Cameron Francis – Penguin Live Lecture 2 (March 26th, 2017)
“Cameron’s Magic is engaging and full of surprises!” – Aldo Colombini
“One of the most creative magicians I have met in a long time.” – Richard Sanders
“I have concluded that Cameron Francis is in league with the Devil. No other explanation for his continual clever thinking will suffice.” – Peter Duffie
“This is one of the guys to watch out for, folks.” – David Forrest
“… a brilliant thinker in magic.” – Bob Solari
“Cameron is the MacGuyver of magic. You give him three items and he will give you 10 crowd pleasing effects in return.” – Ryan Schlutz
What will he teach?
Cardnection – One of Cameron’s favorite openers. A spectator freely selects a card (really!). The deck is given a few cuts. Another spectator freely touches a card – it is the first spectator’s card!
Oh, No, Not Another Thing! – After fairly losing the four Aces in the deck, they instantly reappear in four different places.
Precursor – A super commercial Ace Assembly.
Over And Out – The Aces cleanly reverse in the deck and then transpose with a selection.
Absorption – Four Jacks “absorb” three selections in a completely baffling manner.
Straight Time – Inversion meets Triumph in one very commercial effect.
Eat Fresh – Inspired by the Buck Twins’ “Subway” effect. But you don’t have to have the skill of Dan or Dave to do it. Lucky you.
Shades of Silver – Chink a chink with only four coins. No extra coins or gimmicks.
Hold That Ghost – A variation of Roy Walton’s Ambitious Ghost with a one-two punch ending.
Reswindled Again – Caleb Wiles’ “Reswindled” reloaded!
