I recently purchased some of Ozer's tutorials from his web site. Here's a review of one of the effects presented, Hofsinzer's Delusion.

Tutorial length: 4min 40 sec.

Sleights taught/used: Flip-it move, flip-flop-plop, gambler's cop, siva count, riffle force, double lift.

Clarity of instruction: Very good. Oz moves through the routine quickly. He does not waste time on the basics, but shows all the important sleights in an easy to see manner.

Audio quality: Clear, with no drop outs.

Video quality: Same quality as his website demos. Single view camera angle. Oz does a good job of moving his hands within the frame to demonstrate what he is explaining.

Bang for the buck: Hard to determine. This is my only (minor) quibble. At $8 per tutorial it is more expensive than buying a DVD with 6-8 routines on it for $30, and is obviously not as slickly produced.
I purchased four tutorials and got the fifth one free, bringing the cost per tutorial down a bit. I am willing to cough up the exta money to support a member who has taken the time and effort to put out something like this but would expect more from a professionally released project.

Over all I think Oz has done a nice job given the limitations of production and fitting in a tutorial constrained by file size. He credits all the relevent moves (except for flip-flop-plop which he uses, but does not "teach") when necessary for those of you concerned about such things.

Bottom line: I will purchase more of Oz's tutorials for the routines that interest me, and will certainly give his forthcomming DVD a close look.

Great Job OZ!

learning just one slight correctly is well worth the cost,
you could by a novelity trick that breaks and the trick is lost.
However learning slights will last a life time

Thanks guys! I am trying to fit as much into each tutorial as possible, and think that the prices are pretty low. I agree with Vinny 100% on the fact that a sleight will last you a lifetime. Learn one good force, one good double, and one good control and you could do magic for a lifetime, and lots of it. Thanks again Gandolf for your honest review and kind words. Information on my DVD, as well as a trailer video, will be going up on the site this week. Be sure to check out http://www.watchmagic.com
