MAGIC CAMP. [1]

"No campfires. No sing-alongs. Just magic. Welcome to the REAL Hogwarts."

"Magic Camp" is a documentary film about the Tannen's Summer Magic Camp. The camp (founded in 1972) is a 7-day overnight camp for teens ages 11-21 who have a sincere interest in the art of magic. More than 100 students from around the globe, spend each day with magic classes for both stage and close-up, daily lectures by guests, specialty workshops, competitions, breakout sessions and a different professional show each night. Some graduates of the camp include TV's street-magician, David Blaine, Academy Award-Winning actor, Adrien Brody, Siegfried & Roy protege, Darren Romeo, the "Millionaire's Magician," Steve Cohen, David Kaye (aka "Silly Billy"), and others.

This award-winning film is a coming-of-age story, that not only documents the overall camp experience, but also follows a select few young magicians as they use the camp as a safe place to push through some very difficult life challenges. One of the students is learning to deal with Tourette's Syndrome, and another copes with an near-fatal accident involving his father that happened at home, while he was away at camp. There are family hardships, rough performance critiques, a few heartbreaking moments and quite a few laughs.
