Manufacturer's Write Up:
How often has this happened to you - you're at a party and someone comes up and says 'hey, I hear you're a magician... can you show me a trick?'. Your mind goes blank. You have none of your gear with you - no thumb tip, no sharpie, no gaff decks, no magnetic ring, nothing. All you have is a deck of cards. (Or maybe your new friend hands you THEIR deck!).
On Ultimate Impromptu Card Magic Cameron Francis has collected together a host of absolutely KILLER magic that you can unleash at a moment's notice. These 14 routines are easy to perform, but shockingly powerful. Learn these tricks and you'll NEVER be stuck for a spectator frying miracle again!!
Easy to do
No props required (other than a deck of cards)
Perform any time, any where, with anyone's deck (even missing some cards)
No setups needed
All strong material - no filler
How accurate is the ad copy? I would argue that these tricks are only "easy" if you are proficient in card magic. You need to know your way around a deck of cards. This DVD is included in the Essential Card Magic collection - at the end of the collection (meaning, you need to have experienced the rest of the collection BEFORE you start the effects on this DVD)
What's in the box? DVD only
Key points: A collection of mind-blowing card magic that you can perform with ANY borrowed deck. NO SETUPS. NO PROPS. NO GAFFS.
How are the production values: Big Blind Media is wonderful, great shots, well edited and laid out with navigatable menus.
Is it well taught: Cameron Francis is someone I really like, really like their effects, and the best part is, his teaching is amazing, you will know exactly what to do
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked): this is a great collection of impromptu magic with any deck. You don't need a sharpie, billets, business cards or any other props. This is a skill people. Lots of real world, very practical workers.
My advice, if this is a DVD you might want to pick up, save your pennies and get the Essential Card Magic Tool Box
Overall score: 10/10
