The Secret Story of Toys | The Local Show

Mile Deep Films producer Anthony Ladesich presents The Secret Story of Toys. He takes us inside a local community of sculptors who create what eventually become the parts and pieces for action figures from TV and films such as Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Terminator, Napoleon Dynamite and many more of the largest film and video game franchises.
