The search continues: A new docu-drama is about to follow the trails of S.W. Erdnase, the most famous unidentified man in magic history, author of the The Expert at the Card Table. It will combine interviews with knowledgeable folks like Juan Tamariz with reenacted scenes. There is a Kickstarter project running until March 25th to ensure funding of the ambitious film. The mastermind behind this project is Hans-Joachim Brucherseifer, a young German filmmaker. You can watch a brief trailer and listen to an interview with him on Scott Wells‘s podcast The Magic Word here.
Read some of my thoughts and musings on Erdnase here.
Addendum: The funding goal has been reached, 15,185 Euros have been collected. Looking forward to the movie, which should be out by the end of this year!
