A collection of flourishes designed to challenge and inspire the contemporary cardist.
A production that started nearly eight months ago has in fact been in the works for four years. Michael's style is inspired from our own works found in The Trilogy along with such cardists as Brian Tudor and Kevin Ho. These aren’t cuts you’re going to learn and forget in a day. Each cut is vastly different from the other, giving you a diverse collection that will broaden your arsenal.
Solo is divided into three categories: Signature Flourishes, Bonus Collection, and Special Features. It contains over 90 minutes of cardistry training.
- In the Signature Flourishes section, you'll find ten unique flourishes: Arriflex, Ekklesia, Collective, Elysium, Twistor, Tidalwave, Reich, Reinvention, Mysterium, and Zero. Nine of the flourishes are two-handed cuts and one flourish is a single card flourish. Each flourish includes an introduction, performance, verbal explanation, and slow movement performance.
- The Bonus Collection includes four bonus moves: Upload, Skydive, Whirlpool, and Elite. These are short, simple flourishes designed to perform on the fly. Each move contains a performance, overview, and verbal explanation.
- A conscious effort was made to include as much special features as possible. What's included: Original Trailer, Seamless Motion, Jikh and James, Rediscover Identity, Solo Outtakes, Interview with Michael James, and Credits with anamorphic footage.
In summary, Michael James is a badass when in comes to Cardistry. Take it from us, the card flourishes explained within this DVD are top notch.
