Instructional DVD for Miser's dream?

Discuss your favorite platform magic and illusions.

Postby Umpa Duze » 08/30/11 02:04 AM

Hi All,
A part of my show calls for a Miser's Dream effect with about ten coins produced from the kids in the audience as "tax." I suffer from some arthritis in my hands and this limits the range of techniques I can use. I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a DVD which illustrates a wide range of techniques for this specific effect. Any thoughts would be helpful.
Thanks,
Umpa Duze

Check out Levent's "Ultimate Guide to the Miser's Dream."

Another Master has a DVD out on Manipulation and the DVD has a section on the Miser's dream. I don't have it but it could teach you a thing or two, hopefully some easy stuff you might use.

Here's a link.

I hope it proves useful.

Levent's dvd set will give you more than enough material to evaluate the different routines and develop your own.

Another thought is that there is a good routine in BOBO's Coin Magic using a coin wand and tray.

It might be an option if dexterity is a problem.

Chris Capehart's Miser's Dream dvd will give you exactly what your are looking for. If necessary, just change up the palms to your ability.

Hi All,
Thanks so much for all of the help. I really appreciate it. I think I best wait for the Levent's DVD and then see if there is something else I need.

Again, thanks so much!

Hi All,
I just wanted to say how impressed I am with the Levent's DVD. It is just the sort of straight forward presentation of the options in producing the Miser's Dream that I needed. Thanks again to everyone for their help.
