Hey guys,

I just wanted to give you a heads up that I'm starting a new project to focus my time and energy right now into being productive and attempt to give something back to the community and art form that I love.

On my site Psych-Artist.com I plan to continue writing and publishing short essays.

If there is anything you'd like me to write about or discuss, I'm happy to take suggestions here.

I'm very fortunate to have had the career I've had and would love to be able to share success stories and help you guys avoid potential failures that I've learned from.

Obviously there is a chance of the public stumbling on it (which is why it's all listed under my real name and kept separate from my performing name), so as much as I can't get into specific methods, I think there are more important things I can be sharing anyway.

So basically ... ask away and allow me to write about it so hopefully there will be some benefit for at least a few people.

Much love & stay safe,
Colin

Thank you kindly sir!

It's just getting started and I truly feel I have a lot to give.

... I just want to know how to best channel and priorities my thinking.

Good thoughts,
Colin

I'd be interested in discussions about:

1) How you plan to cope with mentalism in a no-touch post Covid world
2) What some of the highlights of AGT were like -- the challenges of mounting an effect within such tight timelines
3) Any insights you have for engaging large audiences

I think you are at the start of what could be an outstanding project. I wish you well with it,

David

Truly means a lot Drew!!

Most importantly, for people going stir crazy at home, I'm aiming to add a new essay every other day to provide some food for thought, positive creative exercises or answer questions on areas I can best asset people.

Good thoughts,

I don't buy much mentalism these days, but I'm enough of a fan of Colin's work that I got the whole package. I've watched ForceSight so far, and it is frankly stellar. His new mechanical twists on a prop we all know and love are ingenious by themselves, but the real gold is seeing the mileage he then gets out of it Ė the structure, the subtleties, and how he maximizes the revelations. And that information can be applied to lots of other props and techniques. Highly recommended.

Message: Posted by: David Thiel (Apr 14, 2020 09:07PM)
Colin wrote to me this morning and asked me if I would take a look at these four downloads and post a review. Since I happen to have a little time on my hands (sigh), I was happy to agree. Just before the review, let me tell it straight: There is no way I would say anything was good if I honestly didn't believe it -- no matter who the artist is. I mean it.

That said...here's the review:

I've spent the day with Colin McLeod. For nearly four hours he's been on my iPad, chatting and instructing -- sharing stories and insights into the creation of four signature routines. I've just finished watching the fourth and I find myself sitting here in silence...with ideas pounding through my mind. There's a palm sized red mark in the middle of my forehead from me smacking myself, asking me why I didn't think of that.

Each one of the four routines is a jewel, cracking with original thinking, manic attention to tiny detail, crystal clear instruction and complete respect paid to nuance. This is THE no-kidding BEST set of routines I have ever seen. If you're interested in watching one of the most inventive minds in mentalism tackle classics and upgrade them into something utterly extraordinary, you need to consider taking a very close look at these offerings.

FORCE-SIGHT is the crown jewel of the collection. It requires nothing but a gently modified pad. The audience sees you read multiple minds -- one after the other, coming up with remarkable revelations. They see you divining PIN numbers, revealing private memories in a system that is diabolically simple and uses an item you can modify yourself in an hour or another item that has been widely commercially available. It's not the method that is groundbreaking -- although there are some very innovative modifications that can be employed. What blew me away -- and I DO mean 'blew me away' -- is where his thinking takes this effect. Ideas from other routines, original concepts...nuance. This whole routine is genius and the presentation is elegant and highly commercial. Absolutely my favorite in the set.

PSYCHO is something you have probably seen Colin do on AGT or in performance at mentalism conventions. I saw him performing this at MindVention one year and he and I chatted about it. I was mystified as to how it had been done. I was able to put some of the pieces together, but to deconstruct the whole routine was made impossible. Okay...it IS impossible to take apart because layer after layer of what Bob Cassidy called "Logical Disconnects" are built into the structure. It remains one of the best confabulation routines I have ever seen. It marries a "Which Hand" concept with confabulation in a routine that really works.

