Reflection by Bill Goodwin DVD
- Send to a Friend
An exquisite selection of eleven ingenious effects from one of our era's finest card magicians, Bill Goodwin. Included is material culled from his hard to find lecture notes as well as several effects never before published. This is the first time a collection of his secrets has ever been released on DVD.
Using only an ordinary pack of cards, discover the secrets of a true sleight of hand artist and experience the deviant card magic of Bill Goodwin.
Oxnard Split: A highly visual handling of Paul Harris' "Las Vegas Split." A Four transforms into two Twos followed by each of the Twos transforming into two Aces.
With over 2.5 hours of performances, in-depth instruction and the complete history behind each routine and sleight, Reflection is not simply a DVD on tricks, but an important course for the advancement of your card magic. Shot in High Definition with multiple camera angles. Includes a 10 page booklet for reference and complete history of each effect.
In this DVD, Mr. Goodwin teaches a number of his pet effects that have served him well for many years. He is well prepared, relaxed and he does a very good job of teaching this material. He diligently provides attribution for all of the effects.
The DVD boasts first class production values. It was shot in high definition with multiple cameras and is well edited. In addition to shots from the crowd’s perspective, you can also view the handlings from the performer’s point of view. This is a very helpful feature.
A nine page companion booklet written by Mr. Goodwin is included. It cites the history and credits of the sleights and effects taught on the DVD. This is a very informative booklet and provides much additional value.
All of the effects require an intermediate to advanced level of technical proficiency. And they are worth it!
This DVD sets a high water mark in terms of the quality of material, level of instruction and production values. All DVDs should provide this much bang for your buck. I applaud Mr. Goodwin and the Buck brothers for creating the best product that I ever reviewed.
This disc is first-class in every measure. Its no nonsense design, as well as its excellent video and sound, serve the material and Mr. Goodwin quite well. In addition to the credits and historical information that Goodwin conveys during the lessons, there is also a printed booklet included with even more background and references. A printed booklet with a magic DVD?! And it's entirely devoted to furthering knowledge?! Bravo, indeed.
If you buy Reflection, the only thing you'll find lacking is your own ability to make these tricks look as effortless and magical as Bill Goodwin does.
