Topic: Unrolling poster appearance ?
Message: Posted by: Yves Doumergue (May 19, 2021 12:27AM)
Hi there,
I’m desperately looking for the name and videos of this illusion:
A life size poster of the magician is unrolled on a wall.
But suddenly the magician in the poster moves and appears to be alive.
It then appears that it wasn’t a poster but the magician himself.
Hope this description was clear enough…

Take care and thanks for your help.!

I know this effect was used in the Omar Pascha Black Art Act.

I believe Lance Burton did something like this or maybe it was a frame that was put into a spinning frame on a raised platform. I think Bill Smith made.
And yes, Ray is correct, Omar Pasha dis something like this also.

What a great act this is! Always happy to see an Omar Pasha clip. Love the hoop vanish, I never get tired of seeing him do that.
