We do not know much about Gregg Blade, but he has recently posted nine episodes of The Illusionist. He stars and directs the web series, which we are assuming is a school project of some sort. From the Flyers shirts and fact that he supports Union on his YouTube page we are guessing he is somewhere in the Philadelphia area. iTricks is all about supporting young magicians trying to get their start, so we are sharing his efforts with you.
The series has a few raw edges, but you have to give him credit for trying to figure out the ins and outs of TV magic. Anyone around iTricks can tell you how much work it is to create something like this and we tip our hats to him. We like that single camera shots are employed (and touted) as well as insets to remind the audience of selected cards. Also, there is a certain charm to the show… give it a chance.
If you would like to see more, you will find all nine episodes on Gregg’s YouTube page.
