Hello!
Yes, I do!
I've McBride's DVDs, but if you can't get enough, go and buy it! It's worth the money!
You learn exact his routine (can be find on youtube)!

For me the "diminishing cards" and the "perpetual fans" were the reason I bought it for!

Also appearing cane and vanishing cane are explained!

It's absolutely great. It helps you to learn some great moves and a great routine. It also helps as it gives you an idea of what a good routine looks like so can make a nice routine for yourself.

This is one of the better teaching videos on card manipulation available. Frankly, if you only had one card manipulation teaching video this would be the one to get.

There are a number of reasons. First, you get good solid instruction on the basic elements/slights needed in developing a routine. Second, you get to see a well thought out routine that has a clear beginning, middle, and end that brings the routine full circle. Third, the elements are magical happenings , very visual, and easy for an audience to follow. Finally, the length is just right.

It is unlike many/most card manipulation acts being performed. They seem to be just so much hand washing, juggling, and showing off with little or no thought to presentation or audience appeal. If you learned this routine by rote and didnít have the time to build one of your own, you would still have a routine that will stand you in good stead for your performing career. In all it is a good model to follow.

As a beginning card manipulator, would it be more beneficial to get this video first, or the Jeff McBride Art of Card Manipulation videos?

Either way, someday I'll probably get them all, just wondering which would be best to get first. I heard the McBride videos are very good. I have manipulation without tears, so I have a very very basic knowledge of manipulation.


Thanks for your help,
The Great Danton

That is a nice routine, no body loads either, whoo hoo! I have all 3 of McBrides AoCM videos and he doesn't teach the perpetual card fans. Not to hard to figure out tho if you watch Tony's or Lances video if you are familiar at all with CM but it would have been nice to include it.

Jeff McBride teaches the "Perpetual Card Fans" on Volume 2 of "The Art of Card Manipulation". It is called "Challenge Card Fan Production".

...yes but its another way to do it!Tonys perpertual fans are more magical and not so obvious like McBrides!!

T. G. Danton, paraphrase what I said above. If you were to get only one teaching video it would be this one. For the absolute beginner this is a fine start point. It will give you everything you need. You won't need another for some years if ever (you'll get, study, and "want" other videos, but you won't "need" them).

Yes, I agree. Different technique entirley.

Harry,is right. After watching Tony's perfomance video this would be all most card manipulators need. I will never use a lot of the stuff on the McBride videos.

Thanks guys!

I will probably pick this one up first..then later if I think I need to, I will get the McBride videos.

I got McBrides Dvds first, after watching, I didn't get enough, so I bought many others like
-Romaine "Monarch of manipulations"
-Stephane Vanel "Manipulations"
-Tony Clarks "Winning award card routine"
-McBrides "Without tears"
-Jeff Sheridan "Genius at work"
-Eddy Ray "Slight of hand with cards"

all of that are great, you can perform many many routines only with the McBrides one or Tonys Dvd, you`ll learn much more as the basics, but if you cant get enough like me, than buy all you can find about manipulations, on every dvd theres something not mentioned on others!!
nice greets chris

Jeff McBrides "Manipulation Without tears" is incredible. It gives the beginner the basics to go onto to advanced things, or just keep with the basics and have a wonderful act.

Here's a clip of what's on it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3Zl5hPFBVU

E-mail Jeff for order info:jeff@mcbridemagic.com

Where do you get the dvd or Stephane Vanel "Manipulations"?

This is not one I have.

IMHO, the Eddie Ray dvd has a lot of moves but the big problem with this dvd he has no suggestions of how to get into the move and out. Almost every move looks like an opener.
