The Art of Making, Alma Flamenca

Pieces of wood, love, knowledge and 299 hours of work, condensed in a 3 minute film. The new episode from the series “The Art of Making”, titled “Alma Flamenca” is available for you to enjoy.

The “The Art of Making” series of films aspires to display and highlight certain people, which go against the spirit of today’s pessimism and desperation. They dare to dream and create with zeal and imagination. Armed with passion for knowledge and emotion, they attempt to combine the precision of science with the elegance and resourcefulness of art.

Created by Deep Green Sea, the film features the playing of guitarist Edsart Udo De Haes and highlights the work of Vassilis Lazarides, an artisan who has been building guitars in Greece for more than two decades. With Lazarides demonstrating the work in progress, the sounds of the finished product provides a soundtrack.

This short film was made by Director Dimitris Ladopoulos who is part of Deep Green Sea. He and the Director Spiros Rasidakis did an excellent job of offsetting the Vassilis’s craftsmanship with Edsart Udo De Haes’s guitar playing and subtle motion graphics.
