Dead Ringers. Tommy Boy. Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. What do these 3 movies have in common? They’re not the same genre, not from the same year, and no, this isn’t 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon. The common thread is Laurie Mirsky – assistant director in over 30 films, and new owner of Toronto’s coolest 3D design & print shop, 3DPhacktory.

About Laurie Mirsky

Working his way up from assistant director to producer, Laurie has been in the film industry for over 20 years. Film production brought opportunities to work in American network giants like NBC, Universal and Paramount; it also exposed Mirsky to some of the cutting edge technology involved in making props for movies and television. Just like blockbuster movies such as Iron Man, Avatar and the Muppets discovered, Mirsky found that 3D printing was the best solution to help save time and speed up the design process. So he traded in his director’s chair and set forth to create 3DPhacktory.
