Wayne Houchin’s Art of Magic is a groundbreaking instructional DVD on classic and contemporary magic tricks. This 120 minute - performance and instructional DVD features a unique look at the current state of magic. Including interviews with David Regal, Aaron Fisher, Dan and Dave Buck and (of course) Wayne Houchin. The interviews are combined with live performance footage of WH performing both on the street and at The Magic Castle - from South Beach, Miami to Hollywood, California.

WHAT'S ON THE DVD?

- A 60 minute documentary on the Art of Magic featuring David Regal, Aaron Fisher, Dan & Dave, and WH.

- An in-depth 60 minute teaching session during which Wayne Houchin explains how to perform 5 of the effects that were featured in the documentary. You will learn:

TWISTING THE ACES - Wayne Houchin's handling of Dai Vernon's classic effect. The four aces magically turn face up one at a time. Clean, beautiful, and amazing.

FRENCH KISS - You ask someone to sign a playing card - the card is then folded up and placed in your spectator’s mouth. You take and sign another card - which you then fold up and place in your mouth. Impossibly, the 2 folded up cards switch places. Your signed signed card is in the spectator’s mouth and her card is in yours. Simple and powerful.

WH RING+STRING MYSTERY - A piece of string visually penetrates through a borrowed ring. New, unique, practical, and FUN.

MATCH BITE - A lit match is extinguished on your tongue. The magician then bites off the burnt end, chews it up, and spits it back onto the match. Impromptu and uses only one match.

CARBON PAPER - An incredibly powerful effect contributed to AOM by Jay Sankey. The back of a playing card is burned - your spectator FEELS the burn from that card travel through their hand and end up on a signed card that has been between their hands for the entire effect... leaving the originally burnt card completely unharmed. Performed and taught by Wayne Houchin.

The documentary and instructional portions of this DVD attempt to capture a modern look at the Art of Magic through personal anecdotes, advice, and live performance. The interviews touch on everything from the presentation of magic to advice for beginners, and why magician's fail. The effects taught are practical and suitable for both beginners and the intermediate student. Welcome to Art Of Magic

The June issue is featuring Wayne Houchin.



By the way these 3 effects on the DVd are fully explained in the last issue of GENII magazine ( June 2009 ) on pages 61 to 71 with many pictures:

-TWISTING THE ACES - Wayne Houchin's handling of Dai Vernon's classic effect. The four aces magically turn face up one at a time. Clean, beautiful, and amazing.


-WH RING+STRING MYSTERY - A piece of string visually penetrates through a borrowed ring. New, unique, practical, and FUN.

-MATCH BITE - A lit match is extinguished on your tongue. The magician then bites off the burnt end, chews it up, and spits it back onto the match. Impromptu and uses only one match.

I wish the effect with the candy vending machine would have been explained. I understand that someone else has a similar effect, so he did not include this.
Does anyone know if this effect is published anywhere?

Why would you want to spend money ($35.00) on a DVD that 3/5 (60%) of the effects are found in a Genii magazine for $6.00???

Plus you get a well-written Interview of Wayne in that magazine as a BONUS.

Redsixer,

Oliver Meech has a similar routine in his book, The Plot Thickens. It is a great book, I recommend you check it out.

Salby, the reason I am spending the $35 is to hear wayne go into detail about each effect and to see his performance. Personally I'm putting wayne in my fav 5 so it's worth it for me to hear him speak to each effect. In addition to the tricks you get the doc. so it seems like a lot more value then 3 tricks in $6.00 magazine.

It is so much better to watch a trick explained in a DVD than a book.

I hope Houchin's Art of Magic DVD includes "real time real life" footage and spectators, respectively. Editing footage of a performance because of challenging spectators causes me to wish I could see how professionals handle difficult situations / spectators.

Has anyone seen this DVD?
Why is it that on one side of the world a person looks at a picture of the Grand Canyon and says, "it looks so real." At the same time on the other side of the world a person looks at the Grand Canyon and says, "it looks like a picture."

I did French Kiss twice so far and it has gotten one of the best reactions I have ever seen.
This is going to be in my routine for a long time.

I agree with you there. I've used it in all my walk around gigs the last two weeks and it's been one of the favorites.

While it's Sankey's and not Wayne's Carbon Paper has been a good worker for me as well.
