I poped in the new Slydini DVD and was blown away by the first 5 minutes.
I have never seen Slydini's coins thru the table routine all the way thru.

Now this is really good coin magic in my opinion.

I have the Slydini book but this really puts the work on display.

The one coin routine by Slydini and Cellini were supurb. I had to rewind a few times to have a hint at what was going on. My eyes keep seeing the coin *blink* out of existance right on the table, a la a great retention vanish. And it wasn't even there.

I have never seen this before. Splendid. And I'm only 5 minutes into the darn thing.

I'll be enjoying this 2 DVD set perhaps with some fine scotch over the next couple of evenings.

I cannot wait to receive mine. I saw Cellini perform the "Coins Thru Table" routine live about two years ago. It was beautiful! Can't figure out how Frank got his before I got mine. Maybe mine will arrive tomorrow.

My dad likes Glen Morangie. Heck, he likes many of the "glen" variety, Fiddich, Levitt, etc. Personally, I can't see how anyone drinks that stuff...

Those DVD can be enjoyed over and over again. Keep experimenting with what you want to enjoy with them!

Heck the DVD will make what you enjoy them with that much better anyhow.

This is a dumb question, but is most of the DVD Slydini performing or others doing his material?

thanks,

Greetings and Salutations Frank,

I still have good memories of sitting around a dining room table with Slydini at the head and first seeing him do coins thru the table and the one coin routine. I haven't see the new DVD, but this was the nature of Slydini's magic -- it really looked like the real thing.

I watched the entire disc one. I found some congac in the cupboard. No idea where it came from. There was a lot of work ...

..actually, forget it. I am going to cut it short (as short as I can) and just say that this DVD is already among my absolute favorites.

The work by the Slydini students was not only interesting, I think it was a good idea. Getting to see the same routine done by Slydini and then Cellini, or someone else with the explaination by Cellini is brilliant. It's like getting to see two different perspectives on something.

The cigarette work was awesome and I don't smoke. Never did. But it's adaptable to other items.
The T&R Napkins was phenominal and something I plan on doing.
The sponge ball work was awesome and very magical.
The coins. Way better than I could have thought. The one coin routine is too good.
If you think you know what it is but you have not seen it, you're in for a complete shock.

Also, this DVD will teach you how to use body language better than anything else I've seen. For those that don't already know about how important this is, you will be blown away while you are enlightened by Slydini's methods.

The interviews are touching and relevant.

... or you can just go buy a few more tricks from genpuin.com and stuff 'em in a drawer after a couple weeks.


Top notch material.
One of the most magical and delightful DVDs I've ever watched.
I'll be putting this on my website on sale for the holidays.

I've been doing Interlude with a Paper Knapking forever. It's one of my favorite Slydini tricks. It's my "go to" trick for after diner and never fails to get the incredulity response. An excellent effect that looks like pure magic.

There is another outstanding source for Slydini's method. It teaches not just about body movement and langauge, but also the equally important concept about timing. Timing--more than anything else (I think)--makes Slydini's magic so magical. The resourse I am talking about is The Best of Slydini ... And More, by Karl Fulves. This book was published in the mid-1970s and comes in two parts (text & photos -- it was before VHS) and is still in print (try Tannen's). The coin routines, cigarettes, paper knapkins and a bunch of other great close-up material can be found therein.

Forgt to mention the Slydini pins. Wow. I put the DVD on 1/16 speed to see how it was done. I have no idea. Trick Photography, I guess.

I am still waiting for mine to arrive. After reading Frank's review, I am going to hunt down my mail man. This looks like it may be my best purchase of the year.

Watching Slydini is like nothing else. Slow, smooth and everything seems to be totally above board.
I am glad these routines are finally preserved for all to see now.

Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Macallan, Glenmorangie are all excellent. Also, Abelour and Bowmore. Four of the six in my cabinet right now. What a great idea.

For serious dollars the Glenmorangie 18 is very, very good.

Here's alittle help:

...more suggestions: Edradour, Mortlach (if you like The Macallan, you'll love this) and my own personal favourite Highland Park.
