There Are No Female Magicians: Upcoming Short Film Explores Through The Eyes of a Female Magician

Rose and Petal Entertainment and Besties Make Movies present an upcoming short film Queen of Magic, written and produced by women and nonbinary independent filmmakers. 

  The credits introduced new and fresh names: 2022 film Triple Threat director Stacey Maltin; Holly Curran played a recurring character in season one of, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; supporting character/screenwriter Kathy DiStefano; lead producer Gina Marie Rodriguez; and other names are involved in the short film production process.

 The screenplay took inspiration from an English female magician and performer, Adelaide Herrmann, loosely based on her true story portrayed as the first female who dared to pursue her dream by challenging society's patriarchy to become a star magician. “In the feature-length version of the script, there are many odes to Adelaide,” Distefano expressed. “Addison’s character has taken on a life of her own, but the core of Addison’s being is Adelaide.”

The amount of research for the screenplay when Distefano walked up to men on the streets asking, “can you name a female magician?” The result was astounding to hear no from men Distefano has spoken with. 

 An overview of the film explores from the eyes of Addison’s love of magic as she trekked across from Victorian England to the slums of New York City to pursue a career in show business. In addition to the obstacles, Herrmann faced as a woman in the 18th century entering a male-dominated industry. “Every location looked perfect for the Victorian period,” said Curran. “That was a true feat for an independent short film. The sets and environment allow me to settle deeper into the scenes and my character. That ambiance and costumes were a massive help.”

 For safety and practical purposes, an armorer engaged in the production to reenact Herrmann’s dangerous bullet catch was a cold gun with zero blanks used often as possible.

The film began production on the east coast of New York to New Jersey past summer and soon wrapped up tapping just a while ago. “We are working with VFX in post-production to account for the period’s outdoor locations,” said Maltin.

 Queen of Magic has no release date to confirm with crowdfunding less than $10,000 on IndieGoGo.
