ForecastNo more procrastinating. There has never been a better time to master the memorised deck.
(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!
What do the world's top 1% of card magicians and mentalists have in common?
They have INSTANT recall of the position of ANY card in a memorised deck!
And now you can, too.
With a focus on prediction effects, master magician Craig Petty has taken an underused principle in card magic and created a monster masterclass demonstrating just how ridiculously powerful a memorised deck can be.
Imagine instantly telling a spectator EXACTLY how many cards they fairly cut from a deck.
Imagine PREDICTING the amount of cards a spectator will cut before they even do it.
Imagine performing the world's CLEANEST Card at Any Number routine.
You will learn all of these effects and so many more.
But there's a catch.
Memorising a deck of cards can be laborious and time consuming. It's why so few magicians ever make the top 1% and why so many performers quit trying.
However, Craig Petty's unique approach to learning a mem-deck will DRASTICALLY improve your progress and significantly slash the time required to learn one. Here's how:
The first three effects taught in Forecast are completely self working, killer card miracles. Despite using stacked decks, there is no need to remember the position of a single card! Craig designed these effects to help you become familiar with your stack without the risk of getting anything wrong. You will master all three effects almost instantly (and they are easily worth the price of this project alone).
The next three tricks are slightly more advanced, but easily still within your grasp. While they don't require instant recall, they do require a basic familiarisation with your stack. But we've made it super easy by including a devious gimmick that will be your safety net. Even in the heat of performance, you will never lose your cool.
The final three tricks do require instant recall. But by mastering all of the effects that came prior, you'll have already overtaken 99% of magicians that embarked on this path before you; You will have conquered the foundations and the finish line will be firmly in sight.
Memorising the order of a deck of playing cards allows you to perform card miracles that appear TRULY impossible, even to other magicians. If you're looking for magician foolers, this project is bursting with them!
What's more, every effect taught in Forecast can be performed with ANY memorised card stack. Craig uses the existing Mnemonica stack by Juan Tamariz but you are welcome to create your own by shuffling a deck into a random order and using that to begin your mem-deck journey.
No more procrastinating. There has never been a better time to master the mem-deck.
