Enter the Battlefield is a documentary that follows seven Magic players. While their goal for every game is to defeat their opponent, their life on the Pro Tour is about personal goals. More than anyone, they compete with themselves.
Enter the Battlefield is NOW AVAILABLE on Netflix (in select markets), Amazon Video, Google Play, and YouTube.
ABOUT THE CREATORS
Nathan Holt is a Philadelphia-based producer, writer, actor, and comedian. With a background in theater, Holt has starred in productions by such companies as The Walnut Street Theatre, The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre, Brat Productions, and many more. Short film credits include Maybe Pittsburgh, Poe Unearthed, and The Cat People of Venice. He is the author of two dramatic plays: Like, You're My Friend and All and Take Care Ted, both produced at the Capital Fringe Festival in Washington, D.C.
Shawn Kornhauser has been making films and videos since 2002. His main focus has been creating documentary films profiling the various folk musicians and outsider artists he has met while living in Philadelphia, his home for the past ten years.
Kornhauser started covering the Magic: The Gathering Pro Tour in 2011 when he and his video partner, Holt, produced a short video covering Pro Tour Philadelphia, a project that eventually led to the production of the Magic web series, Walking the Planes, which began in early 2012. Enter the Battlefield marks Holt and Kornhauser’s first full-length feature documentary, an achievement that would not be possible without the help of countless friends and collaborators. VIPs, you know who you are.
