LAP, BY JUAN TAMARIZ, YANN FRISCH, AND DANI DAORTIZ, INCLUDES FIVE DISCS WITH MORE THAN TEN HOURS -- IT IS ONE OF THE MOST COMPLETE WORKS ABOUT THE ART OF LAPPING.

DVD 1 - PHILOSOPHY - Dani DaOrtiz's complete philosophy on the lap, from theoretical to the practical details of the lap. Ideas, techniques, effects and the general use of everything to do with the lap. In the segment called "Perspective," Juan Tamariz shows us his vision of the lap, starting with Slydini and expanding on ideas never published before.

DVD 2 - BALTASS - For the first time, Yann Frisch gives us a fully detailed explanation of his Grand Prix FISM act, based on the constant use of the lap as well as many other physical and psychological techniques. Ideas, techniques and construction, everything is explained in detail. In the "Perspective" segment, Lennart Green opens his mind about this powerful weapon called lap, showing coin and card techniques.

DVD 3 - TECHNICAL - Yann and Dani discuss ideas, concepts and techniques about lapping switches, lapping actions and retrieving techniques. In the "Perspective" chapter, Miguel Angel Gea talks about his conception in the form of theories, techniques and tricks.

DVD 4 - PRACTICAL - The most practical part of this work, featuring a live show with twelve effects explained in full detail. Additionally, in the "Perspective" segment, Gabi Pareras shows us his deep conceptions on the lap, covering not only the philosophical, but also the practical.

DVD 5 - AND MORE - This DVD shows us the world of Yann Frisch and all his fascinations for lapping techniques, presenting almost eighty techniques with a cup and ball, like color changes, transformations, vanishes and appearances. In the "Perspective" chapter, Gene Matsuura unmasked the legend of Slydini, in almost an hour of conversation, in which Slydini is unmasked through stories and techniques.

Yann Frisch is amazing and so is DaOrtiz. Even if you don't use a lot of the stuff on this set you will find it extremely entertaining and eye-opening. Really got my creative juices flowing again. I highly recommend it.

Excellent Set of DVDs but ... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 29th, 2018
This is an excellent set of DVDs over all, but there are weaknesses.

The English language explanations and teaching are difficult to understand as none of the principles are native English speakers (except Gene Matsuura at the very end). I expect, but don't know because I don't speak Spanish, that the Spanish language explanations and teaching are better. So I can only rate the English language portions.

In the English language explanations, there are weaknesses in the assumptions made about the level of knowledge of lapping that the students will bring. For me, there were not enough baby steps. I was expecting some practice exercises to aid in developing sound lapping techniques, the way that Michael Ammar does in his instruction for the use of a topit. There was none of that. There was an attempt to cover both the philosophy and practical aspects of lapping while giving you a number of routines which utilize lapping.

The emphasis was mostly on lapping with cards. Yann Frisch did cover his wonderful BALTASS routine in detail, but there is only minimal coverage of coins and other objects. Reference is made to Slydini's approach, and there is a discussion of it from a philosophical standpoint by Gene Matsuura, but no real teaching of it on these DVDs. I consider that a serious deficiency.

The 5th DVD has Yann Frisch demonstrating, but not exposing or teaching scores of moves. He makes them look wonderful. But how is he accomplishing them? No explanation is given.

Nor are there detailed explorations of the types and use of servantes in lapping or combining lapping with the use of topits.

Finally, the production of the physical DVD case and Contents pamphlet has problems. The physical DVD case has to hold all 5 DVDs, but instead of having one DVD per page or container of a case, it has two overlapping (no pun intended) DVDs on each of two pages and one on one. This makes access to the second DVD on one of the two DVD pages difficult. You have to remove the 1st DVD, then juggle it as you remove the 2nd, then put back the 1st while juggling the 2nd. And given the stiffness of the center storage buttons, I worry about breaking or scratching one of these expensive DVDs every time I get them out. The Contents pamphlet, is very pretty, but unfortunately it doesn't actually match the contents of the DVDs 100%. For example, the significant discussion of Slydini lapping by Gene Matsuura is entirely missing and the perspective of Miguel Angel Gea is listed for the wrong DVD.

For these weaknesses I had to drop the number of stars down to 4.

Don't get me wrong, this is an important set of DVDs on a subject important to close-up workers. But it could have been, should have been, much better.

If your hesitating..... Don't!!! Report this review

Let's say you love these great magicians and you really want to know what they have to teach you but you're unsure of the price. Put those worries aside my friend because you are about to enter a world you didn't even know existed! Besides the tricks and tutorials by some of the greats you will have access to Yann Frisch's beautiful baltass routine (which BTW makes it worth it in itself trust me!!) plus tons of in depth discussion from all of them about the art of lapping! Absolutely no regrets about buying this. Get it for yourself.... You'll see what I mean;)

I am not a "Lap person", but I found these teachings and reveals to be quite interesting. I enjoyed the banter between the two. :)

I love Yann Frisch's cup and ball routine! Enormously excellent, but requires a lot of work. All the magicians are quite fabulous. It's worth the effort to learn lapping.
