Good morning to everybody!


this is my first time here in the cafè!

I'm interested in "whisper" too, and I tried to reach the author via email, but with no avail.

So I'll post my questions here:

- it's something only for stage work or can it be used close up? in either case, is it the same "thing", or you have to act accordingly/adapt?

- (this one seems to be already answered, but just in case) so, it's NOT simply a matter of whispering to the guy the work you peeked/forced/etc
I mean, if people are going to talk with him after show, will he tell them that he had some kind of "insight" (and not because I asked him not to Smile )

- is it self contained? is it some sort of dual reality?

- the spectator actually gets the word apparently by himself, apparently using the instructions you whispered him?

- how do you overcome the problem that the audience will think that you whispered the correct word in the spec ears (you are a mindreader after all, so you can read it!)


thanks

Hi buddy,
I am sorry I havent seen your email. Let me see about answering these questions for you:

- One of the ideas for the supplement that everyone who has Whisper will get, is an amazing idea for how to make this a really fantastic close up piece.
- yes, you're right.
- right again Smile
- the way I do this is, before I whisper to them is I say "i am not going to tell you the answer, I don't want you to lie for me under any circumstances" then I whisper and again re-state those things. Plus, the reaction the person has on their face when they get ti right confirms for everyone that its for real.

I hope that helps, sorry again for not seeing your email.

Thanks Ken for the answers! (and no prob for the emails)

just one clarification: ok, it's self contained, but it's not a preshow/dual reality principle, right?

There is absolutely no preshow needed at all. There has to be some dual reality otherwise there is no point in whispering, you may as well say it out loud. Hope that makes sense. No pre-show at all buddy. Although if you wanted you COULD use preshow, but I don't think I ever have.

Looking forward to reading some reviews from purchasers.

Have any purchasers posted a review of this? I haven't logged onto the Café in a while but I couldn't find anything in "Penny" or the reviews section. Thanks.

Yep. He wrote it in another thread. If I do it right here it is:

I promised a review once I gave the book a thorough reading. My review will be similar to other postings of people who have actually purchased the book. First, it is very good. You are able to do exactly what is advertised. I have not yet performed it because it really should be done on stage or for a large group of people. To do this effect justice you should have your script down iron clad. I would anticipate most spectators watching this effect will be absolutely bafffled--and that is what we want. As for the spectator who you whisper too, I believe the way the effect is designed he will not understand the method. It is possible that over time, if that spectator thought about it, he might to some extent understand part of the method---but maybe not and highly doubtful it would be the day of the performance (i.e he would not be able to opine on the method to other spectators). The actual secret could be shared in just a few pages but Ken explains everything in detail---this is important. There is no sleight of hand, just presentation. Ken gives you everything you need. Overall I am very satisfied with the purchase, glad it is a limited release and think the price is fair taking all things into consideration.

Hi guys, thanks for all the nice words on Whisper. If anyone has any questions before you decide whether it's for you, I realise it's a big investment that is absolutely not for everyone - so if you have questions drop me an email ken@mentalunderground.com and I'll shoot you a response back as quick as possible.

If you ask any of the people who have contacted me already, I am bluntly honest with my replies, because I'd prefer the people who do get Whisper to be people who it's suited to, who can use it and who I think will come up with great ideas by using it that they might share with me so I could put in to a supplement for the rest of the people who are 'in the know' with Whisper.

Just wanted to let you know that I am here, but don't check the Café as much as I'd like so fastest response it email.

Cheers!

Cheers man - I'm trying to update it every month where I can. Initially planned on only talking about the stuff that's good, but a couple of my friends said that was a bit one-sided. So I'll also talk about the poor stuff from now on too.

Thanks! For what it's worth, I had also started a thread in the reviews section. As of this writing, however, no one has posted a review.

Hey guys just letting you know that if you have been waiting to get together the money to buy Whisper, there is a super price of a 30% off at mindshocks website.

You should take a look at it

The special was on e-books and did not include whisper being a printed book, as far as I know.This wouldn't be fair either for those who supported the creator and paid 70 quid more for it.
