Makers is a short subject documentary, filmed at Austin's Maker Faire, 2007, about the people behind the do-it-yourself counterculture and their inventions.
You'll see a life-sized MouseTrap game, a live performance of the EepyBird Diet Coke & Mentos Experiments, and some amazing footage of inventions of all shapes and sizes - some of them going wrong in unpredictable and dangerous ways. Featuring Adam Savage
Makers is the first project of Blogphilo New Media. All subjects are filmed with full permission.

I would be interested in turning this project into a feature-length film if funded. I believe there's much more to be uncovered.
