Hey,

Anyone got theirs yet?

I just ordered yesterday but I'm wondering those who preordered before me have gotten this DVD yet.

Thanks

So wait....???

does this mean they havent even been shipped to anyone??

I ordered mine to ship to my current address....but am moving out of this state in less than two weeks....

I was under the impression that if we ordered them from closeupjm that they were shipping from there.....im sure I wasnt the only one with that impression either...

I was one of the first to pre-order (I know because mine was billed under the old Google account originally set up). I don't know if the order received has any bearing.

I have not yet recieved this yet, will keep you posted

He said he is getting them out as fast as possible. There is no way to get them out faster than possible for that would be impossible. So as fast as possible will have to be good enough for you. You should leave a forwarding address with your post office anyway which will take care of the unlikely event that your DVD arrives after you move.

Pre-orders went out on the 11 Feb 09 according to the above statement. 1 week ago today. I would suggest that they never went out as stated because customers would already have them.

I didn't read through the 14 pages of hype but I have to chime in. Dan Hauss told me to watch the download. I did (as a skeptic). I don't like object in bottle effects. They normally don't meet my criteria for a good object in bottle routine:

1. The object should be larger than the opening of the bottle (the big gripe I had with prohibition, factory sealed, and many others). The effect isn't, "See how sneakily I can slip the object in the bottle without you knowing?" The effect is similar to a deck of cards trapped in a bottle or a ship trapped in the bottle. It is impossible to get this object in the bottle in the first place. That is the magic.
2. The trick should be organic. What am I putting in the bottle and why?
3. The handling is clean. This is why very few object in bottle routines have improved on the original fo*ding coin.

I watched the demo. I shrugged it off to the way most demos are shot today (the camera is at the only angle where the trick would work, editing out awkward moments and difficult points of handling, etc.).

I saw Justin at Magifest and he did it EXACTLY as I saw it on the demo. It meets my criteria and is extremely visual to boot.

Props to Justin. That's all I can say.

Sad. This was promised for mid February. I do not understand what is the purpose of taking pre-orders when product is not even ready for shipment


We are all creating this Hype when there is not a product review by someone that has really receive and tested the product. We should be more strict as customers with all producers/vendors of magic.

For instance preorder should be for products that will have a limited edition or is a limited production lot. Not for a product that will be sold everywhere after it has been released.

If we do not do something about it we are going to be pretty much be financing the vendor's businesses.

Interesting criteria. So can you tell me why justin is putting a cap in a bottle?
You say he did it EXACTLY as you saw it on the demo? So he brought you out in an alley and the police showed up before he could show his hands clean and pass out the bottle for examination. Also interesting.

To Joaquin: You don't understand why someone would take preorders when the product is not even ready for shipment? Hmmm... Consider these two keys on your keyboard: SHIFT and 4.

Hi Joaquin,

It is mid February so no promises have been broken. Also, your definition of what a preorder should be is wrong. Please don't confuse "preorder" with "limited edition exclusive". Justin has been in 5 states in 5 days and is very busy. I know he is doing his best to get things out. Everybody who has preordered will get them well before anybody else gets them.

I haven't read through all the pages so maybe this has been answered. It sounds as if you end clean, if that is not true please let me know.
Can the bottle be examined before or after the effect? Or are you not able to let the bottle be examined?

Thanks.

Just a note: there will be plenty of this trick available at your favorite magic shop world wide when it is released to the masses. Be assured if you have pre-ordered from your favorite shop they will have them and will be delivered to you. There are lot of people looking forward to getting “Captured”, me included!
Thank you again Justin for releasing this powerful effect.
