I said exactly the same thing over a year ago. John Guastaferro is a magician from Southern California. David Regal thinks very highly of the guy...and now I do as well.

After David Regal had wrapped the day's shooting for his most recent set he said, "You are all in for a unique and rare treat. John Guastaferro is one of the most skilled sleight of hand card magicians I know."

My first thought was, "After seeing several hours of David can I really sit through elaborate sleight of hand gyrations?" Boy am I glad I stayed because John's magic turned out to be every bit as entertaining as it was masterful.

Yes, he was using advanced sleight of hand, but he was doing it with amazing grace AND he was doing very clear visual magic with it. This is the type of eye popping magic that is entertaining for magicians and laypeople. The plots are concise and memorable and Guastaferro's pacing and framing makes for magic that picks you up and caries you along with it.

I knew I had seen something very special and wonderful that day, and now you can too. I highly recommend John Guastaferro's Brainstorm DVDs. In fact, I look forward to getting mine to see exactly how he did that amazing magic which still seems so fresh in my mind over a year later!!!

Cheers,
Tom

EXACTLY what Tom said! When Louis Falanga sent me these DVDs, I said "Who?" and to be honest, wasn't all that excited about it. After watching for only a few moments, I was hooked.

"John G." is a talented guy who does some amazing stuff. He is entertaining, likeable and has some really original concepts. If you like David Regal, you will love John. If you are looking to add new, exciting card magic to your arsenal—get these DVDs. I've watched them several times already!

Tom and Steve,

Thanks for the kind words. I'm hopeful others will also be pleased with the magic on Brainstorm 1 & 2. It was my goal to present magic that is strong, entertaining, creative—and perhaps most importantly—doable in the real world. I think it will be an enjoyable DVD and a tool to help viewers add some highly entertaining card foolers to their repertoire.

Tom, thanks for your first-hand audience account of the filming. It was a fun day!

Thanks to everyone for your interest in the Brainstorm DVDs. I welcome any comments.

To Peo and others interested in purchasing the Brainstorm DVDs.

I just added capability on my website to accept Paypal orders. Go to http://www.johnGstudio.com and enter the "magic studio >> Brainstorm DVDs." (This is the first time I've used e-commerce capabilities on my website, so please let me know if there are any problems.)

Tommy, the Brainstorm DVDs contain card effects ONLY. In the future, I plan on releasing a variety of card and close-up effects.

Thanks John, but I couldn't wait for them, so I ordered the set from Hocus Pocus but please keep me informed of future releases of your magic and I will buy from you directly. I'm using PayPal myself, so there should be no problem.

Most of the effects on Brainstorm simply require a standard deck of playing cards, with perhaps the addition of some extra cards from different deck. Only five of the 20 effects require something more, but they are easily attainable (business cards, clear plastic card holder, blank-faced cards, squeaker, etc.)

If you order through my website, I am offering a signed set of DVDs for $60, with a FREE clear plastic wallet to perform the effect "Lost & Found" which is getting rave reviews. (Note: At this time, I can only accept U.S./Canada orders.)

Thanks to everyone for you interest,
John G.

Lost and Found is a kick *** routine which will fry everybody. I can't believe John gave this up but I thank him for giving it to the magicians of the world.

Cheers,

If anyone is considering these DVDs, you should jump on them. You will not regret it. I have seen John perform these effects on people and let me tell you...they fry everyone. I have seen many a magician fried by his effects as well. These DVDs who wants to floor people.

Hi All,

I brought John G. to L&L's attention. I did this for one reason only—he is terrific. I don't make a dime on his DVD series, but I will happily tell you this: John Guastaferro has the stuff and many of his effects are instantly recognizable as keenly thought out card miracles that are far and away superior to the run of the mill glop that is sold these days. I honestly think it is impossible for a card magician (of any skill level) to purchase these DVDs and be disappointed.
