SHOTLIST:AP TELEVISION - AP CLIENTS ONLYEl Segundo, California - October 3, 2013+++Soundbites mostly covered with shots of airplane parts and furniture+++1. SOUNDBITE (English) Dave Hall, co-owner Motoart:"We started Motoart in 2001 and we designed this to actually preserve aviation history and make something up into functional art.//here we are 13 years later and we really created something special."2. SOUNDBITE (English) Donovan Fell III, co-owner Motoart:"This looks a lot like my room when I was 10 years old except all the airplanes then were model airplanes. Now most everything in here is real and SO we take vintage aircraft and make furniture out of it and occasionally an art sculpture or two."3. SOUNDBITE (English) Dave Hall, co-owner Motoart:"We really seek out all the old vintage parts, the World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam era War and they are getting more and more difficult to find because one, Homeland Security now restricts us from getting any type of military parts, so what we have has been grandfathered in, but we are getting fewer and fewer of these left in our inventory. What we do have access to is commercial aircraft, the 737's, the 727's, the 747's. Though they are readily available they're not so easy to take down off the aircraft."4. SOUNDBITE (English) Steve OIiveria, D.D.S. a dentist based in Manhattan Beach California:"a lot of the people in Los Angeles have worked for the aviation industry and they can relate to a lot of it//and the pieces just give us a very, very unique office and it gets a lot of conversations started within the waiting room and also though out the entire office. People love the sculptures."5. SOUNDBITE (English) Matt GammeI Senior Associate, GensIer: "These found pieces from different times and different places have found a new life in our architectural environments. I think especially young people who have never seen a DC-8 or pieces of a fuselage up close, when they visit an office or if it's used as an art installation can really appreciate these in a different way."STORYLINE:Motoart, based near Los Angeles International Airport, came up with the idea to create unique pieces of furniture and art out of airplane parts, and business is booming.A 20 thousand square foot facility in El Segundo, California houses the studio, where A-list clients and corporations can't get enough of the original handmade furniture constructed from plane parts that were ready for the scarp yard.Co-owner, Donovan Fell III began creating the sculptures from B-17 propellers and other pieces, but it wasn't until 2001 that he joined forces with sales and marketing expert, Dave Hall to create the company.
