Could not find the link like i wanted to but im sure you will all know what i am talking about. I just saw a Banachek show recently, and our local ring went as a group afterwards. There is an effect where he levitates a frisbee and then he throws it. As you might have noticed, there is a guy on the (viewers right) part of the screen when he was levitating the frisbee, when he throws it, the same guy catches it. Now, i called Banachek on it in a friendly way and he said it was "bad editing" and he also said it was filmed twice. Thats all i have to say. I will not post my thoughts on what he said. By the way, Banachek is the one who basicly runs the show over there. (At least now he does).

i noticed that, i think everybody has, its not a big deal, he does levitate the frisbee and make it go forward and some1 does catch it, it doesnt matter if its the same guy as who's behind him or if its the HULK, the effect is the same and the edit has nothing to do with how it works

It doesn't show anything as the crowd that was there was his staff, who see every trick he does way more than once. Doesn't prove anything, except that t.v is hard to do magic for.

he never claimed it was random people, he acually said that they were people behind the makings of the show just relaxing at the park, and he decided to do something, he just did it 2 times and they edited it wrong, BIG DEAL, because youve never screwed up anything ever rite?

Banachek told me face to face that criss has to often repeat effects to the same audiences and that they use the reaction to one and the effect for the other. He does not even practice. What he said was that he just tells criss where to stand and what to do and he does it, he also says that criss can be a little full of himself hence why people have had bad encounters.

Good example of a stooge...

For those of you who know how the bottle through table effect is done...do you REALLY think that the girl felt the bottle? Just a thought...
