Item Number: DB1166
Join Alex Pandrea in Hollywood on a journey of card magic.
On this DVD Alex teaches 3 moves with cards; a switch, a color change, and a control. In addition to the sleights, Alex provides multiple routines with each move so you can add them to your working repertoire. Filmed on location in Los Angeles, this is visual, practical material for card magicians.
Monet - Alex takes the Paintbrush Change and injects it with steroids. This move lets you make a single card change multiple times! Many people believed that this was trick photography when they first saw it - then they saw it live and realized it uses nothing but pure and elegant sleight-of-hand. Learn the Paintbrush Change, Reverse Paintbrush, Single-to-Single, a Split Effect, and more! This is one of those moves that's really fun to practice and even more fun to perform!
AP Spread Control - Ed Marlo's Convincing Control got its name for a reason. While the original is indeed convincing, Alex has worked on this control for years to bring it to a whole new level of deception and sophistication. It can be used to control a card to the top or bottom of the deck - your choice! Alex covers 3 techniques, including a fantastic one-handed version!
T.O.P. - Influenced by the Turnover Pass, Alex's T.O.P. move allows you to control a card to the top or the bottom of the deck, and can also be used to force a card with minimal sleight of hand! This utility move can be applied to countless routines, but Alex teaches 3 full effects in complete detail that perfectly utilize the sleight.
