I did not know that. No wonder we won The Revolution: they read the date wrong for the invasion;-)

Contents:

"Once in every generation is born an individual whose work becomes known worldwide as a touchstone for excellence. With the hands of an artist and the soul of a poet, Michael is just such an individual.

His sleight-of-hand is masterful, his presentations are inventive and his performances are the epitome of class and sophistication.

As the only magician in history to have won the prestigious title of "Magic Circle Close-up Magician of the Year" three times, Michael has spent the better part of three decades honing his skills to become one of finest magicians that Great Britain has ever produced.

This DVD collection showcases his world-class magic in front of a live audience and features some of the most stunning magic ever filmed. As you watch it, you will experience for yourself why Michael's stunning presentations are regarded by audiences and fellow professionals alike as some of the very best in the world today.

This Alakazam production is the first in an ongoing series... Lookout for further releases from "The Michael VINCENT Collection."

Contents

Disc One - Michael's Parlour Show

Routines Performed and Explained:

* The Intuition Speller - Inspired by an original effect of Harry Lorayne's, Michael introduces you to a machiavellian piece of misdirection which creates an impossible spelling effect.
* Kismet - Michael's impromptu handling for Al Koran's Double Thought, featuring a wonderful strategy of Dai Vernon and audience management.
* My Card, Your Card, Everybody's Card - The history for this effect can be traced back to Robert Houdin's "Secrets of Conjuring and Magic". Michael's handling and presentation brings this ancient effect right up to date for the 21st Century. This routine features Michael's handling for the obscure Second-From-The-Top-Change.
* The Amazing Discovery - This popular effect has made rounds in the last few years. Michael share's his professional presentation. His handling and performance tips elevate The Multiple Selection routine to another level. His performance in the live show was a tour de force!
* Plus bonus performances of: The Rhapsody in Silver, The Cups and Balls and The Knotted Silks.

Disc Two - Close-up Show in The Bar

Routines Performed and Explained:

* Brainwave "My Way." - This routine is one of the highlights of this DVD. International card expert Darwin Ortiz had this to say about Michael's Brainwave: "Sleight of Hand techniques have reached such a point, you'll never need to present the classic Brainwave with a gimmick deck ever again. This routine is just about perfect".
* Michael has taken Dai Vernon's "Brainwave" effect and turned it on its head into masterpiece of construction and design. With this routine, you will come to appreciate "The Power of Assumptions" and "Audience Attention Control". Also featured is an under used principle in magic, creating an effect in the mind of the audiences before any technique has taken place. This principle alone is worth the price of this DVD presentation for it opens up untold possibilities.
* Pandora's Paradox - There is a world of difference between a card trick and card magic. This routine pushes the boundaries in terms of what is possible with a deck of cards. With credit to Bruno Hennig, Tommy Wonder and Roberto Giobbi, Michael has taken the classic "Signed Card in Box" and amplified the effect with an elegant presentation and technical mastery, to produce an experience equal to any theatrical presentation. We think this routine will become a huge favorite.
* VINCENT's Aces - Featuring: The Ace Production, "The Rising Aces", 21st Century Collectors, Cy Enfield's Aces for Connoisseurs and The Henry Christ Fabulous Four Ace Routine.
* Foursome - Featuring Michael's handling for the Spread Cull.
* Match Made in Heaven - Dai Vernon's "Matching The Cards" meets The Aronson Stack.
* Prologue to Triumph - If you enjoyed Dai Vernon's original "Triumph", then you will love Michael's build up to this classic effect. This routine features some interesting applications for Larry Jennings's Larreverse and Edward Marlo's "One Hand Bottom Deal".
* Plus bonus performance only of: The Coins Across / Chinese Connection and a discussion on the inspirations for the routine including learning references. Also a bonus PDF teaching the Wild Card routine featuring Michael's breathtaking color change.

Disc Three - Sleight-of-Hand Mastery - The Pathway to Excellence

A discussion of how to improve your magic, raise your own standards and how to master and improve the basic techniques in sleight-of-hand. This is the beginning chapter in an on-going course in sleight of hand mastery with Michael VINCENT. We begin here with the basic foundations of card handling.

Michael will share with you his practice drills for:

* The Control of a Card
* The Double Lift
* The Palm
* The Top Change
* The Force
* The False Shuffle
* Plus bonus material: Michael's background and advice on mentoring.

Im very excited for this to come out. I have always loved Michaels magic so much and I can't wait to learn from him. I am most excited about the third disk with the lessons on all the basic techniques.

This set is exceptional. I was fortunate enough to watch an advanced copy recently. You are in for a real treat.

First, the DVDs are well produced and very elegant – reflective of Michael’s work.

Second, the magic is very strong, direct, well thought out, and elegant.

Third, the content is very diverse. You get insight into Michael’s parlour show, learn some of those pieces, learn some great close up items, and take a walk through some of the fundamentals of card magic taught in Michael’s precise style. The last DVD, in particular, was my favorite as Michael takes you in as if you were a student of his and teaches his thoughts and handlings of many fundamentals. This alone will make you a better magician.

Michael is a joy to watch as he truly loves magic, treats it like a true art, and performs like it is an art. He will inspire you to do the same.

I sincerely hope that you enjoy this collection of magic, it reflects my journey over thirty five years.

I look forward to hearing your feedback

Cheers

After my first initial first viewing of these dvd's, they are great, Michael goes into so much detail on each of the moves required and routines it is great! nothing is left out, I personally like the third dvd even though it covers the very basics of card handling etc there are some techniques in this volume that makes my current techniques much more elegant etc, hard to explain but wait till you see it and it will make sense.

I love the performances of the routines also very very polished as you would expect from probably the greatest close up magician the uk has to offer if not the world! yes Michael is that darn good!!!!
