Every generation has a true innovator who brings his own unique vision to bear on the art of mentalism and creates material that seems to defy explanation. Alakazam Magic is proud to introduce the newest member of this elite group: Colin McLeod.



Combining his very modern sensibilities for cutting-edge prop-free methods with a clarity of performance that leaves audiences speechless with wonder, Colin has developed a repertoire of contemporary mentalism which is the envy of all who’ve seen it.


Now for the first time on this 4-disc set Colin reveals the methods, techniques and thinking behind some of his most incredible effects. This is stand-up and close-up material that will empower you to mystify your audiences with some of the most compelling mentalism you will ever learn.



Stand-Up:



Bookless Test

Colin’s brilliant opener where he predicts a thought of word from an imaginary book. And yes, the prediction is printed, not nail-written.



Quite Wordy

A clever new psychological word-force for the whole audience, leading into what will become the standard impromptu book-test handling.



Chair Test

An exceptionally clean and direct chair-test, where process is kept to an absolute minimum. It features three distinct climaxes which build to an incredible finale.



ACAAN

This is the one! No gimmicks, no sleights, no pre-show, no stooges. An anytime, anywhere, any deck method has to be seen to be believed. One number + one card = one miracle.



Where's the Money?

A bank-note and serial number divination effect, which introduces Colin’s innovative hands-off system for identifying which one of five spectators is hiding an object. 100% accurate, with no electronics and no prevaricating!



Will ESP Cards Match

Becker’s classic ‘Will The Cards Match’ reworked for stage and incorporating a sure-fire prediction.



Lo££ery

Colin’s favourite effect! A purely psychological influence effect which is the perfect answer to the question, “Can you predict the lottery?” A future-classic…



Winning Numbers

Following on from Lo££ery, this revolutionary handling of ‘Sneak Thief’ turns the effect on its head by allowing you to reveal every spectator’s chosen number!



Newspaper Tear Routine

A stunning prediction of a single word from a freely chosen piece of newspaper. It involves the entire audience, with every decision made outside of your control. Nevertheless the chosen word is predicted in a totally entertaining way.















Close-Up:



Result

A stack of un-gimmicked billets become an accessible and totally practical tool which can be used to easily and openly predict anything.



Furtive Switch

A one handed, invisible billet switch that drags billet switching into the 21st Century and makes it completely practical for the real world.



Bolder Business

Colin teaches his handling for a drawing duplication which uses more than a stack of billets, a pen and chutzpah.



Serial Prevaricator

An entire close-up routine for revealing who is holding a borrowed, folded bank note and which hand they are holding it in. It concludes with the divination of the serial number from across the room.



Kolintrol

A powerful extension of Knepper’s ‘Kontrol’, which Colin has developed over hundreds of performances. He correctly predicts the actions a spectator will make, even though they are given lots of opportunity to change their mind as many times as they like.



Double Card Thought Projection
This routine is the main reason Colin uses cards in mentalism. The spectator reads the performer’s mind and the performer reads the spectator’s. A truly simple and direct mindreading demonstration using playing cards.

This exciting new DVD set will be launched at the 2010 MindVention in Las Vegas and will be shipped out to all mail order customers on Monday 18th October 2010

Very interesting!
I just wonder, if it´s more for the professional performer, rather than for a hobbyist.

Colin will probably jump on here to answer.

I'm really looking forward to this release.

As a professional performer everything I do needs to be of the highest standard. So they are routines designed for use in the real world. Not only that, the routines are aimed to be taught in depth so you can apply the principles in other ways... you'll hopefully have noticed its 15 routines taught over 4 disks.

Incredibly proud of these and the work Alakazam and Russ Stevens has put into them is phenomenal.

My aim was to release material that raises the bar in mentalism (as all releases should aim to do) and the feedback I'm getting from people is that these routines achieve that!

Very excited about you guys getting to see them.

They are available for pre order from http://www.colinmcleod.com .

Best wishes guys.

Colin, for those that have purchased ALL of your manuscripts and books, how much can we gain from these DVD's as I notice some of the DVD material seems the same or similar to some of the effects in the books? Is there much crossover?

And if I write, many a pen will break.

There are a few pieces which cross over. Those are the routines which I felt would be more easily understood by seeing it performed or seeing it explained. Also, being my first set of dvds, I wanted a good mixture of stuff on there as the majority of people won't be familiar with my work.

That said, any routine which is on there, I've explored it in extreme depth covering everything.

As you've said though, there really isn't that much cross over.

Best wishes,
Col

Colin,

Is your bonus pdf also available to us American buyers who order from U.S. dealers (in order to save transatlantic postage)?

Thanks,
Jerry

Hey!

I'll sort this out! It may be an extra pound or two, but I'm kinda hoping the DVDs themselves are priced REALLY affordably anyway, so I'll put the option on my site for outside the UK postage Smile .

Best wishes,
Col.
