    The act of levitating any live creature on stage is LIFE-THREATENING. DO NOT DO IT, unless under the supervision of Flying by Foy, ZFX, Hall Associates, Branam Rigging, D2 Flying Effects, or another reputable rigging company specializing in theatrical flight effects.

    Save a Life. Hire a Professional Qualified Rigger, each and every time.
