I am sure Jean-Jacques Sanvert will chime in here soon Smile. He is not a only highly respected magician who knows a bit about mentalism but also member here. Jan

Does it work well for close-up or is it mainly a stage thing?

Dorian, do you still perform this? What are limitations to know from a performer's perspective? Thanks!

Mike

I can't believe I missed this. I've been on that site before and never came across it. I too would like to know the stipulations as far as performance. Close up, one on one, or stage?

I am interested in this book, but wonder if you are correct 100% of the time?

I am also curious about the "bestseller in Europe for months"? Almost every country in Europe have their own language, and I find it a bit strange that this is a bestseller in Europe if it`s not been published in english before. Maybe I`m missing something?

It looks like an interesting book. Looking forward to read some reviews.

Well I was happy to take the plunge when I saw Jean-Jacques Sanvert comments on it. He is a very busy professional but occasionally visits the Café, so he may be able to shed his thoughts more here.

Yes I still perform this... Although keep in mind that this is not something to perform automatically at each show/gig. You need to choose the right atmosphere, the right person, etc. It is really a powerful experience, and I had never seen something like this before in the magic litterature. It opens many possibilities, and connects to so much more aspects that mentalism by itself.

It is not 100% surefire, but you can always turn it into your advantage.

Anyway, each time I perform this, the spectator is convinced that I know his drawing even before the effect is finished / the revelation is done.

Of course, it will work in english and any other language. It's better for close-up / intimate performance though... But I see that working on stage too... but I never did that on stage, only close-up. I heavily recommend this to any serious performer (not the hobbyist).

This is a true little gem, and it would have been nice to keep it underground Smile

This effect has been underground for at least 15 years... The book in french was released in 2011.

It is a very powerful effect to keep for special occasions.
It can also be used/practiced in conjunction with a more conventional method. As no p**k is necessary, the spectator is convinced you now the drawing even before the p**k!

Voh002,
you are right by stating that it's a bit strange that this is a bestseller in Europe as almost every country has its own language.
Personally I'm in mentalism 24/7 and until today I've never heard about "Real Mentalism" before. But there is so much going on in internet that probably I've missed it.
Anyway, I'll check this out, because I like the premise and if Jean-Jaques Sanvert says it's good, I believe him.

doriancaudal,
could you please tell us a little bit more about how the effect is presented, without exposing the method?
Thanks,

Wolf

I got the book and I honeslty used this kind of techinque (not exactly the same but almost similar) in some works with my friend Kenton Knepper.
But, I have to say that the book explore very well this idea, that has a great potential and in the right circumstances it can be a miracle.
There is part towards the end of the book, that I think is worth a LOT, but obviously I can's say much.
Overall, the book has a very good thinking and for me is a good food for thought.

You ask the spectator to draw something. He can be in front of you, or at the phone at the other side of the planet.
Then you begin to describe his drawing… more and more precisely.

Ok, I've read the booklet, but HAVEN'T TRIED IT OUT YET.

The effect COULD be a winner (there are some chances that it won't work), but, as Luca Volpe says, there are some nice touches towards the end of the book and with some more thought one may come up with even more of them.
Sorrily the effect is not repeatable for the same group but, as doriancaudal says, it can be a very powerful experience in a close up environment.
