Click to enlarge Volume Two: Mentalism for the Casual Performer Part 2
Make the value of a spectator’s playing card slowly appear on your arm in blood red! Anywhere, anytime! Reveal a thought-of number from across the distance separated by phone lines. Engage two people in a fun routine where the performer predicts a page number and a word “seen” by a volunteer on an invisible Palm Top computer. Become a human lie detector in a thrilling and comical adventure. This DVD continues from Part 1 with close-up, stand-up and stage mentalism and mental magic with additional routines including anywhere, anytime effects plus staggering psychological ploys.
Learn a multi-phase routine weaving audience direction and sleight-of-hand into one smooth effect. Also, learn the “inside” secrets of what Banachek considers one of the most powerful tools in the mentalist’s arsenal - Pocket Writing. This DVD includes Banachek’s discussion of his “Buried Alive” escape, his Bullet Catch illusion now used by Penn & Teller, the difference between mentalism and mental magic plus comical anecdotes about blindfold drives. You will also see a television clip of Banachek’s “Buried Alive” escape hosted by William Shatner and TV footage of one of Banachek’s early Blindfold Drives.
