Does anyone know if they have this in stock and whether the dvd set includes the necessary coins??

Just got this today from this dealer. It includes the necessary coins and the DVD. This is a very beautiful, clean visual effect. I ordered it by phone and the guy tried to persuade me to instead buy his own version, which he claimed was better and could do the same as Digital Dissolve and more effects besides. I politely declined and am very happy with this purchase. Feel free to pm me for my thoughts on how to get the coins out cleanly in front of spectators. This is not difficult but is not covered by the David Blaine impersonator who dems it on the DVD. Instead, there is a long pointless sequence about how they chose the name for the effect, And apparently an "easter egg" with an alternative handling. For ****'s sake guys, why not just clear, comprehensive teaching of the effect?

Just got Digital Dissolve at Nemcon this weekend. Great effect. Gaff might be a one trick pony, but really a killer. David, please pm me back about how to get the coins out cleanly.
Thanks, Mark

Believe it or not, this is an old gaff (actually the basic trick) by Steve Dusheck. What's old is new again when presented as such by the new. :)

I think they do mention Dusheck now in the paperwork/website but they didn't always. Great battle here on the Café to get such a basic victory and credit to the inventor of the trick and gaff. And in the words of the late Paul Harvey, "And now you know the rest of the story." :)
