In this day of digital photography where software can be used to alter images in an instant, CAPTURED uses classic technology to bring a person's thoughts to life on film, right in front of their face. A familiar object enters play, a deck of cards. It can be any deck at all. A participant picks a card and retains it for the duration of the presentation, never showing it to the magician until the very end. The magician brings out a camera and takes a photograph of the participant, which they then hold on to.
L. CLARK, MBA
As the participant concentrates on the photograph, their thoughts slowly appear in the photo like the image of a ghost captured on unholy ground. This is an experience so raw and visceral that your participant begins to shake like a Polaroid picture. All they can do is stare in utter disbelief; their mouth wide open like the foundation of their reality has just been cracked by a 2-thousand pound wrecking ball. This is hard hitting magic. And best of all, your participant gets to take the experience home with them and remember it forever. Strong. Dynamic. In-Your-Face magic. CAPTURED. Running Time Approximately 57min
|MT43138||KEY ROULETTE - A bill is secured in a plastic frame and a padlock is snapped shut through the frame. 6 keys are shown to the spectators. The magician demonstrates that one of the keys can open the padlock and he mixes it with all the other keys. Five volunteers are given a free choice of key leaving one key to the magician. They are told that if their key will open the lock they will win a prize. Before each volunteer opens the lock, he gets an option to change his key with the magicians key. Each one of the volunteers tries his key to open the lock but only the last key that is left to the magician opens the lock, leaving the prize with the magician! No force of any kind, the magician wins with the last key. great effect at any show: children, adults and trade shows. The frame will hold most sizes of bills and can be used as well for show tickets, fly tickets or any other flat objects.||
The magician can invite one of his spectators to live an unforgettable experience based on TELEKINESIS. (The art to move objects with the power of the mind) For this he will use something so simple and daily as a marker which can be used during the performance. He will place it supported in a glass or in the table and after seconds of concentration the marker will fall leaving all the assistants with their mouth opened.
The effect is very impressive if you do it in the hand of one spectator, because it is rising gradually until it falls. Points to consider: - it can be 100 % checked - it writes and it is possible to be recharged - 70 % is within the table ( in other versions it is necessary to leave it on the verge of falling) - it is a perfect marker to sign cards, photos, etc.
The performer shows that he/she has a playing card in there pocket, and that they'll be getting back to that a bit later. The participant is handed a Journal/Diary, and is asked to browse through it... they'll notice that on every date is a playing card. Now they are handed a deck of playing cards... they can look through them all they want, and can shuffle to there hearts content. Now they'll use the cards to come to a random month and date... all
this happens entirely in there hands, with the performer being completely hands off. Once a month and date has been decided, they are to turn to that date and look at the card written, but not to say it. You then ask them to go through the deck and remove the card that's on there date... it's not there... The performer then reminds them about the card he/she had in there pocket prior to starting... it's removed and handed to the spec... it's the card they were thinking of.
possibly the most direct mental effect ever conceived with a deck of cards

