SEAN DANIELS: The Set Trick in “Tinker to Evers to Chance”

Here’s a question we get asked a lot – how do we do the wall tricks in Tinker To Evers To Chance?

The walls are actually a thin fabric treated so that light from the front makes it looks solid, BUT lights from behind reveals it to be translucent.

The fabric is stretched tight, to appear as a wall, but the reality is you could push thru it.

Pretty cool, huh?
