Camera Tricks (To Perform Online)

By Ellis James - Tuesday, April 28, 2020

Who doesn’t love some eye candy? Visual magic is a fantastic way to grab any spectator’s attention and pull them in. Not only that, but visual magic is perfect for virtual performances or even Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok.

Pellikaan Package - Peter Pellikaan
Honestly, we could fill this whole list with Peter’s material. All the routines use just a few cards to create miracles for maximum impact. These are great to perform for the camera, but look just as good in person. Buy the whole bundle, or check them out individually.


Counterfeit - Josh Janousky
If you could really do magic, you’d probably use it to create money. (Which you’d then use to buy magic books, we assume) Counterfeit is just that. Imagine changing a handmade drawing of a bill into the real deal!


Oxnard Split - Bill Goodwin
Bill Goodwin is a beast with a deck of cards. We’ll be honest, this isn’t an easy trick, but it may be one of the most interesting ways to produce the aces. The performer takes a four out of the pack and visually splits the four into a pair of twos. Without missing a beat, he splits the twos again, this time into aces!


End-for-End - Michael Feldman
We love Michael Feldman, and you should too. End-for-End is magic using something you have with you at home: A Pen. The routine is visual, quirky, and a whole lot of fun to perform!


The Reformation - Guy Hollingworth
The Torn and Restored Card is a classic of magic, and if you’re not familiar with Guy’s version, you’re missing out. The Reformation is a visual restoration of a signed, torn card. Yes, it is signed, and the signature is visible the entire time.


Spring St. Aces - Steve Forte
The card spring is a beautiful flourish, that in many ways can establish your skill with a deck of cards. Steve Forte (who honestly doesn’t need to establish his skill with a deck of cards at this point) has found a way to take the flourish and turn it into an ace production. This is a great way to show off your skill!

I would like to know your thoughts on the Danny Orleans virtual magic book. It sounds like it could be designed more for beginners, or am I mistaken.
