Shinanigens by Shin Lim

Prepare yourself to delve deep into the realm of visual sleight of hand magic. With 27 impromptu tricks and over 3 and 1/2 hours of detailed explanation, this 2 disk DVD will take you on a path of eye candy madness.

There are insane multi phased color changes to possibly one of the most visual deck appearance one will have to see to believe. Included in the DVD is a gimmick which will allow you to perform the appearing deck. Here is a small taste of the affects you will learn:

ANARCHY - this is one of the most visual and cleanest deck productions of all time. Imagine clearly holding a single card, and with nothing but a small shake of the wrist, a full deck of cards seemingly forms into your hand. You can now show the audience a full deck of cards. In this DVD, Shin teaches multiple variations and handlings (such as making the deck vanish using the same gimmick), as well as how to apply the gimmick to any deck of your choice. This trick alone is easily worth the price of this DVD. Comes with gimmick.

SHINAG 2.0 - this is one of the most visual and cleanest card productions ever seen. With just a mere spring of the deck, the selected signed card shoots out of the center of the deck. No strings, no magnets, nothing. Completely impromptu and insanely clean. Transfusion - Two cards are selected. One is placed in the center of the deck and one is placed on top. Both cards face up, so the audience sees everything. Everything is fair. But then, with just a wave of the hand, both cards change places in the cleanest manner possible. No angles to worry about. No tough sleight of hand. After watching the performance you will want to perform this every chance you get.

SHINSANITY - After producing 4 aces in the most visual manner possible, the magician then proceeds to have a card selected and then lost. He then fans the four aces very cleanly, and holds them with his fingertips. With no funny movements what so ever, and under impossible conditions, one of the aces invert. It turns out that the ace that inverts is the suite of the selected card. But when the magician pulls out the inverted card, he turns it around. IT IS THE SELECTED SIGNED CARD.

The COON - Imagine having your spectator's signed card placed in the center of the deck, out jogged. With no movements what so ever, the signed card begins to eerily rise to the very top. No gimmicks and it's completely impromptu. You have to see it to believe it.

    Felt like an advertisement

    I bought this because i like Shin Lim and because he's a great card handler, having said that, there are two things (three really but ones personal) that i didn't like about this dvd. 1. a lot of the times, he would tell you "oh, i learned this in dan and daves dvd. so you can learn it there" or "i learned this from card college, so if you wanna learn how to do that go there" or whatnot. im only an intermediate card handler so maybe thats what was wrong there, is that this dvd is meant for expert card handlers. 2. But, i felt that most of the tricks he showed i wouldn't perform ever. they felt angle scary and meant for one or two people. not a crowd like i like to do. A lot of the dvd felt kinda rushed and kinda like "hey, i wanna make some money lets put this out there." not to bash on shin cuz i think his card handling is down right awesome, i just feel the dvd shoulda been put better together maybe. 3. my personal issue is that he bashes on daniel garcia at one point ;) and since daniel garcia is like my favorite it was just like "oh now im annoyed" but thats just me ;)

    Buy This!

    Great DVDs by Shin Lim. Not for beginners but totally worth it for any intermediate/expert card junkie. If you have seen Trilogy by Dan and Dave Buck that would be a good starting block to help you in tackling Shin's newest DVDs. I could honestly seeing people spending the price of these DVDs just for "Anarchy" alone.

    Great DVD

    I was debating on whether or not to get this or 52 shades of red. In the end I chose Shinanigans because it was based on much more on sleights. This is not a trick you would want to buy if you're a beginner. Many of the tricks include things like the snap change, card fan, card spring, and palming so if you have those down, this dvd is great to learn some tricks that will blow people away. Keep in mind that Shin is not the best teacher and these tricks are not something you can just watch and go perform right away. This dvd requires you to invest a lot of time. There are over 27 effects that he teaches including the last trick anarchy, which is an insanely clean deck production however, it does (like most if not all of Shin Lim's tricks) require you to build the gimmick. which I don't mind because the building process helps understand it's limits but if you find it troublesome, it is not for you but don't let that stop you from getting the dvd. This doesn't teach his magic routines because that was not the intent of Shinanigans. His goal was to get these out there so that you can incorporate into your routine. The tricks mainly revolves around card productions, and color changes so if that's your thing, buy this now! All in all it was a great buy and hope to use these in my magic routines after mastering (hopefully at least one) them.

    WORST TEACHER EVER

    The tricks are cool, but they are only good for vidoes- more than half the tricks you can't do in front of an audience, it's too ‘angle sensitive’, like shin says. But the main reason i give only one star is because he is absoltuely the WORST TEACHER EVER. His video for each trick is ten minutes long and the camera is pointed in front of him, nut at the magician's perspective. it is very hard to figure out what he is doing looking at that angle. shin goes through stuff so freaking fast! I was just ready to start when he moves on to the next step. he never, EVER elaborates on ANY move, especially the good ones. He never thinks about his learner's perspective and every video is literally useless. For example, during the teachings of Lumix, Shin obviously forgot that where the camera was because he did the card flick thing with his hands blocking the camera, with the cards behind his hand. I had absolutely no idea how he did it, and he never elaborated. Immeidately, he moved on to the next step, so i was stuck there. I want a refund NOW. I've spent this much money on two ****** DVD's, and I literally did not learn ANYTHING from this guy.
