Fair question about the scripting and I would say no. These are "street magic" type effects presented by a likeable guy and technically taught well. They are not, at least in my opinion, "motivated." The best magician is a great entertainer with great scripts, great magic, great jokes, etc. Only a handful I have seen fit this bill. Sometimes several but not all of these qualities are sufficient

Sorry Markymark!

I was really only kidding around with what I said. Besides, I'm never in a bad mood. Smile

Detailed review? The only thing you need to here is " buy it... buy it now" some of the most commercial close up work that I have seen in a "long long long long long long long time"

No problem Dan,I do understand that some of us want to be spoonfed!

I often find an interesting script acts as a springboard for an original idea of
my own.Of course every trick does not have to be motivated but I tend to watch
those sort of dvd's more then once just for entertainment value.
I'm thinking of Tommy Wonder,Matthew Wright,Bill Abbott and lately I'm watching
the Del Ray dvd over and over.
But maybe the future of magic[as JamieD puts it] is quicker tricks!

Yes I purchased the download.....all I have to say is Calen's thinking reminds me a little of Paul Harris' style but with a unique flair. I am very impressed. These effects use a good balance of sleights, subtlety, misdirection, older principles, very simple gimmicks, and just great, offbeat thinking. Excellent job, would totally recommend this.

I would be inclined to agree. many can do magic, few can perform magic, and even few can entertain with it. (Fooling people does not equal entertainment) I think the best effect on here is the cell phone/rubber band effect personally.

For all those who have purchased Function 9... Calen and Alan Rorrison have created an impromptu version of Transport that is awesome. Check it out here http://www.papercranemagic.com/transportimpromptu.htm

Can anyone say whether the version/explanation of Transit on this DVD is exactly the same as the one on the Transit stand-alone DVD? Just wondering because I have a new copy of Transit still in the wrapper, but will probably sell it without opening it after I get the Function(9) DVD, unless there is some reason to own both. Thanks.

Maxfieldsmagic: Yes, the full routine is taught. On each version there is a unique alternative handling taught, but each has the full original routine.

Hope that helps!

I bought this and I was impressed! I really liked loaded and will use it because it fits what I do so well....
Honestly I think you and Dan Hauss should jam because he is a major gimmick person and you have similar styles. I think you both could really do some damage to the magic community. (just my opinion)

In the routine Trans(port) Calen uses a yellow rubber band which it is very similar to the other "thing" he uses with ,in the same effect.

I just can not find that kind of rubber bands to match that "thing". If any of you guys know where I can get those yellow rubber band I would really appreciate it if you can post a link and so forth.

thanks in advance.

This DVD received an awesome review on the Wizard Product Review. I think they referred to it as one of the best DVDs of the decade. Placed my order this morning.
