(what does this mean?)
1. Self Working
Self working magic tricks are tricks that just work! They require no sleight of hand whatsoever. They are absolutely perfect for beginners. Desipite being super easy, we still recommend practising them in private first to perfect your patter and presentation.
2. Easy to Learn
These tricks are also beginner friendly, but there will most likely be a few sneaky (but fairly easy) moves to rehearse and remember before the trick is ready to be performed. Unlike self working tricks, these will require a little more confidence, but we believe in you!
3. Some Experience Necessary
Products in this category aren't difficult to do, but they will require some basic knowledge of the craft. If you know what a false cut is and can do a double lift, you've probably got what it takes to get value from these tricks. If you have no idea what any of that just meant, don't worry, you will after watching our beginners masterclass (coming soon).
4. Dedication Required
We always recommend practising your magic, even for self working tricks. But these tricks will require more than the average. Products that require some more advanced coin or card manipulations will probably fall into this category. Or tricks that need you to memorise a lot of information.
5. Serious Dedication Required
You're a serious magician if you're venturing into these realms. But it's true what they say; dicipline is rarely enjoyable but it is ALWAYS profitable. And boy, will you will reap the rewards. We salute you!
They say crime doesn't pay, but whoever said that didn't own Overdraft.
Overdraft is a set of precision engineered gimmicks that give you the power to perform EXPLOSIVE feats of magic and mentalism.
Meet your new everyday carry.
Overdraft's reactions are WILD; watch the trailer to see how you can blow people away (and it's very easy to do).
Paul Fowler is a working pro; he performs Overdraft in the real world for real, paying audiences. This means you can be confident that each and every routine that you will learn has been tried, tested and perfected. But it doesn't stop there; master mentalist Lewis Le Val will teach you even more invaluable routines and ideas for both mentalists and magicians alike.

You will learn how to make a banknote appear from between two credit cards, and later in the tutorial, you will learn how to produce an entire wad of cash! (Works with all currencies and denominations.)
You will learn how to make two credit cards switch places under seemingly impossible conditions. (Think the classic two-card transposition but with credit cards.)
You will learn how to visually "clone" a credit card, directly in front of your spectators' eyes. (Breathtaking pickpocket-themed magic.)
You will learn how to repeatedly predict which credit card will be chosen, long in advance. (Influence or empower your spectator.)
And you will learn how to apparently control your spectator's memory and prove it afterwards with a photograph taken on your spectator's mobile phone! (Possibly the freakiest effect on the project.)
All of these effects, and more, will fit inside a SINGLE slot in your wallet meaning you will ALWAYS have impossible, reputation-making demonstrations to perform at ANY opportunity without using any extra pocket space.
Each credit card is manufactured to the impeccable standards The 1914 is known for. Typically, gimmicked credit cards cannot be scrutinised by spectators because they don't contain real chips. But these do. In fact, the cards look so realistic, our original shipment was seized by port authorities because it was flagged as potential mass credit card fraud! (But fear not, yours will arrive without a hiccup and are 100% legal to perform magic with.)
Whether you are a magician, pickpocket or mentalist, Overdraft is a tool you will carry with you always.
Outstanding quality. Detailed tuition. Mind blowing magic.
This is Overdraft.
"I love this trick! It reminds me of the thief-style magic from Now You See Me"
Andrew Basso (The Illusionists, Britain's Got Talent)
"An alternative to colour changing knives that makes much more sense. A great gimmick that takes up no pocket space and leaves audiences amazed"
Damien O'Brien (Britain's Got Talent)
"Overdraft went straight into my wallet. My mind is bubbling with routine ideas"
