THIS LECTURE TOOK PLACE: February 5th at 4:00pm PST.
At the Table with Michael Ammar
So, you've heard that Michael Ammar is the first guest in our "At the Table" Live Lecture Series. You already know it's JUST ONE DOLLAR TO ATTEND, no strings attached. We already know your next question: what will Michael Ammar do?
The answer is...A LOT.
In this two hour live event, you'll see lots of tricks, Michael will take your questions, and he'll even delve into things you have NOT seen him do at conventions or lectures. Like:
Broken and Restored Screen: This is Michael's newest "go-to" impromptu effect. Borrow someone's phone and crack the glass on the screen. SHOW THEM graphic detail how the broken screen looks and feels...then magically restore the phone and hand it back to them. Michael will discuss how he developed this effect, how a packing bubble can enhance the illusion, and how you can make the simple gimmick needed to perform.
Rubber Band Jam: Michael Ammar does Crazy Man's Handcuffs--a rubber band penetration--better than anyone alive. It's likely you do this effect as well. But we're going to go over several fine points that he has never tipped before, and how Richard Ross influenced his presentation in ways you haven't realized. We'll talk about Ammar's concept of the "delayed revelation" that can be applied to countless effects you already do.
Pencil Through Coin: NO! This is NOT the version you think you know. Michael Ammar consulted on a television special where this effect was used, and the method is FANTASTIC and NEW--new as in "brand new," never before lectured on. Mr. Ammar will use his "At the Table" performance to debut this effect and its unusual handling to the magic community.
Hardcore Card Jam: Michael Ammar has chops--great chops, and he has had great teachers. We rarely get to see Michael's chops up close because he often performs for groups of 50, 100, or 1000 people at a time. Well, on February 5th, we'll see him up close and personal, with camera work that will get each of us within inches of his hands. He'll give us a masterclass on the Side Steal, some palms, and more. He will discuss his theory of "Technical Alchemy," the idea that the best ideas are often stripped down to the irreducible minimum, so that the only actions, words, and movements included in an effect play some positive role.
