The moves are taught and performed by Sepp Holzer and Andy Edmüller. This is a great DVD set with lots of information, but the presentation, which is far below that of World’s Greatest Magic Standards, leaves lots to be desired.
While the publishers could have gleaned great card material from the likes of Steve Draun and Bill Malone, Sepp Holzer and Andy Edmüller demonstrate a wide variety of moves and some flawless and impressive technical skills.
While the card work, technique and instruction are excellent, this DVD features the world’s worst music that plays in the background. The music reminded me of the background music that’s played in 1930's era cartoons and comedies. It’s too bad that there isn’t an option to turn off the music as it becomes annoying over time. And the title screens are equally cheesy.
Despite the poor presentation - I’ve grown to expect a higher level from the World’s Greatest Magic series - this doesn’t detract from a great resource.
Volumes of Information
Volume three covers center deal, false riffle shuffles (four variations), classic pass (five variations), turnover pass (nine variations), additional passes (gambler’s, Hermann, Charlier, Table Cover and more), and DLs (seven variations).
You can purchase a single volume or the entire set. I highly recommend this one to all who are serious about card technique. Get ready to practice.
