Topic: 478: Hans-Joachim Brucherseifer - "Looking For Erdnase"
Message: Posted by: Scott Wells (Mar 7, 2019 10:55AM)
Young German filmmaker Hans-Joachim Brucherseifer is our guest this week on The Magic Word who is the director of a feature film about the mysterious author of "Expert at the Card Table". Hans has a little different twist on his film in that his is a docudrama that follows the leads from researchers who believe the real author is one person or another. He is recreating what the event would have looked like if it was one of the people suggested by the researchers.

A couple years ago I posted a podcast with Jim Davey who was in production with a movie featuring interviews with people who are trying to discover the identity of S.W. Erdnase. At the end of this week's podcast, we read an email from Jim who updates us on the status of his project.

In the meantime, Hans has a Kickstarter campaign going on now through March 25, 2019 in an effort to raise funds to complete this film. You can view the campaign and see a video clip of the film at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fourmatfilm/looking-for-erdnase?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=Erdnase

You can watch an additional trailer of the film, see some studio stills from the film, read the blog, listen online to the podcast and download the MP3 file at: https://www.themagicwordpodcast.com/scottwellsmagic/478-hans-joachim-brucherseifer
