Gorgeous Short Film About Making Flamenco Guitars, 299 Hours in 3 Minutes

The Art of Making, Alma Flamenca is everything I hoped it would be…no, much better that that. It’s a focus on the artistic process of making a flamenco guitar by a luthier. The cinematography is perfection.

Deep Green Sea, the producers explain: “Pieces of wood, love, knowledge, and 299 hours of work, condensed in a 3 minute film.

“The ‘Art of Making’ series aspires to display and highlight people who 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. We thank them wholeheartedly for their contribution.”
