Shattered Reality by Lance Richardson
Item Number: BA5851
Shattered Reality illustrates the psychology of magic where the magician uses sight, sound and even touch to create the illusion of a solid mirror being smashed to pieces, then restored. In this unique effect, a framed mirror is inspected and touched by an audience member moments before the magician inflicts a damaging blow, making the mirror shards spill onto the floor. When the damage is done, the magician pulls back the protective cover revealing that all but one of the mirror pieces have been smashed out. A quick shake of the frame makes the last piece fall to the floor with that all-too-familiar sound of broken glass echoing through the theater. After the magician picks up the broken pieces in a bag, he flips it open then reveals the fully restored mirror, showing that the pieces have disappeared, only to have returned to the once empty frame.
The focus of this MOCKUP series is to present new magical effects in full detail. A working mockup/prototype is built and photographed from every angle, providing a clear look at the featured effect. Along with over a dozen pictures, there is a complete set of workshop plans with ALL the measurements required and written details on performance, routine and building. I am sure you will find this the most comprehensive set of workshop plans out there.
