The first time my breath was taken away by a piece of art was when weaver Meghann O'Brien pulled out a mountain goat wool robe she had been crafting for 3 years called "Sky Blanket".
I was to film her putting the finishing touches on the robe for a movie project I was directing called The Little Things, and watching her spin wool with such mastery and grace was mesmerizing. We joked that if I could, I would film nothing but her weaving day in and day out. Meghann is a cinephile at heart, and appreciates the magic of film. It was the beginning of many "we should film this!" conversations.
Finally "Sky Blanket" is finished and we thought a nice way to honour it would be to capture it in its natural environment. In person, you can feel the energy and soul that went into its creation and I wanted to translate that into this film. Meghann is a beautiful spirit inside and out, and I am very grateful for her offering to have me film the robe. It's pure beauty.
