The Vinyl Frontier Premiere At SDCC 2010
The Vinyl Frontier is finally hitting the big screen this year at SDCC. It will debut Friday, July 23 5:55 pm at the Marriot Hall 1 & 2 at the Marriot Hotel and Marina. Following the highly anticipated art toy documentary, there will be a artist panel featuring Attaboy, Bwana Spoons, Brian McCarty, Frank Kozik, and director Daniel Zana. Daniel describes the film as such…
I started the film about 4 years ago with the desire to document an incredible art movement that I was just starting to get into myself. As I began collecting these toys, i wanted to know more about the process, the artists, the works inspiring the toys, the collectors, etc. So I set out and contacted as many interviewees as I could find to get a more accurate view about the vinyl toy world. The result is a feature length documentary film (my first) that features over 35 artists, collectors, scholars, and toy makers who shed some light on the fascinating and somewhat new mode of expression.
