This is a very well shot, and edited DVD project. It’s stupid high quality. There are special effects, a real soundtrack, audio commentary, subtitles and alternate languages.

The major downside is that many of the effects will be deemed ‘unpractical’ by many amateurs watching. He uses all the methods we as magicians groan at with disappointment. One of the methods makes the use of turning a spectator into an instant, shall we say, “Larry, Moe, or Curly.” One of the effects uses a brilliant ‘psychological force’ but it won’t work outside of Europe. Some of the effects require really extensive one time preparation, that will be considered WAY too much by some table workers.

This is a compilation DVD, so it's hard to nail down one specific effect. However, what you do receive is a full live 30 minute show of JeanLuc Bertrand's close up act. Everything from appearing roses to vanishing watch to borrowed ring on glass stem and a whole bunch more stuff. Here's the short version:

The effect in the trailer is called Influence. This effect is essentially an Invisible Deck without a gimmicked deck.

Signature is essentially signed card under the table cloth a la Matt Schulien.

Bottom Card & Card Watch is a pretty solid routine for cards under the spectator's bum-bum and under their watch.

Ring Glass - borrowed ring on wine glass stem.

Final Destination is essentially an open prediction style of effect... [Read More]
