The False Shuffles and Cuts Project - Liam Montier


"Whether you are a complete beginner, or a seasoned pro looking to brush up on the classics, I can’t think of a better resource of these moves." My Lovely Assistant, 5/5 

"This is another excellent "Project" that the beginning and intermediate student of card magic should have in their video library." Dustin Stinett, Genii Magazine

"There are some great tools taught here and I highly recommend this video to everyone." Marc DeSouza, M-U-M Magazine

"This is an excellent source for learning these sleights and very highly recommended. Something in here for everybody from the complete novice to seasoned pro." Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine

"First, I agree wholeheartedly that cutting and shuffling is a vital part of magic. The ability to convince your audience you've fairly shuffled and mixed a deck is paramount to your success. I'm probably preaching to the choir here.. but I had to say it.. Time is important to me.. and the FALSE CUTS AND SHUFFLES PROJECT was time well spent.." Rick Carruth, Magic Roadshow , Reviewer

"A false shuffle to a stacked deck is an easy technique that is often missed out by mentalists and magicians resulting in their moment of mystery and wonderment to be unnecessarily deflated. Now you no longer have an excuse not to learn one or two false shuffles." Michael Siegel,

"It's a great formula for success in teaching this kind of stuff. This is well suited to a beginner, but I believe that even the advanced technicians amongst us will find some value here as well." Jeff Stone,

"If you have Big Blind Media’s other two Projects by Liam Montier (The Double Lift and Elmsley Count) and like them, this third DVD is a must. If you don’t have them, but want to learn some very useful false cuts and shuffles, this DVD is recommended." Danny Selnick, Linking Ring Magazine

"The DVD is perfect for a complete beginner or intermediate performer, covering overhand shuffles thoroughly and simple riffle shuffles..." Chris Payne, MagicSeen Magazine

"If you are a beginner or a professional, I recommend this DVD. Sit down with a deck of cards and follow along. Your card magic will thank you!" Magic Junkie, Reviewer

There is nothing more valuable in the card magician’s arsenal than the ability to convince your audience you are shuffling the deck, when in actuality you aren’t. If your spectator’s believe the cards are being mixed, whilst all the time you retain control of their order – then you can perform true MIRACLES! Indeed, this one skill can help transform simple self working tricks into jaw dropping slabs of IMPOSSIBILITY!

There are thousands of ways to false shuffle and cut the deck, but this project is not a cold encyclopaedic list of them. These are the A1, 24 Karat GOLD techniques that host Liam Montier has sought out and road tested on your behalf. To make the grade the featured cut or shuffle had to be practical, utterly deceptive and something YOU WOULD USE!

These powerful, deceptive skills are within the technical reach of any card handler (including some that are SO easy you could do them in your sleep!), and will have you up and running in no time.

Learning just one or two of these techniques is essential, but learning more will enable you to ‘mix and match’ the skills to create the unquestionable impression that you really are shuffling the pack. These are practical techniques - whether you are working walk-around magic, or sitting at a coffee table with some mates, you will be fooling them all in no time!

And at the end of the project four incredible magic tricks are also taught, so you can head out and test your new skills straight away!
