Re: "Derek Dingle in Paris France" DVD now available in US!

I spoke to Alexandra Duvivier about the fact that the Jennings DVDs were available in the US, but the Dingle DVD was not, and now Murphy's is selling the DVD. So ask your favorite dealer for it!

Needless to say, I NEVER received a single issue of Arcane or Epoptica (he never published any after t...

They've already blown the fact that there are two sets of twins. I would have used this act for the finale, and used other illusions where the twins were used secretly for the earlier competitions.

Sankey's idea was an interesting one: he uses a rubber band around the center of the card, which has been folded in quarters lengthwise. This lets him use a Paddle Move.

That does not fall under the definition of a camera trick. It is a stage performance technique, sometimes used for close-up magic.
