Producing Balance - Documentary
Balance was the most ambitious project we had ever embarked upon. It began in 2014 and took almost five years for us to bring it to market.
We filmed the entire process, from start to finish, and produced this mini documentary which you can download absolutely free.

- 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: This is not designed to be performed with the spectator next to you . It is designed for them to be a few feet away.
Customer reviews for Producing Balance - Documentary
Great documentary. While everyone always wants to know the secret, often time there is little recognition and appreciation of the vision, mechanics and hard work and dedication that goes into producing such a complex piece of magic that can also double as a fascinating work of art! Well done and thanks for the passion.
Great documentary I gives you a really good behind the scenes look of balance by Joshua Jay. It is to one hundred Prozent the best trick of the entire year. It is a bit expensive. But still I love the documentary I even tried to build it myself.
Balance seems to be a great trick to perform. And it looks like a lot of time and precision was put into the details of production. I liked the video but feel that it should have included the actual performance of balance. I will be considering purchasing balance in the future. I can't wait to find the performance video somewhere so that I can see if it is suitable to be performed in a small stage situation and. hopefully it is angle proof. Thanks to Josh for creating this.
Wow, thanks for letting me see your process, impressed? Yes
wow, what a juicy documentary ! so much crazy work, time and effort ! and finally It pays-off ! Contracts on juicy job well done !
Looks greath, congratulations Josh, a real chalenge, to wach for the spectators.
Very interesting considering the amount of time, people and determination needed to complete a dream. Detailed and straight forward explanation. Seems that nothing is impossible if you find the right idea and the right connections and have people who see your vision and trust your keen ability to create. Now I can see why it is the price it is. Nothing worth while comes cheaply in money or manpower. Thank you for what you have shared with all of us magicians.
Interesting to see behind the scenes. Would have liked to have seen more about how the relationship was initiated and forged between Josh and the Chinese fabrication company.
Made me want to purchase this trick, Thanks!!
Amazing back story to an absolutely amazing product!
I had no idea so much went into the making of gimmicks! I've actually toyed around with a few ideas for creating my own kind of 'out of sorts/impossible balance', but as of this moment, they're all still in the drawing/diagram phase.
This made me want to check out the product, but I guess all 40,000 units sold out! Still, I'd like to know what the gimmick consisted of; that might give me a tiny bit of insight into the 'how'.
Excellent mini documentary!
This one sound's too good to be true.
This mini-documentary is a really fascinating insight into the creative process behind Balance. A fun and informative watch for anyone interested in creating magic, or learning more about this product.
Full recommend a watch!
It is obvious from viewing this documentary on the creation of "Balance" that the team at Vanishing, Inc. has left no stone unturned in the quest for perfection. In terms of concept, build, fit, finish, and even packaging, the highest standards were employed. It looks like an absolute winner!
Great fun watching the documentary. What amazing and passionate dedication! Truly a glowing example of seeing within a challenge both a gift and an opportunity.
Awesome documentary to see how Joshua Jay's incredible Balance trick was produced. Watching this will make you appreciate Joshua Jay's creativity so much more. It was super entertaining.
This was a really cool documentary that makes me want balance
With the quality of the Balance documentary such that it is, I'm convince the product is even better quality. Well, done one and all. Now I must plan on purchasing Balance. Thank you, one and all.
I really enjoyed watching this. It's always very fascinating to me when I can kind of pick the brain if someone that I respect and look up to. It's so interesting to see the way these types of things are developed and come to life. Balance is a very unique and brilliant concept that amazes people when they see it. It see the process of the concept and development is truly a fascinating thing to be a part of...
Great inspiration to create effects!!!
I love watching how hard the vanishing Inc team works and the attention to detail they have. It was so interesting watching how this unique trick was created and i feel inspired by the team’s determination.
This is a amazing download. I don't have balance, but this tells you about how hard the vanishing inc. team worked on the trick. I would get this and watch this. It shows you how long it took and tells you how good the trick is. This is an amazing download and you won't regret downloading it!!
Sat down and watched this. Interesting and made me want to get the trick but I don't do stage so I can't. Nice work Joshua jay, this keep me quiet for a while. Thanks again VI for making this free. Highly recommended
This documentary was amazing! Josh if you see this I just want to thank you and your team for the attention to detail in this trick! I wasn’t so sure wether or not I wanted to buy the trick after watching this video, I’m ordering one by the end of the night!!
A brief, interesting peek behind the curtain.
How about a more extensive documentary on how the team turn ideas into routines?
Amazing documentary! I am now thinking about purchasing balance because of seeing how much time and effort was put into the product!
