I noticed someone uploaded 1 & 4, but somehow missed out on 2 & 3. This is an excellent series: I’m uploading all 4 Dvds here in one tight little package…enjoy. Banachek is one of the world’s foremost mentalists. He is the only mentalist to ever fool scientists into believing that he had genuine psychic powers, only to later reveal that he was fooling them. Performers around the world such as Penn & Teller, “The Amazing” Randi and David Blaine seek his performing expertise. Companies and theaters seek him for his outstanding performing abilities. This four-volume DVD set is like getting private lessons from Banachek.Volume 1 – Mentalism for the Casual Performer – Part 1:Make a pen stand up and write the exact word a spectator is thinking, all by itself! Predict a corporate image chosen by a CEO! Reveal the serial number of a borrowed dollar bill. All these and more are included in this DVD. These effects run the gamut from psychokinesis, telepathy, predictions to psychological influence. These effects are designed to be performed from the intimacy and casualness of your friend’s living room to the trade show floor or the professional stage. Meet Banachek in a personal interview and learn how he started in mentalism and how his career developed as he traveled from England to South Africa ultimately immigrating to the United States.Volume 2 – Mentalism for the Casual Performer – Part 2Make the value of a spectator’s playing card slowly appear on your arm in blood red, anywhere, anytime! Reveal a thought-of number from across the distance separated by phone lines. Engage two people in a fun routine where the performer predicts a page number and a word “seen” by a volunteer on an invisible Palm Top computer. Become a human lie detector in a thrilling and comical adventure. This DVD continues from Part 1 with close-up, stand-up and stage mentalism and mental magic with additional routines including anywhere, anytime effects plus staggering psychological ploys. Learn a multi-phase routine weaving audience direction and sleight-of-hand into one smooth effect. Also, learn the “inside” secrets of what Banachek considers one of the most powerful tools in the mentalist’s arsenal, Pocket Writing. This DVD includes Banachek’s discussion of his “Buried Alive” escape, his Bullet Catch illusion now used by Penn & Teller, the difference between mentalism and mental magic plus comical anecdotes about blindfold drives. You will also see a television clip of Banachek’s “Buried Alive” escape hosted by William Shatner and TV footage of one of Banachek’s early Blindfold Drives.Volume 3 – Psychophysiological Thought Reading – Muscle Reading:Do you want to find a needle in a haystack? Using the power of your mind and a little help from your volunteer, you can find anything through your heightened sense of touch. Almost anything you can do in mentalism can be re-enacted using Psychophysiological Thought Reading. This DVD also includes Banachek’s first national television appearance. Here he uses the Psychophysiological response to find a playing card hidden in a shopping mall. Additional material included in personal interviews explain how to work with agents, getting booked on the college circuit, trade shows and restaurants, performing on the radio, getting publicity, using disclaimers, accepting challenges and more.Volume 4 – Psychokinesis:Learn how to bend cold, hard steel with the “power of your mind.” Make physical objects move, twist and curl up like a wet noodle at will. In true Banachek style, each move, gesture and psychological subtlety is covered in detail. This DVD stands alone from Banachek’s previous work by presenting new, additional details and methods on bending silverware. This also includes methods of bending coins, keys, nails and spikes plus moving objects like pens and pencils.
