Manufacturer's Write Up:
With Rubber Bang, Sean Yang makes his magical DVD debut to teach you how to do all of this AND MORE. Each trick comes with complete step-by-step instructions, down to such basics as how to select rubber bands and perform a controlled shuffle, so that even the most novice magician will be able to pull these tricks out of his hat in no time flat. The DVD also includes mock performances by Sean Yang himself, so you can see each trick in the hands of an expert magician before putting it in to action on your own. No need to worry about coming up with a new performance script!
How accurate is the ad copy?
Very accurate, all skill levels and relatively easy to do (with some practice)
What's in the box?
DVD and a small baggie of 5 rubber bands
Rubber band magic is FAST and highly visual
Is it well made:
Two hours of instruction for 9 effects, plus they even give you rubber bands? I'd say they've given you as much as they can.
Is it well taught:
Hard to say since it's in Chinese, but the method portions are well shot (although in different camera angles the card faces "change" on you so pay attention). I'd say Sean did everything he could to make it appeal to a broad audience. But for me... 2 hours of silent teaching was difficult to sit through.
How are the production values:
Moderate. Nothing is under shot, but it can be a little cheesy in moments.
Despite my negative comments, this is a great DVD with highly original effects. I think these tricks are fun to watch AND fun to perform and if you like rubber band magic - this is a MUST BUY for you.
