I chose this piece in connection with our assignment, Story Without Words. Also, my “special man friend” is a furniture maker. With the interest of making a film about his work at some point in the near future, I have been looking at films of people making things for guidance. I found this to be a great application of visual storytelling, which created a compelling and dynamic short film without words. I found the editing, specifically that it was in sync with the music, well structured. Contrary to my usual preference, I liked the lack of background sounds. I felt this added to the magical kind of mood. The relatively rapid edits kept me engaged and excited to see what would happen next. This seemed particularly important in cases such as this, with minimal audio stimulation. Lastly, I enjoyed the films use of depth and focus. I found that the high percentage of extreme close ups made me feel a part of the process.
