The Insider – Opening for Odd

Posted by Michael James on December 26th, 2011 in General

This week is Episode 50 of The Insider! At this point we ask ourselves whether we’re one episode behind schedule…nevertheless  in this  Zach discusses FIVE spectacular releases, a secret meeting with Andy Nyman, his opening act for Odd Future, and our involvement with charity: water.

As a part of the community, we strongly encourage you to help support charity: water by purchasing this deck of playing cards. 100% of the proceeds go directly toward bringing clean drinking water to developing nations.

Five Spectacular Releases

Posted by Michael James on December 24th, 2011 in General

Happy holidays from theory11!

It’s been an incredible year and we’d like to present our final release event of 2011. We’d like to present FIVE spectacular products:

Bicycle Steampunk - An industrial collaboration between Bicycle® and theory11. Ripped from the pages of science fiction, the gears are turning, the steam is pumping, and the playing cards were finally born.

charity: water – You can make a difference. You can save a life. You can change the world. 100% of proceeds derived from sale of this deck will go directly to charity: water.

The Whole Thing - by Chris Mayhew. From card productions to color changes, everything is exposed where the spectator not only sees the outcome of magic – but the magic itself.

Pure - Ekaterina’s debut cardistry project. Pure contains everything from two-handed cuts and shuffles to elaborate fans and table work. 15 powerful, elegant, unique flourishes taught in 90 minutes of instruction.

Dead Cut - with Jason England. A comprehensive course on using crimped cards. A staple move in the fundamentals of card magic – now taught in intricate detail by Jason in a 48 minute downloadable video.

Exposé – FIVE

Posted by Michael James on December 19th, 2011 in General

This week on Exposé, Zach and Christen switch things up and review what is probably the most under-rated DVD theory11 has ever produced: FIVE by Daniel Garcia and Marcus Eddie.

FIVE features a versatile five trick collection – everything from tic-tac penetrations to rubber band effects. This DVD is more than just magic; it’s a lesson on creativity.

Find out what Zach and Christen think about the quality, performances, explanations, and price of FIVE.

Make sure to catch Exposé every Monday where (usually) an effect from The Wire is reviewed. Watch this week’s episode HERE.

Exposé – RepAIR

Posted by Michael James on December 14th, 2011 in General

This week on Exposé, Zach and Christen review RepAIR, an effect by Michael Kent.

RepAIR is a restoration effect where the magician blows up a balloon, pops it, then restores it. With RepAIR everything is performed in plain view of the spectators. You’re able to show both hands completely empty before AND after the effect.

Zach and Christen rate RepAIR and explain their take in a not-so-conventional manner…which may or may not include helium.

Be sure to catch Exposé every Monday at 11:00am EST for trick reviews from The Wire! To check out this week’s episode, click on the pic to your left. 

Chris Mayhew Roundtable Discussion

Posted by Michael James on December 12th, 2011 in General

This week we have the unique opportunity to talk with Chris Mayhew – creator of The Hole Thing.

We released The Hole Thing back in December 2010 with great reception – some calling it ‘what actual magic would look like’. In this roundtable discussion, Andrei Jikh and Chris discuss The WHOLE Thing, the upcoming follow up project to Mayhew’s first release.  Find out what The Whole Thing is all about, details of it’s release, and what makes it a must have for anyone who loves using the holes concept.

Is the Internet Destroying Magic?

Posted by Michael James on December 8th, 2011 in General

Is the internet revolutionizing magic or killing it?

Rick Lax, creator of Vertigo, discusses the evolution of magic and how what was once a closely guarded secret has became a marketable product distributed to the thousands.

In this article, Rick introduces four magicians with radically different backgrounds. From theory11 CEO Jonathan Bayme to 77 year old performer Johnny Thompson, each magician bares testimony to magic’s incredible transformation.

Has magic lost the sacred nature it once had? Or do secrets matter as much as we think they do? Read the full article here.

Exposé – Monarchs

Posted by Michael James on December 5th, 2011 in General

On this week’s episode of Exposé, Zach and Christen switch it up and review Monarch playing cards!

They’ll answer the questions that are on everyone’s mind: How durable are Monarchs? What materials are they made with? Can they be blended? Five tests are conducted where they show us just how well Monarchs can hold up against the pressure.

This week they also discuss the reason behind their poking at Collin, Shim, and the rest of the artists. This episode is as unscripted as it gets and full of laughs – Check it out HERE.

Make sure to check out The Wire and suggest which effect they should review next week in the comment section.

 

The Insider – Getting Framed

Posted by Michael James on December 2nd, 2011 in General

Today, even Zach himself doesn’t have the attention span to sit through 7 minutes of Insider footage. That’s why this week, the Insider is guaranteed to be under 5 minutes long!

In this week’s episode, Zach discusses Ben Seidman getting framed, Wayne Houchin literally hanging over the Dominican Republic, and David Copperfield appearing on Wizards of Wavorly Place. He also discusses the latest episode of Exposé and updates on this season’s crazy Holiday Contest.

Also in this episode is an exclusive first look at our newest project coming soon. You can watch this week’s episode HERE – for all Insider episodes, check out our Insider Vault.
