Juan Tamariz, a world famous expert in the field of Card Magic, presents this 75 minute lecture where he imparts a part of his vast knowledge, to an appreciative audience of top magicians. As you watch the dedicated audience applaud every routine and take in every word, you'll begin to feel like you are in the room with them. Don't miss this chance to learn from the very best!
The first part of this recording is an entertaining performance in pure Tamariz style (as a bonus, this first part can be shown to your friends as a magical treat, without divulging any secrets). Juan takes us through routine after routine of excellent magic followed by some in depth explanation with invaluable knowledge for any card worker. He starts with a shuffled/un-shuffled routine, whereby a completely shuffled deck is bit-by-bit un-shuffled to an audience members requests. Spectator Locator:- In this, a freely selected card is amazingly revealed by a spectator who has his back turned throughout the routine. Three card Surprise:- An entertaining routine where Three 3's change into three 7's and then melt into just one totally different card. As you would expect with Tamariz, there's an excellent memory routine. A brilliant Follow The Leader (Tamariz style). Four Card Prediction:- Four predictions match four cards (Predictions written before the cards are chosen). Cards Across:- One by one three cards travel from one spectator to another, a superb method that defies explanation (until revealed later in the lecture). All this, plus a not to be missed demonstration of Colour Change Knives.
This performance is followed by some in depth explanation, invaluable to any student of Card Magic. The explained routines are Spectator Locator, Three Card Surprise, & Cards Across, but this is more than just an explanation of these three routines, this is a detailed explanation containing many tips and advice suitable to the performance of all card magic.
Running Time Approximately 1hr 15min
This is the 2nd lecture for the MacMillan family by world famous card expert Juan Tamariz. In this Juan Tamariz presents a full 100 minutes of entertaining and totally baffling card magic.
The lecture begins with ˜Four Card Prediction': This is an excellent effect whereby 4 predictions are written before 4 cards are selected (no force) yet all four predictions match the cards. Next is an extremely entertaining routine entitled ˜Same Trick Twice': In this Tamariz claims he'll perform the exact same trick twice (breaking the magicians rules), he then proceeds to do just this accompanied by roars of laughter (you have to watch to see why) and a surprise finish! There are mind blowing versions of ˜Oil & Water'. An excellent ˜Estimation' effect, during which Tamariz does more than estimate the quantity of cards removed from a shuffled deck, he predicts how many are face up and face down and then proceeds to name each card. ˜Hypnotic Cards' is a routine where different spectators choose different cards yet all see the same card, then the whole pack is shown to be an entirely different card, blink your eyes and they change to another card, snap your fingers and all 52 cards are back again watch this and you'll feel he's hypnotised you too! Then there's ˜The Three Coincidences': A trick involving two spectators with two packs of cards, watch as incredible coincidences take place between them. Finally, he performs ˜Follow The Leader': With much hilarity, ten red & ten black cards change places one at a time.
"Follow The Leader" & "Same Trick Twice" are both fully explained. But, this is much more than just a performance and explanation of magic, there's an in-depth teaching on Comedy in Magic. Here Tamariz delves into how to make Comedy, various levels of it and more importantly, when to use it! All this plus details on Theory & Misdirection in Magic.
An incredible lecture by one of the true masters of Magic, Juan Tamariz.
