Card Manipulation 101 v1
So when this 1on1 was released I was quite excited. Not only did I recently see Dan's act live (and have become a fan of his work) but I have wanted to get into card manipulation for quite sometime. For the past year I have thought of getting McBride's DVD's on the subject but just could not afford to put that much money into something when I had to buy other props and pieces that I currently use.
Enter this new 1on1 series.
I don't think I even need to touch on production quality as I think we all fully know the kind of videos T11 produces.
In this 1on1 you learn:
Back Palm Production
Roy Benson's Strictly Underhanded Production
One Handed Fan
Continuous Fan Production
There is also a large section on the cards and items you will need for manipulation as well as some hand exercises.
Dan is a very good teacher and explains everything as if he was just sitting there with you saying "Dude, this is a back palm.". If you have never seen Dan's work before he has been described as "infamously mercurial" and that shines through this 1on1 in many hilarious ways.
All in all I knew most of the material covered in this 1on1 (mostly self-taught) but wanted to see the ins and outs of these moves as well as Dan's thoughts on them. I was most certainly not disappointed.
In addition to the moves and techniques Dan also talks a bit about framing and how and where to perform card manipulation.
If you want to get into card manipulation I really think that this is a great and inexpensive way to start. If nothing else it can definitely spark your interest and perhaps give you the nudge to purchase more expensive resources. I know I will be following this 1on1 series and look forward to the ones to come.
P.S. Yes, I know I said I was waiting a while to get this 1on1 but I couldn't resist... Dan... magical brother... you are straining my wallet this month... haha
