Episode 45 – Mentalism on Camera


It is always great to see mentalism getting television and media attention, but what really goes into making successfully filmed mentalism? Often things can be over-edited, creating an unrealistic expectation of mentalism for the general public, is this a problem?


In this episode Francis from the United Kingdom would like me to discuss mentalism in the media on both television and the internet.

While discussing the pros and cons of film and mentalism I also mentioned the following resources, make sure to take a look of them:

‘Making Short Films’ by Max and Clifford Thurlow

‘Book Of Lies’ by Paul Brook

‘Video production handbook’ by Owens and Millerson

    Do you feel that mentalism on video where it can be edited and the audience do not see everything can be harmful for the working performers?

    Hi Paul, thanks for the Podcast, for the whole lot, it is an audio goldmine, I compare it to Conversations with Mindreaders.
    I noticed you deactivated the record Question option, seems the podcast is coming to an end? Had a few for questions to record. If this is the end of the podcast I just wanted to thank you for your time and your selflessness to share this wealth of information with us.
