Now Available: Solo by Michael James.

With over 90 minutes of flourishes, Solo is designed to challenge and inspire the contemporary cardist. A production that started nearly eight months ago has in fact been in the works for four years.

It’s 52 against one. Beat the odds. Discover Solo.

In a world that is overflowing with extra long dribbles and unnatural geometric displays, Michael favors a classic approach where fluid and expressive motions are top priority.

Solo features ten signature card flourishes, four bonus moves, and multiple special features. Now available on DVD and digital download. Check out the trailer HERE.

Exposé – Cardistry!

Posted by Michael James on January 9th, 2012 in General

This week, Zach and Christen decided to switch it up and review Cardistry-related downloads. Three tutorials are covered in one episode!

First is Isolated by Jose Morales-a relatively new style of cardistry that looks a lot like dubstepping with cards. Next is Jericho by Nauris Neibolts-a cool flourish with an insanely smooth ending. Finally, Phaced by Tobias Levin-his rendition of the skater cut that simply looks awesome.
