1. This film pays homage to the work of Korean craftsman Kim Soo-Young, winner of the YÉOL Award for Craftsman of the Year 2013. The intense heat required to forge his materials are juxtaposed with the harsh Korean winter landscape in which Kim Soo-Young lives and works.

    Korean folk and rock singer, Hahn Dae-soo, recites an original poem written by Yoon Jiyeong that has been inspired by the footage from this film. The music is a track called "her soft circumference" by offthesky. The track can be purchased through bandcamp.com

  3. We hired our good friend John Downer, who is a professional sign painter & typographer, to fly to LA to do gold leaf lettering on our store window & transom. Glass gilding is becoming a lost art that only a few dozen people in the United States still know how perform. In this video interview with John, he explains this beautiful process in detail.

  4. Watch in HD!
    One in a series of videos I created for the North Carolina Museum of History's exhibit - "Behind the Veneer: Thomas Day, Master Cabinetmaker." I filmed these pieces at Old Salem in Winston-Salem NC. Each short film was devoted to a different woodworking task done using traditional methods. They including turning, planing, cutting, and joining. This is the video for joining. It shows two methods of joining; the dovetail (00:00) and mortise and tenon (01:35). All of these videos are presented on an interactive high definition Flash display that I designed and programmed in the exhibit. To learn more about the exhibit, visit ncmuseumofhistory.org/wgo/press_04122010a.html.

  5. A short documentary I did this summer to help my friend with his leather crafting business. And I finally got it edited!

    Robert Anzaldua is a leather craftsman in Austin, Texas. His talents show through the entirely handmade leather products he creates. Robert has his own company, Sanitarium Leather Works, which is finally taking off. He can make things from dog collars to purses, but his most common work consists of guitar straps. Robert gained interest I this particular craft to find a creative outlet in his life and dell in love with it. Leather crafting is being taken over by machines and manufacturers, but he tried to keep the custom hand-making style alive.
