For the first time ever Francis Menotti has released some of his most coveted secrets on DVD. On this DVD set you will be taken on a journey into the world of meaningful, powerful, and artistic presentations of magic effects. Not only does Francis teach how to perform some of the routines that have made him a feature performer at the Magic Castle but he gives great advice on how to take your own presentations to the next level. You will see Francis perform for a live real world audience and Francis takes you behind the scenes with a very informative audio commentary. If you're looking for effects, you will be pleased. All the effects on The Treachery of Tricks are extremely commercial and will fool magicians and laypeople alike. If you looking for more than just the standard magic DVD then this is it.

Show:
This 35 minute performance includes many signature presentations that have never appeared anywhere else. While some of the effects are taught in the tutorial section, this is much more than just a series of tricks; it is a full experience, included to demonstrate how to create a memorable show.

Audio Commentary:
Francis reveals the nuances and motivation of his show.

Interviews:
Menotti shares his thinking on magic theory- call backs, foreshadowing, theatrical anchor points, scripting, & character development.

Taught Tricks:
effects with unique presentations that Menotti uses in his professional working repertoire.
  • vivid- the audience accurately "predicts" the type of coin and its date
  • wyrd- turn predictions on their head, anytime, anywhere
  • pieces of nothing- a completely new premise for coin magic
  • two sides of every coin- a quirky 3 coin routine for any situation
  • imaginary coins- a clean 3 coin vanish with devious new moves
  • sync- cards find their mates, in increasingly more amazing way
"Francis Menotti is a clever, clever man and I will eagerly devour anything that he is willing to share."
- Kevin James
