Join Jamie for his first Master Class on Gospel Magic: GETTING INTO GOSPEL MAGIC. Each session contains video footage and pdf's related to the content for your reference.
In this course you will start with a concise, yet complete introduction to WHAT Gospel Magic IS and HOW it can be used! Jamie will even show you (with some worst-case scenario parody) really poor examples of Gospel Magic. But then, just as quickly, you will see a few basic routines using standard props where Jamie will show you how a Gospel Magic Trick can be turned into an Illustrated Sermon that can be used in a children's church service, evangelistic presentation a kids camp or other church-related venues and events.
In this session you will get to see performances of 3 of Jamie's signature routines. Then you will have the advantage of Jamie explaining each routine in detail. The routines use materials that you already have at your home or church... or can be easily obtained.
- Jamie's Simplistic Torn and Restored Bible Paper - Tear up a full letter-size paper sign that represents the Bible. After crumpling the torn pieced together, you are able to UN-crumple the paper to show it as if it's completely restored. Additional ideas are given for other things that could be torn and restored.
- 5 Envelope Force - An easy and adaptable routine to get a spectator to fairly select the final outcome you have predetermined. This can be used to get a spectator to choose a word, picture, object or whatever can be printed, drawn of written onto a piece of paper.
- Salvation String Theory - this is based on an old trick most magicians have forgotten about. You show a length of thick string. Cut it and restore it at any point you choose - you can even restore it in the closed hand of a spectator! A great routine to use to talk about healing, restoration, wholeness or unity.
In this session you will get to see performances of 4 more of Jamie's signature routines. Then you will have the advantage of Jamie explaining each routine in detail. The routines use materials that you already have at your home or church... or can be easily obtained.
- Explain an Illusion - Jamie shows you how he has opened many of his programs where he will use Gospel Magic. Often times you have to help the audience understand that you are only using optical illusions that have real explanations. After using a standard bandana to show how an illusion works, you make a large coin appear from the middle of the bandana. The bandana and coin can be handed out for examination afterwards if you wish.
He Took my Place Folders - Using simple school folders signs that represent Jesus and People seem to change places from a folder that is labeled "REWARD" and a folder labeled "PUNISHMENT" Jesus ends up in the "PUNISHMENT" folder so that people could receive the "REWARD" of eternal life. ANOTHER adaptable routine as Jamie will suggest what else could be in the folder -AND- how else the folders could be labeled.
Trapped But Set Free - The classic Coin Through Handkerchief using a jumbo or large chocolate coin. A coin is plainly placed into the center of a large handkerchief and impossibly trapped inside. After some discussion, the coin is pushed thru the center of the handkerchief - and yet, when the handkerchief is examined, there are no holes anywhere to be found.
The Topic Is… - Imagine allowing a spectator to have complete control over their decision only to find that you already knew the choice they would make? The spectator is given a stack of flash cards that have printed a different topic that could be taught for that day. They shuffle and deal down cards to the table until they want to stop. The card they stop at is shown to match the topic you chose earlier that day. Again - completely adaptable... HOWEVER: Jamie gives you all the graphics to print your own set.
The routines in this Master Class have been culled from Jamie's popular books: "Tricky Messages for Kids - Book 3" AND "BRING IT TO LIFE" Take this into consideration if you already own either of these digital resources.
