Derren Brown: Invisible Man Sketch


Derren Brown persuades a film student that he’s invisible.

Derren Brown is a talented artist and a great performer. He is a major force in the world of illusion - he can seemingly predict and control human behaviour. He doesn’t claim to be a mind-reader, instead he describes his craft as a mixture of magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship (and he admits to telling the truth about not telling the truth.)

Whatever you choose to call it, his unparalleled performances amaze and unsettle all those who watch him. This is a powerful and provocative form of entertainment, either live or on the screen.

I haven’t yet seen Derren Brown live - but will do in May in Sheffield (check out his website for dates for the current tour). I’ve watched most of what he’s produced on DVD and read one of his books (Tricks Of The Mind). Some of the things he does are pure trickery, some are misdirection, some are downright obvious, and some are just well.. amazing. This being one of them.

Edit: there’s a website mentioned before and after the video, which I don’t believe is connected or endorsed by Derren. Of course you can look at it if you want, but personally, I’d steer clear of it and look for more established and trusted sources.

So, watch as the performer ‘tricks’ the film student into thinking he’s invisible - can you guess how it’s done? If you enjoy this performance, I’d highly recommend checking out Derren’s DVDs.

Lucy Porter Explains And Builds A Time Machine


Mad scientist and secret physicist, Lucy Porter (also a comedienne), explains the theory of time travel, builds a time machine and experiences the intricacies of time paradoxes.

Lucy Porter On StageI have never seen her ‘live’, and I’ve been to quite a few comedy clubs, but based on her videos, she is an engaging and fun performer. (I was going to add petite, but wasn’t sure that’s quite politically correct nowerdays).

So watch the video, and let Dr. Porter show you her time travel exploits. Check out her official site for her tour dates.

Thanks to the National Carrot Association for this bit of information, and the BBC and That Mitchell And Webb for the images.

Dead End City: The Series: Pilot Episode

Gary Graham (Star Trek, Alien Nation) stars in the TV pilot Dead End City, TV’s homage to Sin City. His sexy co-stars include Dani Lennon, Misty Madden, and Mandy May - who is soon to be seen on Sci-Fi Channel’s Sanctuary.

You can get more at the Dead End City The Series official website, including behind the scenes video and photos, a trailer and images of the cast.

Looks like a hard-core, zombie-fest in the extreme. It actually looks like the major usage of green screen has paid off. It gives it an ‘unreal’ and almost comic book effect. Film noir?

There’s a sneak-peek of the pilot below:

Thanks to Jeff Varga (the director).
