The advertisement for this DVD set begins with the following claim: "Neal Scryer has been described as the most influential mentalist since Annemann."

Before I read this ad, I had already discovered that the hype in this field was serious. But I had NO idea it was becoming this epidemic.

Ray, same here.
It appears to be a flash link,
I was able to see the link using a flash browser, but it says video not found or access denied. Smile

George, why don't you purchase the DVDs, study them carefully and then get back to us with your informed, expert opinion as to whether they're the real deal or merely hype. I hope that you're not seriously suggesting that Osterlind, Banachek, Salem and others prominent in this art are colluding to hype these DVDs.

While I agree with the hype in this field, not a bad statement in the blurb IMO. I'm not aware of ANY creator that has written more effects and routines for mentalists than Scryer. Also, his influence is with every performer that I'm in contact with.
He's a one man jinx.

Pretty amazing, glad we have him.

Sam, you summed it up nicely and professional.
It's unfortunate that when some of the top hitters in the craft come together, the project gets slammed and instantly is considered hype. However, I think we are truly blessed to have such graceious teachers who are willing to work together to make a new future for our art. And pure jealousy has no room amongst the ranks of professionals.

Sam and Darrell:

Please reread my post. I said that the lead sentence in the ad way ludicrously hyperbolic.

1) That is NOT saying whether the DVD's are "the real deal or merely hype."

2) That is NOT slamming the project or calling the project hype.

I have noticed, of course, that some notable mentalists are commending the DVD's as worth getting, but there is no evidence in what they wrote that they had in fact viewed the DVD's at the time they endorsed the project.

I own and have read two of the Scryer books, Black & White and Carnival of Secrets. Some good stuff there but, so far, have seen no reason to relegate my books by Corinda, Maven, Osterlind, Cassdidy, Banachek, and others to the back bookcases in my library.

Let me say it again. I only wrote that the ad's lead sentence is over the top. (Surely mentalists can recognize such obvious misdirection in advertising!)

The Scryer material has never let down any of the working professionals. When you know how to perform, it is all solid gold material. If it were not so usable and sound, then I might be inclined to agree with those calling it "hype." The ability to efficiently effectively understand the practicality of his work is the current measure of a true pro. I respect the greats who have offered their support for this project, but standing alone, the Scryer track record is enough for me.

IMHO - The respect for Scryer's creativity is what separates the wheat from the chaff in the world of Mentalism.

George never said anything about the material,.
He commented on a statement in the ad that he feels is over the top.

Until the DVDs have been delivered and the material worked on, anything said by most of the membership is personal opinion based on the ad or pervious materials, and should be taken that way.

Andrew, is a wonderful performer.
But, I would love to see the Man himself (Mr. Scryer) doing this!
I never lay my claim to Mentalism, but I have learned so much from Neil & Richard on the subject.
It has helped me so much in the performance of 'Magick' ! (Bizarre/Storytelling)
And, Yes ... Mentalism and Mental Magic and Magic is used together in Bizarre.

~G

Of course, many in the Mentalism field have been there for help when needed to ! Smile
