Magic reviews by Will Dryer
These following reviews were submitted to Vanishing Inc. by Will Dryer:
The Treachery of Tricks DVD
The theory here is brilliant & thoroughly taught too; would heartedly recommend this to anyone devising an act.
You know that trick you do again & again, if someone says do a trick this is the first one that comes to mind because you know can concentrate on the performance and knock 'em dead every time,
Well this is mine!!
Blind Square magic download (video)
These are probably Bizau's greatest creations but he also had loads more ideas which he posts on his 365 hours project, if you like the look of these moves be sure to check it out!
PM Card Mark System magic download (ebook)
The marking system is the quickest to apply and amongst the easiest to read. I marked my deck in about five minutes, which made the book a lot of fun to read through with cards in hand.
I sense that this is a lesser known ebook too, so I can really imagine this flying by magician friends too. The ebook is well written and makes the process of marking a deck and learning the tricks very easy.
The fact that I could read this on my iPad made the whole experience much more fun. Kudos to everyone involved!
The Cooler accessory
It can use any (Poker-sized) deck, it can be used in many performance situations and it is a perfect, seamless switch. What's not to like?!
Card Artistry trick
I ordered this as soon as I saw the Soldier's Deck video on YouTube. What a great performer! Justin--you are an inspiration! I'll definitely be using this trick in my shows!
The Nine of Diamonds book
So this just arrived from you guys and I have to say...I'm very, very impressed. My interest is cards and I like to find amazing magic I can actually do. I found three tricks right away that will go into my repertoire.
Allan Ackerman A Material DVD
FINALLY...I have very fond memories of seeing Allan do magic for me for hours in Las Vegas. It was one of the most amazing experiences I've had in magic. He is a wise, kind man, and I can't wait to see this.
Hand-Picked Astonishments: Card Forces DVD
I love Joshua Jay's teaching style, and this was absolutely great. The tricks he uses to illustrate the forces are spectacular, and I'm going to be trying ALL of them out. This is what happens when Joshua Jay and Paul Harris work together? I can't wait for more!
Card Artistry 2 trick
I was a big fan of Card Artistry 1, but this one is even better. I bought all three cards as I can see myself using them for different situations. Yet another golden Vanishing Inc release!!
This just came in. So, so smart. It isn't what you would expect, and I love how surefire it is. I am putting together a mentalism show and this will be used to capture a thought of drawing.
Confident Deceptions book
I have just completed my first read-through of Jason's book. It's pretty much all I've been doing since it arrived the other day. This kid (I say kid because I'm twice his age) is absolutely brilliant. He gets it, and the material is staggering. These routines are lengthy, but they are also smart, and keep the audience focused on the magic.
I was lucky enough to get an early copy of this, and I'm here to say it's my new favorite trick. EXCEPTIONAL, and gets a great reaction.
