Who is Marc Spelmann?
I have known Marc Spelmann for the last eight years and he is one of those real world
performers who create pure miracles from conception to completion, no pipe dreams, no
fillers, just pure astonishment in every routine.
Marc has been invited to perform for the worlds elite A list, from Eric Clapton,
Lennox Lewis, George Michael, Jack Nicholson, Hugh Grant, Davina McCall, Gerry Halliwell,
Johnny Vaughn and HRH Prince Andrew.
His client list is truly extensive with corporate giants such as Sony, Vodafone,
Columbia Pictures, Jaguar, BMW, Dyson, The BBC, Carlton Television, Channel 4, Channel 5,
Madam Tussauds, Rail Track, Credit Lyonnaise and Amtrak as a mere few of Marcs regular
I managed to finally get Marc to release some of his treasured routines for the magic
community and I have to say that as a magic dealer I cannot remember a book or DVD set
with so many real world routines. Marc has delivered material that knocked everyone out at
the filming. I am confident that anyone of any level who purchases these DVDs will use
Marcs killer routines and principles.
In my opinion Marcs fantastic chair routine One In Thousands, Staple Roulette
and his diabolical approach to the bank night theme The Prize Draw are all
individually worth the price of the entire set of DVDs to a working professional and could
be sold for hundreds of pounds each.
On the day of filming a shattering 31 routines I could not decide which routines
I wanted to ad to my repertoire, I was spoilt for choice, a rarity for any set of DVDs.
The privileged audience who saw the filming firmly believe that every effect was a true
Marc thinks outside of the box and creates workable real world effects that play huge.
I can honestly say that it is an absolute pleasure to be releasing this unbelievable set
and the two and a half year process of finally pinning Marc down has been worth every
second. All of this from someone who is not really known in magic circles and at a young
age for his wisdom, knowledge and maturity with the impossible. Our art will benefit I'm

Volume One - The Unknown
A drawing duplication that is real time, no impressions, no pre show, no stooges. You send
an image to a random volunteer in the hope that they will receive your thought. You repeat
the process a number of times matching image after image to an astonished audience and a
- A Card in 52. A Word in Thousands
A direct card divination combined with a triple book test, the books are cheap paper
backs, a spectator choses a random page that they do not tell you, next another spectator
chooses one of three books yet you clearly divine the words and them of the line they are
concentrating on and you don't even know what page or book they are looking at.
- Sweet Sensation
A packet of wine gums is used to manipulate one of the most unexploited senses, that of
taste. Five volunteers are to imagine a sour taste, however one will imagine a sweet taste
you divine exactly which spectator is imagining the sweet sensation.
- £1,000,000 Serial Killer
A volunteer is asked to take part in a challenge guessing game of which hand holds the
prize, they win every time, as a finale not only do you divine the serial number on their
£20 note but reveal an incredible coincidence never seen before.
- Staple Gun Roulette
Four ungimmicked industrial staple guns, one genuinely loaded are used in a psychological
killer routine where the audience gamble with their choices. Three staple guns are fired
over their hands whilst the forth is fired into a block of wood to conclude a seriously
tense piece of mental theatre.
What People Are Saying:
"Marc Spelman is one of those unusual characters that come along
once in a generation who knows how to create an idea in such a way as to create a stunning
performance piece of mentalism, He also knows that presentation is everything."
"The material is first class, easy to understand and most
important of all, highly entertaining. I like your style. friendly, courteous and very
disarming. The material is delightfully commercial. If the viewer doesn't come away with
some of the most workable and entertaining effects I¹ve seen in some time, they should
try stamp collecting."
- Larry Becker
"The effects I saw are very clever and seem to have no
explanation. Marc handles his audience well and leaves them with a very good feeling about
- Richard Osterlind
"Marc Spelmann has an inspired Alchemical knack at combining
ideas and principles in proper measure to create new life. His reworking of classic ideas
and effects will leave you breathless. The Spelmann touch is close to a knock over the
head with a club. It hits you where it counts and leaves you dazed, blurry-eyed, and
excited. Do yourself a favor and study Marcs work, I think you too will find yourself
highly rewarded for your effort."
