Artist Interviews: Ferguson talks about new DVD

August 23rd, 2010 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under Artist Interviews, Products


Artist Interviews: Ferguson talks about new DVDRich Ferguson has made a heck of a career with his brand of magic and mentalism. For years, he has earned repeat performances based on how he blends the two fields — bucking today’s trend of specialists (NBC marketed “Phenomenon” based on finding the next great mentalist, not magician, etc.).

The good news: His latest video, “This is Mentalism,” further explores that mix: It features 11 routines that he has been using to slay spectators. It features strategies and methods direct from his working repertoire that are street-ready and impromptu.

The better news: Mentalism doesn’t have to be such a specialized field. In this podcast interview, he talked more about the benefits of mentalism, how it affects spectators on a deeper level and how it’s more forgiving and resistant to errors. He also dishes a great technique about how one strategy can be incorporated into the magic tricks you already perform.

The best news: “This is Mentalism” is just the beginning. There’s another video in the works. Find out more in this podcast interview with the Icebreaker. Enjoy:
