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.

I absolutely love watching Shawn perform. He is a funny guy with great effects. This lecture is nothing short of amazing. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner, or a seasoned professional, you need to watch this lecture. He explains, in detail, a number of concepts and effects. One of the best lectures that I have purchased!

Hell Magic Friends,

Shawn is one of the coolest magicians I have ever seen and personally met. He makes everything he does look effortless and enjoyable. The thing I love most about Shawn is that he looks like his having fun whether the crowd is or not. But they are having fun because "How could you NOT love this guy."

Shawn teaches a few illusions on this site that I already own from him, yet I walked away much richer for buying this Letcher. You will not be disappointed in anyway with Shawn's approach to some of his own effects. And the cool thing is that he has made them available for us at Penguin Magic. So if you see something you really like but don't have the means to create it yourself, Shawn has already done all of the dirty work for you. FANTASTIC.

Looking for the secret to the card trick that fooled Penn & Teller? Sorry, but he gives you a method that is just as impressive to the lay person and magicians alike.

"Buy It" and you will "Love It."

I hope that this helps,

The Magic Doc

Worth the money, but.... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 15th, 2016
...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.
