Annemann's Practical Mental Effects(1-3)

A new chapter for Osterlind Mysteries begins...

For over 10 years, Osterlind Mysteries has tried to offer the finest professional mentalism products for our customers. Now we are about to embark on a totally new endeavor which has been in the works for well over a year - the release of our very first DVD offering produced entirely in-house. And what could be more appropriate than bringing to life one of the most important works in the literature of mentalism: Annemann's Practical Mental Effects!

These first three DVDs, with a combined running time of almost five hours, represent some of the strongest mentalism in history! Richard and Jim have taken this classic material and approached it with the dignity and scholarly attitude it deserves. First, each effect is performed before a lay audience and is then subsequently analyzed to show the real performing secrets behind each routine. The wealth of information in these expositions is priceless! Besides the secret of each effect, professional theatrical mentalism techniques for modern audiences are scrutinized from years of real-life performing. Watching this series will be like a post-graduate course in mentalism!

Almost every effect can be done instantly! With just one exception (the Devil Device), all the props necessary are items you already have or can make up easily. Nothing requires great manipulative skill and almost all if the routines are suitable for close-up, parlor or stage performance. You will use everything!

Additionally, these new DVDs were conceived and created in every aspect by Richard Osterlind and Jim Sisti. These videos have a totally new look and feel and have a production quality that has surpassed any of our previous video projects. This is a serious course on one of the most important mentalism books ever written and we have done our best to give it the honor it deserves.

These first three DVDs represent the first half of a six-volume series. The final three DVDs will be available before the end of the year.

Annemann's Practical Mental Effects(4-6)

Richard Osterlind - Annemann's Practical Mental Effects
Annemann's Practical Mental Effects has been a landmark book for magicians and mentalists since its release in 1944. The routines that are contained in its pages have been influencing mystery performers for over 75 years.

This exciting new DVD series explores the work of Annemann and his Jinx contributors in a scholarly way, analyzing not only the presentation of some of the strongest mentalism ever created but also the thinking behind the effects. Richard Osterlind first performs the effects in their original form before an audience of non-magicians and then very nuance is exhaustively explained with the assistance of Jim Sisti.




On volumes 4, 5 and 6, Richard and Jim return to the same school and do it again, but with manyamplifiedversions of otherPractical Mental Effectsmaterial. For most of these routines, Richard changed the workings and methods slightly (or sometimes very significantly) to make the effects more direct and streamlined. You will love his thinking!

Additionally, we have added what is possibly the best electronic version ofPractical Mental Effectson disc 6. Created specifically for this project, the book was scanned at a high resolution and is entirely searchable. You can open the book on your computer or download a copy to your tablet, smartphone, or e-book reader to enjoy on the go. It's the perfect complement to the material here!

These six volumes truly offer the definitive work on the material from this classic book. There are routines for any situation whether close-up, parlor or stage and, additionally, you will learn classic principles of mentalism which you can apply to your own, original routines. If you ever wondered what this classic material would look like when presented in today’s modern world to a contemporary audience, you now have your chance. Every effect is a stunner!
