Does anyone have this DVD? Is the routine good? Are the angles restrictive? Is it hard to perform? Please give a review. Thank you very much. Smile

It's a love it or hate it kind of thing. Personally, I love it and often do some of the individual phases when I'm called on to do impromptu. The entire routine itself is very strong and gets great reactions. Angles are important, but if you follow Meir's advice you'll be able to do it without worrying about them too much. You don't need to be super-flexible to do it. There's a demo on penguinmagic.
Thought: Why does man kill? He kills for food. And not only food: frequently there must be a beverage.

It is NO GOOD as it sounds....

You could guess where the fingers go by looking at the cover of the tape. It is very CLEAR how the magic's done... if you clever enough... Smile

The angles by the way are extremely restrictive, so much that when he did it on the tonight show, he had to set up special bleachers and a stage. I say move on, this one is one I should have passed on.

But this again is my opinion.

I've seen Meir Yedid's entire routine. So what if it's obvious how it's done:it's funny. Angles-yes probably restrictive. I don't have flexible fingers but it's worth a try.

Its a great routine. My fingers are large and I got the video and them ended up donating it to my IBM ring. Fingers are too large to do it well. Looks great if you can do it.

HN Review 29: Finger Fantasies - Meir Yedid

AD:

The act that won two Society Of American Magicians Close-Up Magic Competitions and their coveted Originality Award.

This is the first video devoted to finger magic. It contains Meir Yedid's award-winning Finger Fantasies act.
The most incredible, impromptu routine ever seen. Your pinkie, ring finger, middle finger and your index finger all vanish and reappear at will!
Make your pinkie telescope into your palm, your thumb travels up and down your arm, take a knife and cut off one of your fingers, and more.

As seen on Comedy Tonight (FOX-TV), The Paul Daniels Show (BBC-TV), Naruhodo The World (Fuji-TV), Luna De Verano (CS-TV), Saturday Night Live (NBC-TV), and even used on Broadway and in the Ringling Brothers &
Barnum & Bailey Circus.

You will learn how to make your fingers vanish and everything you need to know about
performing this unique act.

REVIEW:

Coming from Meir Yedid, this video is not so bad. Mr. Yedid's fingers are longer than... my arms, so don't expect to do everything taught on the video. And since the angles are obviously an issue on close-up settings, I settled for the vanishing pinkie, the telescopic pinkie and the classic traveling thumb only. It gets a laugh for kids.

Overall rating: acceptable