With most confab effects the performer solicits input from the audience and in the end -- to no one's surprise -- he reveals that he knew what they were going to decide on all along. And that's where they fall flat because the only one who is really impressed with what's just happened...is the performer. This effect is loaded with entertainment and energy built into a steady rising action to a powerful reveal that will bring the house down. (I almost wrote "a steady rising action that leads to a powerful climax"...but that just sounded wrong.) Fun, brilliant and wildly entertaining. Great fun. Outstanding mentalism.

THIEF is Colin's treatment of an all time classic: Max Maven's transcendent "Desire." I have been doing this effect as a staple of my shows for nearly ten years. I love it's adaptability and the simplicity of its design. Colin's solutions for some of the rougher parts of the effect are bold and very clever. If you're not already doing Desire, consider taking a look at THIEF. It's smooth, clean and very well thought out.

ENVision is a series of ideas for things you can do with envelopes of all sizes. Great concepts for everything from confabulation routines where the prediction is presented as in a sealed envelope to headline predictions. What is fascinating about this download is not just the routines talked about but the way Colin's thinking can be applied to so many other effects. Essentially if you're in the market for doing a prediction in a sealed envelope and you want to know EVERYTHING about how to make it happen? This is it. Consider it as an option for a media interview, or a high end corporate event. How about a prediction on a playoff game (assuming there will be playoff games again.) Outstanding applications for close up as well as stage. I really loved the versatility of concepts presented in this download.

The truly wonderful thing about this collection aren't just great road-tested routines. They are certainly that -- and there's a powerful something to be said of those rare events where seasoned performers actually share ALL of the really good stuff they've learned from performing the same routine hundreds or even thousands of times. But what really excites me is the way the concepts built into these routines can be applied to an infinite number of possibilities. I love ideas that are adaptable to my own style and these four video downloads are perfect candidates for "ideas to build on."

Here's the bottom line: when I want to take my mentalism to graduate school, I open up Bruce Bernstien's Unreal. So far that one work has been my go-to for inspiration -- my own University of Mentalism. Up till now there hasn't been a real companion piece. But I have one now. Colin McLeod's brilliant Pro Pack is in its own way as good as Unreal for challenging thinking and exciting concepts. It is a masterwork.

It really is an example of an offering to the community that truly is an investment. Speaking of that investment: all four routines are available in a package for $129.99 or can be purchased individually. The package discount only applies for the next six days. If any of the concepts here tickle your fancy, I strongly suggest you head over to psych-artist.com and have a look. You just might be seeing one direction of the future of mentalism.

Following up on my earlier post after having watched a second video, Psycho, here are my thoughts. The highest praise I can give to a release is not to say that I'll use it myself; rather, the highest praise I can say is that it has given me the tools and inspiration to make something I do better. Psycho has done that, in spades. A this point, even if the remaining two videos I haven't yet watched turned out to be absolute crap (which I highly doubt), I would still feel I'd gotten my money's worth.

PS - In case there's any doubt, I paid full price for these, and Colin had no advance knowledge that I'd be buying them in the first place, let alone what I'd say about them.
Message: Posted by: Colin (Apr 15, 2020 03:15AM)
I need to be honest, I've had tried to write a response to this three times today, but struggled because I am simply overwhelmed with the response.

When you perform your creations for real people it's scary. However they improve and become more honed and and defined over time. But when you release them to your peers and colleagues, that's a different fear entirely. You have one chance to share them in a way where you not only do them justice, but want to enable and empower everyone with the knowledge and the confidence to go and perform them as close to perfect, off the bat, as possible.

I'm truly relieved, honored and delighted that they are having the positive impact I wanted them to. I tried to pour my heart and mind into these and give everything I could.

The fact that people I respect and honest strangers have been so positive about these has filled me with joy.

Guys, thank you.

I agree with everything Drew says in his review. I was glad that I saw the message from magic Cafť about this offer.

I was fortunate enough to buy as well. I think this will be one of my better purchases. Real practical methods and better than purchasing fancy new prop. I feel like I will get a lot out of these routines and the video instructions that come with this are top notch. I am more of a visual learner. This is at a great price for anyone to buy.

