I am a new comer, but was surprised to see only a few votes for D. Roth and none for John Carney? Inspired by Steven's 1st Coin Classics, I am going to get some Carney materials as soon as I work through Roth's Expert Coin M.
Most folks just listed with few comments. So, a compilation may be interesting. Hope I did not mangle anyone's name.

I have not seen the Carney stuff yet, but I have read great reviews. When he lectures in the Bay Area on the 14th of July I will try to buy these DVD's. I am sure they will be tremendous.

I just love watching this tape!! I think Dan Sylvester is a genius at routining. And watching his sight gags (especially his pulling his tongue), is priceless.


P.S. And his Syvester Pitch and other sleights are sooo well executed and thought out. His pitch of a egg plant (Yes!! An EGGPLANT!!) is just astounding.
Magic is a vanishing Art.

This must not be Kansas anymore, Toto.

Eschew obfuscation.

Good lord, I am glad to know Magic Café. So many information for a beginner like me. I have bought Daryl's encyclopedia, Allan, Bill Malone, Michael Close.
They are all good DVDs, thanks so much for this forum.

Ok, I've now seen On the Loose and have to agree, it's absolutely one of the best sets of DVDs I've ever watched.

In no particular order:

Michael Close's: Very very close
Max Maven's Video Mind
Henry Evans Something more than an illusion (I liked these despite the fact that they are gimmicky)
Greg Wilson: On the spot
Greg Wilson: Card Stunts
John Guastaferro: Brainstorm
Sal Piacente - Expert Card Magic

I can't say anything about the On the Loose series because I don't have it yet (based on how many people say it's great, I have it on order already!)

Jees! I can't believe someone mentioned the Revelations series. They are pretty awful. Daryl looks bored as hell and the paid audience look catatonic.

I wouldn't pick 10 as there are so many average ones around. But the best I've seen are

Devils Picturebook by Derren Brown - superlative card/mental magic performed really well with good teaching. Great to watch over and over.

Stealing The Show by James Freedman - excellent pickpocket DVD. Sets a standard in high quality teaching and production. Enjoyable to watch

Daryl Does the Full Monte - complete, well performed, well taught. I ended up with a good routine from this .

True, he does look bored but, there is so many different ways to revel a card. I do not think you need all 5, but buy a couple of them.

I don't have 10 dvd's yet but...
in no particular order here goes

the very best of jay sankey vol. 2
michael Ammar etmcm vol. 1-2
daryl encyclopedia of card sleights vol 8
daryl does the full monte
Richard Kaufman basic technique

I took quite a bit of time before I made each purchase to ensure that I would'nt be wasting my money.

next on the list will most likely be something from the OTL series by Bill Malone, any suggestions as to which one of the four tapes is the best would be greatly appreciated.

Some of my favorites are

Guy Hollingworth -- Renditions
Lennart Green -- Green Magic vol. 3
Paul Harris -- Immaculate Close Up in the Stars of Magic series (I particularly like Stapled and The Unshuffle.)
David Regal -- Magic of David Regel vol. 1
the old Videotronics Dai Vernon series (fabulous: The Professor himself)
Alex Elmsley -- Magic of Alex Elmsley (Volume 1 explains and routines with the Elmsley Count.)

The Elmsley material is so good it made my first visit to the Magic Castle a bit boring -- at least the card part of it!
