The Art Of Astonishment DVD has several effects taken from Art of Astonishment and is an official release.

True Astonishments will have mostly brand new effects and pieces of strange not in the Art of Astonishment book. Paul has revisited a few old favorites from the book and either completely reworked or improved them. All together the DVD's will have something like 60 new items.

Paul is working very hard on these DVD's to make them as good as they possibly can. His goal is for EVERY effect to be a reputation maker. No filler or one offs.

I personally can't wait to see the finished product. And the good news is it looks like it might actually be finished this year...unless of course Paul keeps creating new stuff...which is always a possibility....he just can't help himself...which works out really well for the rest of us Smile

My magic buddy hitch hiked across the country from New Jersey to find Paul Harris, and he succeeded this past week. Paul Harris gave a little bit of info on the effects on the DVD and when it'll be out, and the effects sound incredible. Supposedly, they're also all very easy. The effects I heard about sounded like the effects in AoA on steroids. One effect is even "real magic." I don't want to ruin what I heard because this information wasn't made public but I'm very very excited. The 9 DVD set will supposedly come out this June/July and will probably the end all of magic dvd sets.

Pretty much my only concern about this is the price. Hopefully it's available as single DVDs also, since I probably couldn't afford the entire set at once. I can't wait!

Yeah, but I hope it's more than 5 tricks on each DVD.

Even if it is, each effect is supposedly going to be as good as any quality single effect dvd release out there. A few of them will even be on David Blaine's next special, supposedly. I also heard 50 effects were tossed out by Paul Harris because they were not good enough for this DVD set.

Well, I am always impressed by Paul's effects, even if it is one trick on each DVD!

There should be around 7 effects per DVD....

Hmm 7. I suppose that is a decent amount for useable effects.

Are the sets gonna be "set" like Cards, coins, odd stuff, rings. Or just randomized like say the Daniel Garcia Project?

And it is going to be on 9 dvds. That's a lot of effects. Start saving Smile

7 effects, 9 dvds.

That's almost 17 fewer effects than in just the first volume of the Art of Astonishment book series.($45)

Just providing a little perspective.

Wayne Houchin mentions it on his new release Control. It looks like his invisible palm rouine might be on it.

Out of 63 effects, you will probably use a few of them. People would pay $500 for Torn Asunder for example, which is only one effect (well, there are a few phases). I think this is a great deal.

More like nearly all of them
