The setting was already intriguing. A Greek from Pontus, living in Athens is a luthier of some of the best Spanish guitars. His name is Vassilis and he is not only an accomplished luthier but also a charming human. We spend 3 days with him in his small and packed lab in Athens, where we learned a lot, laughed a lot and in general had a great time. The end result combined with the music of Edstard left everyone more than satisfied.
Pedazos de madera, amor, esmero, celo, conocimiento y 299 horas de trabajo, concentradas en una película de algo más de 3 minutos.
La serie “The Art of Making” pretende mostrar y promocionar a gente de nuestros días que, superando el fatalismo y el pesimismo del espíritu contemporáneo, se atreven, con pasión e imaginación, a seguir soñando y creando. Estos amantes del conocimiento y de la emoción, intentan combinar la organización y la precisión de la ciencia con la elegancia, la sutileza y el ingenio del arte. Su oferta es de un valor incalculable y se lo agradecemos profundamente.

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.
In our second film, we meet writer turned knife maker Joel Bukiewicz of Cut Brooklyn. He talks about the human element of craft, and the potential for a skill to mature into an art. And in sharing his story, he alights on the real meaning of handmade—a movement whose riches are measured in people, not cash.

Samantha was born in Australia from Greek parents. She decided to fulfil her dream of opening her own design firm in her homeland (Greece). Despite all the difficulties she faced during the transition, she kept her smile and her spirit up. She is now a well-accomplished designer, with collaborations both in Greece and abroad.
When an idea materializes into paper and continues to magically transform into a deep red fabric, the only thing you can do is let go and follow your heart. We hope you enjoy it!

In this tutorial I show you my take on The Summer Blockbuster look - using the powerful 2 node subtractive colour setup.
Make sure you read the accompanying blog post as it goes into more detail than what's possible in the video - juanmelara.com.au/the-summer-blockbuster-colour-grading-tutorial/
I suggest trying out the techniques on the tutorial footage first, as it's easier to know when you're heading in the right direction. Download all the necessary footage/files from the link above.
