The Violin Maker
// March 29th, 2012 // Uncategorized
I found this during one of my regular wanders through Vimeo, and it spoke to me right off the bat. Firstly, it’s about craftsmanship, which is increasingly more important to me. Secondly, it’s intensely personal as a connection between subject, audience and film-maker. And third, it made me want to feel the things that The Violin Maker feels about his work.
If anything, this reminded me of a few simple ideas that make a big difference to me. Be where the action is. Focus on the challenge, not the hardships. Make your passion the one component no one else can use. Create with your clients, not for them. And the one that sticks out most – the product changes over time, so be there to fine-tune and adjust, don’t just sell it and walk away.
