Lecture Overview and Effects 

Jason Ladanye is known for creating high-impact card tricks that play like miracles for lay audiences. These aren’t “pick a card” tricks. These are effects that make you look like a world-class card mechanic. Jason is constantly creating new and original plots that are meaningful and very entertaining. These effects are practical and most importantly, they don’t all rely on knuckle-busting sleight of hand. In this lecture, Jason will teach several killer effects. In addition to teaching the mechanics of the tricks, Jason will share his insights on how to make your show one that the audience will never forget. Learn how to connect with your audience and how to get them hooked—and keep them hooked. He’ll also cover topics such as effect construction, audience management, magic theory, misdirection, dealing with hecklers, developing your character and persona, how to maximize the impact of every trick, and much more! Come see all new effects from Jason’s newest book, Game Changer.

“If I were to describe Jason’s magic from a magician’s perspective, numerous terms would spring to mind: thoroughly thought-out, finely crafted and ingeniously constructed. However, if I want to describe Jason’s magic from the perspective of a lay audience, one word springs to mind: unforgettable.” -Darwin Ortiz
