If you’ve seen Alex Geiser’s magic with coins, odds are you’ve been impressed. After you witness The Prodigy, you’ll be blown away. The Prodigy is Alex’s most closely-guarded routine, crafted and refined over a number of years, and shown only to a select group of people. By seeing this DVD, you become one of the chosen.

With a wave of your hand, 4 coins instantly and silently appear on your outstretched palm.

You then slowly and carefully make the coins vanish one-at-a-time. Finally, the coins reappear in an equally miraculous manner.

There are no gimmicks, no extra coins, no smoke, and no mirrors. Just 4 coins and 2 hands.

    Being that we just had a wave of ethics posted about copyrights and such I figure I will enter my opinion on “The Prodigy”.  First, if you are buying the routine for $29.95 and want to perform it exactly like Alex than so be it.  If you think you are buying a secret that hasn’t been posted a 1000 times in other publications and DVD’s you are wrong.  This is why people get pissed off, people make a routine of old moves and then market it, people buying it think they will learn something new not just a routine of moves that have been around for the past 100 years.  I am sure some unhappy buyer will be posting this on the newsgroups.

    As far as testimonials on Alex’s site.  If you are a magician and have no idea how this was done then you are an idiot!

    Alex has an excellent routine, but same old mechanics.

    Very true Banister. Especially children who are just being introduced to the art would be vulnerable to remarketing like this. It’s a shame that there isn’t a recognised body that creators became members of that would state standards for effects being released. This would create a symbol of legitimacy that the consumer could depend on. Effects that didn’t bare this mark could then be considered “buy at your own risk”. A regulating body for example could stipulate that members agree to acknowledge the original creator or acquire permissions of use where required. Not sure if I’m way off on this…but, it’s just my thought on lack of regulation within the industry.

    I agree Snow, it would be nice for some type of approval.  I read too many reviews where the magicians friends are writing the reviews or voicing how great it is in different forums.  Funny how they quiet down when you ask them their affiliation with the magician.  It is the younger/newer people that get burnt looking for the latest and greatest.

  • SNOW WHITE

    Yes, definitely the young and new to magic…which is a shame. I very much agree. I can’t really blame the creators for asking their friends to post reviews though. Though most people read reviews knowing full well they could be fake, people still seem to be influenced by them and if a product has no reviews, then people assume it’s probably crappy. Trouble is, even if someone is happy with an effect, they are unlikely to sign on and post a positive review if they have no affiliation…reason being laziness and no motivation. Doesn’t mean the effect isn’t good. So, creators turn to their friends and family to get the reviews started. I can’t blame them for this really. But, it really is too bad that there wasn’t some kind of ‘standards’ symbol.
    p.s. SNOW is replacement for DVCPRO :-)

    Glad to see you around DVD/Snow.  I agree, I would have my friends and family posting reviews as well anything to market the item.

    I hate leaving reviews as well, even if I like the item.  you will hear about it if I dislike it though LOL!

    I generally like the reviews in Magic magazine or Genii where it is the same person month after month giving the review.  I am sure someone could be influenced by a big ad campaign though.
