Annemann's Practical Mental Effects Vol. 6 by Richard Osterlind

Price: $30.00
Out of stock.

Volumes 1, 2 and 3 of Practical Mental Effects has been lauded as the perfect accompaniment to Annemann's age-old classic. On the first three volumes, Richard took effects straight out of the book and used them to completely destroy a modern audience of college students.

On volumes 4, 5 and 6, Richard Osterlind and Jim Sisti return to the same school and do it again, but with many amplified versions of other Practical Mental Effects material. For most of these routines, Richard changed the workings and methods slightly (or sometimes very significantly) to make the effects more direct and streamlined. You will love his thinking!

Additionally, we have added what is possibly the best electronic version of Practical Mental Effects on disc 6. Created specifically for this project, the book was scanned at a high resolution and is entirely searchable. You can open the book on your computer or download a copy to your tablet, smartphone, or e-book reader to enjoy on the go. It's the perfect complement to the material here!

These six volumes truly offer the definitive work on the material from this classic book. There are routines for any situation whether close-up, parlor or stage and, additionally, you will learn classic principles of mentalism which you can apply to your own, original routines. If you ever wondered what this classic material would look like when presented in today's modern world to a contemporary audience, you now have your chance. Every effect is a stunner!

This DVD includes a copy of Annemann's Practical Mental Effects in ebook format as a bonus. In essence, you get the five mentalism effects on the DVD (taught by Osterlind), plus a free copy of Annemann's book. This sets a new standard in DVD mental/magic instructional videos. Osterlind, as always, shares his material generously, providing important performance tips. I will be using the Phantom Artist and Whim of Tituba. They are both highly visual mental effects, which to my mind adds to their impact. I not only suggest you get this DVD, but get the entire set (Volumes 1-6), if your budget permits.

Hi Everyone,

Now for my favourite effects out of volume 6 of Richard Osterlind's Practical Mental Effects.

I found,''Tervil'',''Death Flight'',''The Phantom Artist'' and ''Whim of Tituba'' to be his very best.

I devoured the book in the past but this 6 DVD set sure made me realise the brilliance of Annemann.

A huge thank you must go to Mr Osterlind and Mr Sisti for putting some of Annemann's work ( from the book )on this DVD set.

If you are a lover of mentalism you MUST buy ALL 6 volumes - period.

Frank Agius - full time professional from way back - and still at it.
