First, you need the most convincing Blindfold in the world.
Second, you need to know the secrets of giving back the answers to the audience in a style that reveals more than just their questions.
Gil understood these two problems are the crux of performing a believable and entertaining Q & A Act. He spent countless hours in researching the best available blindfolds. None met his stringent standards. So he developed his own series of methods that when put together create the ultimate blindfold. When you see the Act you simply will believe Gil cannot see exactly like the many thousands of people before you who have been fooled.
How to correctly reveal the answers is probably the best kept secret in all of mentalism. Those who really know rarely talk. Gil's techniques are sure fire, honed over decades of performance. His work on this most important subject is easily worth the price of admission!
So what makes the Gil Eagles Blindfold revolutionary? For centuries performers have used every conceivable object to apparently block their vision. The one thing that the best methods had in common were layers of different materials.
In ancient India they poured salt into their eyes then wrapped cloth around their head to keep it in place. Kuda Bux was sensational by using dough then a gigantic amount of cloth. Both work but they suffer from two common problems. Vision is limited and they are really messy!
Gil tried and learned all of the methods. In the end he realized he had to create his own Blindfold. It is revolutionary because it meets the criteria of professionals. First, his Blindfold is totally practical. It is also100% believable that the performer can't see yet Gil's vision is EVERYWHERE! He can see the entire room!
This level of vision has never been perfected before. It opens up tons of possibilities that typical Blindfolds usually limit. Gil's Blindfold allows him to interact on a visual level with anyone in the room! He can see their faces, their reactions to his ANSWERS. This level of vision is unsurpassed and gives you the ability to see the real reactions to your answers!
This truly is an art form and we'll spend hours going over the questions from the show and giving real world examples of Gil's responses, why he said what he revealed and how you can learn to master this deep secret of mentalism.
This Act is totally analog, no digital devices or electronics are used. In today's world using electronics can be a strong tool but at a price…confidence! You are betting your career that you replaced your batteries and nothing will fail.
