Ok, I have seen the first 35 minutes and all I can say is: I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!! Seriously? The
methods are really stupid to say the least. Maybe this would fool 1 in 20 people online but no way
will this fool anyone face to face. Besides, the trick says this will work EVERY TIME. No way, this
will not work every time. The "trick" with the cards, I can guarantee most people will mess up the
order and this will not work. The video is not even an instructional video. It's this guy speaking
to another about his methods... I really can't watch anymore it's so boring!! This could have been
summed up in an 15-20 minute video (at the very most). Seriously, I can't believe I just spent $20
on this! I mean, come on! [redacted]. I would not have bought this for $0.99! But then again, I dare
you to buy it...

This was well worth the money I knew the first part but he expanded the use by far more than I ever
thought to use it . I couldn’t wait to call my buddy and use it after practicing for a 1/2 hr he all
ways tries to catch me I blow his mind away this is a must have during lock down but think I can
still use it in my shows live. At the end they said see you next time I hope I don’t miss his next
down load if there is one this deserves 10 stars live it

Adding this to my repertoire.

I bought VMRS before any reviews as I'm a fan of Jamie's work and find his visual and written
teaching style easy to follow.
Whilst the video downloaded I had a scan through the
additional pdf. A wave of disappointment came over me when I saw images and descriptions which
matched some content of the The Tracker book (which I had purchased earlier in the year), my
disappointment meant I only cast my eyes through the document and didn't digest the content as I was
keen to get started on the video to see if my disappointment was valid.
I was worried that
I wasn't going to learn anything that wasn't covered in the book.
However, Jamie is very
good at taking a concept and building on it, often making you think why didn't I think of that.
My disappointment soon faded as Jamie explained how the concept could be applied to virtual
meeting presentations and that's when my light bulb moment happened.
The video itself is
made up of recorded performances of Jamie performing online 1 on 1 or for a couple via video call
and, I'd describe it as, teaching through conversation with Dee Christopher (big fan of Dee's work
too) again via video call - we get so used to the high quality, HD, over produced videos it can
catch you off guard when you start watching something that isn't a studio filmed converstion with
people sat next too each other (remember those days...). In the UK we are still in lockdown and have
been for 8+ weeks.
The video works, tells you what you need to know and given the
circumstances I think Jamie has done a good job of giving us the opportunity to perform something
for friends, family, colleagues and those that are performing online shows over skype, zoom, Teams
Some of the information is glossed over (re dice) but rewatching and thinking about it
logically it will make sense. There's a bit towards the end of the video where Dee references
something to clarify an earlier point but I feel it's been put in the wrong place and should have
been cut in nearer the point he is referring to.
Overall, as the owner of The Tracker, VMRS
does feel like an add on and as a result I feel is slightly overpriced for what you get. I may have
held off on the purchase until the reviews came in had The Tracker been mentioned.
disappointed that my favourite routine from the book is discussed in the video and included in the
pdf - but that's just me.
Would I be disappointed as a new purchaser? I don't think I
As an owner of The Tracker would I use anything taught in VMRS? Yes, and therefore
it's a worthwhile purchase for me. I'm looking forward to trying it out with my colleagues over MS
Teams over the coming weeks.
Thank you Jamie for bringing this out, I appreciate the work
any creator is putting out at the moment to allow us as performers to take our art in a new
direction and challenging us to think about how we can still entertain in the current environment.

I've benefited so often from the reviews on this site I decided to take the first leap for a change
but now I've learned my lesson.
For those unfamiliar with lie detector routines this could
be worth a peek (for half the price) but I'd recommend looking at some of the great routines that
have been well reviewed on the subject.
I was impressed at the length of the instructional
video - until I started watching. It's more of a Q&A / interview style repeatedly going over the
same information. The method is summed up five minutes and the rest is repeating most of the same
information without structure.
