I watched the first disc of this set last night and MAN ALIVE Colin seems to have shared some of the most incredible, high callibre mentalism that I've seen on any DVD, anywhere.

Whether you're a performer, a hobbyist or just want to know in which direction modern mentalism is headed you're going to be overwhelmed by the fantastic quality of Colin's thinking.

With Mark Elsdon by his side for the detailed explanations, Colin leaves literally no stone unturned. The explanations are almost a performance unto themselves, sharing additional ideas, alternative thoughts and routines.

I reakon this is due to be a classic.

All I can say is that I will forever be grateful that you are sharing your ideas with us Colin . . . the DVD set is absolutely astounding.

Many thanks................
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 genuinely believe that this DVD is one of the best mentalism DVDs released in the last ten years. It is full of innovative new ideas as well as complete reworks of old ideas to make them work in the modern day performance arena.

The 'Bookless Test', 'Result' and the 'Lottery Routine' are amazing pieces for stage work. Then of course there is the wonderful 'Serial Prevaricator' that can be used for the perfect no props walk around effect.

Personally, though, the effects were not the highlight of this DVD for me. The really amazing things were the in between pieces, the subtle subtleties that were not mentioned but can still be picked up by watching how Colin handles the effects. This can include blocking, phrases and timing.

Knowing Colin well, I often get the chance to talk to him and be inspired by his unique thinking. Each time we talk he always has something of value to say, even if what he says simply sets into motion a new train of though within me. Unless you are lucky enough to know Colin, this DVD is as close as you will be able to get...for now.

I for one think that the DVD is sold way too affordably. The material contained is worth a helluva lot of money, and much more than is being asked.

Cheers,

-Paul

Just to throw my two cents into the ring, it aint very often you find a dvd/boxset where absolutely everything is practical, informative and just plain awesome! usually they die down a bit in the middle or have a bit of filler but this is one of the few things I have bought that I watch on a regualr basis cause its just plain cool!!

Got this the other day- I really like it. Though I have only watched the first two DVD's, what I have seen so far is really good. Very practial and not difficult. Colin seems to be a very good teacher and presents clear explanantions on why he does each step. So far, for the price- this a REALLY good!

Not to mention that packaging and polish is the best to date. BEAUTIFULLY, cleanly and cleverly playful with the DVD layout inside the 4 disc set. Just awesome.

NFW,

Here is a link to our review. Opening Minds is very well done. The mentalism routines are well thought out and engaging and thoroughly explained by Colin McLeod including his thoughts regarding the psychology of the effect on the spectators.

I get cravings for the effects on this, I think, oh I remember Colin McLeod did something like that I'll watch it again

it was great, is great and will be great for a very long time

there are a few presentational bits I don't like 100% (asking a spectator a favourite TV show and other questions to give them a number doesn't seem to make sense) but method-wise it's super, but it's good to make up your own presentations anyway

well worth the money, there are a lot of DVDs a bit cheaper for single effects etc, but you get a lot of material here

if I lost my collection I would buy this again
