Shadedbox worked closely with The Ayzenberg Group and wrote, directed, and produced this “toymation” spot for the new Toy Story RC product.

The project’s total shoot time was a little over 3 weeks. The local Los Angeles Salvation Armies and St.Vincent DePaul’s Society became great collaborators to find interesting props as we made over a dozen trips back and forth. Overall, we used over 400 books: fifteen of which were John Grisham novels, 3 varied sets of Encyclopedia Britannica, and 22 diet books. Unfortunately, 3 Baywatch, 1 Cyndi Lauper, and 4 Robocop VHS tapes were sacrificed in filming this project.
