Every illusion is ultimately taught well....eventually. Joe gives great tips and advice. The others
also added a good amount.
But the rhythm of the lecture is plodding. There is a lot of
superfluous and unnecessary talk. Joe's flow chart for the points of the illusion, while obviously
good for him, was a long and overly analyzed.
There were a number of times I picked up
rubber bands to practice along only to put them back down because Joe thought of something else he
wanted to add.
I feel what was taught could have happened in a more fluid, organized manner
and have taken about 1/2 to 2/3 of the time due to these drawbacks.
These drawbacks are the
reason for a lost star. I feel a lecture to fellow professionals should have the same rehearsal and
focus on delivery to us as the magician puts into rehearsing and performing the illusions for the
lay public. Yes...I'm that much of a perfectionist.