INFLUENCE - DVD
Kentonism Deck - A bold and awe-inspiring effect. A spectator shuffles and cuts a deck after being shown the faces of the cards. The spectator cuts to one card - and this is the card predicted in advance. The performer does not handle the cards once the spectator has them. The trick that blew away the may famed mentalists of the Psychic Entertainer's Association. - Dual Reality Deck - Kenton created the term "multiple reality" and "dual reality" for his unique approach to mentalism and magic. Since that time it has inspired countless performers and authors.
Here for the first time ever Kenton tips his special dual reality work with cards. - Cards are sprung from hand to hand and a spectator thinks of any card they see. The audience sees the faces too. The card the spectator thinks of is the one predicted in advance. The cards are shown faces and backs as normal. - The more the spectator talks to the audience, the more amazing the trick becomes. Is it a real trance state A surefire way to do the think of a card force without sleight of hand or fear of missing.
You can borrow a burning cigarette or chewing gum from somebody. You show both sides of your credit card! You lay the cigarette or chewing gum on the credit card. You begin concentrating and moving your hand in a magic way. The cigarette starts standing up very slowly till the angle of 90 degrees. It moves as for your commands. At last the cigarette lays back to the card. You can do it anywhere, anytime.
After establishing yourself as a person with some unusual intuitive skills, you say you'd like to put those skills to a real, measurable test. In order to do that, you need some sort of benchmark to compare them against. There are various items that could serve this purpose, from tarot cards to personality profiles. But, you explain, because you like to set the bar high, you've chosen the divinatory tool which, throughout the several-thousand-year history of esoteric practice, has generally been regarded as the most trusted source of metaphysical wisdom and insight into the human condition: a horoscope mini-magazine, direct from the supermarket checkout counter. You give such a magazine to a volunteer, pointing out that it deals with four distinct areas of life: love, money, health, and leisure. You then turn your back and ask your volunteer to look up her horoscope -- either for the current month (if it's far along enough to get a good sense of how it's turning out), or for the previous month (if it's too soon to tell how this month is going yet). In either case, she silently reads her horoscope. When she's finished, you ask her to consider how accurate it seems in hindsight. She does, and arrives at a "percentage score" for the magazine's accuracy, which you write down. No matter what it is, you say you think you can do better.
You then turn to face the volunteer again, and proceed to give her a disarmingly accurate and insightful description of her personality and her current situation in life. This is no mere "cold" reading, as it contains a wealth of specific information that you had no way of knowing, including personal details about her character, actions, and circumstances, delivered confidently and unequivocally. You then wrap things up by revealing her zodiac sign, with no pumping or guesswork. With that, not only have you done much better than the magazine, but you've given the volunteer an intimate, inexplicable experience that she'll never forget. ASCENSION really is just that clean, direct and strong. It's a system that uses layers of methods to deliver, in a completely untraceable way, the most powerful and memorable information that we as mentalists can reveal: personal details about someone's life. Furthermore, it does so in real time, with no writing, no setup, no assistance, no pre-show, and no stooges (instant or otherwise). How you use that information is then up to your own imagination. Complete Package includes: A clearly written, photo-illustrated, grammatically correct, professionally edited, Typographically pleasing, 5.5" x 8.5", staple-bound, 32-page manuscript, which comprehensively explains the method, handling, and various scripting and presentation options for the effect. One complete set of professionally printed magazines. A CD-ROM with graphics files for printing your own replacement magazines when the originals wear out.
This effect has been said by many to be the most powerful Metal Bending Routine in existence, a personal experience for someone and a souvenir like no other. Several keys and colored rubber bands are shown. A spectator freely selects a key. The key is initialed on one side by the spectator and then initialed by the performer on the other side. Next, a colored rubber band is chosen by the spectator and threaded through the head of the key.
The rubber band is placed over the spectators wrist and the spectator holds the key at their fingertips. The performer suggests that the spectator will feel the key soften and bend like rubber, they do, and it does. The key is felt bending while the spectator is holding it and it is attached to a rubber band around the spectators wrist the whole time! Your hands are left clean and they are left with an amazing accessory.

the chosen card, even though everyone else in the room hears nothing or sees no visible signing of any kind. Somehow the chosen card seems to be revealed to the second spectator.

BY ASSOCIATION -
111 PAGES - on the secret principle of Association and how Kenton and students use this long ignored and mysterious factor. We simply cannot say enough about it, or what it will do for you. Using association causes spectators to stop being spectators. It actively engages onlookers, causing more of an experience and relationship with your audience. Audience becomes an active force in your performance. They do not feel left out of the act. With association, the audience is a willing and active participant, rather than an antagonistic force to be won over by manipulation. Best of all, magic and mentalism can easily be made into legitimate art by applying Association to standard tricks and presentations. In a sentence or less, with one object, or less, association casts its spell. Immediate art and meaning can be had without hard work, once you grasp the underused and oft ignored principle of Association. Influence and shape
audiences to do as you desire by Association and its related branches of sneaky psychology. People will follow your lead and more. Your audience is just waiting to be taught what to do! All of this is just for starters. We know these sound like impossible promises, but they are true. Artists and psychologists have proved these claims about Association reliable for ages. Association is the standard used in video, persuasion psychologies, advertising, art, music and theatre. Yet mentalists and magicians use it unknowingly, as if by happenstance. Kenton once again changes the landscape of mentalism and magic forever with this book. You will wonder how mystery performers ever performed without this incredible principle. This work will remind you why Kenton is considered a groundbreaking leader in mentalism and magic. New effects, tricks and methods included, as well as material from The S.E.C.R.E.T. School. 111 pages.
Nine different giant-size cards are shown to the audience. Two spectators are each asked to mentally select one of the numbers.
The pre former merely asks them to concentrate one the numbers, which they have secretly selected. Yet the magician successfully
reads there mind.
