Over the past weeks I have been working on a pretty exciting project with fellow filmmaker and photographer PJ Rankin and Cinematographer Cristian Paradiso. The goal, to create a series of artistic mini documentaries focusing on crafts. The first of this series focuses on James O'Halloran, a Luthier based near Cork City.

We spent two days shooting with James, learning a great deal about guitars, music and his trade. We were blessed with fabulous weather and great light, I'm very much enjoying piecing together and giving shape to the fantastic footage of James and his surroundings.

So over the next few weeks I will be busy editing this documentary and hopefully we will be able to share the results with you in about a months time. In the mean time do check out PJ Rankin's work at www.dropin-theocean.com
