Does anyone know if there has been an official date for the DVD release yet? It's on my most anticipated release list and I would love to see this effect in action from the master himself.
"The Swan Song" is my last release to the mentalism community. Only a few copies remain!

"Unholy Grail" is now available! Features Perfected Day for Any Date, Ultimate PK Touches, Triple Drawing Duplication, and The Presence (my ghost effect)! Everything is 100% prop-less!

"Tres" LIMITED EDITION e-Book contains my signature "No Touches" PK Touches! Now SOLD OUT!

"Reverie" is for sale! Features extremely strong, 100% prop-less mentalism effects!

"Secret Files" is NOW AVAILABLE directly through me. Contains the EASIEST DAY FOR ANY DATE version!!!

Banachek gave a brief update about the DVD in a thread in Innner Thoughts.

Greetings,

As Banachek and I have both stated numerous times, there is no "Banachek PK Touch DVD". There IS a DVD set that features both of us performing/teaching, and on that set, Banachek performs and teaches "PK Touches" for the first time on video.

The set is shot, edited, and awaiting the final bits of work before the DVDs themselves can be physically produced and sold.

The original delay was caused by the unexpected release of my "Mental Deceptions" set (after seven years of it being held by the producers of those DVDs), and the need to not have both sets come out at the same time.

However, after an appropriate amount of time had passed, another delay was thrust upon me when I was unexpectedly hit with another very serious medical condition. I went through extensive surgery at the beginning of October, only to find myself in much worse shape after the operation. As it turns out, although the situation was indeed very serious, the diagnosis was completely incorrect, which means that the doctor did the wrong surgery. Even worse, the surgery itself was botched and has come undone, leaving me in a very weakened state, and dangerous situation, for months.

Today I completed my final tests before my next scheduled surgery (yes, with new doctors) in less than two weeks. But, before that happens, the doctors will find out from today's tests if my heart is strong enough to survive the operation. I won't know that until Tuesday. If it is, that's great and the operation occurs the following week. But, if my heart is not strong enough, no one knows what we do from here.

With all of that said, all projects are completely on-hold.

I honestly do appreciate the interest that everyone has in "PK Touches", but to be honest, I simply no longer have the strength to respond to constant emails and private messages. Plus, just saying that I was not able to complete the project didn't seem to be enough of an "excuse" for some folks, so I have decided to just do my best to gather a tiny bit of strength and tell everyone what is going on.

I apologize for the delay, but I am completely serious when I say that fighting for my life is keeping me from thinking about anything else right now.

Finally, I am very exhausted after today's tests, so I am sorry for any typos or mistakes in the message.

Thanks very much.


Keep the change,
Rick

I personally feel there is no need for you to apologize for anything Rick. The only thing that matters right now is your health and the loved ones around you. Get better soon and I hope to see all goes well here in the future.

Things like this put everything else into perspective. Get well, Rick. That's what matters now.

I've watched that lecture since. Thanks Smile Interesting stuff. I think context is key for this effect: setting the mood up. Doing it quickly or launching with it in an impromptu environment before they know what you do with Banachek's method is not as deceptive to some skeptical people from my experience

Have you guys experienced this?
