I think people have said that in the street it isn't an issue but in a quiet room, AT FIRST, it does make a little noise. But after a few performances apparently you're fine and it remains silent.

I just grunt a little when I "fall" out of the air and that and my feet hitting the ground cover the little noise when in a quiet room. people are still freaking out from actually being able to see under your feet so they won't ever hear a thing anyways.

LOL, that was awesome. It was definitely my favorite video performance I've seen of The One so far. I'm confident that I understand how it works, but I haven't seen this lev happen slowly and controlled like that before (no offence to Peter and Piz) and I was getting a little concerned that maybe it would be too difficult to get the slow rising look I prefer. I am so totally SOLD!! This will be my next major magic purchase.

CasualSoul,
You may want to buy it directly from Peter's website since you are both in Canada. There were some boarder crossing stories earlier in this link that delayed the arrival of some ONE's that you could avoid easily.
Scott Emo, co-creator of Fenced In Illusion - There's nothing better than breaking free!

And creator of Sacred - The Child Conjuring Illusion - Because there is nothing more magical than the creation of a child.

I discussed this comment with Jon, and we both had a little chukkle! Smile

Funny thing is I actually go-up slower then Jon did (about 10sec slower), it's simply the angle it was shot at. Mine was shot with someone standing-up, when shooting his Vid it was recorded with the person sitting down on a couch about 3-4 feet lower to the ground then in my Vid.

His was shot strickly for presentation, as it was set to get totally under the feet, mine was shot from spectator view for reaction purposes. It's all in the presentation brother Smile


BTW, I'm happy you are getting this, ENJOY!! Smile

Those fighting words PIZ?.. do I smell a showoff?...lol.. just joking.

Piz and I had discissed doing a silly video, but still more for performance sake.. not that his performance wasn't good. I saw that lady he had hold up the camera at the place he shot the video and she is still freaked out.. then we showed her just the vid of me doing it on youtube... now she is equally freaked out by me.. she is kind of scared of us now but still wants us to perform at her party.. so all is good.

I think we may film a couple more this weekend just to be silly but who knows.. I'm going to see simon lovell's lecture at magic, inc. in chicago on saturday.. so hopefully we can perform and film on friday night.. to be continued.

anyways, to make a long post even longer, I will add that I'm happy that the videos helped to convince you to invest into the One Levi.

I just watched your video again and yeah, you're right. I think why I remembered it differently was because of the angle and the greater degree of shadow under your feet. You actually do rise slower lol. Memory and perception are funny things. When I do Balducci for people that don't know it they always tell people I rose a whole foot off the ground. hahahaha

I don't like the way the trick looked. That's just me though.
How many Magicians does it take to advertise a trick? Three.. One to steal the trick. One to steal HIS trick. And one to write a good review.

You don't seem to like a lot of things fooksau, do you? Smile I've already seen nearly the same comment coming from you on another thread (Will Tsai's colour change I think). People here do not really care if you like an effect or not, but what they would like to know is WHY you like it or not (especially if you don't like the effect).

Don't take it too personal, but dropping a line and just saying you don't like an effect doesn't really make sense to me and does not really make things evolve on a forum... but going further in your thoughts on why you do not like it would surely interest people.
