    This DVD has some great effects that are great for fooling your fellow magicians. When I first viewed the performances I couldn't figure out how the hell he was pulling these effects off. After watching the explanations I has a big grin on my face and couldn't wait to perform them at my next ring meeting. The quality is also very high, but no surprise it's big bling media.... And the teaching was very detailed and to the point. Def grab this one!!

    I'll be 100% honest, I was given a copy to review but I'm also 100% honest with myself too. I really value whatever reputation I have. This means, if I think something sucks, I don't talk about it.

    In this case though Ryan's new DVD Effortless Effects kicks SOOO much ass.

    The editing here, Owen has gone above and beyond AGAIN. The footage is super clear, looks awesome and just rocks (literally). I think that's something we except from the BBM crew.

    This is different from Ryan's other work and it shows a LOT of growth from him as a creator and performer. It's not self-working but if you can hold a break you'll be able to perform everything in here. There are also advanced sleights for a little of a direct approach and nearly self-working approaches for those just starting out.

    If you haven't guessed it, I like almost everything on here. Here are my couple highlights:

    The GAP Principle:

    This is was the whole DVD seems to surround. The ability to force cards EASILY and fairly. It's basically making the classic force accessible for everyone. The classic force is basically the ONLY thing it can be compared to that I've found while still being drastically different.

    With the techniques also taught, it's impossible to back track pretty much everything on the DVD.

    This is something I'll be applying to my own card magic and the main reason this DVD is insanely good.

    No Hassle Hof:

    This is my new favorite version of Hofzinser's Aces, It's clear, direct and ends with a crazy good surprise. It goes along with the same level of fairness as the other tricks, super easy and looks like crazy sleight of hand.

    I almost can't do it justice, as clique as it sounds you need to see it.

    Clearly See Through:

    This is the trailer effect posted up. It's a really entertaining trick, simple to do and when you see how much mileage you can get off the "GAP" principle here it's going to blow you away.

    Forget to remember:

    This one may pass by some people. I'm thankful for that. There is some REALLY nice thinking in here and you will like it. There is a small set up but it's really haphazard so it only takes a moment (if you can cull it's every better.

    The end result is really freaky to lay audiences. With a prediction that's been on the table the whole time.


    Of course there is a BUNCH more on there that kicks butt but I really enjoyed this a ton.

    If you work in the real world, there is a BUNCH you can add in right away.

    If you are new to magic, there's a bunch in here you'll be able to do and fool some knowledgeable magicians. Lay people don't stand a chance.

    If you are the casual performer… I'm sure you'll love it too Smile

    I hope this review isn't too positive. Ryan does make me hate him a little bit because he's super talented… But that's the only thing I can think of. I really love the releases from the BBM team, they always really go above and beyond.

    Awesome job Ryan!

    The GAP idea will be something standard in a few years. You will NEED to know this, it's that good. I can't wait to see what other people do with this idea it's a really exciting time in magic. It's VERY rare when something this good comes out. This is the type of thing that stays hidden in the underground for a LONG time before ever thinking of surfacing.
