TrifectaA trilogy of powerful, practical, entertaining mentalism
(what does this mean?)
1. Self Working
Self working magic tricks are tricks that just work! They require no sleight of hand whatsoever. They are absolutely perfect for beginners. Desipite being super easy, we still recommend practising them in private first to perfect your patter and presentation.
2. Easy to Learn
These tricks are also beginner friendly, but there will most likely be a few sneaky (but fairly easy) moves to rehearse and remember before the trick is ready to be performed. Unlike self working tricks, these will require a little more confidence, but we believe in you!
3. Some Experience Necessary
Products in this category aren't difficult to do, but they will require some basic knowledge of the craft. If you know what a false cut is and can do a double lift, you've probably got what it takes to get value from these tricks. If you have no idea what any of that just meant, don't worry, you will after watching our beginners masterclass (coming soon).
4. Dedication Required
We always recommend practising your magic, even for self working tricks. But these tricks will require more than the average. Products that require some more advanced coin or card manipulations will probably fall into this category. Or tricks that need you to memorise a lot of information.
5. Serious Dedication Required
You're a serious magician if you're venturing into these realms. But it's true what they say; dicipline is rarely enjoyable but it is ALWAYS profitable. And boy, will you will reap the rewards. We salute you!
Trifecta is a trilogy of powerful, practical mentalism for close-up and parlour performances.
Simon Lipkin is a professional actor with a love for mentalism. He thinks deeply about the powers he presents to create believable and personable performance pieces with entertainment at their core. In this hour-long tutorial, Simon is going to share with you three of his easy-to-do, high-impact, signature mentalism effects.
A word is freely chosen from a pocket dictionary and written on the back of a business card. A special gimmick (which can be made in under five seconds) will deliver the information directly into your line of sight in a devious-yet-justified manner. This is the cheekiest book test we've ever seen!
Post It Prediction
Do psychic powers exist? Or is it all just coincidence? These questions are explored and left unsolved, until a folded up Post It note is removed from an envelope, correctly predicting a piece of information the performer couldn't possibly have known! This is a clever, close-up prediction system that allows you to predict almost anything.
Many Happy Returns
Have you ever forgotten someone's birthday? Of course you have (and it sucks). In Many Happy Returns you proudly assert that you no longer forget anyone’s birthday because you have memorised the birthdays of everyone you know (over 50)! After you successfully prove this claim, you take it one step further and correctly divine the exact birthday of your spectator! This routine, despite its premise, requires no memory work, no special stacks and no cribs. Everything is completely examinable and justified, and it instantly resets. This effect alone is worth the price of the download and the reactions it receives are insane.
Simon Lipkin is fast becoming one to watch in the magic and mentalism space. We have more projects with him coming out in the near future so grab Trifecta today to experience your first slice of his wacky-and-wonderful mind.
"Simon is one of the most imaginative creators around. His ideas are always fooling, entertaining, and above all else, extremely usable. This is engaging, entertaining mentalism at its very best!"
"Many Happy Returns is a devious routine and cheeky method that will have you looking like a Savant from the get go."
"Hard-hitting yet fun. This is how mentalism should be presented."
"Simon's hitting the industry hard with some incredibly fresh, workable magic! When you see Simon's name on an effect, don’t even think about it, just press the buy button! Your audiences will thank you for it."
"What I love about Simon's routines is that they make the full experience very personal to the spectator and the methodology is all perfectly justified. Bravo."
"Simon is a machine. He produces seemingly endless creative, fun and very commercial magic and mentalism. He's probably created a new great trick in the time it took you to read this."
