There is a lot of info on the Videomind series in the Café if you search on it and doing so would answer all your questions.

The 3 dvd's are separated into parlor, close-up and stage effects. The close-up effects are definitely good for only a few people. Most of the parlor effects can be done for just a few people as well.

Like most mentalism, the effects in general are not technically difficult but will certainly require practice.

Greg Wilson's trilogy is one of my favorites. Can't go wrong with him. Osterlind is one of the best mentalist. Paul potassy isn't well known but his presentation skills are out of this world.

Joshua Jay's Talk About Tricks DVD set has to be one of the best values in magic. I wrote a full review on my blog recently:

Michael Ammar's Easy To Master Card Miracles is another great value. Greg Wilson's On The Spot is a good resource for those wanting to learn some impromptu magic. The first time I saw the video as a beginner, I was blown away. Bill Malone's On The Loose and Malone on Marlo sets are both packed with great material. I was a little disappointed with Here I Go Again in comparison, but there's some great stuff on that set as well.

For those that are interested, I'm in the process of reviewing my top 5 DVDs in depth on my blog. Talk About Tricks was the first in the series. Some of them are represented on the list above, but some may surprise you. Check it out at

Check out my Main Event project (DVD or Download).

I am LOVING Daviid Roth's Ultimate Coin Magic DVDs. I'm very curious to know who his "helper" is in the explanations section. I know his name is Jeff but he seems to have absolutely no personality whatsoever...I've never seen someone look like such a robot before.

Does anyone have all the DVDs in the collated list I wonder? It would be helpful if people posted roughly the number of dvds they own (a collection counting as 1), so that others can get some idea of the breadth of experience of the poster.

I haven't seen everything out there by any means, but if I had to forget it all and choose DVD's from my collection I'd use to start over from scratch with, it would be these (in no particular order):
1 - Daniel Garcia Project (What an awesome project that shows the evolution of a magician's creative abilities over time.)
2 - Paul Harris True Astonishments (it's got something for everyone)
3 - Inside the Mind of Garrett Thomas (some real hidden gems in there)
4 - Osterlind's 13 Steps (easy mentalism)
5 - Greg Wilson's On the Spot & In Action (*tied for me as I first got them together*)
6 - Eccentricks by Charlie Frye (just plain fun!)
7 - New York Coin Magic Seminar (all the coin craft you'll ever need)
8 - Dan and Dave The Trilogy (teaches some beautiful card work)
9 - Sponge by Jay Noblezada (who doesn't love sponge balls!?)
10 - Banachek's PSI or Marc Paul's A.C.T.S. of Mentalism (more mind reading)

Those are some of my most important favorites.
