Why hasn't Earl Nelson ever made a video? And why no video clips of Jimmy Grippo?

I am working on a Jimmy Grippo video that will be out hopefully by Christmas. I have extensive performance video of Jimmy that I hope the magic community will enjoy. ;)

Earl Nelson did release some videos back in the 1980's. The ones that I remember were "Variations", "Earl Nelson Workbook Video", The Double Lift and The Pass.

I had the Double Lift and Workbook Videos they were on Beta and I lent them to some one and never got them back. They were excellent though and I wish I still had them. I believe you had to buy them directly from Earl and I purchased mine from him at the NY Magic Symposium held in San Francisco.

I have a copy of Earl's video on "The Pass" that I purchased in Hollywood at a local magic store many years ago.

Videos I would like to see...I wonder if any good film exists of:

1. Stewart James
2. Jim Ryan
3. Eddie Fechter
4. Ross Bertram
5. Matt Schulien

They would all be fun/inspirational/educational to watch.

Hi Robert,
A couple of videos of Ross Bertram are currently available (A1 of L&L, I am not sure). They are made from old films made by Ross and his wife.
