Hi Everyone,

I am posting this here because really anyone who would care about this news would be those that frequent the "Show Me the Money" forum (definitely not "Pick a Card Any Card" forum!)

I know many of you on this forum asked me to keep you informed when my DVD was coming out. I just got word from Bob Kohler Productions (you can see his banner ad for it further down on the main page) that it will be September 5, 2005.

It is called Coin Man Walking. It is all coin magic, all strolling/walk-around material with no tables required.

I am not going to type out an advertisement here, so if you want to find out more, head to my web site.

Thanks for your interest.

Dan

Those that already have his Coinvanish 2 book, need no further encouragement.

Sounds really good Dan. I'm sure it will do well. Smile

Good to see you've included two of my favorites from your repertoire, Lightning C/S and the very cute Double-Take Transpo. They are great little quickies that really get big responses, especially Double-Take as it happens in the spec's hands...easy to do and truly a wonderful little C/S routine. Seems like there will be a lot on this DVD - Good shoot!

Thanks Marion. I perform “Double Take Transposition, Flash Hop, and Lightning Copper Silver” as a complete Copper/Silver set in the performance (I segue immediately from one routine to the other).

You are obviously familiar with “Double Take” and “Lightning C/S.” “Flash Hop” is similar to “Barley Hop” from Coinvanish Volume 2, however I wanted to have a more practical final load than the little beer mug. The mug was too context sensitive. The bill production works for a greater range of venues. I teach how to make the bill fold step by step on the DVD as well.

The other routine on the DVD I would consider a "quickie" is "Breaking A Dollar". This is unpublished, quick, and does not use any gaffs. This is a very simple routine, but it looks great.

The other routines are a little longer and more structured. I obviously like all the routines (go figure) Smile

I love his books and already pre-ordered his DVD. I'm just curious as to when when they will ship. And DAN thanks again for recommending Schoolcraft. I love my new and first coins.

Bob Kohler told me yesterday that the DVDs were done and mine were being shipped to me DHL. Considering that Monday the 5th is a holiday, I am expecting my batch will arrive Tuesday.

I plan on shipping all my orders Tuesday if I get them early enough or if they arrive late, on Wednesday.

I'll be emailing everyone that ordered one when your order ships. Thanks again for everyone who pre-ordered a copy.

Hey Dan, if you don't mind, could you explain the process in creating a dvd? I know Kohler would be the producer and you the talent, but how is it divied-up. Are there contracts and lawyers involved, royalties, etc. Just trying to understand better. Thanks. Smile

Marion,

I am not sure what every arrangement is, but in my case it was pretty simple:

Kohler asked if I wanted to come to Vegas to shoot a DVD. He told me the terms and compensation, etc. I agreed, flew to Vegas and he shot the the material.

Bob pretty much does everything from there. Editing, paying for duplication, cover design, etc. He owns the copyright on the DVD.

Essentially, I perform my material in front of a camera, he does everything else necessary to bring it to market including all the financial investment.

As to the actual contract, I am sure it varies from producer to producer. How much you get paid per DVD, etc.

Thanks Dan...sounds pretty straight forward. Hey, it sounds like Bob is actually doing the shooting himself? Or is it a thing with a director, or a camera man that is used to shooting magical subjects? Interesting. Smile

There are three cameras in his studio. He operates one camera and he had two other camera operators to film my performances. Bob is a pro, very knowledgable in what he does. Filming is just part of it. There is also lighting, sound, editing, etc, it all takes knowledge to do right. He can do it all. It is also good to have someone of his caliber to produce the DVD because he has an excellent eye for good magic. He is also one of the most talented magcians I know.

There is no director. The cameras roll and I start performing or teaching.

Sounds like a winner Dan. Smile I see so many dvds out there now as a lot of folks are able to do their own simple enough, some good, some not as good but all have value as I've never seen one that you couldn't learn at least something from. It's all good and the more the merrier. Smile Thanks for your comments and best of luck with this new offering. Smile

Greetings,
Dan has been a good friend of mine for the last few years. He's one of the best of the new breed of coinworker on the planet.

It was a blast working with Dan on "Coin Man Walking." He's really done his research. He's read virtually everything ever written on coins. He knows the history better than I do. But this knowledge also gave Dan an incredible foundation to build his new routines and to polish them to a very high standard.

His routines have been thought out using the best moves for each application and they have been choreographed so that there is no wasted motion. Every move has a reason.

There's something here for all levels of coin workers. The material is aimed at situations where you don't have a table to work on. But both beginners and experts will find a wealth of information. Even if you don't use any of the routines on the DVD, Dan's finesse will bring your coin work to a higher leve. But you will use Dan's routines. The material is very direct and absolutely usable. You will get fooled when you watch the performances just like your audiences'. Remember a fooled audience is a good audience.

Dan's detailed explanations leave nothing to the imagination. Nothing is left out..except the explanation for Dan's version of the Ramsay classic "Cylinder & Coins." It's performance only, but you'll love trying to figure this one out. I've shown it to some very informed magicians, no one has figured it out yet!

All of the other routines are explained in full with a level of instruction that rivals personal lessons. They are crystal clear. If you don't understand this DVD you may want to consider getting out of magic.

While all of the routines are excellant, two really stand out to me.
"OutsDanding/Fingertip Coins To Pocket" are two routines that flow naturally together to create a full circle routine. Dan combines the work of Troy Hooser and Cris Korn in a diabolical way that creates one of the most visual coin routines you'll ever perform. Dan's handling makes it very easy to do.

My other favorite is "Four Coins, Your Hands." No doubt this will be an instant classic. It's so easy to do my mother could do it. BUT the spectator reaction to this incredible, visual routine is over the top. It's the first coins across routine that happens in both of the spectators hands. Once you see it, you'll have to do it. I worked it up a few months ago and since then I keep it in my pocket all of the time. It's hard to believe something this powerful is this easy to do.
I worked for years on the tough coin moves, this makes me feel like I wasted my time. It's perfect for both stand up, walk a round or table hopping.

All of the inner circle coin men have known about Dan's expertise but with the release of "Coin Man Walking" the rest of the magic community will soon know why
Dan Watkins is considered to be one of the very best coin workers in the world today.

Whew Bob... that was one heck of a compliment, I think too much to live up to!

I am not quite as well read on the coin material as you may think! I try to be as knowledable as possible, but I haven't read everything there is on coins... I have just try to do my homework on the routines I perform. I really leaned on Wesley James for his wealth of crediting information for my books which a chunk of my DVD material comes from. Curtis Kam has also helped on history.

I hope everyone likes that material as much as you did!
