Does anyone know how much card manipulation is on Charlie Fryes’s Eccentricks 3 DVD? I’m really not interest in the other stuff on the DVD but if a good chunk of it is CM I may consider it. Is there a demo anywhere of it? Thanks

I wouldn't say that 'a good chunk of it' is card manips., but what there is is worth seeing.

Having said that, I think all his dvd's are worth watching right the way through. For me, it is not what he does, but the way he does it - they are also very entertaining.

If you are just wanting to learn card manips., then go the McBride way (and others, I guess) sort out what you want for your purpose and thoroughly enjoy putting it all together.

I've played around for years with manips. and I am still not the greatest but boy do I enjoy it.

Best of,

Dave

Frye's routine is excellent, though. However, he doesn't explain the basic moves, because there is so much of that out there already.

I'm not a card manipulator but he certainly gives you enough to get you going whether you've had a lot of experience or not.

Mostly it's the routines and the choreoghraphy that hes' worked out for you.

I belive #3 is the DVD with the split fans, etc.
As he says on the DVD, he gets a lot of mileage out of half-a-deck of cards.

I found his card work very sensible.

All his DVDs are must-haves.

Thanks, I can aleady do most of the card manips. I was just looking for some new ideas on putting a goofy spin on the presentation.

Thanks!

Markis,

Then Eccentricks 3 is for you. That is EXACTLY what you will get from this dvd. I would also recommend Eccentricks 2. Give it a shot. I really don't think you will be disappointed.

Yep, I agree - go for it, Makis. Charlie Fry is certainly 'goofy' in his presentation.

Best,

Dave

I re-re-re-re-re-watched these today and they are just utterly astounding.

For card manip, I think #3 is the most practical. It's the one with the cards/hat routine.

Wally,

I have all 3 and watch them over and over. Each of them is great. I would suggest going to his site and reading the blurb about each one. I think you'd love them all if you're into comedy magic & juggling.
