Topic: Cyril Spiderman Effect
Message: Posted by: brettsaunders (Oct 11, 2008 06:10AM)
Hi Everyone,

I did a search here on the forums but couldn't find any reference but to the Stealth retractor. I'd really like to use a similar effect as what Cyril Takayama did in http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=cz7pKc_W2l0 to point out a chosen card in such a dramatic way for a stage production.

Just wondering if there are any props purchaseable anyone might know of other than the Stealh Retractor which can reproduce such an effect?

Thanks for any pointers.

That was a long and boring clip. Basically, that guy was a stooge, I was expecting it to just float to him near the end and you could probably do something like that with an 'itr'... but the actual, visible spider web like in the clip would probably be an expensive item that Cyril had custom made for him.

Hi Graywolf,

Elsewhere on the Café, I got a referral to use a retractor, but I would imagine that would require 2 retractors - one for the stooge and one for the magician. Any other marketed setup ideas not using stooges or retractors would be great. Is there such a thing as a cord/line shooter & retractor?
