I received this dvd yesterday. After watching the entire dvd twice I felt like I needed to write a review. I have to say this dvd is AWESOME! The dvd covers ALOT of good idea on act development. Not only do you get Soma's idea on each topic but you get a whole list of other magicians input on the topics! Such as Bob Little, Wayne Houchin, Shawn Farquhar, Han Seol Hui, Rick Merrill, Obie O'Brian, Gabor Tamas, Domenico Dante, David Stone, Tunde Kemenesi, Boris Wild Botond Kelle, Gabor Hokz, An Ha Lim. The biggest question for me when I preordered this dvd was, "How will the dvd be layed out inorder to show the devlopment of a world class act?" I have to say I am very surprised in how well the act was covered! He does not show how any of the effects are done, but rather how each effect was worked on over and over to get it perfect. Many of his original ideas changed so much thru the years, along with his methods. Here is a list of the video clips that compose the dvd:

1-Opening Credits
2-Early Years
3-Prop Development
5-Stage Costumes
6-Choice Of Music
8-Practicing And Failures
9-The FISM Experience

I have to say if you are looking for a dvd that can give you some insight into how to develop your act look no further! I highly recommened this dvd to anyone! Here is a link to see Soma FISM act:

Is this mainly for stage magic development? ?

Magic is a performing art that entertains an audience by creating illusions of seemingly impossible....

I just finished watching this DVD..
it could work for any type of act wanting to develop.
It is a very personal look into Soma and his act development.
It could more realistically be called "Soma: the biography - by Soma (featuring other magicians talking about Soma).
That is not a complaint.. It has some very good advice by some great magicians.. But it always comes back to how amazing Soma is .. But hey, it's his movie! I can tell he really likes to shoot and edit video!
So get It to see what worked for Soma and take as much knowledge from that as you can to try to apply to your act!
