There are currently seven Magic Phone shorts. All the "past" footage was shot in 2003, while all the "present" footage was shot in 2014. Curtis Retherford plays Ron in both the past and the present. I’m really happy to be able to share this with you today. Magic Phone started in 2002, when Nathan Smith and I wrote and shot two 22-minute episodes of a Magic Phone sitcom as our final college project. We were lucky enough to cast our friend Curtis Retherford in the role of Ron, a character whose whole life revolves around the phone calls he makes with his Magic Phone. This summer, eleven years after completing the original Magic Phone episodes, Curtis came to visit me in L.A., and we decided to revisit the concept. This time, instead of using bad fake mustaches, we used the original 2003 footage of Curtis as Ron, and wrote and shot new "present-day" phone calls so he could interact with that old footage. It was a really interesting writing and directing challenge, and I’m really happy with the final film. We’d love to do more with Magic Phone, and hope to come back to it again. Thanks for watching.
