Hello,

I have recently seen a brilliant levitation performed (And I guess created) by Jason Latimer...

The illusion starts at minutes 5:00

http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=KAcjiZksqz4

Have you seen that before?

Best regards!

I recently came across this too. It is astonishing and fooled me badly. Great work Jason!

JL is one of those guys who you just don't hear enough about. By far one of the most original guys I have seen in a long time. Honestly, if I had to pick someone who was capable of being the next DC, it might very well be him - perhaps not in the sense of the mega illusions DC does, but in terms of the originality....maybe Im wrong, but I don't see too many guys like him.... He's just one of those guys who seems to 'get it'.

Nice Demo but it is reduced through the big laser probs with Theo Dari ( http://www.theodari.com ). When I did understand it correct he had the idea for the routine and didn´t give his allowance to JL.

I like him better than DC, but that's just me.

Holy crap.

I'd say more.. but it's hard to talk when my jaw has dropped to the floor.

He's talented.. handsome.. personable.. all he needs is better PR.. he could be HUGE

Sadly, he's completely stolen my friend's illusion and is happily flaunting it in this video.
To be more precise, I'm referring to the illusion called "2-D" by Franz Harary which begins at the 1:45 mark.
It's all in the reflexes.

Actually, I'm pretty sure its Franz's prop. He borrowed it from Franz for a show a couple years back.

Does he have his own now? How does Franz feel about it being in his video?

That I don't know.

I do believe this was the prettiest thing Jason has ever designed. I've worked around the prop several times and it is very clever but also HUGE! It's one of those illusions that's not practical for some venues but great for the larger stages. He actualy engineered it himself and it's very well thought out.

Why are people here so quick to claim Jason has stolen stuff?

I've seen the website for the other laser guy.. and his stuff is very little like Jason's act. Any similarity seems to be coincidental. If he complained.. I'm surprised that there was any real comparison! other than working with lasers.. the act seems entirely different.

Jason has worked in an FX shop for a long time.. and has access to cool stuff that many magicians would be afraid to try. (David Copperfield is nearly a technophobe.. he tries to NEVER rely on remote control or electronic anything.. much preferring mechaincal control or cable control on his props.. which can be both a hinderance and an advantage)

Be nice to eachother.. and once in a while.. don't !@#$% before you have the proper information.
