Iíve already posted this in the DVDís section, but didnít get an answer, so apologies for posting again here.

Does anyone know when the new Marc Spelmann DVDís are due to be released?

I was lucky enough to be at the video shoot a while back and was told it would just be a week or so. I keep checking Alakazam, and it still isn't even mentioned as "coming soon".

I appreciate that this will probably be sacrilege to say here, but having seen Marcís performances I firmly believe that this set will be right up there with Richard Osterlind's "Mind Mysteries", Banachek's "PSI Series", and Max Maven's "Videomind".

I can see you all cringing now. How dare I compare this pretender to the throne to the great Richard Osterlind or Banachek, and believe me I donít do it lightly. As far as I am concerned these two, and perhaps Mr. Maven, are streets above everyone else when it comes to Mentalism. They are truly Magic Heroes of mine, and yet the material I saw being shot WAS that strong that I feel I can compare it.

Maybe I am deluding myself. Maybe it just seemed that good, because I was there seeing it being shot. I accept that sometimes during a performance you can get carried away with the moment, but I know that when I came away from the day I was still buzzing in the same way I was after I had watched Richard Osterlindís Mind Mysteries, and Banachekís PSI series.

I really canít wait for this set of DVDís to come out. And not just to see the explanations, but to see the performances again. I'm just not sure why it's taking so long.

I haven't heard of Mark either, but from the material I watched we'll hear a lot more from him.

-----------------------------------

I believe the DVDs have been in edit mode for some time due to Mark's work schedule. I was also there and can only agree the material was awesome. The roulette with the staple guns totally fooled me as well as the kicker with the bank night routine which IMHO is the best version of the bank night theme.

I'd love to ad the roulette routine to my act but have to wait for the DVDs as any mistakes could be dangerous. Peter told me they are genuine ungimmicked staple guns, so me thinks I'll wait for the explanation.

I must admit that The Staple Gun Russian roullette routine was great. It's one of those routines you can have some real fun with the multiple spectators helping. It has just the right mix of fun and fear.

Played in the right hands this would be a killer Smile

Hi,

Thank you all for your interest. We are currently editing the Spelmann DVDs. We should have these on our site to pre-order at the weekend. I must say I have never seen so many strong effects on one set of DVDs. Well done, Marc!

We are expecting the finished product in eight to 10 weeks. I really cannot wait!

Which effect was the one with the Incredible Chair Predictions? I am familiar with Kurtz's but Marc's was completely different?

I read the contents over at Alakazam, and this sounds like another must-buy set of DVDs. Smile

Untouched sounds like something I'd love to learn...all of them do!

Untouched (as I now know it) is brilliant. When Marc moved the fork in the glass, I was dreaming up numerous methods and I thought I was close but I was totally floored later in the bar.

Marc asked me to check his hands and then told me to place an object on the table. I chose a book of matches, and he again had me check his hands and then with apparently no trickery (trust me I was watching), he moved the matches clean across the table and instantly had me examine his hands again. Obviously there is a method, but it had me fooled more than I'd like to admit.

Apparently his chair routine is supposed to be cleaner than the one mentioned on another thread.. Not seen it myself but been told that it is exceptionally clean, has numerous kickers and is near impossible to back track for a lay person..

It is a very clean four-chair, four-person effect if it is the same one he performed when I saw him.
If you had a precious thing that could never be replaced, there truly was only one would you not cherish it everyday?.

Hi David,

You may not have heard of Marc yet but you will certainly be hearing a lot more about him after the dvd's come out.

As with all my products I stand 100% behind these disc's and I know I will be using a selection of Marc's routines in my act. In fact I may just call it the Spelmann act:)

Regards

Peter
