yeah iam new to mentalism, but i dont think i know any tricks on mentalism, can you guys give some examples of mentalism tricks?
iam not asking you to revel them just what the spectater sees
Basic mentalism effects are:
-Telepathy (You appear to read the spectator's mind)
-Precognition (You appear to predict a future event)
-Clairvoyance (You appear to be able to see something concealed from view)
-Psychokinesis (You appear to be able to move objects or bend metal with your mind)
With all due respect to the some of the other posters, I feel Luke Jermay is over-rated and is certainly not a good starting point for beginners.
The two bibles of Mentalism are "Practical Mental Effects" by Theodore Annemann and "13 Steps to Mentalism" by Corinda. Annemann's book may seem a bit dated and dry but it is the traditional starting point for mentalists and contains effects that continue to be embraced and performed by mentalists today. "13 Steps" is a bit more accessible if you grow impatient with Annemann. After you tackle these books I suggest Banachek's "Psychological Subtleties" which does not contain many effects per se but is a goldmine of presentational ideas.
The DVDs I would recommend after
you read some of the above material would be Richard Osterlind's MIND MYSTERIES and Max Maven's VIDEOMIND. Both give very thorough explanations of the effects shown. Max Maven also displays an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of mentalism as he discusses the roots of each effect.
If you're in a hurry and are not keen on reading large books, Richard Osterlind also has a series of DVDs called EASY TO MASTER MENTAL MIRACLES. These videos focus on classic effects for the beginning mentalist and may be your ideal starting point.
