They sell the lecture dvd which Kostya did last year. In the dvd he gives an in-depth explaination of the 'Roadrunner cull',

well this is rather interesting. I have read and searched a lot about the roadrunner cull. and when I say alot, I mea ALOT. I probably read every single thread there is regarding this topic. I even opened up my own thread. now comes the interesting part: since I was always very interested in this cull my first question of course was were to obtain the technique and learn it from. now comes the dvd in play...the good ol dvd. strangely enough people say it has an in-depth explanation, like diane just told us again. many others say it just mor or less shows a demo, or short handling, not really teaching it. so whats true? is on that dvd really an IN-DEPTHS handling where you see and learn every nuance?? I don't wanne pay big bucks to rip open the celophane and get a dvd where mr kimlat demonstrates the enormous power of this cull without telling me how in the blue hell he did it.
any answer is appriciated, especially from persons who own the dvd.

All the best,

Markus

If I remember correctly the DVD covers the move quite extensively. But the video CD that was along his set of notes only showed the roadrunner cull in action in a "demo only" section.
Maybe this is the source of the confusion.

I took Kostya Kimlats Cull Workshop.

I've practiced the Cull for quite a while.

I don't do it perfect and it take me more than 10 seconds to cull/seperate face up and face down.

But of all the close up stuff I do that get one of the best reactions.

The Culligula Triumph is the routine I do.

But like I just wrote, it takes a LOT of practice. But way wort it!

BTW Kosta Kimlat lecture is one of the best lectures I've seen.

I actually just watched Kosta's DVD today. I thought the explanation was rather thorough. I'm gonna give it a go...so I'll let you know.

Is there a video clip somewhere, where the move is shown (not disclosed, but from a spectators view) ?

Just for the record, I have his notes.......I attended one of his lectures in 2002 in Pekin, IL. They are entitled MAGIC: Experiments with the Art & Thoughts on the Artistry and the second set I have is the Joker Game both autographed copies from 7-23-02. The first set contains the Roadrunner Cull and Cull-igula. Just curious about the dvd someone mentioned. Enough said.

I am not fishing for the secret, a simple yes or no is sufficient.

But is there a real difference between this cull and the one that Darwin Ortiz teaches in Scam and Fanatasies?

without giving to much away I can say that mechanically they start out the same since they are both based on the spread cull. I think that if you can build up the speed the roadrunner cull is the way to go but I think that the Ortiz cull could be easier to learn.

Culligula is in Kostya Kimlat's lecture notes, "Card Work, Card Play." A CD with video demos are also included with the notes and he demos, this routine during 2 different performances. This is a great routine, but takes a lot of practice and it helps if you have a brand new deck of cards while practicing.

Ryan, you asked for help on the roadrunner cull, but also try the Drop Cull separation taught in Vol 6 of the Lennart Green set (called "Green magic"). The idea is very intuitive and the separation is quite fast.

Kind of funny how the most expensive stuff always have the word "only" in front of the price.

You're getting ten-years of blood, sweat, tears, and
creative, imaginative work, beautifully presented and filmed.
In my book no matter the price, that is "only"
and frankly, priceless!

It looks like I'm 10 years late to the party. But I do have a few questions regarding this cull if anyone experienced care to address. In culling a four of a kind, what are you supposed to do if one of the wanted cards is the very first card on top of the deck or the second from the top?
