Hey everyone, I'm looking for ideas for a great visual, 15-30 second trick to put online as a video. Close up preferred. Just something that pops and maybe has a bit of reposting potential. Ideas? Thanks in advance!

Panic by arron fisher, this doesn't include having a card taken which is what you want to try and avoid.

Why on earth do you want to put a magic effect on YouTube?! Bragging rights or something?

Learn, practice, rehearse, and THEN perform for real, live people!

Thanks for the ideas! J-Mac, never said U Tube, for my own site. Just want to keep attention in a short attention span world.

I'm a big fan of productions. But when you post online I'd assume you will get people playing it over and over and pausing it, if possible, to try to catch you. Your clip would have to stand up to scrutiny.

If possible preforming in front of people and getting their reactions makes for a great video. I've always thought people laughing and smiling says more about your magic than the slights you do.

Good luck.

Magic was meant to be performed live. Two of the best magicians I've seen have no videos available online, by choice. These are the kind of magicians I aspire to be like.

My buddy Eric Stevens has some nice short flashy YouTube vids.

Ok, I have compiled a short list of very visual effects and to be honest, SOME of them look better on camera than in the real world. I think they will suit your video perfectly:

Hawk/Xtension- Alexander Kölle

Mickael Chatelain- Ink

Matthieu Bich- Edge

Rizki Nanda- Jumpink

David Stone- Window

Marcus Eddie- Empty

Wayne Houchin- Distortion

Jesse Feinberg- Animate and Restore

Menny Lindenfeld- Self bending paperclip

Mickael Chatelain- rewind
