Subject: Derren Brown lecture video

This is an original PAL VHS copy of International Magic's Lecture Series on
video featuring Derren Brown. Brown performs 45 minutes of hardcore
mind-reading and close-up hypnosis. Volunteers are slammed into
trance-states, achieving bizarre mental connections with each other in some
mind-blowing routines that have earned Derren his dynamic reputation. The
following signature effects are performed:

LIFT: A spectator's arm is immobilised. Then controlled remotely, by the
will of another volunteer.
PLEROPHORIA: A deck of cards is thoroughly shuffled by a spectator yet
Derren, while facing away, names each card in order.
SMOKE: An incredible routine, where a card that has been merely thought of
by a spectator, is first named by Derren then disappears from an untouched
deck only to impossibly appear well wait and see.
COIN READING AND BENDING: The date and denomination of a volunteer's coin,
unseen and untouched by Derren, is identified. Then slowly bent at the will
of another volunteer. REMINISCENCE: A hypnotised spectator merely thinks of
a memory, a number and a picture. All are then perfectly described in
immense detail by both Derren and audience members. This mind-blowing
routine is Derren at his very best.

The performance is followed by an explanation of Plerophoria and a
demonstration of mentally forcing an imaginary card, plus some extremely
valuable discussions on presentation and Derren's philosophy of 'Invisible
Compromise' as expounded in his book 'Pure Effect'. An immensely useful
video for both the budding and established mentalist. Duration of tape is 80
minutes and has been played only a couple of times.
