Has anyone seen "The Pitch Video" by Brian Flora and Docc Hilford? Its available at:

The copy at the website claims the video covers pitching balloons, fuzzles, Svengalis, animated matchboxes and more. It sounds great, but I'd like to to hear a review if possible.

Its a video...Docc talks about me on the video.I just talked to Docc a few weeks ago on the phone...I would never put someone else video down,but Docc said "I wish I didn't do that video" The Svengali pitch he does on the video he made up...its NOT mine.

I've seen it,stick with Don's stuff. Or even the "Expert at the Pitchtable".
I just didn't think it was very well done. Flora's info on the balloons may be useful if you do balloons. But for the worm and Svengali pitch I would recommend the other ones. With Don's stuff you also get resources for stock, which is valuable in itself. On the Flora/Hilford they teach you how to MAKE your own worms. Which I can't imagine anyone doing.

Jimmy Dixson may do the animated matchbook in his mouse pitch. I can't remember. He does a few other effects besides the mouse with his hookup. In the "Expert" book and tape.

I have Docc's Pitch Video, It really is not all that. The Pitch, looks unpolished, as if he was bored. Making the fuzzle, is a nice idea, if you were in need of something, but it really did look pretty sad. I bought mine second hand, so it did not come with the envolpe, which is something I wanted to see. I would pass on the video, and stick with Don's

Another vote for passing on that video and getting Don's...I've had them both, there is no comparison. Don's is way better.

Too bad. Docc has top notch stuff.I haven't seen his pitch DVD, but from some of the posts it looks like something that isn't up to Docc's level of stuff. I'm glad I went with Driver.

It's kind of a quirky video, showing Brian doing his kid-show act at a park for some festival. Then, there's Brian doing balloons for a line of kids, and then Docc doing the Svengali Pitch.

I thought the best part was Brian's ballooning. He made real simple sculptures, but has real good interaction with the kids - really made each child feel special while making a balloon.

I'm pretty sure Don is mentioned in the audio, "Selling and Playing the Outdoor Show".

I love Docc's work, but this video is not worth the money. Get Don Driver's and REALLY learn how to pitch! It's an art and no one teaches it better than Don!!
