East meets west! The results are absolutely stunning! Shoot and Apollo spend much of their performance time in environments that are just flat out loud. Too loud for clever patter and repartee. Facing this serious problem on a nightly basis drove them to create visual magic that would pop the eyes out of unsuspecting audiences without a single word.Cultural Xchange is a compilation of fourteen of the best items in their repertoire. Each is a totally visually head crusher that the eyes see, but the brain just cannot believe. Shoot Ogawa is the recipient of the prestigious Magic Castle's "Close Up Magician of the Year" for 2002.

Shoot has jumped to the top of the close up world also winning the MacMillian Convention's Close Up contest in November 2002. He was also featured on the cover of Magic Magazine in the March 2003 issue. This amazing young man is fast becoming a superstar of magic.

Apollo Robbins has taken the opposite route. He has been working nonstop in Las Vegas for CEO's and celebrities. He first became a rumor to magicians as the incredible pickpocket at Caesar's Magical Empire. Most of Apollo's incredible material is still shrouded in mystery. This DVD is his first visual release. You will be astounded by his magic, his deep thinking and his performance. This DVD is a Bob Kohler Magic Exclusive. It is only available on this site or if you're lucky enough to see Apollo and Shoot lecture. It is not available anywhere else. The DVD is full featured and will play in any country. Each of the performance pieces on the DVD are accompanied by music...loud, fast music. This is to simulate how their magic appears to spectators in the real world.

You will see that times for professional magicians have changed. You need high impact visual magic that is quick and to the point. All of the fat has been trimmed away. Of course, you could easily add appropriate patter but it's the overwhelming visuals that are the stars of this show.The material is coin magic and card magic. Why? You don't have to burden down your pockets with all sorts of props. Just some cards and some coins. You're loaded for bear! Before this DVD was available, I've personally seen magicians offer Apollo and Shoot the price of the entire DVD to tip Trinity or the Neo-Purse Frame...they are that good.

All of the magic on Cultural Xchange takes cutting edge magic to the next level.If you want to take your magic to a higher plane, I highly recommend you get Cultural Xchange or you will soon be fooled by those who did. This material gets my highest recommendation.

I bought this DVD because it teaches one of Apollo Robbin's signature (astonishing!) coin vanishes. However, though Shoot and Apollo do explain all of the sleights clearly, the material on this DVD proved quite challenging for a beginner like me. That said, there are a number of strong, visual routines on the DVD, and I found it inspiring to see the careful, creative thinking that goes into Shoot and Apollo's professional act. Magicians already comfortable with advanced coin handling techniques will appreciate the subtleties taught here.

I bought this DVD years ago and have been using some of the material ever since. I get the best reactions from the 8 ball trick.

I wanted to get it out and refresh my skills on some of the other effects and could not find the DVD. I ordered another one and was just as excited to get it as the first time I watched it. Then I found my other one, so now I have two copies, lol. Still not disappointed over the purchase.

If you are a beginner, you will not be able to perform the material on this DVD right away because they are a little advanced. Keep working on it and you will have some amazing material to use for the rest of your life.

I love this DVD. The music, the magicians, the magic. It's all fantastic. This DVD is filled with visual, eye-popping magic. Specifically, this dvd contains magic that is completely visual, meaning you don't have to be able to speak to your spectators for them to understand the magic. This means language is never a barrier and noisy locales are never a problem. The material is perfect for walk around-style performances; visual, compact, and a quick-reset. It's all card and coin magic, but the variety of plots is enough to keep it interesting. This material is definitely not for beginners. If you put the proper work into these tricks you will have some real gems.
