This is a documentary film about Jerry Andrus by Robert Neary and Tyson Smith.
Jerry Andrus was well known among many of the world's greatest performing magicians as one of the best "close-up magic" creators. However, he is equally regarded among scientists, educators and skeptics as a visionary, poet, philosopher, inventor and creator of truly amazing optical illusions.
Jerry's talents have been featured in publications such as Omni magazine and on numerous television appearances. He has performed and lectured around the globe. Jerry's unique perspective and keen eye is always on the lookout for ways in how our eyes can deceive the mind, causing us to question our perception of "reality". He is frequently invited to bring his illusions to scientific and skeptic conferences to illustrate how easily our miraculous human mind can be fooled.
Andrus, the Man, the Mind & the Magic is a documentary about the many talents of this creative genius.
Featuring interviews about Jerry with: John Dearing, Ray Hyman, Andre Kole, Patrick Martin, Reed McClintock, Evelyn Mervine, Scot Morris, Loren Pankratz, James Randi, Michael Shermer, and Jamy Ian Swiss.
Produced by Skeptical Media LLC. In 2008. Directed by Robert Neary. Cinematography by Tyson Smith. Running time: Approximately 75 minutes.
