I saw lance Burton performed this trick in the world greatest magic. He took a can of soda, and crushed it into little pieces. There were so small like it was dust. Where can I learn this from?

Um, I saw that, and I have this awful feeling that it's a TV effect sorry. If you want you can come up with your own. (Once you get 50 posts you can join the secret sessions and discuss methods for this trick)

It was not an electronic effect but as a television effect it does rely on the audience point of view. It is nothing other than a simple set of two commonly known ideas put together into one effect.

Probably impractical for everyday use, but looked good for a lead in to the car crush illusion.

PM me if you need to know. Prepare to be disappointed. Also take Jordini's advice. Get 50 posts that actually contribute, not just "how is this done" type posts and another world may open up.

If you want to do an amazing bit of magic with a crushed soda can get "Healed and Sealed" by Anders Moden.

I work as a director and use a lot of special effects. Is there something on-line where you can see him perform this?
I think I can tell right away if it is a real trick or a real camera trick

It is definetly not a camera trick. Like what Frank says, it uses a very common method. Looks cool on TV though.

Well, when I saw it, I didn't think that it was a television effect where they stopped the camera or anything, but it definately would be very impractical to perform live. However, it did look cool.

This is interesting, I just took a step back and thought about all of the discution over wether something is a tv trick or not and it is kinda sad becuase these days we cant tell the differance Smile
