Approaches and Presentations
Some discussions talk about props and how they work while others do not and the level of discussion and instruction varies with the effect. As examples, some illusions such as the Hindu Basket (disc 1) and Metamorphosis (all of disc 2) are covered thoroughly as The Pendragons explain the props, techniques, their artistic approach and more.
On the other hand, the segment on levitations (disc 4) discusses presentation; how the Pendragons altered equipment to suit their style and offers suggestions on passing the hoop. However, you do not see the workings of the illusion itself. Others, such as Interlude (disc 4) only offers a performance and discussion on how to make the illusion your own.
I have little doubt that volume 2, which covers "Metamorphosis," will be the most popular. This is the first disc that I watched and I thoroughly enjoyed learning about what it takes for the Pendragons to perform their stunning, signature effect. You'll learn everything here from the props, costume change, switching, safety and more.
Volume 4 returns to illusions and covers "Broom Suspension;" "Levitation;" "Impalement;" "The Election," a stunning transposition where Charlotte Pendragon seemingly changes places with Jonathan Pendragon and ends up in the audience; and Interlude (history only).
Philosophy of Magic
The Pendragons have been a dominant force in magic for decades and are now revealing all. When Charlotte and Jonathan talk, you'll want to listen. I know that I'm all ears.
