Happy Holidays!

By The VI Team - Saturday, December 25, 2021


In 2014, R. Paul Wilson and the Buck twins made a movie. Not just any movie. An incredible love letter to magic, Our Magic.

They toured the US interviewing the best magicians and asking them about what magic is, and what it means to them. 

Over 90 minutes, you’ll see our heroes remind us all about what makes magic so special. 

This holiday season, we’ve gifted this film to you to stream for seven days. 

One of our core values is that Vanishing Inc. should always strive to improve the art of magic. We strongly believe that watching Our Magic will inspire and motivate you. So, we’re giving you the chance to watch it for free

Not only that, but this is a movie you can enjoy with your friends and family - you can give them that rare peek behind the curtains of the world we all hold so dearly in our hearts. 

Put the popcorn on, snuggle up with your loved ones, and enjoy Paul Wilson’s passionate and heartfelt movie together. 

This blog post will do a vanishing trick in 7 days.

Thank you Vanishing inc! What a gem this program is. At 72 years old I have been a combat medic, Master Stained Glass Craftsman, Product Photographer, and Graphic artist. I have learned something about art and craftsmanship over the years that the physical skills must be supplemented with something more....something intangible. Now at 72, with arthritic hands, I have started to study magic. As with anyone with a new endeavor I have ordered lots and lots of stuff. And after ordering lots of stuff I learned that the method to most tricks is maybe 10% of the trick. The other 90% is in this documentary and books such as Josuha Jay's "How Magicians Think" among many others. The presentation is so much more important than the trick itself. That is the secret to good magic that I have learned.

I bought the DVD set back in 2015, and now I can’t watch it because all the material is made nowadays are downloads, so the computers don’t even come with a CD/DVD reader anymore. And Vanishing Inc just made my day with this! Thank you so much for this gift!

Thank you Vanishing, Inc for your kindness in sharing this. Also, thank you to everyone else involved with this film in its making, filming, directing, production, and providing it for free during this season. Your kindness, giving, and overall generosity is inspiring. I appreciate it. May your generosity, in some way, be blessed.

I love this movie, but I have to ask--and pardon me for demonstrating my ignorance--am I the only viewer who wonders why Ricky Jay does not appear? Or Jeff McBride? (And I think Lawrence Hass has a brilliant definition of magic...I kept expecting him to be asked.)

It's a shame this won't run on broadcast TV--give people the opportunity to see a thoughtful, intelligent discussion of magic. Of course, the average attention span being what it is...

That having been said--I've watched it twice, and hope to watch it again. Thanks for the gift.

Thank you for sharing this "thought-piece..." As a life-long admirer of magic (and former pre-teen magician) this documentary really resonates.

Thanks so much for making me think of why and how I do my magic. The film is helping to elevate the art to what is should be.
