Wow!

I've had this DVD since the spring when I got one from Helder at a magic shop where I bumped into him. I've only now completed watching it. I'd say I agree with most of the previous posters that this is one of the best card magic DVDs out in a while. If you haven't got it and you are a card guy (or gal, if such a thing exists), treat yourself.

This is one of those releases that will probably stay underground, but it is truly one of the most creative and commercial collections of magic I've bought. I can understand this not being for everyone. The production quality wasn't exactly top notch. But, while the quality was less than perfect, I thought a lot of care went into the production, so all of the routines were easy to learn and understand.

I was stumped by several of these effects, including the aforementioned sandwich routine which I am adding to my repertoire. But, I loved the patter for the effect and the CSI idea. Helder gives you a great kernel and its really easy to grow it out into a very clever, funny presentation.

The first time I watched this through, I thought it was only a so-so release, but in re-watching the DVD, thinking about the routines and learning them. If you weren't wild about this DVD at first, I'd recommend re-watching it with special attention to the Crime Card Trick, the Blank Deck Routine and Out of this Water. I think the latter is one of the finest OOTW routines out there and it will probably become my routine of choice.

Helder, does this mean that you have a new DVD released? If so, would you mind giving us some details as to where it can be purchased, what is it called, etc.?

Wondering if this DVD will be sold by other dealers never bought anything from Dan and Dave. Anyone have any comments on their store?

They are reputable and I'm sure their store is fine. Their DVDS in the past are sold elsewhere, though -- perhaps after an initial waiting period. I'd be surprised if you couldn't find this one in a brick and mortar store in the months ahead.

The massive content in this booklet should rename as a 'Book' by Helder. Helder's original web site was down for some time and this is only available through his lecture I believe.

Already placed order for red mirror and look forward to his new book release in coming soon Magic-Con.

Any one know when Red Mirror will ship order in November and got a e-mail saying shipping has been delayed into December?

Called Hocus Pocus a few days ago and they said they had no idea when it was even going to arrive. Can we enforce a rule that says a business can't charge credit card/advertise for a product if said product isn't actual on hand, much less have no idea when it's being released?

Until then, I'm gonna rewatch Helder's Small Miracles DVD for the 150th time.

Somewhere I saw posted that there was a printing problem with the packaging and it was being redone. That's why the delay.
