Fast Company Review
By Michael Vincent


2 Disc DVD Collection:
$80.00 Plus $8.00 Shipping/Handling Worldwide
Web: http://www.fastcompanydvd.com

Fast Company is a Two Disc DVD Collection of Art Ruse and Subterfuge at the Card Table. The material is superbly presented and executed by Los Angels Card Expert Damian Nieman.

On Disc 1 the contents covers everything you need to know about handling cards in an expert manner from the basic “Shuffles”, “Card Control”, “Slug Controls”, “False Cuts and False Shuffles” featuring a very deceptive touch to enhance “The Zarrow Shuffle”. Damian features his personal and favourite approaches to the “Classic Pass|” as applied to the card table along with detailed work on various “False Deals”. Card Table artifice would be incomplete with some attention paid to “Palming Cards”, this special branch of card handling is given expert attention.

Disc 2 features some interesting thoughts on Cutting the Aces including “Scarne’s Legendary Ace Cutting” routine, “Marlo’s Estimation Aces” and the famous “Steven’s Control” which inspired a very young Dai Vernon back in the 1920s. Also featured are interesting interpretations and handlings on The MacDonald’s Aces, Triumph and The Three Card Monte. Damian concludes with a masterful performance of The Invisible Palm Aces with full explanation.

The bonus section feature out-takes from The Movie “Shade”, in which Damian was chief writer and director. The camera work on this Disc is simply superb and catches the action with fine detail and accuracy.

This DVD collection is an excellent resource because it is very inspiring to watch cards handled in a precise and expert manner. This DVD is not for the beginner, but I would encourage all aspiring card men and women to watch this DVD just so that they get a barometer for excellence and what is possibly with dedication and practise.

Damian Neiman is an expert card handler and his presentation of the material assumes a certain level of prior knowledge but that shouldn’t stop you from gaining something of value from these discs.

I highly recommend this collection.
