WHO'S AFRAID OF INVISIBLE THREAD? by Jon LeClair (DVD) You won't be afraid for long...this DVD will teach you everything.
Out of stock.
This is considered the definitive work on magic with invisible thread. If you have ever wanted to perform astounding magic where objects seem to move and float on their own this is your opportunity. Based on Jon LeClair's best-selling book "The Art of Invisible Thread," this program takes you on a candid outing where LeClair performs live for startled spectators in a restaurant. You are then taught how to perform everything. LeClair's techniques can be used at virtually anytime and in any situation -- they are the most practical methods for using invisible thread ever developed.

I loved this video, I have it on VHS, and highly recommend it. It's about time they put this on DVD! He also gives you his suggested source of invisible thread. Very talented, 5 Thumbs Up!

The only thing I didn't like about this (and why I buy DVD instead of VHS) is because it plays like a VHS (no fwd to next scene, menu, etc.)

You'll have to get used to using IT which is supplied but this is the funnest type of magic ever. Performing the whirling card is soooo cool, i do it to myself for fun. You'll fool yourself with this stuff because not even you can see the thread. That's OK because the Leclair animator is made so that you don't have to see it to know where it is. This DVD is the Born 2 Perform of Invisible thread magic. I love this stuff so much, if you wanna do invisy thread then look no further. After learning his routines all i wanna buy from penguin now are more levitation magic products. And his thread won't be seen in daylight either. I now realise that IT is perhaps the strongest magic out there because (as you see Leclair deomonstrating to his spectators) they have no idea how it can be done. I get people saying ''No way, it's magnetic'' you'd be surprised but most people don't know that IT even exists and the concept sounds impossible. Leclair always says ''It's gotta be magic, there's just no other explanation'' and my spectators think the same. The audience always know that cards and coins are just tricks and sleight but when using IT they think of it as pure magic. A BARGAIN!!!!

Invisible thread Report this review

I have always wanted to do a straightforward levitation of a bill without having to worry about lighting distances and angles with spectators. Invisible thread is the solution. I can't even see it when I'm performing it! So have no worries and buy this. Plus the dvd explains a whole lot of other great practical effects. Mindblowing.

I watched this one because I am a beginner with IT, I have even until now never used it before (still waiting for it to arrive). But as to the DVD: it's about an hour long and you get to learn the effects outlined in the add, fair enough. It starts with a performing-section, followed by the explanations. He even explains how to "harvest IT", so in the future I guess one didn't have to buy it anymore if one felt like doing the work (and no, he is not harvesting them from chinese caterpillars). There is nothing much too write, it's basically solid, LeClair a nice guy and don't expect someting fancy or funny during the instructional part, but this is the good thing: I compared his method to the method of the "floating dollar bill" as explained in the instructional video, and think his handling is much better. Can't write too much about it (exposure), I guess, just let me say "hook-up". I think it's so obviously superior, I'm thinking maybe it's copyrighted or someting.
All in all very convincing and the vid has sold me on the idea to give it a try, I actually didn't want to get involved with threads, just scared me, which I guess got addressed in the title of this video. LeClair uses one basic method to do all his tricks, so one does not have to learn many different concepts for different effects. It looked simple enough to roll with it. It lost one star because - and I am mainly guessing - in the meantime there are appearently more advanced props out there, reels and the like, which I can't judge due to inexperience, but it would be cool to learn how you can back off from objects and still have them floating, for example (which I know is possible). I think this vid has not exactly been recently shot.
A great start!!!! Report this review

If you are a thread worker then you must get this dvd it not only teaches you a few tricks but also the techniques of using thread so you can perfect your work...i use thread everyday and i bundled this with the new penguin pro thread reel,now i can make my thread routines "ultimate".
Best choices! Report this review

This DVD is one of the best choices if not the best for invisible thread. Purchase this one along with the invisible thread and the wax or putty. The way Leclair explains everything is very easy to understand and his method of using the invisible thread is very good. Buy this one! Dont forget the thread and the wax or putty you will need it. BUY NOW!
