Homer Liwag is known for his visual design - whether it's with a pencil, camera or a computer. Born in Montreal, raised in Cincinnati, now living in Las Vegas, Homer is everything from David Copperfield's Co-Director/Design Director, to a concept artist, photographer, videographer and editor - sometimes a magician. Although Homer loves design, he can usually be found taking spontaneous pics with his iphone.
Co-Directing with David Copperfield since 2011 and as David's Design Director since 1994, Homer is often multi-tasking between conceptual drawing, design, video production, editing, illusion staging, choreography, lighting and script development. Homer's illusion designs, videos, and photography have been featured in David's live show since 1993, several Emmy-award winning television specials on CBS and with David's top-rated luxury private islands - Musha Cay.
Red Safe, David Copperfield's new movie production company, finds Homer collaborating on design, camera blocking and original concepts for films such as Steve Carell's comedy, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (hangman illusion), the hit Now You See Me and Paranormal Activity 4. Homer also designed the featured explosive escape in The Amazing Race season finale on CBS as well as helping devise David Copperfield's vanish and reappearance with Robin Williams on The Crazy Ones.
