This, along with The Art of Card Splitting, ARE THE ONLY TWO MAGIC MAKERS DVDS worth purchasing. The
other 15 dvds contain only material that is substandard in the professional repetoire. Only about a
third of these color changes are practical and usuable, but 5 or 6 is enough for any pro. If you can
do 3 or even 2 of these color changes WELL, strongly consider NOT buying this. I can imagine myself
suriving with only the erdnase and twirl change. You can learn color changes elsewhere.

I'm beginning to understand that there are people who know how to do some tricks and there are
people who know how to do magic - that is, they understand the art and not just a few routines. If
you want to understand the art and increase your knowledge, you will buy this DVD set. A lot of
people would argue about which color change dvd is the best (Noblezada or this one) but I would say
that they both are invaluable resources and I have learnt many things from both. Note: Some moves
here are impractical for real world application on their own but don't be dissuaded from the real
goal here: learning. Buy now.

I had first bought Noblezada's DVD for color changes and was very unhappy when i saw that something
for only for dollars more had over 40 more tricks than the other DVD. This DVD is probably one of my
best buys from penguinmagic yet. Ben goes into actual deep teaching sessions that actually help
explain how to do the trick. And ALL of the tricks on here are awesome, and many of them are not too
difficult either, its my best routine yet. Trust me on this when i say its well worth every penny
spent. BUY IT NOW!

If you can't decide between this and Jay Noblezada's color change DVD, definitely get this. It was
many more color changes, it has a chapter on different double lifts, it has the ShapeShifter color
Ben's relaxed and thorough instruction is just way ahead of Jay's strained
"street" attitude, which seems more concerned with being "cool" rather than teaching the moves
From a technical perspective, I also prefer this DVD, with dual angle views throughout

As a great DVD for anyone that performs card magic. The instructions pretty good. The production
does a pretty good job with angles for instruction. You can do some amazing things with the special
cards that are available today if you know how to perform the color changes on this DVD. A great
deal of practice is necessary in order to do this properly.
If u are using cards this is a DVD for u! no more to be said, lots of good tips and cool changes.
There are some very, very good color changes taught on these DVD's and Ben Salinas does a great job
teaching them as well. Some of the color changes I have wanted to learn for quite a long time, but
could never find either a book or DVD that taught them.
So if you like color changes and
want to expand on the ones you already know, then I highly suggest this DVD set.
over 50 moves is nice, but many are angly and not very practical for the real world, i only knew the
erdnase change before this, and i picked up about 5 more
i recieved this as a bonus item,
so to me, it was worth it, but i don't know if i would spend 40 for this, if you have absolutely no
color changes, this is a nice set to pick up
some moves are extremely easy, and others will
take practice to get them to look as good as ben
the teaching is outstanding, he goes into
lots of great material in here. no one needs 50 color changes, but the key is
to finding a few that work for you, and this dvd will surely accomplish this
A lot of really cool changes, would have gotten a 5 but some of the changes were a little blah.
Definitely a good pick-up though as you don't need a great deal of sleight of hand or even a great
deal of skill for that matter. Just lots of practice and you're good to go. I really like the
split-screen aspect, different angles make it alot easier to learn
I just got this product and I must say I am very pleased with it. The DVD talks through everything
you need to know to perform the changes and there are some very good changes in it. Before I bought
it I thought there would be only about 10 changes that are good and the rest would be rubbish, but I
was wrong. Most of the changes are very good, hard to catch and get very good reactions. And I
believe it has every colour change that Jay's DVD has, except two.
I liked how Ben and
MagicMakers tried their best to find the owner of each colour change (who originated it). Ben also
says how difficult each change is, so you don't get frustrated if you can't do it easily. When the
teaching is hard, the screen splits into two different cameras and you can watch whichever one you
find more useful. This was the feature I liked the most.
What could have been better? I can't
find an answer.
Thank you Ben Salinas for making this DVD
