3-volume boxed set

BEYOND STREET MAGIC!
FILMED LIVE ON LOCATION AT BURNING MAN AND LAKE TAHOE!

The middle of the Nevada desert. Four hundred square miles of nothing. Not even streets. Just 50,000 people attending the world’s largest art festival. It’s Survival Magic and there are no spectators, only participants in the most extreme conditions imaginable. Welcome to Burning Man and Magic at the Edge! Since the dawn of time, magicians have sought inspiration in the most unusual places. Burning Man is one of the most inspiring environments for performance magic in all the world.

You’ve seen Jeff McBride featured on A&E’s Mindfreak, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and VH-1’s Celebracadabra. Now you can see Jeff in action performing his magic at one of the wildest places in the world, the Burning Man Art Festival. But this is far more than just a performance video. It is a teaching video, an exploration that searches for the very heart and soul of magic. Here is an inside look into the lifestyle of one of the world’s great magicians and how and why he seeks inspiration.

Magic at the Edge offers magic for all skill levels, with commentary from Eugene Burger and Jeff’s wife, Abbi McBride. They share their philosophies and techniques on performance. They teach you how you can add more meaning to your existing routines and use your magic to teach powerful lessons. Polish the magic you already perform and experience the wisdom of these masters of the art.

DISC 1: MAGICIAN 24/7

EFFECTS
TRIBAL PIERCING - An impromptu shocker! Push your thumb through your ear—listen to the screams!
MAGIC WISHING RAINBOW - Your participant’s wish comes true with a surprise gift! A lesson in eye contact and engagement.
RAINBOW TO DOLLAR - You will conjure a rainbow from the air and transform it into real money your participant can keep!
WISHING RAINBOW/RAINBOW TO ROSE - The magic rainbow is back and transforms into the gift of a rose. An effect sure to melt the heart and make a lasting memory.
MAGIC BUBBLES - Enchanted bubbles become real in your participant’s hand! This effect can silence crying children and might even get you a first-class airline upgrade!
HINDU ROPE / RISING CARD - An immaculate rising card, totally impromptu, with a mythic presentation. Better than nearly any gaffed deck version.
THE BEAD & STRING MYSTERY - Break free from bondage! A ritual of liberation that enpowers your participants to set their minds free.
WORLD’S FASTEST HANDS - Jeff’s super fast card opener: two participants’ cards revealed—really really fast. A close-up illusion that defies explanation.
NO SMOKING - A magical performance with the intention of healing and perhaps empowering your friends to quit smoking.

The demo is also available on L&L's site, on the home page - http://www.llpub.com

Personally I'm looking forward to this set. Looks really different than anything either L&L or McBride have previously released. Looking at the product description, there's a lot of material on these.

I always learn something from McBride. Add in some Eugene Burger and you know you're going to get some quality performances and magic.

This isn't going to be a "tricks" DVD set. This is going to be a Master Class with one of the greatest performing and teaching magicians of our time.

I can't keep up with all the fantatstic releases this year. It's like all the producers and inventors got together and said "let's make this the year of the close-up magician".

Having been in many of Jeff's Secret Sessions (really mini Master Classes) over the past 8 years, I am familiar with much of this material. I do some of it on a daily basis. Some of it came out of Burning Man, and some came from Jeff's desire to do some really off the wall close-up magic when warming up the audience for his stage show.

The pieces I do know about are some of the most practical items out there and they really work well with almost any audience. Jeff and Eugene's impromptu, do-it-anywhere version of the Chen Lee Water Suspension breathes new life into this classic and I can tell you it gets great reactions.

But the best part about most of this material is that for the audiences, it looks and feels DIFFERENT from what the typical magicians (read: David Blaine wannabes) are doing.

This set is worth your attention, especially if you do close-up or parlor magic and/or want some great magic you can do seemingly impromptu and even for promo. I do some of this material for bookers and it kills. One the routines I use all the time as a special "Thank you" for the client at the end of the event.

While I haven't seen the DVDs, the material is very strong. You'll get it for the tricks, but you'll keep coming back to it for the advice and theory sessions.

Eric, I know exactly what you mean. I bought this set immediately. Funny to hear from him that his streamer and banknote is his most performed effect, period.

What are all these other fantastic releases of 2008? I can't think of any, to be honest.

Remind me.

It does seem to be.There is a full list on the L&L website.
It looks like a must have set to me!
I love the helpful advice that Jeff or Eugene share on projects such as these.
If you don't like the metaphysical type presentations that Jeff tends to use-leave
them out and try and put your own slant on them.
The crowd still waiting on the Doc Hilford set won't be happy though!

I'll be happy to see the thumb through the ear. I assume this is from Mac King's book and I could never understand the directions on how to do it (of what it looks like).

I was there during the filming of much of this series at Burning Man. It should be a fun product.
