Although every effect we perform should create the illusion of magic, in our business, we reserve the term "Illusion" for a specific type of trick, typically, any large, stage effect where a person, large animal, or any really big object, is produced, vanished, transformed, and so on.

"When I was first learning magic, I was fascinated by the illusions I saw performed on TV and built many large props out of cardboard, just to try them out. And those early days taught me many lessons about design and construction which helped immensely when I graduated to building with more durable materials." - Dan Harlan

The illusions featured in this lesson are technically simple, although Dan has taken the opportunity to push them way beyond the printed page.

The first one, in fact, doesn't require any carpentry skill whatsoever just proper staging and coordinated movements acquired through careful rehearsal. With this knowledge, you can cleverly cause someone to travel to an impossible location and be replaced by an entirely different person.

Then, Dan goes really big and redesigns an angle-sensitive idea, giving it a practical, portable, piece-by-piece construction, a complete make-over, and a brand-new presentation that not only excites the audience's interest, but also justifies (and obscures) the necessary choreography to pull it off.

Then, Dan takes on two illusions in one with a deceptively simple build that can be used for a direct production, or if you prefer, a surprising switch. And once again, Dan designed it to break-down into pieces small enough to be transported in the back seat of a car. And set-up requires no tools.

In addition to the secret methods employed for these illusions, you'll also learn a bit about how to properly stage them, and, of course, Dan walks you step-by-step through every detail of their construction. So, when you're ready to build, my guidance will save you a lot of valuable time.

Every audience loves a big illusion done well, and this lesson will give you a strong foundation for understanding what it takes to do it right.

Tarbell 33 was GREAT!!! I’ve been thinking about doing some illusion effects and had even thought about making my own sub trunk, but these illusions are an even better idea! Dan is an awesome teacher, and I'm going to have to make the trip to Columbus to be in the audience one day!

Oh… and Trulie Scrumptious is awesome!
More Trulie, please!!!

Incredible Value and Detail Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 20th, 2018
It's hard to choose what's best about this video. Is it Dan's modernization of classics? His tips for how to use cheap, everyday items to look like expensive stage props? His detailed planning of how everything fits together, both in terms of routines and physical construction? His complete performances, followed by complete explanations?

There are so many great videos in this series, but the ones with stage illusions are particularly great values. Spend a few hundred dollars at a local strip mall and you'll earn it back with the first gig you book. Heck, at these prices you can afford to build a first-class stage illusion just to entertain yourself.

Dan Harlan is an excellent teacher and this is just an example of his work and exceptional skill in all area of magic. The illusion that he created from Tarbell's original offering is not only great in and of itself, but altered skillfully to add in the presentation for todays audience. Every aspect is covered from numerous performance views to construction of the physical apparatus.Every detail is explained and demonstrated with clear and explicit instructions. I cannot say enough about this and all of the illusions in this series. If you want to make an inexpensive illusion that can bring you higher performance fees, you should spend the money on this series. It is well worth every penny.

Harlan is as awesome as always Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 9th, 2015
I bought this because I have Always loved stage illusions. The last couple of years I have built a few. I happened upon this on the internet when searchin for new material to learn. I have a couple of Dan Harlans videos Before and I have learned a lot from them. When I saw that he had made this one about Illusions I just HAD to buy it.

As I watched it I got more and more interested. Dan Harlan is an AWESOME magic teacher. He explains everything in an easy to understand way and he is also very humorous. I don't regret buyig this video, I know that I will build the illusions as soon as possible because they are that good.

To sum it up I can only say this: If you want to start out with illusions this is the video for you. I'm gonna build these illusions and have a blast performing them.

This goes to Dan Harlan: THANK YOU for sharing your magic and knowledge. Awesome as Always.

not a fan of illusions but loved this Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 8th, 2016
In general I am not a fan of illusions - everyone knows what's coming. These however were cleverly scripted with lots of attention to detail, caught me by surprise on one occasion and appreciate the plans.

Almost makes me want to do an illusion if I didn't have to split the fee.

Great work

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 30th, 2015
This download was not only informative, but also incredibly entertainaing watching Dan's modern approach to these classics of Magic! I'm in the process of downloading the entire Tarbell video library and never considered building a NEW illusion until I saw THIS! I had some questions regarding the construction of "Who and Which" and after emailing my problem even got an email back from Dan Harlan himself! We begin construction next week!BRAVO Penguin!

Good insight as to what is an illusion Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2015
Mr. Harlan did an outstanding presentation of the illusions, going into all of the nuances. I only gave it a four star as I would never use them. I am a busker, restaurant and sometimes small platform performer so I would not have the space, but if you do stage then here are two fun gems.
