    Shokunin (Sho-koo-neen) is a Japanese word used to describe an individual that aspires to become a master in their particular craft or art form. Ryan Neil falls firmly into this description, as he has been practicing the art of Bonsai for nearly two decades. In this short film, we get a glimpse at the broader thinking behind a professional American Bonsai practitioner, as well as some of the inherent challenges and aspirations that come along with the pursuit for bonsai mastery in America.

        Mike Heist has been working in the neon industry in Portland, Oregon for 30 years. He is a master in his craft, and is responsible for the bending of some of the city's most iconic signage. 10 SECONDS is a short film about work and happiness, and shares a bit of Mike's thoughts and insight into the amazing process of hand-made neon signage. The Pressure designed the sign as a component of event branding for the AIGA Portland event "Design and Happiness," a lecture by Stefan Sagmeister during Design Week Portland. We thought that this video would add some depth to the concept, and we hope you enjoy it.

              I had the pleasure of working with Tanner Goods to help them showcase some of the incredible equipment that they use in their shop. It was really fun to watch the workshop in motion, and to get to capture the vibe of the space. These machines are truly special, and their operators are talented to say the least. http://www.tannergoods.com/ Direction // Shoot // Edit: Ryan J. Bush Music: Fat Mama - Herbie Hancock

                      We were approached by Tanner Goods to help them showcase the rugged beauty of our home state of Oregon, and how the Mountain Light McKenzie - a collaboration boot from Tanner Goods and Danner Boots - helped us get through some of the rugged, unexplored locations throughout the Oregon Outback. After 6 days of traveling non-stop through our state, we were left tired, hungry, and extremely satisfied. A trip I won't soon forget, and a pair of boots that held up to the beating like a champ.
