the person you are referring to is Jeff McBride. to the best of my knowledge, he hasn't released it yet, i have looked, and have been unsuccessful, but if you find something let me know

I highly doubt you will find a source you're looking for. To the best of my knowledge, no such source exists.

Well... they might learn the material directly from other magicians and/or make the props themselves. Or the items may be available exclusively via contact with the creator, which might only be possible through a very small network of professionals. There are some magicians who still believe in the value of keeping magical secrets secret.

Most of the truly original magic out there is not commercially available. There was time when this could be said of most professional-grade magic in general... a time when a piece of magic was not released for sale on the Internet hours after it was first performed on TV... a time when the growth and development of magic was driven by creativity and originality rather than by commercialism. Sadly, that time has passed.

Ever thought that maybe they took the time to come up with their own way of doing it and make their own props?

You can't possibly find any face change or in Chinese, Bian Lian, these are the Chinese's most guarded secret. They won't teach them to anybody. These skills are only pass down from generation to generation, usually to eldest son, not being passed down to girls.

Before that i heard that andy lau was going to learn it for 100 grand USD.

BUt if u see them change closely, u could see how they do it. Especially when the part the change until become their real face, that moment you can see how it is done.

PS: Note the hand movement.

SOme people can even appear back on, from real face to masked face, Most extreme level.. ^^

GOod luck to you all My friend.. Au revoir..

There are several Asian magicians that perform Bian Lian. One of the mosted noted ones in the US is Jeff McBride... but his form is a little more new age and Americanized... I am fairly certain that it is not reflective of the actual form. However, Alex Tan (Alex the Magician) and Pinky Loo (a really hot Asian chick) perform incredible effects with the Bian Lian.

Just the fact that you said, "some other guy" and, "I'm on youtube 24/7" says everythin I need to know about you. That "other guy" has more talent in his pube than Crissy can even "BELIEVE" in!!! :evil: :evil: :evil:
