He used poker size playing cards. Bee brand. Also, he has a new dvd called Zoom, Fly, and Bounce. It teaches spinning card productions and floor bouncing. Very good dvd. Also manipulation without tears.

Its a beginners course but still has some good points in it.

I suggest both. Hope this helps.

Brandon gives some great resources. Thanks Brandon. jeff covers off on a lot of stuff on those DVds if you only learned what was found in them, you would have enough "tools" to build a card act that would go over very well with an audience. remember that the moves you are learning are only tools. You want to learn your tools so that you can use them to build the best act you can build. Also remember that because you know 150 moves with cards does not mean your audience wants to see all 150 of them in any act. Pick out and use the tools that best create the most entertaining card act for you and your audiences.

Well the thing to remember is that card manipulation moves are just that. They are TOOLS and tools only. The problem is that manipulators fall into the trap of performing every single move they know how to do because they love them so much. The problem is that they forget that to the audience, doing this makes any routine or act boring. You have to strive to think creatively and to use the moves you learn to create a manipulative act that is unique and different.

Kyle,

Your absolutley right. I know dozen's of card moves but I only do the ones I am very good at. I even get board watching myself do manipulation sometimes, so I know that audiences would get board too. Which is why I love to spice up my act as much a possible.

Hi everyone,

Card manipulation is a huge subject. Everyone practise card moves for their act but sometimes its hard to do on stage you know. A solution for that problem is, go to any stage, have some auidience and do your favourite 4-5 card moves and start to build your act. I mean you must start from the beginning.

Also there are great cards in the market. Forexample: Bee cards,Murphy Cards,Peter Marvey Cards..

magicially yours,

Nedim Guzel

When you get to doing multiple shows a week, or even a day, you can't afford to use those expensive palming decks. Bee cards are much more cost effective, and, as Jeff has constantly reminded me, use poker size cards for visibility and snap.

Hello!
I love card manipulations too!
I`m praticing since about one year!

Check out my Vid:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VAYb2I7MK8

I earn Jeffs Art of C.M., I think that there are most of the best most used productions shown!McBride is a great teacher and its a must for manipulators!
But I didn`t get enough so I bought:
-Jeff Sheridan "genius at work 2"
-Tony Clark "Winning card routine"
-Jeff Mcbrids "without tears"
-Romaine "monarch on manipulators"
and Stephane Vanel "manipulations"

...all of them are great and I took some things, productions and fans from all this dvds!
So I learned things like "diminishing cards", "perpertual fans" or "leteral palm" and some other cool stuff not mentioned in Art of C.M.!
So if you`re interested in this kind of magic go and Buy McBrides dvd, but if you`re not getting enough there are some other dvds I listend!

Sorry for my english I´m an austrian guy!(german language)
nice greets chris

I wouldnt reccommend "manipulation without tears" to a beginner. It offers routines and tips for manipulating objects. You need to already have learned backpalming cards and coins to do the taught routines. I would suggest the art of card manipulation series for beginners.

Manipulation without tears is good for people looking to build confidence, though. I'd still recommend it to someone who's a beginner and wants to start performing for real people.

For some manipulations that don't involve Backpalms, notice how he uses also Bicycle cuz since no backpalms and no "flashes" on white edges are relevant, it was inconsequential...

Just start using the poker size Bee brand of cards. If you start with the Bees you will get used to them and you won't have to worry about flashing as much.

It was my impression that manipulation without tears was directed more towards beginners, since it wasn't that difficult.
I have The Art of Card Manipulation Series and World Class Manipulation Series. Would you guys recommend getting Manipulation Without Tears?

chrisgall,

cool video...Nice productions.
What type of cards are you using?...

Amen to Lewis Ganson's book "Expert Manipulation of Playing Cards" (Reprinted by Davenports), this book takes you through so much, from your usual stuff like singles, and split fans, to handwashing (and good handwashing theory...) to stealing loads (very rarely taught well), to working with gloves (also very rarely taught or understood), to ideas for routines, and a chunk on card fans. It includes rare things like Cardinis silk through the fingers, and Thurstons 5 Card Vanish and Reproduction method. Can't recommend this book enough!!
Also Lewis Ganson's "Routined Manipulation Finalle" has some beautiful work on split fans... where he has tried to eliminate the problems with the more common method.
