The DVD Case and Menu:
The DVD Case is nice, and has a very modern feel to it. It looks
very clean and sleek. The menu is very easy to work through as well.
All performances were shot on the street for live people in HD. The Explanaitions, while bieng
high quality, are also shot from two angles. Niether angle is particuallarly up close, but it can
still be learned from.
What is odd is that all the music is by Daniel
Garcia and he CAN'T SING! I liked the lyrics a lot though, and he is a great guitarist.
It says it goes two climaxes better,
and it doesn't lie. This has a really killer ending and a great middle. Daniel Garcia is one of
those who can take a routine and make it turbocharged. Oh, and another thing. It is super easy!!!
This routine has you borrowing the spectators ring
to go into a sort of odd, modified coins accross that includes a ring. It happens in the spectators
hands, which really freaks them out. I like the moves in this one as well, and I think you will too.
A bill switch, Garcia style! This is kinda what inspired
Greed; it has the same move. This is really neat, and for those of you who like to look into bill
switches, you could buy it just for this. It is very magical as it gives the illusion that you don't
touch the bill as it changes.
This is the whole reason I
bought this DVD. To get Ego. You can see a performance here:
I don't agree that the Ego Change is
original though; I have seen it many times before. But in terms of structure and practicallity, this
effect was all it was made out to be and more. I love this routine.
This is super, super cool. If I wasn't super afraid to touch a cigarette, I would
use this. Not only is it really cool, but it is really visual as well! The illusion of the cigarette
burning thru the deck is perfect, and it completely floored me when I saw it. If you will touch a
cigarette, you will use this!!!
that completely Floored me when I saw this. It is really awesome and the performance is
hillarious!!! A ring visaully links onto a rubber band. Then for the ending, one rubber band is just
tossed onto the to the other where they link.
DVD is really, really good and entertaining. You will definitly feel you got your moneys worth. I
rate this DVD a 5/5.

I love the Daniel Garcia Project DVDs. They are phenomenal. They are well produced, the music is
excellent, they all have extras like bloopers and you get to see Daniel out on the streets or in
bars performing his effects for real people, not some canned studio setup.
DVD 1, I will
say that I didn't care for every trick. However, if you are a coin guy you will perform personal
safe. The ego move is a knack to get the timing down, but once you do it is a highly visual change.
Finally, Satisfaction Guaranteed could have been sold as a separate effect. it is truly awesome.
Hi! This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.
These DVD's are Daniel Garcia's
crowned jewel. You gotta get them. They are WELL worth it.
I will warn you, Daniel
Garcia's effects are not for the feint-of-heart. He will make you work, and work hard, to execute
many of the things that are in here. Some of the effects are downright difficult to do, in fact,
some of them I still struggle with after having these DVD's for years. However, there are some less
difficult effects to start out with, and the moves and sleights you learn here are invaluable. The
effects he shows you in these DVDs are miracle-status, and will have your audience dumbstruck!
With practice and patience these DVD's can be a HUGELY beneficial resource for you and will take
your magic to the next level. They are fun to watch as well, as Daniel is a genius and has a very
entertaining demeanor about him. You will enjoy these DVDs, so just buy them already!
The methods that he shows are great especially the ego change, I get excited when new moves are
The first reaction that I had when seeing the cover of the dvds was: another DVD of street magic
But after seeing the demo, is fascinated seeing this young person, presented
And definitively Daniel Garcia has been made a name in the world of the
magic; I believe that this is his first series of videos, but you can be sure that you will not lose
money if you acquire another one of his dvds.
In this series of videos you will learn
dozens of tricks with items suchs cards, coins and rubber band, among others articles, each one of
the effects explained in a clear way.
My recommendation is to pay attention in the form in
which Daniel presents his effects since he is unique and original, cannot be said that he tries to
be like another magician, since definitively he has his own and amazing style.
I like it and I use a fair number of the effects taught in the DVD and they're fairly easy to
perform the teaching is great and nothing is left out.
