Classic Magic of Michael Vincent
Who is he?
There are very few magicians who posses the magical combination of superlative sleight of hand and great theatrical presentation, Michael Vincent is one of the chosen few.
Over the last twenty years, Michael has earned the enviable reputation of being among the top elite of magicians and sleight of hand artist in the world. His sublime magic has been featured at numerous venues around the world for top corporations and international celebrities. He would be the first to admit that great technique counts for nothing if it not supported by a meaningful presentation.
“I believe that great sleight of hand magic combined with a good plot and presentation can make all the difference between the audiences acknowledging that they have experienced something extraordinary.”
It is this simple philosophy has defined Michael’s place in the history of magic. His magic is a tribute to the wonderful artist who inspired him as a youngster. Magicians who were his mentors; Alan Alan, Harry Lorayne, Cy Endfield (Director of the Movie ZULU), Tony Slydini, Derek Dingle, Darwin Ortiz, Larry Jennings and Michael Skinner. Michael was fortunate to meet his heroes and to study the of magic with them. Part of Michael’s on going legacy is to continue the chain of excellence these great master passed on to him.

If you work with cards and you don't buy this lecture... You are nuts,2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
Michael is one of the best card handler's today and makes everything look magical. He also teaches a MUCH easier version (for those of you who remember Carney's) of the slot machine effect which is amazing.
I loved every second of the lecture and will watch this a lot more. Most of Michael's work can be done with a borrowed deck and so well constructed you are EXTREMELY far ahead.
I love Kismet and is one of the best card effects you can do. If you like the lecture I really suggest you go out and pick up Michael's DVD's and anything else he does.
And next week is Roberto Giobbi! It's a good month to be a card guy :-)

This is a great lecture, whether you are a beginner or an advanced card magician.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Michael Vincent is passionate about good sleight of hand – and about teaching it. This passion shows throughout the lecture.
While many of the routines have been featured on the DVD sets published by Alakazam, the instructions and performances here benefit from great camera work and lighting and comparatively more close-up shots.
Those who own the DVDs will benefit from added new insights, handling points and routines not taught before. ‘Be Honest – What Is It?’ (‘Two Card Monte’), for example, is taught here in exceptional detail and the many magicians performing this in a hurried manner would do good to buy this lecture and heed Michael Vincent’s advice on the use of gaze and body movement. Victor Farelli’s ‘Up His Sleeve’ (with an additional second phase inspired by Darwin Ortiz) was performed, but not taught, on one of the DVDs, but is fully taught here. It is a fabulous routine that would be very suitable for walk around magic. ‘Pasteboard Larceny’ is an outstanding poker routine starting with a genuinely shuffled deck and appears here for the first time.
To those who are new to the magic of Michael Vincent, this lecture is a fantastic introduction and a very handy compendium of some of his strongest pieces, ranging in difficulty from easy (‘Kismet’) to advanced (‘4Play with Foursome’, one of the most powerful card routines you can do).
Finally, anyone will benefit from Michael’s views on how to master sleight of hand, which close the lecture.

Michael is a master of his arts.1 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
His instructions are clear and wonderfully performed.
If you are not a card magician, do NOT let this
performance slip away.
Watching his professionalism and how he handles cards will
will show you how "The Masters" perform and this will help with your Magical Art.
This is simply not a download to let slip by.

Michael Vincent is one of the best magicians alive today and possesses sleight of hand on par with the likes of Ricky Jay, Jason England, and Darwin Ortiz. The effects taught during this four hour lecture range from incredibly easy (Intuition Spell, Kismet) to finger-breaking advanced (4play with Foursome, Pasteboard Larceny). Every single trick taught here is a real worker and they all have tested with great reactions from my spectators. Michael is a great teacher and leaves no stone unturned. He does, however, get a little mixed up when he explains pasteboard larceny but the download comes with a pdf containing written instructions for the effect so you don't miss out on the outstanding routine. In short, I have never gotten so much use out of a lecture before in my life and I highly recommend it to any card magician.

This is the cleanest card magic i have ever seen. This will blow your mind.
This is professional card magic at its best just wonderfull to watch.
But very hard to master.
Most tricks use a standard card deck, no trick decks or trick cards involved. Just slide of hand.

This is one hardcore lecture, definitely not for the beginner.
Getting that aside, this lecture was worth every penny, and it really changed my mindset about how and why I do magic. He goes how to make card magic memorable, and he teaches some really amazing (if quite difficult and involved) stand up and parlour tricks which have immediately gone into my repertoire.
If you do classic card magic, there is no finer lecture. He talks about books that influenced him, and at the end he does a breath taking 4 signed card Traveller which I am still piecing together. (It was never explained, but the method is literally staring you in the face.)
Amazing, incredible and game changing. I really do think that is the best lecture I've ever purchased. Thank you very much to Michael Vincent for this well thought out AND presented lecture. It was a gold mine.

This is a great video. He starts simple and gets progressively more complex. The routines he performs simply are stunning and you will learn A LOT. Must see. His demeanor and approach to getting people to learn is just right.
Very Precise!!! Report this review

Michael Vincent has OCD. OCD in a good way because he looks at every single thing. He is a MASTER in Sleight of Hand magic.

I thouroughly enjoyed Michaels lecture. He was crystal clear in his performances and explanations. I learned a lot also from his theory's he shared with us. If he does another lecture I will def be watching. I don't really care about learning new tricks because I have hundreds I have that I can learn. What I took from this is how a professional performs and treats people. He seems like a very warm and nice person which comes through in all aspects of his performance. It was a priveledge to watch his lecture for sure.
