Hello Café Members,
Does anyone know of a DVD which has dsecent explanations of some of the basic moves on several fields of the art eg coins, balls rope etc which I could recommend to someone? Nearly all my DVD's are specific to one subject.

Made in Australia means it is in PAL format, not NTSC (US standard), this may be a problem for the DVD player or the TV, but not necessarily.

the funniest thing about this DVD is that it costs twice as much in Australia compared to the US price

Unless the info HAS to be in video format, you might want to look at the book "Hugard's Magic Manual," available on Amazon for about $12; click HERE for more info.

This is a Dover reprint of the 1939 "Modern Magic Manual" by Jean Hugard. It contains chapters on coins, cards, balls, rings, ropes, eggs, cigarettes, watches, silks and so forth. A great book to get started with sleight-of-hand, at less than 50% of the price of a DVD.

Please note that I'm not knocking DVD's, either -- they are very good for learning exactly how sleights should be done. I never could have learned a double lift without them! But I don't know of a comprehensive DVD, maybe someone can recommend one. SETH

I don't think there is one single comprehensive DVD as the branches of magic are so varied. I wonder if someday someone would put out a TArbell Course on DVDS?

Anyway, back to your question, I find the most comprehensive SET would be the 17-vol Brad Burt DD series - covering cards, coins, sponge balls, linking rings, chop cup, billiard balls, thimbles. He's a fantastic detailed teacher and the DVDs are well shot and very meticulous. Also, Brad's a really great guy to deal with!

I've been thinking and I found the good answer, it's patrick page secret seminars volume 1-6, with topics from TT, card to wallet, 3 shell games and topit techniques, rope and paper tricks and his highly recommended sponge balls dvd. as for the last one it's about gags and tricks for kids show.

I think Jeff McBride has a 3 DVD set with multiple effects that include thimbles, coins, cards, etc. "art of manipulation"
