"One of my secret tools. I must say that I am genuinely upset that Matt let this go." -Andrew Gerard

I want you to imagine that we are at a coffee shop having a conversation. I ask you to move to the other side of the room and write down any 2 or 3 digit number while I look away. I tell you to hold the paper close so no one can see. After a moment of concentration I am able to tell you with 100% accuracy what number you are thinking of.

Now, imagine if I told you it was completely impromptu. A way to reveal a spectator's thoughts without peeks, center tears, impression devices, stooges, or any sort of linguistic deception. Take every overused method and forget them - this isn't it.

Based on a nearly lost concept, this technique was redefined and simplified by Matthew. Similar ideas have cropped up in the past by such names as Karl Fulves, Al Mann, and even Tony Corinda. But, what you're getting here is Matthew's easy to use streamlined version.

Using this technique, YOU NEVER SEE WHAT THE SPECTATOR WRITES DOWN. You're about to discover a practical method for the most realistic, jaw dropping mind reading you can perform.

Other applications of the Technique principal:

- Impromptu drawing duplication of simple shapes
- Numerical values of thought of playing cards
- Realistic demonstration of the standard scientific ESP test
- Key points to consider
- You never see what the spectator writes.
- It is one of the easiest versions of it's kind .
- The principle has multiple applications.
- Bonus Effect included on the DVD

Add to your mentalist arsenal! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 23rd, 2013
An outstanding TOOL in mentalism. There are SO MANY applications! The method is great, and it works 99% of the time. If the really skeptical spectator tries to ruin the trick, Matt gives you a great routine as an out. If you don't like the out provided, with a little creativity, you can definitely create your own. He also includes an AWESOME billet tear (peek not a switch) that I have actually stumped magicians with. Is this product really worth 15 dollars? ABSOLUTELY! Here is why:


1. You don't get 2 tricks on this DVD, you get 2 TOOLS that can be used in your mentalism routine. The applications are only limited to your creativity. Plus, these tools are IMPROMPTU!

2. The quality of this DVD is excellent, as are all the Paper Crane Magic DVDS. The music fits well.

3. The DVD is well organized, with bonus features, and OPTIONAL trailers.

4. You get a practice section on the extras section, and you can see Matt's performances to learn from and study.

5. The ad is EXACTLY as advertized.


In conclusion, Technique has enhanced my performances, given me CRAZY reactions, and some easy to master impromptu miracles. It took me 2 performances to master, and on a level of one to ten in difficulty, it would be a 2! (10 being advanced, 1 being very easy.)

The whole effect is 9/10, because not everything is perfect.

Recommended or not recommended? Definitely Recommended! :)

careful now Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2013
The fact of the matter is, while the concept is easy enough to grasp, it is NOT 100% accurate.. so much so that there's an out included in the dvd. Several factors have to be accounted for before choosing the proper spectator, otherwise you'll have to rely on the out provided (or another out you've prepared.) If this type of mentalism/magic is your thing, by all means its worth a look, but unfortunately I'll be shelving this one.

Maybe but Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 16th, 2014
At first I was excited about this. I practiced with the helpful tests at the end. (however they should have given more trials and more than two people as this is hard to learn without live practice and the video is a great way to sub that. However I went to describe this great thing I was learning to a female friend and she said "Aren't you just able to.." and she had the method without ever seeing it.
So this one got pushed aside since I just was not sure the effort would worth it. I think if you can appear to not be in eye shot, you could use it. I am sure it can work in many situations but without the practice you could fail. They needed more practice sessions with more people to be able to drill .

Epic stuff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 16th, 2013
This was exactly what I was looking for in a mentalist effect. No peeks, No touching the paper, nothing more than a clever guy creating some genius effects...

While I have had a few go wrong I have only been out by a few and it's partially down to my poor spectator management which when I get a new effect it always is because I am concentrating too much on certain areas, that said, my particular style works with it, I like the odd mistake due to the "REAL" effect it kind of gives. Mentalists and magicians alike should have this IMPROMPTU effect in their arsenal... It's easy to learn is an understatement, as for mastering, this again should not be a problem.

I was somewhat disappointed. I found that most people know that you are just looking at how they write it and that anyone can tell what a person is doing. Like most videos you see they always leave a part out so they make sure you buy it then when you get it you know that you were right all along and you get iritated.

It is a nice idea BUT I found it not practical. The person has to do the “thing “ in a certain that I found was hard to have them do with not giving away the effect. I will now try it again.

Technique is so-so Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2013
Truth be told, the hype made me think that I'd be getting something different, perhaps something that I hadn't heard of or thought of before. Now, having said that, Mello's "Technique" is a wonderful way to do something that will rock the audience, provided that you don't let on how it works (which is way too easy to do - you need to be careful!). I like it, I use it, and would only recommend it if you're smart enough to understand the angles and the deception involved, and be able to keep the secret safe!

I think I'm missing something Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2013
Ok, for starters I guessed the method easily and of course said no, it can't be. Well, it was. Now it may just be me but any time you do a trick like this everyone wants to make sure you are not looking at their drawing so you don't see the hand motions (yes you really don't see their hand motions but you have to look at them and they are always checking to make sure you aren't. That basically defeats the trick. I didn't have a good experience with this but that may just be me. I could be missing something. I see this more as an improvement on a basic mentalist method not a new trick. Just my thoughts. Hope it was helpful.
