Michael Ammar - Easy to Master Thread Miracles - S - Magic DVDs - China Magic Shop - Magic Tricks, Wholesale Magic, Magic Supplies.

There is more powerful potential in just a few feet of invisible thread than almost anything else in magic. This is magic that becomes the stuff of legends. No matter what type of magic you perform, from the purest sleight of hand to the largest grand illusions, this is the type of magic that creates conversations and reputations. People vividly remember the moment they saw something levitated and animated just inches away from their eyes. Continuing in the Easy to Master tradition, this new set of videos is organized in a very structured fashion, taking the viewer from simple animations with short lengths of thread that can be easily set up and managed through intermediate effects that are a bit more involved and finally ending up with elaborate effects that are truly mind-bending. Each video in this series also contains valuable supporting information on lighting, concealment, and theory that will stimulate your thinking well beyond the featured magic.


Volume 1:

Our journey begins with one of the newest, most fascinating genres in all of magic—the incredible invisible elastic thread created by DuPont and patented in 1959. You’ll discover what it is, where to find it, and the amazing things you can do with it, including Finn Jon’s killer application—the invisible elastic loops. You’ll create truly astonishing animations and levitations almost anytime, anyplace using this and other applications featured on this video for the first time.

Following this we look at the close-up animating ability of visible, but hidden threads. This section contains the most practical, commercial method for performing Stefan Schutzer’s Self-Folding Bill ever revealed.

Then after learning the best of the classic magic for the stand-up performer using the Traditional Reel, including an amazing, visual penetration of the mike stand, James George joins Michael for an overview of one of the most compelling inventions of the last 50 years—The Invisible Thread Reel. You’ll see a complete comparison of the wide range of I.T.R. gimmicks, featuring full screen close-ups of exactly how to work with and reload this powerful gimmick.
