What Is A.T.S?
(Advertising Truth System)
Ever wish there was a way to know what product was for YOU?
Introducing The Lost Art Magic Advertising Truth System.
This two tier grading system will let you know if there is a product designed for you and your unique skill set or if it is something you will want to work up to in the future.
Ideal for those who generally perform for family and friends, but are still passionate about the creativity and thinking behind the art. These products only require a basic knowledge of magic and offer complete routines with interesting takes on existing plots, gaffs, or techniques.
Out of This World
Oil and Water
Designed for reliability and consistency. This is field-tested magic that’s engaging, angle-proof, and made to be done over and over again for crowds at a gig. The product could be a gaff or technique, but it’s ultimately constructed for the Worker in mind.
Move Monkey/ Hardcore
The moves and effects in this section may be difficult and angle sensitive (unless said otherwise). In exchange for your dedication, you’ll end up with something unique that can create astonishing moments no other traditional method can accomplish.

The second layer is a 5 point system to show technical difficulty. 1 being the easiest and 5 being the hardest. This is represented by bubbles under the above images.We created these levels based on the AVERAGE magicians’ skill set. For level one, we would teach you all of the techniques as if it were learning magic for the first time. For the mid level, we would expect you to have a basic working knowledge of Bobo’s or Expert Card Technique. On Expert Level 5, you’re already a bad ass. This level is for ninjas and ninjas in training.
