Another winner from the Academy. Both days were excellent in terms of the effects presented, but also the wealth of added tips, ideas and background, which could all be widely applied. Lots of excellent practical worker effects. I'm transcribing the steps of each effect and the summary narrative, which Ill then tune to my own presentation style and secret persona :-) A great course. Thank you.
Great workable material. Powerful, but easy to prepare for. Clear and concise instruction. Great job Paul.
Hard to believe but Day 2 is better than Day 1 . Just fantastic !!!!!!!!!!!!
Day 2, only 2 effects in so far but some excellent tips on book tests and a prediction effect with a confabulation feel. Part of the gold in these Live events is the chat after the effect has been shown. I now watch with a note pad and write everything down as I watch.
I'm watching this course live and we are only three routines in and I've already got my money's worth. Seriously. Paul's thinking is simply brilliant! His subtle tips alone are absolute gems - and even his explanations are entertaining. Very much looking forward to the remainder of this two-day course and all that Paul has to offer. Thank you to Paul, Peter, Jamie, and Sarah! Love it!
This is the first Alakazam Academy Course that I have been able to attend live. And I am so glad I did! Not only was I able to learn hard-hitting mentalism effects in real time, I was also able to get immediate answers to my questions and feedback on my comments. As a full-time performing mentalist, I am very picky when it comes to adding routines to my repertoire. Paul's material is polished, logical, and well thought out. It is obvious he is a true professional, and a brilliant creator and performer. I will certainly be adding several of the effects and ideas from this course to my performances. Thank you, Paul, for sharing your genius!
You know it is going to be a good night when the first effect is worth the price of the academy, so simple and a low cost addition to a routine you already do. Paul's thinking behind his routines shows how much he works, and this really is low cost but hard hitting, with minimal props for maximum effect.
Having been a fan of Paul's for getting onto a decade I had to be involved in this lecture. Pauls past work is truly ground breaking. I perform lots of Pauls material and the work in this course is no different. These routines will be going straight into my repertoire. Great solid routines that work and get great reactions. Pure fun mentalism.
Another great start by Paul Brook for this Academy. As always, the real gems come from the nuggets of information that often take the basic effect to another level. All of which are clearly explained by Paul. It's the strength of the Academy format that allows this.
Having attended the first Paul Brook course I knew this would be fantastic, and it is !! The routines are superb and the tips inspirational. Will definitely be using this material. Production values superb as usual. Another quality Alakazam product. Looking forward tomorrow !!
Another great Academy from Paul Brook. Great effects that can be assembled for pennies. It all feels very pure and back to basics eschewing expensive gimmicks. Great real world working advice that everyone recognises as the real gold in these Academys. Great job all round guys.Write Review
