Annemann's Practical Mental Effects
All 6 DVDs for $180.00 | Also available individually
A classic of mentalism comes to life!
Annemann's Practical Mental Effects has been a landmark book for magicians and mentalists since its release in 1944. The routines that are contained in its pages have been influencing mystery performers for over 75 years.
This exciting new DVD series explores the work of Annemann and his Jinx contributors in a scholarly way, analyzing not only the presentation of some of the strongest mentalism ever created but also the thinking behind the effects. Richard Osterlind first performs the effects in their original form before an audience of non-magicians and then very nuance is exhaustively explained with the assistance of Jim Sisti.
These six volumes truly offer the definitive work on the material from this classic book. There are routines for any situation whether close-up, parlor or stage and, additionally, you will learn classic principles of mentalism which you can apply to your own, original routines. If you ever wondered what this classic material would look like when presented in today's modern world to a contemporary audience, you now have your chance. Every effect is a stunner!
