'Magic tree door' illusion baffles the Internet
May 27, 2017 | 9 comments
Stop-motion animator Kevin Parry has created a short video clip that seems to defy the laws of physics.
Entitled 'Walk in the Woods', the clip begins with Parry circling a tall mirror that has been placed up against a tree in the middle of a forest. As he walks forward however he appears to step directly through the mirror and out the other side in to another area of woodland.
The bizarre feat is then repeated, returning him to the starting point before the clip loops around.
"The video is comprised of a single take, duplicated, and I had to make sure my start and end points were fairly lined up when shooting," said Parry.
"There is a bit of digital trickery in that I had to warp the ends of the clips to match, but there's a hard cut in there (with only a few frames of dissolve). But I didn't green screen or mask anything."
"I've been wanting to make this illusion for some time, but waited until I could film it in a more exciting location than my house."
"I made an early morning trip at 5:30am out into the Oregon woods with the mirror and filmed before anyone was on the trail."
