Hey guys...I've noticed the Fan levitation being performed by a few guys.This is the portable levitation, without a backdrop. Who makes these!?!?

Is this the one where the sides around the fan fall to the side leaving the girl floating above the fan? Usually a smoke machine is incorporated? If so, I believe these are made by Scott Penrose of the UK. http://www.stagemagician.com/illusions.html

The fan levitation (the compact version) was created by Markus Gabriel. (Markus & Trix)
As far as I know he never gave anybody permission to use his creation but you can always contact him and ask, his web-site is: http://www.zauberei.ch

You've described an effect that was performed by the Majestix at one time. At the time, I considered it to be a signature effect by Michael Giles, but I could be wrong.

I like this levitation for years from Markus Gabriel.

Its a lil confusing. I chanced upon Scott Penrose's page once before. But, I've seen about 3 performers perform this illusion on youtube. Which brings me to my question. If pointed in the right direction, I'd like to manufacture this with appropriate permission in a Super X version.

Contact Markus Gabriel, he is the creator of the version you are looking for.
His email: post@zauberei.ch

Hans klok did a fan levitation years ago...
in the History of Magic, a girl levitated when the ventilator was turned on.
then, Hans also levitated into the air...

The type of illusion Hans Klok did, is ways different from the ORIGINAL as created and performed by Markus Gabriel (see my link above).
Message: Posted by: David Nathan Magic (Aug 17, 2013 02:35PM)
But whats the name of Hans' version? And does anyone else do it?
