The "Deep Step" music video from the Magnus DVD is a featured case study in Sherri Sheridan's new microbudget digital storytelling book "Developing Digital Short Films." Doctor Spook and GeoMagnetic have become pillars in the local San Francisco trance music community by throwing many parties and events throughout the year all over California and beyond.
