Well if not control shadows that another force is controlling them. That's powerful, Disney level enchantment.

Ok, seemed interesting, but all my fears were justified.
First of all - of course it is exactly the same as Mayne's Ghost Vision. Titanas just lying to say "method far from his". Just metal instead of clear plastic and some ideas.
By the way - Ghost Vision is much better in angles, so here goes
the second - angles are really bad. 1 on 1 only, or just keep away everybody like in TV specials.
Even in the tutorial he flashes the gimmick all the time. And you better have really big phone, not iPhone SE, for example. iPad would be ideal.
Or you must have the case. In fact you can't do any animation without the case (so they say in tutorial). So buy it. Of course no animation with borrowed phones.
But the the case it just looks like mini projector.
I personally think the price is ok for what you get which is rare in magic nowadays.

I would also keen to know the durability of Silhouette


Been playing with this all day now. I love it. The supplied parts are very well made and durable. You can also easily make your own shadows

I'm planning to make a hand in a 'pinching' shape.. So I can have a thought 'plucked' from a spectators head Smile

Hope this helps

It’s hard to believe you have seen the instructions and still think it’s the same as Ghost Vision, not to mention that the instructional video is not out yet.
I have ghost vision and it’s a great trick but totally different to silhouette not just because of different materials but mainly because silhouette can do animations.

It's a similar concept to Ghost Vision because in that (excellent) effect a 'shadow' is created. However, that's only inside a photo or video...

Ghost Vision would twin with it nicely. This happens to something real. a shadow.. not a photo. A shadow on a wall that actually INTERACTS with you or your spectator.

MoM have it on the site now shipping from the UK here : https://www.magicshop-deals.com/products/silhouette

Release day is the 17th June

Hope this helps

Titanas, I won't go deeper, but sure "kinda ring on the thumb" will tell you everything)
Also want to mention that in Ghost Vision you can do animations. And without a case as in silhouette. And even with a borrowed phone))
"Totally different" is like magnеt and thread, "different" is like thread and loops.
Maybe you mean using phone light instead of phone camera, but it has nothing to do with the gimmick for sale. Gimmick is the same "kinda ring on the thumb".
Improved of course, since it's a new product)

he's only saying that he thinks the majority of his client base won't dedicate the time and energy into being able to perform this properly - that's fair enough...I reckon he's right... but he's also saying what a great effect it is too...

I can understand taking that position on stocking some blatantly trash item by some no name company, etc....but regardless of whether you like Silhouette or not, I think it can be generally agreed it's a very well thought out and creative effect. I've seen the pics and while the gimmicks may not be for me, they appear to be very well made and clever.

Tobias is a respected creator. He's not some no-name putting out a piece of junk. He has a good track record. So it seems a bit harsh to not stock it.

To each's own, though so in that sense, I respect Mark's position.

Wow, went into pretty painful detail as to what it is for starting out by saying he wasn't going to show / expose it...

Looks like my prediction was correct (again) and I’ll be grabbing a bargain on the second hand market. Smile
