Customer reviews for European Close-up Magic Symposium - Volume 1



Highlights of this download:

Roberto Giobbi's routine is strong and his explanation of the choreography is excellent.

The routine by Dani daOrtiz is a master-class in detailed thinking about chaos and control. As Dani puts it (I'm paraphrasing), "Every motion: where is my left hand, where is my right hand, who am I facing, what am I saying ... it is all under my control". This one routine is worth twice the cost of the download or more.

Henry Evans' Vertical Transposition is a wonderful (and easy) routine that will require some Arts and Crafts to construct the needed item.

Yves Carbonnier's version of Reset is very magical and incorporates some wonderfully convincing displays.

That's four excellent card routines. The other routines on the download are also strong but didn't grab me the way these did.
