I am very happy and delighted to announce that the next Mastering Magic Seminar will be taking place. The date has been set for Saturday 6th May 2017.
This next Seminar is entitled "The Super Session". I created this context to reflect a rigorous conversation about the classic routines and card magic. On this day, we will be focused exclusively on "The Cards to Pocket".
The most famous routine is "The Homing Card" by Frances Carlyle. This routine was published in Stars of Magic and has become the industry standard, the gold standard by which card men are judged. It requires impeccable technique, timing, presentation skill and confidence in audience management and attention control.
The next Seminar will be focused on card to pocket, and cards to pocket as a "Concept". This is one of my favourite plots in card magic; the playing card to impossible location. One of the most famous interpretations of this plot is "The Travelers" made famous by Dai Vernon. I will be sharing my thoughts about this stunning effect and will also feature my interpretation "The Ultimate Travellers".
I really hope you will join us for this conversation. All participants will be required to perform their best routine featuring cards the pocket. This is a safe environment where all of us will be stepping outside our comfort zone. Everyone will receive coaching and creative feedback.
