Magician Holds Back, Lecture Suffers Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 31st, 2012
In this 2 hours, 33 mins lecture, Eric Jones performs a selection of mainly close-up material, entirely with coins and cards. Roughly a third of the lecture focuses on gimmicks (magnetic flipper coin with shell, as well as Erics own Twizted card gimmick). Another third of the lecture is dedicated to moves that arent stand-alone routines. In my opinion, the lecture suffers a bit from a lack of fully-routined, impromptu (or, no-extra-purchase-necessary) material. It doesnt help that following his 3-Fly routine, Eric wanders away from the explanation and never returns. By finishing the magic portion in under 2 hours, and focusing a considerable portion of the lecture on tricks that rely on not-your-everyday-average gimmicks and including filler type material, this lecture is underwhelming. Moderated by Dan Hauss.
Includes the following:
1. Fingertips pt. 1 (also referred to as Oxy-Clean Coin Routine) Standing 3-coin Production and Vanish. This is a pretty and magical sequence that relies on aforementioned gimmicked coin as well as a clever and simple hold-out that you can make for about . The gimmick is for use with short or rolled sleeves.
2. Bare-Handed 4-Coin Assembly this routine is performed on a close-up mat on the floor, with spectators looking down. It features a clever palming technique that is as clean-looking as it gets. The first 3 coin transfers are great, but the last one-to me-looked like he was doing exactly what he was doing.
3. Various tricks using the Twizted card gimmick This gimmick is available for purchase ().
4. Passless Pass This is a sleightless card control which relies on a spatial discrepancy. While Im sure this flies by many people, I also believe some people can see right through it. Further, as Eric says himself, it fools the spectator by confusing him. I dont agree that this is a good approach.
5. Oil and Water In this version, by Woody Aragon, the separation of mixed cards is self-working. Eric directs the spectators to push card packets together, themselves; colors then separate. This is a very clever idea. It should be noted, however, that a crimp is necessary, and the crimp is noticeable during the routine.
6. Marionette Coin Count In this false coin count, 3 coins effectively masquerade as four. The handling is very natural, and when positioned properly within a fully orbed trickas it is in Audio, available separatelycan make a marvel of a routine.
7. 3-Fly Performance only. Unfortunately, and contrary to what the first reviewerMagic Tia, from Italywrote, this is NOT explained. Eric opens by telling us this is a favorite and teaches it in every lecture. However, after the routine, he seems to get sidetracked by a request to cover a flourish featured in the routine. Eric goes on to teach a single coin roll (down the arm). Unfortunately, he does not return to 3-Fly.
8. Quarter/Penny Transpo (Scott Robinson) This is a simple, impromptu, in-the-hands transposition that doesnt need any extra coins. Cute, quick, not mind-blowing.
9. Card Translocation Trick This trick packs a wallop and seemed to stun the audience. Basically, a card is selectedbut not removed from the deckthrough a bit of procedure (think Overkill, by Paul Harris), then cleanly vanishes from the deck. Selection appears face-up, in packet spectator has held from the beginning (before the card was selected), which the performer has NEVER touched. This is a very strong moment, and will fool laypeople and magicians alike. However, for lay-audiences there are simpler methods for achieving the effect of a card or cards appearing in a card-packet held by the spectator. I would choose Paul Harris Las Vegas Leaper, which generates a similar response, but which can be done impromptu. Erics trick requires a (common) gaffed card and simple set-up.
10. Absolutely Brilliant Group Participation Card Trick Without a Name This trick (again, by Woody Aragon) was the gem of the lecture, for me. In fact, its probably the only thing here that I would use, but I would use the heck out of it. Each person in the room chooses 4 cards. The cards are fairly mixed, torn in half and mixed further. 1 piece is set aside. The remaining pieces are mixed, traded among friends, thrown in the air and lost until only 1 piece remains. The piece each person ends up with matches the piece put aside at the beginning. This could be gold for a stand-up performer, as you can involve every person in the room. Easy to apply a motivational theme, company concept, tarot, holiday, anything.
11. El Cambio Nada Card color change from Extension of Me/Theory 11. Pretty, done at high chest level, with performers face in the frame. Drawback is that you have to handle a single card with two hands.
12. Eclipse Card control. Very nice control inspired by Harry Loraynes Ultra-Move (which I dont know, so I cant compare.) With angle issues on both sides, this move is only meant for audiences head-on. This restriction aside, it is very clean-looking.
13. Elevator Cut Flourishy card cut, based on Karrel Foxs Butterfly Cut. Pretty. Not a false cut, although Eric shows how one can adjust for a false cut.
14. Enigma Change Copper/Silver coin transformation. In the hands, chest-level transformation for a head-on audience. Nice little move.
In conclusion, although Eric is a fine magician, he held back on this lecture. Considering the lack of fully formed, no-extra-purchase-necessary routines, I feel Audio should have been included and 3-Fly should have been taught. The strongest material was straight from Woody Aragon's new book, which is probably what I should have bought. On the other hand, if you own or are interested in the magnetic flipper coin and shell, and Erics Twizted card, then this lecture will be more valuable to you.
Eric's excellent lecture Report this review

Eric is very effective in his teaching. He provides a great environment to learn magic and has great sleight of hand skills in that he explained the concepts very well and was able to explain in more than one way.
Great tricks Report this review

If you want to spend on gimmicks it's 4 U ( shells & twisted by Eric ) some other card tricks (none gimmicked come in pretty handy. I already do svca (3fly) & audio color Chang will work with other tricks & face up or down changes. U spend between 60 up to 100 bucks on gimmicks pending on wut coin gimmick U use. But 4 the effects its worth it if U perform. I agree there's too many gimmicks but it will giv U extra ideas in creating some tricks or using them with tricks might already kno. Good lecture Eric

Silky sleight of hands and fateful self workings Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 11th, 2012
Great, anyway great. You can learn his great sleight of hands, and self-working effects as well. The self workings are from Woody Aragon, so both of sleight-of-hand effect and self-working effect are totally in the bag.

Fantastic. I have seen Eric lecture lives and of course you forget half of what he teaches what a bargain this is. It is like seeing Eric over and over again while getting the lecture notes too. Great concept. Not to mention the high quality of magic that Eric teaches. Real worker stuff. Keep up the great work on this lecture series.

A little too much talking and not enough tricks.However the tricks that are on here are all killers. I mean you will seriously fool people with these,including other magicians.
Most are easy to do--except for the audio move which needs a lot of practice to get the knack.
He uses material from his friend Woody Aragon and they was the best card tricks I have seen in a long time.
Overall,this has excellent material you will use--- but I would have liked more.
