Hi all, Do any of you magicians out there have any of these Mark Wilson videos in your magic collection. Mark Wilsons Inexpensive illusions. If you do are they worth a purchase. Thanks

I have the first two. It is very interesting to see how they put together illusions that could be made up very inexpensively and practically.

The illusions they show on these tapes are made for limited use. Since many are made of cardboard, they won't hold up to heavy use. You could definitely use the ideas to make more durable versions, using different materials.

A key part of the tapes is the thought process that went into presenting the illusions. They show how the presentation makes the effect look good, despite the inexpensive materials.

Are these video tapes of the Illusions that were presented in Mark Wilson's Complete Course In Magic?

I think a few of them (I have Volume 1), like the Victory Carton Illusion, came from the book, but I think all of them came from the TV show. Excerpts from the show are used to show the performance.

If you shy away from using inexpensive stuff in your shows, just remember - Mark seems to have done pretty well with them.

He had to go inexpensive because their budget was not all that much when they were doing tthe show.

Instead of Cardboard, check out a material called 'Gator board'. It is a foam core with a wood surface. The ends can be covered by glueing cloth over them, or they sell a plastic spine that fits over the ends. With care they will last a long time. They can be painted with latex paint.

There is also a product called coreplast. It is an extruded plastic version of cardboard. It eliminates all the warping worries of cardboard and stands up to use and abuse alot longer.

These may be good for beginners and children shows, but nothing strong enough for me to use in my shows.
