Confrontational as it might seem, I submit that the Metamorphosis presented by Kanoe and myself on the finale of the Master's of illusion season, is without peer. I filmed this at age 63 and trained the girl who presented it with me in the fine art of metamorphosis. Kanoe was trained in dance and movement, but beyond that she is a natural athlete, capable of difficult movement. So many looked for a gimmicked trunk and missed the obvious truth of training.

Wow--that was great!

What I personally liked in that clip was how JP didn't "waste" the bag in the trunk. He made it look difficult to even get in the bag, which I think increases the impossibility of the illusion. The actual change itself was instantaneous, and had an uncanny persistence of vision effect.

Loved it!

shame that a show with such talented magicians has such a bad editing team.

i can't stand to watch it. Nothing worse than seeing great magicians look less than amazing because someone doesn't know how to cut together a magic show.
