Stage illusionists historically have been extremely secretive about their craft. Not just about the secrets to the illusions themselves-the mechanics are just a small part-but about the real secrets of what turns a stage illusion into a breathtaking moment of pure magic.

Now, for the first time ever on video, Jonathan and Charlotte Pendragon, the "First Couple" of magic and perhaps the greatest exponents of grand illusion ever to grace a stage, lift away the veil and show you the real secrets of stage illusion -the insider information that could only be gained by performing in over 50 countries for the last quarter of a century.

Pendragons DVD #1 Report this review

This is an excellent in depth discussion and analysis of the Hindu Sword Basket Illusion. This DVD changed my concept of the illusion and stimulated my thinking. I'm in the process of preparing the illusion for performing with a "real" wicker basket and "real" swords. I do not care for the fiberglass, plywood, or hardboard versions. Music is an important component of this presentation and that point was made apparent by watching the Pendragons perform.

The Pendragons are legends in the world of Grand Illusion. The information contained in this series is invaluable to anyone performing illusions. I've been in the business for well over 25 years now ... I wish I had these when I was just a kid! If your serious about performing illusions, you need to listen to a true master in the field. Highly recommended!