Sale ends in 7 days and I'm going to stay true to that to both respect everyone who did take the risk up front and because others have confirmed the value in this stuff.

For those who aren't looking to buy yet, feel free to continue to enjoy/disagree with my essays I've going to continue publishing.

I could not agree more. These four videos are superb. They set a whole new standard for instructional videos, with actual clips from various real shows (i.e. no pipe dreams). My only regret with these routines is they are so perfect and well thought out, that I will have a real hard time creating my own presentation in stead of just presenting it like Colin is. ;-)

Note, but not in the same way.
For stage - it's set up to work with 5 participants, two on stage and 3 in the audience.

For close-up, I'd only use 3 people at most (only one person for the normal pad approach).

But, Colin provides advice about how to set up the pad that is brilliant.

Having purchased the 'Pro-package', Iím loving the new downloads Force-Sight, Psycho, Thief and ENVision. Psycho is possibly my favourite, as itís a fantastic routine that any seasoned performer could adapt to suit their style of performance and character. As with all the other tutorials, Colin breaks down the routine into all its detail, accompanied with a number of his recorded performances with all its nuances in how you can transform it from 'which hand' to a full blown stage performance. Really looking forward to Colins webinar today, later followed by Colins 'The Structure' in how one could incorporate all the other routines to create a whole one man show. Fabulous work Mr Cloud!

Arielhamui - Iíve found the bottom line can vary from pad to pad. I havenít had any issue with it.

However - I have noticed a smaller gap between the bottom line and the bottom of the page on the graph paper pads. This may also sound odd, but Iíve also found less of a gap on the black covered pads. Unfortunately, without the luxury of looking through a pile of them, were locked into what we can get delivered. All is not lost! Give your book a try, you shouldnít have issues with it. To preserve methodology, Iím going to pm you a tip.

Arielhamui - Iíve found the bottom line can vary from pad to pad. I havenít had any issue with it.

However - I have noticed a smaller gap between the bottom line and the bottom of the page on the graph paper pads. This may also sound odd, but Iíve also found less of a gap on the black covered pads. Unfortunately, without the luxury of looking through a pile of them, were locked into what we can get delivered. All is not lost! Give your book a try, you shouldnít have issues with it. To preserve methodology, Iím going to pm you a tip. [/quote]


Having the blackones can say that is the same! But here in the uk are quite cheap... less than a pound so will order a few and see

Hey guys!
For FORCE-SIGHT what size of rhoda pads you recomend? [/quote]

Colin recommends the Rhodia Head Stapled Pad, No11 here: https://www.amazon.com/Rhodia-Staplebound-Notepads-sheets-Orange/dp/B00A6VSH4O/ref=pd_sim_229_1/142-6881562-5266721?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00A6VSH4O&pd_rd_r=48140a16-f976-4e08-b38e-072cc1cb1aab&pd_rd_w=2iirC&pd_rd_wg=XThIX&pf_rd_p=3c412f72-0ba4-4e48-ac1a-8867997981bd&pf_rd_r=SDHCD7ZB43FKXPD0C34D&psc=1&refRID=SDHCD7ZB43FKXPD0C34D [/quote]

Don't bother about that. Its just a commercial break. Colin himself states that he actually uses diy index cards bunch and clearly talks about the advantages in that. And rhoda is a bad fit for this, imo. You can see how its jaws just refuse to shut and Colin has to make an effort hold it shut always.

I am taking the index cards route. But if you insist on using a pad, this should be a better fit, as it looks more organic or normal.

Force sight though is a brilliant power horse and can be taken in many new directions.

During the web session for pro package purchasers, I shared ideas on how to do this effect with spiral bound notepads. I also have index card and versions with other materials that have added features. While I also have about 10 Rhodia pads, in various sizes, I use an alternate version that can be done closeup with groups as small as 5 or 6. Just think it through.

I also liked these downloads. A lot of good thinking.
I have read a lot of Colin's material in the past and one area that he has contributed to that isn't mentioned in the downloads is his use of the sa**d* gimmick. I hope he releases a product dedicated to his tips and routines with that tool alone...

Again, appreciated his thoughts, routining, etc. Hope to see him perform live some day.
