This set is completely fantastic. I'm usually weary of buying a set as expensive as the EMC ones but I have never been let down. I actually own about 95% of everything Josh has published and I've been a big fan for almost a decade. When I was UNREAL was coming out, I knew I had to pick it up.

I'll try and skip most things that have been mentioned out there. You can find most within that ad copy etc, so I'll spare you of that. EMC is an awesome production company and quality is amazing.

I love magic… And I love learning new magic. I'm a person who spends a TON of time learning new magic, reading books, watching DVDs, YouTube performances etc. I also own a few of the other EMC box sets which are proudly displayed on my bookshelf.

Josh's DVD will be put with the items I reach for the most, a fairly small section that really inspires the way I think. Basically, this small section on my shelf is a reminder of my heroes within magic and how I would like to be seen and admired some day.

Jim Rohn once mentioned "You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." and that is how I treat this small section.

You begin the set with Josh's stage show which he describes in full detail. You can be a person who checks out the tricks but what really sets this DVD apart from others is how personal Josh is with picking the material he performs and the premise he selects. Hearing him discuss this is not only important but it's one of those things were "it clicks" and you find out the REALLY good stuff… The real secrets to how magic works and how to approach a performance.

The second disk is primarily parlor style magic which is performed within a coffee shop. These tricks are fantastic and really powerful but again, watching the interactions and the performances are really what make this DVD set worth every penny. Sherlock is something out of this world and really fantastic, Inferno is explained in full detail (how to even make everything yourself), coins to glass and a surprising piece… Trash to Treasure which is Josh's take on Wild Coin.

The third disk is close-up and displayed a really nice routine using both Prism and Phantom decks. It's a FULL routine that could easily set someone apart as a professional entertainer. It's smooth, well constructed and not difficult. The benefit? How far ahead you are from everyone else! Josh also updated his Blind Man's Bluff routine which REALLY caught me off guard knowing the previous versions.

The last disk focused on individual routines which are all great… Some of them are close-up show pieces and could really play nicely in a larger group such as Diamond Cut. There is also a section on this DVD with EXTENSIVE work on the Bluff Shift which are really great, if you are unfamiliar with the move this would be a wonderful way to become acquainted… you will use some of the ideas here.

Personally however, I think the best part of this DVD is the interview. I 100% think, this whole set was worth that alone. You really hear some of Josh's little tips which make a big difference in how you think about magic and how you will perform. There is even a section within the interview on how Josh keeps his notebook which is not only smart but something I will probably employ soon.

I cannot talk highly enough about the set and how much this has made clear for me. Josh is a wonderful, likable and smart performer who leaves no stone unturned. You cannot go wrong by picking this up.

--------------------

We, within the magic industry, are in a rough spot… We buy methods but so rarely find advice on how to perform properly, how to think and respect magic. This, along with the other EMC products, are a big step forward.

Thanks Joshua Jay for releasing some amazing work. I'm proud to have this on my shelf.

We all know that EMC has one of the top production qualities of all the magic producers and this is no different! Top quality filming, editing and the overal box set you receive it lovely!

Watching Joshua Jay perform is just brilliant. Not only did I learn some brilliant, easy, hard hitting effects, but also I learned so much on how to perform and present myself to make a piece of magic really entertaining.

You get to watch Joshua perform all the effects first for a live audience so you can see how great the reactions are and then he clearly goes through the effect and how you can do it with very little pre-work for most of the effects.

Overall I highly reccomend this. It seems like a lot, but tricks can cost about $30 each these days and so Raines those arn't real workers! In this set you receive so many effects including one of my favourites Hitchcock!
10/10 I highly recommend this!

I picked this up as soon as it was released. I can't stand any of the "downloads" I want to hold my purchase in my hands! Josh of course is at the top of his game on this set of DVDs. There is so much usable material included ... it's incredible. The footage is studio quality and the effects covered are explained in great detail.

Josh is by far one of the most entertaining performers in magic right now. This kid kills me, as I've said many times ... some have all the talent. Highly Recommended!

Unreal Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 26th, 2015
"Unreal By Joshua Jay" is yet another great set of DVD's from Louis De Matos and his team!

Joshua Jay is a very likeable performer who has very clever ideas. Even if your not a "card technician" still consider buying these DVDs as some of Josh's material relies on clever set ups and gimmicked cards rather than complicated sleight of hand moves.

I'm really happy with this purchase :)
