MOVIE REVIEW – MAKER: A DOCUMENTARY ON THE MAKER MOVEMENT

MakerMovie

Maker is a documentary film directed by Mu-Ming Tsai that focuses on the maker movement and the wide variety of topics it entails, such as 3D printing, electronics, biotech, etc.

Numerous interviews with different individuals within the movement are shown and clearly shows the passion they all have. And the film really presses the message across of getting people away from being consumers and becoming makers.

Throughout the documentary, the filmmakers visit various maker spaces and even one biotechnology maker space, and it very interesting to see the facilities on offer.

Two companies formed out of the maker movement, Pebble smartwatches, and OpenROV are also visited, and both illustrate how it is possible to establish companies on the principles of the maker movement.

The film also examines Crowdfunding and how it can provide the financial means for anyone to turn their creations into a consumer product and a successful company.
As an avid supporter of the maker movement, I thoroughly enjoyed the film, and it is an excellent mechanism to introduce people to what the maker movement is. I highly recommend this film.
