Hello,

Which DVD teaches just the most basic single card throwing from a deck (holding a deck in your hand, you throw one card after the other in a spinning straight way to a hall audience). Is this on the Zoom etc. of McBride? Where else could it be found?

Thanks

Hello Simcha,
There is a DVD , "The art of Card Throwing", of Rick Smith Jr. , that teacths you a lot of ways to throw a card. This teachs exactly you want. Mc Bride´s DVD teachs you some basic ways to throw too and his famous card to floor throw.
I hope help you.
Best regards:

Dany

I love McBride but I dunno why he claims his "world famous floor bounce"... literally all he does is throw a card at the floor. Rick Smith did it on steve harvey's show ages ago and it's not like an invention of any kind. that's like me inventing the 'wall bounce' and then the 'spectator bounce' LOL. great DVD though, that zoom bounce and fly, plus it comes with a thumbtip shooter.

I would suggest buying Rick Smith Jr.'s DVD called "The Art of Card Throwing". Be warned, however, that he equates card throwing to baseball, and has no intention of treating card throwing as the "art" it deserves credit for. Nonetheless, it's a decently made DVD.

In addition, I would suggest Ricky Jay's book called "Cards As Weapons", which is half satire, half incredibly useful.

Cheers,

Nicholas Lewis

Jeff has added many nuances to the effect. Not to mention making it one of hi trademarks. Have you tried it? It is, by far, not all that simple.
