I've been watching this DVD solidly for the last two weeks..

...and I have to say I LOVE it!

"Smoke" has become a regular part of my routine.

His take on 'Out of This World' is wonderful... very brave. I would tend to be inclined to agree that the effect looks tidier with only two piles of cards.
With a borrowed deck, this is the way I'd perform this effect.

In a more formal situation, I tend to use Greg Rostami's fairly clunky 'Cosmos' because I like the feel of an event that comes from sitting two people at a table opposite one another. I find it always gathers a crowd.

Wow!!!
I have just watched this and it blew me away. I am not really a card magic fan as i tend to do do just the odd trick in the pub and it would nt be natural for me to carry a pack of cards. That said this has made me think!!
I m a Derren fan anyway but never knew just how good his card magic is he is World Class!! The routines just blew me away!!
I thoroughly reccommend this to anybody !!

Hello everyone,
I am desperate to get hold of this video however I notice it seems to have disappeared from his website. Any ideas where I could get hold of it?

You could buy it from me if you make the right offer! 8)

In that case I wouldn't take it off your hands (or from anywhere else) for free!

Ha, I know this isn't the first, second or probably not the sixteenth review of this dvd on this forum site, but I do still like to read them everytime. I do love the dvd, and unlike you guys, I don't think I'd ever sell it. I don't know about you all, but I always find myself in a funny situation because when ever I talk to someone about card magic for a length of time this dvd comes up and I am torn between saying go and get it, it's the best, and shutting up. I normally choose the latter of course. I always have to go back and watch it through though, just for the enjoyment.

This is truly amazing, and I'm especially impressed at how clever & simple to perform his version of "Out of this World" is.

Disappeared? Yes, it's magic! :shock:

Why don't you introduce yourself and I'll tell you where it is available legally. Usually magician's don't request advanced items like this in the first post.

My copy arrived today, and some of it is completely unwatchable

Audio dropouts, glitches and the DVD generally unable to find chapters

I know this isn't correct but after watching some of the poor quality clips on YouTube was wondering if it is almost deliberate??

Are you watching closely? Then I'll begin...

It's probably some subliminal head-f**k Derren decided to put in, let us know if you start having blackouts/believe you're in a zombie game/rob a security car etc.....

Its actually becoming very difficult to contact anyone about my faulty DVD

Every email address I try on the Brown website bounces back, and the only telephone number on the site is always is never answered

Any ideas on this one guys?

If not, I'm going to sell my story to the Sunday Sport "Derron Brwon stole my money!" :mrgreen:

Derren (because im on first name terms :wink: ) is an avid Twitterer. You could try and drop him a message on that?
