A radical and new thinker in the world of close-up magic and mentalism. Derren performs forty-five minutes of hardcore mind-reading and close-up hypnosis. Volunteers are slammed into trance-states, achieving bizarre mental connections with each other in some mind blowing routines that are now earning Derren a dynamic reputation. The following effects are performed:

LIFT: A spectator’s arm is immobilised. Then controlled remotely, by the will of another volunteer.

PLEROPHORIA: A deck of cards is thoroughly shuffled by a spectator yet Derren, while facing away, names each card in order.

SMOKE: An incredible routine, where a card that has been merely thought of by a spectator, is first named by Derren then disappears from an untouched deck only to impossibly appear...well, wait and see.

COIN READING AND BENDING: The date and denomination of a volunteer’s coin, unseen and untouched by Derren, is identified. Then slowly bent at the will of another volunteer.

REMINISCENCE: A hypnotised spectator merely thinks of a memory, a number and a picture. All are then perfectly described in immense detail by both Derren and audience members. This mind-blowing routine is Derren at his very best.

The performance is followed by an explanation of Plerophoria and a demonstration of mentally forcing an imaginary card, plus some extremely valuable discussions on presentation and Derren’s philosophy of ‘Invisible Compromise’. An immensely useful video for both the budding and established mentalist.

This is a fantastic dvd, especially if you like derren brown. It is the film from a lecture derren gave where he discusses a lot of the psychological aspects of his material. He performs a variety of effects but you only see 1 real explanation. The discussion of the philosophy, psychology and motivation behind the methods is extremely valuable. If you are interested in pure, psychological mentalism then this is a must.

this is an excellent insight into derrens work and figuring out how he does what he does. the card routine he teaches is amazing, but you should note he only teaches one effect. the rest is an awesome performance and some notes.

This is an excillent DVD showing some new Derren effects that will wow and amaze you. Over the past few years this type of suggestive showmanship magic has grown into each little miricle. He arrives again with his brand of pure magic endorsing Magic, misdirection, suggestion, misdirection and showmanship. You will be putting thoughts of cards into peoples heads, remembering a shuffled deck of cards and visually seeing how many cards have been cut from the deck in seconds. This DVD is what weve all be waiting for besides the late arrival of his terrific books. So add this to your mentalist collection and get Browned Just once in your life....ADD TO CART!
