AIDEN SINCLAIR: ILLUSIONS OF THE PASSED
Aiden Sinclair is a paranormal illusionist who made a big television debut on America's Got Talent a few years ago, getting go-ahead votes from the judges and standing ovations from the audience. Now, he is the resident illusionist at the Stanley Hotel, where he performs his "Illusions of the Passed" Theatrical Seance every weekend.
His show walks the fine line between reality and magic as he explores ghosts, spiritualism, crime, and insanity in this intimate performance, sometimes incorporating elements from his Grifter work like card tricks, but more often opting on illusions that call upon spirits, that speak to old fraud seance mediums, and lost souls of the Titanic. Through all of our work together, Aiden and I have become good friends as this project grew over time, beginning first as part of a still-secret production that I can't talk about, and becoming an advertisement series for his theatrical seances at the Stanley Hotel, with the occasional weekend filming for entry pieces for various video productions on air. We filmed for the better part of the late summer and fall of 2016.
