Built to Last by Doug Conn
Item Number: DA8711
Doug Conn is a book guy. If asked to do a DVD ten years ago, he may have started throwing punches. Okay, no punches, but a stern look would have been given!
If you have been lucky enough to see him perform live, you may be wondering why he didn't do a video project years ago. There is a special care and beauty in the way he handles his magic, and it is absolutely fooling to watch.
At long last, Doug has agreed to get in front of a few cameras and many of his most popular items, and a few new things, have been captured for your viewing pleasure. But you won't just watch... You. Will. Do. This. Stuff.
His magic begs to be performed for laypeople but has the inherent qualities that happen to fool most magicians at the same time. Moreover, each item, whether old or new, is built to last a lifetime. These are neoclassics.
The first disc contains a dozen tricks all utilizing playing cards in unique and absolutely stunning ways.
If you want to give your 52 pasteboard friends a rest, no problem! Disc two is full of incredible non-card magic with coins, rubber bands, sponge bunnies (yep!) and even Scrabble tiles. Also included are his ideas for creating plausible presentations to establish believability, and his boiled down Doug Conn Theory Section.
You get close to three hours of magic on two jam-packed DVDs, all packaged in a full-color six-panel fold out case.
"Doug Conn's magic is that rare combination of creative ideas, technical innovation, and smart presentations."
- Joshua Jay, The Jay-Z of Magic
"I strive to be as original as Doug Conn. That's why I use so much of his material."
- Tyler Wilson, The Notorious B.I.G. of Magic
