Illusion Projects has worked with creative director and magic designer Douglas Leferovich on many varied projects over the past few years. And when Strip magazine decided to run an article on Doug, he called to see if they could shoot at the shop.
In the summer of 2015 The Illusionists filmed their NBC TV special at the beautiful Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles. Tim got a call from Simon Painter, producer of The Illusionists, a couple of weeks prior to filming.
It’s not every day that Illusion Projects is asked to build a 10′ diameter flying saucer. So when George Harris, CEO of Alien Tequila, asked them just that – they had to say yes.
Some guys get excited about buying a new car. Not the guys at Illusion Projects. They get excited about forklifts- they probably need to get out more!
The new shop has 12,000 sq. ft. of workspace with areas for prop display, assembly and a fantastic mezzanine floor for parts storage. It allows Illusion Projects to handle larger projects and more projects at the same time. Now everyone has to walk much further to get anything!
