Something you have to realize is that it's not one continous shot. It's all of the video that was taken at the time, and then edited together. That's what they have to do to get all of it on tv. To show the whole entire stunt would simply take way too long, and there just isn't enough time to show the whole thing. It's common sense.

You seen Criss do it right? If it was all just a camera trick, prove it. I'm sick of people saying it's a camera trick and not being able to prove it. Just beacuse you can't figure it out, doesn't mean it can't be done. David Copperfield did the same thing, but on a larger scale. It can be done.

If David Copperfield used a camera trick, then I would say that Criss did to. But if that's true, then as far as I see it, camera tricks aren't that bad. They are just another tool.

I'm saying that if one of the greatest magicians of my time finds using camera effects to be alright, then I will accept them as another tool of the magician.

David Copperfield is one of the magicians that nearly everyone has heard of. He's been doing magic for a very long time, and has had some amazing effects. He's won countless awards, and is the magician who holds the most world records for magic. My opinion on camera tricks would change if it was found out that he uses them.

Fallingblood, I understand your passion on this topic, but if you gave up now the arguments would end. You are never going to win this argument, even if you showed actual proof. This forum would dissappear if there was no arguing, just to let you know.

You people need to learn the difference between "camera tricks" and creative editing. Chris' effects are not the product of camera tricks, but of careful camera setup and prepration and creative editing.

Why do you think he came off so bad on Letterman? ..because he didnt have control of the cameras.

You kids need to accept reality.

I kinda agree hellfish r whatever ur name is. I think he just used a similar method to copperfield's smaller levitations, like his stage ones, and used stooges who could see the u no what and if not oh well, but the camera couldn't see the u no what. So it looked good on tv but was absolutely impossible in reality, at least the way it was shown on tv, im not saying the effect is impossible.

And btw im fairly sure copperfield's levitation over the grand canyon was a totally different method and was not a camera trick.

I'm sorry but I find the whole CONCEPT of using camera tricks to do magic to the people at home to be wrong. I'm not changing my opinion just because a lengendary magician did it. What that automatically makes it better/right if someone like copperfield used them?

lol yeah maybe hellfish is too hard to comprehend 4me. I mean u have edited then fish so like the edited goes with satan and the fish goes with tartar sauce so i guess it messed with my head.

But about angels method i think it involved ----- i cant say it would b exposure but it really was him doing it but only as a camera trick.

Copperfield had ----- involved but his was a real trick but required a lot of distance so that u couldnt c him well and ----- either. I havent really seen copperfields too much so i could be way off on it. But from the little stuff ive seen of it thats what im thinkin about it.
