I also have the dvd and feel there are better. The moves are okay and explained to a reasonable standard, however the DVD does not look like there was an attention to detail, for example the MAin Menu is shocking and may as well not be there, just one menu with no sub menus is a really useless way of navigating the DVD. As a magician however from what I can tell the guy really knows what he is doing shame the makers of the DVD didn't. I mean who shoots a close up magician from the widest angle possible? It is irritating that people who film these DVD's really do not know how to set up shots, I understand that they may only have one camera but that is never an excuse, you just film it twice from two angles.
People may say that these DVD's are put out at a low budget but the price of the DVD should reflect this when on sale.

I think that someone should mention that during the explanations, the shots are very close up and very clear. And, when needed during the explanations, there is more than one angle. The explanations are quite good and I do like the controls. I am happy with the DVD.

Same and pretty much after every control or move the camera does a very slow shot of it once or twice more which I like very much.

I had this dvd and didn't really care for it. The first couple of effects were good, but the rest is of the tricks I didn't care for because it involved too much plaming and the slieghts were really difficult to do. That's my 2 cents.

I thought it was a good DVD, It was very funky how the guy dubbing his voice, said the stuff he did. Its hard to explain but it was funny. It definitely has some stuff to think about. Over all I think it was a good DVD.

Best,
Brad

"Too much palming and difficult slieghts", that means practice. I think it was Vernon that said "palming seperates the men from the boys". I'm not trying to dis you but palming opens the door to so many miricles that couldn't be achived any other way. Oh yeah, it's not about hand size with palming it is more a confidence thing in my humble opinion.
