In the previous lesson, I showed you how to make the most out of Mini-Illusions incorporating live animals, and now... it's time to "go big,"...

as I share with you larger stage magic involving quick costume changes, a strange solo-appearance, spectral apparitions, and life-size dancing skeletons.

I begin by taking a clever idea and making it even better by adding humor, professional costumes and props, and a familiar story which motivates all the action.

The result is a highly-entertaining two-person transposition that fills the stage, yet packs easily into the trunk of your car.

Next, I deviate widely from the original and (to me) unsatisfying method, and instead share my own design for a versatile illusion base you can build...

which allows you to produce or vanish a person, or even yourself, as I demonstrate with my own twisted take on laundry day. A true, optical illusion.

And then, we're off to visit the spirit realm as I show you a few of my original ideas for a spookshow, or ghost show, including a quick and easy floating candle,

tiny animated dancing ghosts, a familar ghost-eating character, and my (pee-es)-de-resistance... life-size, articulated, three-dimensional, dancing skeletons...

each one operated by a single puppeteer. The elegant design is intuitive and interactive, allowing a wide range of motion, and easily applied to other characters.

As you can see, in this lesson I've given you finished pieces while highlighting the versatility of the core methods of these incredible illusions.

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.

Humourous Presentations! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 7th, 2016
Dan Harlan does a lovely job presenting and teaching Tarbell 45.

There are three acts in total. Dan Harlan has taken what used to be a gag, and made it into a strange and magical appearance.

Each act is thoroughly entertaining. You can tell careful thinking was put into the planning and making of each trick, taking extra precautions for someone who might be stuck inside.

The spook-show could have been really scary if it wasn't so dang funny!
