Vine Star

about Zach King

American Vine star, film-maker and YouTube personality based in Los Angeles, Zach King is most known for his “magic vines” — six-second videos digitally edited to show as if he is doing magic. He calls his videos “digital sleight of hand”. He began posting videos on YouTube in 2008 and in 2013 he started posting videos to Vine.

Although it seems like he uses many special effects to create the “illusions” in his videos, Zach explains that in reality it is rather to find the right point of the video to combine the first part with the second, so that the connection is fluid. He and his team are so meticulous in matching the last frame of the first segment with the first frame of the second segment that locating the right time and creating a fluid connection is the main part of their work.


Zach made his account on Vine on September 9, 2013, when he saw that many of his friends had an account on the social media website. After creating an account on Vine, he decided to create one Vine each day for the next thirty days. After the success of his first few Vines, he decided to continue with creating and posting new Vines.

In 2013 he won YouTube’s NextUp Creators contest. He and his wife Rachel competed in the competition show The Amazing Race along with other social media stars in 2016 and were eliminated in 6th place through 9 legs. In an interview, Zach said that producing a Vine usually takes upwards of 24 hours, with three to four hours of filming.
