Illusion Projects has been asked how they get their prop saw blades to look so good. They make a lot of blades and Tim had a certain vision for the way they should look so it reads to the audience as a circular saw blade.
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.
