The Secret Story of Toys: Action-figure character sculptors

Watch more with these video collections:

The Secret Story of Toys, a short documentary film by Anthony Ladesich about how toymakers sculpt action figure characters. “Basically your job is to observe something as obsessively as possible. That’s the invisible half of the job, and then the visible part is where you then deposit it into this clay.”

Related viewing: Ray Villafane, action-figure character sculptor, and more toy videos.
