It's as if I've been struck by lightning. Super visual. I want to do this.

I wish ellusionist would be more forthcoming on what is covered. Not to mention they didn't check their math.

Funny that this comes out right after I order Lennart Green's Masterfile. Looks great and this kid is really talented but I don't think I'll be needing this. Unfortunately I don't think there will be much (if anything) that will be taught here that I can't just learn from Lennart Green directly.

Masterfile is great. Enjoy it!

This video looks like extensive variations based on two moves, but I'm sure it will find its audience as well. It does look beautiful!

Top shot with huge fingerflash...
Extreme overuse of snap deal...
And doing Lennart's routines with very very minor variations?!?!
All of this stuff is already published by originator! Why publish this?!?! Lennarts work is already extremely well covered by the master himself. Hopefully most of the profits of this go directly to Lennart. Sadly he is one of those guys who is too kind to say "no" if he was asked about this project

Agree with ya korttihai. I love these moves and have been playing with them for years. I don't like the "throw" type of action move with the top-shot on the trailer. That said, seeing this stuff again is magical and made me dig out his snap deal booklet, and DVD's. The snap deal coin production is really nice to watch, knowing that it is a bit angle sensitive. This kid does have chops. Mr. Green is such a master and nobody will ever duplicate his "casual/sloppy" style. One of my all time favorites to watch.

A post somewhere, a while back, mentioned he was quite ill. Any news about that?

Lennart has recovered, and participated in the recent LAP dvd project (and seminar last November) with Dani DaOrtiz.

I think the flashy video will introduce Lennart's work to a different generation who might not otherwise be attracted to the style of Lennart's act. That's okay. Among other things, he's certainly invented some amazing sleights.

Man, that "Cards to Coins" is beautiful, quite an idea using Lennart Green's brilliant move. You just know he's saying, "Now why didn't I think of that?" Smile

Looks like a nice piece of work from yet another young, gifted practitioner. Amazing! Smile

No review yet Cody I also have the EMC set which is great. You have too laugh, watched Korttihai in a waist coat! Slating this young Japanese guy. As Eugene Burger says be careful who your hero's are online. Could be anyone unless its a real name and we can vouch their expertise. Could be a builder who's learnt to talk like magicians and pretending he's a top magician.

Anyone who loves magic would love to obtain the skill this guy has.

Wont be back

have fun with that Top Shot I love that move very hard for me very small little finger and #####

Can someone who has his other DVD's, and snap-deal booklet, report in on whether there is much new info on this DVD?

Here is my review,
A study on Lennart Green is produced by Shin Lim Presents and features Takumi Takahashi, a student of Lennart Green, who really knows his material and has crazy chops. It has the usual Shin Lim presents film quality and both the trailer and the instructional quality is amazing. There is quite a few routines/moves taught on here, but I feel like they all fall into a certain category. The categories being Snap Deal, Top Shot, Side Steal, and False Cuts/Shuffles.
First off, the snap deal section. There is the basic snap deal taught first. It is a lot harder move then I thought it would be. I have never got any exposure to it before, and the slo mo’s helped a lot so you could see the finger positions and mirror it exactly. After that the variations such as the card change deal is explained, as well as the cards to coins. The cards to coins in my opinion is the hardest thing on the download. I got the snap deal down very consistently and smoothly, but am gonna have to practice that a lot more. I have only tried quarters but dollar coins will probably work better as they are a little bigger. 10/10. This is a utility move I will use.
The Top shot is the next section. Takumi teaches his way of doing the top shot, and it has a little bit more flare then a regular one which could be bad or good depending on your performance. For his color change using that it looked great, but just for the card production I would stick with the usual top shot. There are some outside the box ideas and for that I give it a 10/10
The next section is the side steal. It is the shortest section in the download but has a lot of nuances and subtleties that really shine compared to a lot of side steals. 9/10
The last section is the false cuts and shuffles. There were some of them that looked so good and I loved, and there were a couple that just looked not worth it and confusing, but to each their own. There are 2 that I am going to try to use, as even to practice them they fooled myself! 8/10
All in all this is the best download there has been in a while on practical usable stuff. I was a little weary of the price but it doesn’t compare with what you are learning. The snap deal section is gold. Great job to Takumi and Shin on this, and I hope to see more released by him soon!

Thanks for the info Cody. Been doing the top shot and snap deal for years but always think you can pick something up when you see a new set of hands doing things. Plus, have never seen the snap deal coin production. That is so visual, and I am guessing a bit tough to do!! Looks like a keeper. Thanks.

Cards to coins is also taught by Lennart Green in Volume 6 of Green Magic. It's a bonus routine called "xirtam". He teaches some variations as well so you can go back and forth between cards and coins. Vanishes, productions, transpositions, transformations ect.

I'm sure Takomi has some touches and nuances on some moves, but everything here seems to be taught by Lennart in one place or another. Though if you don't own any of Lennart's work then this looks like a nice little group of effects and techniques to pick up.

If you really want to up your game, pick up the whole Green Magic set.. theres an unbelievable amount of material on there. One thing about learning from Lennart is that he doesn't just use generic sleights and effects, so there is so much stuff that you'll learn which you've never seen before and probably will never find anywhere else. This download is only a small fraction of the wealth of knowledge you can learn from Lennart Green.

MSD921 The card to coin is pretty hard to do but it's definitely possible. jamo425 I don't own any of Lennart's material, but this is worth the price, there is quite a bit of material, but sadly since I don't own Lennart's stuff I can't compare the two.
