World's Greatest Magic: MacDonald's Aces - DVD
Imagine the best magic, the best magicians, and the best producers all in one place.
Imagine no more...
If you could have one set of magic DVDs, this would be it! This benchmark collection features just about all of magic's most enduring and classic effects and routines. It's a fabulous compendium with many of the top masters in the world of magic teaching their handlings and routines for some of magic's classics. Linking rings, sponge balls, metal bending, cups and balls, thumb tips, Zombie, color-changing knives, and many, many more topics are all gathered in this one terrific DVD reference set. Each volume covers a specific subject and features new, old, and sometimes rare footage by some of the top video producers in magic.
There are many who would argue that the Ace assembly trick that has come to be known as MacDonald's Aces is the strongest card trick you can do for a layman. Though you may have a different opinion, you just may be tempted to change your mind after witnessing the six world-class performances on this volume.
Leading off, Michael Ammar presents an easy-to-master, yet extremely effective, version of MacDonald's Aces while Johnny Thompson offers a take that intimately involves the spectators. John Mendoza is next with the approach of a classicist while Alexander deCova embellishes his interpretation with an amazing - and amazingly simple - four Ace production. Rising card star John Guastaferro offers up two versions. The first features complete vanishes of the Aces rather than a transposition and also supplies a strong presentational hook while the second is the perfect solution for performing this extremely strong card effect for a much larger audience. Lastly, Martin Nash dons his "Charming Cheat" persona and removes the Aces one at a time right from under a spectator's hand.
Once again, MacDonald's Aces is one of card magic's rare feats - a genuine jaw-dropping miracle - and on this volume, you'll find seven of the finest treatises ever created.
