  2. A project from bureauofcommongoods.com, Made by Hand is a new short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand—sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.

    Local farmer Megan Paska has witnessed beekeeping as it morphed from an illegal (and possibly crazy) habit to a sustainable, community-supported skill. Mirroring beekeeping’s own ascendance, she found more than just a living: “This is the first time in my life when I’ve just felt absolutely on the right path.”

  3. This is a video showing Copenhagens unique bicycle culture as it looks in the beginning of the early 21st century.

    A monumental motion of everyday people transporting themselves from A to B by pure pedal power.

    -Each day 37% of everybody in Copenhagen arrives at work or education by bicycle.
    -25% of all families with two kids in the city own a cargo bike.

    This video highlights who Copenhageners are and what they do. I shot it over a period of four months.

    Dur: 3 min 26 sec.
