      +CaptainDisillusion Captain, congratulations for the video, but I just think you're wrong about one thing:
      In 3:02 you say that changing the lens' field of view could ruin the trick. That's wrong.
      Changing the focal length WILL NOT change the perspective of a scene (a.k.a. point of view, a.k.a. the sizes and positions of objects relative to one another). Moving the camera's position is the only way to change the perspective. The lens' zoom itself only works as an ordinary crop*.

      Of course, each camera position "asks" for a proper focal length (and vice-versa) in order to properly frame your subject. That's why this is a very common misconception.
      Dolly zoom movie scenes are excelent demonstrations of what changes of perspective look like.

      Best wishes!

      * Yes, there's also possible barrel and pincushion distortion in every lens. But this has nothing to do with perspective, therefore it's irrelevant to the argument.

        What backwards retarded fuckstick would think that dancer is going anything but left to right in a counterclockwise direction?

          This is not about visual effects but can you explain the brainstorm Vs green needle illusion.

                      The Korg MS2000 is not capable of reproducing the sampled piano at 0:35.(unless used as a midi master keyboard) Nice try though.

I see clockwise, and when projected onto the imaging plane, the foot seems to be moving in a clockwise oval, so it doesn't seem like it's possible for it to appear to be going the opposite way?
