Back To Basics – The Lecture

 Lecture Overview:

I’m going to show you a number of simple  basic  affects using cards thimbles rope, balls and doves - things that I actually do and use on-stage and in close-up situations. I’m going to take you through those - quickly - and if you get the lecture notes – in pdf format on the DVD you will also be able to watch short Quicktime clips of these effects/routines.


Now - if you see an effect or routine with the word  SECRET  next to it, or I say, “this is a SECRET”  I am going to ask that you … not talk about  this outside the lecture, or demo, or attempt to show a friend  - until after my performance (if I am …). And should you purchase a particular item I am selling and the lecture notes (on CD or DVD), I will ask that you do not show it, share it, practice in front of others, or demo any of the items, again, identified as “secrets” until after my performance.


You will get an inside look at these things … and I’d like to have those who do not come to the lecture experience the “magic” without prior knowledge.
