This is a lifetime of information, acquired the hard way.
Mechanic is taught by a man who walked a fine line between death and a payday every time he picked up a deck of cards. When each move could be the difference between a five thousand dollar haul and broken ribs, you get good at using techniques proven to work... techniques that will remain undiscovered at any card table.
This DVD set is a treatise on the techniques used by Daniel Madison to put food on his table for years, as a professional card cheat caught up in the underground circles of London's criminal underbelly.
Every day and every dollar made it harder to get out of the racket he fell into - until a simple slip at the table took the decision out of his hands - and nearly cost him his life.
During the weeks in hospital Madison made the conscious decision to shift from card mechanic to Deception Artist. Now a reformed card cheat, Daniel meticulously teaches the handling, dexterity and psychology of deception with playing cards, step by step.
Over two hours of invaluable advice, theory and method taught by a man in the unique position to have lived the life, each move seized from the cold school of experience.
Daniel learned the hard way so you don't have to. Add Mechanic to your cart NOW and benefit from his hard won experience.
Disclaimer: This is not a DVD on Card Tricks. This is detailed teaching of the actual skills used to illegally and unethically win money in illicit card games through the use of cheating. As study of this material has the potential to turn you into a successful card cheat, we must ask that any use of these techniques at the card table be for entertainment purposes only. Neither Daniel Madison nor Ellusionist can be held responsible for the consequences of cheating or unlawful gambling.
This is in my opinion the best video on Ellusionist. The reason being is what is taught on it. There is one move in particular that I feel is worth the price alone. That move is a deck switch. I have looked all over for ways to do a deck switch that looks natural and requires little to no misdirection that also requires sleight of hand(if performed right). Also I was surprised by how the moves were just right balance of challenging and engrossing.Overall this is a great series of videos.Although not all of the moves are applicable at the card table almost all of the moves if it not all of them are applicable for Magicians. 5/5 *s
Great collection of card sleights taught in great detail by Daniel Madison. This download was well worth the price!
Mechanic will teach a number of sleights in extraordinary detail. Daniel Madison is a very good teacher, and all the sleights are extremely clever and should come to you very quickly. In some ways I wish the DVD taught some more tricks but all in all it is a very worthy purchase.
