Dan has also collaborated with many of today's top professional magicians, providing behind-the-scenes consulting for Jeff McBride, David Copperfield, Kevin James, and Keith Barry.

He's also starred in numerous magic instructional videos, including, The Close-Up Magic of Dan Harlan, Premium Blend, Pack Small Play Big, Ultimate Impromptu, Mindbogglers, Bandshark, a Little R&B, and SpeakEasy.
