Normally you must be a Magic Magazine subscriber to view the video, but the first month is open to all.

In July 2011,Dr Shigeru Tashiro brought two of his magic students,
Masaya Yamane and Nobuo Kamizuru, to Las Vegas.
Dr. Tashiro booked sessions with me with both young magicians.
We worked at my studio. I was so impressed with them I wrote an article about our experience.
You can see their acts before we started working and the changes we made.
I worked with each young man for only four hours.
You can see the videos at http://www.magicmagazine.com/demos-downloads/directions/2011_09_masaya_before.html
