Then again, how about "13 Steps to Mentalism" -- you could sell a few with that title.

Dual ROY(e)alities (or Dual ROY(e)ality)

It could go like this:

DUAL ROY(E)ALITIES: 10 CHOSEN Mental Mysteries from Roy Yozevich and Roy Zaltsman.


(notice the reference to Israel.)

IMHO, you are going to have to go a long way to beat "Dual Roy-alities" or any derivative of Alel's great contribution as the title of the DVD.

Visually, I'd suggest having that be the title and then underneath that have a picture of one Roy looking into a full length vertical "mirror" and the other Roy as the "reflection" looking back. Have the mirror vertically plumb but at an approximate 30 degree "outward" angle (like the open pages of a book) so that both the Roys can be seen "together" (like have one Roy's left hand touching the "mirror" where the other Roy's right hand is. Above the one outside the mirror, have the word Roy and for the one inside the "mirror" have the word YOR (Backwards image of ROY) Have each Roy mimicking the same body posture of the other. Use an pallindrome not an ambigram; a pallindrome will stand out better and be easier to recognize and interpret.

Now, that said, if each of the Roys contributed an equal number of effects, the title might be "Duel Roy-alities" and both Roys might be dressed as gunslingers or some type of "combatants" (even if only armed with a clipboard or billets).

Instead of the Duel Reality combantants' posture and theme, if you were, instead, going for the more typicl "Dual Reality" theme, you can have each Roy kind of looking into/out of the "mirror" in wonder and/or puzzlement (and tentatively reaching out and/or touching the fingers of the hand of the other Roy as each "explores" the reality he sees in the mirror.

Just, IMHO, your mileage may vary.

I'm fine, Rick. Thank you for the comments.

BTW, I cannot get the thought of railroad tracks out of my mind. (the RR just keeps drawing me towards railroad tracks.) Mayvbe a title of the straight line (or track) to hard-hitting mentalism. Maybe have a train engine just about to crash into the endline of the station (the roundhouse?) and, in a mirror have ht perspective of the train about to enter the empty stage.

I discarded that idea when I saw Alel's excellent "Dual Roy-alities" word play.

I'm not suggesting that the RR track and the Dual Roy-alities cannot be used together but, I think they convey incongruous images and, as such, convey a discordant image. I'd have to think about the synthesis of the two a little more, but, my initial reaction is to use one or the other and Alel's Dual Roy-alities is the far better choice.

Take a "peek" at the intimate mysteries of Roy Yozevich and Roy Zaltsman:

effect 1
effect 2
.

.
effect 10

Effects so fascinating, you won't be able to look away!


Something along those lines. And the DVD cover could be somebody with an expression of amazement peering from behind a stage curtain observing the 2 Roys in their act.

Thank you all for your wonderful ideas. I really appreciate it.
If you have any more ideas, feel free to pots it or PM.
I'll process your ideas with Yozevitch in few days.

Someone PMd me asking what are the effects in the DVD.
Here is the list of the effects (the temporary cover attached). Hope it can help to think of some more good ideas for the DVD name:

Folded card in mouth – This is Roy Zaltsman's long standing opening act, which never ceases to confound the audience!

Stiff arm – Truly a case of mind over matter in this self persuasion effect; you won't believe it until you try it!

Q 4 U 2 - Two impromptu versions of the 'Question & Answer' effect. No dummy billets needed!

Annemann's Modified Switch, Zaltsman-style – Perform the famous one-handed switch, rapidly and right in front of their eyes!

Feminine intuition – Predict a randomly selected volunteer and the object which she thought of.

Just in your mind – A spectator visually selects a card, only to find that the card was never in the deck, but in his pocket all along…

Divine numbers – begin by revealing a sum of an unknown list of numbers written by the spectator, and top it off with a surprising prediction at the end.

Two secrets - A real magician-fooler! The mentalist proves that he knew in advance which card the spectator would pick and its exact location in the deck.

Headline prediction – learn the real work on a classic strong version of the effect by Roy Yozevitch.

Places – 7 chairs, 7 volunteers, exact match, and a prediction with a twist…

Gotta agree with "DUAL ROY(E)ALITIES" or some variant thereof. Great idea.
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.
