Urban Underground DVD

“Urban Underground” is an instructional magic DVD that Ning & I have released to the international magic community.

“Urban Underground” is a fully integrated and seamless formal close-up show that I’ve been developing over the last few years. In the current age of “Street Magic”, it is something completely different.

While many magicians offer close-up magic services in the form of roving entertainment, as far as I know, no one else offers a show like this and even if so, nothing close to this level of production and refinement in this part of the world. Well, that is one reason, the other is because I really like and am proud of the material.

I’ve developed a lot of routines with original handlings or presentations and since the dawn of my career, I’ve always wanted to develop a formal close-up show. I was influenced by magicians such as Albert Goshman, Paul Gertner, John Cornelius and Dominique Duvivier who have designed such shows.

As my primary work comes from stage work & illusions, I’ve had the good fortune to have the time and resources to develop this close-up show over a prolonged period. I have taken all the best material that I have developed over 18 years and produced the routines into a seamless production. Several of the routines won me different awards in the mid-90s including International Brotherhood of Magicans (U.S.A.) linking rings awards.

I have since reproduced all the routines, formatted the show and obtained most of the props needed for this show. The production of the show itself benefits from the culmulative experience of professional show producing for the past decade.

The DVD reveals all the details behind the techniques, methods, routines, presentations and set-up behind this modern formal close-up magic show.

I should mention that while the marketing copy claims “6 Blockbuster Routines”, there are actually a total of 11 different routines that I make-up my 6 routines. For example, in my “4 x 3″ routine, four different coin routines make up this act.

In addition, I also offer many alternative endings for some routines if they are to be used as stand-alone effects.

Besides the performance and breakdown explanation of the entire show, I also share how to market a formal close-up show in a market environment that is used to Street Magic and roving entertainment for events & venues.

The DVD closes with a candid discussion with Ning & myself on contemporary close-up magic and our take on mainstream media and public’s perception of close-up magic.

It is a jam-packed DVD if compared to the now-common “one effect”-type DVDs.
