Sorry if this has already been covered, but is the secret to Ultra Board revealed on Vol. 5, or just demonstrated? The description says:
Quote:
For the first time on video, see Richard Osterlind perform his classic Mental Epic type effect with an ungimmicked board!


If I'm not mistaken, Ultra Board was demonstrated but not revealed in "Challenge Magic," and I wondered if this was the case in MMToo.

He tips the whole skinny, my friend! Unbelievably clever.

I certainly agree that having full access of the methods whets your appetite for the finished product...and having the full secrets explained allows you to know what you wouldn't perform as well as what you would perform (and buy). You can direct your spending to the proper product.

There is much you can make yourself on the DVD's...and while most people certainly would buy The Solid Ghost,The Steel blindfold, Ultraboard, etc rather than spend X amount more in wasted material, labor, etc, I thought it admirable that he not only discussed the methods, but gave full pointers and advice just as if you had bought the product and he were advising you. So, if you want to go out in the old workshop and hack out a Stainless Steel Blindfold, Richard gives you all the info, all the little details. Me, I'd pop it on my Paypal and pop a beer and life would be a lot simpler...but you could construct them if you wanted to, the info is there. Amazing.

Again, he seems to render obsolete stuff that has gone before. The bends are within the capabilities of anyone, and are amazing... Power to the people!

I have only watched vol. 5 of the new set, but I can tell you that Richard saved me $150. Ultra
I think that the Ultraboard is a wonderful device. At other times in my life, I would have used it. But, I don't think that I will use it right now.
By Richard's generosity in explaining it's workings, I will save that money and will very probably use it to purchase other "Osterlindys."
Thanks Richard.
Peace,
Parson

I'm going to be very broke pretty soon. So much good stuff, and I must have Osterlind's Mind Mysteries Too just to complete my collection. I can't wait till I get my hands on these babies!

Test conditions II just floored me. What an amazing effect. This one I will certaining use myself. A perfect answer to performing mentalism to any wanna be magicain or performing ones that is. even when you know the method, it will still amaze you to watch it. I love richards comment that he uses a lot, 'there's the move right there'. you tend to blink at that point and then pause and and rewind. then laugh to yourself for such genius.
Also I really appeciate the openness of richard showing the workings of the props he uses, like already mentioned, basicly showing you how to make your own. This gives me to the chance to pratice with a home made item , until I am ready to perform for audiences, at that stage I can buy the professional unit.

regards steve
I do look forward to the day when you post something constructive.

Richard/Jim,

Any chance of publishing a separate book with detailed plans for making some of the effects that you use in performance? I agree that in many cases it would be easier to buy the product, but I was interested, for example, in plans for making a Thought Scan board. I'm certain the craftsmanship and quality are excellent, but I also enjoy creating gimmicks, props, and devices myself.

Richard,

Im sure I'm not alone when I say this but, any chance you will ever come out with one of your corporation real world performances on DVD? I would love to see you performing in front of a big venue. I ensure you I would be one of the first to purchase this DVD no matter the quality!

Richard Osterlind's Mind Mysteries Too has a total running time of 6.5 hours!

Richard has over-delivered with this set.

Thanks again for the great comments. I can't tell you how much I do appreciate them.

Let me take the time to answer a few questions. I don't know if we will offer building plans for some of the effects like ThoughtScan. I think I gave enough info on Vol. 1 for making it and you can tell from the paper inside the approximate dimensions. The same for the Ultra Board. But,who knows? If I ever do that "big book" maybe we can do that in there.

As to offering a corporate show performance, that is a problem. There are very few companies who would agree to having one of their shows videoed and offered for sale. These are all very private affairs and they don't want footage being spread around. We even have trouble getting shots for a demo video for my own promotion.

Yes, there is a lot of material on these 3 DVD's. I really thought they would be 4, but we were able to get it all onto 3.

As to my old friend Jim Spinnato's question, "You are a troublemaker!!!!" (Just kidding, Jim. Smile)

Richard,

Thanks again for taking the time to answer. I think it's so great that performers at the top of their game like you and Banachek take time to answer our questions.

paisa23,

yes, we sell our CT pads on our website at http://www.osterlindmysteries.com/ I just got around to reading your private PM to me. (Sorry I was traveling and missed it.) Maybe we can take care of the other product you mentioned at the same time.

Why is everyone being so nice to Richard Osterlind?
Am I the only one who is dissapointed in this set of DVD's?
I ordered mine and although I was not going to have time to look at it for two weeks, it showed up in about three days.
I thought that I would be able to learn this mentalism thing in about an hour. But NO!
Already, I have had to watch over 6 hours and I'm still not very good at this stuff.
BTW, How many days does it take to become a perfessonel mindreader?
Peace,
Parson

I am from Austria (Europe) and I ordered mine at http://www.osterlindmysteries.com/. All together lasts about two weeks until I got it. And I can say, this type of paper is much better than every other I tried before.
Perfect for the PCT.
