According to the official website, Joe Gold's film "Desperate Acts of Magic" was inspired by his experience as a professional magician, performing over 500 kids birthday parties, and entering numerous magic competitions. Joe wanted to make an authentic magic movie, showing great magic performed by a cast of professional magicians.

In spite of numerous hurdles faced during production, the first official trailer for the film is now online and you can see it here:
