Thanks guys for the reviews, keep em' coming, feedback is key when you're releasing products, I don't want to have an ellusionist reputation haha, should make clear real quick since Kyle mentioned the XTREME dvd, that was made back when I was like 17 for a convention for Harry Allan for a lecture I did for him and his convention. It was oroginally out on VHS and was filmed in a day and is not quite as entertaining haha. Its a 2 dvd set and I talk forever, a little too long and is for beginners mainly. The technical tosses doesn't cover really anything about dove magic other than training and sleeve tossing and dove holder tossing. It moves pretty fast, but that's not to say its not for people who don't body load. Even if you do birthday parties and prouce a dove from a dove pan I try to gear all my products to people who do everything from a dove pan to a full body loaded routine. I know not many folks out there body load so I want to be able to tackle topics for everybody. I hope I achieved that and that the little blips in the video and sock upppets and Bea Arthur's cameo aren't too offensive...haha...

Thanks again,

oh PS, I should clarify that just in case you're wondering I took off my magic products from my site, there is a portal link on the main page of, just scroll down but now you can get my stuff for magicians at:

don't mean to plug it but I've been getting lots of emails now that I redid my site so just wanted to help clarify, thanks again!

Hi guys,

Just finished watching the DVD and it was great. It had some great tips and was hilarious - especially the subliminal messages and the ending with the 'puppet'!

Can't wait for the next release. I am intrigued about what your I.H. looks like.

Well done Dan on another great product,

All the best,


P.S. I'm getting great reactions with your dove from sketch pad!!!

I would have enjoyed the dvd if it were not for all of the subliminal EMO messages that were programing me throughout the viewing. I ended up buying some purple hair dye and crying because none of the cool goth fashions would fit me at Hot Topic. I must say that the counter girl with the pink hair and multiple facial piercings was genuinely concerned about me.

Aside from my own personal issues, the dvd is very good. Dan's very relaxed presentation style was easy to watch, and he throughly covers how he trains new birds to learn to fly back to him. For me, this was the most valuable piece of the video, as it offers a practical, training routine for anyone new to dove work. My original thought was why do I need every bird to fly back to me? - but it is also about building trust with each of your birds, so that they are comfortable with you.

I also like Dan's honest, real world approach to his dove tossing technique. He spares no detail in showing the viewer exactly how each trick technique is accomplished. His very informal, personal style makes the viewer really feel like he is sitting backstage visiting with Dan as he explains and demonstrates the set-up and execution of the dove toss/trick segments. And he even leaves in the times that the demoinstration didn't work, allowing the viewer to see the pitfalls that some routines have, and how Dan works to overcome them.

I highly recommend this dvd to anyone interested in learning about training your doves, as well as dove tossing technique.
