I hate to sound like a wiseass, but - It's about an hour long and teaches basic card technique.
It's highly regarded by most magicians
Like everything Mr. Kaufman puts out: Professionally made and presented.

As I stated on another topic: It was the first video I watched after taking about 8 years off from magic - One of the few videos I will recommend - though I have hundreds - I normally only use videos in accompaniment to books by the same performer ie. - IMPOSSIBILIA
If you can find it - Buy it
