Magicians who specialize in close-up magic are constantly in search of material that doesnt use playing cards. Easily seventy-five percent of the magic thats been published over the last 50 or 60 years has been card magic of one kind or another so quality non-card material is a relatively scarce commodity in the literature.
On this DVD youll meet eight different performers presenting and teaching powerful close-up routines that will wow any audience - and theres not a playing card in sight Eugene Burger and David Parr begin this volume with a stunning update of U. F. Grants classic bill transposition. Banachek is next with a sensational book test while J. J. Sanvert combines two effects to create a wonderful interlude with a spectators borrowed bill. Gregory Wilson follows with a mind-boggling bill switch routine that takes the audience on a figurative trip around the world while Paul Wilson performs and teaches a streamlined version of John Ramsays classic Cylinder and Coins. Finally Daryl demonstrates a totally impromptu one-cup routine that can be performed any time and any place.
Its been said that even the worlds largest and most spectacular stage illusion cannot create the impact - that feeling of pure astonishment - of a good well-performed piece of close-up magic and on this DVD youll find eight compelling pieces of evidence to that effect.
