 11:15am The Ohio Toy Kick:
The Art of Toy photography and the stories behind the images. Each toy has its own background story. Be they action figures, dolls, superheroes or giant mecha (robots).  The Ohio Toy Kick Crew will talk about using these elements to either create thematic, wacky, or down right mesmerizing shots. Have you ever wanted to see you Groot toy taking a stroll in the woods? How about a Boba Fett Action Figure interacting with everyday objects in your kitchen… or how about small, green army men having a life of their own and invading your work-station when you leave the office. The Ohio Toy kick Crew does this, and toy’ll tell you how to do it too!

Kim DM Simmons
Or better known as The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker was one of the original photographers for Kenner/Hasbro. He is responsible for the classic pictures on vehicle and playset boxes from the original Vintage Kenner Star Wars line all the way through Kenner’s transition to Hasbro until 2000. Those scenes we remember seeing on the top shelves of our local toy stores, that fill our hearts with nostalgia, we owe to him. Not only was he fortunate enough to build sets and photograph Kenner Star Wars packaging, playlets, figures, and catalog pieces, he also photographed Kroger Ice Cream. He often Joked — What more could anyone ask for? One of the first big scene creations he did as a commercial  photographer was the Star Wars Battle Scene in 1982. He carefully documented the entire shoot in order to use it as his master thesis.

Mr Simmons will have Prints from all the film transparencies and digital files for sale at his table.
