Watch Houdini come back to life

Restoration artist M.A. Ludwig (aka Mel) has created this time lapse of her work on one of Houdini's most famous publicity shots. Says Mel, "I opted for the time lapse photography to show this restoration simply for the fact that there was something about the photo that deserved nothing LESS. And I was right. The entire restoration took about 1 hour, 45 minutes."

  1. WOW! Very nicely done! I also liked that the artist used Star Trek music as part of the soundtrack. Trekkie FTW! :p
