a box. I actually haven't tried this yet. 6/10

Rubber band thru hand: Blake's version of Dan hauss's rubber thru hand. Very visual and clean. 8/10

Theory/discussion about consulting/jam with a special guest: real highlight of the lecture. I won't spoil much, but I can guarantee it's amazing. He and the secret guest gives you a lot of small ideas.

Overall a great Masterclass, but it really depends a lot on your style. I still think you can definitely learn thing or two even if you don't like building gimmicks. Amazing experience!!!

A big part of magic is creating and creativity. So of course there needs to be a Masterclass on that. Cue Blake Vogt.

This Masterclass teaches a lot about gimmick making, for example some very detailed tips on card splitting. I had never done that before, and I immediately was able to split cards and make my first gimmicked card. And it was a lot of fun to do!

Of course Blake has his card splitting videos, which you can also get at Vanishing. But this Masterclass doesn't stop with gimmicked cards.

Besides the other tricks Blake teaches, you really get a peek behind the curtains on how Blake Vogt creates new tricks, for example Blake Vogt brainstorming with a friend. Which you get to see happing right in front of you, like an episode of 'Magicans in cars getting coffee'.

I think this Masterclass has something for everyone, whether you're a new magician or a mentalist for years (or the other way around). But especially if you want to learn more about creating tricks or need an inspiration boost.

You might want and or need to buy some things for the gimmick making. But Blake even goed into details what to buy. And let's not forget, you will get a bunch of pdf templates in your account.

For me, this was fun, educational and inspiring! I will definitely go back and watch it again.

Awesome super nice guy. Awesome content, teachings, craft, card splitting and gaff building, jam session ideas, theory, etc. can’t say enough. $50 for 4.5 hours of teaching and q&a’s plus another 90 minute one on one q&a? STEAL!!! $75 would even be a steal for one time purchase. Definitely check out Blake’s Master Class ASAP!!! Thank you Vanishing and Blake!!!

In this specific masterclass Blake Vogt brought his upbeat personality along with his brilliant constructive rubber cement fumed mind to display his love for gimmick constructing and working with others to create beautiful and visual art while simultaneously teaching you the ins and outs of everything along the way.

This is my 2nd Masterclass and between the tight, interactive, and loving community and the people leading the series through-and-through, this makes for a fantastic short-series.

But honestly, just save a few bucks in the long run and just get the subscription. In the subscription, is where you truly join a community and if you take advantage of it, could make you some friends with thoughtful insight on anything thats been on your mind along the way.

When it comes to creativity Blake is at the top of his game.

He has created some of the best working gimmicks out their.

When I saw he was going to be lecturing although I can split money cards and make those sorts of gimmicks I knew it was a lecture to watch to buy it and it didn’t disappoint. Vanishing Inc and the team are producing a quality product for people to get close and personal with greats in magic. And in the first 3 weeks we learn so much and they made sure we got everything we needed to even if it meant time over ran.

In the final week we got to chat over with Blake things and if people need to ask any question everyone got a chance to.

We even got 2 treats one was Daniel Garcia Surprise appearance and the other was being part of a creative process.

Don’t just think about Masterclass sign up today you won’t regret it.

Blake’s Masterclass was great on so many levels! He teaches some great tricks, but more importantly, he teaches you the fundamentals for building your own gimmicks and how he thinks about making new magic. These lessons don’t just add tricks to your repertoire; they help you think about how to be more creative, more resourceful, and be a better magician.

Brice

Amazing!! He goes in Ultimate detail on amazing tricks made by him. If you were to buy these tricks alone they would be well over $75. Wow vanishing Inc. BEST lecture ever!

This was my first Masterclass, and I'm so glad I subscribed! Blake's Masterclass was super informative, interesting, and full of solid material. Plus, a surprise guest! I was only able to watch one of the three classes live, and I also missed the live Zoom call on week four -- and that's my only complaint: I wish I'd been able to take part in that Zoom call, too. So, if the only negative was my own schedule, I'd say that's a pretty positive review. This Masterclass is definitely worth it, and I really dig the format, so I also recommend the Masterclass series as a whole.
