Inspiration Vol. 2 DVD by Bebel and Jean-Pierre Vallarino
Inspiration DVD is Bebel and Vallarino's take on some classic tricks from Ed Marlo. First, they show the original version described by Marlo. Then, they discuss and brainstorm on how to improve the original trick to come out with a newer version.
This is also one of the unique opportunity to watch one of the best card magician in the world perform : Bebel.
There are so few and rare footage of him, this is really worth the purchase. Bebel motivates each and every one of his moves and actions. In this DVD, you will understand why his moves are so fluid, why his action are logical and how they are motivated. Beyond the tricks and techniques explained, it is a philosophy of doing card magic described for the first time. Not to mention Jean-Pierre Vallarino, FISM winner and creator of multiple tricks and DVD's over the years, this DVD is the DVD you do not want to miss.
In this volume, 4 routines are performed, brainstormed and improved:
1/ Mexican 3 Card Monte
Bebel shows and fully explains his version of the 3 card monte. This routine is explained into its inner details. Not only the techniques are explained, but each and every move is motivated to make it fluid, magical and flawless.
Jean-Pierre Vallarino describes a move from Marlo that is fairly unknown, yet that can be integrated into a 3 card monte routine.
2/ Card Control and switches
This chapter is dedicated to a technique that was originally used to control a card, and that has been transformed to become a visual card switch. Jean-Pierre Vallarino used this technique in his FISM act. Ultimately, you will be able to transform 4 random cards into 4 aces, but also being able to control the selected card as the spectator shuffle the deck. Very visual and practical!
Then, bebel shows his card switch on the table, allowing you to place any card on the table and transform it into any other card, whether you want to do it face up or face down.
3/ Bluff Pass
Both Jean-Pierre Vallarino and bebel use the bluff pass to perform a sandwich effect: You place two jokers on the table. A spectator selects a card, and with any move of any kind, the selected card is sandwiched between the jokers. In his version, bebel uses a deck with a different back to perform a similar effect.
4/ Ace Leader
PLEASE, NOTE THAT THERE IS NO EXPLANATION FOR THIS TRICK! Unfortunately, we forgot to record the explanation of this trick. However, the brainstorm session is amazing, and the performance is worth the look. beside, since it is a brainstorm session, lots of the explanations are included in the demonstration.
Ace leader is bebel and Vallarino's take on the Mc Donald Aces routine, in order to make it simple and direct. Once again, this is very visual and as clean as this routine can be.
DVD includes both French and English audio. You select the language of your choice at the opening of the DVD.
