The Makers

  1. Polestar Hearth makes good bread. A micro-bakery in the heart of Guelph, Ontario, they hand craft artisan sourdough the way it's meant to be made: with simple, wholesome ingredients, in small batches, in a brick oven. Check them out at polestarhearth.com

    This video documents the story of a loaf of bread, from mixing the dough with pre-fermented levain to pulling richly burnished loaves from the searing heat of their brick oven.

  2. Project V Distillery began speakeasy style with a small still in Mo Heck's garage. The code name for the project was "Project V"— for vodka. "It kinda got outta hand," says Mo. "We would show up at parties and our booze would get there before us." Two years ago they went legit and are now making some of the finest handcrafted vodka in the Seattle region.

    This is the first in a series of short films we're making about local, handcrafted goods produced in the Seattle area.

  3. My good friend Adam Magers left his full time job to pursue his passion for woodworking.

    Earlier this year he started Timber Furniture KC. He is a skilled craftsman with a heart to seek how vocation, community, and play are intertwined.

    This is a promo video I did for him.

These are the growers and the bakers. The builders. The cutters. The sanders and the polishers.

They create our world.

These are the makers.
