Franz Harary, an accomplished illusionist and illusion designer has been one of Michael Jackson's secrets of success. At a very young age, Franz Harary sent a tape of his illusions created for football stadiums, to Michael Jackson. Days after he heads to Los Angeles to meet Michael Jackson and kicks starts his illusion consultant role with the Victory Tour.

Since then he has worked with Pop superstars like Justin Bieber, Usher, Missy Elliot, Madonna, *NSYNC, etc... in building concert illusions. He is considered not only an Illusion consultant but also a mega Illusionist himself, performing in large stadiums for over 15,000 audiences per show.

His greatest Illusions are disappearing a NASA space shuttle at Kennedy Space Center in front of onlookers which was the finale for NBC's highest-rated TV special of the year, Vanishing Taj Mahal in front of 400 million viewers, building a $7,000,000 levitating "The Orb" at Studio City in Macau (Seen below).
