Innovative Illusions with Vehicles, Steel Plates & Boxes
Are you looking for modern & practical illusions that play big and will impress in today’s entertainment-saturated and competitive market?
This new book features cutting edge illusions with vehicles, steel plates & boxes! The illusions detailed in this book include innovative solutions for making cars appear, producing a motorcycle, making a cast of dancers appear instantly on stage as well as a variety of modern stage illusions.
All the illusions are contemporary in design & method and are designed for illusionists performing for cruise ships, corporate events, theatre shows, theme parks, showrooms and television.
This 3rd edition of “Equilateral” completes the trilogy of books that J C first penned over a 5-year period from 2004 – 2009. This latest version of “Equilateral”, includes brand new illusion designs not included in previous editions.
There are 12 illusions detailed in this book including “Ultimate Full Throttle”, J C’s final improved design for the surrounded motorcycle production as well as three car appearances in the form of “The Phantom Car Appearance”, “Bluff Appearance” and “Light Pillars”. The new “Light Pillars” production system is a stunning production that requires a proper stage with lighting. But, if you work on a theatre, showroom or cruise stage, this is great way to instantly produce a large object like a car, motorcycle or a cast of dancers.
“Crystal Metamorphosis”, from J C’s “Urban Illusions” book is the most popular illusion being built and performed by magicians all over the world. However, there have been requests for a design for a traditional Substitution Trunk. So, for the sake of completeness, J C’s modern design for a “classic” Sub Trunk is included in this book.
