Yeah I saw that, thats how Chris Angel does it. But David Blaine isn't standing in front of anything, so what does he have to lift himself up?

According to this guy...



YOu never actually leave the ground, yet in some videos I see people's feet completely off the ground. In my opinion I think it's careful manipulation of a jump, if you could even call it a jump.

Basically what painfully obvious thing they have in common is that the audience is ALWAYS behind the guy. Either that or you have a distraction going on, for instance in the video I posted there is traffic, and in some others they creat a HUGE hype so peopel get distracted and don't notice the subtle things that make this trick obvious.

Anywho, I'm curious to know how to pull it off, because the video i posted doesn't make it very clear and it's a tad bit sketchy on how to do it.

Maybe you could PM me a simple guide on how to pull it off? I'm interested to knwo as I think this would give my Youth Group a church quite a thrill, maybe even pull off some cash or something.

Did you do it by standing up with your other foot and keeping your left one still?

Criss Angel is freaky man, he levatated from one building to another, and did it with a wide angle shot, so there's no way they could of hid a crane... explain that one.
