I heard it from Nick Verna.
If you ask a true creator if something is possible, they will naturally tell you yes without blinking.
Why? because THEY probably can do it.
I read on the cafe, Nick V.'s original submission video alone, had like 10 different expressions on it, all unique in nature. And other magicans who are familiar with his work will tell you he has even more, some even E hasn't seen that looks like pure magic as well.
With their groundwork anything would be possible if you build it into a routine and use a clever secret gimmick along with some added beats of misdirection and such.
I don't doubt for a second the groundwork here is solid.
If it's not taught in the DVD, I'm sure Nick would teach you.
How do you know what's taught in the DVD or not? Let me guess, Nick Verna? Dude, I'm not sure how "close" you two are, but I doubt he'd give you inside information about the DVDs, and then allow it to be exposed on these forums. If he did tell you anything, my guess is that it was just cover, so when you do get the DVD, you get even more excited because it is taught on there.
Until told otherwise by the creator, my opinion stands.
I said IF it's not on the DVD. The only thing I know that's on the DVD is what is seen in the demo. Please read things you're quoting more thoroughly.
