This behind the scenes feature from Breaking Magic recently posted by Billy Kidd features the inner workings of their Sword of Damocles piece. You have to appreciate all the work that goes into the series and the actual danger involved, too. Even something seemingly benign, such as Billy hitting the basketballs with a sword, is more dangerous than one may think because not only is a sword being swung around (and even blunt swords can cause a good amount of damage), it is very easy to hurt, even break, your wrists when hitting things with a sword!

No word on when or if there will be new episodes of Breaking Magic any time soon (at least on the US Discovery channels) but you can keep up with Billy at her website.
