Illusionist Brock Gill takes us behind the scenes of his tour called the Freedom Experience on this DVD documentary. It highlights the struggles and triumphs of putting together a 3 day live sports, music and magic show filled with death defying escapes, illusions, BMX stunt teams, pro skaters, freestyle motorcross, live concerts and the presentation of the Gospel.

Gill does an amazing job of using visuals from the show to illustrate how we can be in chains, suffocating, and facing death each day. He tells the audience that saving faith in Jesus freed him from all of it and that they can have the ultimate “freedom experience” through Jesus too, which is the good news of the free gift offered to us by Jesus. This is one of the first times I’ve ever seen an illusionist present the Gospel; it’s pretty awesome to know that any and all things really do point to our need for Jesus, not just when we accept Him but our need for Him everyday.

Favourite moments on the DVD include backstage goofing with Group 1 Crew, especially in the bonus footage and the tracks by Eleventyseven really compliment the rock vibe of the event. Motorcross star Kevin Johnson and freestyle skateboarder Tim Byrne also make for some great sports entertainment. A tense moment was when they were practicing for motorcross and the air ducts on the ceiling of the venue were too low. Another stand out was when Gill is shot at and catching the bullet in his mouth, so there’s plenty on here to keep documentary buffs and those interested in knowing more about the Freedom Experience entertained.

Freedom Experience is currently on tour across the US; for dates and more information on Brock Gill please visit www.brockgill.com.
