Manufactures Write Up:
Effortless Effects features seven full routines, all of which utilizes techniques that will absolutely decimate even knowledgeable magicians. So just IMAGINE how fooled normal spectators will be! There is no back tracking these effects, the methods are just too devious.
How accurate is the ad copy?
It's a little deceptive. The phrases "no sleight of hand" and "no sleights to worry about" is untrue in my opinion. Nothing is truly "effortless" and while this is a good DVD for a beginner in Magic, it will require practice and a few controls.
What's in the box?
A single DVD
These are 7 very creative and DIFFERENT effects, in other words, you're not just getting variations on a single effect, you're getting 7 different tricks you could easily string into a routine.
This is very enjoyable to watch, the magic is fun and I think there is something here for all skill levels.
Is it well taught:
Ryan spends a lot of time showing you the details of each effect. There is a lot of content on this DVD.
How are the production values:
Very well done. HD camera, multiple shots, attractive spectators and Ryan is entertaining to watch. (not to mention he has STAR WARS stuff on his bookshelf behind him!)
Overall score: 10/10
