The Carpenter


It seems I have a certain soft spot for videos that fall into the category of “Intimate-Documentary-Portraying-a-Skilled-Crafts-Person-Deeply-Engaged With-the-Craft-They-Love” – a genre that I have just coined that should slot in nicely between “Indie Rom-Com” and “Japanese Horror.” Maybe it’s the romantic appeal of getting away from the sterile realm of the digital and getting ones hands dirty.
A prime example is The Carpenter,1 a short film by Deep Green Sea, an Athens-based group of multi-disciplinary artists working in film and animation. The film is part of a series entitled The Art of Making, which also features films on dressmaking and guitar-making.
