The New York Coin guys, David ROTH, Dr. Michael RUBINSTEIN, and Mike GALLO, are back with a vengeance, with their latest set of DVD's!! Volumes, 14, 15, and 16, subtitled Methods, Performances, and Presentations, each contain 2 hours of the same, hard hitting, cutting edge coin magic, that have defined their prior offerings. Joining them in this venture are special guests Bob Fitch, Doug Brewer, and Jean Emmanuel Franzis, with contributions from Dan Watkins, Bill Citino, and guest host, Marc DeSouza.
Volume 14 sets the tone with thirteen jaw dropping coin routines. Dr. Michael Rubinstein showcases three routines that illustrate the use of the ever popular slide move. Sliding Wild Coin is a production, change and vanish, that will make you look like a sleight of hand master, but without the difficulty! Twilight Zone Wild Coin takes Rubinstein's classic patter and adapts it to a standup, walk around handling of this classic effect. The Blank Coin Routine combines ideas of Roth and Rubinstein for a very magical effect where the images of three different coins appear and vanish from the faces of blank coins!
Mike Gallo also releases some of his pet effects from his vast repetoire. Triple Penetration is a coins through the hand routine, with audience involvement. His Coins Across is an entertaining version where three silver coins join three chinese coins, the last one appearing in the hands of a spectator. O-Kort-O Box is a new coin box routine, with a "solid" ending!
David Roth performs and explains Purse Frame Production, using classic Roth technique. In Leipzig Coins to Glass , a signed coin finds its way into a glass covered by a deck of cards and a silk. Rounding out the trick section are contributions from Doug Brewer, Bill Citino, and Jean Emmanuel Franzis, with Bob Fitch finishing by teaching two of his favorite coin moves.
The bonus section is LOADED with material taken from the last coin seminar. Dr. Michael Rubinstein teaches some useful double faced coin moves. David Roth shows some unusual coin gimmicks from his vast collection. Mike Gallo performs and explains the soon to be classic Five Dimes Better. However, the highlight of this section, and worth more than the cost of the DVD alone, is the mini lecture by the legendary Bob Fitch, on Body Language, Movement and Space.
