An amazing effect, not only visually, but also aurally. The combination of both really sells the illusion. I really enjoyed Mr Mengel's sincerity and attention to detail in his instruction. I also found the section on how the effect evolved from inception to final product most interesting, and really appreciate that being included. Nicely done!
This effect is very well taught. So much detail has gone into making sure that you're left with everything you need to know, and nothing is left to chance.
The effect itself is smart, simple but very powerful. Even when watching the teaching segments you can still find yourself being fooled even though you KNOW what's going on.
At first you'll think to yourself that this is impractical, but trust the teaching, you will be amazed at how well this really does work.
There are other effects out there that are similar to this, but I truly believe that for the genre of this style effect it couldn't be any simpler or more effective to perform.
