Join the magically creative mind of Ryan Pilling on a year-long adventure!
Ryan has been exercising his brain muscle for over two decades, creating magic tricks and original routines with wild ideas grounded in the practical needs of live performance.
His focus is on one thing; making magic play big. How can a trick be more visible? How can it make a bigger impact on an audience? How can it be more funny, more personal, just… more.
Magician In Progress is your chance to buy in to this process, to help Ryan create more magic, and share the results with you.

What am I buying here?
The matter-of-fact answer is that you’re buying a package-deal including all the magic I create and share in the year 2021. The catch is that it’s not done yet.
The bigger answer is that you’re becoming a patron of the arts, encouraging Ryan to create more magic, and supporting the work in progress.
What am I going to get?
Over the course of 2021 I’ll be creating a series of instructional courses and lessons spanning a wide range of my magical expereince from close-up magic, to stage routines. Making your own simple DIY tricks, teaching magic workshops, and even producing a magic festival! My objective is to create a record of my magic, and teach it such that others may pick up the torch and run with it.
I’ll be sharing complete routines from my professional shows; the handling, the scripts, and the reasons behind it all. How I use “Cards Across” to get an audience on my side, and why my “Bill To Lemon” (which is crazy simple!) closes every corporate show.
Ideas In The Making
The process of making magic is important to me. I want people to know where ideas come from, and why choices are made. As I share ideas in progress, I’ll be sharing the historic roots of the magic. I love finding hidden gems in old books and making something fresh!
As a MIP member you get exclusive access to book 1-on-1 jam sessions with Ryan via video calls. You can talk about the magic he’s working on, or better yet, talk about the magic you are working on! Get feedback, advice, and brainstorm ideas.
How is it all delivered?
You get access to everything in digital form. Complete online courses with video lessons, allow you to get all the details of routines. Some tricks will come with donwloadble files that will help you to print, or make the props at home.
You get access for life. Long after 2021 is over, you’ll still be able to watch all the lessons created in the year. Also, we try to make all content available to be downloaded and stored offline. (It’s important to us you don’t lose access to things if/when a website goes down… we’ve all been there, right?)
MIP members email newsletter will keep you in the loop on all the new stuff coming out each week.
Sounds fun, how do I sign up?

Some Courses Planned for 2021
- Giants of Magic: Karrell Fox – Simple magic ideas presented with a big personality. Ryan shares some of his own routines based on Karrell’s creations.
- Ryanvelopes – Tricky Envelope Workshop – A complete breakdown of how to make your own envelopes for switching, multiple outs, vanishes, appearances, and more. Including routines ready for the stage.
- Union Policy – A deep dive into the ups and downs of the ‘magician in trouble’ plot, with a routine that will keep your audience on their toes!
- Eight Robbers – A packet trick where the audience gets to create their own crime, and you predict the result! Includes cards you can print at home.
- And much, much more… I’ve got dozens of routines and courses I plan to share, but I’m not wanting to make this about promising specific things. It’s about supporting the process of making the magic!
As they are published, you can browse the listing of courses at Learn.MagicTipsAndTricks.com but you won’t be able to access the lessons until you join as a member.
Thank you for your support!
