Amazing ! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 29th, 2012
Guys, this is one of the most amazing lectures i bought from Penguin.
I DIDN'T KNOW MR. FARQUHAR UNTIL NOW.
This lecture is good for the effects and good for the tips that he gave us. So good tips for all level magicians.
This is one of the videos that make me clap my hands in almost all effects.
2 great advices he give us during the lecture are:
- DON'T RUN IF NOBODY IS CHASING YOU!
- EFFECT OVER METHOD !
Buy this lecture and you will understand what I am telling.
To the effects:
- Matrix express. Go to Penguin and see the video. I already know methods of coin matrix, but this is totally different. This matrix is for us magicians. Fool magicians with this kind of matrix. At the end of the video he also explains how to construct the gimmick. But guys, support this man. So clever effect that you should buy this from him.
- Coin across. An incredible easy method. At the end, you use the same gimmick of the first effect to end up clean. So good that you need to see. He tolds that the props comes with the Matrix Express.
- Next effect has 3 phases: oil and water, triumph, and from this point he begins using triumph to separate the colors and the suits. So clever method.
- CD / DVD effect. I liked so much this principle. You can predict an random selected film in an cd that is between the hands of the expectator.
Despite that, he gave more 2 bonus ideas with this same principle
If was only this would be enough, but he didn't stop there.
- The next effect is an invisible deck. When i heard this, i thought with myself : "Oh guy, another 20 minutes of invisible deck". Man, this is really amazing. He uses the invisible deck with the omni deck principle. I never saw this. He also explains what to do if someone caught you with the gimmick in your hand (something that he said never happened to him).
- After that, a version of the trick that fooled Penn and Teller. If you don't saw this, look at YouTube and you will be amazed. He teaches a similar version. Only a different thing about that. You need to see this.
At the end of this trick, he gave a bonus that WORTH'S THE VALUE OF THE VIDEO.
After this he begins with the tips for all levels of magicians.
Before ending, he shows more 2 tricks:
- Torn 2. Again, see the preview here. Fist time i saw an torn and restore with an photo. So fluid. The method is so simple and ingenious.
- The last thing he showed was an effect with an kind of Mullica pocket wallet. It's a little different and he says he plans to release this. You will be able to load the card in an different and visual way.
Guys, from now on this will be an magician that I will follow.
Thanks Mr. Farquhar and Penguin for this lecture!

Shawn is such a creative magician and it is a pleasure to have a little insight into his mind. He shows some great effects and his deck switch is simplistically beautiful! Highly recommend this lecture and his advice on EFFECT over METHOD is very much worth listening to.
I love these live lectures and each one delivers and then some! And for the price you really do get your moneys worth. Keep them coming penguin! (May i suggest a David Stone lecture please!) Oh and Shawn please hurry up on releasing Signed card into sealed box!!

This lecture gave me the foothold to start taking magic more seriously. I'm now gearing up for my first gig, a wedding in December where I will be using at least two of the effects taught in this lecture. Thank you so much Shawn for doing this.

I got to see Shawn lecture in Kansas City and thoroughly enjoyed it. This online lecture now gives me the opportunity to watch and learn from the lecture over and over again so I can pick up all of the little things that often get forgetten when attending a live lecture.
Worth the money, but.... Report this review

...this did feel a bit like an ad for Shawn's other paid tricks. This was my first Live Lecture and I came out of it wanting to buy more of his stuff. He shows off the MatriXpress, for example, and you just don't have the tools to perform that.
With that said, his deck switch, RSVP, his oil & water routine, and the Netflix trick all make this lecture worth the price. His deck switch alone is arguably worth the price of admission. Finally, it's nice to hear his advice and philosophy on magic performance. I would definitely recommend this video if you are in the market for a mixed bag of clever tricks. Note that some of the better ones require a small bit of gimmick construction, but that's par for the course.
Great tips but... Report this review

I thought this lecture had a lot of great theory and concepts, and I already have ideas on how to incorporate a couple of the sleights taught into my act. My one pet-peeve with the lecture is that many of the tricks Shawn covered require an additional purchase, and the ones that don't for the most part require some extra gimmick construction. I think its only fair that magic creators should be able to profit from their hard work, but it bothers me when a lecture is just an advertisement for more expensive products. That said, his ungimmicked routines are VERY strong card magic, and he has some neat tips on how to attract a more upscale clientelle

I was lucky enough to see Shawn's lecture live. But, since he did not have any lecture notes or DVD, I've looked for it and found it here and was really happy with the product. I am a serious magician with 30 years of practice and found his material really easy and intertaining. I sometime find, like in many lectures around, that he keeps some little secrets to him, trying not to expose every subtleties of his work, but with my experience, I can do the math. highly recommended. My only regret is that he did not explain his famous card routine, which I figured out by myself with all the youtube videos we can finf around, but it's not a deal breaker at all!
