(This review is for Magic Under Fire by Harry Robson & RSVP - DVD)
I love this DVD and I recommend it to anyone new to strolling or table-hopping.
Here's what this DVD is not:
- A treatise on how to handle difficult spectators. The trailer makes it look like Harry's going to focus on what to do when "under fire" with disinterested or otherwise difficult audiences. That's not really the case here - Harry shares many anecdotes and shows several video clips of working in challenging conditions, but he doesn't directly address how to engage these people in these situations, except perhaps by example.
- A showcase of hip, state-of-the-art "street" effects. Harry's relatively conservative in the types of effects presented here - nothing new or "edgy".
What this DVD is:
- A collection of very well-taught, solid effects for strolling or table-hopping from a professional who's been making his living as a strolling magician for years.
- A smattering of useful tips on topics such as getting paid, and a number of hilarious anecdotes that teach some important points.
- A collection of live performances in front of real audiences.
While not aimed at those new to magic, there's a lot of good teaching here for the less experienced. Example: Don't know how to control a selected card to the top of the deck? Harry teaches a simple method that can be used with almost any deck with just a few seconds of prep and no tools.
Most of the effects center around playing cards, but there are other props involved - wallets, pens, TTs, silks, etc. Harry demonstrates with props that he sells, but his products aren't specifically required.
I'm a big fan of Harry, and of this DVD!
