What's with all the CA hating? So the guy is successful. He is surrounded by the best magicians in the game. Lance Burton, P&T, McBride, Banacheck.
As for the thing about 'out of control' and 'falling down' it is my understanding that you can not force someone to do something under hypnosis. That they will still not endanger themselves.
i.e. If you told someone to shoot themselves under hypnosis, they would not do it.
Self-preservation would overpower the hypnotic state. At least, that is my understanding, based on some tapes I saw of a hypnotherapy seminar.

Haven't seen the show. But could it be possible that he did the induction, ran through some pre-tests, and then given them suggestions as to what they might do after reading the paper or perhaps certain keywords? After the suggestion he roles the cameras and then shoots the scene. Not really a new technique but creative editing?
