Cheers guys!

Also, if anyone is interested, I'll be doing a 4 hour workshop on Sunday the 23rd of January (1pm to 5pm) at the Magic Apple in Los Angeles after my run at the Magic Castle!



Any chance we can get you to come up here to San Francisco and do the same?

I'm north of Frisco. I might have to make a drive down to LA!

Todd, I'd have loved to! But I'm only there for like a week and it's a very busy week indeed already.

I really hope you can make it down though! Really looking forward to it Smile

Best wishes,
Col.

This dvd is very interesting. Good performances, incredible effects.
Your thinking Colin is amazing.Very bold . Keep your good work.
My review of each effect:




Disc #1 - stage material

(I don't perform in stage, Im a hobbiest, so I just will give my impressions about each effect)

Bookless Test: With this effect I think that your boldness appears. Maybe a too strong effect just for the beggining of any act , but the method is genius. Apparently prop less.

Quite Wordy: Incredible ideas for book test. You need a necessary sized book, but is worth the effort.

Take A Seat: Simple chair test. Great results and very interesting subtleties.

ANAAC: A great approach to the classic any card at any number effect. Hands off .

Who's Got My Money: A cute mindreading effect with a serial number divination. Versatile method for other ideas. The Bill can be borrowed.

Make the ESP Cards Match: Not my favorite . Some lose moments in the procedure.

Lottery: The effect that worth the price of the dvd. Great results

Winning Numbers: Kind a reverse effect from the last one. A lot of great ideas.

Newspaper Tear Routine: I like this effect as well as the Lottery one. Great interaction with the audience.

Close-Up:

Result: I try this idea. Very good one. Personally I change a little bit the handling, but the performance is very good.

Furtive Switch: A practical one hand technique . I don't try it yet in performance, but isn't difficult.

Bolder Business: A great approach of drawing duplications.

Serial Prevaricator: Uf... other one that for me worth the price. This effect is based in a great subtlety. Bold and beautiful.

Kolintrol : Words can make miracles. This is one great example.

Double Card Thought Projection: I don't like very much this effect. I prefer other card effects honestly.

For 62 dollars, is an incredible and recommended dvd.

Congratulations Mr. Mcleod

Nice wife! I don't even ask mine for magic anymore for fear of being throttled.

I might purchase this set as an X-Mas gift for myself.


Cameron, You should have bought it for your wife mate!

Just got my set from Alakazam - please, no-one disturb me this weekend!

I've been getting a lot of messages asking where this is available. I know that most websites have sold out, however I've just found 6 copies tucked away in my case from a lecture I gave before Christmas... so if anyone is looking to buy this, there are now 6 copies available at http://www.colinmcleod.com ! Hope that helps!

Best wishes,
Col.

Last weekend I performed Kolintrol. I searched for the note and realize that's the wrong. I put the wrong in the wallet and take the right one. When I show the prediction the spectator was more amazed about the fact that of the note was something written. In his mind was the picture from the wrong unwritten note.He also convinced the other of this fact. What a climax Smile

Can any of the stage effects be done close-up with some slight changes/modifications?

I definitely think most could be... however, better to get someone else's opinion! I could take any of them and do them close up, lets put it that way. Some I probably wouldn't, however COULD if requested!

Im asking, because I want to look into more mentalism stuff and add some effects to my restaurant and strolling work. But I will definately give your DVD's a shot

Possibly but usually would not be practical. Great method however.

Re: ACAAN... As I said earlier in the thread, the explanation on the DVD provides an alternative method for getting the card and an alternative method for getting the number. With these changes, I believe the effect can be done close up.

I second this. In fact I performed it close-up (with a very minor alteration)earlier tonight for a couple of fellow magicians... Worked a treat!
