Penguin Live Online Lecture – Chris Philpott
Add a filmmaker’s eye and a story-teller’s skill to your magic and mentalism!
“To the jaded of us who say ‘It’s all been done,’ or ‘There are no new effects or methods,’ tell that to Chris Philpott.” – Francis Menotti, Magic Magazine
“Absolutely brilliant! Your work stands on itself and when that happens… rare.” – Banachek
“A master!” – Atlas Brookings
“A freaking genius!” – Matthew Johnson
“A major new voice in the world of mentalism.” – Mark Elsdon
What will he teach?
Chris will be teaching a number of easy-to-perform mentalist and magic effects, including one using the 100th Monkey principle, one from his book, Intimate Mysteries (“One of the best books I’ve EVER owned!” – Stephen Young) and several brand new tricks revealed here for the very first time! There are also three bonus effects and some of his best Magic magazine articles in the downloadable package that comes free with the lecture!
When You’re Out of this World No One Can Hear You Applaud
Chris takes a screenwriter’s eye to one of the classics of magic as if it were a screenplay in bad need of a rewrite.
Photo of the Kids
You know that photo of your kids you keep in your wallet? A spectator is able to describe it with uncanny accuracy without seeing it!
Thought-of Card to a Called-Out Location
What the title says. Super clean and very memorable.
A funny, visual take on the liar/truth-teller plot in which the liars literally cannot stand up.
A playful guessing game about a trivial statistic turns into a startling prediction. Uses a principle many believe has never before been used in magic.
A spectator finds a card from a spread, face-down pack the old fashioned way – dowsing!
Your Deepest Fear
Chris takes what he learned writing scripts for two of the great horror directors – Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist) and Taka Shimizu (The Grudge) – and pours it all into this effect, a dark, suspenseful homage to horror movies.
A pen is smashed through a deck. A card rises from the impaled deck. Then the strangest thing happens… An effect Chris marketed a few years ago. (This lecture just paid for itself!)
One Monkey Ahead
A re-thinking of the One Ahead Principle from Chris’s latest release, Babel. Banachek called this effect, “Very, very, very, very (did I say very?) ingenious. Lovely.” And Luca Volpe said, “It opens so many possibilities that it makes you crazy! This is something that will change the way you perform this classic method forever!”
Chris will include everything you need to do “One Monkey Ahead” and material to help you construct “Your Deepest Fear.” On top of that, he’ll include three bonus effects and three of his Magic magazine articles in the download package!
