At the dawn of the 21st century, renegade toy designers, bored with the G.I. Joe status quo, boldly remixed and reassembled the toys of their parent's generation. Birthing a new format of toy and medium of artistic expression, these artists were the first to explore The Vinyl Frontier. A world where Art is Fun!
By exploring a landscape inhabited by a wide range of artists, their creations, and obsessive collectors, the documentary examines the hybrid objects' artistic and commercial value, as well as the creative process of art-toy making. The Vinyl Frontier is a comprehensive look at a fresh and exciting art movement that anyone young at heart and imaginative can enjoy.
Featuring some of today's top designers, collectors and toy producers including: Attaboy, Tim Biskup, Raymond Choy, Luke Chueh, Dalek, Tristan Eaton, Ron English, Huck Gee, Thomas Han, Jim Koch, Frank Kozik, Haze XXL, Joe Ledbetter, MCA, Ferg, Van Beater, Brian McCarty, Dave Bondi, Bill McMullen, Tara Mcpherson, Gary Baseman, Sket One, Joey Potts, Jermaine Rogers, Bwana Spoons, and many many more..
