Close up Magic Vol 1 - Worlds Greatest Magic - Magic DVD





Picture the very best magic tricks, the greatest magicians, and the best producers all in one place, picture no more ... Think of acquiring the most comprehensive magic book ever written. This would certainly be a cherished possession for any magician with each chapter focusing on an one aspect of the craft and the very best magic tricks ever developed for it. That's the concept at the bottom of L&L Publishing's critically-acclaimed DVD collection, The World's Greatest Magic by The World's Greatest Magicians! Each volume is like an additional chapter in the world's best magic book. Featuring in-depth presentation and instruction on some of magic's most treasured and classic magic tricks by its most-talented practitioners, this unprecedented collection represents a vital reference work for anybody interested in the magical arts, regardless of their skill level.

Magicians who focus on close-up magic are constantly in search of material that does not use playing cards. Easily seventy-five percent of the magic that's been published over the last 50 or 60 years has been playing card magic of one type or another so quality non-card material is a relatively scarce commodity in the literature.

On this DVD, you'll be introduced to seven varied performers providing and teaching powerful close-up magic tricks that will amaze any spectators - and there's not a playing card in sight! The legendary Bruce Cervon launches off with a beautifully routined piece of magic where a borrowed handkerchief is clearly seen to be burned, magically repaired and then used for a stunning production.

Glen Falkenstein, of the famed mentalism team of Falkenstein & Willard, combines two simple and well-known dealer items to create a great hybrid of magic while Michael Ammar gives you all of the work on Stefan Schutzer's wonderful animated bill effect. Bob Read is next with a hilarious routine that will make you sorry you laughed so hard because you will be badly fooled by the magic trick's end. Mark Leveridge offers a classic and very magical coin box magic trick while Flip brings the mystery of the classic linking rings to a few safety pins. Finally, Bill Malone performs and teaches a stunning (and wonderfully portable!) Cups and Balls routine that will charm young and old alike.

It's been said that even the world's largest and most spectacular stage illusion can not create the impact - that feeling of pure astonishment - of a good, well-performed piece of close-up magic and on this DVD, you'll find seven compelling pieces of evidence to that effect.
