Less is More - Beyond The Book

$99.00

Not content to publish his devilry and be done - Ben Earl conducts an in-depth retrospection into the carefully balanced finesse and subterfuge of Less is More, going beyond the pages of the book to deliver more than 8 hours of expanded reordings.

From replete walk-throughs of the effects from the book, through alternative handlings to performer framing, disposition and behavioural stances - with each session rounded out with Q&A Sessions from the original live broadcast, Less is More: Beyond the Book is a masterclass in progressive climaxes, leaving no out for the audience but astonishment.

Running Time: 8 Hours 7 Minutes
Delivery: Video Streaming

Studio52 presents a brand new two day card magic event with Ben Earl, surrounding his acclaimed book – Less Is More.

Two days        Six sessions        Six interactive Q&A's        Over 8 hours of LIVE-recorded content and a whole weekend of magic!

Less Is More was a two day, online event bringing the book to life on screen. Ben goes beyond the pages with new insights, techniques and routines — breathing new life into this modern-day classic.

With private hangouts after each session and long discussions into the night—creating a ‘convention feel’, this is not just an opportunity to enhance your magic but to explore the book further with questions from like-minded people answered by Ben during the Q&A sessions.

You do not need to have read Less Is More to benefit from these video sessions, but if you have, it will be an amazing visual companion.

Only beginner skill is required… but the results are guaranteed to be world class!
