I'm trying to locate the name of a relatively old video.

I think the VHS video tape was produced by A-1 but I couldn't locate it in their current stock. (I may have the wrong A-1)

Anyway, the tape was a kind of "underground" tape in that it was produced at a magic convention (a FISM?) and what happened was that certain magician attendees were each asked to contibute one trick for the tape. The production quality was very primitive (just shot against a neutral wall (or sheet) background with a table (if needed) lots of bright lights and very primitive camera technique.

Some of the performers/performances I remember watching from the tape:

Joe Givan--Doing a linking pretzel effect.
Dan Garrett--Doing a great version of 6-card repeat.
Unknown--Doing a cracking your neck (audible) move
John Carney (I think)
Paul Gertner (I think)

And approximately 10-15 other magicians each performing one effect.

Anyone have any idea the name of this tape and who produced it and whether or not it is still obtainable?

Thanks for any info.

Mike

Secret Sessions. It is available from any magic dealer. All three volumes are now on one video. Smile

The video is Secret Session #2 (I think it was number two) filmed at an early FFFF convention when it was held at Abbott's Square in Buffalo. (It was only there for 2 or 3 years before it moved out to Batavia.)

Oh, and the main producer was Bob Kohler. I do not know if it is still available.
