Paul Harris is perhaps the single most creative force magic has ever had to offer. Known for his offbeat effects, natural presentation, and deceptive methods, Paul has been on the cutting edge of close-up magic for over two decades. On this DVD you will be treated to nine astonishing "pieces of strange to unleash the moment".

DVD Contents:

  • Unshuffling Rebecca - An in-the-hands, self-working Triumph. Triumph's next evolution. No moves!
  • Backlash - A no-palming signed card to pocket; with an outrageous kicker!
  • Angel Case - A diabolical utility item designed to switch small objects. Perfect for spirit writing!
  • Zen & The Art of Boomerang - Toss a card high in the air, catch it in the deck and it splits its mate!
  • Flesh - Pieces of a toothpick magically and visually jump from hand to hand!
  • Impromptu Nightshades - Paul's classic Nightshades on the fly; borrow a buck and watch George flip his shades!
  • Buck Naked - What a scam! One of the greatest bill swindles ever conceived!
  • The Shape of Astonishment - You have to see it to believe it; the imprint of a quarter in a piece of foil changes instantly from heads to tails! This will really kick you.
  • Fizz Master - Cause the carbonation to travel from one soft drink to another!
Running Time Approximately 1hr 28min

I'm astonished Report this review

I like this DVD project. Sure, it's a little strange the way it was put together, but at the end of the day it's the effects that matter. I love seeing PH work regardless. I really like Unshuffling Rebecca, Nightshades, Shape of Astonishment, and Fizz Master. Wayne Houchin likes Fizz Master so much that he used it in his stage show. The other effects are fair, but not my cup-o-tea. Regardless, I highly recommend this to anyone. The effects are not difficult from a technical standpoint.

I really enjoyed the boomerang card bit. I would do it differently, because it is just too difficult for me to do it the way he teaches, but it was the first time I saw someone explain it and it inspired me to come up with a method that works for me. However, the DVD was put together in a wierd way, with a LOT of talk talk talk before getting to an effect. Then, it was really wierd that after each effect, the spectator would get with his or her friends to tell them how amazing the trick was. I didn't quite get why it was important to sit through someone telling someone else why Paul's trick was so amazing. Maybe there is something I am supposed to learn from this. Perhaps it shows the differences between what is said and done in performance and the way it is remembered afterward. All in all, not bad, but now the best DVD.

A Great Buy Report this review

Paul Harris' Art of Astonishment books are some of the best magic books out there. On this DVD you will learn some of the best stuff featured in those books. The improve nightshades, Backlash, and Unshuffling Rebecca are probably the best tricks on the whole DVD but you may feel otherwise. If you can't afford to buy the books, this is a great way to start.

Good but not for me Report this review

I was hoping for better. I really like Paul's excellent teaching style and calm voice and demeanor. Super easy to learn from. But the effects on this video are like the rejects from the art of astonishment books. Sorry, but Flesh has never been that impressive. Unshuffling Rebecca is OK but I would just rather do a real Triumph. None of these routines are all the difficult so if you are looking for some easy material then you will probably find something good.
