On February 26th 2009 a historic event took place. Bob Cassidy gave a one-of-a-kind two hour teleseminar which was hosted by his longtime student and friend Michael Weber.
Two hours of pure Cassidy where he answered questions and spoke on a number of crucially important points on mentalism. Some of the topics discussed were:
Bob also explained several of the points he wanted to make on concrete examples, effects he uses or used in his professional stage program, such as his Russian Roulette routine.
- Persona: Selecting effects consistent with your persona; choosing a persona; credibility; the Dr. Crow persona.
- Rehearsing: How to practice mentalism.
- What is bad mentalism?
- Scripts versus Improvisation
- Mentalism versus Mental Magic
- Publicity stunts
- Logical disconnect: The importance of preventing the possibility for spectators to back trace the method.
- and a lot more...
Additionally to the two hour MP3 you will receive two PDFs. One is the pre-seminar lecture notes that everybody received before the seminar started. And the other is a post-seminar PDF where Bob followed up on many questions submitted by listeners.
