"Axel's lecture was fantastic! Everything about the lecture was top-notch. His choice of effects showed a lot of variety and great thought." -Marc DeSouza

"Absolutely brilliant." -Gene Anderson

What did he teach?



The Newsflash story
Axel Hecklau´s version of the torn and restored newspaper is discussed in the magic world as the best version available in the moment. Learn how it was possible to improve a classic.

Just a cup
Another classic that Axel has infused with his ideas and creativity.
This is not a chop cup. Learn a different technique which gives you more flexibility and stronger effects e.g. in the hand of the spectator. This routine is a REAL worker.

3 Fly
Just another 3 Fly routine? Axel explains his thoughts behind his very reduced and clear routine. Why? Because why is more important than how!

OOTW - Xtrem
Out of this world without a table, faster, without switches or leader cards, out of a shuffled, borrowed deck. This is OOTW for extreme conditions.

Digital
A hole travels from one piece of paper to another. A great piece for table hopping and parlor shows.

ONE:Twist
A signed card is torn in two pieces and restored twisted back together.
It´s clear, it´s simple and creates an impossible object as a souvenir for the spectator.

TWO:Fusion
A Queen and a King are torn in the middle. Then half king and a half queen is fused together to an impossible card. Perform this on a wedding party and you will create tears in the eyes of the happy couple.

The napkin rose 2.0
Create a two colored paper rose with no special printed props to buy. It looks even more realistic than the common napkin rose. Learn how Axel Hecklau combines this with a nice card effect in which a spectator finds their card by themself.

Cue Control
Music is an important tool to make your magic stronger. If you perform in a private setting and music starts at the right moment but people cannot see when or how you control the cues, it will raise the impact of your show. Axel will tell you, how you can achieve that kind of magic.

Theory
What points are responsible for the impact of a magic effect and how can you make an effect stronger? Is it ALL about presentation? NO!
Axel Hecklau will give you a check-list to find weak points in your routines. With the help of some simple questions you will be able to improve your routines.

AND...

Tips, tips, tips from the real performers world.

Who is Axel Hecklau?



Axel Hecklau lives in Berlin, Germany. He has presented his lecture in more than 15 countries all over the world e.g. FISM, FFFF, The Magic Castle, Monaco, Barcelona, Magic Circle London, at the French National Convention Paris,Vienna, Rome, and more!

Axel Hecklau has been doing magic for over 30 years. He is a well known working pro in Germany, competed at 15 magic competitions and won 14 awards.

For the past 10 years you can see him in Berlin performing in his own weekly close-up show called Close-Up-Club.

His lecture (parlor, stage and close-up) contains no "B" material. Everything is taken from his active working repertoire and proofed in hundreds of shows in front of laypeople.

Once a year he organizes a youth workshop in Germany to bring young magic enthusiasts together with working pros.

And most important: Everybody is jealous about his mustache :-3

Very good Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2014
This was the first time seeing Hecklau lecture or perform and I have to say he was one of the best that I have seen.His ideas and thinking on the newspaper tear was thought out down to the last detail and he thinks about all of his effect this way.New ideas and very thought provoking.Would like to see more from him.

Another Winner Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 19th, 2014
This is an AWESOME lecture by one of magic's brightest stars. His improvements and presentation on the classics are simply beautiful and superbly thought out.

Every single action he makes, be it to hide a secret move or simply to enhance the effect, has a NATURAL reason for being such that nothing suspicious goes off in your head even when you're burning his hands (which he invites you to).

This means that when the magic happens, you're caught completely off guard. His timing is impeccable and his magic is refreshingly different even though he's doing tricks you've seen before.

His torn and restored newspaper is the BEST version ever created and a true beauty. This is because he is OBSESSED with eliminating every single suspicious move in a particular effect such that even when you know the basic secret to it, you're still completely blown away by not only how smooth the restoration looks at the end, but also how smooth his flipping of the newspapers to show it's normal (without "fighting" with the newspaper's pages that are drawn by gravity to make it difficult for you to flip them, especially the broadsheets), and the actual tearing of the newspaper itself.

He totally eliminated the "2 thumbs behind the newspaper in readiness for a flash restoration" position that must happen in the regular torn and restored newspaper. The end result is the FASTEST and SMOOTHEST newspaper restoration ever seen, as well as the most puzzling one for both magicians and laymen alike.

You'll shake your head in appreciation of this man's genius in so many different ways you can't help but smile throughout the lecture.

Alex Hecklau is funny (although if English were his first language he'll probably be funnier), his gimmicks are INGENIOUS - you've probably never seen them before (watch out for his Chop Cup effect that requires no ring!), and his THINKING on not just the effect but also the way the effect should be presented to get the maximum amazement is simply top notch.

I ended up APPLAUDING him when he ended, right in front of my computer screen, after 200+ minutes of pure entertainment and genius. You will too. Get this lecture now. :-)

Incredibly Entertaining and Valuable! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 19th, 2014
I'm shocked more people aren't buzzing about Axel Hecklau. His lecture was nothing short of life changing! The stunning effects (his T&R newspaper will take your breath away), depth of thinking and detailed routining set a VERY high bar for all of us. If you want to be entertained, fooled and slightly humbled by Axel's commitment to our craft, pick up this lecture!

Mr Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 20th, 2014
Axel Hecklau delivered one of top three lectures I have ever joined at Penguins. Original and high quality magic through combined creativity, presentation, technique and communication. This lecture was really inspiring! Not at least his Tommy Wonder-like search for really magical solutions for technical problems through dedicated hard work. Thank you Axel and God bless you!

Fabulous Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 24th, 2014
I'm an Axel fan and this lecture was a joy to watch. Axel clearly cares about his magic and his thought process has lead to some very creative solutions. Best newspaper tear in the business. Best torn and restored card in the business. Granted, his marketed material is exclusive and expensive but as someone who owns everything he's put out, I can tell you it's worth the asking price. He tips a lot of his marketed material. So know that if you want to do any of them, you will have to go to his site and buy the necessary props. But he also teaches several things that you can do without having to buy anything.

Axel really Excel Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 26th, 2014
Love the man, I was reluctant to buy Axel Hecklau LIVE because I was not familiar with what he was doing, and it was a surprise, he gave an excellent lecture with the great sense of humor , and was excellent on his explanations. Very good magician , his torn and restored news papers was well presented, and is the best on a market. he is an excellent pedagogue and love all his presentation with his large smile and professionalism.

Good but misleading Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 26th, 2014
I thought this was a very entertaining and inspiring lecture from Axel Hecklau but it was also very disappointing and quite misleading..

I was disappointed as there are only 4 tricks in the lecture you can actually perform with out spending Lots of money from his website to buy the correct gimmicks and props to make the effects worth performing, and i had a look on his website after the lecture and it is all expensive stuff!! $$$

for example Cup routine can only be done well with the set he sells on his website For well over $100 for it to be worth performing..
All of his torn and restored card tricks require special cards which only he sells..
He shows you how newsflash works but doesn't actually explain how to do it for yourself ( unless you buy it from him.. )
Although it was all very entertaining and great to watch, i only realised after the lecture that i had literally learned nothing apart from some important theory and stuff about using music..
Although he shows stuff which is worth well over $30 hardly any of it can actually be performed without purchasing it again with the right equipment from his website and this is what spoiled the lecture for me.

Overall i give it 3/5 * as he does share lots of valuable information and is a great performer who is very inspirational to watch and learn from, also the tricks that are impromptu are all nice little effects .
