The Trilogy

More Views

Dan and Dave have been at the forefront of their craft since they were only fourteen years old. They have helped mold a new genre of card magic, a style visually rich and direct. Their style and originality has received acclaim from such megastars as David Blaine and David Copperfield. When they were only 17 years old they performed alongside Guy Hollingworh, Paul Gertner, Chad Long and Bill Malone at the first MAGIC Live convention in Las Vegas, and were the only performers to receive a standing ovation. They were among the first to start a movement with card flourishes, also known as XCM (Extreme Card Manipulation) and cardistry with the release of The Dan and Dave System in 2004.

This collection contains a vast array of magical effects, flourishes and everything else their minds have conjured up. From beginner to professional, these DVD's contain something for everyone. Every effect is broken down step by step for a seamless learning experience.

Over 6 hours of material explained in detail with multiple angles, on screen text, and slow motion replays.

Many of us are enthralled by the abilities of real magicians. We aspire to do with a deck of cards what they do. We want to do it beautifully and with finesse. It is possible, but not without hours and hours of practice. I bought the Trilogy years ago, and have practice the handling and sleights therein whenever I had a few moments during medical school––on christmas break, status post a hard exam, after a 30 hour shift while sipping a hard drink, etc. What have I mastered? I probably can't say I've mastered anything, but I have expanded my understanding and repertoire of card flourishes and tricks more than I thought possible.

What brings me back again and again to a deck of cards? The challenge of course, but more importantly it's that I believe in "real" magic when I see it. In those rare instances, it provides a lasting, unforgettable memory. That is what the Trilogy is.

I'm not one for gimmicks. The Buck twins present nothing that could remotely resemble something gimmicky. They perform real sleight of hand, impromptu effects and flourishes you could do with any deck in any setting. That is real magic, whether it is a trick or a flourish. And it requires real work. It is something that when you have put in the time and effort, you can be proud of, because you have done something that makes other people feel more than a fleeting moment of interest. You have given an experience that other people will remember for years to come.

I love what is on the DVD set. Each effect, flourish, and utility is taught from several angles with detailed explanation. However, I would think of it more as a reference text in video form than a list of tricks you will learn over several months. You need to study it and keep coming back to it. Likely you will have much more time to invest than I do, and you will become a master of a trick or two in weeks to months. But I guarantee you will not master even the material on 1 DVD in a year. Which begs the question: how can you get years worth of material to become an advanced card mechanic for so fair a price?

This is a set of material worth working on, and it will reap benefits in so many ways. From the fulfillment of practicing in front of the mirror, the thought process of your sleights with your patter, to that moment you enchant a room full of your friends who bring up your tricks again and again to you like you weren't there, you will know you made the right decision to invest in the Trilogy by Dan and Dave Buck.

These 3 DVD's are essential to anyone who wants to learn hardcore and visual card magic and flourishes. Everything on this is taught extremely well from multiple angles and is very easy to follow along. Whether you're interested in card magic or flourishes, everyone will find something to use and to practice. Something everyone should have in their library. GET IT!

I honestly could not wait for this package to come. I bought the whole Trilogy and once it came I was glued, *CORRECTION, I *AM glued. I've learned every trick inside and out... Being new to flourishing, I've worked everyday. I practice the finger exercises ALL the time. This purchase has made me a better everything, in relation to cards. The Trilogy is a definite must have.

$85 is very fair price considering the amount of material in these DVDs. In my opinion, a few of the tricks are a little fishy looking, and would seem strange to spectators, but any issues could easily be fixed with a replacement slight. The "everythingelse" DVD was excellent, and I loved everything taught on that.

This was one of the SMARTEST purchases in magic I have made so far. I love this DVD! iI got it three days ago but it is sooooo awesome. It is totally worth it. You will NOT be disappointed!

The trilogy is the best purchase in magic that i have made so far. The tricks are so visually stunning and are all completely impromptu, the flourishes are absolutely incredible and the teaching for them covers everything, everything else is my favorite place to go for a bit of inspiration and flourishes 101 is a great basis for the beginner and will garentee the expert something they haven't seen before. I cannot give these dvds enough praise, incredible.

Visual, unlike ANYTHING anyone has ever seen. It's MODERN card magic at its best. Did I mention IMPROMPTU?? These DVDs, any of the 3.... will take your game to an unseen level. I use these everyday and the work speaks for itself. The instructions are straight to the point and the over the shoulder portions help. I've been doing D&D's sleights since the D&D System in 2001. And quite frankly their sleights and effects are the most complimented ever. I'd suggest you buy it now!

From these 3 DVDs you'll probably learn more than from any others. It's a great place to start, after you know the basics. (Don't know the basics yet? Well, no problem, you can click the "Learn" tab at the top of the page to learn them for FREE!) Also, on the "Everythingelse" disc you have the basic flourishes explained too. Of course, on the "flourishes" disc you will find some more complicated ones (still you can find here easier flourishes, like the Molecule 4 or very advanced ones, like Pandora. You'll learn what you like!) On the Tricks DVD there are a lot of different card tricks, again, ranging from the easy to the difficult ones. So, to conclude this review, I must say that the Trilogy is something to own for all! I really HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Trilogy, after a while you will see how much it will have enhanced your magic and flourishing skills.

I like all of Dan and Dave's flourishes so I got The Trilogy set. I've learned only the Molecule so far because all the other flourishes are hard, especially Pandora and Jackson 5 so I try to practice it every day and break down the steps. Playing it in slow motion would be easier. The tricks are easier to learn (I like them all) except Collectors because it's very confusing. Overall it's a great and powerful DVD set that will teach you a lot of things. Recomended for flourishers and card magicians.
