The Misdirection Sessions

Misdirection is one of the most misunderstood concepts in magic.
- Many think it’s covering a small action with a big one.
- Others think it’s getting you to look over there, while the dirty work happens.
Both groups are wrong… and James Brown is here to tell you why.
As a professional performer and close-up icon, he’s performed all over the world in some of the hardest conditions possible.
James can fool audiences, while completely surrounded, with the simplest tricks… because he understands misdirection on an elite level.
We sat down with him for a 30-minute interview and kept the cameras rolling. 3 hours later and James' head was empty, he’d given every single last bit of knowledge he had on misdirection. Nothing left out.
Along the way, we charmed him into giving away 3 reputation-making effects.
- 1. James’ definitive 3-phase card under box routine
- 2. Card under glass - done right.
- 3. The infamous, SIGNED CARD MONTE… where you can switch a card in someone’s hand and have them swear blind that they’ve been holding it - THE ENTIRE TIME.
Like a good book, 'The Misdirection Sessions' are broken down into bite-sized, enjoyable chapters. You can shotgun it all in one sitting, or keep coming back to this proverbial page-turner.
This isn’t one of those ‘look over there’ kinda projects. Instead, this is jam-packed with theory and practical demonstrations of elite misdirection to suit any character and performing style.
With this project, you’re not just learning how, you’re learning why at the same time.
If we took a poll and asked magicians which part of their magic you’ve all been neglecting, the answer would be this - misdirection.

To start, I am not a professional magician but this session was worth the purchase imo. Without going into topics he spoke about in depth I will simply say main his emphasis was to steer the ship back in the right direction concerning misdirection. In the third phase he did go through an advance routine (certainly advanced for me) that was very well done imo. I agree with most other reviewers that have already posted here that this is worth your time.
James knows his stuff! He is obviously a deep thinker on the subject and it shows. His ideas are not just theoretical—he has honed his ideas in the public arena and fortunately he shares that with us. One of the best magic videos I have ever purchased! Highly recommended
In the 3 sessions James provides valuable information and useful insights. But do not expect one trick after another. The effects taught serve more as an example or to prove a point. The moves used are not taught in detail and I had a feeling that the viewer is expected to know some of them already.
The insights and tips provided can be very useful but do not expect learning a specific trick from this download. More likely outcome is that it will improve all the other tricks you perform already.
I trusted Misdirection session because I already knew James Brown as an artist. Needles to say, I was amazed by the power of the Misdirection, not only did I improve colse-up routine, but the concepts explained can also be applied to stage musical act as in my case. Probably the best purchase on ellusionist
I like the conversational format. The three sessions absolutely function best together as a whole. This is very important information for beginners as well as experienced performers. However they take for granted that you know basic terminology and moves. So probably best to have a little knowledge from before. My suggestion would be to take notes as you watch because of the flowing open nature of the format. It would be difficult to find the one thing you are looking to view again. So take notes! And listen to this information. He really pin points a lot of the flaws we have, and suggests better ways to look at things, and better ways to practice magic.
Great for beginners and experts. I'll have to go back and rewatch my favorite magicians again with new eyes.
This video series was worth every penny. You forget what you can get away with if you have good misdirection techniques.
throughout the years I've seen people make an emphasize on the idea of the big movement covers the smaller one, it's not that simple and this course is here to tell you that and also tell you that our perception of reality is fragile, I've never seen someone go into this level of philosophy when it comes to misdirection, I can't recommend this enough.
So much really good information, not just what to do but why you should do it. A lot of important points made with practical examples to reinforce the thinking. Excellent stuff
