I had never heard of Irving Quant before seeing this DVD. After watching it, and hearing what he has to say, I definitely want to keep listening. Irving is a relaxed guy, who has a very casual performing style, and serious chops. If you session with a group of magicians, Irving seems like the type to just show up and not say a word until right before we all go home. He then does something that destroys everybody and leaves the room. The next week, everyone wants to be his best friend. If you are a card guy, and you buy this DVD, you will want Irving to be your new friend as well.
It’s hard to describe the key move that is focused on, but let’s just say that you will have a blast working on it, and you’ll actually be able to apply to effects for both magicians and lay peeps!
Now, since everything is focused around a single move, there isn’t a whole lot of variety as far as skill level. It’s all intermediate to advanced. That said, the effects are diverse enough, and the potential for more is apparent!
The DVD was produced by Dan and Dave Buck, so the quality is off the charts! They really seem to be striking a balance between ‘cool street magic’ and ‘real world pro.’
As for the actual effects, there is a real mixed bag. The technique is used for transpositions, controls, ace cutting, and just blind luck. Imagine being able to just chuck a deck to the table where it scatters into five packets, and when the top card of each packet is turned over, you have a royal flush! No gaffs, no rough and smooth!
It’s clear that if you are a fan of card magic, or if you are just a move monkey, you will learn a lot from Irving Quant!
Highest Recommendation! Five Stars!
