This is a short film about a successful businessman with an obsession for building in stone. His artistic side is expressed in his stone wall creations: there are seven which he calls his "Follies." One large circle consists of tall stones brought back from Indonesia. The latest is an amphitheater which seats 500 people. For the past decade, he has travelled from his home in Washington, DC to "Stone Hill", his farm in Flint Hill, Virginia to pursue his passion for building in stone.
The original music was written by Will Hopkins and Ellen Britton and is performed by Will.
Tom Field provided a custom built Hexacopter and together we built a 20ft jib with a gimbal attached to the end.
Mark Godfrey did some of the field recording and provided valuable editing suggestions.
