Yeah. I had a hard time find a doll's eye too, so I actually use an old photograph of my father "who showed me my very first card trick with this very deck of cards"

You can find the doll eyes at big hobby stores. The one I use to get them from was in San Jose, D and H Hobby I think it was.

Although I haven't watched all the explanations yet, I did watch all of the performances and I have to say that there is some really, really strong stuff on here. And, I have to admit, a couple of the routines fooled me.

Although some of the moves are standard Sankey moves and a few of the routines have appeared other places, there is plenty of fresh, really good material on this dvd.

For those that have not purchased a Sankey dvd in while, you might want to consider picking this one up.

Off to watch the explanations...

Oddly enough, the one that fooled me the most was the one with a principle used in one of the very first tricks I new. Presentation is everything. The effect by the way is Third Eye. I honestly did not know how he knew the cards.

That actually fooled me at first too! I had to think about it for a few moments before I slapped my forehead and said, "Doh!"

Terrible review, you just cost me money! Smile

I won't do it like Jay and will come up with my own handling ( you can do a sort of HEIRLOOM type effect with it ).


Never ordered from Sankey before directly, do you have to be a member? I do not see the special, but maybe is it not posted eastern time?

This effect is essentially a slightly different application of Jay's Nailed!

Actually, I think it's very different than "Nailed!"

I love "Photo Finish" as it's such a great application of... Well, I don't want to give the trick away. But it's very strong.

Um.... no it isn't.... It's nothing like nailed at all actually. The two tricks couldn't be further from each other.

A little disclosure before posting your review would probably have given it a little more weight. The conflict of interest is something that should have been mentioned earlier. I did enjoy reading your review, though.

I own both Nailed and Hemispheres DVDs and both share correlative in conceptualization and even the patter that Jay talked about on Photo Finish are similar in "Nailed." Certainly the method is different, I agree.

I highly disagree with the statement about a conflict of interest. Jeff is a worker. He knows commercial magic when he sees it. If you knew Jeff personally (which over the past couple of weeks I have talked to him fairly extensively) you would see that he is all about integrity. He's not going to come on here and pimp a product he doesn't stand beside.

Who cares if Jeff has any "weight" as you put it with Jay. If he had input on the dvd and stands by its quality, then his review is accurate. It would be different if Jay was on here talking about his latest dvd being the best, but to have someone who has one or two presentational ideas mentioned in the crediting, it is totally different.

Based on Jeff's review I picked up Hemispheres and found that his review is spot on.

Photo Finish could have been marketted seperately. If you like Heirloom
and want to make it stronger without having all those cards in your wallet, check out photo finish and combine the two ideas.

It comes with a photo card, but I made my own.

I'm not sure I follow. Just because he said thank you in the credits, doesn't mean my review is wrong. There is no conflict of interest. I don't get any money or anything from the sales of the DVD.

Had I started the review by saying, "here's a review of a DVD that Jay mentions my name on" Then followed that statement with the review, I believe that the review would not have been perceived as accurate but rather as a bias.

Maybe that would have been a good thing because then less people would have bought the DVD, thus allowing less people to be doing these effects... Less competition for me.

Whether I was credited for helping with an effect or not, the review is honest. Those who own the DVD will vouch for that.
