Jeff Stone's review above is pretty much how I feel.

I did not expect much from this DVD and I was very pleasantly surprised. This is a must have for any card worker learning the ropes.

Liam does a superb job of teaching, explaining, and demonstrating the Elmsley Count. (and other like card counts)

After you have masted the count(s) he gives you an ample supply of tricks to work your magic. I would find it hard to believe that you're not going to get your money's worth with this DVD.

Liam comes across as pleasant and fun. For such a young guy he did an excellent job of covering a sometimes forgotten and taken for granted move in card magic.

What you get in this DVD are two things. You get to really learn a card move. I mean really learn it. And then you get eight tricks to employ with your new knowledge. I really like how he laid out this DVD/teaching session.

I look forward to seeing more work from this well studied performer.

Manufacturer's Description:

Within the art of card magic there are a small group of 'moves' that are considered ESSENTIAL. They are the corner stones of great magic. The basic utensils you need to perform astounding feats with playing cards. And the Elmsley Count is undoubtedly one of them. Master this one simple technique and you can perform some of the most classic magic tricks of all time.

Most famously used to hide the face of one or more cards as you count through a small packet, the Elmsley Count is actually much more versatile and useful than many people realize.

Here in THE ELMSLEY COUNT PROJECT comes the first dedicated DVD set to teach you how to do this classic move correctly, regardless of whether you are just starting out, or are an old hand ready to take this sleight to the next level.

This is a collection of techniques that combine to give you the most natural and deceptive 'bomb proof' Elmsley Count possible. It looks natural, works smoothly and with cards in absolutely any condition.

And once Liam has helped you get a PERFECT Elmsley Count we can move onto the enormous section on related variations.

Learn the Opec Count, the Outjogged Elmsley, the Split Elmsley, the Pinch Grip, the Vertical Elmsley, the Outjogged Elmsley, the Underground Elmsley and the Twist Grip!

And there's even MORE! Next up we teach you the Siva Count, the Jordan Count, the Spirit Count and John Bannon's Discrepancy City Display and the AWESOME Bullet Party Display.

Finally, armed with your new arsenal of Elmsley Count techniques, you are ready for disc 2, in which we present a collection of classic tricks using this wonderful move from the best card men in the world, including Alex Elmsley, Peter Kane, John Bannon, David Solomon and George McBride. These are tricks you could be doing for the rest of your magical career!

So, whether you are learning for the first time, or you are a magician looking to advance the technique you have been using, join Liam Montier and explore all the possibilities within THE ELMSLEY COUNT PROJECT.
