I want to second the mention of Al Goshman's Video. He was a great performer and his misdirection was superb. Even when you knew his magic, he would occasionally fool you with a load. He had to be one of the best all time close-up magicians.

To be clear, I was talking about John Lovick's book called "Switch: Unfolding the $100 Bill Change". The reason I wanted to include it was that the book is a treasure of methods, effects and principles directly related to the bill switch.

Again, I have to ask, what principles are covered in Reel Quarterly and David Regal's PPP series? There are plenty of good resources out there, but I want to focus on those that act like textbooks on specific principles.


David's DVD's, through effects he's created, show ways of looking how performances can increase the impact of the magic we perform.

Or...you can wait for my DVD set. They will be filmed with a "monkey cam". This is a camera attached to a chimpanzee so that you can view the magic I perform through the "eyes" of a primate. As chimps are known to be "manipulative and capable of deception", I beleive it will be ground breaking DVD set and well reveived by the community.

Is that how YOU buy DVD's? You should be able to get good endorsements for your project from the Café.

Larry Davidson's "Scripted Insanity" DVD's are must have DVD's for guys that want to up their performance game. No more fumbling for words or getting tongue tied.

Mad Hatter has a great price on them:

Eugene Burger's work is always a worthwhile study. Especially his latest "Exploring Magical Presentations".

I second the recommendation for Eugene's work.

Also, Jamy Ian Swiss's "Live in London" Lecture DVD is an invaluable resource for studying the principles behind magical performance.
