The Art of Making

  1. It’s been more than 20 years, since Manousos left behind the big city. He now lives in a remote village in Crete, surrounded by mountains and the sea. His life and work in the countryside, inspired us for the 4th film in the 'Art of Making' series.

    We felt it was a great opportunity to explore the ways music, math and art intertwine. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed the creation of this film!

    With our thanks to Manousos and all who helped bring this story to life. You can view all four films of the 'Art of Making' series at deepgreensea.net

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. This is where it all began. It was our first attempt to design and produce one of our ideas for a film. Having done the shooting, we were not happy with the result and so we had to scrap the initial idea and start all over. We experimented and improvised with the music, the editing and the graphics until we felt we had something. Having no expectations, we posted it on vimeo. The feedback was quick and overwhelming. People’s comments from around the world, gave us the motivation to continue with more films for the series.
