ReviewIt's finally here. The fourth installment in our fantastic and enlightening voyage with Michael Vincent. Join Michael & Chris as they guide you on your journey in the Quest For Mastery.
The Classic Magic of Michael Vincent Volume 4
The Quest for Mastery Collectors Edition (Limited To 1000 Units)
*The Collectors Edition comes in the same beautiful style case with sleeve as Michaels other vols in this series. When the Collectors Editions have all sold out the DVD's will be produced in a standard 4 disc DVD case.
On this new 4 Disc DVD set from Alakazam Magic, Michael Vincent brings his passion for Magic and his expert showmanship to a brand new conversation. This project explores how Michael thinks about taking the classics of magic and breathing new life into them.
With a set that runs for over 6 hours, The Quest for Mastery is all about elimination - removing the inessentials until all that is left is an elegantly crafted mystery - this process can take years to arrive at. Inspired by the philosophy of Robert Houdin, Dr. Hofzinser, Dai Vernon and Darwin Ortiz, you have an opportunity to discover 'The Vincent Touch'. This is Michael's unique perspective on classical effects and how to make them relevant for today's modern audiences. This is a master class in magical construction, design and artistic performance.
