Carney on Ramsay


Lessons for all who wish to understand the art and science of misdirection

Categories: , ,


John Ramsay was one of the world’s greatest exponents of visual and psychological misdirection. His most famous application of these ideas was in his brilliant Cylinder and Coins and Coins in the Hat. John Carney is one of Ramsay’s greatest admirers, owing much to that master teacher. In this enlightening video, John offers his insights and interpretations of the Ramsay technique, explaining concepts which may be applied in tricks of every description, from close-up magic to stage illusion. Here are the real secrets of sleight of hand; how to effectively apply knowledge of the machinations of the spectator’s mind and eye toward a more perfect illusion. These are lessons for all who wish to understand the art and science of misdirection.

One of the best - if not the best - teachers in magic ... [provides] the tools needed to do great sleight of hand with coins. It gets my highest recommendation.

New to coin magic? This DVD will save you from making the first 25 mistakes, putting you on the right path. Been doing coin magic for decades? You’ll enjoy seeing more than two dozen vanishes done perfectly, and refine your misdirection. John's friendly, avuncular teaching style, make this a great resource for all magicians.

It's like having John hanging out with you giving personal instruction. His discussion on focus and being relaxed can and should be applied to all branches of our craft. Quite simply stated, this DVD is a masterclass from a true master of his craft. Worth 10 times the money.

There are lots of magic videos today with dramatic music, cool edits, lots of sizzle, and even more hype. "Vanishing Coins" delivers the steak. This is a mother load of thoughtful and mature instruction and advice for real-world workers. Thanks!

This like all of John's teachings is outstanding. A private lesson would cost at least 3 times as much and you might get one or two moves. It is so worth it.

Do NOT pass this up if you are serious about your magic.
