    Geology of Shoes film is a result of collaboration between film director Petr Krejci and footwear designer Barbora Vesela. The design concept draws inspiration from geological processes such as sediment layers and effects of their erosion in nature. Barbora experimented with creative possibilities of discarded unwanted leather scraps and noted the potential of this overlooked resource. Her investigation resulted in creating new innovative process whilst holding on to traditional craft and celebrating some of the oldest techniques in shoemaking. Multiple layers of leather scrap pieces are added on to a last and subsequently sanded down to allow unique colour and textural pattern to emerge with striking effect. Colour scheme is borrowed from old geological maps where different colour represent different geological strata. Geology of Shoes film has been loved and shared by astonishing number of people and media channels globally since it’s publication in 2013. Design and Concept: www.barboravesela.com

          Over the last 8 months, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to document the inspiring talent of Los Angeles artist, Dave Lefner. I’ve always enjoyed the visceral quality of his work, but now have a very fond appreciation for this incredibly passionate, dedicated and humble artisan. Dave chooses the rarely used medium of reduction linocuts to express his love for the City of Angels as well as preserve the history of it’s ever changing urban landscape. Whether it’s found in the extreme shadows cast from a broken neon sign at midday or in the intricate web of power lines crisscrossed overhead, Los Angeles provides him the perfect inspiration for his detailed linoleum block prints. If you enjoy the short documentary, please pass it on.

            6 years ago Nigel Petrie had a vision that wouldn’t leave his mind, for over 3 years he mentally worked through the steps that would turn his vision into a reality. 2.5 years ago that mental build up, jumped from his head and into his hands, through hard work, persistence, skill and a lot of effort.

                  Who we are is intrinsically connected to what we do and the things we build. So what does a lifetime of making things look like? The Makers of Things - a short film collection by Anne Hollowday - documents the work and workshops of the Society for Model and Experimental Engineers, a sprawling organisation with members all over the world. Their common tools and methods mask a huge array of interests and skills, from experimental tinkerers to woodworkers and librarians, all brought together under the roof of their South London headquarters. The Woodworker Norman Billingham's workshop has been pulled up around him over a lifetime. Chippings, clippings and filings fill a garage used to transform lumps of wood into beautiful pens and functional furniture. Although a scientist by training, Norman is the first to admit he's always been a maker of things. See the remaining three films in the collection here: http://themakersofthings.co.uk/

                    This piece shows the process of worms being transformed into silk, giving up their lives for the fabrics we cherish. This process looks so ancient yet still goes on in many places around the world today. It takes them forever to handcraft each scarf and pillowcase. I'm sure technology will eventually make this process obsolete so I wanted to capture it while it still exists. It's quite beautiful and poetic actually. These women work day in and day out, pouring their love and life into their creations... Perhaps, at times, daydreaming of a different life. View more of our work at http://www.skyboxcreative.com
