Desperate Acts of Magic — Now on DVD/Streaming

posted by Nell Minow

Magic is in the air. “Now You See Me” had an all-star cast and one of the most entertaining scripts of the year. 17-yearo-old Collins Key wowed the judges on “America’s Got Talent” and how has millions of fans called “Keypers.” And the charming indie Desperate Acts of Magic is now available on VOD and iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and major cable networks including Verizon Fios, AT&T, Dish, and Charter.

Writer/producer/star Joe Tyler Gold told me, “I was a magician for many years and I did tons of kids’ birthday parties and entered lots of magic competitions.  We were looking for something we could produce on a low budget.  I had a lot of magician friends and there was a magic convention in San Diego happening in 2010 that we knew was coming up, so we went at it and put a script together and there you go.”
