On October 20th, we were giving a speech about An Artisan Designer Toy in the First Craft and Design Days in Valencia, organized by queCraft.
It was a pleasure to be invited in this Days, and more, to be exposing more than one hour our project and exchanging views with the audience.
Thank you for coming!
We divided the speech into two distinct blocks. The first one, answering the question “Wich is the project origin?”, and the second one, “What is this about?”.
Jose exposed the first block. He began presenting us, telling who we are, what we do and what is our experience. Then explained how we came to make a documentary about Designer Toys or Art Toys, and talked about the origin of the Toys, how was its worldwide expansion, classes, resins, customs, etc..
Also said we had gone through a failed crowdfunding experience and, yet, we went ahead with our project. We reduced the budget and seek sponsors. So far we are lucky to have Mondotoyz, Glaspol Composites, Tximino Art, Dibujando y Vinyles Chiles.
We have not finished editing the film, so if you are interested in this adventure you in time to join us.
To conclude his presentation explained the current status of the project and what are the possible ways of distribution.
I exposed the second block. I explained the content of the documentary, I talked about the different stages: Sketching, Modeling, Mold, Casting, Finishing and Packaging. And also on the content of each part, for example, how to manufacture two types of mold: solid mold and flexible mold. And two kinds of casting: solid casting and rotocasting.
I was commenting on what is our method of work in each of the phases and what will be seen in the documentary. I also wanted to refer to the rest of designers participating in the documentary, which are: Jesper Puchades de HX Studio, Sergio Gallegos de Vuitbits, Emilio García de Lapolab, Noé Mendoza de Pipo&Astutto y Erik Lee de Turu Design. I mentioned at some moments of the speech the commonalities and differences between our methods work, because we reached the same goal by taking different paths. And it will be seen in the film.
It was a real pleasure to share our experience with the audience and their response was great. Thank you!
