We are so excited to have created our first short video ever -
Telling stories is important to us and what better way to do this than creating a video of a day in the life of an artist / maker?
Our first video is about Chelsea Miller who creates stunning hand made knives out of reclaimed horse rasp files. This Fiercely Made collaboration was with a very talented filmmaker (and Fiercely Curious artist), Dael Oates, who's skillful team at Chromista helped construct a "point of view rig". (Basically, a helmut that Chelsea wore all day housing a pretty serious camera on the front so we captured everything she saw)!
The all day shoot was a blast and we caught some fun behind the scenes shots showing you how exciting knife making...and film making can be!
(Toe tapping music by our friends and local band, Controller).
Entering Chelsea's Williamsburg studio filled with creatives.
Dael gearing Chelsea up with the equipment.
Chelsea working away at the grinder to sharpen the blade.
Close inspection. Each Chef Knife takes one full day to make, from start to finish.
Our view from the monitor - sparks flying everywhere!
Lunch break on the rooftop.
Back at it - sanding to perfection!
After the day's shoot, Dael was fascinated with Chelsea's tools and photographed many of them which will be shown at our upcoming art + design show: Technology As Hands!
