‘Restrung’ – A New Guitar-Based Documentary

Restrung is a brand new film directed by Mike Enns focusing on the trials and tribulations of Randall Wym Fullmer, who left his high-paying job at Walt Disney to craft small-batch bass guitars.

The film is directed by Mike Enns and will premiere on June 19th at NIFF – a new film festival that the founder of TIFF Bill Marshall has established.




He had always considered making guitars a passion, not an occupation, but in 2007, Randall Wyn Fullmer, an ordinary guy with a cat, turned his lifelong hobby into a full-out obsession.




To launch on this adventure, he did what anyone else would do — he quit his high paying dream job at the Walt Disney Company, leaving behind a successful 20 year career of creating major motion pictures such as “Chicken Little” and “The Emperors New Groove”. It seemed to make so much sense at the time! With Disney in the rear-view, Randall launched his self-proclaimed “Mad Plan” and began crafting small-batch bass guitars full time.




From a beginner’s electrifying success to near break-down, this is a beautiful, honest and inspirational portrait of a passionate craftsperson who walked headlong into a foolhardy dream.

This is a true tale of a life unwound and restrung.
