Roberto Giobbi’s remarkable Card College books have become the groundbreaking course in the subject – an analysis of the art, science, technique and philosophy of card magic. Card College has changed the way a generation of magicians have learned card magic, and changed the way they think about it.
In this highly anticipated video project, Roberto’s Card College has been brought to a four DVD set, with nearly eight hours of material. Card College 1&2, Personal Instruction combines Roberto’s lessons with his performances, demonstrations and explanations. Here you have a chance to learn directly from Roberto. He explains the essential moves, the subtle touches, and gives amazing examples that will allow you to add these techniques to your repertoire.
As one of magic’s great teachers, Roberto will serve as an inspiration in your work. These four discs are unlike any DVDs you’ve ever seen, professionally photographed and edited to efficiently demonstrate card techniques, with clear close-ups and reverse shots, as well as expert analysis of every move. There are fundamental lessons for the beginner, and expert approaches for experienced magicians. Best of all, here’s a chance to meet Roberto, watch his presentations and benefit from his personal instruction.
On this four disc set, you’ll learn basic techniques like squaring, cuts, grips, dealing, breaks, spreads, shuffles, false cuts, card controls, forces, glide, glimpses, key card handlings, double lift and flourishes, the Hindu shuffle, and special techniques like thumb count, buckle, palm, spread count, top change, crimp, reverse, the classic force…. and much more. In the Card College tradition, Roberto teaches magic immediately, with astonishing routines, allowing you to see the sleights in action and put them to use in these effects.
Produced by Frankie Glass and Jim Steinmeyer, with magic consultant Richard Kaufman.
