We arrived at the shop early in the morning as the first light entered the room. Dust particles danced through sunbeams as we began to move items around the space, debating wardrobe and the shot sequence. Nick entered and listened to what we had planned. He nodded his head, pulled a piece of beaver felt down from a shelf, set it on the table and began to work.
Worries of the wardrobe, makeup, and set dressing fell away. It didn't matter who he was, what he was wearing, or whose hat he was making - in front of the camera camera was a man and his craft, the beauty of his work uncluttered. Watching Nick work froze our day in time and if it weren’t for the light blinking on the camera we would have had no reference to the year.
In a society that often forgets the importance of making something by hand, Nick Fouquet’s artistry is a reminder of what is at the core of this country. We left inspired and grateful to be able to capture a timeless discipline passed down through generations.

Four years after his passing, we still haven't quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film. In just four features and one TV series, he developed a unique style of editing that distorted and warped space and time. Join me in honoring the greatest Japanese animator not named Miyazaki.
For further reading/viewing, I highly recommend:

As a Design intern at The Mill+, I had the privilege of working with some amazing artists. Rama Allen as CD and Chris Palazzo as AD, they both enabled me and pushed me to my limits. I was able to take a much larger role in the project thenI had expected. I worked on the design of all the Sacred Geometry, the Eye, the animation of the titles, the tunnel, and compositing of a few shots.
Breakdown coming soon!
