ok thats exposure and your way wrong, he pulls the picture down afterward and there are no holes in the wall or any signs of holes. ive seen this done before by the pendragons, only slightly different, they did it against a canvas and there was noone behind the canvas
How can it be exposure AND "way wrong"?
I'm not saying that my explaination is the way Criss Angel did it on Mindfreak, I'm saying that this is how I would do it. Just trying to think creatively.
In my version, I would be sure that the wall and door behind the painting was made of a dark material with a precision fit that the television camera could not detect. I've been involved in television production long enough to know that the camera can be easily fooled by using the right materials, lighting and distance. In fact, you'd be surprised at how little the camera DOES see.
Look, either the objects have to come from the performer's hands and/or clothes or they have to come from behind the painting. This isn't exposure, it's just common sense. I've just come up with a way that I would perform it and don't mind sharing it. Maybe someone will see this and run with it. More power to you!
