It was almost a year ago that I was at Fism in Italy. I watched many of the shows and it was great.

....and then this is what happened.

The stage, music and atmosphere changes. Shin comes on stage and he is just perfect, smooth and precise.
I got goosebumps and at that moment I m convinced that he is a modern day real wizard. The act ends and everybody gives a standing ovation.
I m looking at people faces just to see if everybody is as mesmerised as me, of course they were.... Of course he won....
Of course after that he fooled Pen and Teller with this act and of course his YouTube video has over 15 million views….
Of course Dynamo performed it on TV and he still performs it on every live show he does.
Of course...

Now, almost a year later this gets published. I m not sure how you can teach people real magic, I hope it doesn't start like "first, you have to sacrifice two chickens....."

The Dream Act by Shin Lim

Shin Lim is, without doubt, one of the most talked about magicians in the world at the moment. It all started with his rollercoaster journey through the magic world. In the 2015, Shin Lim was crowned the FISM World Champion of Close-up Card magic in Italy. Two weeks later came his big break. On national television in America, Shin performed his Dream Act to a captivated audience. His appearance on 'Penn & Teller"" Fool Us' rocked him into the limelight and overnight, he became a worldwide phenomenon. The Dream Act was viewed over a million times in under a week and ever since, it has been broadcast all over the world.

The Dream Act is a beautiful, complete act which is magical to its very core. We're sure that when you first saw it, you'd have been as fooled as we were. There is a huge amount of magic packed into only a few minutes but at no point does the act feel rushed. In Shin's own words, it 'transcends the act of trying to fool a spectator by becoming an artistic expression'.



Shin combines ingenious methods, misdirection and music to create a moments which are not only memorable, they are moving and powerful. We were lucky enough to see Shin do his act live at Magi-Fest 2016 and like the rest of the room, we were gasping and infatuated. Shin describes this act as his prized possession and it is easy to see why.

In this 3.5 hour long video tutorial, Shin reveals every detail of the Dream Act. Every effect, method and action is covered in immense detail, including how to deal with angle issues and tips on changing your performing environment to suit the act. And then he explains his concepts of atmosphere, timing, theory, music, and movements and how they are integral when creating a silent routine.

What you get:
- All gimmicks are included (including custom smoke gimmicks)
- Over 3.5 hours of in-depth teaching
- USB charger included

This is one of the most impressive products we have seen in a long time. We have a VERY limited number of sets and we are certain that this will sell out extremely quickly.

I just sat down with Shin and did a short Q&A about The Dream Act. Hopefully this answers some of your questions you may have about it.

I saw this on Fool Me and it knocked my socks off. As I was watching I thought to myself how in the heck is he doing this? But I also thought that there is no way and I mean no way I would be able to do this effect. I'm glad this is being released however I'm going to pass on this for one reason only. I want to keep thinking how in the world did he do this? I, like a lot of you, see a video and have a good idea how it is done or at least we can think of a method that would work to accomplish the effect. With Dream Act I honestly have no idea and deep down I want to keep that mystery alive. Plus I know darn well I will not be able to even remotely perform this. But wow what a great effect and so worth the price! For those of you buying this I'm happy for you because I know the teaching will be awsome and you will love it. As I read no doubt the numerous posts that will follow as people receive this part of me will want to change my mind but in this case this one my friends will remain a beautiful mystery.

Good magic to all,


Eric

An act that's got 15m views on youtube amd that's taken him all over the world. I don't get why you'd sell it; or more importantly why anyone would want to perform it? Its not my cup of tea at all but I recognise the skill and hours you'd have to put in; but why would anyone else want to perform that act? Its also sad that from a performance perspective; despite the exposure on p and t etc; selling the act at a ludicrously low price to magicians is the most lucrative option.

I too am very tired of the usual dealers and some newer ones jumping on every new item and saying you can get it here.

You may not have noticed but I do this far less often now and only in the context of linking when I had something to say other than we sell this.

We have reviewed The Dream Act in our latest show and you can watch it here http://www.saturnmagic.co.uk/saturn-prod......R27.html

By the way we also sell this and have a great offer on it as well, I'm sure you will find it on our website!

$200 is a pretty stiff price point. I love the routine but is it really 10x better than 52 shades of red?

I think to truly understand how ludicrous this is; replace magic act with stand up act.

Jim jeffries has literally millions of views of his famous gun control act on youtube and has travelled the world with it. You can now learn all the timing and subtleties to deliver this signature act; for £165!!!

Or rhod gilbert's lost suitcase act; includes pretend suitcase handle!

With the Dream Act you are getting multiple phases that you can use in your own routines or you can replicate this act for private parties etc.

If you did replicate the act as taught I don't think anyone booking would argue they had not got value for money and I think we kid ourselves about how many lay people will have seen this, I bet very few have, or if they have they would not remember it.

The price for the complete act and gimmicks provided is well worth it if you intend to learn it.

The other bonus here is that it is not that difficult to do, there is only 1 move I would consider to he hard and that can be replaced with another of your liking if you can't do it as shown, all I'm referring to is control a card.

I also believe there is more chance that people will be doing this than 52 shades that needs a very controlled environment making this is magic you can do in the real world at private parties etc.

As has been mention to give away the act and gimmicks for this price is a steal, although it is priced higher than most general releases it is worth it.

We have special offer of a free copy of Advanced Card Moves Made Easy as well as free worldwide shipping while stocks last.

I like this routine. I think its fantastic. But, like others, who strugfle with the price of it. And, having read saturn magic website you don't get all the gimmicks to do the whole routine. This would fry a lot of people but for the price I think I may pass on it.

Yes you are right, but the extra bits are very easy to get hold of, and you probably already have a close-up mat and playing cards.. The gimmicks used to create smoke from your mat and the second smoke from mouth are not included. You will need your own: Close-Up Mat, Servant, and Playing Cards.

MoM have it on the site now on special offer with free worldwide shipping from the UK here:

You also currently get SSS 2015 Edition included FREE (download only) with this, which is a nice touch.

Hope this helps

I'm with Paul. I don't understand why any other performers would want to be doing this. The adverts themselves say that Shin's act was seen over one million times all around the world.

@Robmonster. I think there is a difference between seeing TV and experiencing it live. I know I would enjoy seeing a well executed performance live. Plus I assume most people will bring their own twists to the plot.

You've got an audience; Do them a favour and perform something original; not someone elses act. As I said eatlier; if it were a comedians act it'd sound obsurd to perform even parts of it; let alone the whole thing. In the comedy world; plagerism is frowned upon; in the magic world; it seems like the norm.
