Hello folks. I just saw a clip of Mr Ouellet on YouTube performing close-up sleight of various things.
I love this guy and have recently got his Close Up illusions book and it is such a delight to read. He was a very creative mind. Someone who thought differently to your average magical thinker, in my opinion - Which is what I usually say about Jerry Andrus too.
I digress!
Can you point me towards any video/DVD that Mr Ouellet performed on, be it a teaching video or performance?
I would hope to find something where he is teaching some of his own sleights, as I imagine he loved to talk about them and how they evolved (which I always find very interesting).
If there are no teaching videos though then I simply want some video of the great man performing because he was superb and there's a dearth of him on YouTube. I have made the assumption that that is due to there not being much of him on video...am I wrong in this assumption?
Thanks in advance.
Paul.

There's "The Very Best of Gary Ouellet," three-DVD set. I don't think they are available as a stream. The DVDs are excellent.

There's a companion video to his "Close Up Illusions" book where he shows how the sleights look from the spectator's point of view. I don't think it was ever released in DVD format and I don't see it for sale anymore. Maybe watch eBay for a copy to become available.

Gary was the best. Close Up Illusions was my very first magic book many moons ago. Great book and Gary was super nice to deal with.

I first saw him on the Dai Vernon Revelations series and could see he was a friendly, likeable guy. But I didn't realise he was as creative and his ideas quite so original as I discovered upon reading his book! I bet 'Close-up Illusions' was a great introduction to magic. Smile

I'll send you a PM. I have a couple of videos that he made and you're right, they never came out on DVD.

Are there any GO books or lecture notes on his stage illusions?

He did the same for his book "The Pass" - made an accompanying video (VHS only, I think) for the purposes of illustrating sections of the book, not educational in itself (ie not much good standalone). I couldn't get hold of it for love nor money after I got the book, and eventually gave up trying. I didn't think of eBay, though - I might renew my hunt!
