Magic Review - Meditations by James Went


In this magic review we take a look at Meditations by James Went. A 2 disc DVD set of card magic from James Went and Big Blind Media.

My favorite effects from the project are Collectors, Broken Triumph, and Roy's Sandwich.

All of the techniques on this project are really good, and they all have a very casual and relaxed feel to them which I really enjoy.

My favorite techniques on the project are the 4 of a kind production #1 the relaxed pass the spread half pass, and the T.I.T.T.I.E.S Peek.

I enjoyed the project and there is some fun stuff on here so I think you will enjoy it. I'm also really curious about what James Went will put out in the future.

There are some sample routine videos to view over at big blind media so if your interested check those out. www.bigblindmedia.com Title: James Went Meditations Format: DVD or Download Creator: James Went Cost: $34.71 Skill Level: Intermediate - Advanced Run Time: 3+ Hours Available from: www.bigblindmedia.com Magicians Choice Rating:4 Contents

DISC 1

TRICKS

Inevitable - This is James' version of the open predition. I really enjoy this version of the effect. The method is really clever.

*Roy’s Sandwich - This is a combination of triumph and the sandwich plot inspired by Roy Walton. This is my favorite effect on this disc.

For Krenzel - This is a very straight forward Reversal with a mentalism presentation. Think Marlo's Future Reverse done by Ken Krenzel.

Conditional Triumph - This is an impromptu effect but there is a lot going on here.

*SandIwich Thing - This sandwich effect has a surprising and very visual component to it.
