Both Great Tricks and Great Teaching Report this review

I honestly am not going to use any of his tricks because they don't necessarily fit my style, but that isn't why I watched his presentation. The reason that I watched this was for his teaching more than his tricks, and it was very good teaching. If you are interested in what he teaches, then get this for sure.

Fantastic mix of magic and theory Report this review

Francis is a creative guy who thinks deeply about the theatrics of magic. While the theoritical concepts he brings up arent new per say their use in magic is very uncommon and the way he applies them is fantastic. This lecture can be magic-changing experience for some particularly the Q&A section.

The tricks were ranged between good to fantastic. There're some tricks that you will NOT do due the setup and Francis says this upfront, but seeing the thinking behind what he does is what he tried to convey. There are tricks that you will perform, ranging from dead easy one to some harder coin moves. His card-to-mouth is brilliant, makes me want to get his booklet on the topic right away.

Thats the thing though, many of the tricks were published already somewhere with the exception of two ( on top of my head ), his restaurant opener is a really good transpostion between a card and a napkin thats perfect as a first phase of card-under-glass, however you need a dup to pull it off. Then he goes on into his full restaurant act, which I loved.

Another highlight for me was the way he hands out business cards, such a great an easy way of magically doing it. Small adjustment to a classic trick makes the thing 200% better.

Loads of material were covered in this 3-hour-lecture, I'm going to use many material from here and indeed it clarified lots of theory for me as well.

Highly recommended.

Francis is a rising star in the magic world and he brought his A+ game to the Penguin lecture. He's not about just doing effects, but about upping the game on all your magic performances!
