Rick Merrill presented his championship winning magic and lecture at the 2005 MacMillan Magic Convention at the Shaw Theatre, London. In 2006 he travelled to Stockholm for the FISM convention and walked away with first prize, becoming the world champion in Close-Up Magic. Fortunately, the lecture was recorded and in purchasing this, you have the opportunity of seeing a magic world champion in the making, plus his competition performance.
The Predator Sock:- The multi selection card routine that Rick uses to open his regular shows.
Ambitious Card Triumph:- As the title suggests, it's The Ambitious Card combined with a Triumph routine, very effective!
Three Change:- The transformation of three half $ coins into different currencies, all done extremely cleanly and in the hands
The Sharpie & The Coin:- Sharpie magic is what Rick used most in his championship winning performance. This routine is a sample of that magic, visual vanishes and productions of a sharpie and a coin, very practical.
No Hand Vanish:- The ultra clean vanish of a sharpie held at fingertips.
No Hand Change:- A step further from the No Hand Vanish, here the sharpie changes into a pencil, all at the fingertips.
There's also information on the Flip Stick move and Sleeving, beautifully performed with a humourous style that the audience on the day loved, and we're sure you will too!
Great magic, incredible entertainment, wonderful style, The Rick Merrill lecture DVD, approx. 44 minutes, includes recording of Rick's award winning performance.
