"I received your materials and I'd just like to say that I am thoroughly impressed with all of it. Why you are not more well-known in the magic community is amazing to me. The thing I'm most impressed with is your straight-line methods to achieve the effect with no confusing detours or extra details that will distract from the impact. Over the years, that's how I've learned to distinguish performers who perform for the public (read: real people) from those who make their living basically creating effects or writing books for the magic community but never actually perform for laypeople on a regular basis." - Jim Sisti Publisher of The Magic Menu, The Journal for Professional Restaurant and Bar Magicians

"Without a doubt one of the best lectures I have seen for the working pro. Please come back!" - Stan Alexander, Albuquerque

What will he teach?

Open & Shut - one of my most popular effects ever. It's sort-of a mix of ACAAN and the Open Prediction, while being neither. A brain crusher!

It's Hammer Time! - Being revealed on video here for the first time ever. A very commercial and fun handling of the classic 'Seven Keys To Baldpate' plot with loads of room for fun in the presentation. Plus it is 100% examinable.

Will The Persiflage Coalesce? - My take on Larry Becker's classic 'Will The Jokes Match?' that takes it a step further.

Do That Voodoo - A wonderfully bizarre effect using a genuine voodoo doll and some minor pyrotechnics. This is a worker for those who like a bit of an edge.

A Work of Art - A wonderful take on the classic design duplication plot that is so easy it's almost criminal.

A Confabulous Vacation - My take on Shaxon's classic Confabulation plot, with a kicker that no one sees coming.

...and much more...

Who is he?

Mark Strivings is 20+ year full-time pro out of the Denver area where he performs upwards of 450 shows per year. He first came to real prominence in the magic world in the mid 90's with the publication of 'Mobile Mentalism', at the time the largest compendium of material for the strolling mentalist, and the publication which basically started the strolling mentalism movement worldwide.

He is also the creator of the legendary (and recently re-released) Sight Unseen Case, universally lauded as one of the most useful tools a mentalist can possibly have and used by a literal "Who's Who" in the world of magic and mentalism. He has written over 25 books, released nearly 20 videos and has had over 60 limited release commercial items. Mark's material is being used by top pros (and amateurs as well) literally all around the world.

If you could ask ONE question to one of the world's most creative professional magicians, what would it be?

I like the voodoo trick. It fits my tastes for bizarre or strange magic.

I was totally fooled by his open prediction trick. It's a great trick to show your friends at the magic club.

There's some great tricks here and I enjoy the theatricality of juju dolls, wooden boxes and keys.

Initially, I was off put by the amount of mentalism, but they are legitimately good tricks!
