THE ILLUSIONISTS Exclusive Footage: 14 Minute Preview!!!
First of all, I want to thank you once again for your outstanding support throughout last year's Kickstarter campaign and for the awesome messages of encouragement during the documentary's production.
Today is the 1 year anniversary of the first day of filming: exactly a year ago, at around this time, I was in London interviewing the amazing Susie Orbach - psychotherapist, activist, an author of "Fat is a Feminist Issue" and "Bodies." She set the bar extremely high, with 45 minutes' worth of brilliant, thought-provoking insights. In the months that followed, I was extremely lucky to encounter this time and time again: outstanding interviews that could be turned, on their own, into feature-length films. I can't wait to share some of the footage with you.
So, I hereby present you a 14 minute demo of The Illusionists, which covers the main themes discussed in the documentary... It is by no means exhaustive (the film has more than two dozen interviewees, from 8 countries) but it gives a taste of things to come. FYI the video is an exclusive sneak peek, for your eyes only, not meant for public distribution - please do not share the link/password. The video's file size is over 550 MB, so make sure that it loads in its entirety before you click "play" - in order to avoid choppy playback :)

I hope you'll enjoy this and I look forward to hearing your feedback.
All my best,
writer/director/DP The Illusionists
