Filmed in the summer 2010 this DVD has been eagerly awaited by many magicians and when you see the routines you know why!
This 2 DVD Disc set is jam packed with commercial material.
Not only will you learn a full stand up show packed with hard hitting visual magic but Thom also teaches some of his pet close up routines.
You really are going to love what you see on these discs. These are routines that Thom has performed and honed over 1000's of performances worldwide.
There are so many effects on this collection that alone would be worth the price of the entire set. Talk about getting value for money!!
Here Are Just A Few of the Routines Included This DVD Set
Stand Up Show
This really is a killer of an opener and visual magic at its best. Telling a story about starting your own lemonade stand you produce a lemon. This gets a great reaction but the kicker will floor your audience as you now produce a full glass of Lemonade!!
One of the most visual spoon bends I have ever seen and the best part is you can give the bent spoon away afterwards!!
Revenge of the Spoon
This is a great follow up to Spooning. You draw a picture of a straight spoon (which your spectator signs) and you now make the drawing of the spoon bend!! The best part is you can tear the sheet of paper containing the bent spoon and your spectator's signature off and give it to them as a souvenir
Ring In Kinder Egg
WOW this really is one the most commercial versions of ring to impossible location I have ever seen and it make perfect sense!
A fantastic triple prediction routine, that takes your audience on an imaginary trip to a Las Vegas casino. Talk about packs small, plays big! This effect can be performed in also any conditions including close up!
Close Up effects taught include: Pool Ball, Card Stab and Fish Tales
All performances are filmed in a real world environment with studio explanations in detail. If you are already a working pro or wanting to become one, then THIS IS THE DVD SET FOR YOU!
