Ryan Varga created "Makers," a 7-minute mini-documentary on the Toronto mini-Maker Faire. It's a very nicely shot, nicely edited piece that highlights the ingenuity and creative spirit on display at the event.
Held at Evergreen Brickworks, the Toronto Mini Maker Faire celebrated the culture of making, crafting, DIY-ing, tinkering, hacking and sharing. It was a weekend where makers of all kinds shared their projects and thoughts. Exhibits on display included robots, laser cutting, letterpress printing, a 3D print gallery and kinetic sculptures.Mini Maker Faire Mini Documentary. (Thanks, Justin!)
I visited the Toronto Mini Maker Faire at the Evergreen Brickworks to find out what it means to make things - to be a 'maker'?
This film is about that question. It is about the relationship between people and technology and how they merge through the act of making. Call it "craft in an age of digital fabrication".
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
