If you want to learn the sleights, go for Daryl`s Encyclopedia of Card Sleights. No waste there.

Oh boy... Then I best not recommend the Dai Vernon "Revelations" series.

I'm surprised that no-one here has mentioned Michael Close Ultimate Workers DVDs.

I can't say that his performance style appeals to me, but the teaching element for an "intermediate" cardician is great (not really beginner, as some passes and palms are used, as well as the use of a memorized deck).

I have to agree with dynamite. John G. definitely has some creative effects in his Brainstorm series. I love the fact that most of the tricks take little preparation, but manage to create a tremendous reaction!

I'd say definately De'vo's Cradle To Grave DVD. Mostly because it has magical items(non-gimmicked card rise, box vanish, CTG magical routine, packet vanish, and flourish items(flipback fan, Heaven Display and more)and the moves continue coming long after you bought it from a special forum. They keep on adding moves and giving away free stuff. It's almost like a magazine subscription. There are over 20+ moves between the forum and the DVD, and more are coming.

Gotta love a DVD that always gives back.

I have purchased probably a dozen dvds from members in the "Lets make a deal" forum. The prices are roughly 50 to 60% of the current retail. At those prices, you don't have to be as careful with your selections. If don't like one of your purchases, sell it and you are usually out only the cost of shipping.

Cheers,

Tiki

For lots of card effects very clearly explained, and pretty good stuff for a beginner, I like Harry Lorayne's DVDs or VHS. He talks VERY quickly, so he packs in a lot of material! He has a style very classic for some New Yorkers (but not all of us:) , but even if you don't like his persona, his card tricks and methods get good reactions, in impromptu settings, in my experience.

Get Johnny Thompson's "Classic of Magic" v.1-4. You get a history lesson, entertainment, a catalog of modern close up magic and video evidence of a black gentleman turning white all rolled into one.



rawdawg - Hit the nail on the head, Johnny Thompson's Commercial Classics of Magic 1-4 are my favorite set of videos. Some of the best magic you will find is on this set of video's taught by a true master. I can't give these a higher recommendation.

Theater, cinemas, and literature are all better forums for telling stories or creating drama. Stand-up comedy is better for telling jokes. But magic is unique in creating the Twilight Zone sense of turning a corner and finding yourself on another street, in another town, in another country. Deception is the means to that end. –John Bannon

Is stars of magic on DVD? I thought cradle to the crave was mostly flourishy cuts - has anyone reviewed it? Devil's picute book is great (though sadly not on DvD)using a lot of Green's slieghts. Green magic Vol. 1 is IMO an essential dvd for all card workers.

For the sleights, Daryl`s Encyclopedia of Card Sleights is the best ever.

I just got done watching Cellini's "The Magic That Can Be Performed Anywhere" DVD. I am stunned!! What a great DVD!! Words fail me in trying to adequately express how powerful this DVD is and how appreciative I am for its release. Great routines. Great and complete explanations. Great production qualities. There is NO fluff or filler on this video. Every item on the DVD is quite visual and is a "worker". The sleights and methodologies are, relatively speaking, easy to learn and rely more on timing than on knuckle-busting sleights.

While still in this state of shock, all I can manage at this point is a simple heartfelt "Thank You" to both Koz and Cellini for their unselfishness in sharing this information with the magic community.

Mike

P.S. I'm looking forward to next watching the "The Art of Street Perfoming" series put out by Cellini and Koz.

Koz just mentioned that a new Cellini/Slydini DVD will be out next month. I can hardly wait. I wonder if this will be Volume 4 of the "The Art of Street Perfoming" series or willinstead be a separate DVD issue.
Magic is a vanishing Art.

This must not be Kansas anymore, Toto.

Eschew obfuscation.
