Random I-Tunes Song of The Moment: Epilogue from the Les Miserables soundtrack
The False Deals Project Review
Two DVDs, a buttload of moves, techniques, effects, etc., $35 bucks and one The False Deals Project Review. Is it gem or is it rubble? Stay tuned to find out.
The False Deals Project Review: Effect
What you'll learn is a bunch of routines from some of the greatest minds of magic history. Many of the routines taught are modified to use false dealing techniques to add a new level of deceptiveness. Take a peek at the ad copy for some of the "stuff" you'll find on the DVD set.
The False Deals Project Review: Method
This is certainly an advanced DVD set. It covers second deals, bottom deals, center deals, etc. These, along with other standard, yet advanced, sleights are the methods employed to effect the effects. This stuff is pretty hard core and not for the faint of heart. It will take some serious dedication.
There is an occasional "thing" that might more easily make its way into the repertoire of an intermediate or maybe even beginner magician, but for the most part, this is for the advanced student of the art. Lastly, one thing to note about method is that even though these methods are extremely hard core and advanced, they add a whole new depth the level of deception on each and every effect. When these techniques are employed properly, you're audience will have no where to go. The magic is impossible seeming.
The False Deals Project Review: Ad Copy Integrity
The ad copy is very accurate, as is the norm with Big Blind Media. Watch the video trailer, and you'll get a very good sense of exactly what you're being taught on this DVD set.
The False Deals Project Review: Product Quality
As everyone (especially my lawyer) knows, I've stalked . . . er . . . um . . . I mean . . . admired . . . Owen Packard from a far (very, very, very far — my lawyer made me add the extra "very's."). That . . . ahem . . . admiration comes from seeing products being released that go the extra, extra, extra mile in an effort to produce a top notch product. This one is exactly that. It's very well produced, detailed, in depth and extremely thorough.
The exact finger positions, pressure points, grips, etc. required to perform these moves are all taught in great detail. Liam Montier is there, of course, to keep Mr. McBride on track in the teaching segments. As always, he does an excellent job.
The False Deals Project Review: Final Thoughts
This one's easy folks. If you're looking to learn super hard core advanced sleight of hand, this is an excellent resource.
