Outline from the makers:

Alex Moffat reveals his most prized effects and takes you on a journey where he plays with your expectations. Remember, it is always expectation that creates the illusion...

Guestimate - The Magician accurately predicts what number a randomly chosen card is positioned in the deck.

The Moffat Double ó Fast and flashy. A superb barehanded production of two playing cards in the blink of an eye!

Catch Me If You Can - Head down, eyes closed. Get ready to catch a card as it's fired out of the deck. Instant and memorable.

Double Hot Shot - Taking the Hot Shot Production to a brand new level.

Barely Watched ó A playing card vanishes in your bare-hands and then instantly appears under your watch! A beautiful sequence that will get incredible reactions!

Mate - A card is freely selected from the deck. Right from the start, in his hand, the entire time, and the magician is holding a matching card! No forces and a completely free choice!

Deal Or No Deal ó From a shuffled deck, the spectator deals to his freely named card, then, unsuspectingly knows exactly where itís duplicate exists in the deck.

Mofusion - Possibly the best version of the fused signed card plot. The ultimate signature card routine.

Coin Punch ó Alex invented this when he was just fifteen. He still uses it in his professional work... it's that good!

Sh4des of Dobson - A three phase coin Matrix routine inspired by Wayne Dobson's version made famous on his television series "Itís A Kind Of Magic."

Almo Wipe Clean - Inspired by David Williamson's "The Wonderful Coin Vanish." The hands are shown empty front and back, to then beautifully produce a coin.

Catch Us If You Can - Two chosen cards instantly fly up spinning from the deck, landing in each hand. Attention grabbing magic at itís best!

Reboxed - A deck is removed from its case only to instantly vanish and reappear inside the card case which is in view the entire time. Superb!

Trio - Three signed cards vanish from the deck. One appears under a glass, the second appears under the card case. Now, incredibly, the entire deck vanishes and then reappears inside the card case, which has been sitting on the table throughout the entire time. The kicker comes when the magician takes the deck out of the box, spreads it onto the table to reveal the third signed card face up in the deck! A masterpiece of misdirection that will become the talking point of your act.

Broken & Restored Glasses - A borrowed pair of spectacles is broken and restored in a split second! A brilliant opener for the strolling magician

Plus Bonus Material:

One handed false riffle shuffle
Topit Discussion
In-depth look at the sleights involved

MagicWeek Comments:

"Illusion Through Expectation" - The title lost me, but the contents is great! 90 minutes of first class close-up magic, predominantly featuring cards. At the start of the DVD Alex teaches all the sleights involved in the routines. This is showy, strong magic, designed to entertain and impress. I guess this disc is aimed at the close-upper who wants to take their skill level up a notch or two. Filmed in the studio and on location. There's loads of material on this disc - and no waffle!

Highly recommended.
