This is probably the best video I’ve bought from Ellusionist so far. I’ve only watched it once through and yet to learn it, but wanted to review now because of its quality.
First of all they go into the story of how they created the effect which I must say is inspiring, and they explain the process of a few years of shaping and honing the effect to perfection. It’s also inspiring because they aren’t seasoned magicians, they have just worked flippin’ hard to create a great effect, which is encouraging because if you’re like me dreaming of making a cool effect I sometimes think ‘I’m not exactly Daniel Madison what chance have I got?’ these guys give hope. I would say there is a section after Johannes explain the story that goes on a bit before the explanation, but nonetheless good to hear the story.
The effect and the teaching is killer, you can tell how solid and quality the effect is by their knowledge of it, after working on it for years. They give teaching on pretty much every situation you would be in for this effect and nothing is missed. As well, they give 5 or so examples of performance mistakes the have made to help you avoid them which is both helpful and pretty humble of them. The effect is also simple and you will be kicking yourself wishing you’d thought of it first.
A brilliant DVD and can’t wait to learn and perform it. Thank you and well done Mengel bro’s!
I bought this as a download, and before I could actually watch it I saw a video of some kid performing it on youtube... After that I was a bit disappointed, man now I know how to do it and I already spent the $$$... Then I watched the actual video instruction, yes I "knew" the secret, but I wouldn't have been able to actually perform it, nicely, without the actual instruction. Taught very well, with very high quality video. I would say buy it, but I would prefer to keep it to myself.... Good stuff.
PS Ellusionist has also been very awesome throughout my time shopping here. (Golf clap)
An amazing effect, not only visually, but also aurally. The combination of both really sells the illusion. I really enjoyed Mr Mengel's sincerity and attention to detail in his instruction. I also found the section on how the effect evolved from inception to final product most interesting, and really appreciate that being included. Nicely done!
