The Everyday Illusion Spellbook

“The Everyday Illusion” was a music video that I directed for producer L’Orange.
All animation effects were created in-camera using the phenakistoscope technique.

Want to recreate the magic at home? Download a PDF of the phenakistoscopes here.
Print them out and watch them on your turntable under a bright light through your camera to witness the animated illusion. (You can also use a strobe light or strobe app flashing at 30Hz.)

The label stickers on the vinyl release of the album are also phenakistoscopes. You can see video of the LP in motion here. The LP is sold out through Mello Music Group, but you might still be able to find a copy at your local independent record store. You can listen to the album & buy a digital copy on Bandcamp here.
