You made it! You have survived 38 episodes of The Insider. Congratulations if you watched every episode…which you probably did not. We all know Zach is the only one who does that.
In tonight’s episode, we discuss David Copperfield and Apollo Robbin’s appearance on the upcoming National Geographic special ‘Brain Games’, Penn and Teller’s new TV show, and a sneak peak at our newest release Vertigo.
To watch tonight’s glorified magic-strocity, click on the handsome smirk to your left. For all previous episodes, check out The Insider Vault.
It all started with eleven. Eleven artists, and one idea. One concept. Over the past four years, our team has expanded from those original few to 43 artists and thousands of members worldwide. Today, we add another.
We are proud to announce Michael Herp as the newest theory11 artist. Please join us in welcoming Michael to the theory11 family and share in our excitement for his upcoming debut project, solo.
See the revelation video now in the theory11 media section, and learn more about Michael and what to expect in solo on his official theory11 artist page. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for the inside scoop. You’re in for a ride!
Only one week remaining between now and the deadline for submissions of the Cardistry Collaboration Contest 2011!
The Cardistry Collaboration Contest started back in 2008. Dozens of cardists from throughout the world aligned and competed in groups of two or more for a Grand Prize and a truly awesome title. The winning video showed everything we were looking for: originality, unique style, and great cinematography.
The winner of ’09 offered something we had yet to see – a laid back flourishing video that somehow translated energy, intrigue and punch with a very low-key soundtrack.
We hope the CCC2011 will be even bigger and badder than ever. You only have ONE WEEK left to submit your video! Check out all the rules and details HERE. Good luck!
It all started in October of 2009. It was on that day – it was Halloween night – that we unveiled the debut DVD from the mind of Andrei Jikh. It was called Genesis. And it changed everything.
Everything you learned in Genesis v1 is about to be propelled to another dimension. Covering over 18 moves on an intermediate to advanced ability level, Genesis v2 takes you by the hand and doesn’t let go. Are you up to that challenge?
Imagine a new world of elegant, fluid motion brought to life by Andrei Jikh. Get inside his mind, and apply these principles in creating new moves of your own imagination. With Genesis v2, Andrei Jikh solidifies his stance on the forefront of the art form, and with this video, he invites you to join him on that quest.
About two years ago, we set out on an adventure with Andrei Jikh with very ambitious goals. The task was to produce Andrei’s premiere DVD set, his debut collection of original moves across all spectrums of cardistry.
Realizing how monumental that undertaking would be, we split the contents into three volumes. The first volume alone was 3.5 hours, encompassing 30 moves all taught in a natural, detailed, approachable manner.
We’re excited now to show you a glimpse of Genesis v2 – the second volume in the series. Like the first, this was a difficult project for us to complete, requiring explanation of moves more complicated than the first. The production is nearly complete, and it’s coming VERY soon!
This first clip is entitled STARDUST. Watch and enjoy!
We put that idea to the test with help from Marco Tempest and theory11’s own Andrei Jikh last night. THIS is the result.
The video was shot at close to 1,000 frames per second over a two second period of time. This process produced a video that – when slowed down to “normal” speed – shows every nuance and detail of Andrei’s cardistry performance.
Watch it now! Special thanks to Marco Tempest for his direction, vision, and expertise, and to Andrei Jikh for pushing cardistry to the limit to capture this demonstration.
