A short review:

Gerard's DVD is refreshingly short and to the point (about 30 minutes in length for all the segments).

You will laugh out loud when you see how devilishly simple his thinking is and what a killer effect this will be in the right hands. Unfortunately, I can also see this being abused by those who don't take the time to study Gerard's presentation refinements and suggestions. As an analogy, think of how badly you've seen the Haunted Key butchered by inept performances and, yet, in skillful hands the same effect is a true miracle.

For those of you who think you've figured out the method from the previous posts, IMHO Gerard's handling, method, and development nuances are worth the price of the DVD, alone. Gerard's method takes this out of the "puzzle/curiosity" class and into a class all by itself. Pros will be using this and I doubt they have figured the complete methodology out, themselves.

The most amazing thing about this effect is how nearly self-working it happens to be. Gerard wanted an effect that allowed himself, as the performer, to suspend his own disbelief and put his full faith into the presentation. He has more than done that! You will, too, once you perform this they way Gerard suggests.

I don't think any more can be said without giving anything away. What you saw on the teaser trailer is what you get! This looks like the real thing (even to you).

This is one of those of effects that I was just thrilled with from the moment I watched the DVD. I can't give it higher ratings.

Enjoy. - Scott

Does it need to be 100% paper bills? The bills in my country are paper but they have something more in them to make them last longer.

Hmmm. Not seeing any new posts. I take it the mailman was unkind. Mine too but I expected that. I received a number of packages today that I've been expecting for quite some time. I suspect the mail delivery at least in the US will remain spotty for awhile longer. I noticed long lines at the post office. Sigh.

Well today my mailman showed me Energy bill. I asked him where learned it. He said from here then proceeded to give me my open package. Just kidding I felt like being a smart ass.

I did not see the mailman today, nor did I receive a package. But all the bills that arrived were folded...

All my bills flew away. My $5 bills, my $10s, my $20s. . . Get it? Bills? Huh? Huh?
OK. I'll be quiet.

I revived mine today. I think I know why:

1) I'm a giant Gerard fan.
2) Gerard is Canadian
3) My Grandparents were Canadian
4) I believe in real magic

OK, enough of that.

The DVD did in fact arrive. There is a performance, a detailed explanation with performance tips and he talks about how he came about creating it.

The principle is simple, but the gold is in having a professional performer of Gerard's caliber sharing performance tips and his thinking.

This is done with a BORROWED bill. A.G. shows ho to get into it and how to SELL it.

GET THIS!

The DVD arrived yesterday. I was practicing immediately, I had to see this in action myself. By the time my wife made it home through HORRIFIC traffic in San Francisco, I had the basics (JUST the basics, there's lots in this DVD).

I tried a modification I had been thinking about and my wife said it looked great (which is rare praise after all she's seen, most pros don't get it and I VERY rarely do).

Great job, you guys will love this. Once I get my routine down to do it out of the house, I'll toss up a review.

Mine came yesterday as well. Gave it a quick watch last night after work and it looks good. Well explained with lots of tips.

Hi Lads,
Thanks for those great responses. If you know me at all you know I always try to over deliver....This is a rare gem of an effect that can never be "busted" if you know what I mean... I am so glad you guys are enjoying Energy Bill.

best AG
PS
I have something coming that is by far the best thing to date...... hmmmmmmm.
