Pocket Power The Video

by Jarle Leirpoll

We wrap up the video portion of this month's column with Jarle Leirpoll's new companion video to his excellent book Pocket Power. Three effects are explained: "Toilet Paper to Egg," which puts Juan Tamariz' Double Crossing the Gaze Switch to good use; "Norwegian Travellers," a nice variation of the classic Vernon effect; and "The Almost Ultimate Newspaper Tear," which combines the "Water in Newspaper" effect with Gene Anderson's "Torn and Restored Newspaper." Jarle's method for preparing the newspaper is very ingenious. Jarle also demonstrates and explains his "No Gimmick Bill Switch," which is an effective handling of the Koslowski "100 Dollar Bill Switch."

In addition to these effects there are a variety of useful hints and tips for using your pockets to ditch and retrieve items. As I mentioned in my review of the Pocket Power book, Jarle has some good work on this subject, and this video gives you a chance to see him in action. The video is well produced, and Jarle does a fine job demonstrating and explaining the various effects and techniques. Recommended.
