Ghost Player: Relive the Magic

Filmmaker Joe Scherrman contacted me and told me about his new movie “Ghost Player: Relive the Magic” which he produced and directed.  In short, Ghost Player is a documentary about a comedic baseball show centered around the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa.

From Ghost Player’s web site:

GHOST PLAYER is a one-hour documentary that chronicles the adventures and misadventures of a boisterous and unlikely team of middle aged baseball players. In 1989, Hollywood went to Iowa to shoot the movie “FIELD of DREAMS”. Little did anyone know this blockbuster would spawn a comedic baseball show starring local ballplayers that would have an 18 year run and travel the world.

Ghost Player has already received acclaim.  On September 1, it was chosen to be shown at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.  Not only that, it has been selected to be shown at film festivals throughout the country.  For those here in the Illinois area, Ghost Player will be shown at the Naperville Independent Film Festival which starts Saturday, September 19th.  Mr. Scherrman informed me of Ghost Player’s screening times:

The Naperville Independent Film Festival is September 19–26, 2009. “Ghost Player: Relive the Magic” is scheduled to screen Sunday September. 20th at 7:10PM and Thursday September 24th at 6:45PM. Mr. Scherrman is participating in question and answer sessions with the audience after each film showing.

Interesting concept for a film and so far, has been received well.  If you get a chance, check it out.
