Hi Everyone,

I am so excited to announce our next lecture! Thanks to a friendly nudge from Howard Hamburg, Allan Ackerman will be giving a LIVE, online lecture for the Magician's Forum!!

Allan was a student of Ed Marlo and is an absolute expert with a deck of cards! He's a great teacher and actually served as a professor of mathematics at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. His gift of teaching has served our magic community well as Allan has used those skills to teach sleight of hand to us through a number of books that he's published as well as many instructional DVD's.

This LIVE lecture will take place online (via Google Hangouts) on Nov. 18th at 2pm (Pacific) which gives you the opportunity to interact with Allan and ask him questions! 

The lecture will be recorded so that if you're unable to attend the LIVE lecture, you can still watch it at your leisure through a private YouTube link that you will be given when the event is over.

The cost is a bargain at only $5.99!

Please do me a favor and take a moment to register now: https://goo.gl/d8wLVr

This lecture is open to anyone so please help me spread the word by sharing the link with your friend via social media.

I'm grateful to Allan for his willingness to share his extensive knowledge of magic with us. I hope that you'll take advantage of this great opportunity.

Thank you for supporting our LIVE lectures! 

Your friend,

Rudy

Hi Fellas,

I just wrapped up a test call with Allan Ackerman and wanted to remind you that there is still time to register!

He told me that he's going to be sharing 10 effects with us. Some unpublished material as well as some items using the memorized deck. He demonstrated a great sandwich effect that looked incredible!

For just $5.99 this is an incredible bargain.

Please take a moment to register now: https://goo.gl/d8wLVr

Thanks!

Rudy

Hey Rudy, do you know if there will be any faro-related effects?

I guess if he already has the structure of his lecture, there can be no "requests"...

Man, that was a great lecture!!

I apologize for the sound issues, but I think that with a little patience and grace you'll find that Allan gave us FAR more than our money's worth. The unpublished material was incredible!

I appreciate all of those who support our online lectures. It's not easy to secure lecturers, but I feel blessed that we've had such incredibly talented magicians offer up their knowledge and experience to the member of our Magician's Forum.

Coming up on December 16th at 2pm (Pacific)... Rafael Benatar!!

See you then!

Rudy

Great lecture! I'm a big fan of Allan's work. Great to see some of the unpublished stuff too. I have almost everything he's published. I need the Baker's dozen...

Hello Forum Members! I obviously agree with the posts above -- the Ackerman Lecture was EXTREMELY informative -- not only learning some of the great routines presented, but simply having the opportunity to see how a great innovator thinks regarding all aspects of card magic from the simple sleights that are often neglected to some of the more detailed work required to achieve card magic miracles. I am definitely going to enjoy pouring over this lecture as it was packed with so many great ideas. I have stated this several times before, but this is absolutely one of the very best features of the Forum -- I'm so glad to be a part of it and would encourage all of you to take advantage of the opportunities to view some of the very best seasoned masters of close-up Magic. Thanks Al and Rudy -- great stuff indeed -- johnny

Hi Fellas,

Here is the edited video of Allan's lecture. Please give it about half an hour to upload to Youtube.

Again, I'm sorry for the sound issues but truly feel that this was worth the price of admission.



If you're unable to view the video, it's because I need the email address that you use to log in to your Youtube account. Send me a PM and I'll update it straight away.

Thanks again for supporting our LIVE online lectures!

Rudy

Thanks Evan! I appreciate your kind words. Its hard not to feel the burden when things don't go as planned. 

I appreciate the grace and understanding for circumstances beyond our control.

Actually, Evan, I believe that's the wrong one. This is what Allan was using, I think:

http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/switcharoo-by-mark-mason-p-10387.html#.WhEyxUqnGUk

I first saw this used by Mike Close in his Pothole trick.

Maybe I missed it above, but we'll need Allan's email in order to purchase his items. I have an old one which doesn't seem to work.

Could you post Allan's current email?

Thanks!

The Allan Ackerman lecture was loaded with great stuff. At one point Allan quoted David Roth - "The difference between a coin move that fools and one that doesn't is lack of adjustments." Allan applies this concept to cards with items like the Oops Addition and some reverse spread technology. There is much to be learned from this lecture besides the tricks themselves.

I went through the unedited lecture and took some notes. I went into some detail on the cards to pocket routine but mostly there are notes with time signatures so you can get the the key places quickly.

I don't think reading the notes gives anything away. You'd need the lecture video as well. But just to be sure, I'll send the PDF to Rudy and he can email it to the people who paid for the lecture. Or, if it seems appropriate, he can just post it here.

The time frames referred to are from the unedited video. They won't apply to the edited video that was posted. The link to the unedited video is below. It is only accessible to those who paid.

Lecture: Allan Ackerman Nov 18, 2017

Hi Michael,

I believe that you can paypal the $5.99 and Rudy will add your name to the list so you can view the video.

These $5-$6 prices are awesome bargains.

Hello!  I just wanted to give a very special "shout out" to Mike Powers for taking the time to put his notes of Ackerman's awesome lecture together for all of us and to Rudy for sending all those who attended a a pdf copy via email.  Although not necessary, this was extremely helpful  -- an "unexpected" gift (in addition to the lecture itself)!  Thanks so much guys for consistently going the extra mile for us Forum members -- genuinely appreciated by everyone, I'm sure!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  johnny
