1. This is a short documentary movie that shows the whole process of how John Neeman Tools are being hand crafted.

    "It is a tragedy of the first magnitude that millions of people have ceased to use their hands as hands. Nature has bestowed upon us this great gift which is our hands. If the craze for machinery methods continues, it is highly likely that a time will come when we shall be so incapacitated and weak that we shall begin to curse ourselves for having forgotten the use of the living machines given to us by God."
    Mahathma Ghandi

    Music by Foreign Fields - "Names and Races". Special thanks to the band Foreign Fields from Nashvile (especially for Clayton Fike) for allowing to use their music as a soundtrack for our movie. foreignfields.bandcamp.com/

    __________________________________________

    This video serves as a documentation of craft that I have long been interested in as a Graphic Designer, and someone who appreciates hand made goods. It is wonderful to see a company that thrives in the "small batch" business model, and I hope they continue to make good things for a long time coming. The process of making something as simple as a belt can remind us of the roots of what this country was founded on: Creativity, Entrepreneurship, and Craftsmanship. Hope you enjoy it!

    Special Thanks to:

    Tanner Goods - (Thanks for the interview Sam)
    Alex Toyoshima - (The guy making the belt) - Without you, this wouldn't have happened, so thanks for being so patient and letting me poke around with my camera. || alextoyoshima.com

  4. Tottenham-born Mark burgled his first house at 11, and his life quickly spiralled into a life of drugs, guns and robbery. After two prison sentences, he decided to turn his life around and joined the charity User Voice, formed by fellow ex-offenders. Its mission is to deliver a unique insight into the criminal justice system and bring about necessary reform.

    Shot on the Broadwater Estate in Tottenham as well as central London, the film portrays a man who has the power to engage and influence those who sit on the edge of society.

    Mark is part of the film series England Your England. For more films and information visit englandyourengland.tv, facebook.com/englandyourengland or twitter.com/yourengland

  5. Ray Gascoigne has been around boats his whole life, as a shipwright, a merchant sailor, and now as a ship builder on the smallest dry dock there is: a bottle. This short film, by Smith Journal and Melbourne-based production studio Commoner, picks through the wood chips to tell the story of a craft honed over 60 years, and the man behind it.

    “Javi Mojave” (nickname of Javier García) makes and plays his own musical instruments inspired by African tradition. The distance between Africa and where he lives in Extremadura (Spain), doesn´t prevent him feeling part of this ancient culture, where he hopes to travel in the future.
