Too many edits, I'm afraid. :-(

Could you do it again without the edits, please. It would be received better, I think.

You didn't ask for any input, so I am sorry that this is unsolicited. but....

Would be a MUCH stronger effect if the magician is put into the box, and escapes.

The way it is currently shown,the magician is seen for one second as he puts on a mask, then the assistant is the one who magically escapes and transforms. This routine clearly makes the assistant the star of the show.


On a staging note, a few more swords may make it more dramatic, or have the swords enter and exit from the sides, may make it more visual.

Otherwise it seems pretty cool. I do like it! Smile

Thanks Sb it is just a demo I'm not willing to show the full illusion as the ideas that where created I would like to keep original this is just to give an understanding of what this illusion looks like to the employer

if you read the description below the video it gives a more in depth understanding of what this does


"A Darkly lit very obscure illusion that looks like something right out of your nightmares the masked illusionist takes his lovely assistant and puts her in a very small oddly looking cage securing her tightly.
Pulling swords from a lit up tank of water the illusionist thrust them into the cage appearing to pierce the assistant and covering the swords in dripping blood which then are returned to the tank of water, mean while the cage is hoisted in the air.
The illusionist walks over to a rope attached to the hanging steal cage, as the cage collapses no one appears to be in it!!! The illusionist pulls the mask off and in fact it is the lovely assisted then with a loud bang & flash of light the illusionist is behind the audience for the grand finish."

"This effect is an original performance to Nevar Illusions and can only be seen live"

Here's a link to the original by Justino Zoppe. For those who haven't seen him, Justino does fabulous work. His juggling lit fireworks is just superb to watch!

You could hide a baby elephant in that base area.

This video does not do the illusion justice..its actually built quite well and does not use a base method

Great title, this illusion is a nightmare - the steps are huge!!! (the box looks smaller than the steps, quess where she went?)
Not at all an improvement over the classic TABOURET illusion.

The video is reminiscent of Blair Witch. It made me so nervous that I didn't finish watching.
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

That video is still full of edits and the design is not deceptive.

Here's a video of a much better version as performed by Michael Grasso

Tristan' that was beautiful! The misdirection was perfect! The camera-person cooperated, and it was flawless! Thanks for that!

Thanks for the AGT clip. No question, a far more deceptive design.
