Fair enough - No proof will be provided.

I would love to have a chat with you Bob regarding our methods.

Kind regards

I have come to the conclusion that critical thinking should be a required course in all schools. (In case this lacks clarity, I'm referring to those criticizing Art. "The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.")

It is also my belief that fathers should teach their sons how to behave as gentlemen and adults.

Posts here and elsewhere reveal that only a handful behave and act as mature adults. Everyone else seems to have stunted their emotional and mental growth somewhere in high school.

Best wishes to all,


Scott
p.s. Rereading my post makes me think it too harsh and judgmental. Apologies in advance... Simply couldn't resist!
p.p.s. This has been edited several times. Can't bring myself to water it down any more than this.

Just had a brief conversation with Art. Our methods are quite different, but, for what it's worth, neither involve stooges. (Not that I expect the doubters to believe me.)

But I did test the method I alluded to earlier and can say that it does work. How deceptive it would be on a long term basis- given a participant's ability to reflect back on what happened- I can't say.


I tested my method earlier, but it's not going well. The cotton wool balls keep falling off the window.

Will you PM me too, Art?

Art's clip notwithstanding, this effect is nowhere near impossible to re-create; it can be done quite easily and effectively in person without stooges, PS or DR. I do things exactly like this on a regular basis, NOT over Skype, but live and in-person. I don't think Art is yanking your chains when he speaks to this effects' realness and practicality in his own work.

JF.

P.S. It's really good to see you again, Davit! Smile

Screw the method... I'm just pleased to see a new effect.

I'm also thrilled to see Davit back.

After reading today's posts and reflecting on them, in particular Bob Cassidy's, I apologize to Art Vanderlay for jumping to conclusions and making the apparent erroneous assumption that a stooge was used.

I was wrong, and admit it.

I do believe you. Thank you for validating no stooges were used. Obviously you did not have to, and I'm quite sure others will say you should not have. But you do have massive credibility and I appreciate the fact that you did.

Sincerely sorry for jumping to the wrong conclusion.

No problem Enotskalb. I was a bit skeptical when I first heard the effect. But after thinking about it for a while, it dawned on me that there were a least a couple of ways the effect could be accomplished without a stooge. And sometimes that's the best way to come up with new ideas. Decide on something that, on its face, seems completely impossible from both a technical and audience point of view- and then figure out how to do it (or appear to do it) anyway.

The solutions might not always be practical or cost effective, but there usually will be solutions. And every once in a while you'll find one that's practical.(Just as you'll find many more that are not.)


Good thoughts,

Bob

No apologies needed.

My line of thinking is that nothing is impossible, there is always a way to achieve something no matter how insane it seems.

I also go to ridiculous lengths to make certain effects work, in my opinion the method is not important, it's the experience given to the spectators that is important.

Kind regards
