Zen Magic with Iain Moran

“Iain is both a fantastic magician and a brilliant teacher, Zen Magic is the perfect combination of fun and skill - I’m already saving my money for his next release!” Magic Orthodoxy
"Zen Magic is a considerable collection of card tricks, with a couple of coin effects to pace the action. These are NOT self-working effects, and are created for magicians who enjoy fooling an audience -and- entertaining a table of magicians. Closing kickers on a number of effects add a level of sophistication magicians welcome. You'll really like Zen Magic.. I did.." Rick Carruth - The Magic Roadshow Journal, Reviewer

“Don't let Iain's softly spoken charm deceive you, his magic is devious hard-hitting commercial stuff that will knock your spectators for six!” Shaun McCree
"He's got his feet firmly in both places here. The cleverness of the routines and the skill of them and the knowledge behind them, plus making them really commercial." Steve Faulkner, Reviewer
Iain Moran’s ZEN MAGIC is a collection of absolute barn storming close-up effects - 10 routines (eight card tricks and two of Iain’s signature coin routines) - and each is a SOLID GOLD winner. Indeed, each one could have been a best-selling single trick release. Iain has truly honed and perfected each one into a tour-de-force of magical jujitsu.
Perfectly constructed for maximum impact and pure magical content, Iain also prioritises a ‘belt & braces’ approach to handling. With the practised hand of a man who performs professionally day in, day out, these tricks are built to WORK.
Counting on Them - Imagine performing a trick that fools everyone, and then explaining how to do it… and then leaving them even more fooled than before!
Magician’s Nephew - You and your spectator both choose cards, and lose them back in the deck, and then, astonishingly, find each others cards!
Thanks to Lance, John and Dave - A signed card vanishes and appears back in your pocket, time and time again, before the kicker that they never see coming!
Quantum Sandwich 2.0 - A baffling double sandwich routine, with a signed card, then finishes with a visual and shocking kickback! Brains will fizz!
TUC3 - Fast and furious is the vibe for this unrelenting coin routine, with productions, transpositions and vanishes that will leave them reeling!
Easy To Find - A super-clean sandwich style effect with a dash of mentalism to finish them off!
Fifty Some - A double whammy that you can build into any card box! First a chosen card appears inside, and then a prediction impossibly appears on the case - and it’s examinable!
Prime Importance - A visual shocker where a blank card visibly prints into a selection, first the back design, and then the face, and then finally the signature!! This is a keeper!
Silver Sequence - Another coin routine that will leave you spectators picking their jaws from the floor!
Picking Pockets - Easily the most astonishing version of the ‘Interchange’ plot ever conceived. Four jacks, isolated in four different pockets, slowly and cleanly change places with four signed aces, which are then removed from the pockets the jacks had been in! KILLER!
