With the rise of subscription based magic content, I decided to try one or two of them each month. Then I thought I’d write about them here. Not really reviews, just observations. I’ll bump up this post whenever I update it.
What: magic product review channel on YouTube
Price: members section for $1.99/mo.
Who: David (dono his last name yet) is a total pro. Uploads 2 videos per day for the main channel, then an additional 2 per week for the members. That’s a lot of content. He also does giveaways regularly.
Thoughts: I think it’s totally worth the support. He’s trying to hit 50k followers this year, so if you’re not subbed, go do it now and consider becoming a member. He’s very objective and clear in his reviews, and wants to help you make the right purchases, including recommending other review channels. Seems like an awesome guy. Would be cool to be his buddy.
What: card tricks/moves/theories/ on Gumroad
Price: 2 tricks each month at £12.99/mo.
Who: Christian Grace of SwitchOne/LevelOne fame.
Thoughts: Well structured, thought out, full card routines. Goes over handling, method, presentation, theory. He’s a great teacher and clearly puts a lot of thought into the material and how to teach them. If you’re a serious card worker, you’d get your money’s worth and more.
What: quick visual magic for social media or camera
Price: £20/mo or £99/yr
Who: Luke Oseland.
Thoughts: This was one of one of the first ones I tried out. When I was subbed, he was doing 2 tricks each month. From what I remember, it’s a lot of simple DIY, and a good amount of them are released products. Plus he started early on, so it’s quite a good deal for over a year’s worth of content if this type of magic is your thing. I think you also get a discount on the products on his site too. He’s got nothing on this sweet visual, though..
