GorillaBulb Films Presents:
A Story of Invention
“Make Me” is a feature-length documentary about a middle-aged idealist trying to complete the invention of a rocket scientist.
In 1973, an Apollo Space Program engineer proposed mass-production of a new flying-toy. He was rejected by toy maker Wham-O! on the ground that the toy lacked a suitable launch mechanism. As a result, he turned his talent elsewhere.
More than twenty years later, the then-retired engineer shared his toy idea with a handful of his impressionable young relatives.
Handicapped by lack of funds and little technical knowledge, one of these relatives ill-advisedly tried to correct the problems in the earlier version of the toy.
Along the way, he discovered a community of like-minded men and women whose love of ideas is ageless.
“Make Me” is the story of a love of ideas.
