The Incomparable Tommy Wonder filmed at the British Close-Up Magic Symposium . . . now on DVD!

Tommy Wonder was one of the world's finest performers and magical thinkers, and this video captures some of his best close-up work when he presented his lecture at the British Close-Up Magic Symposium. Shot with two broadcast cameras. A must for any magician!

Tommy performs and then explains in detail the following effects:

Thanks to Paul Harris - Tommy's handling of the classic Paul Harris single torn and restored card in which the fourth piece appears to restore as well!

Lighter to Matchbox - One of the most visual table-hopping intro tricks. A Bic lighter instantly changes to a box of matches!

The Shrinking Box - Two versions of the shrinking card case. Very practical construction, easy to use.

Ambitious Card Routine - A clean and effective version leading to Card to Box, in which the signed card ends up folded inside a miniature hinged box on the table.

2-Second Card Fold - A detailed exposé of Tommy's lightning quick three-way card fold.

Squeeze - the brilliant illusion of a full deck being visibly squeezed into a tiny card box.

Deck Switch - Psychologically strong and easy to do.

Tommy also provides advice on performing close-up magic. He shares his thoughts on timing, misdirection,presentation and a whole host of other aspects of the magical art - truly fascinating!

Running Time Approximately 55min

I didn't buy this from Penguin it was the first vhs magic tape i ever bought. It was years and years ago. I didn't know who Tommy Wonder was i just bought it and it was the best money i ever spent. He's truly wonderful!! What he says is right. The quailty is not the best, but it was a vhs tape and not a dvd. I learned a lot from him because of this tape. It's not for a beginer, but when i bought it i was one. I'm better now. Even if you're new to magic i say buy this. Just listen to what he has to say. It's well worth the price of the dvd. He truly had class. He will be missed and always loved.

If you are a fan of strong magic or the magic of the amazing Tommy wonder you will want this DVD. I have had it for years and there is some very good information and tricks performed by Tommy Wonder that will knock you out. The Ambitious card routine adn the card ending up in the ring box is a classic of Tommy Wonder and worth the price of the DVD. There are a few techniques that I foud were not explained well or it was assumed that the spectator knew the technique. This is the only down side to this DVD everything else is well worth the money on this one. Add to cart.
