What will he teach?



"The Five Aspects Of Close Up"

Mark will discuss five main situations that close-up is used in:

Walkabout (where all audience members are standing),

Table hopping (working at large dinner function tables),

Restaurant (entertaining at small tables in restaurants and hotel dining rooms),

Formal close-up show (one off set piece magic on a close up pad),

Trade show (using close up to promote companies).

For each of the five sections, Mark will be presenting and explaining at least three suitable effects including:

The Reds And The Blacks – a neat and effective combination of the Submarine Card and Oil And Water

Reality Check – killer coin routine for walkabout work with a stunning finish

Assembly Point – a cool coin matrix with a difference

Parade Of The Kings Remixed – a clever re-working of the classic card prediction effect that is smooth and convincing

Mindreading Teddy- a great example of how you can take a random object and devise a memorable routine with it

Co-inci-mental – an up-in-hands commercial colour changing deck routine which is fast and to the point

Great Lecture a must if you do this for a living. His work is short sweet to the point and get out. perfect for bar or restaurant work. Thanks again Penguin, this makes up for a couple of lame lectures that have come up recently.

Some good, some GREAT Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 27th, 2015
This is obviously a performer with a wealth of experience... with magic that may not excite magician-- but audience will love.

Some may be put off by his avuncular persona and humour but, again, I imagine it plays great with his audience.

There is also a terrific balance between theory and effect. Mark sets out his premise of the area of magic performance he's talking about (close-up, walk-around, trade show, etc) and then delivers real world examples of effects that he has doubtless performed 100s or 1000s of times.

For me though, the real gem of this lecture was hidden near the end. I had heard rumours of Mark's Ring on String work for ages but had never seen it. The two moves he shares here were, for me, worth-the-price -of-the-lecture moves.

Simple and Effective Close Up Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 22nd, 2015
Mark Leveridge shares his approach to close up magic, as it applies to:

* Walkabout (where all audience members are standing),
* Table hopping (working at large dinner function tables),
* Restaurant (entertaining at small tables in restaurants and hotel dining rooms),
* Formal close-up show (one off set piece magic on a close up pad),
* Trade show (using close up to promote companies).

The effects themselves are relatively simple and not intended to fool magicians, but rather entertain lay people in the above venues. Mark is both entertaining and fun to watch. If you work in any of the above venues, I think you will find effects to add to your repertoire.
