Eric Chien's last release COIN caused a sensation amongst coin workers around the world. VCM is his latest release which features his original VISUAL CARD MAGIC with routines that he has been performing for the past six years and won numerous competitions with throughout Asia.

Eric's card magic is direct and to the point, and this is the first time he has shared his card work with the magic fraternity.

This DVD wasn’t really wasn’t for me, I was hoping for more – but I don’t know why – the add copy tells you exactly what you are getting, in the end it’s a few oil and water routines and a couple of collector’s routines with some card productions thrown in.  Eric is a good teacher and these are good tricks – fans of these two plots will get a lot out of these I am sure.
