1. Shot in a couple of hours on 2 separate afternoons, this is Leo who lives in a yurt with his partner and a variety of animals on the edge of Exmoor in the UK.
    He is a craftsman of many talents, and this film shows him turning a piece of wood into a beautiful bowl using a traditional foot powered lathe (which he also built himself).
    We started shooting on the first afternoon, but one of his sheep escaped, so we had to shoot the rest the following afternoon. Unfortunately, the weather was far from perfect and was actually raining lightly.
    It doesn't take him long to turn one of these bowls, and watching him work was a real pleasure.

    Music -
    Conversations with Angels - Luke Richards
    Inner Dream - Barrie Gledden.

    All shot using Canon 7D with EF 24 -105, f4 lens.
