Having already used this, this is one item well worth playing around with and see what else suggests.

Just made up one of these for yesterday's gig in NYC. Unfortunately, the logistics did not allow for the requisite actions to take place to make use of the BP, but I'm sure I'll get another chance soon. The total prep time was maybe 15-20 minutes, and that was for the trial run. I'm thinking this should be down to about 5 next time around.

I think this little pad can play very big. I've already pre ordered the Doccinar because I want to learn as much about it as possible. I've used it in several performances and it works like a charm.

Hi everyone I wanted to post a couple of updates. All of you on the email list already know about the big sale. We have been keeping it confined to the list. In a nutshell we like to reward the folks that read our mails and buy our products. So unlike other outlets we discount on the front end. So early adopters make out the best. I won't go into all the whys of this right now. Docc does some of that on the Bachelor Pad Doccinar.

So here is the deal - the Bachelor Pad Pro Package is on sale for $10 off as we speak. That $10 discount is set to disappear sometime after midnight tonight. What time? I'm not exactly sure but it is automatic.

Second if you already purchased the Bachelor Pad there is a $10 coupon inside your member area. Get that coupon and combine with the early bird $10 off and you have $20 off the full Pro Package. That includes the book, Doccinar, followup Cellinar where you can ask questions live and get a recording after the fact. The package will sell for $47 once the price goes up. With the coupon it is only $27. But that ends sometime after midnight tonight. The coupon is good indefinitely.

Someone wrote me and asked if they could buy the Bachelor Pad just to use the coupon and the answer is "of course" and at the current price it saves you $3.

For those who have already purchased the Doccinar is uploading as we speak and should be available by morning. It includes lots of good information on devices like the Bachelor Pad, pre-show, presentation, and much much more. If you have been through any of the Doccinars you know what to expect.

Look for the Bachelor Pad Pro Package near the top of the page.

Thanks for looking.

ps - if you aren't on the email list you missed out on a free 5-part series Docc sent from Mexico on how to select and routine strong mentalism. It was really good. So if you aren't on the list what are you waiting for? Got to DoccHilfordProducts.com and sign up. It is totally free.

The Doccinar is up in the member area now. I scanned it quickly and there is a *lot* of information there.

I am sitting here watching the Doccinar right now, I am only ten minutes ing and Docc's only going over psychology and already I really like this. I will post up some more thoughts as I work my way through the Doccinar Smile

While I love the Bachelor Pad I must say I'm disappointed with the production of the Doccinar. The sound was virtually impossible to understand at certain points. I can understand a few glitches but this was too much. The sound was also out of synch with the picture towards the latter part. I don't know if this was only on my computer or it was the video itself.
I love Doc Hilfords work but this was unprofessional. When you have this many glitches it should be redone. Someone with Doc Hilfords reputation shouldn't put out such a poor production. I hope he corrects this situation and is more careful in the future.

I do agree with you Steve, but it's a good problem to have if you think about it. Those of us who work through the glitches get an extra bit of knowledge that most would take for granted and miss out on! As for the content, this is a real treatise on the art of preshow and honestly I agree with virtually everything that was discussed.

So Docc starts off discussing the myths of preshow and the mentality of different audiences as well as when to use it, there are some really great things said in here that I think most will simply ignore. Moral of the story, you have your research to find the mentality of your audiences outsourced based on years of experience by Docc. I personally love taking the hardest route and daring to be bold by mucking up constantly even to the point where I look like a complete idiot to find things out firsthand, but I still think the important psychological information disclosed here will help me in my journey.

Next Docc discussed the "irks" or preshow, construction of the pad and reset. Those of us who have done preshow only to have the person whip out a little slip of paper or forget what they were supposed to do know what those "irks" are. There is a little thing in here that I absolutely love, I can't say what it is but it ensure that both of those bases are covered as well as well as some other devious ploys that made my evil mentalist heart smile. In this section Docc also goes through step by step on construction as well as lots of different ideas on how to reset and whatnot. This thing is dynamite, just saying.

Ok, so you have stuck with me here and I will just sum the rest of the material up by saying "GOLD BABY". There are some bonuses including really different preshow ideas that are really different, stories from the field and of course Docc's Colours piece which is a cheeky little bit that is light hearted, but very powerful!

Great Doccinar, yes there are some sound issues, Dan and Docc clearly say that, but honestly it's not a huge problem and trust me the older ones had less production value so this is a BIG step forward. I am confident things will only get better, this is up there as one of the best Doccinars so far. Highly recommended to those of us who truly care about the effects we create for our audiences!

I loved the Doccinar. The sound was definitely out of whack. However, if you listen carefully you really don't miss any of the content. Good stuff. I'll be using this.

I would just like to add my praises for this release. My first Doccinar and I am impressed. The video was not out of whack for me, only the sound issues on a few parts which Docc clearly acknowledges and apologises for.

Some great ideas. I've been sitting on the fence on whether or not I should get a couple of the Doccinars. I'm glad I grabbed this one for sure. Lots of great stuff I will be using. Awesome to watch and a great personality.

Thanks Docc!

OnTiltSoon - Thank you - I will post that tip to the member area and alert Docc. It may help him debug things.

Brehan - what about Peso's? I'm not sure what you are asking. But I haven't been through the entire Doccinar yet.

Dave Nic - of course you should get some more Doccinars. They are all packed with good information from someone who has actually performed or knows someone who has actually performed everything he teaches. If you need help deciding which to get feel free to email me directly: Dan@DanStrange.com and I can give you some pointers. I know I may be biased but ask anyone who I correspond with and you'll find I strive to make suggestions that are relevant to you. Docc and I both believe if you take something and can actually use it you will be far better off than just some more information.

Thanks everybody.

This was also my first Doccinar, the sound issues did not distract in any way to picking up the valuable tips and insights to use with The Bachelor Pad. I was on the fence about buying this but I'm glad I decided to take the leap of faith in Docc's product. I very much like to acknowledge and to give positive feedback when I know I have got some great material to use. Coming from a working pro with a wonderful personality this is gold baby. I have much admiration for Docc's work.
Best Wishes,
Mark

I have bought a lot of Docc's stuff over the past while and I haven't found anything I didn't like

I do spend a lot of time deciding what to get, which I think helps me avoid any potential disappointment, but it all ranges from really good to absolutely excellent
