over the past few years i have spent hundereds maybe even thousands on magic looking for those perfect effects for me, but have never found the perfect practical material from the likes that ive seen on the tv and on stage which kills.....

well i can now tell you that after years of searching for that worthy material.... i have come across the best purchase that i have ever made ....... 'opening minds , Colin Mcleod..


The material on this dvd kills and is exactly the type of stuff that youve seen well known "mind readers" perform...
for somebody who wants tp start and be amazed by mentalism, then go buy this dvd. you will 'NOT' be dissapointed.. Only had it at the weekend and have already performed 3 effects for family... and its like nothing they have ever seen me do before !!!!! they were amazed !!!

In total there are 15 effects on the dvd ... and all pretty much impressed me, although ive read some of the reviews for this dvd and great appreciation for an effect called 'lottery', but for me i thought this effect was one of if not the weakest effect on the dvd, despite all the rage reviews for this certain trick and even the thoughts of this from the dvd too. :-S o well,im sure others may like it.

But seriously i absolutley love the contents on this dvd, and ive even abandoned soem of my material that im using now from the likes of 'andy nyman' and swapped it straight for colins - same purpose but better handling, and gives me more confidence to performing..

by the way i do not personally know colin or alakazam magic !!

the dvd would be perfect if it wasnt for one thing............and for me that was having 'mark elsdon' sitting through with colin within the explanations... personally i just dont like the guy and i really didnt think he added anything of importance either, i just found him annoying.... give me marc spelmann sitting next to colin any day !!!

sounds very good, how much was it and where from?

EDIT: I see it at Alakazam for £39:95 so I guess thats the answer to my question unless you know of another price

I've just started going through this DVD set. It's clearly explained in a friendly and practical way so far. I'm enjoying it.

It's a great set of DVDs, I've plucked all sorts of ideas from those in the past :)
