Great Dvd Alakazam.

I can see what you mean by Pre-configuration being a stunner, and it is no wonder that a freind of the Great Mr Larry Jennings declared it to be one of the best tricks he had seen during Marks lecture, great work by Mark on Mr Jennings effect.

Pre-Configuration is worth the price of the Dvd alone, but you also get some other great effects. Check out "My grandfathers Book; and No Moves", also worth a mention is Marks great advice and psychology on the effect "BALANCE".

Thanks Calenig,

I have been using a few of Marks effects in my act for a while now and they always go down a storm! Chaos and order is an instant reset crowd pleaser!

I've just received this DVD from Alakazam based alone on Peter's demo of "Pre-preconfiguration." It really is a nice effect and probably well worth the price of the DVD (Although we hear that phrase too much these days.) Mark does give references regarding this effect but it is very similar to "Four Way Coincidence" by Johnny Murray (first published in CardCavalcade3) but more recently in Jerry Mentzer's "Cunnning Card Miracles" (USA 1999)

BUT - lets not forget the rest of the DVD! There's some pretty cool stuff on there. None more so than "Chaos and Order" - not impromptu, but a timely deck switch (oh-no, not another one! Smile ) will make it well worth while to produce a minor miracle.

There's a couple of nice gaffed effects in there too. One of those, "Balance" is a wonderful deck-of-cards levitation that, once performed, leaves you 'clean' to carry on with a regular deck of cards.

A very good DVD - well worth the price! Further underlying the trend that Alakazam can generally be relied on to produce darn good stuff.

Cripes! I've just rewalised I've made the same mistake - The trick that prompted this is "Pre-prefiguration" - not Pre-preCONfiguration.

I also forgot to mention that whilst it is very, very similar to the trick outlined above, the handling and presentation here is so much better.

This is a great little card magic DVD. Mark is a genius in terms of his routining.

Real world card magic that I guarantee will get used. PRE-PRECONFIGURATION is one trick you'll perform for yourself, it's that satisfying.

His opening gag about being an olympic athlete in the past(he must be 20 stone) cracks me up every time.

He's the sort of bloke I'd like to go for a beer with, although I suspect he'd drink me under the table before eating 3+ kebabs.

Hey guys.

I watched this dvd and I have to say its the real deal!. I'm not into fluff and powder and stuff on dvds but this is all prime cuts. I'm a big fan of card magic and this is some really fresh thinking with some power house routines.

My fave routines were the trick known as pre-configurtion which I can really see myself doing as it totally fits my character. The other two thumbs up goes to balance which I made up this avo and it will be my knew table hand opener for crimbo. I LOVE "Chaos and Order" its a trick that I'm not sure much else can follow it.

Top bloke who is a joy to learn from, really relaxed style and funny too. I look forward to further output from mark elsden. Those folks looking for a magic stocking filler would enjoy this.

The DVD sounds great! I only hope that it will become available through US distributors and dealers in the near future. Since it can be purchased in NTSC format, my thinking is that it will. The price should be significantly less than having to pay in British pounds in addition to expensive international shipping.
