Shin Lim's Dream Act Shin Lim's Dream Act Shin Lim's Dream Act

Shin Lim is, without doubt, one of the most talked about magicians in the world at the moment. It all stared with his rollercoaster journey through the magic world. In the 2015, Shin Lim was crowned the FISM World Champion of Close up Card magic in Italy. Two weeks later came his big break. On national television in America, Shin performed his Dream Act to a captivated audience. His appearance on Penn & Teller Fool Us rocked him into the limelight and overnight, he became a worldwide phenomenon. The Dream Act was viewed over a million times in under a week and ever since, it has been broadcast all over the world.

The Dream Act is a beautiful, complete act which is magical to its very core. We're sure that when you first saw it, you'd have been as fooled as we were. There is a huge amount of magic packed into only a few minutes but at no point does the act feel rushed. In Shin's own words, it 'transcends the act of trying to fool a spectator by becoming an artistic expression'.

Shin combines ingenious methods, misdirection and music to create a moments which are not only memorable, they are moving and powerful. We were lucky enough to see Shin do his act live at Magi-Fest 2016 and like the rest of the room, we were gasping and infatuated. Shin describes this act as his prized possession and it is easy to see why.

In this 3.5 hour long video tutorial, Shin reveals every detail of the Dream Act. Every effect, method and action is covered in immense detail. And then he explains the concepts of atmosphere, timing, theory, music, and movements and how they are integral when creating a silent routine.

What you get:

  • All gimmicks are included (including custom smoke gimmicks) 
  • Over 3.5 hours of in-depth teaching 
  • USB charger included 

NOTE: It's important that you're aware the the package states that you do not have the rights to perform the routine in its entirety; only individual elements of it. Shin also reserves the television rights for the act. This policy is stated by the manufacturers but we wanted to make our customers aware of these stipulations prior to your purchase. Also, you will need to supply your own force deck and blank faced deck. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Customer reviews for Shin Lim's Dream Act




OK, just kidding. None of that is true. I didn't buy this with either the hope or expectation of becoming a Shin Lim clone. I bought it with the expectation of being exposed to applied cutting edge thinking and have not been disappointed. Even if I don't incorporate a single idea into my act, I have gotten more than my money's worth. The video is very well done and Shin's explanations both of the effects and the theory behind them are superb! This is not a release for dilettantes; both the price point and the content are intended for connoisseurs of the art. If that describes you, this release is a MUST!



My mind was fried when I saw this on P&T Fool Us and after watching the explanation, I am now even more impressed. The act is SO clever and every moment has a reason.
The teaching is really thorough and I have been like a kid at christmas for the las 24 hours playing with all my new 'toys'. This is gimmicked magic at it's very best.
It might be useful to note that SSS isn;t included but it really doesn't matter. There is plenty more to make up for it.
This should be on every magicians 'To Buy List'. It will get ever creative cog in your body turning. Now, how do I give this 6 stars???



Just finished watching through this. Here is my review:
Gimmicks: 9/10
All very well made and even better thought out. Everything is included that you need to perform the routine (excluding SSS but you don't need it so it doesn't really matter). All gimmicks can be used separately for routines that you come up with on your own.

Teaching: 9/10
Shin is a pretty good teacher. At times, he goes very in depth but that's no bad thing. The two guys he does the explanation with are very helpful and add valuable points.

Price: 10/10
For what you get, you are paying a fraction of what it is worth. Even if you don;t plan to perform this, you will have so much fun playing with it.

Now... to go and keep playing!



BUYER BEWARE Would gave an excellent but there is no performance rights on the routine or pieces. The ad only mentions tv rights reserved then you get the instruction and the first thing said is no performance on stages, theatres, cruise ships etc. You might be able to perform for your grandma...SO BE AWARE YOU CANNOT DO THIS IN YOUR SHOWS>>>>>>>>



If you thought you were going to be able and practice this right after getting it you are sorely mistaken. If you thought you were done spending money after 200$ you are sorely mistaken. If you thought you were buying the extra products he has suggested you are sorely mistaken. Those are discontinued. You will see what I mean. I’m upwards of 300$ now and a month later after buying the initial routine I’m still on a wild goose chase for the materials needed. For the price of 200$ i understand you are getting the whole act but the materials they provide you with are of course the bare minimum to get by. Just quite annoying you need to spend upwards of 300$ or even more to be able to practice this. Very hard for walk around as well. Clothing restrictions and placement restrictions.
