"this disk is a great introduction to Tom’s work and, most importantly, his thinking"
-Fredrick Turner, MyLovelyAssistantFull Review
Tom Stone is not only an extremely creative thinker and inventor. He is also a very entertaining and charismatic performer, who has been an underground rumor for years! Perhaps you have heard the buzz after his performances at Magic Castle, or after his lecture at FISM?
In this DVD, you will learn eight of his best routines, and if you like close-up and stand-up magic with a twist, you will not only have a good time watching, but also get a lot of inspiration for your own performances.
This DVD Features:
- A Toast for Charon: Silk, silver and a huge surprise
- Gold Wielder: Linking finger rings without a stooge
- Occhamman Now: "The Signed Card" - paperclipped!
- Time Operator: Time, space and a free selection
- The Hoarders: Interlaced action with cards
- Reality Glitch: Sandwich in an unexpected place
- Monty Walks Again: Personal valuables change places
- Ambivalent Traverllers: A journey into deep pockets
- ...Bonus section included!
Embedded in each piece is a strong knowledge of misdirection, streamlined technique and engaging dramatic plots. With a boldness that will make your hands happy, you will be able to get signed cards to appear in four different pockets with a minimum of sleights. Borrowed finger rings are linked together without any awkward moments. An isolated, paperclipped card transforms into a signed selection in the clearest version of Bro. John Hamman's "The Signed Card". In a stylish and elegant parlor piece, coins appear and fly through the air, ending with the spectacular production of a wine bottle. And a card trick comes together like a surreal and carefully constructed short story.
Jon Racherbaumer once said: "Tom Stone concocts eye-candy for the brain". Now you can experience the meaning of that for yourself. Enjoy!
