A great evening with Jamie,very informative,clearly explained acts and most entertaining,I will certainly look out from any other performances from him..10 out of 10 !
I have so much positive things to say about todays course and couldn't be more grateful for a company like Alakazam to have great production with amazing talent of Jamie. I'm not afraid of anything, nor do I get scared as I am a horror finatic however; this production setup with the special FX you guys threw in with the music, and Jamie's setup, words, teachings was honestly the scariest experience I have gone through. You don't know what to expect at every moment Jamie goes into his special creepy box lol. It is truly amazing and so glad I was able to watch this beginning to end in New York, USA Live :) To add: This is exactly why i wish i lived in the UK as all my time in magic over the year people in the USA don't give bizarre/ haunted magic great reviews. Today was the icing on the cake of why people here write not great/ bad reviews on products you all today named out as the best effects in the UK - and that is because this kind of magic involves a lot more work on your presentation and it is storytelling. People get whatever props they get and expect that to be it and to say a few lines.. similar to how Jamie changed the double cross routine to the haunted version which i absolutely love and I have great ideas for things like exact change by Gregory Wilson, other coin/card/mentalism fx that just trying to think more of making it my own & more about the words I say versus the props I have. It was great to have a course focus on things that are infact great magic, but really today focused on how well Jamie does & gives all people inspiration because of the stories to present it in a way to be remembered and give the spectator an experience, not just a magic trick. I am very glad to have been able to do this academy course and will be reviewing too. If i can make another one I would love to if not I am glad I attended this one and thankful for being connected to those that attended Keep up the great work Alakazam you are the #1 company in the world in this industry and I always speak nothing but the highest class of everything you do and release. Your favorite customer, - Andrew :) Total experience exceeds 10/10!
Loved that tonight. So much more than just scary magic. Should have been called Super Stort-telling Sorcery. The breakdown of the magic circle routine alone wascworth the price. I'm not normally a sentimental person but I had goosebumps. Jamie is a lovely guy. Thanks again everyone.
Really enjoyed this one. I always thought bizarre magic was not that practical or entertaining...boy, Jamie nailed that one for me! All the material I want to go and perform. Great advice, great chat and impeccably produced by Alakazam. This really is the best format for learning.
This was my first Academy course and it was brilliant. Jamie went through just about everything he's done and explained the ideas in great detail. It was a fun, long evening of magic and I would highly recommend these courses to anyone. The picture quality and sound were great and the camera technology with overhead shots meant you can understand easily. I can't wait for my next two courses.
OK, I can't recommend the Alakazam Online Academy enough. I haven't missed one yet and how could I as they are just full of incredible hints tips and great magic. In this one, Jamie was awesome. He generously shared with us his routines, his thoughts on scripting and the power of storytelling. Priceless! If you missed it, sign up for the next one you will not regret it.
I was going to post a review tomorrow after re-watching this course, but I am too excited to not post one now. Jamie provided solid and well though out routines that incorporate story telling, magic, spirits and even a bit of mentalism. This was my second course taken and can easily say that the Academy is a BARGAIN by any measure. Daws' creativity and innovation, even when utilizing standard effects to achieve a dramatic and affecting end, was clearly on display here.. I often perform séance and story telling effects and there were several ideas that I will incorporate immediately. Cannot recommend these courses highly enough.
This academy w/ Jamie was a bit different than the others (which are great) ... I won't make this long but will tell you that if you want to learn how to create incredible 'props' and put them into an 'awesome story'.. you WILL learn some of the most important information in magic.. and a hint.. it's not about a difficult 'move' ... whao, it put so much into light for me. THANK YOU, Jamie for such VALUABLE info that we all can take and USE moving forward! Pure GOLD!
There is just so much information !! Jamie is a very engaging teacher and Dave asks the questions that everyone is thinking, a much underestimated skill !! These sessions are just getting better and better.I love the idea of a dark slant on established routines.My creative juices are really engaged. The logistics of the coarse are fantastic.Production values are superb. I cannot recommend the Academy enough. Don't miss out !!!!Write Review
