1. 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 inaugural film, we visit the Breuckelen Distilling Company, the first gin distiller in Brooklyn since prohibition. Founder Brad Estabrooke talks about starting from nothing and the imperfect process of perfecting a craft. His experience bears a lesson for us all: knowing you could fail brings you that much closer to success.

  2. A few months back, I had the pleasure of flying down as a director of photography to Lynchburg, TN to see how Jack Daniels is made - and work alongside the talented team at Arnold World Wide. I got to see the town itself, as well as meet some incredible people who both live in the town and work at the Jack Daniels distillery (this documentary film will be released shortly as well).

    After my stay there, I drove 5 hours north to Kentucky where I got an all access pass (and then some) to the cooperage where every single barrel is made that JD is aged in. It was a much more involved process than I would have ever imagined and was blown away by the amount of hands-on work they do there.

    Armed with my 5D, a glidetrack, tripod and a glidecam (as well as my talented sound man Miles), I set out of shoot the heck out of this place so the incredible editors at Lost Planet in NYC could have their way with it. Here is what they put together with everything I captured in the short amount of time we were there.

  5. Let’s talk whiskey. Please. Then let’s talk copper and heat and fermented gold. Let’s taste what you get when a handful of homebrewers from Texas get together and decide not only to craft their own booze, but to build their own wash stills, heat exchangers and (our favorite) hot liquor tanks. Like an old group of friends swapping the same great stories, Chip Tate and the men behind Balcones Distillery hang out daily with their hammered, patina-ed, crafted-from-the-ground-up equipment. And you can taste it. That glass in your hand? That’s honey, figs, corn, a little sweat (don’t worry), and good ol’ unwillingness to compromise.
