Customer reviews for Double Lift Workshop
Double lift is the very first basic technique that every magicians must know. But don't underestimate this sleight, even if you think you already know how to do a double lift. For me, I noticed myself that when I try to do double lift and when I do normal lift, the movement of my hand and fingers are different. Even if I have never been caught doing the double lift, but I realized that something need to be fixed. Doing the double lift that can deceive layman is easy, but to deceive magicians is very difficult. And since this is the most basic sleight of card magic, so I decided to make it most close to perfect as I could. And I found that this tutorial provides me exactly what I needed.
In this tutorial, there are several ways to do double lift. Some methods don't require any break beforehand, and these are very natural ways to do the sleight. Another methods might require a break, but the lift look so impossible to be 2 cards. Others are also nice, and fun to practice. Finally, Paul Wilson also added a bonus trick which require a lot of double lift, very good for practicing the sleight. And the effect is also great.
I have learned more from this video than any other magic video out there. This is truly a wealth of information for an outstanding price; it is worth at least 5 times more. Thank you Paul Wilson for sharing this with us and thank you Dan and Dave for making it available.
I got this video when I started out in magic. I knew that mastering a great double lift is one of the main basics in card magic. This video was a life saver for me. Paul also gives references so that anyone can look up the sleight and have a better understanding of it.
