"This is the ultimate course for young people who want to make money performing." -- CW Rainwater, beginner who made over $ 18,000 in three months doing magic.

"My first question was, "Is it worth $ 50?" Joe answered that question for me in the first ten minutes. This is THE most comprehensive course on balloon sculpture ever produced. It could easily have been a four volume set. Joe teaches you everything you need to know to do this professionally, and you'll make back the price of the DVD in one gig!" -- Maxwell Murphy, Penguin Magic

"This DVD is the final word on one of the most rewarding arts in the world. Joe takes you from an interested hopeful to a black belt in balloon sculpting! From basic balloon fundamentals to advanced knuckle busting masterpieces, you'll learn it all!" -- Noblezada

"I wish I had had this DVD earlier in my career. If you're willing to put in the time and make the calls, the teaching in this DVD will save you countless hours and make you thousands of dollars." -- Steve Chezaday
