Official Trailer for Astounding 'Derek DelGaudio's In & Of Itself' Film
"You can see it for what it is… or you can imagine what it could be." Hulu has unveiled an official trailer for the acclaimed stage show doc film In & Of Itself, a taped presentation of Derek DelGaudio's famous show that first opened in NYC in 2016. DelGaudio's show is technically magic, and you could call him an illusionist, but he doesn't prefer these terms and he refuses to call In & Of Itself a magic show. Which is fine. It's a combination of storytelling and mystery and intrigue and magic all-in-one. This film premiered at a few film festivals last year, and launches on Hulu later this month. It is a taped version of the show, directed by Frank Oz, with a few clever editing tricks during audience interaction moments. And it is ASTOUNDING. This guy is the most innovative, creative magician working today and it's near impossible to figure out how he does his "tricks" (or whatever you want to call them). Highly recommend watching this once it's on Hulu.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Derek DelGaudio's In & Of Itself, from Hulu's YouTube:
