A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...
It is a period of magic war.
Mentalists, striking from a hidden
base, have won their first victory
against the evil Card Sharks.
During the battle, Mentalist spies managed
to steal secret plans to the Card Sharks'
ultimate weapon, the Double Undercut, a
manipulation powerful enough to change the
entire ambitious card routine.
Pursued by the Card Sharks' sinister agents,
Prince B.E. races home aboard his
starship, custodian of the stolen plans
that can save her people and restore
freedom to the galaxy....

All attending members were participating with great passion to study the art and were all eager to advance beyond the stereotypical image of Turkish magician/mystery performer. By their enthusiasm and determination make a difference in Turkey, it was my honour to be invited as the first lecturer to Turkey and Magic Fraternity, not to mention, a part of the great experience comes from the effort they invest on treating their guest like a king. From the moment I stepped out of the airport, I felt Istanbul was my second home! (for real).
It was a pleasure to share my magic and experience with people who truly care about the art and to participating in something that I believe will grow to be very influential in the near future.
From the great experience that I have had, I highly, highly recommend dear friends and respectful peers to give them a friendly hand while enjoying your visit in Turkey. I am sure you'll love it!" -Tsai Will

Berk Eratay has been interested in magic since 2000 and he is into mentalism after year 2003. Unlike the people of his age, he mostly made his work abroad. Reason of his works abroad is his ability to talk both English and Japan as good as Turkish. When Berk was 22, he took the first place in a competition which has an international equivalence named “Sinan Çetin ile Fenomen” and aired on Star TV. After that, Berk attended various seminars taking places in England, Scandinavian Nations, Japan, China, Germany, Israel, and Vegas and performed in these places.
Berk’s mentalism and magic concept is about controlling people’s emotions and frighten them. Because of his concept, he has earned his fame amongst many magicians.
Since 2008, Berk has involved in many works and projects with many famous people abroad in mentalism. In 2009, he attended World Championship and took 4th place in his area, mentalism.
As Berk thought that he would be more successful in an enviroment that he created, he founded Magic Fraternity with his ideology on magic, on August 2010 to create a magic environment in which Berk and his friends could work comfortably in Turkey.
Currently, Berk is creating projects abroad with people like, Will Tsai, Guy Bavli, Alvo Stockman and Peter Nardi and consulting Aref Ghafouri.

Serdar Bayram learned his first illusion trick which was a rope cutting trick from his father. For long times, he searched about illusion to find his way. When he was in university, he found Necla Sungur’s phone number. After that, Serdar travelled back and forth from Istanbul to Izmir and learned many tricks from Necla Hanım. Serdar tried to meet with every illusionist whom he heard the name. During a performance, as Selim Başarır was talking, Serdar Bayram asked him where he could find him. That caused Serdar Bayram to get into magic more seriously. In 2002, Serdar was involved in ‘Sihirli Salı’ team which was led mostly by Erdinç Demiray and Selim Başarır. After ‘Sihirli Salı’, Serdar realized that magic in Turkey was exhausted and he continued his interest towards magic theoretically as a researcher. He started developing his own tricks.
After Magic Fraternity was established, Serdar Bayram’s works in magic gained momentum. Currently, he prefers to be in the backstage of magic as designer and mentor. He is skilled for this kind of work and every young illusionist can improve himself near him. Serdar doesn’t have money ambition but wants Turkish illusion to improve and our name to be heard on worldwide scale. Currently, he is getting ready to introduce a trick, that he designed, to world. His work on designing and producing new material is continuing.
