A Film by Woodruff Laputka
"Toy Man" tells the story of artist Dan Gunderson, who's spent his entire life collecting everything he lays his hands on, including toys. Now, after three years in development, Dan applies an astonishing collection of tens of thousands of toys to his world-renowned works of sculpture. A look into the life and mind of a man obsessed with re purposing found objects, Toy Man offers a unique, vicarious experience of a world comprised of pop-culture, modern symbolism, and the artistic freedoms shared by children everywhere.
