A trailer, as requested by Telefilm Canada, to promote my film Pepper's Ghost (2013) at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. This trailer was streamed at a kiosk in the lobby of the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Featuring Stephen Broomer, Eva Kolcze, Cameron Moneo, Laura Berger, and Katie Russell.
Pepper’s Ghost occurs in two rooms. These rooms were formerly used for psychological observation studies. There’s a two-way mirror between them. I realized that I could create simple optical illusions in this mirror by playing with ceiling lights, gel filters, curtains. The mirror is thus transformed into a mysterious tunnel. My collaborators and I assist the camera in achieving this illusion by performing around it.
