The Genii Review
Genii Magazine is the oldest and most respected magazine on magic in the United States. It has been in publication since 1936.
In the December 2003 issue, Joe M. Turner wrote the following review on Oz's DVD, Stealing Pips.
Oz Pearlman is a young pro from New York City whose deceptive card magic is easy to learn, fun to perform, and magical to watch. On this DVD, Mr. Pearlman teaches a dozen of his most usable ?workers? for close-up card magicians.
The effects are varied, ranging from predictions to vanishes to transpositions. Some of the plots are classics, but the additions Mr. Pearlman contributes are substantial and worth preserving.
Mr. Pearlman executes his material with both passion and precision. His handling of the Bertram color change caused me to reach for the remote so I could watch it again ? in his hands, it truly looks like a camera trick. His explanation of the move is clear and through, as are all of his explanations. His ?IC3? is an ungimmicked handling of David Regal?s ?Triple Vision? which eliminates the need for gaffed decks and is probably my favorite routine on the DVD.
I will share a couple of reasons why this kind of DVD appeals to me. First, the magic itself is more than just changes in finger positions, phase sequences, or sleight substitutions. In most cases, the magic represents either practical original material, in-depth expertise on a particular sleight, or a variation of an existing effect that makes a substantive change in the routine, such as eliminating the need to carry a gaffed deck. Each of these qualities is an effective motivator that spurs me to try out a new routine or move.
Another important consideration is that the production values are high but they are not turned into the star of the show. I am certainly a fan of creative and theatrical approaches to training, but when a product?s style outweighs the substance of the material being taught, I lose interest quickly. Fortunately that is not the case with this product.
This DVD is a gem and worth your time if you perform card magic in strolling or other close-up environments. (Oh, and if you?re wondering, Mr. Pearlman?s first name rhymes with ?hose.?)
