When John was looking for a new builders for Suspended Animation the choice was simple William Kennedy and Tim Clothier.
John wanted builders that would build the prop exactly to the letter and not cut corners on quality. We have received great feedback complimenting us on the workmanship of the illusion and the audience reaction they’ve received.


We have a methodical and detailed “paper trail” on every SA on the market today so that we can keep track of all the illusions and their owners to maintain the quality and integrity of the illusion- this is important for the legal owners that have paid for the illusion and rights to perform it.
Having Tim Clothier and Willie Kennedy on the SA team only strengthens the illusion as Tim and Willie are world-renowned for their attention to detail, craftsmanship, strong ethical values and for being great at meeting deadlines.

Suspended Animation to be built to the highest quality and 5-star standard,
we know the history of EVERY SINGLE AUTHENTIC Suspended Animation ever built, even the 2nd hand units.


Illusion piracy is a problem within the magic industry. Please make sure you do your homework when buying illusions new or 2nd hand. Make sure to ask about the history of the prop and make sure the seller has the right to BUILD or SELL the illusion. This is vital as you don’t want to damage your reputation.
If you would like to know if a is buying a 2nd hand Suspended Animation and you want to know if it's authentic or not contact John Taylor.

If any Illusionists are interested in receiving a list of names of reputable, honest and ethical builders you can trust, please email John Taylor and he will not hesitate in providing you with a list of trustworthy builders.

We can not stress this point enough - The only authorized builders of the SUSPENDED ANIMATION Illusion in the world at the moment is Willie Kennedy WK Magic and Tim Clothier - Illusion Projects
