Time is of the Essence
Marc Spelmann's very own impromptu watch routine that is logical, effective for close up and parlor and astonishing. A borrowed watch and two business cards is all that is required for this routine that Marc demonstrated again and again in Vegas.
Using a similar principle to Time is of the Essence Marc has developed an impromptu book test that is logical and extremely direct.
No Such Luck
Spelmann's handling of the limited edition 'No Chance Delux Set' an effect left to complete chance always seems to go the performers was despite the true fairness of the demonstration.
So sure is the performer that they genuinely gamble a large sum of money on an outcome they cannot possibly control.
Imagine being able to have a person focus on a postcard of a landmark in a city from around the world, not only do know what landmark but you repeat the process matching every time. This routine is both direct and super easy. The principle can be adapted to practically any theme. Marc tips his use of the principle for his trade show performances.
N.A.M.D The Sequel
Marc has finally published his updated version of N.A.M.D. which was his marked deck from 2004. This deck is easily constructed in under half an hour and is possible the most easy to read marking system but also one of the hardest to detect.
PVP - Positional Visual Persuasion
Spelmann's brilliant handling of the bank night plot. This is routine received rave reviews in Las Vegas from some of mentalism's most notable names. Every step is logical and the routine is quite astonishing. No thumb tips, no awkward loads, no double envelopes, just 5 envelopes. This is certainly one of the easiest and cleanest bank nights and the fact that the spectator removes the contents of each envelope makes it totally baffling.
In Shaxons Shadow
Marc Spelmann has created a wonderful principle that seems so unbelievably fair yet you can predict or divine a word, in any book, on any page, on any line.
IYP Chair Test (In Your Pocket)
Marc developed this beautiful two phase chair routine so that he always had something that could be performed on the largest stage yet could literally fit into his pocket.
Four spectators each randomly choose a sweet, 3 are green and 1 is red. Marc successfully locates the person with the red sweet, without equivoque, double talk or any electrical devices.
He then instructs each person to sit on a chair, all id totally fair but he is able to influence the person holding the red sweet to sit in the chair he wants.
Theory & Thoughts
Marc divulges his current thoughts on mentalism, what is important, what we claim and how we develop our own personas in three compelling sections.
No Answers, Hurdles and No Show Willie.
