Another vote for Card stunts. Greg Wilson takes our skill to another world.
Phoenix Aces being my favourite effect.

All of the Greg Wilson's and Sankey's tapes/dvd's. I love watching them perform and their effects are killer.

Ammar's ETMCM

David Regal's dvd set

Doc Eason's Bar Magic series...

I Like Jay Sankey's Secret files DVDs. Packed with some explosive tricks.

Thanks for all the input guys. I also will have to agree with a bunch of people and say "The Very Best Of Jay Sankey" and of course "On The Loose" with Bill Malone. Both performances will cheer me up after a rough day.

Guy Hollingworth's Routines video is at the top of my list. It's full of beautiful, clever, and practical magic. It's also fun to watch. Definitely one of the best...

I can't believe no one mentioned "The Commercial Classics of Johnny Thompson" series. I believe they are being re-released as DVD's currently. Here is a goldmine of practical and classical material with insight from past masters of our art as relayed by the current "General Practitioner" of magic, himself. The others in my collection with which I will never part are: Billy McComb's on Steven's Greater Magic Library, Gene Anderson (GML), Don Alan Magic Ranch, (and GML), and Ross Bertram's home movies. I also enjoy Denny Haney's act which was previously mentioned on this thread, and Roberto Giobbi's Lecture. Mike Ammar's E-T-M series on cards, and money are all excellent as well. I better stop while I still can.

Hi,

I second Daryl's Encyclopedia of Card Sleights. I refer back to it all the time.

For favorites I'd have to go with Johnny Thompsons Classics of magic volumes 1-4,
and Doc Eason's Bar Magic volume 1-3.
I also really like a lot of the stuff coming out of Canada - Richard Sanders, Jay Sankey, and David Acer.

Worst - The Harry Alan 2 pack - strictly a dealer demo.

To each their own.

I'd have to agree with ANY Sankey material.
I'm also loving these new Carl Andrews videos I've just picked up. David Acer's Extreme Close-Up has just that, extreme stuff you can do with a litlle practice. Very funny and informative.

The Bill Malone DVDs have to be the best thing I have ever spent my money on. Smile

Although there are many videos/DVDs I like, I'd have to agree with "The Commercial Classics of Johnny Thompson" series.
I'm not sure other video/DVDs can last for more a decade but, I'm sure these materials can do.

Smile Well my list is as follows.

1. Ammar's "Easy To Master Card Miracles" - This is the video set that really lifted my level of card magic. I really like volume one the best out of the six I must say. Plus the $10.00 props included in each video was a great deal. They were also easy to learn from.

2. Malone's "On The Loose" - What a hilarious entertaining performer. His comedy is one of a kind, and his technical technique is superb, and the tricks aren't overly difficult either. He also gives awesome REAL WORLD advice as well.

3. David Regal's videos are a pleasure to watch. I enjoyed them very much, and he is one of my favorite performers too. I love his ideas on scripting your presentations. His marketed effects are killer especially hid Deju Vu Deck.

4. Darwin Ortiz's "Cardshark" and "At The Card Table" series are great buys. I love how he makes his magic HIGH IMPACT. His sleight-of-hand abilities are beyond compare as well.

5. Martin Nash's videos really rock. I think his sleight-of-hand is very good too, and his presentations are really well thought out too. Smile Smile

I don't own many but if I would have to pick it would be On the Loose by Bill Malone.

I'd settle for John Bannon's Impossibilia. His routines are very workable, easy on the sleights and he has some very clever ideas, and most pack a nice punch.

I'm going with...

Ammar's ETMCM DVDs
Malone's On The Loose DVDs
Daryl's Fooler Doolers DVDs
Regal's DVDs

They are simply the best in my mind!

Evan

Okay, I have noticed many people saying how "entertaining" their videos are. But are we looking for entertainment or material? Smile
