PROS

The very first effect taught by Sankey immediately gave me a really fun idea for a one-off from this effect. See the “Suggestions” section

In the second routine, Sanders teaches an extremely well executed handling of a routine with cards turning over and then changing into other cards.

Sanders also has a very nice coin production using half dollar coins.

Between the various effects, there is a lot of good humor.

CONS

The DVD is really a collection of random brainstorm thoughts and effects. Jay Sankey seems to put out every single thought that comes into his head. Some of these effects are good, some aren’t.

VERDICT

A real random mix of effects, some good, some not so much.

Manufacturer's Description:

In September of 2002, Jay Sankey and Richard Sanders began video corresponding, sending rough magic ideas and handlings back and forth between Toronto and Montreal. During the next year and a half they included many of the routines in their professional performances while continuing to refine the handlings and swap ideas. Then in January of 2004, Richard and Jay met in Montreal for a series of intense marathon sessions during which they stopped only to grab a shower, some pizza and buy more decks of cards. During the same 72-hour period they taped the material that makes up this very special double volume DVD.

The "Sankey/Sanders Sessions" features 21 astonishing close-up effects along with hilarious improvisations and though provoking interview segments. It is also a fascinating, timeless document of two master sleight-of-hand magicians who have been close friends for over twenty years.
