Darwin Ortiz is a rare combination of technician, creator, thinker, and performer. Darwin's sleight-of-hand skills, combined with his knowledge of gambling scams, have led to his consulting for gambling casinos in a dozen countries. His books on card magic are considered modern classics as are Strong Magic and Designing Miracles, his two best-selling books on magic theory. As a performer, Darwin has worked for numerous Fortune 500 companies, colleges and universities throughout the country, in addition to both the Bush and Obama inaugurals. He has also appeared on numerous television shows and even on stage in a two-man show with David Roth.

In this landmark DVD series, Darwin performs the most stunning effects from his legendary repertoire - all newly shot in stunning digital clarity - for a very enthusiastic audience. You'll first see Darwin perform a complete show (a lesson in itself on how to routine card magic to create an immersive and entertaining experience!) Then, after the show is over and the audience has gone home, Darwin teaches his diabolical methods in meticulous detail so that you can add these amazing effects to your own repertoire. What's more, you'll also be treated to some of Darwin's theories on magic and its performance - sage words from one of its most thoughtful practitioners.

Darwin Ortiz had a very simple goal with this DVD set, one you'll most certainly agree that he's achieved - nothing but the best!

Volume 1

The Vegas Shuffle -
A progressively more impossible, three-phase gambling routine that even non-card players will enjoy.

The Psychotronic Card - First you perform one of the most astonishing and convincing vanishes ever of a selected card. Then the card is found in the spectator's own hands!

Four To One - One card becomes four; four cards become one. One of the strongest transpositions in card magic, and it happens under the spectator's hand!

The Unholy Three - It starts as an amazing three-card location and it ends with one of the most powerful surprise kickers in card magic.

Museum Piece - A true work of art-magically, aesthetically, and presentationally.

Test Your Luck - An impossible coincidence, and the spectator does it all.

Best Of The Best (performance only) - A tour-de-force demonstration of incredible gambling skills, both physical and mental.

Theory - One of magic's greatest thinkers offers his insights on three of the most important subjects in magic: The Magical Experience, The Audience is Not the Enemy, and Meaning.

Running Time Approximately: 2hr 26min

Darwin Ortiz is a wizard with cards! Most people who have heard anything about him probably know this already. This set of DVDs is a great compilation of some extremely powerful, mind blowing effects. If you don't know how they're done beforehand, the performances will make your jaw drop. I also really enjoyed the theory segments, where Darwin talks about different aspects of magic and performance. All this being said, if you are not already an extremely proficient card handler, many of these effects will be too demanding for you, save for a couple. On the other hand, they will give you something to shoot for and will give you insight into how a master card manipulator thinks and operates. Fantastic stuff for the already skilled card magician, and plenty of food for thought for the beginner!
