Recorded at De Balie in Amsterdam on October 25th, 2018. In this format-bending presentation, intergalactic VFX explainer Captain Disillusion recounts his journey from humble amateur superhero to best Blender artist of all time*.

Your vigilance caused me to dig deeper and figure out this more solid explanation. I want to make sure that everyone understands: the original episode's explanation is not "by" James Randi. It's only a movie. Mr. Randi and the rest of the staff at JREF very generously participated and performed to a script I had written. So the responsibility for the original "inaccuracies" rests with me. Enjoy!
