Essential Sleights Every Serious Magician Should Know Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 14th, 2011
This DVD is filled with practical sleights that the real workers will actually use in the real world. It's very strange that the DVD is completely silent and set to music, but the material that is contained within is very strong. My only criticism is that the sleights are taught with really no context...in other words you won't learn any actual routines/tricks on the DVD just sleights. I think it can be hard for someone who is not as familiar with magic to take this DVD and create their own tricks if this is their only frame of reference...but all in all, if you are more experienced, I think you will get a lot from this DVD.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

This DVD has nothing but solid sleight of hand magic. Learning all the material on this DVD will definitely make you a better magician.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
There are 22 general card/coin sleights. In the category of card magic, there are 4 color changes, 5 forces, and 3 flourishes. Besides that there are 4 object vanishes, a pen and coin routine, a ring trick, a bill switch, and a coin flourish. Essentials like the Erdnase Color Change, the Double Lift, the French Drop, and the Pass are among the 45.
The best thing about the DVD is that it isnt packed with filler. Its just effect after effect. All the material is usable, and I would call more than half the effects top notch.

Jay Sankey has put out a really good DVD here. 45 contains a lot of stuff, and a lot of stuff that you will use. Like many magic DVDs and books, there is a bunch of stuff that you probably won't use but for the amount that you will, it is well worth the price of the DVD. A lot of the stuff on the DVD can be done by beginners so it is a great purchase for all magicians. Thanks Sankey.

Hi. This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.
This DVD is actually a surprise to me how much I like it! The fact is, at first glance I would think this was a silly and ineffective way to produce a DVD (being totally silent). Also, being that although I appreciate Sankey's work, I've not always been a fan of all that he's done, I would have thought this DVD to be a bad choice for me. On the contrary, I really enjoyed the DVD and learned a lot from it.
It is a little weird being taught 45 magic tricks without a single word being spoken, but Sankey does a great job with this. He shows the tricks as how they look to an audience and then shows you the exposed views, at times going over the effect several times so you can get a full understanding of it. I would say he does a better job here teaching silently than many DVDs teach with words!
I still think DVDs like David Stone's Real Secrets of Magic Set do a better job of presenting and teaching effects than 45, but Sankey doesn't do a bad job. The DVD can get downright goofy-weird at times, but that's to be expected with Sankey. All in all, I'm pleased with this purchase!
Actually very good. Report this review

The thing about Jay Sankey is that he uses a certain number of sleights but milks them for all they're worth to produce quite varied effects. So I was a bit unsure about getting this DVD because I thought the sleights would be limited, however I was pleasantly surprised to see a great variety and even some things I didn't expect (such as the classic pass).
It is great! Report this review

It has great camera angles, and I really loved how he would perform them in different places every time. Now, why it only got 4 stars was that it had parts of the music with parts that I couldn't hear. For that reason, I fell asleep while watching. Also, some of the effects do need a bit more explanation. Overall this is a great DVD though. It comes with mini routines that you can combine and make into impromptu performances. Don't let the music and the few not well explained slights drive you away! Buy this now!

This is a good DVD....all the sleights are very useful....you can use them to create your own tricks....and they will make you a better magician...
What I also liked about it is the music....I like the trippy music with all it's weird sounds...It's my kind of style...
The DVD is very good...very cheap...and you will use a lot of stuff if you get it...I recommend you getting it...so add to cart!!
good tricks and sleights Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 15th, 2006
This is a great DVD, packed full of great sleights and quick tricks. Only con is that some of them are not well explained, I know it's a no dialogue DVD, but they could have repeated the explanation in slow motion or something a few more times. But overall, it's great!
I reccommend it alot.

This is a good dvd. There is no talking, but you learn everything well. He teaches you some cool stuff taht is good to practice, a lot of few second tricks in the dvd, and slights. No effects, but the DVD is nice and i like it.
45 of the Best!!!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 9th, 2006
This DVD is my first DVD from Jay Sankey and I have to say that I am thrilled to have purchased it. There is some great stuff, from essential card sleights to some pretty cool coin vanishes, this is the best mixture of tricks with cards, coins, rocks, pencils, rubber bands, bills, and even one with a cigarette (substitutable for a pencil, I'm sure). Nothing is extremely difficult, but some moves will take practice, and you know what they say about practice. Mostly cards and coins. The fact that there is no speaking doesn't change the quality of the explanations. The camera work is incredible. If you think about it, it makes sense to have a DVD like this, because when was the last time a DVD covered 45 sleights in under an hour?!? Recommended for all magicians looking for a variety of relatively easy but cleverly amazing material. This is a great way for beginners to expand their knowledge, no matter what language you speak. One of my best purchases from penguin so far.
