Let us know what you think about Induction!
Induction is a very well-priced double DVD set that is captivating and excellently produced. It is ultimately informative and entertaining. You better get yours soon because at the count of three it will be gone…
With this purchase you get two DVDs. The first is the instructional DVD. The DVD is a studio shoot of the highest quality that is taught by Spidey. It takes the form of a one-on-one lecture with Spidey writing on an erasable white board describing how to do a hypnosis stage show. He details everything from the introduction, the participant selection process, how to gain the trust of your audience, how to induce people into a hypnotic trance, what to do and say, how to test if your participants are truly hypnotized, the order in which to do things and how to end the show. Although the ad-copy states you will learn how “to write original skits and how to present them,” that is not really taught other than a brief suggestion in which you are told to use your imagination. I don’t think this is a real issue because after watching this DVD set, your neurons should be popping with great ideas on what you would do if you were to be a stage hypnotist. The first DVD is over
ours and although I didn’t watch it all in one setting, I could have. It is presented in a very smart way in that is easy to watch. The explanation and instruction is interspersed with examples from Spidey’s live show so you understand what he is teaching on another level. Spidey is an excellent teacher.
At the end of the lecture, he suggest that you don’t immediately go out and try and perform, but to read and learn more about hypnosis. He suggests the titles of a few books on hypnosis which is very helpful because there are so many poor quality books on hypnosis on the market that are useless.
The second DVD is an hour and twenty minutes long and is most of Spidey’s full stage show performed before a large college audience. The show starts from when Spidey walks onto stage and ends after the show. It is edited and cut a bit, but you really get a feel for how a great hypnosis show is laid out and flows. In the show you see how he quiets and manages a young rowdy audience with comedy, authority and strong performance. Spidey is a great performer and has his act down to a science. With this DVD he hands you the keys to kingdom and delivers years of experience.
Watching the second DVD is amazing because you see him hypnotize 30 people on the stage and even some people in the audience. During the show he has the participants do several hysterical skits which include pretending they are playing in invisible instruments in an orchestra, turning into a super hero and acting the part, being stuck in their chair while they are sitting next to a person that has a repulsive odor, acting as a Chinese rap star (and rapping in Chinese), feeling intoxicated and dancing at a party, being unable to stop laughing hysterically, transforming into Karate champions followed by a high pace demonstration, believing that Spidey has become invisible so that they cannot see him despite the fact that he is right in front of them and demonstrating (with clothes on) some very rare sex positions.
The production quality of most of the show is very good. There are some points that the audio quality fluctuates and sometimes it is slightly difficult to understand what is being said, but that is minimally disruptive to the viewer. There are numerous camera angles that are used during the show and the video presentation is excellent. During the show there is some cursing, which is bleeped out.
This is a great project that is for anyone that is interested in hypnosis as a form of entertainment or even anyone that is interested in learning how to induce hypnosis. I saw my first Hypnosis show in the third grade and since then I have been more than casually intrigued by the mystifying process in which someone can be hypnotized. Although I have never hypnotized anyone and probably won’t attempt it (at least anytime in the near future), I think that this is a superb DVD project for anyone that has any interest in hypnosis. And the price is excellent compared to many other resources.
This project gets the highest rating.
