The Influencer by Lewis Le Val (eBook)
This download from Lewis Le Val contains 3 impromptu mentalism effects that require no gimmicks, minimal setup and can be performed with borrowed objects.
A prediction card is given to a spectator to keep in their pocket. They shuffle the deck and name a number. You immediately begin dealing the cards one at a time FACE UP. The card at the spectator's chosen number perfectly matches the prediction card that has been in their pocket from the beginning! The best part is, they can change their number WHILST THE CARDS ARE BEING DEALT! They can even randomly call out STOP at any point. No matter what decisions they make, the card will always be at their number or wherever they stop.
- No maths
- No culling
- No bottom or second deals
- Genuine shuffles
- Borrowed deck
- Surefire method
Le Val's engaging script and presentation is detailed in the PDF, and you will also receive an 8 minute video download which teaches you the method, an incredibly useful utility move, and also a collection of handling variations for you to choose from.
Le Secret Rouge
You are influenced by a borrowed lipstick to reveal the secret thoughts of its owner. This is direct mind reading! Your spectator thinks of one of any number of words (or symbols, shapes, anything you want) written on your business card. This is a completely free choice. Then without any fishing, anagrams or guessing, you can prove you know exactly what they are thinking of.
Completely impromptu and zero setup. What if nobody has a lipstick or your spectators are all men? No problem, use one of the beautiful presentations to completely justify bringing your own.
Le Val's Red Secret is a gimmickless (and GENIUS! -Dee Cheistopher) renovation of a classic concept in mentalism with endless possibilities!
Memory Call, or Memo Recall is the perfect, impromptu mentalism effect for the next time someone asks, "Can I film you do something?" They hit record and you explain that you will use a psychological technique to influence them to choose a certain card in the deck. The technique then works, but did they notice the subliminal message? Of course not. Luckily, it's on video! They play the video of your performance back and make a startling discovery as they hear you clearly giving secret instructions to their sunconscious to choose the card that they did!
Super simple method, works every time!
You will receive a PDF and an 8 minute video - Available instantly after payment!

The Influencer- Lewis LeVal
The Influencer offers a few strong effects within this manuscript. Once again, Lewis offers several routines that are strong enough for the working performer, yet easy enough for the beginner. Within this offering, he speaks on 3 different routines, two of which he uses a forcing technique that has been used for years by card magicians. The other technique is a long held and utilized secret of the modern mind reader using a classical idea and handling similar to the original gimmick.
The first effect is basically a card at any number or a stop effect that has a great presentation, as well as an easy handling. The second effect, Le Secret Rouge, is a very nice handling and routine for influence revolving around influencing someone to select on item from several items written on the back of a business card. While the last routine shows how individuals can be psychologically influenced based on language that is later replayed to show how the influence was created.
Thanks Lewis for this manuscript, it has very strong material that is great for every performer.
Lewis Leval is a creative mentalist. In this release of three routines, his centerpiece is "The Influencer" which is a novel ACAAN using an ungimmicked deck and a clever sleight that's done when there is no heat on your hands. In other words, the dirty work is done way up front, long before you turn over the card in the deck at the number picked by the spectator. Don't worry, the sleight is simple. In fact, watching Lewis perform it, I had a fairly good idea how it worked, but your spectators won't. They will have no idea because as Darwin Ortiz says in Designing Miracles, there's backward time displacement. This is an easy, excellent method, one that you'll be doing fairly quickly.
Routine two uses a "swami-less swami gimmick." It too is quite ingenious but not for all performers. I might use it.
Lastly, there is a pseudo-psychological force of a card using The Influencer method, one that you can encourage people to video for playback later to see your influence over their selection. It's not really a new effect, just a variation on the first one. It's cool.
You get a PDF file and a short MP4 video showing you The Influencer sleight and routine. Both are excellent.
So if I'm so high on The Influencer, why only four stars? Simple answer: price. I get that this material is geared to the professional, and the price is to keep amateurs away. But I think that it's still a bit high.
