The fewer limits we impose the more control we must have. The goal is for there to be no (apparent) limits placed on the spectators and to seem to have no control over his actions. - Mark Elsdon


The Doktor recently read this in the instructions to Mark Elsdon "The One With The Trivial Pursuit Cards".

Although not a fan of the trick (sorry) these words hit me like a ton of bricks.

I'd just like to hear others thoughts and eXpierences in regards to this method of thinking as it has really added to my perception of how my effects should be created and performed.

EXcellent here The Doktor was under the impression this topic might make for an eXceptional discussion. The Docktor must have misdiagnosed.

look up at me and you see a god;
look straight at me and you see yourself”

Yes it is an interesting topic.

But those who practice such things I belive may be unwilling to share freely on an open forum.

Thank you isso and Jim for at least responding to what The Doktoe feels is an eXcellent topic for discussion.

Making those which appear to be unnatural look justified and reasonable is a must. Also, making them psychologically invisible is key.

"PLEASE write the name of your lost love NICE AND BIG AND BOLD across the business card so that the whole audience can see..."

Notice the invisible use of language to control a situation of needing to peek?
