Not sure if this is the right place for this

Vanishing a Statue for T.V

I am trying to find out a method to vanish a statue.

The illusion is for T.V and can have the audience set up. We have controlled lighting and all that stuff.

To see picks of the statue please visit:

Any help will be much appreciated.

Cost: +- $2000.00


If you can't laugh at yourself, you are obviously not getting the joke

If the show is not live, the best way is to have the video edited. Look for a professional video/film editing shop in your area.

You can't use the Copperfield method!
And camera moving too!

So like Dynamike suggests make a video edit!

Andre Kole once performed this effect on tv during one of his specials.

Salamangka in Filipino means "Magic"

Seems cool
No one said it would be easy, or did they?

Check out my all new book "Chicken Scratches" visit my lulu store for more information.

I love magic and even enjoy TV magic. To me it doesn't matter. However, let me throw out a question and see what you guys (and gals) think. Do you think that the laymen audience is impressed with a statue vanish? I mean, they already question Blaine and Angel on things that just aren't physically possible (ex. walking on water, walking up the side of a building, etc.). In this day and age, does it impress them to see someone vanish a statue or do you think they immediately say "camera trick" and change the channel? Personally, I like it due to the fact that I am an illusionist and am entertained by seeing others perform. What do you think?

If you contact Goshman, maybe he can make a sponge statue look-a-like.....

OKay, bad joke.....

I agree, video-editing is the way.
