The shrinking bank account balance!
Numbers just fade off the bank statement..as you watch .
Then Jason and ALL the Argonauts are in ambush position for your small change!

google ames room and forced perspective
Since Jason is not a relevant part of the illusion your trying to create, next time you ask for help leave him out, it confuses people.
A simple way of doing this is to paint the floor black, then a white stripe on the floor that starts as wide as the hall then the sides get closer together untill being 1ft apart at the end. If this happens in a 25 or so ft hallway then the illusion is decent, people wont want to step on the black part thinking its a hole. Make the white part raised 1 1/2 inches and it really works.
let us know what you come up with
