Wayne Houchin's Art of Magic is a groundbreaking instructional DVD on classic and contemporary magic tricks. This 120 minute - performance and instructional DVD features a unique look at the current state of magic. Including interviews with David Regal, Aaron Fisher, Dan and Dave Buck and (of course) Wayne Houchin. The interviews are combined with live performance footage of WH performing both on the street and at The Magic Castle - from South Beach, Miami to Hollywood, California.

WHAT'S ON THE DVD?

- A 60 minute documentary on the Art of Magic featuring David Regal, Aaron Fisher, Dan & Dave, and WH.

- An in-depth 60 minute teaching session during which Wayne Houchin explains how to perform 5 of the effects that were featured in the documentary. You will learn:

TWISTING THE ACES - Wayne Houchin's handling of Dai Vernon's classic effect. The four aces magically turn face up one at a time. Clean, beautiful, and amazing.

FRENCH KISS - You ask someone to sign a playing card - the card is then folded up and placed in your spectator's mouth. You take and sign another card - which you then fold up and place in your mouth. Impossibly, the 2 folded up cards switch places. Your signed signed card is in the spectator's mouth and her card is in yours. Simple and powerful.

WH RING+STRING MYSTERY - A piece of string visually penetrates through a borrowed ring. New, unique, practical, and FUN.

MATCH BITE - A lit match is extinguished on your tongue. The magician then bites off the burnt end, chews it up, and spits it back onto the match. Impromptu and uses only one match.

CARBON PAPER - An incredibly powerful effect contributed to AOM by Jay Sankey. The back of a playing card is burned - your spectator FEELS the burn from that card travel through their hand and end up on a signed card that has been between their hands for the entire effect... leaving the originally burnt card completely unharmed. Performed and taught by Wayne Houchin.

The documentary and instructional portions of this DVD attempt to capture a modern look at the Art of Magic through personal anecdotes, advice, and live performance. The interviews touch on everything from the presentation of magic to advice for beginners, and why magician's fail. The effects taught are practical and suitable for both beginners and the intermediate student. Welcome to Art Of Magic.

Wayne at his best Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
After seeing so many great one-trick DVDs from Wayne, it was refreshing to see his first attempt at a multi-trick DVD. And boy, it is AWESOME. The DVD sports a very modern look, and it is one of the best multi-trick DVDs I have ever seen in terms of style and choreography. This is not to mention the excellent material that is contained within this video. Wayne is one of the best magic teachers on video, and everything is crystal clear and taught in full detail. I love that Wayne also includes interviews with some of the big names in magic such as Dan and Dave and Aaron Fisher. I absolutely love David Regal's interview, and I think the interviews overall added great value to the DVD.

Well worth it only 5 tricks but well worth it. Specially the new and slightly different handling of Jay Sankeys Carbon Paper, just amazing great for bar magic. And French Kiss this is just a reputation maker for sure.

This is a great DVD. The tricks are brilliant but really the best thing about this DVD is the production quality and Wayne's passion for magic. It's quite easy to watch this DVD as if it were a TV magic special. Worth checking out.

Wayne's version of The Professor's Twisting The Aces is the best I've seen.

The magic on this DVD will elicit very strong reactions from your audience!

Wayne Houchin is one of my favorite and most inspirational performers out there!

I really enjoyed this DVD and you will too ! If your really serious about Magic and ready to take another step forward, buy this DVD a lot of great material on here guys. Not to mention the effects he shows you are hard hitters, especially my favorite, FRENCH KISS (Specifically for female specs ;) )
