Creator: Peter Turner
Publisher: World Magic Shop
MSRP: $35
Skill Level: Intermediate
DVD Run time: 1 hour 22 minutes

Type of effect: Mentalism Lecture

Manufacturer's Write Up:

Peter Turner has very quickly established himself as one of the world's leading mentalists.

Due to his forward thinking and ability to design a beautiful premise behind a routine, he is in constant demand as a creative consultant, lecturer and entertainer.

This DVD will give you access to a fulfilling EXPERIENCE in which Peter reveals the techniques and his personal philosophies behind ACAAN, PIN CODE DIVINATIONS & UNEXPLAINED PHENOMENA.

Most of the material uses very little or is entirely prop-less meaning that you can add these as stand alone routines or use them to enhance your existing material. Sit back... relax... enjoy THE EXPERIENCE

How accurate is the ad copy? spot on accurate

What's in the box? DVD only

How are the production values: filmed like a live lecture, it's not meant to be shiny and polished.

Filmed at LADS 15 "Lectures and Dealers" September 2015
Peter was a lecturer along with
Morgan Strebler
Sean Heydon
& Arron Jones

Tricks Taught:
1. Phone Lock - UNLOCK
2. Birthday Guess
3. encyclopedia of stage hypnosis - impromptu stage hypnosis
4. Two card choice- truth and lie
5. Any card to any number
6. And there are some number tricks with a phone calculator

Peter talks about
verbal acrobatics - dual linguistics
discussion of the berglass effect
How has Magic changed your life
The importance of consulting with someone
and answering the heckler who says, "If you're a mind reader what am I thinking of right now?" (I loved his response)

Is it well taught: Peter follows a train of thought, but he's a very organic teacher and he allows the moments to flow into each other. He tries to cover all of his material, but at the same time really tries to answer the questions of the audience.

My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked): I loved his stories, examples and theory even much more than the tricks itself and I think that's the benefit of getting something like this.

How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) like most of Peter's work this is really geared to stage mentalism. These are not tricks that work as well on your friends.

Overall score: 10/10

Is this the same lecture as The Experience DVD or even Penguin Live?

I like Peter's work but I don't know if there is any new content on this lecture from what is already out there by him.

Hi Theo - I haven't seen the Penguin Live lecture I'm afraid - this one was filmed at a UK convention called LADS 2015. It is a really good lecture which gives you the measure of the man - who is a talented performer. There are some wonderful subtle details you'll pick up on the way, as well as some strong routines. For me I think it is some of the details which stood out - rather than specific effects - but I love the cheek of some of his methods. You can read a more detailed review here:

It's not what you do but the way that you do it!
