Air Bender: a selected card is fairly selected and lost in the pack. In a physics-bending display of skill, the performer balances a deck of cards on its thin edge, and, with nothing but a quick jet of air emitted from the mouth, slices it in two. The packets fall to the table, revealing the selection.
Ascaniesque: a graceful one-handed spread of cards, elegantly dropping 4 seemingly single cards to the table, while a fifth is concealed amongst them.
Asteroid Change: a visual color change in the spectator's hand the likes of which have never before been seen with sleight of hand.
Booster Gold: a visual color change you'll swear uses a flap.
B/T Change: a silky smooth visual color change with a modern remix.
Double Change: a beautifully choreographed visual color change of two cards.
DropSplit: a stunning blendo from the mind of Chris Stanislas, taught here in memoriam.
Fireweed: the cards are bridged after a riffle shuffle, and four kings bloom from the pack as if they were petals from a flower. In a quick turn of events, they change into four aces.
Hofzinser Mod: a slick new spin on an age-old force.
Oh Snap Change: a classic change with almost no cover.
PopSwipe: two cards appear in a split second as if plucked from midair.
Propaine: a vanish of a card in a sandwich that will make you do a double take.
Skywalker Flip: any desired cards flip face-up in the middle of a simple card spring.
StaticShock: a collectors routine on steroids that has to be seen to be believed.
S Classic Force: learn Simon's takes on the best force within the realm of sleight of hand. Never let anyone tell you it's not 100%.
DPS Production: a silly card production that is surprisingly eye-popping.
Tilt-a-Whirl: an insane color change of one card held at the fingertips. The mechanics are almost too much fun.

SummaryNeeded an over the shoulder camera angle! It was hard at times to follow and i needed to watch bt change about 20 times before i got it. Still 4 stars as great value for money but be prepared for some knacky moves that you will initially think impossible. Also Drop split/ double change is incredibly satisfying to perform and looks/ feels great.
SummaryHonestly you should buy this for the dry humour, nevermind the magic, Simon's personality makes the whole download so much more enjoyable. That being said, it is a magic tutorial download and a very good one at that, each of the moves are taught very well, Simon has a really nice way of teaching, using precise and simple language, and if you are more of an aural learner this will be a godsend to you. The camera angles are a bit rubbish now and again but you can still make out what's going on, and Simon explains everything in words anyway so it's not a major problem. For the most part you can see everything perfectly fine anyway. All in all, 100% worth $15, if you follow Simon on Instagram you know he has some great stuff, definitely recommend buying it.
SummaryUnfortunately I'm pretty disappointed with this.
The tricks/moves are all good but I find a lot of it pretty hard to learn for two reasons.
1, A lot of the tricks are missing a performance video.
Even though he begins with saying that we've just seen the performance of a trick, there is no video to see. So even though he shows us how to do it I'm not sure what it's actually supposed to look like.
2. There's just one camera filming from straight ahead.
A lot of times it's really hard to see what he's actually doing with his hands. The camera is so low that sometimes it's impossible to see. And when he turns to the side to make it easier to see he instead covers everything even more with his hands.
I'm not sure they've actually looked at it themselves after they filmed it.
SummaryAll I can say is must have. honest about everything he shows funny must have
SummaryLet me just begin by this is not a download for beginners. Most of the moves taught here are on a intermediate and complex level. That being said, the sleights are fun to practice and Simon teaches the moves step by step in detail in a really humorous way which makes the video intriguing. $15 for 90 minutes of instructions including 17 effects is a bargain. I am very happy with my purchase. Simon nailed it on this one. Great stuff, Ellusionist.
SummaryLoved all the sleights and moves, my only complaint is that there was only a frontal shot of the video and it would have been nice to see an over-the-shoulder camera and some angles
SummaryProject S is an incredible set of tricks at a very reasonable price. Every trick so far has been worth practicing and had kept me pretty busy. Looking forward to their next release.
SummaryGreat buy! I've purchased dozens of videos and products from ellusionist and they never disappoint. OSYN is one such buy that I've had a lot of fun with. I like the slightly more complex tricks that leave people scratching their heads for days. So far I've only been using one of the tricks as it seems to have the greatest effect but my only complaint is for the price it can be a little much. I'm not saying it should be dirt cheap but $25-30 seems like a more fair price. Nevertheless, great trick to perform
SummaryThis is amazing I love the challenge of learning these sleights but the angles he is teaching are a bit hard he is a little far away but it's totally worth it!!!! A must buy.
SummaryAh man. This is good!
This is for move monkeys who love to practice and push their card handling abilities to the limits. The stuff is mostly not easy, but thats the fun part for me!
