This is an instructional card magic DVD featuring routines that have won Brian Tudor International recognition as one of the leading card manipulators in the world.
There are no camera tricks and everything is shown at actual speed.
Prepare yourself. You’re going to have to watch each explanation hundreds of times before you start to get it. You’ll have to practice even more before it looks good in your hands. In the process you’ll drop tens of thousands of cards. Throughout your training you’ll destroy five or more decks per day.
When Tudor performs, he just kinda does it. Like an Olympic athlete, he’s performing a routine that’s been practiced thousands of times leading up to this moment. When he’s on stage his mind goes to a place where individual moves become instinctual he doesn’t have to remember to do a Riffle Pass one moment and a Throw Change the next, any more than he has to remember to breathe or flex his heart muscle sixty times a minute. Sports psychologists have a word for this place-they call it THE ZONE.
If a stranger walked up to us and asked if we’d recommend this DVD, we’d say no. We’d say he’d probably hate it. We’d guess that he’s probably nowhere near skilled enough with cards, or devoted, or focused enough even to appreciate it. You have to earn this DVD. It’s not for everyone. It’s probably not for him, and it’s probably not for you.
But if you are one of the few who MUST be at the cutting edge in the development of visual card magic, there is nothing we can say to keep you away from this DVD. And that being said, this is probably your best resource for what’s new with cards.
Minimum recommended daily practice time: 4 hours.
