"This is the close up table Act that Roberto Giobbi has used professionally to make a living for many years. Even if you are familiar with the classic effects Giobbi uses, you will find valuable ideas, insight, and tips that only come from years of honing and perfecting them. Giobbi makes the classics better. Highly recommended." - Tim Trono

'Roberto Giobbi’s brilliant lectures are clear and pedagogical, based on immense knowledge in magic. Roberto Giobbi is a true connoisseur in many fields. He doesn’t serve you a quick meal. Rather his menu in magic begins with a tasteful starter, followed by a powerful main course and an exciting dessert. When he talks you listen and when he handles the cards he really catches your attention and creates the essence of attractive magic. Roberto Giobbi’s card work can be characterized in a few words: Elegant simplicity with economizing of moves, delicate misdirection guided by a powerful logic story."-Lennart Green 

"Roberto – You are an inspiration to thinking magicians everywhere." -Pete McCabe 

"Roberto Giobbi is the perfect combination of scholar' teacher' and performer. As a scholar he has studied the literature of card magic, examining the best effects, methods and techniques. As a teacher, he has (in his Card College series) organized this material in a logical, structured way that effectively leads the student along the path toward mastery. As a performer he knows the importance of presentation, management, and psychology and he has incorporated this information in his books. Through these accomplishments, Roberto Giobbi has become one of the most important voices of 2Ist Century conjuring." -Michael Close 

"There is not a magician alive today who wouldn't benefit from studying Mr. Giobbi...He's kind of the King Midas of card effects. His touch on classic plots turns them to gold." -Jeff Stone 

 

What will he teach? 

This is the close up Act Roberto has been using professionally for 25-30 years for real paying audiences.

The Act:

Professional Paper to Money

Torn & Restored Thread

Sponges - Sponge ball and Bowl Routine

Ring to Wallet Routine

 

Who is he?

Roberto Giobbi has an international reputation as one of the finest teachers of magic ever known. Of course, we all know him as the author of the bestselling Card College series, which is the most widely translated text in the history of magic and considered globally as the ultimate reference work for card magicians everywhere. He's also written for over 50 magic magazines worldwide and has received the coveted Literary Fellowship from the Academy of Magical Arts. If that wasn't impressive enough, he's been twice a FISM-winner. In 2014 the Magic Circle of London bestowed upon him their John Nevil Maskelyne Literary Prize, and in 2015 he received the The FISM Special Award for Theory & Philosophy. Roberto Giobbi is a master of the technical, psychological, and dramatic foundations of all excellent magic.

True. None of these tricks are even remotely new. Paper to Money, Gypsy Thread, Cups and Balls, Sponge Balls, Ring on Rope, and Ring to Envelope are all classics in their own right. But don't be turned off by their familiarity. Roberto will not just show methods, but the decisions that have to be made during practice and performance to make these classics shine.

I was thrown off too by how common the illusions were that Roberto decided to perform. But that's the way it is with most who perform regularly. We pick the illusions we know best—those that have become second nature—to perform. And truly, how many people actually perform these classics on a regular basis?! Not many. Why? Most people have not put in the time and thought necessary to make these classics look like true miracles. They are straight-forward miracles, but most are unaware of the pitfalls and disasters that can occur while performing them.

If you are wanting to figure out what it takes to actually perform all the illusions that you're buying these days, this lecture will certainly help you see the road to get there. But of course, the long road of practicing and performing you'll have to take yourself.

This is the 3rd lecture I've seen from Roberto and I find his understanding of the fundamentals and performance of illusions and sleight of hand are of the highest caliber.

Roberto is the best Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 7th, 2019
If you want to take your magic to the next level, there is no one who is better to listen to than Mr. Giobbi. He thinks very deeply about his magic and is a philosopher at heart.
One nice thing here is that "Mr. Card College" does his entire act with no cards. This alone makes the lecture great. I buy everything that Mr. Giobbi puts out and have never been disappointed. His effects are clear, his instructions impeccable, and his thinking behind the tricks is worthy of Aristotle.
Highly, Highly recommended!

if you want to learn new "tricks", search for other videos!

if you want to improve your own magic, listen and adapt what Roberto says to your own repertoire.

This video is for magicians, not for tricksters.

Half of the material was already published in a previous DVD (bowl and sponge balls, envelope in wallet...) Interesting however for the few who never assist to a lecture by Roberto Giobbi...but a bit boring for the others as there is too much pseudo-intelectual talk with always the same "concepts" and citations
