Maker's Wild Documentary: Go Behind the Scenes at Soft Star Shoes

Posted on May 9, 2013 by Elf Martin There have been 1 comment(s)

Several weeks ago, we were approached by a group of young documentary filmmakers who were interested in our company background and shoemaking process. They were working on a project to profile companies handcrafting goods in the Pacific Northwest and asked if they could visit us and film the action in our workshop. We happily agreed!

Director Rick Olson and his team spent a day following a pair of our shoes through the production process as they grew from a few scraps of leather into finished RunAmocs. They also interviewed our founder Tim and co-owners Trish and Larkin.

We're now excited to show the result of their hard work. The short film, titled Maker's Wild, highlights both Soft Star Shoes and Truce Designs (a very cool company based in Portland that makes bags from reclaimed materials). We hope you'll enjoy this rare glimpse into a day at our workshop:

    Very cool! Loved seeing the birth of the Dash. And up-cycling stylish bags, another great work.
