Close-Up Magic #2 (Worlds Greatest Magic)
Imagine the best magic, the best magicians, and the best producers all in one place, imagine no more....
Imagine owning the most comprehensive magic book ever written. This would surely be a treasured possession for any magician with each chapter focusing on a single aspect of the craft and the very best routines ever created for it. Thats the idea behind L&L Publishings critically-acclaimed DVD series, The Worlds Greatest Magic by The Worlds Greatest Magicians! Each volume is like another chapter in the worlds best magic book. Featuring in-depth exposition and instruction on some of magics most cherished and classic effects by its most-talented practitioners, this unprecedented series represents an essential reference work for anyone interested in the magical arts, regardless of their skill level.
Magicians who specialize in close-up magic are constantly in search of material that doesnt use playing cards. Easily seventy-five percent of the magic thats been published over the last 50 or 60 years has been card magic of one kind or another so quality non-card material is a relatively scarce commodity in the literature.
On this DVD, youll meet eight different performers presenting and teaching powerful close-up routines that will wow any audience - and theres not a playing card in sight! Eugene Burger and David Parr begin this volume with a stunning update of U. F. Grants classic bill transposition. Banachek is next with a sensational book test while J. J. Sanvert combines two effects to create a wonderful interlude with a spectators borrowed bill. Gregory Wilson follows with a mind-boggling bill switch routine that takes the audience on a figurative trip around the world while Paul Wilson performs and teaches a streamlined version of John Ramsays classic Cylinder and Coins. Finally, Daryl demonstrates a totally impromptu one-cup routine that can be performed any time and any place.
Its been said that even the worlds largest and most spectacular stage illusion cannot create the impact - that feeling of pure astonishment - of a good, well-performed piece of close-up magic and on this DVD, youll find eight compelling pieces of evidence to that effect.
