ENLIGHTENED CARD MAGIC DVD
Luis Otero's Enlightened Card Magic DVD
Luis Otero is one of Latin America's
leading professional magicians. He is in constant demand for his shows at
theaters, private parties and corporate events. He has many television
appearances to his credit in addition to performing and lecturing worldwide.
He began his career as a very successful restaurant magician in Venezuela
where he also founded the Sociedad Venezolana de Ilusionismo and the
Cartomágica de Caracas.
On this DVD he performs and teaches the
outstanding and well-thought-out card routines that he performs for lay
people and magicians. This is a repertoire of advanced card magic that is
beautifully routined and presented.
Routines performed and explained:
Opener: A visual routine where a card is inserted face up into the deck
so half of it sticks out. While in full view the card instantly turns face
down and just as visually it changes into the face up selection.
By Estimation: A selected card is lost in the deck and a favorite
card is placed under a spectator's hand. A number is named as you
cut a packet containing that many cards. The card at the named number is
shown to be the favorite card while the actual selection is
found under the spectator's hand.
To Bill Change: A selected card visually changes into paper money and is
later found in your pocket.
A signed bill is folded and placed inside a card box while a signed
selection is lost in the deck. You make three attempts to find the card. On
the third attempt you fold the signed bill using "Cartogami" as it visually
changes into the signed selection. The signed bill is then found back in the
Jazz Aces: An Ace Assembly based on the Peter Kane classic where the
aces vanish one at a time from between indifferent cards and appear in a
leader packet. As a kicker finale all four Aces change places with the four
A card is looked at in the deck. The deck is spread on the table and in an
instant you reach inside and pluck the selection.
Aces: A masterful routine where the four Aces are lost and shuffled into
the deck as you immediately cut to them in record time. As a kicker ending
the deck is now shown in new deck order with the rest of the cards in
numerical and suit order.
Collectors: The four Aces are placed on the table as three cards are
selected and lost in the deck. The four Aces then vanish one at a time while
face-up on top of the deck. When the deck is spread the four aces are seen
face-up with the selections sandwiched between them.
Coincidence: This is a showpiece that Luis uses to close his shows and
frequently get standing ovations. The multiphase routine begins with the
spectator shuffling the deck face-up and face-down and continues with many
coincidences where selected cards match their mates under impossible
conditions. The deck is then used for a card control sequence where the
cards obey your command as they are found in any face-up and face-down
sequence you or the spectators request. As an amazing finale the face-up and
face-down cards are now shown to be in identical order.
