Impromptu Mentalism

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Giianni, Dec 17, 2009.

  1. Hi, I'm looking for some impromtu mentalism or mentalism that really has an organic feel to it.

    Can you help me out, maybe name some books or DVD's?

    Thanks,
    Gianni.
     
  2. Well nearly all mentalism should seem impromptu, except for some of the larger props.

    If you want things that require nothing more than some paper and pen, then some things I recommend.

    Switchcraft- Billet Switches and it's constantly updated.
    Technique- Matthew Mello
    Perfected Centre Tear- Richard Osterlind

    Now some things that I would recommend that aren't necessarily impromptu but have that feel are,

    Super Sharpie- Actually has the gimmick secured inside, so carrying two things in one.
    Boris Wild's Marked Deck- I don't use to many cards but one effect I do use requries this.
    Richard Osterlinds Stacked Deck- I can't remember the name right now, but his stacked deck is truly one of the best.

  4. Osterlind's is the Breakthrough card system. (Y)

    Get a good peek wallet and you're done, be creative ;)

    Outside of that, Nardi and Spelmann have a DVD dedicated to impromptu mentalism that is most likely right up your street - I think it's called the unexpected, or something similar. www.alakazam.co.uk

  5. Aye, that is my only magic thing related for christmas I plan on getting.

    All impromptu and it's from two of my favorite mentalists, so can't go wrong really.

    Pssst, Psychological Subtleties 3.....
    Nice stuff in there that some stuff don't need props at all.

    Other than that Paul Brook has some nice stuff, actually most good mentalism is gimmick free if you want and totally go anywhere and do effects are also out there at hands reach. Some nice stuff already said by Sherlock and Dee.
    Needless to say, Dee (Christopher) has some insane impromptu stuff of his own, props mate!

    Mikk.
     
  7. Organic Feel? Direct Mind reading is very impressive and seems natural. ESP is quite good, but not as impromptu, and Radar Deck for me is always an absolute winner.
     
  8. Inner Mind Productions The Unexpected. Great dvd set on impromtu mentalism! Check it out!
     
  9. Thanks for the words Mikk, appreciate it :)

  10. I agree with what has already been said.

    I feel that mentalism should feel impromptu. What are you exactly after? As in what do you want to preform, metal bending, book tests etc.
     
  11. mind reading and efffects where you place 5 objecs on a table they select one and you are able to tell witch to choose.

    thanks fore your help everyone.
     
  12. PATEO!

    Get Joshua Jay's book. Magic: The Complete Course.

    Lay out however many objects you wish, they freely eliminate which ones they want to, and then CHA-POW you knew it all along.

    Hope this helps,
    -Chase
     
  13. PATEO force is a great tool into learning how to properly sell equivoque.

    Looch's DVD Your Thoughts are Mine is very good and has a few different ideas on fairly simple principles and presentations.
