Magicians: Life in the Impossible

Synopsis: "MAGICIANS follows four world-class magicians on stage and off, exploring how and why these characters so passionately dedicate their lives to the craft of illusion. Their journey takes us from the most humbling of road gigs to grand performances on the biggest of stages, from finding love to terrible personal loss; and to the prospect of losing everything for a dream others don't understand. As we come to understand why each is obsessively chasing his own dream, we'll discover the unhidden secret: far more fascinating than the magic are the magicians themselves."
Genre: Documentary
Production: Subjective Films

so everything works out.

Since the recession,

things have been

kind of tough,

And I've got a big nut.

I've got this castle

I have to pay for.

It's a little bit


So I've just gotta

kind of concentrate

on booking the gigs

And paying the bills.

Yeah, and you--

don't interrupt me.

No, my lips are sealed.

I started magic

at the age of six,

I got a magic set,

and that's typically how

every magician starts

I met frank,

and that was basically--

He brought it to a,

you know...

-A professional level.

-To a professional level,

And I was 18.

It was the smurfs on tour.

You shouldn't

mention that one.

And I did the major part.

No, it's my life.

Yeah, it's your life.

It's true.

I was in

a touring show...

He was the magician

in the smurf musical,


Do you want to make it

a short overview about my--

No, okay.

Go on.

I first came to vegas

when I was 18 years old.

I decided, "okay,

one day you're going

to work here."

-Here I am.

-It was like "alice

in wonderland."

The first time

in vegas, so...

But it's true.

For a boy who wants

to be a magician,

It's still--

vegas is--

that's the place to be.

But here he's

not so well known

as he was in germany.


here he had to

start from zero.

And everybody here

from the business,

They told us,

"oh, you know what?

Don't do vegas.

You're going to lose

all your money."

He's in a meeting?

Everybody in america

Is in a meeting,

all the time.

Can you tell him that frank

called, from illusions?

All right.

Okay, bye bye.

People always still

think that the casino or

the hotel books the show.

In 95%, it's not like that.

It's-- for example,

even copperfield

books his own theater.

He's not booked.

So you see, they don't

approach him

And pay him money.
