Worth Watching: First Trailer for Young Magicians Doc 'Make Believe'
"Makes you want to follow you dreams." How often do you hear that kind of praise for a film? Apple recently debuted a trailer for a documentary called Make Believe that follows a few young (teenage) magicians as they attend the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas and battle for the title of Teen World Champion… magician. I've been a lifelong lover of all things magic and the magical and this film looks like it has a bit of both. It seems to have received quite a bit of praise and will actually be hitting theaters right away. I always love finding great indies like this and I'm happy to feature it here, hopefully it'll be coming your way soon.
