Cardistry Series - Stone Mason - Cowboys
I am Daniel Madison and this is my Cardistry series.
Over the coming weeks I'll be releasing a few downloads at a time from my cardistry repertoire. These are what I consider to be my personal signature flourishes and the only flourishes that I use to this day.
Expect aerial flourishes, revelations, simple and very difficult moves, all performed at Alcatraz and taught in precise detail at the Ellusionist HQ in San Francisco.

SummaryGreat for experienced cardists but the lack of vocal explanations leaves something to be desired for the average performer. They are some excellent flourishes though.
SummaryThe flourishes are great, and if you are willing you can learn them easy enough. The problem for me is that he doesn't teach them verbally, which is why this gets a 4 star instead of 5. For each flourish, there is a 15 second preface, and then you watch Daniel do it in slow motion twice for each flourish. It is very hard to follow at first, and you must keep pausing and unpausing while balancing cards in your hands. And there are little flourishes within these two flourishes that he spends no time on. I hope next time he breaks it down step by step and finger by finger. Then I will be learning from Daniel, not copying him in slow motion.
SummaryI thought that explanations were explained all the video does is show slow motion of D.M. Doing the flourishes. That being said if you are experienced enough to pick up on the subtleties of his moves these very hard moves can be very visually stunning. Great flourishes, not great explanations.
