Hi,
There was a scene in the film "The Illusionist" where Eisenheim tosses an orange back and forth between his hands and at one point causes the orange to time-lag or slow down in mid toss. I actually don't know if this is more juggling or magic, or if it just a result of special effects CGI.
Any thoughts?

The item is discussed in the October issue of Genii.

Hi Jonathan,
Fantastic!
I haven't received my issue yet, I am looking forward to it even more now.
BTW: Your feature in Genii was outstanding! Kudos.
Thanks.
All the best,
J.

Hi all,

sorry for shuffling this thread to the top after such a long time. I stumbled over this only recently, while googling for that exact effect.

Unfortunately I have no access to the Genii magazine. I would be willing order a back issue, though, provided it contains the information I am hoping for.
So, it would be helpful for me to know, what exactly is "discussed" in that issue. Is the bottom line basically that it's CGI and was never and cannot be done live? Or does the discussion also contain some ideas and techniques for live performances?

Any help would be much appreciated,
thanks in advance,
Marc

You may be able to access Genii by checking with Magic Christian or by going to the Genii forum. All the back issues are on line.

I used to do the exact same thing in my classic billiard manipulation act, and my method was only sleightly different from the one in Genii. I think it will be exactly what you are looking for.
