Does anyone have this video? I have seen on his web site that he is bringing this material out on 2 DVDs soon and am considering pre-ordering both.

Any any opinions appreciated!

Thanks Academy - I had searched before but obviously hadn't done it well enough.

Cheers! :jump:

Great video. Goes into detail on the construction of most of Martin's fabulous (and expensive) tricks. Cardiographic is worth the price of admission but all the material is great. As for two dvd's, I can't see how the material on the tape could even come close to filling two dvd's. Unless he has added new material, stick with the tape.

Yeah, I've seen him do some of the stuff from volume two including the T&R tissue paper and halve it. Both very entertaining. Also, when I saw him, he closed with a card in bottle routine. Not sure if this is the same one or not, but if so, it killed a room full of magicians. Problem, you will probably need to know Bob Villa or be handy with tools yourself to make it however.

It looks to me like Volume 1 of the DVD is basically same as the VHS vid and Volume 2 is new (at least different).

Gosh, now I'm mad. Spent so long to get my making magic PAL video (VHS player in AUSTRALIA wont play NTSC), so I bought it for 45 dollars, inc delivery, but, suprise suprise, comes out on DVD a week after I buy it. Why does that always happen. Why does the bread always land the wrong way down?

I'd love to build his Snacks Alive effect, but the bottle (Neilson) is around $50. Is there a "generic" bottle that can be substituted at a lower cost yet still look authentic?
:cool:

Joseph;
not sure the exact application your looking for because I haven't seen Snack Alive, but, if your looking for a vanishing bottle, you can make one out of the pint size mike bottles. The one's made of white plastic with the plastic sleeve over it. If interested PM me for details.
