Hey guys,
I just saw this awesome video. How does he do this? Are there any books/props/dvds to teach this (or parts of it)? Thanks a lot!
Enjoy it:

I would find it unlikely that a single source could instruct you as to how this is done. I believe that this is a combination of methods rather than one single method. It is possible that this is part suggestion based on the trampoline thing. However, it could also be a gimmicked wallet. But, the problem is the piece of paper, there is no way (in my opinion) that he'd be able to write that with some sort of boon writer... at least that legibly.

So basically, all you can do to learn something like this is to either make your own method, or to learn lots of mentalism and combine methods of other effects that you know in order to make this effect possible.

Do also remember that this is an effect filmed for television so it may not be 100% exactly as shown. There could be a few pauses or something that were edited out in order to make it more exciting or in order to disguise a few things that the magician did.

So sorry that I cannot find a resource for you, but keep at it and you'll be able to make your own method of this after a while. Good luck.

Basically a close up confabulation routine. There's no telling what exact method Keith used here but I doubt it's marketed. A method you could use to accomplish this effect is a PW or DW'ing (again not suggesting this is how Keith does it). If you don't know what I mean, it might be worth gettin stuck into some mentalism books.

I'm not sure how he does it but I can think of a way I would do it.

However the real question here is.... do you think there's anything missing from this video?

as usual Bucky is on the money here.

Why thank you. After all, I should be on the money most of the time given that I've been into mentalism for about 6 or 7 years now. And I was lucky, I got here first, otherwise you'd have beaten me to the punch.

well flattery will get you everywhere lol. One thing I like about the mentalism board is that the community is smaller and generally seems more mature than the general magic discussion.

Just another quick thought, if the trick was performed exactly as we see it we should consider where it's being performed. It's not like they could just spring a bunch of cameras on an A list hollywood star and ask him to be a spectator for a trick, which means the trick was filmed either in a studio or at a bar which had been selected and prepared for the performance. There would also be a production crew around. This gives Kieth Barry as much control over the environment around him as it would were he performing the effect on stage so all kinds of things could be going on out of shot.
