Mastering Billets with Marc Paul.

Billet work has long been called "The Cornerstone of Mentalism" and quite rightly so; with just a few pieces of paper, a pen and knowledge of the correct technique you can pretty much do all of the classic effects in mentalism.

This is a four week course that has been specially created to teach you visually deceptive billet technique. Each week is designed to build on previous weeks so that by the end of the course you will have everything that you need to know about the fundamentals of billet work. But Marc won't just be teaching you the moves he'll also show you routines using those moves so that when mastered you can put them straight into your close-up and stage shows.

Week 1

The best size, shape and card for billet work.
The Billet Fold
The classic Annemann Billet Switch.
Modifying the Annemann Switch into a creasing switch
The Secret Read (in the open and concealed)
A complete routine: Marc's Triple Billet Test; a block buster, three-phase routine based on Annemann's Telepathy Plus but with a totally reworked method and NO VISIBLE one-ahead!

Week 2

The Opening & Closing Switches
The Shuttle Pass / Temple Switch
The No Memory Read
A complete routine: Marc's go to, any time, any place mind-reading system. A workhorse system, that easily enables you to read two minds at once. This also features a way of handling information that is too difficult to remember, like 11 digit phone numbers!

Week 3 (With this one technique alone, you can build the reputation of a master mind reader!)

The perfect move for any situation...
The Fold
Justifying the hot area
The Centre Tear (instant access and / or steal using the same technique)
A complete routine: Cassidy's "Name & Place" using a Centre Tear (Yet another amazing routine that you need to know!)

Week 4

Billets and envelopes:
Envelope sizes and type.
The Shaxon Flap
The classic envelope switch and read.
A complete routine: Marc's Double Blind Drawing Duplication, a flexible system that Marc uses almost every show.

Supplies needed for class:

stack of standard size 5 x 3 inch index cards
a few Jokers
a pair of scissors

Mind Reading using folded papers and envelops Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 14th, 2021
Marc’s Mastering Billets class has been very educational. He is an excellent teacher and communicator. His explanations have been clear and to the point. Each week he is covering various billet techniques. He follows up each week after class and provides videos and pdfs to allow for repeated practice and reviews of the material he taught. Marc and Penguin Magic are setting a high bar and I believe this structured approach for small groups has a future and can be expanded on. With Covid still causing major health concerns and disruption in our lives this is a safe and effective teaching process. I think we are getting a good value for what it costs us and would recommend this class.

Marc Paul Rocks ! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 29th, 2021
Marc Paul knows the how, why, what and where of billet work like the back of his hand. His methods are flawless and the routines he taught us were like real mind reading. Not only did we get live teaching in a small class setting but were also given videos of the moves and routines for later review. The videos are a very special bonus and I am thankful for that.
Marc came well prepared for each class . He taught the moves and routines diligently and answered all questions patiently. There was no fluff , just solid material. I am glad that I signed up for Marc's class and hope that Penguinmagic brings him back again.
Marc Paul rocks !

Marc Paul was incredibility generous with both his expertise and time. In addition to the core-course content he answered wide-ranging questions and provided wide-ranging advice. The quality of the instruction was excellent and he provided substantial supplementary materials. The highly interactive nature of this course was a great experience. Highly recommended 5/5 stars. Thanks Paul!

To know & to be able to teach Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 28th, 2021
I have been fortunate to have studied under masters in several disciplines and Marc is surely a master.
However, being a master of a discipline, be it mentalism, a martial art, something else, does not mean you are able to teach what you know.
Marc is a teacher. He presented materials in a way as to enable the student to learn.
That is a great talent and I look forward to studying with him again.

Amazing Course Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 28th, 2021
It shouldn't really be a surprise that the material that Marc shares in the course was amazing (all of his released material has been), but the teaching of the billet handling and the amazing closer routine shared in the last session was definitely worth more than the price for me.

The format of the course allowed for some additional hints, tips and ideas to come through and I hope that Marc is able to host more courses in the future - I would sign up in an instant and encourage anyone who has any interest in learning from a true pro to do the same!

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 28th, 2021
A masters class in billet work! I can't praise this workshop enough.

The routines alone are worth the price. And Marc's tips along the way are obviously from someone who has worked them for years.

Thanks Marc and Penguin!

Excellent Instructor & Mentalist! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 28th, 2021
Mr. Paul is an excellent instructor and mentalist, who does an amazing job not only performing his mentalism, but also explaining it exceptionally well. He is able to make complicated billet and center-tear sleights much easier to understand and perform flawlessly, answer everyone's questions, and explain things again to ensure that we are all able to confidently perform the mentalism miracles that he teaches. He shares all of his mentalism secrets and details when it comes to billets, center-tears, envelopes, and even happily shares additional bonus material (such as on peek wallets), that was originally not part of the syllabus. I really appreciated this extra, as Marc's teaching on the peek wallet made me much more comfortable and confident in using my peek wallet more often.

All in all, Marc Paul is a great instructor, this Mastering Billets class is a pure MUST, and this Zoom classroom platform is an excellent for learning in a way that allows for personalized attention and sharing of ideas. He really knocked this Mastering Billets series out of the park and went above and beyond in sharing everything he has perfected in his years of experience. Also of importance, is that Mr. Paul also makes separate and additional lecture-style recordings of all of the moves and lessons that he teaches during the live class and then uploads them to your Penguin account. This makes it much much easier to learn and perfect the moves after the live class, without worrying about note-taking, and while always having the separate recordings to refer to later. I highly, highly recommend that you sign up for this class should it be offered again in the future, or any other class taught by Marc Paul!

Thank you for such an excellent course, Mr. Paul, and I hope you will offer additional classes with the Penguin Magic School, as I will sign up for any other classes that you would like to teach. Best regards!

Highest Recommendation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 28th, 2021
Marc shared close up, stage and parlor routines that he has performed hundreds of times. The billet techniques are superb and they are utilized in routines that are incredibly well constructed. We also discussed why Marc has chosen to structure the routines in the way that he has in order to maximize their impact on an audience. This is the best purchase I have made in a very long time.
