Director Judd Ehrlich of Magic Camp and Camp Instructor Hiawatha Johnson join me on Get the Funk Out!

You can listen to today's show here.

On my "Get the Funk Out!" show at 9am Monday April 23 on KUCI 88.9fm, I interviewed Judd Ehrlich (Run For Your Life; Mayor of the West Side) and talked about the world premiere of his new documentary film, MAGIC CAMP at the Newport Beach Film Festival. Also joining us on the second half of the show was Camp Instructor Hiawatha Johnson. Hiawatha Johnson is a magician, a musician, a dancer, a teacher and a choreographer; he also created the Heritage Ensemble and the “Flavor Series" at Randolph College where he is Randolph College’s composer-in-residence.

MAGIC CAMP introduces us to a group magic-obsessed kids congregate at the one place they can be themselves. Tannen's Magic Camp, the most prestigious and well-known magic institution in the world. Director Ehrlich, follows these young magicians and takes us behind the curtain and shows the same stage where superstar magicians like Blaine and Copperfield once performed. The film shows that every young magician wants that same success. But to get there, they need to learn more than sleight of hand and tricks of the trade. They have to find the magic inside.

MAGIC CAMP will have it's world premiere at the 2012 Newport Beach Film Festival. Director Ehrlich, along with his documentary subject will be in the house for the premiere. There will also be a special filmmaker q&a, and live magic to follow the movie!
