Seems an incomplete statement to me. No website, no publisher, or distributor. Maybe a boo boo.

I was hoping to maybe figure what was being either asked or said with a little more information.

Not sure what the purpose of the original post might be. Ted???

These will be out in a few weeks put out by my company Paper Crane Productions. The series is called Declassified and They are for beginners but they also have some stuff that will appeal to non beginners too.

Ahhh...good luck with your series. Will you have more info on them at some point that will be easily accessible? Price, effects, etc...?

Message: Posted by: ted french (Aug 14, 2007 12:26AM)
Thanks, I will make sure to do that.

Looks very very good!
Message: Posted by: MagicalAdam (Aug 14, 2007 12:33PM)
I agree with Cory. This looks like an excellent base for a beginner. An ideas on price range?
Message: Posted by: ted french (Aug 14, 2007 12:57PM)
$24.95 Thanks for the positive feedback.
Message: Posted by: MagicalAdam (Aug 14, 2007 01:11PM)
Wow, that's great! Do you know what retailers will be carrying this?
Message: Posted by: ted french (Aug 14, 2007 01:20PM)
Anyone that buys from Murphys, which means just about everywhere. It is 2 dvds sold seperately disc 1 is all magic with everyday objects and it does not have a single card or coin trick on the entire DVD. Disc 2 is a double feature part 1 is Metal Bending and part 2 is Color Changes.

Ted I have to say I have seen some of your work besides this project and it's nothing but quality. $24.95 is a bargin.
Message: Posted by: mrunge (Aug 14, 2007 11:30PM)
That looks great! Again, good luck with your project.

Mark. :)

Isn't the broken spoon a routine by Banachek?

But I have to say I quite liked the ring/rubber penetr... nah I'll rephrase that. I liked the trick with the ring and the rubberband that melts through.

Thanks for all the comments this should be in stores in the next few weeks and I get a list of effects that are on the 2 DVDs. BTW this is the most polite section of the forum and probably the most helpful.

The ring through rubberband and the metal bending looks fantastic, for any magician, not just beginners. I can't wait to get this!
Message: Posted by: Cycopolos (Aug 30, 2007 04:59PM)
Looks good I would buy it if I was into that but I'm only on vrd tricks but that's very well presented the preview and looks well worth the money good luck hope you do really well.

Here are some reviews of this DVD :
"...If you want to learn impromptu magic...this is an excellent source...I was very impressed."
-Vaughn, Steve (2007, November). Magic Broadcast.

"For magicians, the impromptu book test is the highlight of the DVD...They are all visual and strong effects."

Where can I get these, since Murphy's only sells to dealers?

I haven't found them on any of the mainstream dealer sites, such as Penguin or Magicdepot.
Message: Posted by: ted french (Jan 28, 2008 01:25PM)
Here is a link for Vol 1. Volume 2 focuses on metal bending and color changes.

Thanks, Ted. Looks like a great video!

For a different view, see [url=http://www.mylovelyassistant.com/index.php?module=MlaReviews&func=display&rid=1286]this review[/url] by Bryce Kuhlman at MyLovelyAssistant.

Hmm, Kuhlmann says: "The routines on this DVD have probably been in the repertoire of every close-up magician that's lasted longer than five years in the art."

The problem is that this DVD is for beginners. So, Kuhlmann might be missing the point.

I think the point is that this material is already available many times over- why re-invent the wheel? Perhaps the target audience eschews reading books....you don't need a dvd to learn everything LOL!.

Another DVD couldn't hurt..price is right too
