These are tricks professional magicians respect and love, but they're easy enough a new magician can truly master them.

Great Beginnings Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
The trick selection on the DVD looked very basic. I was very disappointed. I mean, Magician's Force? Come on, that's not even a trick, it's a method. Force and Reveal? Coin From Ear? Pretty lame tricks.

However, I thoroughly enjoyed the DVD. Without a doubt, a lot of this material will be used by me. The routines are effective and the performance video's prove it. It really reminded me how these simple effects can be so effective with the right routine.

I would say the format is trick, explanation, street/restaurant performance, and short essays. The first essay is "What is Magic?" There is one on over coming nervousness, how to handle "touchy" spectators and how to handle a heckler. Oz explains what magic is and what it is not. Perlman goes over what can go wrong and how to recover, angles, exposed views, patter, timing, misdirection and a lot more.

To say there are 12 tricks is short-selling the material. There are multiple presentations for many of the effects including advanced handling sections. You're getting a lot of really good routines and a lot of additional information. Sure some of these effects are in Mark Wilson's Complete Course In Magic (MWCCIM) but the level of detail is superior (in my opinion) than in MWCCIM. You get to see a real magician, perform the effect to real spectators. In MWCCIM, not so much.

Does MWCCIM have more material? No comparison, of course it does. But this is a great magic primer with really good material. I don't think a beginner (or anyone) could go wrong. And at the price of "free" I had a great time watching it.

I think so too... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2010
This is the best beginner DVD alright, I got it not too long ago so it wasn't really for me as the material is quite basic but if a beginner asked me what would be the best first DVD for them self I would defiantly recommend this! The material is great because it focuses on magic with different props and the effects are strong so when you get those good reactions it gives you a boost of confidence as well!

Though it is for beginners, there are a lot of useful stuff for all levels. His tips on how to do magicianĀ“s choice is worth the price of the dvd alone.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I got this as a promotion but I would've gladly paid for this because it has some amazing effects in it that are sure to get some amazing reactions with. The teaching is great and there's no need for you to re-watch it again and again to figure out what he's saying.

Lives up the title. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This DVD really does live up to it's name.

I have got to say this DVD is perfect! Even someone like me who has been performing magic for 6 years or more can learn something new.

This DVD taught me things I never knew, plus it's a great tool to give to those younger magicians who want to know how to do tricks.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
ok now to begin i will tell you that i got this dvd when it was on promotion for free. now knowing that info here are my thoughts. first its taught by oz so you know its top notch in tha respect. although i enjoyed this dvd and the effects since im not a true beginner i already knew most of the effects but like i said for a beginner this will give you a great base of tricks to build off of. i also recomend born to perform by oz pearlman. both are great beginner dvds.

I got this free Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 31st, 2011
It came included in some other things I purchased, so I watched it, and I'm pretty impressed. It's certainly a beginner DVD, but then that's what it was meant to be. I especially like the concept of teaching Jessie to do the effects, as it's a good method of relaying the information to the type of beginner for whom this DVD was meant.

If you're new, or know someone who is, I would definitely recommend this DVD. I think of it as a video companion to most beginner magic books such as Joshua Jay's "Magic". It would go well with that type of illustration.

I would have given it 5 stars, except I tend to believe that beginner's should be subjected to a bit more hard-hitting material than is usually included in beginner type literature and instruction. There are some very strong effects out there that never make it into beginner instruction, even though they are extremely simple to perform well.
