On the TV they normally use a winch and camera tricks,

In real life they normally put their feet together and then stand on the ball of one foot, they stand in such a position the crowd can't see this.

Or, at least thats what they told me on one of the "magician's tricks revealed" TV programs

FYI... Wrong forum for this...

it's FM man.
my theory... he is so small (skinny) that by fluttering his hands like he does, he is able to acheive the lift needed...

actually, I would think that by hanging a bite grip from the ceiling, he should be able to hold himself off the ground for 2 seconds and make it look real...

my 2 cents

no look at his right foot it is being blocked from the left he is simply holding himself up with the tip of his foot on his right and using his hands as a distraction
