We have now produced a Locking Control Reel. This is similar to the control reel but is fitted with a locking mechanism which allows you to stop it at any point with out having to hold on to it. The Control reel is ideal for slow motion animation effects. A classic example of this is the Serpentine Silk effect, where a knot is tied in a large handkerchief, and the knot visibly unties, making for one of the most effective pieces of visual magic ever conceived.
The Locking Control Reel is made of brass, painted flesh color, and comes to you with instructions for use, along with the presentation for the routine above.
