Total waste of money! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 22nd, 2013
I was very excited to receive this DVD, but after watching it, I must say now, I am very disappointed. Almost all the methods are very old, and have been improved over the years by other magician. I could not find any text on screen at all, so it was not possible to know what was said on the one part there was speaking in Korean.

If you want know how things are done, and that is all, buy the DVD. If want to be able to perform the effects yourself, forget it. Gimmicks are shown and how they are used, but nothing is explained how to make any of the gimmick except a flap card which is a take on the old "Acrobatic Card" from the 1970's.

Terribly over priced, for not getting any good information. Save your money for something you can actually do after the instructions.

Not a system Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 22nd, 2013
I hesitated in buying this "System" because of the cost. I should have waited or passed on it altogether. For $60 there isn't much there. If you are new to m agic and what you see in the trailer intrigues you, I would still be hesitant in making the purchase. There is no system presented on the DVD. There are no spoken words, at least not in English, to explain what to do. The video is clear in what is need to be done in order to accomplish the effect but again, very little of it is innovative or new. I guess I saw the price and thought there would be more included, routine ideas, etc. But you only get brief video demonstrations of what to do to create the effect. For some it may be enough, for me, I'm afraid not. I don't do reviews and this has got to be the worst spending of $60.

Again, torn between good material and bad production Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2013
Worth the money? For sure.
There are some wonderful things on here and if the topic interests you, you'll find a lot of useful material.

However, the DVD is built up of very short sections. Quick performance. Quick explanation. And no "play all" option that I'm aware of. It's been taking me more time to navigate between each section than to actually watch each section.
Very frustrating.

It's another one of those "silent" lessons, which is upsetting. Watching Ponta teach silently is one thing -- you see the action, you mimic the action. Not perfect, but acceptable. Here though, there are devices in play, and the explanation of the devices is pretty much done by pointing at them.

This isn't so much an artist system as it is a peek at various systems used by... artists. Here's one application for a magnet. Here's one application for a topit (and I still have NO clue what his topit looks like or how it's setup in his jacket)

There is no "discussion" of how to routine this various principles together, how to retrieve a load, etc. (There's a brilliant piece with a silk and elastic... where does he retrieve it from? Does he walk on with it?)

Cool Ideas Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 20th, 2014
This DVD is NOT for some quick ideas to throw together or for complete you routines that you'll be able to do. The material definitely requires your originality to mix into your current manipulation routines, but if there are ideas you like in the trailer, then that's what you get. There are a mix of a old ideas and ideas that at least I haven't seen before. No, there isn't any spoken instruction, yes there are a few gimmicks that you would need to make or purchase so again, this probably isn't something for the light hobbyist. I'm glad I picked this up though!

Artist System by Lukas Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 2nd, 2014
I knew that the techniques used on this DVD would be way out of my league, but I just bought this so I could kick-back and watch some beautiful magic (fortunately, I got this in the 5 for $99 deal). The presentations ARE magical and inspirational, but I would have to agree with other reviews that it should have had a continuous 'Play-All' button. It was frustrating to go back to the menu again after each segment (which all ran very quickly). This DVD is not for beginners, but does have beautiful and artistic presentations which gave me ideas on presenting my own magic. Most of the tricks featured, however, I will probably never use----almost all of them require additional equipment.

very cool Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 13th, 2013
I read so many bad comments about this, that made me wanna buy it, im a skeptical! And I loved it. You do need get your hands dirty and make up some gimmicks, but creating your own makes it more especial I think. I could. Not be happier with this DVD.
Two thumbs up.

i love it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 13th, 2013
So many great ideas. You do need to get your hands dirty and make a few gimmicks but I really like the ideas. Something about crafting your own gimmicks that makes magic more especial. Two thumbs up.
( I almost wanted to give a bad review so nobody else buys it lol)

This is one of the best videos on modern manipulation I've seen. It's smoove and very clever. It's really thinking outside of the box, and I strongly feel that this video will take any serious manipulator act to the next level. Lukas stuff is awesome!!!!!

Overview of a lot of tools in one place Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2013
This DVD is great because it teach you about all the tools a magician needs in one place. every tools is explain by showing you how to use it with a sample routine. every thing is shown from the front then from an expose view like an over the shoulder shot which is great to understand everything.

I really like his explanation on how to use the topit with a closed jacket.

I didn't put five stars only because there is a couple of chapters (like the silk comparison) that is not in music like the others but where he talks in his native language and there is no subtitle. and also because you can't watch the DVD all at once. you have to watch every chapter individually because at the end of each chapter the DVD returns to the menu.
