I just ran across this at the l&l site: http://www.llpub.com/zenshop/index.php?m......_id=2574

It's sounds awesome. They are tipping their subtrunk methods and cloth handling.
I can't wait until I get it.

"Stage illusionists historically have been extremely secretive about their craft. Not just about the secrets to the illusions themselves— the mechanics are just a small part—but about the real secrets of what turns a stage illusion into a breathtaking moment of pure magic.

Now, for the first time ever on video, Jonathan and Charlotte Pendragon, the “First Couple” of magic and perhaps the greatest exponents of grand illusion ever to grace a stage, lift away the veil and show you the real secrets of stage illusion —the insider information that could only be gained by performing in over 50 countries for the last quarter of a century.

Keep in mind that while these unprecedented DVDs are not so much about the illusions as much as the illusionists (in other words, there are no building plans included though the secret sare frequently disclosed and discussed), Jonathan and Charlotte share their personal philosophy of performing and the inspirations that led to the creation of their most famous illusions. You’ll also learn about the importance of transition effects, choreography, staging and a myriad of other details about how to stage a professional illusion show that only a handful of people in the world are truly capable of sharing. Electrifying live performance footage of the illusions is interspersed with discussions about them with both Jonathan and Charlotte. Also included as bonus material is a fascinating interview with Jonathan by magician Patrick Martin.

This four-volume DVD set will be fascinating for all who love magic. However, for those who actually perform—or aspire to perform—grand illusion, they’re absolutely priceless."

This does sound interesting, and I did not realize they were putting this out. Excellent information, I am sure.

I don't own a single illusion, don't ever plan on performing an illusion. Will I be picking thse up? You bet your bippy. Jonathan's knowledge can be utilized in any branch of magic. Plus, Char is hot.

But I am curious how are made these dvd's I mean Jonathan show the real interlude or the real levitation apparatus like mask jerk ?
I imagine that is about the presentation and other aspects but did he show the apparatus like in M M series

It says Interlude history. The levitation says discussion and demonstration. I am assuming the hoop passes are ones that can be applied to many different levitations. The hoop pass he does for the pole levitation is incredible. I saw it live and could not believe it.

I don't think L&L would put their reputation and business on the line by revealing illusions that have to be bought from an authorized builder.

L&L has a special that if you order more than $100 you get the Greg Wilson in Action dvd set for free. Good timing for all who want to pick up the Pendragon set. Double of what you're paying for.

This will be fantastic for anyone wanting to perform direct powerful strong illusions. I'm sure their insight will be invaluable. Just look at the 1980s Best of Magic series and you can see how ahead of their time the Pendragons were! Some are very simple (in terms of plot and presentation) but just so powerful pieces of illusion. Have you seen the midair suspension vanish? Incredible...

I just talked with Charlotte and she indicated that the illusions like 360 levi, interlude, and impaled etc are tips for those who have them. The 360 levi and Clearly impossible one will still need to purchase performing rights from them if you are going to do them. Just FYI for the group.

Hey guys,
I just viewed the DVD’s. They are GREAT!!! Some of the best money you will ever spend if you are a stage / parlor / platform performer. The tips and advice alone are well worth the price of the DVD’s!
My highest recommendation!
