Can anyone help me with some good ideas for an effect in our production of the Wizard of Oz? First of all, we are not flying any actors in this production... at all. But... The director would really love some kind of effect to look like the balloon with the wizard in the end is actually flying away (you know, like in the movie, when he leaves without Dorothy). Anyway, projection is not possible. Any ideas for any kind of scenic effect that would make it look like he's beginning to fly away without actually lifting the actor? So far, the design of the balloon is simply a basket with three ropes attached to a lineset out of sightlines. Thanks in advance!
