In the feature length documentary “A Magical Vision” Michael Caplan explores the career of scholar and magician Eugene Berger. I was hired by Michael to produce animation for the film. This included 2D and 3D manipulation of archival photographs as well as adding motion and depth to fine art pieces created by Michael Pajon. I also created original animation in the style of Terry Gilliam to tell the history of magic.
