Hi everyone, today I am going to be reviewing a DVD called uncaged by Finix Chan. It is presented by skymember. Its is a single DVD focusing on transposition.
So what is it about?
Well very simply put, it is an effect where two sealed gums pack of different flavors exchange places visually.
So what the audience see is and what they experience is their selected gum appear onto the performers hand and they exchanged places visually, and the audience is asked to take out the other gum that was placed in the back pocket the entire time.
I do like this effect.
However, keep in mind that it is not an impromptu effect. You do have to bring in something before the performance so that you can do this. For what it is, this is pretty okay. Instructions are very well produced.
This gimmick you need to make is not very simple. Instructions are easy to understand but it is quite taxing to do, as precision is required for it.
For what it is at USD $19.95 for four variations, I think its pretty good. Most DVDs are USD$30-40. I feel that this effect will play well on the street, and not much handling is required.
I give this a 7/10.
However, although chewing gum is banned in Singapore, similar concepts could be applied to sweets. Just that one of the variations where making the sweets jump to the top of the packaging might be difficult to be applied in this context. Overall, I feel that this would be perfect for people who like to perform for friends or even on the street.
